Levin SLAMS liar-Pulosi’s Charge Of POTUS Engaging In ‘CRIMINAL COVER-UP’
by Wayne Dupree  
{thepoliticalinsider.com} ~ One of the biggest problems I see is that the current Democratic party and their leadership only views the Constitution as an impediment to their agenda... to the degree that they understand it at all. Conservative radio host Mark Levin felt he had to call out Rep. liar-Nancy Pulosi for making the statement that President Trump was involved in a criminal cover-up. Just two weeks ago, she claimed Trump was involved in a cover-up, so now she’s upgraded that charge to “criminal.” liar-Pulosi using the words “criminal cover-up” really puts a stain on things and ups the ante on hate rhetoric toward the Commander-in-Chief. ” As you will see in the video below, he didn’t hold back his feelings when speaking about liar-Pulosi. The one thing about Levin is that he is a very wise political commentator, always referring back to the Constitution and why it made us the greatest country in history. These Dems are the very reason the Constitution is so vitally important. It is a check and balance against them using the power of government to inflict violence on society...  https://thepoliticalinsider.com/levin-slams-pelosis-charge-of-potus...

Assad Survives Thanks to Iranian Oil
and Egyptian Consent
by David Adesnik
fdd.org } ~ The Trump administration has accomplished something extraordinary: Its aggressive sanctions have taken two million barrels a day of Iranian oil off the market without driving global prices upward... Tehran is also contending with a deep recession and 50% inflation. Sanctions, according to the architects of the Iran nuclear deal, shouldn’t have been this effective. In 2015 Barack scumbag/liar-nObama warned that if the U.S. walked away from his nuclear deal with Iran, “the sanctions system unravels.” Yet the escalating pressure on Iran has an unintended beneficiary: Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Sanctions have driven away paying customers for Iranian oil, so Tehran is employing part of its oil surplus to mitigate Syria’s dire shortages. Five tankers of Iranian crude have arrived at the port of Baniyas since early May, according to commercial satellite imagery from the analysts at Tanker Trackers. Each ship delivers about a million barrels of oil, currently worth more than $60 million. Mr. Assad’s refineries process the crude, turning out gasoline and other products the regime can provide to its armed forces or sell to civilians for cash. This Iranian oil doesn’t return to global markets, but it does fuel Mr. Assad’s atrocities. As part of his latest offensive, the Syrian dictator is again bombing dozens of hospitals and medical facilities, leading President Trump to tweet: “The world is watching this butchery. What is the purpose, what will it get you? STOP!” The president can help stop the butchery by restoring pressure on Syria’s oil supply. Last autumn the U.S. Treasury exposed networks of illicit traders and broadcast a global advisory to the petroleum shipping industry, warning of serious consequences for sanctions violators. Syrian oil supplies dried up rapidly. In the following five months, only a single tanker of Iranian crude arrived at Baniyas. Damascus residents began lining up before dawn to buy cooking gas. The regime cut gasoline rations to one gallon a day. Then, for reasons that are unclear, Iranian tankers began to breach the sanctions wall in May. The most likely scenario is that the Egyptian government allowed Iranian tankers through the Suez Canal, the pivotal bottleneck for any vessel headed to the Eastern Mediterranean from the Persian Gulf...

Colorado sued over end-run 
around Electoral College
by wnd.com:  The state of Colorado is being sued by government watchdog Judicial Watch for refusing to turn over information... disclosing how Colorado’s secretary of state helped the state legislature in its attempted end-run around the Electoral College. The state’s lawmakers voted last winter to allow massive population centers on the East and West coasts to decide where Colorado’s modest number of Electoral College votes would be cast in presidential races. Under the Constitution, the Electoral College gets one vote for each member in the U.S. Congress, there currently being a combined House and Senate total of 538. Thus, it requires 270 votes for a win in a presidential race. But, infuriated by the 2016 election, when Donald Trump easily won in the Electoral College despite scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote, Democrats have been working on upending that constitutional process. Because a constitutional amendment is unlikely to succeed, leftist states have been adopting a “National Popular Vote” concept whereby they pledge their votes to the winner of the national popular vote. For Colorado, this would effectively amount to casting its votes in accordance with the wishes of the tens of millions of voters in California as well as large blocs of voters in New York and other massive coastal population centers, which vote predominantly for Democrats. Judicial Watch said it is suing Colorado under the Colorado Open Records Act on behalf of reporter Todd Shepherd. The action was filed against Secretary of State Jena Griswold, a Democrat, who has openly endorsed abandonment of the Electoral College...  https://www.wnd.com/2019/06/colorado-sued-over-end-run-around-elect...

CAIR Oddly Silent About Hamas-linked 
Activist's Deportation Fight
by John Rossomando
investigativeproject.org } ~ The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been unusually silent about the attempt to deport Hamas-linked activist Abdelhaleem al-Ashqar... Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents placed Ashqar, 60, on an airplane to Israel last week, but he was able to return to the United States after a federal judge said Ashqar could only be sent to Jordan. Ashqar was sentenced in 2007 to 11 years in prison for  obstruction of justice and criminal contempt after he refused to provide immunized grand jury testimony about his knowledge of Hamas activities. He played a leadership role in a Hamas-support network in the United States known as the "Palestine Committee." Ashqar helped organize a 1993 Palestine Committee meeting in Philadelphia that gave rise to CAIR's founding. Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad – who would become CAIR's co-founders the following year, participated in the meeting. Ahmad also helped organize the Philadelphia meeting and even called it to order. CAIR was added to the Palestine Committee's organizational roster as soon as it was formed. Evidence like that prompted the FBI in 2008 to cut off outreach work with CAIR. "Until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner," an FBI assistant director explained in a letter to U.S. senators. The policy remains in effect. CAIR, thus far, has said nothing about Ashqar's plight, which is surprising for a case involving a Palestinian activist waging a fight against deportation. But a recent Hamas press release suggests the terror group may still consider him one of theirs...

Hispanics stick with Trump 
despite tough border stance
by David M. Drucker
washingtonexaminer.com } ~ President Trump is poised to launch his 2020 reelection as popular with Hispanic voters as other Republicans... bucking predictions that provocative nationalist rhetoric and hard-line border policies would crater his support with this critical bloc. When Trump, four years ago Saturday, descended the escalator to the lobby of his iconic New York skyscraper and announced his first campaign, he riffed that Mexicans "with lots of problems," including rapists, were crossing the southern border. Many Republicans, establishment and otherwise, were mortified. They fretted that nominating Trump, never mind electing him, would permanently doom the GOP with Hispanics. It hasn’t worked out that way. Available polling consistently shows Hispanic support for the president at around 30% — about the same as it has been for many Republican politicians post-George W. Bush and pre-Trump. Indeed, Some party insiders focused on improving Hispanic support for the GOP now contend that he has room to grow with this cohort in next election. “He starts in a much better place for reelection than when he launched his 2016 campaign,” said Daniel Garza, a Bush administration veteran who runs the Libre Initiative, a Koch network group that encourages Hispanics to embrace conservative policies. “One would think immigration would be a major anchor for him, but he’s turned it into at least a push,” he said, suggesting his policies would neither harm nor help the president. That’s quite a turnabout for Garza. Here is what he told the Washington Examiner about Trump in August 2015: “His positions are indefensible. I would actually rise up against him.” In 2016, Trump captured 28% of the Hispanic vote, according to national exit polls. That was virtually identical to the 27% of Hispanics that Republican nominee Mitt Romney won four years earlier. In the midterm elections, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, garnered  35% of the Hispanic vote, according to statewide exit polling. That figure was in line with how Republicans have performed in Texas recently...

Golden State' Offers Free Health Care 
for Illegals
Arnold Ahlert:  What does one do when one’s state is overwhelmed by homelessness, to the point where one of its largest cities is forced to hire a “poop patrol” to  remove piles of human waste from its streets? If you’re California Gov. scumbag-Gavin Newsom and the Democrat-controlled state legislature, you double-down: California will become the first state in the nation to offer full health care benefits … to illegal aliens.
 

As part of a proposed $213 billion state budget, California will dedicate $98 million to make approximately 100,000 illegals from ages 19 to 25 eligible for Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program. The law would take effect in January 2020. It follows months of negotiations between scumbag-Newsom and the Legislature, which faces a June 15 deadline to pass the budget. If it does, that budget will begin taking effect in July.

“California believes that health is a fundamental right,” asserted state Sen. Holly Mitchell, a Democrat from Los Angeles who led the budget negotiations. Anthony Wright, executive director of advocacy group Health Access, agrees. “While it’s not all we sought, it will provide a real tangible difference for people, especially for those around and below poverty and for middle income families who don’t get any help under the federal law,” he said.

To help pay for it, California will begin fining citizens who don’t have health insurance — as in reviving the individual mandate penalty that existed under scumbag/liar-nObamaCare. That mandate was eliminated by the Republican-controlled Congress in 2017, when they overhauled the tax code. Lawmakers insist the mandate will fund insurance-premium subsidies for middle-income Californians, but they still added another $450 million over three years to the subsidy pie, because some of those lawmakers argued the mandate alone wouldn’t make health insurance affordable.

That the individual mandate, along with the rest of scumbag/liar-nObamaCare’s anti-free-market penalties and regulations drove insurance premiums through the roof? Progressives never let basic economic realities — or their wholly owned failures — get in the way of “compassion.”

Yet their compassion is rather suspect. scumbag-Newsom rejected a plan proposed by the state Senate to cover illegals 65 and older, because it would have been unaffordable.

The California Immigrant Policy Center wasn’t pleased. “The exclusion of undocumented elders from the same health care their U.S. citizen neighbors are eligible for means beloved community members will suffer and die from treatable conditions,” the advocacy group declared in a statement.

By contrast, Wright remained optimistic, tweeting, “We will continue to pursue steps towards the Governor’s & Legislature’s shared goal of getting to universal coverage in the next few years.”

Really? In 2017, the state’s Senate Appropriations Committee analysis concluded it would cost $400 billion — as in nearly twice the state’s currently proposed budget — to provide single-payer coverage. The state’s share of that cost was pegged at approximately $200 billion, based on the assumption it would retain the existing $200 billion in local, state, and federal funding it was receiving. And like this latest gambit, it would have included coverage of illegal aliens.

Not everyone is on board with this latest effort. As the Associated Press noted, the Republicans on the legislative committee “voted against the proposal, arguing it was not fair to give health benefits to people who are in the country illegally while taxing people who are here legally for not purchasing health insurance.”

Yet in a de facto one-party state like California, Republicans are virtually irrelevant.

Washington, DC? One suspects the Trump administration, already trying to stem the flood illegals pouring into this nation, would hardly be willing to fully fund a plan that further incentivizes them to do so.

Regardless, it seems progressives who run California are incapable of understanding the implications of such incentivization. Columnist Monica Showalter is not. “As if that $98 million is really going to cover [the plan’s costs] as migrants from Central America and beyond surge into the U.S. in record numbers, and five million from Latin America alone [are] planning to enter the U.S. with or without papers,” she writes. “California, remember, was quite convinced $39 billion would cover the cost of its famed bullet train up and down the state in 2008. The price tag now, with just a tiny portion of it out in the Central Valley to be built? $98 billion.”

California legislators also believe most people won’t see the political gamesmanship in play here. Columnist Sammy Caiola gives one a hint. “In a pie chart of California’s undocumented population, seniors make up only a sliver,” he explains.

Yet as mentioned above, covering them would be unaffordable — because they need health care the most. By contrast, illegals between the ages of 19 and 25, like their American counterparts, are the demographic that needs health care the least.

In other words, this effort reeks of political opportunism, based on three ideas. One, it is far more likely young illegals will live long enough to get some sort of “pathway to citizenship” or amnesty than older, or elderly, illegals. Two, providing them with “free” health insurance grooms them to embrace socialism.

Number three? “In a stance to distance itself from President Trump’s administration, California is set to become the first state in the country to pay for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to have full health benefits,” Fox News reports. “The move continues to stake California’s position as a bulwark against the policies of Republican President Donald Trump,” the Huffington Post echoed.

In other words, California Democrats are determined to make their state the epicenter of “The Resistance.”

At what price? As Showalter notes, California’s current illegal population “stands at a quarter of the nation’s count.”

After this bill passes? Maybe the question to ask is not whether California will be the first state in the nation to brazenly reward wholesale law-breaking at the expense of its own citizens, but whether it will be the first state in the nation where the illegal population ultimately  exceeds the number of citizens.

Such a scenario may not be that far off. According to a survey by Edelman Intelligence, 53% of Californians are already considering moving out, due to the state’s steadily increasing cost of living. For the Millennial generation, the number jumps to 63%.

“There have been other signs of the California exodus,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported last February. “In December, it was revealed that one of the most frequently Googled questions in California last year was ‘Should I move out?’”

After this bill passes, it might be more apropos to wonder how many illegals will be asking themselves “how soon can I move in?”

Maybe that question has already been answered. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection website reveals that family unit apprehensions at the state’s San Diego and El Centro border sectors have seen a staggering 611% and 345% increase, respectively.

How many others slipped through? Moreover, what will California do if 100,000 eligible illegals becomes 200,000? Or 300,000?

Only a Democrat Party dedicated to the “fundamental transformation of the United States” knows for sure.  ~The Patriot Post

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
