You see, Leftists tell you what they do by what they claim they would never do. In this example from The Gateway Pundit, we are reminded of what […]

David Brooks: Republicans Walking Into A "Death Match" To Justify Their Support For Trump

RealClear - Sat, 06/15/2019 - 20:37
PBS NEWSHOUR: Syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks join Judy Woodruff to discuss the week's political news, including President Trump's comments about willingness to accept foreign opposition research, the status of election security legislation, candidate lineups for the upcoming Democratic presidential debates and the politics of Democratic socialism. JUDY WOODRUFF: Back in the U.S., the stages are set for the first Democratic primary debates, and President Trump weighs in on accepting information from foreign governments about political opponents, which brings us to the analysis of Shields and Brooks. That is syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks. Hello to both of you. So let's start with the story that has pretty much dominated the week, David, and that is President Trump saying in that interview with ABC that if he were offered information from a foreign government about a political opponent, he wouldn't have any trouble taking it, and he - why would he report it to the FBI? Now, he's walked it back a little. But how serious is this? DAVID BROOKS: Well, it's a great moment in moral philosophy when you're asked if you're going to cheat, and you say, of course, everyone cheats. (LAUGHTER) I salute him for not pretending to be better than he really is. He's pretty candid about it. But I do think that's a bit of his mind-set, that the rules - everybody breaks the rules. And maybe he conducted his business life that way, and he certainly wants to do that. It's just his natural reaction is, of course. Everybody breaks the rules. What's disturbing to me is not so much him. We sort of know him already - is how many Republicans are now walking themselves up to the position, well, we're in a death match, and so we need a leader like that. And I think, in order to justify their support for President Trump, they have talked themselves - or many people have - into the position that this is a life-or-death struggle, the left is out to destroy us, and so breaking the rules is what you got to do. And so that, to me, is almost a scarier prospect than the heart and soul of Donald Trump. WOODRUFF: So, some of them, some Republicans have said that he made a mistake. BROOKS: Yes. WOODRUFF: But you're right. BROOKS: Mitt Romney and others. But some of the others, the people who are supporting him, it's the ends justify the means argument.

Video: “I am in downtown Brooklyn, but I swear it’s Saudi Arabia”

Video: Brooklyn New York Mosque Broadcasts Islamic Call to Prayer to 20 Block Radius

“I am in downtown Brooklyn, but I swear it’s Saudi Arabia”.

By: Paul Joseph Watson, June 14, 2019:

A resident of Brooklyn posted a Facebook live video documenting how the Islamic call to prayer was being broadcast to a 20 block radius by a local mosque.

“I am in downtown Brooklyn, but I swear it’s Saudi Arabia, y’all hear that?” asks Derrick Gibson as the words “No God but Allah, Mohammad is his messenger” are broadcast.
“What the hell disturbing the peace! You gotta love it right here in America – this not Saudi Arabia” states Gibson as the noise gets louder.
The mosque in question is the Masjid-Al-Aman. A previous report from 2016 documents how locals complained 156 times about the call to prayer, labeling it a nuisance.
The commentary on the clip claims that the broadcast is a violation of New York City noise control ordinance.
However, according to a resident, when she contacted police about the noise, she was told, ”You can report excessive noise coming from a house of worship when a service is not being held as the police WILL NOT respond if you are reporting noise during a religious service.”
Police told her that it was perfectly legal to broadcast the sound using speakers during a religious service.

Florida Governor Signs Controversial Sanctuary Cities Ban

Newsy - Sat, 06/15/2019 - 20:03

Watch Video

Florida's governor signed a controversial sanctuary city ban into law on Friday.

Now all the state's law enforcement agencies will have to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. It's one of the strictest sanctuary city bans in the nation.

The ban focuses mostly on immigration detainers. Those are requests for law enforcement to hold a potentially deportable individual for up to 48 business hours beyond when they would have been released.

While Florida doesn't have any official sanctuary cities or counties, there have been cases of officials refusing to honor a detainer without a judicial order or criminal warrant.

Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a statement, "This law ensures we do not treat non-citizens better than Americans and it will help ensure Floridians are not being victimized by illegal aliens."

The ACLU of Florida issued a travel alert for the state in response to the bill, saying it "put[s] immigrants at risk of violence, potentially forcing victims and witnesses to stay silent for fear of deportation."

Iran's President Says It Will Continue Withdrawing From Nuclear Pact

Newsy - Sat, 06/15/2019 - 19:55

Watch Video

Iran's president says his country will continue to scale back compliance with a 2015 nuclear agreement unless it sees "positive signals" from other signatories.

The country stopped enforcing parts of the 2015 nuclear deal in May, around a year after the U.S. withdrew from the pact. That original deal was signed by the U.S., Iran, and a number of other countries in Europe and Asia.

Iran says it wants to see QUOTE "all the sides" of the agreement working to restore the pact. But it did not give details about what sort of "positive signals" the country was looking for.

The comments come at a tense time between the U.S. and Iran. On Thursday, the U.S. accused Iran of attacking two oil tankers. Iran has denied responsibility.

Other members of the pact have been hoping to save it, but they're facing push back from domestic companies which canceled deals with Iran under U.S. financial pressure.

Charlamagne Tha God: Elizabeth Warren "Dishonest" About Native American Claim, Used It To "Get Ahead"

RealClear - Sat, 06/15/2019 - 19:48
CNN's Erin Burnett speaks with "The Breakfast Club" radio show host Charlamagne Tha God about his interview with Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren in which he compared Warren to Rachel Dolezal, a woman who was born white but pretended to be black. Charlamagne Tha God said the problem is not that she took a "shortcut," it's that she wouldn't acknowledge it. "It's the dishonesty," he said. "You can be dishonest at one point in your life, but you admit that hey, I was being dishonest here, and I learned from the lesson, I can rock with you." ERIN BURNETT, CNN: Tonight, the fight for 2020, the candidates making the cut for the first Democratic debate just announced. And there are 20 facing off later this month. One candidate on the list, Elizabeth Warren, she's neck and neck with Bernie Sanders nationally in the latest Quinnipiac poll and ahead in a poll out of Nevada. Warren appeared in "The Breakfast Club", a radio show hosted by Charlamagne tha God, which has become an important step for Democrats. He asked her about the DNA test she took and her Native American roots. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN (D-MA), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: I'm not a citizen of a tribe. And I shouldn't have done it. CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD, HOST, THE BREAKFAST CLUB: If you had a chance to do it over, would you? WARREN: I can't go back. But I shouldn't have. (END VIDEO CLIP) BURNETT: I sat down with Charlamagne yesterday and asked him about Warren's surging poll numbers. (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: I mean, I think it's good. I think she's rising in the polls. If you actually listen to Elizabeth Warren, she has a lot of plans, you know? Like you ask her about certain things, she can tell you, hey, I want to put $50 million in the HBCUs or talking about the black maternal death rate and what she wants to do about that. She just talks about actual issues and she has legislation she wants to present for things. I think people are into that. Everybody is running on this whole anti-Trump agenda, which is great, but that's not making me just vote on you just because you're anti-Trump. So, I think she actually had plans and policies, she sticks to that and people are into that. BURNETT: I mean, all 23-plus of them have the anti-Trump thing down, right? CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: Absolutely. BURNETT: So, it's what else is distinguishes you. All right. So, on the issue, the Achilles heel or not as the case may be we shall see, you really pushed on claims of being Native American, which she made over time, right? I mean, we all know, this has been documented. Here is more of your exchange. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) WARREN: I'm not a person of color. I'm not a citizen of a tribe. And tribal citizenship is an important distinction. And not something I am. So -- CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: Was there any benefits to that? WARREN: No, "Boston Globe" did a full investigation. It never affected -- nothing about my family ever affected any job I ever got. DJ ENVY, CO-HOST, THE BREAKFAST CLUB: You didn't get a discount in college. CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: You're kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal a little bit. Rachel Dolezal is a white woman pretending to be black. WARREN: This is what I learned from my family. CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: Yes. WARREN: Yes. (END VIDEO CLIP) BURNETT: Do you buy her answers? CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: No. Only because, you know, Elizabeth Warren like I said she has so many policies and plans and everything else is so detail when you asked her about something, when you asked her about that, she's like, that's what I learned from my family. There is so many questions can you ask. So did the rest of your family find out they weren't Native American when you did? Like -- so, I definitely don't buy her answer. BURNETT: And she cites "The Boston Globe" saying she never benefitted. It's not clear whether she thought she would. There are unanswered questions. CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: I mean, she had benefit in some way shape or form. I don't understand why she would act that would disqualify her. Like we're Americans, we've all cheated at some point in our life. We've all took some type of shortcut. We've all tried to get ahead in some way. If she did that at some point in her life, that wouldn't make me look at her be like you're a terrible. BURNETT: You wouldn't dismiss her for that. CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: No. BURNETT: You're saying her answers don't add up but the issue itself is not disqualifying for her. CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: It's the dishonesty. You can be dishonest at one point in your life, but you admit that hey, I was being dishonest here, and I learned from the lesson, I can rock with you. BURNETT: So, was she smart to put this in the rearview mirror because she was slammed for the DNA test, right? I mean, you know, Trump seized upon it. She did it in December. People said, oh, this is really bad for her. And yet, she does appear to have moved on. Was she smart to essentially do that and get it done, learn the lesson? CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: Yes, but eventually, people are going to keep asking about it until she acknowledges it in a real way. Meaning, hey, I did it, I was wrong. This is why I did. I thought I could get ahead. And, you know, I learned my lesson from it. BURNETT: It's I thought I could get ahead, if that's what you think is the case. CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: Yes. BURNETT: That's certainly not what she's saying. CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: I believe in living your truth. Live your truth and nobody can use your truth against you.
