These Hollywood Conservatives Are Standing By Trump

Via Daily Caller:

Hollywood conservatives are standing by President Donald Trump after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, with many citing the media’s reaction as the reason.

“All this does is help Trump because people have had it,” Scott Baio explained to The Hollywood Reporter in a piece published Wednesday. The outlet asked more than 50 Friends of Abe members — a group for Hollywood conservatives — if their support for the president had changed.

“Conservatives in Hollywood have had it,” Baio added. “We know who Trump is, and we don’t believe the propaganda, and I don’t think most of the country does, either. The media is almost irrelevant. It’s predictable and boring.”

“I want the man to get his agenda through, and everything else is a sideshow,” he continued. “I don’t give a shit if I ever work again. My country comes first. I guess I’m just an old, angry, successful white guy who stole everything he has from someone else.”

Fusion GPS Founder Refuses To Identify Dossier Clients In Marathon Senate Session

Via Daily Caller:

In a marathon interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the uncorroborated anti-Trump dossier, refused to identify the political clients that commissioned the salacious document.

Fusion GPS also stands behind the dossier, a lawyer for the firm said at the end of a 10-hour interview given by co-founder Glenn Simpson.

“Mr. Simpson told Congress the truth and cleared the record on many matters of interest to congressional investigators. He also kept the identities of Fusion GPS’ clients confidential,” Josh Levy, Simpson’s attorney, told The Daily Caller in a statement.

Simpson appeared for the interview after weeks of negotiations between his attorneys and the committee, which is one of three congressional panels investigation potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

Soros Claims To Be A Liberal. Here’s Where He Puts His Money

Socialist hypocrite.

Via Daily Caller:

Billionaire George Soros gives liberally to progressive causes, but he puts his financial bets on fast-food chains, GMO foods, coal, firearms and gas-guzzling cars, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group analysis of his latest financial filing.

Soros claims he is a fighter for human rights but that hasn’t kept his separate private family investment company, Quantum Group of Funds, from investing in oil exploration in Western Sahara, long viewed by human rights groups and the U.N. Security Council as a territory brutally occupied by Morocco.

Soros Fund Management, the billionaire’s main corporate investment company, disclosed his latest financial investments for the second quarter in August 2017, as required by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). A previous quarterly report showed he lost nearly $1 billion after Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. The fund manages about $30 billion in assets.

Soros latest quarterly submission to the SEC shows he invested in companies opposed by left-wing advocacy groups on issues such as promoting healthy nutrition, increasing workers’ wages, protecting the environment, and fighting climate change.

BREAKING: Texas Voter ID Law Struck Down By Obama Appointed Federal Judge

Photo IDs are discriminatory and only Anglos can get the correct IDs.

Via Washington Times:

A federal court judge in Texas struck down the state’s voter ID law on Wednesday, ruling it had a discriminatory intent and effect against Hispanic and African American voters.

The decision is a blow to the Texas legislature and to President Trump’s Justice Department, which had asked the judge to halt efforts to overturn the state’s new voter ID law since it had expanded voter ID options from an earlier version, and would protect the integrity of elections in Texas.

But U.S. District Court Judge Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos said the state’s new law “SB 5”, which had been rewritten to meet requirements set forth from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals after it had ruled in 2014 against an earlier voter ID law, “SB 14”, did nothing to cure the previous issues of racial animus and issued an injunction, preventing the law from going into effect.

“SB 5 perpetuates the selection of types of ID most likely to be possessed by Anglo voters and, disproportionately, not possessed by Hispanics and African-Americans,” Judge Ramos wrote in the 27-page opinion for the court.

Unbelievable: ACLU Admits They Are White Supremacists For Tweeting Pic Of White Baby

Just the picture of a white baby is somehow white supremacist. And ACLU acknowledges that the critics are right.

Via Daily Caller:

The American Civil Liberties Union is doing damage control after leftists on Twitter denounced the group for sharing a picture of a white baby holding an American flag.

In a tweet sent Wednesday afternoon, the ACLU captioned a photo of a Caucasian, blonde-haired child wearing a free speech onesie and waving a flag, “This is the future that ACLU members want.”

Leftists were furious over the post because they believed it endorsed white supremacy.

Worse Than Was Thought: U.S. Diplomats In Cuba Suffered Brain injuries From ‘Sonic Attack’

Why are we even there? Pull out and don’t put our people at any more risk.

Via Axios:

American diplomats in Cuba have been diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injury — and central nervous damage — after an apparent attack with a sonic weapon targeted their homes, per a review of medical records by CBS News.

The State Department hasn’t explicitly identified the source of the attack or what person or entity might have carried it out. The Cuban government has denied any involvement with the incident.

Why it matters: The severity of the apparent injuries goes far beyond what was originally reported, so it stands to reason that President Trump’s administration might choose to respond strongly given his prior rhetoric on Cuba, especially given that the report notes that the attacks on Americans are continuing.

Iran Caught Shipping Soldiers to Syria on Commercial Flights in Violation of Nuclear Deal

The Obama deal created almost no real strictures. Yet they’re not even adhering to those.

Via Free Beacon:

New photographs obtained by congressional leaders show Iran shipping militant soldiers to Syria on commercial airline flights, a move that violates the landmark nuclear agreement and has sparked calls from U.S. lawmakers for a formal investigation by the Trump administration, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

Photographs published by a Washington, D.C., think-tank and provided to Congress show Iran using its flagship commercial carrier, Iran Air, to ferry militants to Syria, where they have joined the fight against U.S. forces in the region.

The new photographic evidence has roiled congressional leaders, who accuse Iran of violating the nuclear deal, which prohibits it from using commercial air carriers for military purposes. These lawmakers are demanding the Trump administration investigate the matter and consider imposing new sanctions on Iran.

Yes, Nancy Pelosi’s Dad Helped Dedicate A Statue To Robert E. Lee And ‘Stonewall’ Jackson

But I thought she called Confederate statues ‘reprehensible?’ Update to this story.

Via Red Alert Politics:

Yesterday on Fox and Friends First, I said, “The truth is, the Democrats have a pretty poor history on Civil Rights, including Nancy Pelosi’s own father who was the Mayor of Baltimore — and was one of the people who dedicated statues to Robert E. Lee and ‘Stonewall’ Jackson, and in his speech said that they defended ‘sacred institutions.’ What are those ‘sacred institutions’? One of them is slavery.”

I’ve been asked to share the details of Minority Leader Pelosi’s father and his involvement with these Confederate statues. Pelosi’s father, Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr., spoke as the mayor at the dedication of a monument to Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson in 1948.

At the dedication, he said, “Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions.”

California’s Top Judge Tells ICE To Leave Courthouses As State Readies Sanctuary Law

Rule of law? What’s that? Liberals keep going over the slide to anarchism.

Via Daily Caller:

California’s highest ranking judicial officer has waded once again into the politically fraught debate over the Trump administration’s immigration enforcement policy.

State Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, who has previously condemned Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operations at court facilities, said Tuesday she has a duty to call out federal agents who arrest illegal immigrants in or near the California’s courthouses.

“If no one ever speaks out, then we can never be the land of the free and the home of the brave,” Cantil-Sakauye said at a panel discussion hosted by state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, according to the Sacramento Bee.

Cantil-Sakauye is one of California’s most outspoken public officials in a state widely regarded as the toughest opponent of President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcement agenda. In a March letter, she criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions and then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly for allowing ICE to conduct operations in California courts, saying that immigration agents were “stalking” illegal immigrants and undermining “access to equal justice.”

CNN Panel Of Trump Supporters Unbothered By Charlottesville Comments

Nobody who actually listened to what he said, as opposed to how the media painted it, is the least bit upset.

Via Daily Caller:

CNN’s latest panel of Trump supporters said they were entirely unbothered by Trump’s comments about the violent protests in Charlottesville.

Trump’s insistence that “both sides” were responsible for violence in Charlottesville upset a lot of the country, including some Republicans in Congress. However, the comments clearly resonated with his base.

CNN’s Tuesday morning panel brought together six Trump supporters, three men and three women.

“How many of you were troubled by the president’s response to the violence in Charlottesville?” host Alisyn Camerota asked.

Not a single member of the panel raised their hand.

Mother Of 6 Hides Out In Chicago Church To Avoid Deportation…

Via Chicago Tribune:

Instead of turning herself over to immigration officials, Francisca Lino is taking sanctuary in the same Chicago church that protected immigration activist Elvira Arellano.

Lino, 50, a Bolingbrook resident and mother of six children — five of them U.S. citizens — was scheduled to meet with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials Wednesday. Instead, she held a West Side news conference at Adalberto United Methodist Church in Humboldt Park.

“I feel sad that I had to do this and defy the law to be with my children, but we’re going to keep fighting this case,” Lino said.

The small church was filled with about 50 supporters, including Arellano, who said she would “have her back.” Several people cheered “si se puede,” or “yes we can,” as Lino addressed reporters.

Her lawyer, Chris Bergin, said he showed up to her appointment and delivered a letter to immigration officials explaining that she had decided against self-deportation.

“I made it clear that she will not be hiding from the ICE officers but that she is asking instead for protection from her God,” Bergin said.

Google Launches Hate Crime Reporting Tools, Omits Conservative News Organizations…

Because according to Google, you can’t commit hate crimes against Republicans.

Via Daily Caller:

Google and ProPublica have created a new tool that tracks hate crimes throughout the United States.

Google News Lab is developing a new tool powered by machine learning, titled by “Documenting Hate News Ending,” which tracks every hate crime reported across 50 states using data collected from February 2017 onward.

The tool is being developed as part of the “Documenting Hate project,” which was launched this January by ProPublica. It is supported by news and other digital media organizations, universities, and civil rights groups, including the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The tool features a list of articles harvested from various, largely left-leaning websites, including HuffPost, BuzzFeed, Mic, Think Progress, and even pro-Antifa publication Unicorn Booty. It runs Google News stories and filters them through Google’s natural language analysis tools to confine the results to America.

Neo Nazi Caught Crying His Eyes Out On VICE Documentary To Turn Himself Over To Police…

The guys in jail are gonna “love” him. A LOT.

Via NY Post:

A neo-Nazi who justified the killing of a 32-year-old woman protesting the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. — and later sniveled about his fears of being arrested — said he will turn himself in to authorities soon.

University of Virginia police said Christopher Cantwell of Keene, NH, is wanted on three felony charges: two counts of the illegal use of tear gas or other gases and one count of malicious bodily injury with a “caustic substance,” explosive or fire.

The self-described white nationalist acknowledged he had pepper-sprayed a counter-demonstrator during an Aug. 11 protest but insisted he was defending himself, saying he did it “because my only other option was knocking out his teeth.”

He also said he had been trying for a while to find out whether he had outstanding warrants. When police issued a statement, he said he was “convinced” he is wanted and would surrender.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has previously made it known how he feels about players protesting the national anthem.

During his appearance with Shan and RJ Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan, Jones reiterated his feelings on the matter when asked about the growing number of protests this preseason.

New Book Claims Hillary Tolerated Bill’s Sexual Escapades…

Via Wash Examiner:

On a day when Hillary Rodham Clinton is winning headlines for calling President Trump a “creep” in excerpts of her upcoming book released to MSNBC, another book set for release next week said she put up with Bill Clinton’s creepy groping of women.

Biographer Craig Shirley, who’s written several authoritative histories on former President Ronald Reagan, poured over Clinton’s womanizing and its impact on his early presidency in his latest book about former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Citizen Newt, the Making of a Reagan Conservative.

In the first authorized biography about Gingrich since he has emerged at Trump’s top outside advisor, Shirley details his influence and fights over the past four decades in Washington, many coming during the Clinton years when the Republican became speaker.
