Sister of Slain El Paso Couple Blasts Local Dems for Not Welcoming Trump to their City
[PJMedia] The sister of a couple that was shot to death during the rampage at a Walmart in El Paso on Saturday lashed out at unnamed local Democrat politicians for saying that President Trump is not welcome in their city. Trump plans to visit both Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, on Wednesday, where he is expected to meet with local officials, first responders, and survivors of the shootings in each city.

Andre and Jordan Anchondo were slaughtered while shielding their two-month-old son from the killer’s gunfire. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up for the couple's three children.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, their sister, Vibora (Deborah) Anchondo, angrily upbraided the Democrats, calling them "monsters" who "do not deserve to be mentioned by name." She also called the politicians "pure evil" for turning the president's visit "into a political issue."

"It’s such a shame that two of our local politicians (I refuse to say their names as they don’t deserve it) are saying that our President is not welcome on Wednesday," Anchondo wrote on Facebook. "I cannot believe how these monsters are using the tragic event to push their political agenda."
She isn't wrong.

Expect her to be doxxed and threatened by the fascists

#2  What Trump should do, but probably won't, is call out every demagogue that is claiming he "isn't welcome" here or there. He should point out this is America and all American citizens enjoy the right of free passage to any part of the country they choose to visit. Then he should point out it's hypocritical for them to claim an American is not welcome on any part of American soil while they simultaneously claim non-Americans have some nebulous mystical right to be here. I bet it would quiet them down. It would be a riot watching the media try to figure out how to spin it.

Instead, he'll focus on the victims, and he'll get roasted for that too...

Dem Rep. Joaquin Castro: Here's A List Of The Names Of Max Trump Donors From My Hometown, To Do With As You Wish
Note that this is Joaquin, not Julian. The former is a congressman from San Antonio, the latter is his identical twin brother, the former mayor. Julian's the one running for president.

Now that we've gotten that straight: Is this A-hole out of his mind?

Joaquin Castro


Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump ‐ the owner of @BillMillerBarBQ , owner of the ⁦
@HistoricPearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc⁩.

Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ;invaders.;

"Not surprised a Castro would go after political dissidents like this," sniffed Siraj Hashmi.

I won’t reproduce the entire tweet as I don’t want to republish the identifying information. Suffice it to say that there’s a list attached with the names ‐ and employers ‐ of 44 people from San Antonio who gave the maximum allowable by law to Trump. Many are retirees. They aren’t all rich, I’d bet: The max individual donation to a campaign under federal law is just $2,700, a sizable amount but one within the means of someone who’s middle-class, has a nest egg, and is very enthusiastic about a politician. Castro’s not targeting people who can afford their own private security, in other words. He’s leading the most rabid anti-Trumpers, the sort of people who’d very much care to know who’s donating to Trump, right to the office doors of the "offenders."

"If a Republican member did this," tweeted Luke Thompson, "it would lead the nightly news." Unquestionably. We were reminded of the truth of that statement just a few hours ago, in fact. Sarah Palin’s defamation suit against the Times stems from the fact that the "crosshairs" electoral map she published before the 2010 midterms was cited ‐ baselessly ‐ by liberals afterward as possible inspiration for Giffords’s shooter. For the left, scapegoating Palin was a way of making a point about how political rhetoric can amount to incitement when it gets hot enough and when specific people are designated as targets for it. We must be careful with what we say, and of whom we say it, lest damaged minds take the wrong cue and lash out.

Now, on the day Palin’s defamation suit was cleared to proceed by a federal court, here’s a Democratic congressman publishing his own list of "targets" ‐ not of politicians before an election, but of average citizens. He has every reason to know what’s in store for them as a result, at a minimum boycotts of their businesses and almost certainly physical threats. Doubtless he’s received some threats himself over the years, and when he did Castro could call upon the Capitol Police for special protection. Whom do the Trump voters on his list turn to?

And how many of them live in Castro’s own district, I wonder? Bad enough that you’d find any congressman organizing a boycott ‐ and worse ‐ of you because of your political donations. Imagine if it turned out to be your own congressman.

Trump’s campaign spokesman is incensed, and rightly so:

#8  Nero,

You are close. Castro outed Trump donors IN HIS DISTRICT. He took the overall Dem attack strategy of blaming Trump and blamed it on Trump supporters in CASTRO'S district.

This was to improve his own political strength and power by attempting to eliminate opposition danger relative to him, not the victims of El Paso, Ohio, California, hopefully without exposing this, his true motive.

More possible fraud from Rep Ilhan Omar; bonus a connection to Keith Ellison
  • Last week, DailyMail.com told how Omar was dining and holding hands with a mystery man at a secluded Italian restaurant in Playa Del Rey, California in March
  • The man can now be identified as Mynett, who tried to prevent a bystander from taking a video of the couple
  • The relationship comes to light days after DailyMail.com revealed Omar recently split with her husband Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children
  • Mynett, 38, is a campaign fundraising expert, having previously worked for Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison as his national finance director
  • Omar took over Ellison's congressional seat when he ran for Attorney General
  • Federal Election Commission records show Omar's camp has paid Mynett's company - E Street Group - more than $250K in consulting fees and travel expenses in a year

Fired FBI agent Peter Strzok files wrongful termination suit
How utterly adorable. Still, it should keep him busy for a while, and out of more serious trouble.
[NYPOST] A former FBI agent who worked the feds’ investigation into Russian election meddling ‐ and who sent text messages slamming then-candidate Donald Trump
...Oh, noze! Not him!...
‐ filed a lawsuit Tuesday charging that the bureau caved to "unrelenting pressure" from the president when it fired him.

The suit from Peter Strzok also alleges he was unfairly punished for expressing his political opinions, and that the Justice Department violated his privacy when it shared hundreds of his text messages with news hounds.

"The campaign to publicly vilify Special Agent Strzok contributed to the FBI’s ultimate decision to unlawfully terminate him," said the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, DC, "as well as to frequent incidents of public and online harassment and threats of violence to Strzok and his family that began when the texts were first disclosed to the media and continue to this day."

The complaint, which names Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Chris Wray as defendants, revives a controversy that conservative critics of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation called proof that the FBI was biased against Trump.

‘Flagrantly illegal.’ Trump sues California over new law targeting his tax returns
[SACBEE] President Donald Trump
...His ancestors didn't own any slaves...
, the Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, Republican Party, and the national GOP joined together Tuesday to sue California over a new tax-return law Gov. Gavin Newsom signed last week.

The law requires Trump and other presidential candidates to release the last five years of their tax returns to get their names on the state’s 2020 primary ballot.

Trump has yet to weigh in on the issue himself. His personal attorney Jay Sekulow criticized "California’s attempt to circumvent the constitution."

"Today we have taken decisive action in federal court challenging California’s attempt to circumvent the U.S. Constitution," Sekulow said in a statement. "The issue of whether the president should release his federal tax returns was litigated in the 2016 election and the American people spoke. The effort to deny California voters the opportunity to cast a ballot for President Trump in 2020 will clearly fail. Legal scholars from across the political spectrum have roundly condemned this flagrantly illegal statute. We are confident the courts will as well."

Trump’s campaign filed its 15-page complaint in the U.S. Eastern District of California. Republican state politicians, the California Republican Party, and the Republican National Committee filed a similar 26-page lawsuit on Tuesday seeking an injunction.

The latest legal challenges announced Tuesday come days after the conservative group Judicial Watch filed for an injunction to stop the law in its tracks. Rocky de La Fuente, a California native and 2020 Republican presidential candidate, filed a similar complaint beforehand.
Rocky is a San Diego area crank
Trump argues in his lawsuit that the U.S. Constitution establishes a firm set of eligibility requirements related to age and citizenship. According to the lawsuit, "These are the exclusive qualifications for federal office."
The Constitution's also got that prohibition against bills of attainder.
The complaint from the Trump campaign filed Tuesday also calls the new law "a partisan effort" that is part of "the Democrats’ ongoing crusade to obtain the president’s federal tax returns in the hopes of finding something they can use to harm him politically."

California will argue it has administrative jurisdiction over its state ballots.

In a signing statement, Newsom said the Constitution "grants states the authority to determine how their electors are chosen, and California is well within its constitutional right to include this requirement."

Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who will defend California in court, said on Monday that the state had not yet been served with a complaint. While he declined to comment on the specifics of pending cases, he said he’d be ready for the lawsuit

"We’ll be ready to do what we need to do to defend California’s law and statutes," Becerra said.

McConnell’s Team Responds After Ocasio-Cortez Asks ‘Are You Paying For Young Men To Practice Groping’
[DAILYCALLER] Mitch McConnell’s campaign responded to accusations he is paying "for young men to practice groping" after a photo of teens in "Team Mitch" shirts posing lewdly with a cardboard figure of Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez
Dem represntative from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details...

"These young men are not campaign staff, they’re high schoolers and it’s incredible that the national media has sought to once again paint a target on their backs rather than report real, and significant news in our country," the Kentucky Republican senator’s campaign manager Kevin Golden said, according to The Washington Post.

"Team Mitch in no way condones any aggressive, suggestive, or demeaning act toward life sized cardboard cut outs of any gender in a manner similar to what we saw from President Obama’s speechwriting staff several years ago," Golden continued, referencing a photo of speechwriter Jon Favreau groping a cutout of former Secretary of State Crooked Hillary Clinton
...former first lady, former secretary of state, former presidential candidate, Conqueror of Benghazi, Heroine of Tuzla, formerly described by her supporters as the smartest woman in the world, usually described by the rest of us as The Thing That Wouldn't Go Away...
that sparked significant backlash in 2008.

Joe Biden compares Donald Trump to the Ku Klux Klan
  • [Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Joe Biden blasts Donald Trump with Ku Klux Klan comparisons following mass-shooting blamed on man taking vengeance over 'invasion' from Mexico

  • Democrats pummeled the president on Monday, saying his harsh rhetoric against illegal immigration is responsible

  • The second of the weekend's two mass-shooters was a political liberal who admiredElizabeth Warren, but the first was deadlier and covered more in media

  • Biden is the Democratic presidential front-runner; he says the president is using a racial 'dog whistle' to embolden white supremacists
Y'see, the thing with dog whistles is that since nobody can hear them but Weimeraners and such, you can't deny having used one.

Eventually they'll come to the conclusion Trump's a witch, since there's no way he could have outsmarted and outperformed a bunch of geniuses like them without help from Old Scratch. Impeachment will have to make way for burning at the stake.

#8  Racist, nazi, klansman, h8ter...they're all slurs, every bit as bad as if I was to call Old Joe a n***** lover. I would never because I understand how offensive that term is. But Joe doesn't seem to understand. I think that every time some progressive uses a word like this to describe someone with whom they disagree, it needs to be thrown back in their face with a vengeance. It is unacceptable. It is highly offensive and it needs to stop. You have a problem with me? Tell me exactly what it is without using offensive language. Let's have a discussion that doesn't rely on insults. Is that even possible? Maybe not. In fact, probably not because they are attempting to defend the indefensible and they know it. Open borders? Medicare for all? Socialism? OK, let's talk about the costs. Steal from the rich until everybody is dirt poor like Venezuela? Let's get real. It's not about race, it's all about greed and power. Their rhetoric is full of holes. They have no logical or legal arguments, only greed and lust for power and so they have no choice but to resort to lies, distortions, insults and slurs. They need to be called on it.

With these people the answer is an unqualified, resounding NO

#10  Projection by Biden. He's looking for something that will stick and he is having trouble. No one is buying this old Dem crapola. The Dems own slavery and racism from the days of the Civil War despite what they say.

#11  Trump should fill the black communities with truth about the Democrat history of slavery, Jim Crow Laws, and urban plantation politics.

#12  I see his average poll numbers on RPC are 31%. Which means that over 2/3 of his own party want someone else. Next year could be very interesting, even without Marianne Williamson.

#13  12 years ago in 2007 we had a horrible crime occur locally. A young white couple were brutalized and murdered by 4-5 black thugs, some with prison records. The girl was raped, sodomized and stuffed in a trash can where she died. The boy was sodomized, shot three times and his body set on fire near the Norfolk-Southern railroad tracks. All of the thugs were eventually tried and convicted. One received the death sentence. The others lesser sentences. Now, one of thugs who received a light sentence is being re-tried under new charges for murder as the result of new evidence.

"Twelve years after the murder of a young Knox County couple, Eric D. Boyd, 47, faces charges including kidnapping, rape and murder. He's accused of having a direct role in the attacks on Chris Newsom, 23, and Channon Christian, 21, in January 2007."

At the time of when the early initial trials began, there were protests in front of the court house. On one side of the street was the KKK, while on the other side were those opposing capital punishment. The police were in between maintaining order. The KKK didn't amount to a very large crowd and were from outside the community. The anti-capital punishment crowd, likewise not that large, were mostly students, faculty from UT and local Quakers from the community.

I agree with an earlier comment from Mike K, there is not much clan activity around here that I'm aware of. During the past 40 years, I've not heard much of the KKK around here. I think the clan is mostly political fodder from the left-wing hate grist mill.

At the time of this horrific crime, I think that most of the community wouldn't have minded if this crew had strung up. The only other time that I'm aware that feelings were running that high was when a bunch of young Satanists who were into witchcraft killed a young Swedish couple and their child near a rest stop north of here off I81. Their little boy survived after being shot in the face. Most people are good but occasionally some very bad people are running around out there. Both of these stories would certainly justify people carrying a concealed firearm. It might not have prevented either of these crimes but at least it might have given the victims a chance.
