“Border Czar” Kamala Harris Got Up and Walked Out of First Meeting with Mexican President on Border Security – Obrador Accuses Biden Admin of Orchestrating Coup

GatewayPundit - Sat, 05/08/2021 - 22:29

Things are not like they used to be.
It was well known that Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and Donald Trump had a tremendous working relationship. Obrador helped President Trump hold illegal aliens in his country before their trial in the US and Trump rewarded Obrador and Mexico with a strong border policy.

Those days are over.

Today, under the Biden-Kamala administration, the US Border is wide open and the Mexican President is not pleased with the way the Biden administration is assisting cartel leaders in Mexico with their insane policies.

On Friday Lopez Obrador accused the Biden administration of orchestrating a coup against his administration!

Then later Lopez Obrador complained after Kamala Harris walked out of their first meeting on US border! She got up and walked away because she had “other business.”

Kamala is the Biden “border czar”

ABC International reported:

Much has changed the attitude of the Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, towards the White House after the departure of Donald Trump. At his first major meeting with the US vice president, who has recently assumed the task of solving the migration crisis at the border, the Mexican president has come accusing his northern neighbor of interventionist and financier of coup plotters, to which he has added the rudeness of communicating to Kamala Harris that she was not going to stay for the entire meeting – held virtually by the pandemic – for other commitments. Even so, in the face to face, López Obrador has said: “Let’s seek understanding, don’t fight.”

US News reported:

Mexico has sent a diplomatic note asking the United States to suspend funding for an anti-corruption group critical of the government, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday.

Lopez Obrador said the formal protest was sent because of financial backing for Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity (MCCI), a group that investigates political corruption. The president says the group is seeking to undermine his government.

“It’s interference, it’s interventionism, it’s promoting coup plotters,” said Lopez Obrador, describing funding that includes money from the U.S. Agency for International Development, commonly known as USAID, as an affront to Mexico’s sovereignty.

“That’s why we’re asking that (the U.S. government) clarifies this for us. A foreign government can’t provide money to political groups.”

Lopez Obrador was later asked if he believed the U.S. government was seeking to remove him from office, and he responded that he did not believe that was the case.

Lopez Obrador, who has touted his good relations with both the previous Trump administration and the current Biden administration, was speaking shortly before a call with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris about immigration.

Department of Education Facing Much Needed Resistance as Stephen Miller Files Lawsuit to Protect US History and the Truth

GatewayPundit - Sat, 05/08/2021 - 22:15

Stephen Miller is known for fireworks with his passionate pro-American language. In his role as lead legal counsel for a new pro-American legal defense team, America First Legal, he does not disappoint. 

“America First Legal officially submitted comment on Biden Admin’s proposed rule to indoctrinate students with Critical Race Theory/1619 project. AFL will pursue all necessary action to protect our children,” Miller posted on Twitter on Saturday.

Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project are going to be top campaign issues for the 2021 and 2022 elections, with parents in communities all over the United States demanding investigation and oversight into the creepy set of teachings.

Miller’s lawsuit comes at a time when Americans feel like they have lost their champion, in President Donald J. Trump, as they watch helplessly while Democrats push for more and more invasive and reckless policies overall, but especially frightening to them are policies that impact their children.

According to Miller’s letter to Miguel Cardona U.S. Department of Education, Miller is red hot over the issue of what is being taught in schools, and he is headed to court and taking the Biden administration with him.

“The proposed priority for history education is inconsistent and irreconcilable with who we are as Americans, is irredeemably flawed, and should not serve as the basis for any programs that your Department administers. The damage this priority would inflict on our nation and our youngest citizens would be irreparable and unforgivable,” Miller wrote.

“It encourages history education that violates our founding principles and the sacred promise of full equality under [the] law. And it would teach a new generation of Americans to think in a way that is contrary to both federal civil rights law and the United States Constitution,” the letter read.

BREAKING: America First Legal officially submitted comment on Biden Admin’s proposed rule to indoctrinate students with Critical Race Theory/1619 project. AFL will pursue all necessary action to protect our children. https://t.co/2Qpr7tGxh7 Visit https://t.co/lbf1yscZWP for more.

— Stephen Miller (@StephenM) May 7, 2021

“Because the proposal is insidiously harmful for students who are learning history, deeply damaging to civic culture, corrosive of national unity, profoundly detrimental to the growth of knowledge and the open pursuit of academic inquiry, violative of our foundational principles, factually unsalvageable as matter of historical truth, and destructive to national unity, AFL urges the Department of Education to reject this priority as written. We strongly encourage the Department to instead adopt policies and priorities that encourage the teaching of the full picture of American history—one that will enrich and inspire young minds, not poison them,” Miller said in his defense of American schoolchildren and their parents everywhere.

Thank God for individuals like Miller who are standing up for American history and our children.

Biden Spends Another Weekend Away From the White House, Vacations at Camp David (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sat, 05/08/2021 - 21:57

Feeble Joe spent another weekend away from the White House.

Joe Biden was spotted boarding Marine One on Friday afternoon en route to Camp David.

Biden barely works during the week then takes off early on Fridays to spend weekends at either his Delaware basement or Camp David, the presidential retreat in the Maryland mountains.

Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson confronted White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday about Joe Biden’s “light schedule” after the April jobs report showed the biggest miss since 1998.

Psaki dodged the question and praised Joe Biden.

In an effort to look spry, Joe Biden did a little jog to Marine One.

The ‘We Build the Wall’ Team Was Working with Government to Strategically Build New Border Wall Segments When SDNY Indicted Individuals on Bogus Charges

GatewayPundit - Sat, 05/08/2021 - 21:10

The ‘We Build the Wall’ team built a half-mile section of the wall in a very important place to stop illegal border traffic. The group was working on other strategic sections to build the wall when the Southern District of New York (SDNY) decided to stop all individual border wall construction.

We reported back in 2019 on the success of the ‘We Build the Wall’ team:

“We Build the Wall” Completes First Wall Segment, Raises $700,000 This Week for Next Project — Now Focusing on Second Segment (Video)

The project was moving ahead and then the SDNY indicted four members of the team, including Steve Bannon and Brian Kolfage, on charges of taking donations and spending them on themselves.  Eventually, Bannon was pardoned by President Trump leaving the remaining individuals who were indicted to stand by themselves.  The DOJ apparently didn’t like the pardon President Trump gave to Bannon because they were soon looking for ways to keep him as part of the case:

Federal Prosecutors in New York Are Asking the Judge to Ignore President Trump’s Pardon of Steve Bannon in “We Build the Wall” Case

The Federal Government went after Kolfage last week:

EXCLUSIVE: Fed’s “We Build the Wall” Case Is Falling Apart So They Charge Brian Kolfage with Bogus Tax Charges – Kolfage Responds

Today we can report what the DOJ in the SDNY doesn’t want you to know.  The government was working with the ‘We Build the Wall’ team to build more segments of the border wall along the border.  In early January 2020 the team was working with the US government to look at a piece of land to survey for building a wall:

    

The We Build the Wall team then worked to get the wall built on a section of wall in New Mexico:

 

The team had continued their efforts to build the wall while working with the government into July 2020:

Then suddenly in August 2020 the We Build the Wall operation along the southern border was halted due to an indictment and capture of assets by the DOJ’s Southern District of New York.

China’s Planning Major Atlantic Military Base to Approach US With Warships and Submarines

Geller Report - Sat, 05/08/2021 - 12:00

Now that the deterrence of the Trump Administration is gone, China is on the move in a big way. China has no fear or respect for the Biden Administration. In particular, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has been a total disaster. Blinken has been completely overmatched and dominated by the CCP officials. As such, we can expect these kind of provocations from China to continue under the Biden Administration. The Republican Party must make the threat of China a major issue for the 2022 mid-term elections.

China planning major Atlantic military base to approach US with warships and submarines

By American Military News, May 7, 2021

The top general over U.S. troops in Africa warned that China plans to establish a new military base on Africa’s western coast capable of hosting submarines and aircraft carriers. The move would expand China’s access to the Atlantic Ocean and provide a base to rearm its naval forces in a potential conflict with the U.S.

In an interview with the Associated Press published Thursday, U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) commanding Gen. Stephen Townsend said China has already approached countries along nearly the entire west African coastline, as far north as Mauritania and as far south as Namibia, to pitch the major naval base idea.

“They’re looking for a place where they can rearm and repair warships. That becomes militarily useful in conflict,” Townsend told the Associated Press.

A Chinese military base on the west African coastline could put Chinese forces closer to east coast U.S. than any Chinese bases in the Pacific are to west coast U.S.

Townsend noted China has already taken efforts to establish a seaport on Africa’s eastern coastline, strengthening their access to the Indian ocean.

“They’re a long way toward establishing that in Djibouti,” Townsend said, referring to the nation that rests on the east African coastline, at the mouth of the Red Sea. “Now they’re casting their gaze to the Atlantic coast and wanting to get such a base there.”

China established its sea base in Djibouti years ago and has been steadily expanding it. Townsend said China’s east African base already hosts around 2,000 military personnel, including Chinese marines, tasked with defending the base.

“They have arms and munitions for sure,” Townsend said of the Djibouti base. “They have armored combat vehicles. We think they will soon be basing helicopters there to potentially include attack helicopters.”

Townsend said China is “outmanuevering” the U.S. in key countries throughout Africa.

“Port projects, economic endeavors, infrastructure and their agreements and contracts will lead to greater access in the future,” Townsend said. “They are hedging their bets and making big bets on Africa.”

China’s Xi Jinping Says Soon No Enemy Will Be Able to Defeat the Country, “Profound Change Not Seen For A Century.”

Geller Report - Fri, 05/07/2021 - 21:00

In his latest remarks, the Chinese leader said the world was experiencing “profound change not seen for a century.”

That’s war talk. You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.

China’s Xi Jinping Says Soon No Enemy Will Be Able to Defeat the Country

By John Feng, Newsweek, May 2021:

China can be undefeatable in a world mired in political turmoil, as long as it is self-reliant and balances its relationship with the outside world, Xi Jinping told Communist Party cadres in January.

His 10,000-word speech, given just five days after the Capitol Riots in the U.S., were published by the party’s bimonthly theoretical journal Qiushi last Friday.

In his remarks titled “Seizing a New Development Stage, Implementing a New Development Philosophy and Constructing a New Development paradigm,” the Chinese leader said the world was experiencing “profound change not seen for a century.”
China, Xi alluded, has the right leadership and government to capitalize on the “enormous and unprecedented” opportunities and challenges facing the country’s development. There would be more opportunities than challenges, he predicted.

“The world today can be characterized by one feature—’turmoil’—and this trend is likely to continue,” Xi told officials at the Central Party School on January 11.

Democrat White House Condemns Florida Election Security Law Signed by Ron DeSantis

Democrats are terrified of free and fair elections. In order to win, they have to cheat and steal.

White House Condemns Florida Election Security Law Signed by Ron DeSantis

The White House condemned a new election security law signed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) on Thursday.

By: Charlie Spiering, Breitbart, 6 May 2021:

“Florida is moving in the wrong direction,” Deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said to reporters aboard Air Force One.

DeSantis signed the bill Thursday morning which puts limits on ballot box drop boxes, voting by mail, and ballot harvesting, while also enhancing voter ID requirements.

“Me signing this bill here says, ‘Florida, your vote counts. Your vote is going to cast with integrity and transparency, and this is a great place for democracy,’” DeSantis said at a signing ceremony for the bill.

Jean-Pierre argued the 2020 presidential election was “one of the most secure elections in American history,” despite Republican concerns about significant changes to the voting rules due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“There’s no legitimate reason to change the rules right now to make it harder to vote,” she said. “That’s built on a lie.”

Jean-Pierre also criticized Republicans across the country for passing new laws to secure the election, accusing them of trying to prevent Democrats from voting.

“The only reason to change the rules right now is if you don’t like who voted and that should be out of bounds,” she said.

Soros Prosecutor Faces Disciplinary Hearings, Could Lose Law License In Massive Wrongdoing

Investigation finds massive wrongdoing by prosecutor in case against ex-Missouri governor

St. Louis prosecutor Kimberly Gardner engaged in 62 acts of misconduct that resulted in 79 false representations during prosecution of Eric Greitens, memo alleges

By John Solomon, May 5, 2021:

Missouri’s chief legal disciplinary officer accused St. Louis’ top prosecutor of sweeping misconduct in the failed prosecution of former Gov. Eric Greitens, saying she lied to judges in court filings and testimony, withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense, misled her own prosecution team and violated the constitutional right to a fair trial.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, one of the early local prosecutors bankrolled by liberal megadonor George Soros since 2016, engaged in 62 acts of misconduct that resulted in 79 false representations during Greitens’ now-dismissed criminal prosecution, according to Chief Disciplinary Counsel Alan Pratzel’s memo obtained Wednesday by Just the News.

“Probable cause exists to believe that the respondent is guilty of professional misconduct,” Pratzel declared in a 73-page memo that repeatedly accused Gardner of withholding evidence of innocence and providing a false portrait to the courts, the defense and even her own prosecution team.

Pratzel also accused Gardner of lying during the disciplinary proceedings, long after the case was dismissed against Greitens, a former Navy SEAL and rising Republican star who was forced to resign as governor in 2018 less than two years after he was sworn in.

The disciplinary action against Gardner follows the 2019 indictment of her former chief investigator in the case, ex-FBI agent William Tisaby, on seven felonies alleging he committed perjury and evidence tampering during the Greitens probe.

Gardner also remains under criminal investigation by a special prosecutor as Tisaby awaits a trial that has been delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The unraveling of the criminal case was highlighted in a Just the News investigative report last year, prompting some to compare Gardner’s actions to the FBI’s now-confirmed misconduct during the pursuit of then-President Donald Trump during the Russia collusion probe.

Pratzel concluded that Gardner had violated her responsibilities as a lawyer and a prosecutor, essentially suborning Tisaby’s perjury by “failing to take reasonable remedial measures when she knew Tisaby was giving false answers to questions.”

“She offered and elicited false testimony when questioning Tisaby” during a deposition ordered by the court and also provided inaccurate information to a fellow prosecutor during a private session in the judge’s chambers that later led that prosecutor to make false statements to court, the memo alleged.

Gardner, St. Louis’ first black chief prosecutor, filed an initial response to the allegations, suggesting race and politics were involved in the disciplinary action but acknowledging she made mistakes in the Greitens prosecution.

“In hindsight, were each and every one of Ms. Gardner’s actions in the intense, fast-paced Greitens investigation and prosecution perfect? No, but that is not the measure or purpose of the attorney discipline,” her legal team wrote.
File
/sites/default/files/2021-05/GardnerResponseReadable.pdf

She claimed that she has been the “target” of attacks for her “tireless and courageous efforts to reform the criminal justice system” and was being treated differently compared to other lawyers.

“Attacks on Ms. Gardner have taken many forms, ranging from overtly racists emails sent to her office to investigations and lawsuits against her,” her reply alleged. She also showed her continued disdain for Greitens, calling him a Republican “golden boy.”

Wednesday’s development also could have repercussions in the political world, where Greitens is attempting to come back by running for the vacant US Senate seat in Missouri in 2022. He claimed vindication in the findings by the disciplinary counsel.

”I’m glad that the truth is coming out,” he told Just the News. “It proves what I said all along was correct: because I fought for the people of Missouri, I was attacked by a Soros-funded prosecutor. She repeatedly lied, violated my constitutional rights, and made up a false case because I defended our police officers.”

“Hopefully what she did to me won’t ever happen to anyone else,” he added.

Gardner has been the object of frequent controversy and criticism, including as the focus of an ongoing special prosecutor’s criminal investigation in the Greitens case, and was recently removed by a court in the prosecution of a St. Louis couple accused of brandishing weapons during last year’s Black Lives Matter protests.

She has frequently used race as a defense, even filing a lawsuit under the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 last year alleging the St. Louis police union had mobilized to thwart her efforts to reform criminal justice and denouncing the “white, ethically conflicted special prosecutor” investigating her and Tisaby. That lawsuit was thrown out last September.

Pratzel’s memo, however, provides the most direct and serious threat to her hold on the St. Louis prosecutor’s office. Disciplinary action, if upheld by a hearing panel and the Missouri Supreme Court, could range from public admonishment to loss of her law license, the latter of which could end her tenure as circuit attorney.

The disciplinary memo cited a litany of violations of rules designed to ensure ethical behavior by lawyers and prosecutors, and fair trials for defendants. It alleged she made false statements in court filings, engaged in “conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice” and harmed Greitens’ right to a fair trial by keeping required evidence of innocence from the defense.

Gardner violated “the rules of criminal procedure and court orders by concealing discoverable and exculpatory evidence,” the memo stated.

DeSantis Makes Florida Elections Safe and Fair

LifeZette - Fri, 05/07/2021 - 01:30

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis not only signed into law Thursday one of the best election reform laws in the nation, but he did it live on Fox News while excluding the leftist press from the event. Now that’s a beautiful twofer.

So much winning in the Sunshine State! https://t.co/nmYL3DywJA

— Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) May 6, 2021

FNC: “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a voting bill in the state into law on Thursday morning, making his state the latest GOP-leaning state to enact voting changes after the 2020 presidential election. DeSantis, a Republican, said live on ‘Fox & Friends’ that the new law would continue to keep things like mail voting accessible while also protecting election integrity.”

“I have what we think is the strongest election integrity measures in the country,” DeSantis said. “We’re making sure we’re enforcing voter ID… We’re also banning ballot harvesting. We’re not gonna let political operatives go and get satchels of votes to dump them in some drop box. We’re also prohibiting mass mailing of balloting. We’ve had absentee voting in Florida for a long time. You request the ballot. You get it. And you mail it in. But to just indiscriminately send them out is not a recipe for success.”

The bill was immediately challenged in court by the usual suspects. “BREAKING: Minutes after Governor DeSantis signs new voter suppression law, @LWVFlorida, @BlackVotesMtr, @ActiveRetirees file federal court lawsuit,” attorney Mark Elias tweeted. “Proud to be part of the legal team supporting these great organizations protecting the right to vote!”

But the good guys are involved as well. “Governor DeSantis has led the fight for election integrity reforms in Florida every step of the way. We applaud the governor for signing SB 90 this morning, a strong bill that will ensure it remains easy to vote and hard to cheat in the Sunshine State,” said Jessica Anderson, the executive director of Heritage Action.

“Every Floridian can request a mail-in ballot, vote early, or cast a ballot on Election Day. Anyone who reads this new law will see that it keeps voting easy, and makes cheating harder,” said Jason Snead, the executive director of the Honest Elections Project. “Maintaining a robust election system is a constant process of learning and improvement… Voters deserve the best election system we can deliver, and as Florida has shown, that work is never complete.”

Police Officer Fired For Using First Amendment Rights

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 23:18

Federal government employees can do work for the Democratic Socialists of America on the taxpayer dime. The ideology they advocate is the most blood-soaked collection of ignorance and hate in human history. But hey, it fits the leftist narrative. But one police officer, using her first amendment rights, properly calls BLM “terrorists” and she loses her job. That is wrong and blatantly unconstitutional.

Hopewell Township, NJ @TwpofHopewellNJ wrongly fired police officer Sara Erwin for exercising her 1st Amendment right and speaking the truth when she called Black Lives Matter protesters "terrorists."

— Wes (@Welswe1) May 6, 2021

FNC: “A New Jersey police officer told ‘Fox & Friends First’ on Wednesday that she was “devastated” after she was fired over a Facebook post where she called Black Lives Matter protesters ‘terrorists.’

“Former Hopewell Township police officer Sara Erwin explained what prompted her to write the post that she said led to her losing her job. A second officer, Sgt. Mandy Gray, who appeared with Erwin on the show, was suspended and demoted for liking the June 2020 post. Both Erwin and Gray each have 20 years of experience, according to their attorney Frank Crivelli, who argued their treatment was unjust and excessively harsh. Gray was the first female officer hired in Hopewell Township and became the first female sergeant when she was promoted in 2019, NJ.com reported, noting that she will lose the rank in the demotion.

“Erwin noted on Wednesday that she wrote the Facebook post during a lot of ‘turmoil’ that was taking place following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin. His death sparked protests and riots in cities across the country.”

Erwin reportedly wrote: “Last night as I left for work I had my two kids crying for me not to go to work. I don’t think I’ve ever felt the way I did last night. And then I watched people I know and others I care about going into harms way. I love my police family like my own. So when you share posts and things on Facebook I’d really appreciate if you’d THINK before doing so. I’ve seen so many black lives matter [sic] hashtags in these posts. Just to let you know — they are terrorists. They hate me. They hate my uniform. They don’t care if I die.” She’s exactly right. We hope she gets her job back.

Elizabeth Warren Claims Trump ‘Is Truly A Danger To Our Democracy’ As She Celebrates Facebook Ban

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 22:10

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke out on Thursday to celebrate Facebook upholding its ban on Donald Trump, going so far as to say that the former president is “truly a danger to democracy” because he spreads “lies.”

“I am much happier with Donald Trump off the air, off Facebook,” Warren said. “I don’t like having to get up every morning and go through what he’s done. I think he poses a lot of risk. I see this and think about the amount of power that Facebook has.”

“Do you think former President Trump should be treated like an ordinary American?” asked congressional correspondent Jacqueline Alemany.

“I think He poses much more risk than an ordinary American,” Warren replied. “I think the risk he poses is he spreads lies. Indeed, he is now forcing, evidently, everybody else in the Republican Party or the leadership of the Republican Party to agree to say the lie out loud. He spreads misinformation. He is truly a danger to our democracy.”

“So would you call for a forever ban on him then?” Alemany pressed on, to which Warren responded, “Yes.”

This comes after we reported that House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) celebrated the Facebook ban by saying that Trump is “pathologically” continuing to “endanger our democracy.”

“The First Amendment protects Donald Trump and every American from the government regulating speech,” he said. “It doesn’t say that private companies need to use their platforms to air patent falsehoods that endanger the country that incite insurrection. So no, I think Facebook is trying to have a consistent policy. At least its oversight board is trying to make sure that it is consistent in how it treats people.”

“The President here is continuing to go out and push the big lie about the election, continuing, I think, to endanger our democracy by doing that,” Schiff added. “So he continues to make the case that he would violate the policies if they readmitted him.”

“And I think frankly, pathologically, he is incapable of changing. So this is a temporary ban. It will likely be, if we are fortunate, a permanent ban because the president will not stop the lies about the last election or lies about the next one,” he concluded. “He will incite people if that’s what’s necessary to suit his narrow personal interests. And that should violate any good corporate citizen’s policies.”

Pelosi Mocks Male Republicans For Not Being Able To Handle Party ‘Girlfriend’ Liz Cheney

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 22:05

As calls grow for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) to be ousted from her leadership roles, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is mocking male Republicans for trying to find a “non-threatening woman” to replace her.

Staffers for Pelosi sent out a spoof “help wanted” ad as calls mounted to remove Cheney for her moves against former President Donald Trump, according to Yahoo News.

“Word is out that House GOP Leaders are looking to push Rep. Liz Cheney from her post as House Republican Party Chair – their most senior woman in GOP leadership – for a litany of very Republican reasons: she won’t lie, she isn’t humble enough, she’s like a girlfriend rooting for the wrong team, and more,” the ad stated.

“So what exactly are House GOP Leaders looking for in a #3? Punchbowl AM got the scoop and, well, it’s not surprising … they want a woman who isn’t a ‘threat’ to them,” it continued.

This was a reference to Punchbowl News, which reported on Tuesday that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-CA) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) want Cheney ousted and replaced with someone who is “not relentlessly on message, but also someone who does not pose a threat to them and their power.’

While appearing on “Fox & Friends” this week, McCarthy said that some members of the caucus were “concerned” about Cheney’s capacity to do her job as a conference chairwoman.

“There’s no concern about how she voted on impeachment. That decision has been made. I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair – to carry that message,” he said.

— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) May 4, 2021

Cheney has long been an outspoken critic of Trump, recently saying that “it’s important” that he not run again in 2024.

“I don’t think that that’s going to happen,” Cheney told the Washington Examiner. “And I think it’s important that it not happen, given what he did.”

While she also said that she “certainly would never vote for a Democrat” and she also stated that she does not think Trump “should be president again.”

Liz Cheney Reportedly Is ‘Checked Out And Already Accepting Her Fate’ As Calls Grow To Oust Her

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 21:51

New reports are coming in stating that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is “checked out” and “already accepting her fate” as calls grow for her to be ousted as the Republican Conference Chair.

“House Republican sources tell us Cheney is ‘checked out’ and already accepting her fate. Unlike the last attempt to oust her in February, which she handily defeated, she’s not making calls or whipping,” reported Politico Playbook. “A source close to Cheney said she intends to lean on the argument that leaders should be able to say what they think is right without repercussions.”

This comes after Cheney attempted to defend herself in an op-ed published by The Washington Post in which she accused House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) of having a “changed… story” on Republican caucus politics. She then claimed that she is the true “conservative Republican.”

“I am a conservative Republican, and the most conservative of conservative values is reverence for the rule of law. Each of us swears an oath before God to uphold our Constitution,” Cheney argued.

Calls have grown for Cheney to be ousted from her leadership role ever since she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump earlier this year. She recently doubled down on this by saying “it’s important” that Trump not run again in 2024.

“I don’t think that that’s going to happen,” Cheney told the Washington Examiner. “And I think it’s important that it not happen, given what he did.”

While she also said that she “certainly would never vote for a Democrat” and she also stated that she does not think Trump “should be president again.”

Never one to take this kind of thing laying down, Trump fired back in a statement of his own.

“Liz Cheney is polling sooo low in Wyoming, and has sooo little support, even from the Wyoming Republican Party, that she is looking for a way out of her Congressional race. Based on all polling, there is no way she can win,” Trump said.

“She’ll either be yet another lobbyist or maybe embarrass her family by running for President, in order to save face,” he added. “This warmongering fool wants to stay in the Middle East and Afghanistan for another 19 years, but doesn’t consider the big picture—Russia and China!”

Coca-Cola Pauses Diversity Hiring As They Might Have Violated Federal Law

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 21:49

No matter where a person goes in the world, there is universal love and understanding for the iconic brand of Coca-Cola. Being known for setting the gold standard when it comes to delicious carbonated beverages, Coke has been able to be a part of almost every memorable moment in recent history. From Olympics to SuperBowls, Coke is always present, which made them the perfect target for the liberal agenda and their cancel culture. 

For those unaware, back in January, the general counsel for Coke, Bradley Gayton, took a bold stance when it came to diversity. Under his plan, outside law firms wishing to work with the company had to meet certain standards that some said violated the Civil Rights Act. Under Gayton, law firms were required to use “diverse attorneys” when working for the company, and half of them had to be black. And if a company did not abide by the new rules, it could be penalized financially. 

Then, without warning, Gayton was quietly released from his position as the company went with Monica Howard Douglas as new general counsel. While details about Gayton’s termination are still not being discussed, Douglas did announce that Coca-Cola would be pausing the diversity initiative for now. 

Not giving any more information, a spokesperson, Scott Leith did go on Fox Business to give a little insight into the decision for pausing the program. He said, “When there is a leadership change, it takes time for the new leader to review the current status of the team, organization, and initiatives. Monica is fully committed to the notions of equity and diversity in the legal profession, and we fully expect she will take the time necessary to thoughtfully review any plans going forward.”

It should also be noted that under Gayton’s guidance, some employees were expected to complete a “be less white” training course. Coca-Cola defended their move to teach their employees to be less white by claiming the curriculum could be found on popular recruiting site LinkedIn. The company has yet to clarify if their employees were forced to take the training or was it voluntary.

Joe Scarborough Claims Republicans Are Making Liz Cheney An Alternative For ‘Conservatives’ Like Me

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 21:43

On Thursday morning’s episode of the MSNBC talk show “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough gave his thoughts on the growing calls to oust Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) ouster from her role as the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference.

Calls have been growing to remove Cheney from her leadership position ever since she voted in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump earlier this year.

“It’s very funny,” Scarborough said. “I keep seeing these liberals writing op-eds going, ‘We don’t like you, Liz Cheney. What you’re doing is a good thing, but we don’t like you.’ The Cheneys don’t give a damn whether liberals like them or not. You don’t call Dick Cheney, her father, a war criminal for like two decades and then like worry about whether Liz Cheney is liking you or not. She doesn’t. Like, Liz is doing this because this is what Liz believes.”

Scarborough went on to lament that Republicans keep “turning” toward Trump before suggesting that the GOP is “playing right into Liz Cheney’s hands” by making her an alternative that conservative voters like himself could vote for.

“They just keep turning that golf cart in towards Donald Trump,” Scarborough claimed. “Nobody has ever jerked it the other way.”

“And I just wonder if they’re not playing right into Liz Cheney’s hands, ultimately, by making her actually the alternative that people like me and suburban voters in Atlanta and suburban voters in Maricopa County don’t look at Liz Cheney and say, ‘Oh, OK, there’s somebody that believes in small government, there’s somebody that believes in traditional foreign policy. Yeah, sounds OK to me,'” he added.

This comes a day after we reported that Scarborough’s cohost and wife Mika Brzezinski accused Trump of taking the GOP “hostage” as she reacted to a Wall Street Journal op-ed entitled, “Purging Liz Cheney.”

“Joe, it just goes back to our lead story, and how serious it is — what this judge has said about the Trump presidency, about the Mueller report that the president with the help of the attorney general used the Mueller report to drum up hate, to foment anger, and it all led up to January 6, and by the way, took the Republican Party hostage, and they are choosing to stay there,” she said.

Scarborough then chimed in to attack Republicans, saying, “they’re continuing to lie about the 2020 election when everybody knows they’re lying about the 2020 election.”

After touting what he described as Cheney’s conservative voting record, Scarborough added, “This is madness.”

Disney’s Snow White Under Fire For Prince Charming Not Asking For Consent?

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 21:41

From the time of childhood to even becoming an adult, Disney remains a pillar in many people’s lives. It’s hard to think of a fond memory without remembering one of the Disney classics like Sleeping Beauty or the epic tale of Tarzan. But while most of us look back on the Disney classics with love and admiration, there are some that question the decisions behind the characters and if they did anything morally wrong. These people make up what we call “cancel culture” and they’ve recently set their eyes on the iconic Snow White. 

Recently, Disneyland in California opened their newly renovated Snow White ride called “Snow White’s Enchanted Wish”. Unlike other parks, Disney continues to revamp their classic rides to stay current with technology. Snow White was just the latest update in their ongoing efforts to stay relevant, but some are calling the mouse out for what they are referring to as consent issues. 

Among the backlash are two San Francisco Chronicle reviewers Katie Dowd and Julie Termaine. According to the pair, the ride should have used the update to remove the iconic kiss scene where Prince Charming saves Snow White by giving her true-loves kiss. That’s right, the main scene of the entire film has upset the reviewers and woke culture because Snow White didn’t give consent. 

Dowd and Termaine used their writing abilities to attack Disney for supporting such an act of debauchery. They said, “Haven’t we already agreed that consent in early Disney movies is a major issue? That teaching kids that kissing, when it hasn’t been established if both parties are willing to engage, is not OK? It’s hard to understand why the Disneyland of 2021 would choose to add a scene with such old-fashioned ideas of what a man is allowed to do to a woman. Why not reimagine the ending in keeping with the spirit of the movie and Snow White’s place in the Disney canon, but that avoids this problem?”

While the pair was quick to attack the ride and the story behind it, neither writers were able to give a single example as to what Prince Charming could have done to save Snow White. Luckily, the ride is still being operated and visitors can enjoy the ride’s new technology, soundtrack, and visual elements.

The Media, Big Tech Take Joe Biden For A Stroll Down Easy Street

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 20:59

What a difference an administration makes. It seems like just yesterday that the media was spending all its time moaning and groaning about the latest Donald Trump tweet. And because of said tweets, they all needed safe spaces and a puppy because, well, he’s just so mean and orange and Republican!

Fast forward to the Joe Biden administration, or rather the Biden/Harris administration.

The media is now living by the words of another president. It was Gerald Ford who, after being sworn in as the 38th president of the United States following Watergate declared, “My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.”

That’s certainly how alleged journalists are feeling. Consider this headline from Mediaite: “White House Reporters ‘Rooting’ for Jen Psaki Gush About Her in Magazine Feature: ‘Professional, Pleasant, Lovely’”

The nightmare for journalists is over. For others? Well.

And it’s not just Big Media that is holding Biden’s hand as the stroll down Easy Street.

In a recent report from Axios, it was pointed out that by continuing to ban former President Donald Trump from Facebook and other social media, President Joe Biden has received the gift that keeps on giving.

Axios argues, correctly in my view, that Big Tech silencing the one person that would undoubtedly be his harshest critic, Biden can get things like the COVID relief bill, American Families, American Jobs and Infrastructure plans out in front of the American people without Donald Trump coming along and messing the whole thing up for him.

Facebook's continued suspension of Donald Trump's account extends the silencing of Joe Biden's most potent critic. https://t.co/A2qo75eKtO

Biden Gets Three Lucky Breaks

Biden’s lucky breaks came long before the media began openly rooting for him, and before Trump was silenced by a handful of Silicon Valley executives.

Axios also points out that the COVID-19 pandemic put the kibosh on a whole bunch of things that might be considered traditional campaigning during the 2020 campaign season.

That means no kissing babies, no hair sniffing, the list goes on and on. For a guy that is well, prone to gaffes shall we say, coronavirus might just have been an in-kind donation from the campaign gods.

The Biden team made no bones about it, either.

In a book released in early March written by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC News’ Jonathan Allen entitled, “Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency”, a quote near the end of a chapter called “Its All Turning”, senior Biden advisor Anita Dunn states, “COVID is the best thing that ever happened to him.”

Biden’s Daily In-Kind Contribution From The Media

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki appears to be the media’s new crush.

The aforementioned Mediaite article reports that the white House press corps feel as though they are in the “awkward position of rooting” for Psaki when it is their job to challenge her and ask tough questions.

New York Times White House Correspondent Peter Baker commented that, “She’s a pro, you know?”

No Peter, how is she a pro? Is she a pro because she doesn’t work for Donald Trump? Do tell.

Another white House reporter anonymously stated that, “She’s like any other competent, professional, pleasant, lovely press person from any other era.” Translation, an era other than the Trump era.

Additional translation: she’s one of us, and agrees with us on everything.

The same reporter added that Psaki has a “sunny demeanor” that made reporters “feel good about their interactions.”

It goes entirely without saying that these kinds of people are not going to hold the most powerful person on the planet accountable. Or even ask tough questions.

“The bar set by the Trump White House might be on the floor but, hey, so far she’s cleared it.”

Reporters say Jen Psaki has given them a White House press secretary they can champion. https://t.co/O4yye3aF0S

The Spector Of Trump

While it is usually customary for former presidents to not comment on the actions of their predecessors, Barack Obama broke that rule on more than one occasion, and the media was OK with it.

But we all know that there is a whole other set of rules for Donald Trump.

With Trump persona non grata for social media giants, there are no Trump opinions for the Biden White House to have to deal with.

With a pliant media gushing over Biden’s press secretary, there are no hard questions for the Biden White House to have to deal with.

Welcome to Easy Street, Joe.

BODYCAMS: Officers Fatally Shoot Suspect Who Shot At & Rammed Them With His Vehicle

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 20:52

Bakersfield, CA – The Kern County Sheriff’s Department released these bodycam videos in their Critical Incident Briefing of the officer involved shooting of Graciano Ceballos.

On April 28 shortly before 1 am, deputies responded to a call of shots fired near May Street in Oildale. One of the responding deputies was shot at, but fortunately was not hit. A police pursuit began following the gun shot. Ultimately the vehicle crashed into patrol cars in Bakersfield.

The video shows Ceballos being shot as he is running from the vehicle. Deputies fired their weapons after Ceballos refused to show his hands and was making his way to occupied vehicles and apartments. Reportedly Ceballos refused to surrender for an hour, which hindered the ability to provide medical attention in a timely manner. Once Ceballos was taken into custody he was pronounced dead.

White Farmers Sue Biden Over Racial Discrimination In Loan Forgiveness Program

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 19:08

A class action lawsuit was filed last Thursday against the Biden administration by a group of white farmers who say that a farm loan forgiveness program contained in the COVID relief bill makes them ineligible for the program because of their race.

The lawsuit contends that their ineligibility due to their race violates their constitutional rights, specifically equal protection under the law.

The suit was filed on behalf of the farmers by the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty in a federal court in Green Bay.

The lawsuit from the farmers in Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Ohio states,

“Were plaintiffs eligible for the loan forgiveness benefit, they would have the opportunity to make additional investments in their property, expand their farms, purchase equipment and supplies and otherwise support their families and local communities. Because plaintiffs are ineligible to even apply for the program solely due to their race, they have been denied the equal protection of the law and therefore suffered harm.”

The suit also seeks a court order prohibiting the USDA from allowing race to be a consideration for loans.

Assistance For Minority Farmers Only In The COVID Relief Bill

The $1.9 trillion Coronavirus relief bill signed by Joe Biden on March 11, provides $4 billion in debt relief for “black, indigenous, Hispanic, and other farmers of color,” as Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack put it.

The USDA – meaning taxpayers – would be on the hook for 120% of the amount due on any loans made directly to minority farmers, the additional 20% covering related debt relief taxes.

Proponents of the provisions in the COVID bill say it will make up for decades of discrimination by the USDA against black farmers.

Suit Also Filed In Texas

It is not only midwestern farmers who are calling foul on the racially-charged portion of the Biden COVID relief bill.

In Texas, Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller also filed suit against the government last week, saying the provisions not only discriminate against white farmers, but ranchers as well.

Miller, a rancher himself, filed his suit as a private citizen, and not on behalf of the state.

The Texas Tribune describes Miller’s complaint as the program failing to include “white ethnic groups that have unquestionably suffered” because of their ethnicity. Those groups being Irish, Italian, German, Jewish and eastern Europeans.

The Texas suit is being sponsored by America First Legal, a group founded by former Trump senior advisor Stephen Miller, along with other former Trump officials. In a statement on the case, Stephen Miller said, “America First Legal opposes discrimination in all forms.”

The lawsuit also says that targeting minority farmers as beneficiaries of the program and excluding white farmers and ranchers is unconstitutional.

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller sued the Biden administration for their exclusion of white farmers in their #COVID19 relief package.

Democrats Will Push Forward With Relief Bill Provisions

Even though Joe Biden signed the bill into law, the racial provisions for farm loans didn’t go without criticism at the time.

Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) stated, “This should be a clear violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and I call on the Department of Justice to investigate it if it becomes law. … Federal aid dollars should be color-blind.”

Rep. Glenn Grothman of Wisconsin sounded a similar note, saying, “We are going to have loan forgiveness on farms based on ethnicity.”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has stated that they are reviewing the lawsuit with the Department of justice but plan to continue to offer the loan forgiveness to farmers they deem “socially disadvantaged.”

“There should absolutely be no federal dollars going anywhere just based on race," Wisconsin dairy farmer Adam Faust, a double amputee, says.

Media Furious As Florida Gov. DeSantis Blocks Everyone But Fox News From Bill Signing Event

LifeZette - Thu, 05/06/2021 - 16:37

Journalists for mainstream media outlets were in an uproar when Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a new voting law and blocked the media – except for Fox News – from covering the event.

The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 23-17 and the House 77-40 last week.

The new Florida voting law places restrictions on the use of dropboxes including; limits on placement location and who can drop off ballots, requiring election officials to monitor their opening, and a ban on moving the boxes within 30 days of elections.

The law requires ‘vote by mail’ requests to be made with each election instead of allowing for automatic renewal while adding additional identification requirements for voters requesting absentee ballots.

“Me signing this bill says, ‘Florida, your vote counts,'” DeSantis said in an interview with Fox & Friends.

“Your vote is going to be cast with integrity and transparency, and this is a great place for democracy,” he added.

Fox News Gets To Cover Florida Voting Law Signing

DeSantis raised the ire of the local media and other mainstream outlets by giving Fox News exclusive access to the law signing event.

“The governor gave Fox News, his preferred cable news outlet, an exclusive to broadcast the bill signing ceremony from West Palm Beach on Thursday morning,” the New York Times reported.

As you can imagine, other media outlets were not pleased.

The Times called the move to give Fox exclusive access “unusual, if not unprecedented.”

CBS 12 reporter Jay O’Brien tweeted his dismay that their outlet was “not allowed into the event” because they are “assigned to feed this event to affiliates nationwide.”

“Not a single reporter is being let in. This, in a ‘sunshine’ state that prides itself on open government,” he scoffed.

This isn’t a story about the press being locked out of an event. It’s about Floridians who had their eyes and ears in that room cut off. @GovRonDeSantis signed a law today that will impact ALL Floridians. And only some viewers were allowed to see it.

That’s not normal.

Some mainstream reporters suggested Fox News should boycott the event in solidarity with their journo colleagues.

“If I worked at Fox, I would refuse to cover the bill signing unless all my colleagues at other outlets could,” CBS News’ Kathryn Watson tweeted. “It’s the right thing to do.”

Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell applauded DeSantis’ move to limit who could witness the signing of the Florida voting law.

“He has every right to keep hecklers from left-wing news outlets from disrupting his events,” Bozell tweeted. “They’re already lying about the new law.”
