Trump Defends Huckabee Sanders, Slams Red Hen Restaurant

Via Free Beacon:

President Donald Trump tweeted about the Red Hen Restaurant Monday morning, the same restaurant that kicked out White press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday. Trump defended Sanders by saying the restaurant should have priorities other than kicking out those it disagrees with politically.

“The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” Trump said. “I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”

Hollywood Actors Show Up At Border To Protest Immigration Policy

Via Daily Caller:

A handful of Hollywood stars, including Lena Dunham and Joshua Jackson, showed up in Tornillo, Texas on Sunday afternoon to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policy.

The protest, located near El Paso, Texas, also attracted director Rob Reiner and Julian Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, Texas.

A tent city on federal land at the Tornillo border crossing, which houses undocumented immigrant children, was the focus of many of the Hollywood stars who attended the protest.

The El Paso Times reported that demonstrators gathered as early as 9 a.m. Sunday morning, specifically to protest the administration’s purposeful attempt to separate children from their families, as their parents try to gain entry to the United States. Folks traveled from as far away as Alaska and Milwaukee to attend the rally, which lasted for several hours in the 90-degree Texas heat.

Trump Winning In Iran: Foreign Minister Fears Collapse Of Nuclear Deal Could Topple Government

Via Daily Wire:

The Trump Administration knows exactly how to handle the despotic government of Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism: On Sunday Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif admitted to the Iran Chamber of Congress that the collapse of the 2015 nuclear deal would have “very dangerous consequences” for the country.

With protests mounting in the country against the government in full swing, what Zarif is likely referring to is the fact that any more pressure on Iran’s economic system and the government will fall. As Reuters reported, “The Iranian rial plunged to a record low against the U.S. dollar on the unofficial market on Sunday, continuing its slide amid fears of returning U.S. sanctions after President Donald Trump in May withdrew from a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program. The dollar was being offered for as much as 87,000 rials, compared to around 75,500 on Thursday, the last trading day before Iran’s weekend, according to foreign exchange website Bonbast.com, which tracks the unofficial market.”

Dem Chief Of Staff Tried To Expose Theft Ring On Capitol Hill, Was Met With Resistance

Good for her. Challenging the people behind this is a challenge.

Via Daily Caller:

Rep. Yvette Clarke’s deputy chief of staff came into the office on a Saturday in December 2015 and caught the New York Democrat’s part-time IT aide, Abid Awan, rummaging through the congresswoman’s work area with new iPods and other equipment strewn around the room, according to a House document and interviews with Hill staff.

Wendy Anderson told Abid to get out of the office, the document said. She told Capitol Hill investigators that she soon suspected Clarke’s chief of staff, Shelley Davis, was working with Abid on a theft scheme, multiple House staffers with knowledge of the situation told The Daily Caller News Foundation. They also said that Anderson pushed for Abid’s firing.

But Clarke did not fire Abid until six months after the congresswoman formally acknowledged that $120,000 in equipment was missing, records show — not until after House investigators independently announced a review that would potentially catch financial discrepancies. Even then, Anderson told investigators she believed another top staffer in Clarke’s office was subverting their efforts, a House staffer with knowledge of the investigation said.

Steve Scalise Gives Maxine Waters A Civility Lesson After She Calls For Harassing Trump Officials

If anyone has the right, it’s the man a Bernie Bro tried to assassinate.

Via Daily Caller:

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and his staff are responding to calls from Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California for protestors to form mobs and harass members of the Trump administration, calling the statements troubling and the complete antithesis of American democracy.

“Civility and respect always prevails over harassment and disrespect,” Scalise, of Louisiana, tweeted Sunday evening.

Waters told a group gathered at a rally in California Sunday that they should continue to harass members of the Trump administration and to make sure Trump officials and supporters know they aren’t welcome “anymore, anywhere.”

“If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said.

Watch: Sen. Jeff Flake Blocking Votes On Judges Until GOP ‘Stands Up’ To Trump On Tariffs

The one thing they should all be together on is getting as many judges confirmed as fast as possible. And this weenie has to put his foot on it to throw a tantrum because he doesn’t like Trump.

Via Daily Wire:

On Sunday, retiring Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and had an exchange with host George Stephanopoulos about his desire to see Republicans “stand up” to President Trump:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Some Republicans have gone even farther than you have. I was struck by a column that my former colleague George Will wrote in The Washington Post this week where he said:

“[T]o vote against the party’s cowering congressional caucuses is to affirm the nation’s honor while quarantining him. A Democratic-controlled Congress would be a basket of deplorables, but there would be enough Republicans to gum up the Senate’s machinery … asphyxiating mischief from a Democratic House.”

George Will’s vocabulary there – but his message is clear. Republican, leading conservative says it’s time to elect Democrats to the Congress.

FLAKE: Well, I can tell you Republicans need to stand up on issues like tariffs facing us right now. We’re in the nascent stages of a full scale trade war, and the president simply seems to want to escalate. And it all stems to the steel and aluminum tariffs. Congress ought to stand up and say, no, we’re not gonna do that. You can’t use section, you know, 232 to claim that Canada is a national security threat. That’s not who we are.

Gun Industry Sees Banks As New Threat To 2nd Amendment

Via Trib Live:

With Gary Ramey’s fledgling gun-making business taking off in retail stores, he decided to start offering one of his handguns for sale on his website.

That didn’t sit well with the company he used to process payments, and they informed him they were dropping his account. Another credit card processing firm told him the same thing: They wouldn’t do business with him.

The reason? His business of making firearms violates their policies.

In the wake of high-profile mass shootings, corporate America has been taking a stand against the firearms industry amid a lack of action by lawmakers on gun control. Payment processing firms are limiting transactions, Bank of America stopped providing financing to companies that make AR-style guns, and retailers like Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods imposed age restrictions on gun purchases.

The moves are lauded by gun-safety advocates but criticized by the gun industry that views them as a backhanded way of undermining the Second Amendment. Gun industry leaders see the backlash as a real threat to their industry and are coming to the conclusion that they need additional protections in Congress to prevent financial retaliation from banks.

“If a few banks say ‘No, we’re not going to give loans to gun dealers or gun manufacturers’, all of a sudden the industry is threatened and the Second Amendment doesn’t mean much if there are no guns around,” said Michael Hammond, legal counsel for Gun Owners of America. “If you can’t make guns, if you can’t sell guns, the Second Amendment doesn’t mean much.”

The issue has already gotten the attention of the Republican who is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho sent letters criticizing Bank of America and Citigroup, which decided to restrict sales of firearms by its business customers, over their new gun rules in the wake of the Florida high school shooting in February.

“We should all be concerned if banks like yours seek to replace legislators and policy makers and attempt to manage social policy by limiting access to credit,” Crapo wrote to Citigroup’s chief executive.

Honor Defense is a small operation with a handful of employees that include Ramey’s son and his wife who work out of a non-descript building in a Georgia office park north of Atlanta. In 2016, its first year, it sold 7,500 firearms. Its products — handcrafted 9mm handguns that come in a variety of colors — can now be found in more than 1,000 stores.

When Ramey noticed that neither Stripe nor Intuit would process payments through his site, he submitted a complaint with Georgia’s attorney general’s office, counting on help from a state law that prohibits discrimination by financial service firms against the gun industry. But the state rejected it, saying that credit card processing is not considered a financial service under state law.

He views the credit card issue as companies “infusing politics into business.”

“We’re just a small company trying to survive here,” Ramey said. “It’s hard enough competing with Smith & Wesson, Ruger and Sig Sauer.”

“Shoot Them All At The Border”: Oregon DMV Employee Investigated For Facebook Comment On Immigrants

All she has to do is apologize same as Peter Fonda.

Via CBS News:

An Oregon woman who works at the DMV has come under fire for comments she purportedly made on Facebook. Lori McAllen’s Facebook page is currently untraceable, but a screenshot of the comment has been widely shared online. It says she thinks immigrants crossing into the U.S. should get shot at the border.

In her bio on Facebook, McAllen wrote, “I don’t have room in my heart for drama, disrespect or hate.” But she seemed to have a very different attitude when discussing immigration policy in the comments section of a Facebook post.

“I personally think they should shoot them all at the border and call it good… it’ll save us hard working AMERICAN’S billions of dollars on our taxes!!” she wrote. She ended the remark with a winking emoticon.

The screenshots have gone viral, and the agency where she works has gotten a barrage of complaints about it. Thousands of people shared the photo of McAllen’s remark, and many called on the Oregon Department of Transportation to fire her.

“We received thousands of posts online and probably more than 100 phone calls,” Dave Thompson, a spokesman for Oregon DOT, told CBS News on Thursday. “The social media posts were coming in fast and furious — it went viral.”

Thompson said the department’s HR investigation of McAllen is still ongoing, and they are trying to authenticate the Facebook post. “HR is talking to her to determine if that was really her who wrote it,” he said. “When I looked for [her Facebook page] at about 7:30 yesterday morning, it was already gone. I don’t know if she took it down or somebody else did, but it’s gone,” Thompson said.

Oregon DOT sent out a tweet about the situation Thursday, saying: “An employee linked to an offensive Facebook post is on leave while we investigate. We take this matter very seriously and very personally. The comment doesn’t reflect our agency values and is disturbing and hurtful. Thank you for your patience as we complete the investigation.”

Transgender Woman Says She Was Harassed Over Restroom At Restaurant In Progressive DC

She should have gone to Starbucks.

Via WISTV:

A transgender woman says she was discriminated against when she went to use the restroom at a Washington DC restaurant.

The woman says she was asked to prove her gender as according to the law.

Charlotte Clymer is a transgender woman and says she and a friend walked to the ladies room around midnight at Cuba Libre restaurant.

That’s when a male bathroom attendant stopped only her to ask for her id.

“The attendant asked me to see my ID. He didn’t ask anybody else. And when I asked why, they said it’s because I have to have female on my id in order to access the restroom. That’s wrong, first of all. And second of all, I’m not going to show my id to use the restroom,” said Clymer.

She says that’s when she said the man walked in and looked around for her.

After washing her hands Clymer says the attendant and manager said it was DC law that a person must only use the restroom that matches with the gender on their identification card.

She walked outside to look up the law on her cell phone to show the manager.

“Went back inside, went straight to him and asked him to read it. He did and said, that’s incorrect and I still don’t think you’re allowed to use the restroom. I gave him one more chance, I said, I work for the human rights campaign. I need you to make a course correction right now because this is about to get very bad. And you need to understand the way the laws work in DC in regards to the LGBTQ community,” said Clymer.

Maxine Waters: Harass Trump Officials At Gas Stations, Restaurants, And Shopping Malls

Dissent is patriotic again.

Via Townhall:

On Saturday night, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters encouraged the type of recent protests against President Trump as seen in several Washington, DC and Virginia area restaurants, saying that she has “no sympathy” for those who serve in the administration and that the public should “turn on them” and “absolutely harass” White House officials while they are doing normal every day activities.

Rep. Waters (D-CA) has called for President Trump’s impeachment in the past, even leading chants at rallies saying, “Impeach 45! Impeach 45!”. Yesterday, “Auntie Maxine”, as she is affectionately known amongst her fans, added her name to a list of growing Democratic officials who are calling for Department of Homeland Security Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen to resign due to her handling of the child-migrant crisis at the US-Mexican border.

Rep. Waters then went further, adding that members of the Trump administration who continue to serve and defend the president should be harangued at gas stations, restaurants, and while shopping at department stores. “They know what they are doing is wrong,” said Rep. Waters. And for that, the public should ridicule and protest them every chance they get, according to the California congresswoman. The scrutiny should be so bad, that it forces officials such as Sec. Nielsen to “tell the President ‘No, this is wrong. I can’t hang with you. This is unconscionable. We can’t keep doing this to children,” she adds.

Obama DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson ‘Freely Admits’ They Detained Children, Families: ‘We Believed It Was Necessary’

No protests outside his house.

Via Mediaite:

On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace interviewed former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, who said that under President Barack Obama, they did detain some children alone and some families together, two policies for which Donald Trump has been under considerable fire.

After President Trump signed an executive order last week to stop the separation of families at the border, the administration took new fire for the idea that families would be detained together. Rep. Louis “The secretary of Homeland Security has lost all morals when it comes to protecting children and enforcing our immigration laws.”

It is also something for which the ACLU blasted President Obama years ago.

On Sunday, former Secretary Johnson told Chris Wallace that they thought it was necessary at the time, and that it is still is.

Wallace showed now infamous photos from 2014 of children in detention and asked if the Obama administration had handled things “so well.”

“Without a doubt the images, and the reality, from 2014, just like 2018, are not pretty,” said Johnson. “We expanded it, I freely admit it was controversial, we believed it was necessary at the time, I still believe it is necessary to remain a certain capability for families.”

Johnson also addressed another phrase that has come up many times in the last week, saying directly that “we can’t have catch and release” and stating that under his DHS in the Obama administration they “deported or repatriated” over a million people.

Teen On Alaska Airlines Flight Helps Blind And Deaf Passenger Traveling Alone

Via Fox News:

A 15-year-old girl is being praised for her hands-on approach to helping a blind and deaf passenger traveling alone on an Alaska Airlines flight last week.

Clara Daly and her mom, Jane, were traveling home from Boston, Mass., to Los Angeles when their flight was canceled. They were rebooked on another flight, where the pair encountered Tim Cook, a blind and deaf man traveling home to Portland, Ore.

Cook had been visiting his sister in Boston.

“I observed a woman signing into a man’s hand, so he could feel her words,” said Lynette Scribner, another Alaska Airlines passenger. “After watching them for a few minutes, I realized the man was both deaf and blind.”

Scribner said once Cook boarded the flight, other passengers tried their best to make his journey more comfortable — including a man who let Cook have his aisle seat.

“The man, who had given up his seat, did his best to assist with things like opening coffee creamer and pouring it in his coffee,” Scribner said.

However, the flight attendants needed someone who could communicate with Cook during the flight.

Veteran’s Small Business Is Gifted $15,000 Worth Of Lawn Equipment After His Gear Is Stolen

Via Fox News:

Just a month after finding out that he’d been robbed, an Oklahoma veteran will continue to run his landscaping business, which hires vets, thanks to a nonprofit group’s donation of $15,000 worth of new equipment on Friday.

Cody Nichols, who served in the Marines, owns and operates Our Troops Services, a small business in Tulsa that hires veterans for landscaping, fencing and construction jobs. His company took a hit on May 20 when he discovered that all of his equipment had been taken.

Nichols and his fellow veterans were left with nothing but a couple of donated push mowers to continue working, but they soon fell behind.

The veteran’s luck turned around on Friday, though, when a nonprofit group, Soldier’s Wish, surprised Nichols with $15,000 worth of new lawn equipment, the Tulsa World reported.

Devin Nunes Sets New Deadline For DOJ, FBI To Hand Over Materials On Trump Campaign Informants

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., called on Sunday for the Justice Department and the FBI to provide the House Intelligence Committee outstanding information about the use of FBI informants to make contact with members of the Trump campaign, setting a Monday deadline for his latest request.

Nunes, who chairs the House intelligence panel, blasted the DOJ and the FBI in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Sunday for “unilaterally” restricting access to some subpoenaed documents to the “Gang of Eight,” a term used to describe a bipartisan group of congressional leaders often briefed on intelligence matters.

Nunes also slammed the referral of the intelligence committee’s questions regarding transcripts and summaries of conversations between FBI sources and Trump campaign aides to Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence.

15-Year-Old Boy Runs Away From Migrant Processing Facility In Brownsville, Texas

Via WACH:

Authorities have confirmed that a 15-year-old body has run away from the Casa Padre Processing Facility in Brownsville.

The Brownsville Police Department says the 15-year-old ran away around 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Authorities tell us they discovered his disappearance during a welfare check. The child has been entered into a national database so if he is found, authorities will know who the child is.

Prior to the child leaving the facility, authorities were in contact with an individual in Dallas who claimed to be the child’s father, a source told CNN. While attempting to reunite the child and “father,” it was discovered this man may not in fact have been the boy’s biological father, the source stated. While authorities were trying to determine the man’s relationship to the boy, the 15-year-old left the facility.

A source tells CNN that the facility is not allowed to restrain children if they decide to leave the facility. As soon as the children walk across the care facility property line, they become a missing child under the jurisdiction of the local police department, by law. The source also stated to CNN that Southwest Keys is not a detention facility and can’t detain children. It’s a childcare facility. The source added that it’s unclear if the children in the care facility are aware they can leave the facility at any time. Once the child leaves, according to the source, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is notified.

Over 19,000 children have been cared for by Southwest Keys this fiscal year and less than 50 children have chosen to leave the care centers alone, the source said.

The “father” was informed the child left the facility, according to the source that spoke with CNN. Within the last two hours, the “father” said the 15-year-old called him and said he was back in Mexico after going across the river. The child is getting money from his “father” to travel back to Honduras, the source stated.

Kids In Exchange For Deportation: Detained Migrants Say They Were Told They Could Get Kids Back On Way Out Of U.S.

Complaining about being reunited. Try the legal route next time.

Via Texas Tribune:

Central American men separated from their children and held in a detention facility outside Houston are being told they can reunite with their kids at the airport if they agree to sign a voluntary deportation order now, according to one migrant at the facility and two immigration attorneys who have spoken to detainees there.

A Honduran man who spoke to The Texas Tribune Saturday estimated that 20 to 25 men who have been separated from their children are being housed at the IAH Polk County Secure Adult Detention Center, a privately-operated U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility for men located 75 miles outside Houston. He said the majority of those detainees had received the same offer of reunification in exchange for voluntary deportation.

The 24-year-old detainee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity and requested the Tribune use the pseudonym Carlos because he feared retaliation, told the Tribune that he abandoned his asylum case and agreed to sign voluntary deportation paperwork Friday out of “desperation” to see his 6-year-old daughter, who was separated from him after the pair illegally crossed the border in late May. The man said two federal officials suggested he’d be reunited with his daughter at the airport if he agreed to sign the order, which could lead to him being repatriated to his violence-torn home country in less than two weeks.

“I was told I would not be deported without my daughter,” said Carlos, adding that he’s now hoping to revoke the voluntary deportation order he signed and get legal help to fight his case. “I signed it out of desperation… but the truth is I can’t go back to Honduras; I need help.”

Carlos said he’s only spoken to his daughter once — on June 21 — since the pair were separated three weeks ago in McAllen. He said he paid a smuggler $7,000 for the 10-day journey from Honduras because he feared being caught up in the violence waged by organized crime syndicates and gangs in the country. They turned themselves in to Border Patrol officers shortly after illegally crossing into the United States on a raft that pushed off from the banks of the Rio Grande on the Mexico side near Reynosa, Carlos said.

He said he wanted a better life for his only daughter and hoped U.S. officials would grant them asylum. He was told he did not pass the first hurdle — proving he had “credible fear” of persecution or torture in Honduras — but volunteer attorneys have instructed him to revoke the paperwork he signed and appeal his credible fear ruling before an immigration judge.

Brothers Sentenced In $1.4M Welfare-For-Cash Scheme At Maine Halal Market

Start the denaturalization process.

Via BDN:

The former owner of a Portland halal market who, with his brother, traded $1.4 million in federal food benefits for cash was sentenced Monday afternoon in U.S. District Court to three years in prison.

The federal prosecutor called the case “one of the largest, if not the largest, fraud cases involving [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program] benefits in [Maine].”

Ali Ratib Daham, 41, of Westbrook, who originally owned Ahram Halal Market, 630 Forest Ave., pleaded guilty in November to one count each of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government, money laundering and theft of government funds.

A halal market under different ownership still operates at that address.

Daham remains free on bail until July 18, when he must report to a prison assigned by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

His brother, Abdulkareem Daham, 23, was sentenced Monday morning to two years in prison. He was convicted after a three-day jury trial in January of conspiracy to defraud the United States, according to court documents.

The older brother was ordered to pay $1.4 million in restitution, while the younger was ordered to pay up to $955,000, according to their attorneys. The restitution order states that the men are equally responsible for payments but the younger brother’s payments are capped.

Ali Daham already has paid $80,000 toward restitution, according to court documents.

In addition to prison time, both men were sentenced to three years of supervised release.

In sentencing the older brother, U.S. District Court D. Brock Hornby, who himself is a naturalized citizen, said there were “no winners in a case like this.”

“By sentencing two brothers, I realize I’m creating great pain for this family,” he said. “I’m also creating great pain for the immigrant community, as many members have told me he was a great helper to them. Sadly, he was a helper to them by defrauding the government.”

Mom Of Bronx Boy, 15, Killed In ‘Brutal’ Stabbing Says She Hasn’t Heard From Mayor De Blasio

De Blasio is too busy rushing to the border to posture and make a name for himself with progressives nationally over immigration nonsense. He can’t be bothered to actually do his job in NYC.

Via Fox News:

The grieving family of a Bronx teen murdered in a horrific case of mistaken identity last week still hasn’t heard a peep from Mayor de Blasio or Police Commissioner James O’Neill, the mom told The Post on Sunday.

“I have not heard from them. No one in their offices contacted me,” said Leandra Feliz, 48 — as she left home Sunday to make funeral arrangements for her 15-year-old son, Lesandro Guzman-Feliz.

Guzman-Feliz — a member of the NYPD’s Explorers youth program who dreamed of becoming a cop — was dragged from a Bronx bodega Wednesday night and mercilessly hacked to death with machetes by a half-dozen thugs. The chilling slaying was caught on surveillance video.

The gangbangers — believed to be members of the ruthless Dominican gang Trinitarios — may have mistaken Guzman-Feliz for another young man seen in a raunchy video having sex with one of the thugs’ female relatives, police sources have said.

Sarah Sanders Booted So Restaurant Could Uphold ‘Certain Standards,’ Co-Owner Says

Update to this story.

Via Fox News:

A co-owner of a restaurant that refused to serve White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Friday reportedly cited morality and living up to “certain standards,” as the reason why.

Stephanie Wilkinson recalled the moments leading up to the encounter in an interview with the Washington Post, starting with a phone conversation she had with an employee, who revealed that Sanders was dining at the Red Hen in Lexington, Va.

After her chef reportedly told her that “the staff is a little concerned,” Wilkinson left her home and headed for the restaurant.

“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation,” Wilkinson told the Post. “I have a business, and I want the business to thrive.”

“This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals,” she continued. She also reportedly described the actions of Trump’s White House as “inhumane and unethical.”[…]

Looking back, Wilkinson told the Post, she “would have done the same thing again.”

Meanwhile, an unaffiliated restaurant in Washington, also called the Red Hen, was working to convince customers that it was not involved in the Sanders dispute, which took place in Virginia.
