Dem Rep Nominates Christine Blasey Ford For ‘Profiles In Courage Award’

Published

on

This is just unbelievable. Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) has publicized her intention to nominate Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for a prestigious award. You remember Ford… the woman who bore false witness over and over again against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago. No credible witnesses backed her up and her story was full of holes. It was a political hit job.

Monday evening, Speier tweeted out that she would be nominating Ford for the prestigious Profiles in Courage Award, which is given out by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. “Nominating Dr. Christine Blasey Ford – a true American (s)hero who sacrificed so much to do what was right for our country and for the pursuit of truth of justice – for this year’s Profiles in Courage Award @JFKLibrary. She is an inspiration to us all,” Speier tweeted.

Ford made a name for herself by coming forward and accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault. It was the left’s attempt to stop Kavanaugh from tipping the scales toward overturning Roe v. Wade. None of the details she provided could be verified. She could not tell anyone exactly where or when the assault occurred. Supposedly it was in the early 80s. None of the witnesses she named could remember the party she recalled. One of those was her best friend who could not recall ever even meeting Kavanaugh.

Ford claims she left the alleged party after the attack. She says Kavanaugh pushed her into a room and onto a bed. He then allegedly groped her and tried to remove her clothes. If I remember correctly, she originally accused a friend of his of helping to hold her down too. No one remembers driving her home from the party either. Not even her own parents supported her in this.

From The Daily Wire:

“But it doesn’t matter whether she was credible or not. For Democrats, she tainted a right-leaning Supreme Court Justice, and that’s all that matters.

“The Profiles in Courage award is meant to recognize “a public official (or officials) at the federal, state, or local level whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of Profiles in Courage, President Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, which recounts the stories of eight U.S. senators who risked their careers by embracing unpopular positions for the greater good,” according to the Kennedy Library website.

“Ford may qualify as a public official since she is a professor at Palo Alto University in California.

“The award has been given to 51 recipients, including past presidents Barack Obama, George H.W. Bush, and Gerald Ford.

“Ford said she received death threats after she was forced to come forward (she had originally wished to remain anonymous but Democrats mishandled her accusation, leading to her coming forward) and also received more than $700,000 through a GoFundMe account.

“Speier nominated Ford in part for her “pursuit of truth of justice.” Maybe Ford believes her truth, but the media’s handling of the entire allegation was anything but a “pursuit of truth of justice,” as they rushed to report anything that may have made Kavanaugh look bad and ignored information that may have exonerated him.

“It’s obviously unclear whether Ford will get the award, but considering that the recipients typically promote progressive policies, she may end up winning.”

This is sick, twisted and just plain wrong. The left is rewarding a woman who needs professional help and who they used for a political agenda. She doesn’t need an award, she needs therapy. The same can be said of many on the left these days. Up is down and truth is subjective. There’s no justice in this at all.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun

Published

This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:

Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.

1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.

Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.

Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.

From Fox News:

“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.

“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.

“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.

“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.

Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.

Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.

“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”

“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.

It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
