    A Venezuelan refugee pushed back strongly on Ilhan Omars anti-capitalism statements, claiming on Fox & Friends" that Democrats have a hidden agenda behind their police reform protests. I think that the big problem that her statement shows is that she revealed her whole intention from the beginning was not about the criminal justice system," said Daniel Di Martino, who grew up in Venezuela and left the country as socialism took hold. "The Democrats have not wanted to pass things like the Justice Act that the GOP proposed in the Senate by Tim Scott, said Daniel Di Martino, who grew up...

    Despite their roots in reality, there is no doubt that these crises -- and the White House and Senate's attempts to tackle them -- would be reported differently if Hillary Clinton were president. It took more than five years, but the corporate media finally have the tools and strategy to successfully defeat President Donald Trump.The corporate media have these, mind you, despite the Democratic Party, whose foibles, stumbles, and misfires over those same five years have only complicated efforts, kicking off with a disastrous 2016 defeat and eventually culminating in a near-invisible and increasingly senile presidential candidate stumbling through a...

    The Washington Times ^ | JUNE 28, 2020 | VALERIE RICHARDSON
    President Trump removed Sunday his retweet of a protest video that showed a supporter yelling white power, a comment that the White House said he never heard. President Trump is a big fan of The Villages. He did not hear the one statement made on the video, said White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere. What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters. The two-minute video taken at The Villages, a retirement community in Florida, showed anti-Trump protesters yelling at Trump supporters as they rolled by in golf carts decorated with pro-Trump signs and American flags. After...

    Three events last week showed that Democrats do not want a mere transfer of power if they win the November election: they intend to revolutionize our entire system of government. The first happened Wednesday, when Democrats blocked the Senate from considering a bill on police reform by Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC). Scott, who is African American, has been working on the issue for years. He had the full support of the rest of the Republican caucus. He also agreed to consider whatever amendments Democrats offered. They still used the filibuster to block the bill from even being debated. The episode...
  • Tim Scott: Pelosi Claiming GOP Tried Getting Away with Floyds Murder was Most Outrageous, Sinful Comment

    That, of course, was blocked and filibustered by the Democrats. They didnt want to talk about it. Debated, amended. She said that you and your Republican colleagues supporting the Justice Act were basically complicit in the murder of George Floyds, saying that you were trying to get away with his murder. As someone whos worked very hard on this issue as a black man. What was your reaction when you heard that from Speaker Pelosi? SEN. TIM. SCOTT: It was the most outrageous, sinful comment Ive heard as a public official period. I thought to myself that how in the...
  • Trump a Voice of Reason on Police Reform

    06/21/2020 6:14:19 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | June 21, 2020 | Debra J. Saunders
    President Donald Trump was the voice of reason in Washington Tuesday as D.C. Democrats were sowing division. Before he signed an executive order on police reform in the Rose Garden, Trump had reached out to the families of black men killed by police or vigilantes and met with them privately. Then Trump signed the order in the Rose Garden flanked by law enforcement leaders who support the administration's reforms. When former President Bill Clinton worked with both sides on an issue, they called it "triangulation." Much credit goes to Tim Scott of South Carolina, the only black Republican in...

    President Trump signed an executive order on police reform Tuesday at the White House mandating more accountability among U.S. law enforcement as the nation continues to reel over the Minneapolis police killing of unarmed, African American man George Floyd. The measure will center largely on de-escalation training, use-of-force standards, and help bring swifter justice to officers who use excessive force. But as expected Trump's measure was not enough for some Democrats. "Much, much too little and does not go far enough," Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) reacted on FOX News Channel’s "Special Report" with Bret Baier. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) appears to believe...

    During a contentious interview with Republican South Carolina Senator Tim Scott on Thursday, NBCs 3rd Hour Today show co-host Craig Melvin wondered if the only black GOP member of the U.S. Senate was being used by his party as a token to lead policing reform efforts in the wake of George Floyds death. Scott promptly rejected the insulting suggestion.--- After Scotts response on Thursday, fellow co-host Al Roker jumped in and tried to push the Republican to denounce President Trump: Well, Senator, let me ask you this, the President just announcing that hes gonna host a rally next week, Tulsa,...

    Sen. Tim Scott told Varney & Co. on Friday that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden made the most condescending and arrogant comments toward the black community he has ever heard. Biden faced a swift backlash on Friday for suggesting during a radio interview with host Charlamagne tha God that those having a hard time "figuring out" whether to support him or President Trump "ain't black." Scott, R-S.C., said such comments are not surprising considering Bidens record in "sponsoring a crime bill in the 1990s that jailed more African-American males than any other legislation." And President Trump co

    Three Republican senators are warning that they will oppose the $2 trillion coronavirus response package unless a massive drafting error in the legislation, that they say will create an incentive for employers to lay off employees, is fixed. Fox News is told the concern is that the current version could pay workers more in unemployment benefits than they're currently making, by sticking a $600 per week payment on top of ordinary benefits that are calculated as a percentage of income. This could disrupt the labor market further, the lawmakers warn. "A massive drafting error in the current version of the...

    Washington (CNN)More than 200 members of Congress are urging the Supreme Court to reconsider -- if not overrule -- the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion nationwide. Thirty-nine Republican senators and 168 members of the House of Representatives, almost all of them Republicans, signed a so-called "friend of the court" brief filed on Thursday by the national anti-abortion group Americans United for Life in connection with a challenge to a Louisiana abortion access law due to be heard in March. The signers include Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Mike Lee and Mitt Romney...

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said President Trump is innocent, and theres no way in the world the U.S. Senate will remove him from office. One thing is crystal clear, what we heard this week from the House was no facts, no evidence, nothing that would lead to an impeachment, Scott said on Friday. This is a place where I think all Americans wanted to know: where is the fact pattern that leads to a conclusion of impeachment? What we heard instead, Scott continued, was contradictory conclusions from Vindman and Williams. We heard Inconsistency from Sondland. He says there was...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz on Saturday said that to resurrect America's greatness it was necessary to revive the economy, defend the Constitution, and restore America's place in the world arena. Appearing at the conference themed "America at Its Best," Cruz told more than 3,000 attendees to the Western Conservative Summit in Denver that "the single biggest lie" is that Republicans are the party of the rich. "The rich have done fine with big government," he said. The ones most hurt by big government are those who are struggling. The event, in its fifth year, is sponsored by the Centennial Institute,...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Monday declined to answer questions about whether he felt President Trump's tweet attacking four Democratic congresswomen was racist. In a video tweeted by NBC News reporter Alison King, the Utah senator is asked if he would call Trump's tweetwhich suggested the four lawmakers "go back" to their home countriesracist. "That's all I got, thanks," Romney said, before walking off. The Hill has reached out to Romney's office for comment. Romney told King that Trump "fell far short" in his calling to unite Americans. "I certainly feel a number of these new members of Congress have...

    Lawmakers are returning to Congress on Monday following a racist series of tweets from President Donald Trump aimed at four Democratic lawmakers, and Republican leaders as well as rank-and-file members are feeling the pressure to weigh in on the President's comments. But many leaders in the party are so far not weighing in publicly -- including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. "If he issues a statement on this we'll be sure to forward," said McConnell spokesman David Popp in response to a question from CNN. While many Republican leaders in Congress have thus far not spoken out, some GOP members...

    As government funding has been so closely tied to this issue over the past few months, I would like to reiterate that keeping the government open is a good thing. However, my friends on the Democratic side of the aisle continue to ignore their responsibility to secure our borders and keep the American people safe. It is no secret that their hatred for our president now drives the policy-making decisions of those on the left, no matter how beneficial the policies are for families across the country. I support the presidents usage of a national emergency to take the responsible...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is working behind the scenes to boost the prospects of Neomi Rao, one of his former law clerks, to serve on a powerful federal appeals court in Washington speaking privately with at least two Republican senators as she faces a contentious confirmation fight. Sen. Josh Hawley (Mo.) who publicly questioned how Rao would rule on issues such as abortion before supporting her in a key vote Thursday, disclosed this week that he had called Thomas. The justice has also phoned Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), a sometimes deciding voice on controversial nominees. He called me...
