Man wrongly outed as President Trump supporter, forced to go over “situational awareness” with his family

Joaquin Castro: He didn’t mean no harm to Trump supporters…

Expect things to get much, much worse as we head into 2020.

And, no matter who you are, “situational awareness” is ALWAYS a good thing. I suggest MAGA supporters practice this daily.

From Fox News: A San Antonio man was wrongly outed on Twitter as a donor to President Trump by Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro and said Friday the incident forced him to review emergency plans with his wife and three children.

Harper Huddleston said on “Fox & Friends” that his name appeared on Castro’s list instead of the name of his retired father, who contributed to the Trump campaign. He said the mix-up was because they share the same first name, but have different middle names, though his father does not go by the name Harper.

Huddleston said he supports Trump and has contributed in the past to the mayoral campaign of Castro’s brother, Julian, who is now running for president. He said he was glad to have received the negative attention instead of his father, but explained that he was forced to go over emergency plans with his wife and three children.

“We convened together as a family and talked about situational awareness, exit strategy, avoiding and exiting conflict, talked about staying low and close to home and just being at our very highest senses,” said Huddleston.

Castro, D-Texas, has refused calls from the Trump campaign and Republicans to delete the post, arguing the names of the donors are publicly available.

“Unless you support the white nationalism and the racism that Donald Trump is paying for and fueling, then I hope you, as a person of good conscience, will think twice about contributing to his campaign,” said Castro in an interview on MSNBC, where he was pressed by host Willie Geist about the likelihood that people will be harassed.

“I don’t want anyone on the left or the right to be a target of any crazy person or any person that means them harm at all,” he responded, claiming the names were already circulating before his account posted them.

Huddleston argued that when Castro, as a sitting congressman, tweets such a list, it reaches a “very large audience” and he attempted to connect “fine members of this community” to racism and white supremacy.

“Moms, dads, retirees and to associate these people with those types of claims is just wrong,” he said, arguing that he believes Castro’s actions will actually motivate the president’s supporters.

“All this does is galvanize the interest and reinvigorate making America great again,” said Huddleston.

On Thursday, another of the donors from the list, Mark Hanrahan blasted Castro for his “galling” decision.

“He knows exactly what he’s doing,” said Hanrahan, adding that his father fought in World War II and he refuses to be “bullied with slurs of racism.”

Latest jobs report is excellent news for Americans

From Daily Mail: Donald Trump boasted ‘JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!’ Friday as new figures showed employers sharply stepped up their hiring in June, adding a robust 224,000 jobs, an indication of the economy’s durability after more than a decade of expansion.

But he launched a new attack on the Federal Reserve because the strong performance on jobs makes it far less likely that the central bank will cut the cost of borrowing this month.

Most investors have anticipated a rate cut in July and perhaps one or two additional Fed cuts later in the year.

But the initial reaction in the financial markets suggested increased uncertainty about Fed rate cuts.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 98.25 points, or 0.36%, at the open to 26,867.75. The S&P 500 opened lower by 11.57 points, or 0.39%, at 2,984.25. The Nasdaq dropped 46.95 points, or 0.57%, to 8,123.28 at the opening bell.

At the White House Trump said of the new jobs figures: ‘We are very happy about it. We are going to be breaking records.’

But then he turned on the central bank, whose chairman Jerome Powell he appointed and said: ‘We don’t have a Fed that knows what they’re doing. If we had a Fed that would lower interest rates we would be lock a rocket ship.’

Read the whole story here.

According to Congressman Jim Banks (R-Ind):

224,000 new jobs created
3.1% wage increase
105 straight months of job growth

More Americans than estimated entering the workforce
The latest Labor Dept. report shows why pro-growth policies mean more jobs & higher incomes for all Americans.”

Sounds like excellent news for America!

Yet it will not be enough to satisfy those with TDS. They will just continue to wallow in their perpetual hate and temper tantrums.

MAGA: President Trump raises $24.8M for re-election in less than 24 hours

From Yahoo: President Trump held a rally in Orlando on Tuesday night billed as the kickoff to his reelection campaign. And according to the Republican National Committee, he received nearly $25 million in contributions in less than a day.

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel announced Wednesday that Trump raised a “record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election.”

“The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen!” she tweeted.

RNC chief of staff Richard Walters told Yahoo News that the total is a combination of the amount raised by the Trump campaign and Trump Victory, the joint fundraising arm for the campaign and the RNC.

The RNC took in $10.8 million from major donors at two fundraising events, while the Trump campaign raised $8 million through a phone drive and about $6 million in online donations. (The average online donation was $44, Walters said.)

Trump’s one-day haul is nearly four times the amount former Vice President Joe Biden raised in the first 24 hours after announcing his 2020 presidential campaign.

Biden took in $6.3 million, the largest first-day total for any of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. According to Biden’s campaign, the money was raised from nearly 97,000 individual donors across all 50 states.

The former vice president’s campaign raised slightly more in its first 24 hours than former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke ($6.1 million) and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders ($5.9 million).

Biden, though, has faced criticism among Democratic rivals for his embrace of high-rolling donors and top-dollar fundraisers.

“I don’t spend time at fancy fundraisers,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted earlier this week. “Instead, I spend my time meeting voters and thanking grassroots donors who chip in what they can.”

Covington High School student suing CNN for over $250 million

I hope they pay big time.

From Fox News: CNN is likely to be hit with a massive lawsuit worth more than $250 million over alleged “vicious” and “direct attacks” on Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann, his lawyer has told Fox News.

Lawyer L. Lin Wood discussed his decision to sue CNN for its reporting and coverage of his client during an interview that will air on Fox News Channel’s “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday at 10 p.m. ET.

CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes,” Wood told Fox News host and best-selling author Mark Levin.

“They really went after Nicholas with the idea that he was part of a mob that was attacking the Black Hebrew Israelites, yelling racist slurs at the Black Hebrew Israelites. Totally false.”

“Now you say you’ve seen the tape; if you took the time to look at the full context of what happened that day, Nicholas Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong. He was, as I’ve said to others, he was the only adult in the room. But you have a situation where CNN couldn’t resist the idea that here’s a guy with a young boy, that Make America Great Again cap on. So they go after him.”

Wood continued: “The CNN folks were online on Twitter at 7 a.m retweeting the little one-minute propaganda piece that had been put out. … They’re out there right away going after this young boy. And they maintain it for at least two days. Why didn’t they stop and just take an hour and look through the Internet and find the truth and then report it? Maybe do that before you report the lies.”

Wood then detailed the timing of the suit, saying it will be issued “Monday, Tuesday at the latest.”

“I’ve got some young, smart lawyers that are working hard as we can,” he told Levin. “Double-checking, and listen, when we file complaints, we’ve investigated it because we want to get it right. Maybe CNN can learn from that.”
Fox News has reached out to CNN representatives for comment on the pending litigation.

Wood filed suit last month against The Washington Post. The suit calls for $250 million in compensatory and punitive damages over the paper’s coverage of the confrontation, an encounter that went viral on social media. He told Fox News that the claim against CNN is apt to be even higher.

“I expect because of the way they went after Nicholas so viciously, that the claim for his reputational damage will be higher than it was against The Washington Post,” the veteran attorney said.

“The Post was $50 million for the reputational damage … $200 million in punitive damages — punitive damages are designed to punish and to deter. I would think the punitive-damage award against CNN that we’ll seek will be at least the same $200 million as it was against The Washington Post. But the compensatory damage to Nicholas’s reputation, that number I expect will be higher.”

The lawsuit against The Washington Post accused that outlet of practicing “a modern-day form of McCarthyism” by targeting Sandmann and “using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles … to smear a young boy who was, in its view, an acceptable casualty in their war against the president.”

Several days ago, The Post published an editor’s note admitting that subsequent information either contradicted or failed to confirm accounts relayed in its initial article. The editor’s note was not satisfactory to Sandmann’s legal team.

MAGA hate crime: Black student assaults white for MAGA hat

Edmond Santa Fe High School is a public school with approximately 2,100 students in Edmond, Oklahoma.

The Edmond Sun reports that last Monday, Feb. 25, 2019, during a school fundraiser, Double Wolf Dare Week, an “altercation” between two Edmond Santa Fe students resulted in a ticket of summons being issued to one of the male students, Kenneth Dewayne Jones, 18.

A video of incident was sent to The Edmond Sun, which shows an older black male and a white underage male involved in the altercation. The underage student was wearing a red MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat and a Trump banner as a cape.

The black student can be heard name-calling the white student: “Take it off or I’ll rip it off … do you want me to rip it off?”

The white student attempts to sidestep the confrontation, but is blocked by the older black. The words of the younger student are not clear in the video.

The older male then knocks the hat off the younger male. Another student tries to intervene in a nonviolent manner.

A school resource officer issued a ticket to Kenneth Dewayne Jones, who is named on the municipal court summons on an offense of assault and battery. He has not been formally charged.

A mediation process is the next step facing the students.

Edmond Police spokeswoman Jenny Wagnon said: “How the summons works is that the student who is an adult, who was given the municipal summons, and the parents of the other student in the hat — those parents will have to contact the city attorney’s office within five days. And then both parties will meet with the city attorney and try to work something out. If not, then it’s up to the city attorney to file the assault charges against the student who is an adult.”

The Edmond Public Schools district refused to release the name of the adult student. School spokeswoman Susan Parks Schlepp said:

“In the video, a student is seen confronting a classmate who is wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and carrying a ‘Trump’ flag. The student then proceeds to grab the flag and knock the hat off of his classmate’s head. Given that hats were allowed at school yesterday as part of the week-long fundraising events, there was no specific dress code violation. The student’s choice to grab a classmate’s property and knock his hat off did, however, violate the school’s discipline policy. In response, Edmond Santa Fe High School administrators, working simultaneously with Edmond Police, addressed the incident with swift and immediate disciplinary action. The school district honors students’ First Amendment rights, but must at the same time be vigilant in teaching and supporting students as they learn how best to respectfully express their opinions.”

A police report was not available Tuesday morning, but police continue investigating the incident.

MAGA hate crime: 81 y.o. man assaulted for wearing MAGA hat

More hate crimes against Americans wearing MAGA hats.

On February 25, 2019, at around 3:24 p.m., police responded to a call of a dispute at the ShopRite on Elizabeth Avenue in Somerset, New Jersey.

Arriving officers found an 81-year-old man suffering from minor injuries.

The victim told officers that as he was exiting the store after purchasing his groceries, a man confronted him regarding his red MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat, according to the prosecutor’s office.

A brief verbal confrontation ensued. As the victim turned to walk away, the attacker grabbed the victim’s hat and the two struggled for possession of the hat. The attacker then took the victim by the arm and threw him to the ground, tipping over the victim’s cart of groceries and  throwing his hat to the side.

Happily, police arrested the attacker, Ryan M. Salvagno, 19, the same day.

Salvagno is charged with assault, a disorderly persons offense, and harassment, a petty disorderly persons offense. He is scheduled for arraignment on March 14 in Franklin Township Municipal Court.

Sources:  Bridgewater Courier News; Canyon News

In some states, assault on an elderly victim is categorized as aggravated assault that carries more serious penalties, but apparently not in New Jersey.

Kentucky man arrested for pulling gun on couple wearing MAGA hats

It’s a war zone out there.

The Left have declared war on Americans who are patriots. It’s just that the complicit media haven’t told us.

On February 16, 2019, at a Sam’s Club in Bowling Green, Kentucky, a 57-year-old man named James Phillips pulled a gun on Terry Pierce and his wife because of their MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats.

The Pierces were at the checkout line when Phillips gave them the finger.

Mrs. Pierce said to Phillips: “Excuse me. Did you flip us off?”

Phillips went into an obscene tirade and said: “Yes, I did, because of those hats.”

Mr. Pierce moved in front of Phillips and said: “What gives you the right to flip me off? Because of the hat I’m wearing?”

Phillips pulled a gun out, pointed it in Pierce’s face, and said: “This is a good day for you to die.”

Pierce: “Then pull the trigger. You either pull the trigger or put the gun down and face me like a man.”

Phillips started to back away, but said again: “Yeah, this is a good day for you to die.”

Pierce stood his ground. As the two men continued to argue, Phillips backed away and stuck his gun in the backside of his belt.

ABC13 WBKO reports that Pierce said Phillips accused him of assaulting him, but Pearce never touched Phillips.

According to the police report, surveillance video confirms Pierce’s story that he did not put his hands on Phillips. Police say Phillips had a Glock .40 caliber with a round chambered in his back pocket and two additional magazines in another pocket.

Phillips was promptly arrested, charged with “wanton endangerment” and is in the Warren County Regional Jail.

Fox News points out that if this were a conservative pulling a gun, the news would be plastered everywhere. Watch the Fox News video here.
