The political climate in this country has gotten out of hand in the wake of President Trump. Protests have been widespread — and violent — but now they are including America’s very own elected Congressmen. How far is too far?

A sit-in at Manhattan’s Trump Tower was organized on Tuesday, which included a number of lawmakers at the federal and state levels. The event ended with several arrests, including that of Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Washington Examiner reported. He was one of three Democrat Congressmen arrested.

The sit-in took place after President Trump gave a 40-minute speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday morning. He was expected to stay at Trump Tower afterward, however, he was not present at the time of the protest.

The purpose of the protest was to demand Congress pass Dream Act legislation to protect immigrants affected by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the Obama-era order which Trump recently ended.

Other notable attendees in the protest were Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), and Democrat Speaker for the New York City Council, Melissa Mark-Viverito. Both Grijalva and Mark-Viverito were arrested, but Espaillat was not.

“We are here to defend our immigrant communities,” Mark-Viverito stated before her arrest, according to NY Daily News. She was photographed while placed in plastic handcuffs and loaded into a law enforcement bus with other arrested protesters.

According to Time, the protest organizers planned on being arrested at the event. When they refused to remove from the sidewalk — which obstructed public property — their wishes of arrest were fulfilled.

The New York Police department announced, “Since you have refused to leave the roadway, you will be placed under arrest on the charge of disorderly conduct.” Upon the group’s failure to comply, they were arrested.

Gutierrez has a history of political demonstrations — and arrests for them. In August, he was among an estimated 30 protesters arrested during a sit-in on the White House sidewalk that both commemorated the fifth anniversary of DACA and protested its ending. He was also arrested in 2010 and 2011 for the same act of protest — a sit-in style protest before the White House against the deportation of illegal immigrants.

The group justified their protest as appropriate pressure against the Trump administration and Congress to defend thousands of immigrants, deemed “Dreamers.” At the same time, they opposed expanded border security measures and the border wall, which they believe put immigrants’ safety in jeopardy.

In a statement made following his arrest, Gutierrez claimed, “We’re taking the necessary steps to make it clear to President Trump, the Republicans, and the Democrats that we will continue this peaceful fight for DREAMers and immigrants as long as it takes to enact legislation and put DREAMers in a safe place… today we are standing with diverse allies to make sure Congress and the President do more than just talk about solutions, they actually follow through with action.”

These Leftist politicians continue to make a mockery out of themselves. Their arrests don’t yield change; it only damages their credibility. Immigration appears to be the only issue they’re willing to protest for, which is stunning considering other serious issues, such as the widespread violence of Antifa or the staggering statistics of unemployment. Perhaps Americans will be more willing to listen if these Democrats decide to protest something that affects everyday Americans.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
