Democrats Just Blindsided By Congress – Orders Investigation Into Their Dirty Secrets

Published

on

“Turn around is fair play.” I was an adult before I ever heard – or at least before I heard and took note of – that saying.   I was more of a “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” kinda guy. But they both mean the same thing, I discovered: “The rules that apply to me also apply to thee.”

There are, let me say, limits to the application of this axiom. Not everything is allowed under color of so-called “political warfare”, or just because the other side does it. “Blood sport” is not automatically legitimized merely because it’s carried out in the pay of winning an election or cause.

It Is undeniably true, however, that when partisans take a particular tack against their ideological adversaries or inconvenient opposition, those decisions often can come back to bite them — and should.

King David, who knew a thing or two about facing ruthless antagonism from others, once penned these words: “They have prepared a net for my steps … They have dug a pit before me; Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen.” (Psalm 57:6)

Well, well — looks like some falling- into-the-net-they-laid might be on the way for the Democrats’ who aimed to ruin Brett Kavanaugh’s life.

BPR’s Tom Tillison has this to say: “While the media is all over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, uncovering scandalous actions like he once threw ice at someone in a bar, there seems to be no intellectual curiosity on their part to how accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s letter was leaked.”

“A letter that was in the possession of Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., chief architect of the 11th hour ambush of Kavanaugh, who may now have reason to be nervous.”

“Republicans plan to investigate Feinstein’s office to determine whether they leaked Ford’s confidential letter, according to Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark.”

“Feinstein has denied that she or any of her staff is responsible for the letter getting out to the press.”

“Feinstein did push back against the GOP on the news her office will be investigated in a statement released on Monday.”

“ ‘President Trump and Senate Republicans are trying to deflect attention from Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault allegations by saying my staff or I leaked the letter from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford — they’re wrong,’ said the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee.”

“ ‘I honored Dr. Blasey Ford’s request for confidentiality,’ Feinstein added. ‘It was only when reporters were knocking on her door that I referred the letter to the FBI. At no point did I or anyone on my staff divulge Dr. Blasey Ford’s name to press.’ “

“She then tried to flip the narrative, inaccurately saying that she was criticized for not releasing the letter she held all throughout Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.”

“ ‘I find it interesting that the same critics who last week condemned me for not releasing Dr. Blasey Ford’s letter against her wishes are now suggesting I did leak the letter,’ Feinstein stated. “

“But the criticism was more specific to informing the Judiciary Committee of the very serious accusation to allow it to be properly investigated, instead of springing it at the last moment.”

“During his appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Cotton said Democrats ‘betrayed’ Ford.”

“ ‘She has been victimized by Democrats … on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.’ “

“Oh, by the way, now that Democrats have the FBI investigation they wanted, they’re calling for it to be expanded — all of which proves there’s no winning with this cabal.”

A preacher I particularly like shared a story one time about his grandmother’s incurably sunny disposition: “Grandma, I believe you could even find something positive to say about the devil,” he chided her one day.

“Well,” she replied, “his is persistent, isn’t he.”

I often reflect on those words when contemplating the political and cultural Left: they simply do not give up. If they can’t win at the ballot box, they aim at victory by shanghaiing the courts – local, state or federal. If they can’t shoot down a Supreme Court nominee via attacks on his judicial record or views, they switch tactics to directing scurrilous and dubious charges against him.  Hey, whatever it takes, right?

But just because “Democrat” begins with a “D” doesn’t mean determination should be their sole preserve. I mean, “Republican” and “resolution” also kick off with the same letter as well, right? Turn around is fair play …

Again, “whatever it takes” is not a standard which decent people embrace – there are limits on what honor permits. Still, when the anti-American, anti-Liberty, anti-God ranks of modern progressivism begin playing political hardball, it’s often time for those opposing them to hold them to their own set of rules – and not back off.

It’s certainly not a call to throw in the towel, to surrender to the inevitability of it all. That’s exactly what the forces arrayed against a judge who, by all trustworthy indicators, is a decent man – Brett Kavanaugh – were counting on. They count on it regularly: hoping to wear out those who stand in their way.

That option principled persons cannot permit to happen.

So, in this case, the scoundrels among Senate Democrats – and that comprises an awful lot of people — wanted to take Brett Kavanaugh and his boosters through the investigative ringer? It’s time to subject some of them to the same.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun

Published

on

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:

Posted by Douglas Nicholls, Yuma Mayor on Tuesday, April 16, 2019

“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

VIDEO: Illegals Cross Border & Walk Past 5 Members Of Congress Unnoticed

Published

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

Unbelievable. A group of five congressmen touring the Arizona-Mexico border to see smuggling activity completely missed the four illegal immigrants nearby who were able to cross the border undetected right behind them. They were very lucky these weren’t violent criminals or cartel foot soldiers. This happened near Yuma, Arizona on the US border with Mexico.

Three women and one child went undetected as they illegally crossed from Mexico to Arizona through the Colorado River and walked right past a group of five congressmen. A Washington Examiner reporter was reporting at the border when this happened and got the scoop. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) was leading a tour for four Republican congressmen — Matt Gaetz of Florida, John Joyce of Pennsylvania, Pete Stauber of Minnesota, and Dusty Johnson of South Dakota — who were seeing the southern border for the first time.

How embarrassing. Didn’t they hear them? They were just a few hundred feet behind them crossing the river. Evidently, the group of women waded across the water and were able to stay out of sight of lawmakers due to the overgrown water plants and brush on the edge of the water. Still… they had to make quite a bit of noise.

A couple who retired to the area said they were the ones who flagged down a nearby Border Patrol agent. “I didn’t call anybody. I was sitting in there watching TV — knocking on the door. There’s four of them here. They wanted aqua so I went and got ’em a bottle of water,” said Dennis, who did not share his last name.

“I walked ’em out here — said they need to go up there,” Dennis said, as he pointed to the dirt road agents use to drive up and down the border. “Said they don’t want to go up there. Then Border Patrol came.” His wife, Barbara, had been out walking their three dogs on the dirt road when the group of four approached their home.

“I’m trying to motion them, ‘No, they gotta go up here to be picked up,’ because that’s where they usually get picked up. They usually turn themselves in,” said Barbara. “They were nice and smiling and all that, but they were bound to walk to Yuma.” None of them spoke English or at least played dumb on that count. Barbara could not tell where they were originally from. She said maybe El Salvador since one was wearing a hat with the country’s name on it. Gee… a clue.

From the Washington Examiner:

“A Border Patrol agent pulled up right in front of the Washington Examiner reporter and spoke with the group for a few minutes before asking them to get in the back of his pickup truck.

“So my husband walked up there — normally law enforcement’s up there. The guy happened to be right where Dennis could motion him to come here and point down the road, they were right here heading down the [other] road,” she said.

“Barbara said she and her husband have lived on the border in their current house for 5 1/2 years. They said incidents like the one on Tuesday evening were normal, but that most individuals or groups who come over the river illegally just stand on the dirt road and wait for agents to find them instead of knocking on their door.

“We had four of them that went down there the other day. We had one that was higher than a kite was out here yelling at things,” Dennis said.

“In the past several months, it’s getting to be more and more,” said Barbara. “It’s pretty much like a sieve right here because all we have are vehicle barriers and the river is very shallow right here. You can just wade across.”

“Dennis estimated 50 to 500 people are coming across “right there” daily.”’

That’s a lot of illegal aliens and it makes that area very, very dangerous. Hope that couple is armed. They don’t feel safe and I don’t blame them in the least.

This happened on the same day the mayor of Yuma, Arizona declared an emergency there over illegal immigration. This is just getting worse and worse. Instead of taking tours, these politicians should be backing Trump and getting funding for the wall in place. #WeBuildTheWall
