I’ll go out on a limb and make the bold prediction that Corey Booker will not be the next president.
CNN’s most obnoxious White House correspondent is about to get rewarded again from his peers for his unprofessional behavior. According to a press release on April 12, the New York Press Club will give Jim Acosta their “Truth to Power” journalism award.
The Wrap reported that the award honors “an individual whose body of work challenges the power establishment and/or defends journalists.” The establishment being, the Trump administration of course.
Even though Acosta has been with CNN for many years, he didn’t behave this way towards the Obama administration, as you can see in our NewsBusters archive. In fact, he frequently defended and salivated over President Obama and his policies. So it seems he only speaks “truth to power” when it’s a power he doesn’t politically agree with.
Good Guy With A Gun Shoots Man Who Breaks Into Home And Starts Undressing In Front Of 12 Year Old Girl In Her Bedroom
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — The mother of a 12-year-old girl says her daughter did everything right when a man broke into their home and began undressing in the girl’s bedroom over the weekend.
Donald Oliver, 38, was in court Monday morning, a day after he was shot while allegedly breaking into the home in the 1200 block of Homeview Avenue, near Taylor Blvd.
According to court documents, it happened around 7 a.m. on April 14. That’s when Tina Burton she says her next door neighbor broke into her house, entered her 12-year-old daughter’s room and started undressing.
“He got undressed in my daughter’s room,” Burton said. “Like, what was your intentions? … You are sick.”
Despite the danger, Burton says her daughter didn’t panic.
“She was really smart,” Burton said. “She hid under the cover, turned her light down, turned her volume down on her phone to text me. When she peeked under the cover to see where he was at, she got up and ran away. She went to the back room. And I think that was really brave and smart of her.”
She had to top Omar speaking to CAIR.
Representative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) hosted an extremist anti-Israel activist who has openly and explicitly endorsed terrorism at her congressional office in mid-April to celebrate the American Muslims for Palestine Advocacy Day.
The organization American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), which organized the meeting, posted a photo on its Facebook page of Tlaib standing next to Joe Catron, a veteran anti-Israel activist who has openly praised various Palestinian organizations for committing acts of terrorism.
“A tip of my hat to Rashida Tlaib, who really goes above and beyond the call of duty in welcoming every supporter of Palestine to her office, listening to what we have to say, answering our questions, and posing for endless pictures,” Catron wrote on Facebook in a post first noted by the Daily Caller.
Catron serves as U.S. coordinator of the Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, an arm of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which the U.S., Australia, Japan, Canada, and the E.U. have all designated a terrorist organization.
But meanwhile he’s claiming the tax cut didn’t help Americans.
Via Free Beacon:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) saved roughly $38,000 in taxes thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the Republican-passed tax cut championed by President Donald Trump which the New York Times recently admitted cut most Americans’ taxes.
Sanders released ten years’ worth of tax returns Monday night, fulfilling a long-standing promise to do so. The returns indicated that Sanders is now a millionaire, having collected more than $1 million in 2016 and 2017 thanks to the sales from his books Our Revolution and Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution.
Sanders dodged questions about his new-found wealth during a Monday night townhall on Fox, declining to say if he would pay a top tax rate of 52 percent, the highest bracket proposed during his 2016 run for the White House. He also did not respond to a question from Fox’s Martha MacCallum about if he would voluntarily give money to the government to bring his tax bill up to what he thought a fair rate was.
If he did, or if his tax plan were implemented, Sanders would increase his tax liability by nearly 30 percent, analysis of his tax returns indicates.
Why was he out?

The man accused of tossing a 5-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony at Minnesota’s Mall of America once flew into a rage at a Golden Nugget restaurant in his native Chicago, whacking a customer over the head with a plate and threatening him with a knife.
Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, who’s been charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder in last Friday’s mall attack, was busted in 2014 for the horrific restaurant incident, authorities said.
“I’ve been here for 20 years at this particular location and I’ve never, ever been that frightened,” Amanda Granlund, a longtime server at the Golden Nugget in the Ravenswood neighborhood, told the Chicago Tribune on Tuesday.
Granlund detailed how Aranda walked into the eatery on a busy Sunday, ordered breakfast and later asked staffers for permission to call his bank after his card was declined, according to the news outlet.
Then, Granlund said, things took a violent turn after a customer sitting at the counter asked a server in Spanish to be moved to a table because Aranda smelled so bad he could not finish his meal.
After Criticism For Giving Less Than 1 Percent To Charity, O’Rourke Says He ‘Sacrifices’ By Running For President
Such a ridiculous man-child.
Via Free Beacon:
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke likened his service in Congress to contributions to charity on Tuesday when responding to a critic of his low charitable giving.
The former Texas congressman has taken heat over his 2017 tax return showing he and his wife Amy gave $1,166 out of their $366,455 adjusted gross income that year to charity, a giving rate of just 0.3 percent. A town hall questioner at the University of Virgina asked O’Rourke why her sister, a recent college graduate, made far less than he did but gave more to charity.
“I’ve served in public office since 2005,” he said. “I do my best to contribute to the success of my community, my state and now, of my country. There are ways that I do this that are measurable. And there are ways that I do this that are immeasurable.”
O’Rourke added there were some charities they donated to which they hadn’t recorded and itemized to write off on their taxes. He went on to say he was sacrificing at that moment by being out on the campaign trail rather than home with his family.
With a little help from Democrats, taking every effort to stop this to court.

Central American migrants apprehended at the border claimed to have been encouraged by local newspaper advertisements that promised work opportunities and free assistance from the U.S. government.
“The whole word knows, they put it in the news. They tell us everywhere if you come to the United States, they’ll help you,” said a Honduran woman apprehended at the southern border near the Rio Grande Valley. Speaking to CBS 4 news, a local news outlet, she and her family claimed they decided to make the trek to the U.S.-Mexico border after seeing several advertisements.
Numerous ads in Central America, reportedly paid for by operatives in the human smuggling business, are promising locals jobs and free help from the U.S. if they reach the border.
“Yes, we’ve been told that, we read it on our newspapers. That’s why we’re here,” said a Guatemalan pastor who was also apprehended in the Rio Grande valley area.
Additionally, the ads are telling readers that they have a better chance of getting through law enforcement if they bring a child: “We’ve been told if you are a father you can bring your child and you will be helped here if you’re in that situation,” the pastor explained.
Attorney General Barr Attempts to End Asylum Abuse Madness With New Ruling To Stop ‘Catch And Release’
Barr is trying to stop the madness and Lindsey 2.0 is trying to get the laws changed to end it permanently.
In hopes of cutting down on fraud and abuse, Attorney General Bill Barr has implemented a new ruling requiring that individuals seeking asylum in the United States be held in detention facilities until their court date. Essentially, Barr is ending catch-and-release of those claiming asylum.
As a reminder, the vast majority of asylum claims are thrown out and “credible fear” or “reasonable fear” statements are fraudulently used to gain access to the United States. A reminder from the White House:
-There has been a massive spike in migrants claiming asylum at the border regardless of whether their claims have merit or not.
-Prior to 2013, 1 out of every 100 aliens arriving at the border claimed credible fear and sought asylum. That number has skyrocketed to 1 out of every 10.
-Less than 10 percent of those who were granted credible fear in 2018 were ultimately approved for asylum.
-Capacity at immigration facilities has been pushed to its limit, driving our already broken system from “catch-and-release” to just release.
-Congress needs to fix our asylum laws by raising the credible fear standard and tightening eligibility to prevent abuse of the system.
-Currently, migrants with meritless claims often cross the border illegally, claim “credible fear,” and gain release into the interior of the country.
1 million people. Go, 2.0! This is desperately needed.

As The Daily Wire has reported, the current migrant influx crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border is unprecedented in modern history. Consider what Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, recently told Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz in an interview:
Just how bad is it? Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told me emphatically that this is the “absolute worst” he’s seen it in 21 years of his work on the border. “We have never seen what we are dealing with today. It’s unprecedented and we’re in uncharted waters.”
Judd stressed the fact that while there were years where we had up to 1.5 million apprehensions during the 1990s and early 2000s, those were total arrests, not total number of people arrested. That is because almost all of those crossing were single adults from Mexico who were repatriated back to Mexico almost immediately. As such, many tried to come back again, and Border Patrol counted new arrests of the same individual multiple times. “Last decade, we arrested the same people multiple times in one year. For example, I caught the same group of seven people three times in the same shift, so although I made 21 arrests, it was still only seven people.”
Do you see it? Do you not see it? Comment and let us know.
Is Jesus Christ visible through some photos of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire? Some people think so and have started to point out his apparent image within the flames.
Lesley Rowan is one such woman who claimed to see the figure of Jesus Christ within the flames of a picture of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire on April 15.
Taking to Facebook, Rowan shared a link from British site New Musical Express, writing, “I may be letting my mind play tricks on me here, folks take a close look at this pic and what do u see. I’ve even circled it!!!”

Via Campus Reform:
Activists and students in Berkeley, Calif. are pushing to establish the first-ever “sanctuary dorm” on the University of California-Berkeley campus, even though the campus itself already refuses to enforce immigration laws and offers plenty of resources to illegal alien students.
On April 10, members of the Berkeley chapter of the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) addressed the school’s student government to call for the conversion of the existing Eshelman Hall to a sanctuary for illegal alien students and community members, as well as to encourage the student government to “send a political message to Donald Trump,” according to meeting minutes obtained by Campus Reform.
BAMN has accrued at least 500 signatures in support of the initiative, according to a report from KNBC-TV in Los Angeles.
“Here students at Berkeley are taking the lead and defending immigrants’ rights from ICE and attacks from Donald Trump and to recognize that everyone in this community with or without papers belong here and have the right to be here,” BAMN national member Yvette Felarca told KNBC-TV.
A judge ordered Felarca to pay $20,000 to the conservative group Judicial Watch earlier in April after the activist and teacher filed what the judge termed an “unreasonable” and “frivolous” lawsuit against the organization, BerkeleySide reported.
