Lindsey Graham’s Public Statement About Trump’s Nobel Peace Prize – ‘Liberals Will Be Jumping Out Of Buildings’

Published

on

If it happened, it would constitute one of the truly astounding developments of what has been a truly astounding, unpredictable, rollercoaster or an era of American history: Donald Trump, Nobel Peace Prize winner.

TMZ reports, “Lindsey Graham says President Trump might not be deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize just yet, but if he wins it anyway … liberals are going to lose it. … Graham says [Trump has] done a lot to deserve it by fighting ISIS and taking on Iran, but needs a little more help from North Korea.”

“As for the libs, Sen. Graham thinks if 45 manages to nab the Nobel, they’ll be so distraught they’ll head for the nearest window … and take the leap.”

“Lindsey also throws some shade at past Peace Prize winner Barack Obama …”

“The 2018 Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced in Oslo Friday. BTW … Kim Jong-un is the top favorite. What a world. ”

Graham’s conduct, indeed, reveals lots about conservatives, liberals and honorable conduct.

Honest observers and analysts — even those who are not the biggest Trump fans — ought to be willing to grant our current President credit where it is his due. That would be called intellectual consistency. (For the record and conversely, that would also include a willingness to say it when one takes issue with DT on a particular matter.)

Curiously, the same approach could be suggested — and it seems is unfolding — towards Senator Graham himself.

Would it be an understatement to acknowledge conservatives and many Republicans have had their beefs with the Senator from South Carolina over the years?

Not a few times, along with his good friend John McCain, Graham’s paeans toward “bipartisanship” and “moderation” have functionally translated into infuriating outrages against constitutional/limited-government principles.

But lately? Look up the words “Lindsey Graham” in the dictionary and you’ll find the definition: “rock star”. His blistering and fact-based drubbing last week of his unscrupulous, hypocritical Democratic peers on the Senate Judiciary Committee was nothing-less-than historic stuff. Riveting. Unforgettable. And I meant that in the best way.

The sixty-three-year-old lawmaker’s willingness put aside any offense he may have absorbed from then-candidate Trump during the 2012 Oval Office campaign is striking. Recall, Graham ran for the position (and went pretty much nowhere for his efforts); and the two most definitely were at barbed odds with one another. That said, Graham has rejected any temptation to obstruct, for sheer, vengeful cussedness’ sake, the laudable policies the President has advanced. That kind of magnanimity from people in positions of power? It’s something the general public sees far too infrequently in our increasingly fraught, polarized age.

Graham’s statement also brings to mind Barack Obama’s receiving of the Norwegian award. Mind-bogglingly, he had officially occupied the White House mere days when he was nominated for it (his name was submitted barely under the deadline), and he’d been in office less than ten months when he snagged the honor.

Why’d BHO win the thing? Citing Wikipedia’s concise summary, it was for his ” ‘extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples’…  promotion of nuclear nonproliferation … and [for fostering] a ‘new climate’ in international relations … especially in reaching out to the Muslim world.” In other words, the famously pontificating former president said a bunch of nice words in public about getting along with everyone else.

Yes, words do matter — but rarely, all by themselves, are they enough. Here we are, a couple years removed from his two terms at 166 Pennsylvania Avenue – and we get it: Barack Obama could give a decent speech. But beyond that? Inarguably, he stands one of worst presidents in the United States’ two-hundred-forty-two-year history.

Letter-writer Joel Darmstadter in, of all places, the Washington Post(!) put it well: “Then-President Barack Obama had barely had an opportunity to appreciate and meet the qualifying test laid down in Alfred Nobel’s will: having ‘done the most or best work for fraternity between nations.’ ” Then citing “[n]ot a trivial list of Obama administration failings,” he recommends, “An honorable, if belated, step would be to return the prize to Oslo marked ‘unused.’ ”

Even Trump critics have to admit, not a few welcome things have been happening on the domestic and, more pertinent to the Nobel Peace Prize speculation, international front since his tenure kicked off in January 2017. Senator Graham — one of those formerly sharp critics and someone still willing to mention when he takes issue with “45” — would be an example of a high-profile person willing to acknowledge that.

As Graham’s jest implies, too many Leftists won’t tip the hat to Donald Trump under any circumstance, in no instance, no matter what he does or doesn’t do. That would be providing the American people with a ghastly snapshot of unedifying pettiness.

Graham is probably also correct that the world-community jumped the gun conferring the Peace Prize on Obama — and Democrats did the same in cheering that choice. Republicans and conservatives, alternatively, can display some much-needed circumspection in encouraging a bit more time before DT receives the same citation.

One other thought: Mass murdering megalomaniac Kim Jong-un is a top horse in this contest? If that’s the case, President Trump genuinely might want to consider turning down the prize if it should be offered to him. If someone like the North Korean maniac is under serious consideration by the Norwegian committee, how much can the Nobel Peace Prize be worth no matter who finally snags it?

Let’s hope Trump is nominated at any rate, because it would be the next best thing to him winning in 2016 in terms of how liberals respond.

Here’s Graham.

Ocasio’s ‘Squad’ Implodes At Press Conference On Trump Tweets

Published

on

The “Squad” held a press conference to bash President Trump on Monday concerning tweets that he put out that they are now claiming are racist. None of that is true by the way… what is true is that these are socialists and communists and they hate America… all of which Trump correctly pointed out. The four Marxist radicals literally melted down in front of reporters while making multiple false statements and refusing to answer specific questions from reporters.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) hosted the press conference to address recent attacks by Trump, who has highlighted their behavior and said they are anti-American. The truth hurts and there is no arguing with that premise… Trump is right on all of it.

Omar was the worst of the lot during the conference. She told one lie after another. For instance, she said, “This is a president who has called black athletes ‘sons of b*****s.’ This is a president who has called people who come from black and brown countries ‘sh–holes.’ This is a president who has equated neo-Nazis with those who protest them.”

All of that is untrue and is targeted propaganda from the left. Trump referred to athletes who kneel during the National Anthem as “sons-of-b*****s,” not black athletes. Context is everything here and words matter. Trump referred to certain countries as “sh-tholes,” not black and brown people. Trump did not equate neo-Nazis with those who protest them, he specifically condemned them.

From The Daily Wire:

“Omar went on to claim that Trump was accused of criminally colluding with Russia to undermine the U.S. election, despite the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller stated in his report on his Russia investigation that the Trump campaign did not conspire with Russia.

“Omar also spread conspiracy theories, claiming without evidence that Trump was trying to promote “an agenda to allow millions of Americans to die from a lack of health care.”

“Omar also refused to deny that she was a communist and that she is pro-al-Qaeda, a question that emerged after footage of her emerged from 2013 where she laughed when talking about ISIS and al-Qaeda.

“Omar defended her past anti-Semitic remarks when pressed by a reporter on if her past comments gave legitimacy toTrump’s criticisms against her. Omar said that everything she says comes “from a place of extreme love for every single person in this country.”

“Pressley also made remarks that stirred controversy, as she refused to refer to Trump as the president, saying, “I will always refer to him as the occupant.”

“Ocasio-Cortez tried to claim that Trump was attacking them because he is not competent enough to defend his policies.

“Weak minds and leaders challenge loyalty to our country in order to avoid challenging and debating the policy,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This president does not know how to make the argument that Americans do not deserve health care. He does not know how to defend his policies, so what he does is attack us personally.”

“Trump’s attacks come as a new Democrat internal poll revealed that Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and their socialist agenda are extremely unpopular in swing states, with voters only approving at 22%, 9%, and 18% respectively.

“In reaction to the poll, a top Democrat involved in the 2020 congressional races told Axios: “If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk. [S]he’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races. Socialism is toxic to these voters.”‘

One thing became glaringly apparent during the press conference – this “Squad” hates America and everything she stands for just as President Trump pointed out. They imploded during the press conference and gave a tremendous gift to Trump. He can now bludgeon the left with the truth about their Marxist underpinnings. He has successfully moved the Overton Window once again.

Trump has successfully linked Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats to the uber radical “Squad” and their disastrous socialism. It’s actually quite brilliant and I am impressed. They don’t even realize that they are in fact a “Suicide Squad.”

“This fight w/ the squad is exactly where Trump wants 2020 fought,” tweeted Amy Walter, a political analyst for the Cook Political Report, a campaign handicapping tip sheet, on Tuesday. “The more media/Dems engage him, the better for him. All this fight does is re-polarize the partisans and leaves the up-for-grabs voters (who want to hear about bread-butter issues) tuned out.”

Even CNN and others that lean left are now saying that the “Squad” is actively helping Trump earn a second term. “The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four ‘progressives,’ but now they are forced to embrace them,” tweeted Trump on Monday night. “That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!” And that is a winning platform for the 2020 presidential race for Trump.

WATCH: Ilhan Omar Laughs When Reporter Asks Her To Condemn Antifa Violence

Published

on

Doing the actual reporting the MSM won’t do. Keean Bexte from Rebel Media cornered the radical members of the Squad and asked them if they would condemn an attempted terror attack by a self-identified far-left Antifa member against an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) refused to do so. Instead, they seemed to find it very amusing.

Omar actually laughed when she was asked about the far-left violence. “Will you condemn Antifa?” Bexte asked Ocasio-Cortez and Omar. “Do you feel like you have any sort of responsibility for their actions?” Both remained silent in their solidarity with a communist Antifa terrorist and his violent actions. Bexte doubled down and it was epic: “It’s just like your brother — when you ignore the questions about you marrying your brother, you couldn’t answer it,” he said. “Do you feel responsible for the violent attack abasing the ICE facility?” Crickets.

“It’s easy to condemn terrorism, will you condemn it?” he said. “Antifa firebombed a facility in Tacoma over the weekend – it’s an ICE facility. Will you condemn them for that? I mean, firebombing a concentration camp is kind of a laudable thing, if it actually is a concentration camp. You must be happy that they did it, no? Are you pleased? Should more people do it? It’s easy to say no. It’s really easy to say no.”

From The Daily Wire:

“As reported by The Daily Wire last month, questions surrounding Omar’s apparent marriage to her alleged brother resurfaced when newly-discovered documents suggested the representative lived with her current husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, while being legally married to Omar’s alleged brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.

“It kinda blew up in your face when you didn’t respond about your brother — it made it look like you married him,” Bexte said. “You could finish that question now, if you have an answer. Did you marry your brother?”

“Omar, stone-faced, again refused to answer.

“Do you feel like you bear any responsibility for what happened?” the reporter continued. “Ms. Cortez, do you feel responsible at all?”

“Directing his attention to both representatives, Bexte against asked: “Will you tell Americans not to be violent anymore?”

“This is when Rep. Omar, holding her Starbucks drink, is seen and heard laughing on video.

“As noted by The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra on Monday, the man who attacked the ICE facility over the weekend reportedly “used the same ‘concentration camp’ rhetoric” popularized by Ms. Ocasio-Cortez in his manifesto.

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are,” Ocasio-Cortez said in June. “They are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t, I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever.” The open socialist then mentioned the phrase, “Never Again,” a reference to the Holocaust.”

Willem Van Spronsen, 69, was shot and killed by police outside Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington, on Saturday after he hurled Molotov cocktails at the building and cars. He also had a rifle – he was armed. One of Spronsen’s friends described him as an “anarchist” and “anti-fascist,” according to the Seattle Times.

Van Spronsen was a violent member of Antifa that had attacked police at that facility previously. He was also a member of the Puget Sound chapter of the John Brown Gun Club, a militant communist organization promoted by CNN. The John Brown Gun Club was promoted by CNN as recently as April where a commentator claimed the organization was “white, liberal, progressive people, inclusive, friendly to the world.” A man appearing to be Van Spronsen can be seen four seconds into a promotional clip released by CNN for their segment.

On Twitter, Bexte wrote: “After repeatedly asking @Ilhan and @AOC if they would condemn the Antifa firebomber, and if they felt partly responsible, the two got into their SUV and Omar (likely thinking she was off camera) burst into ear to ear laughter.” He added, “Was there ever a doubt Omar hated America?” Nope, none at all.

Over the weekend, President Trump suggested Omar and her comrades should consider leaving the United States if they hate the country, and he was roundly accused of racism as a result. Omar, who previously referred to those who perpetrated the horrific terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, as “some people” who “did something,” has a long track record of appearing to loathe the United States.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) backed the president on Monday morning, calling the so-called Squad a “bunch of communists” who are “anti-Semitic” and hate the United States. Which is what Trump called them as well and it is exactly what they are. Trump doesn’t silently support violent revolutionaries and terrorists and he has the stones to come out and say what he means and then stand by it. Not blow people off and laugh over supporting terrorists.
