commie-AOC's chief of staff comments
 just killed the Green New Deal
by Philip Klein
washingtonexaminer.com } ~ In fairness, the Green New Deal always read like socialist fanfic, so it's hard to argue that a totally unrealistic idea with narrow support could actually be "killed."... But whatever chance there was for Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's big initiative to win over skeptics went poof when her chief of staff said the quiet part out loud: the Green New Deal is not primarily about addressing the climate crisis, but about replacing America's capitalist economy with a more socialist one. A glowing Washington Post profile of commie-Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti opens with a meeting that he had with Sam Ricketts, the climate director for Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington, who launched a long-shot 2020 presidential bid centered around a sweeping climate change plan. The article reports: Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” The Green New Deal has always rested on deception. commie-Ocasio-Cortez and her backers have argued that we are facing catastrophic emergency and that if we don't act immediately the looming devastation will be unavoidable. But at the same time, the plan is a wish list of ideas that American socialists would be pushing regardless of the climate issue, and they are in no way necessary to address the global emergency: free college, more union jobs, free healthcare for all, economic security, and "guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States." The resolution on the Green New Deal, by the way, was co-sponsored by six 2020 presidential candidates: Sens. commie-Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, lowlife-Kamala Harris, Elizabeth dinky-Warren, scumbag liar-Cory Booker, and Amy Klobuchar. commie-Ocasio-Cortez and her allies are of course free to make the case for why the U.S. should move toward a socialist economy. But they don't get to use the pretext of a global emergency to do so. You can make a case that scientists have warned of disastrous consequences without action to curb carbon emissions, and try to shame those who are blocking action. But it's another thing to define "serious action on climate change" as requiring people to embrace commie-AOC's economic vision...  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/aocs-chief-of-staff-just...

County Clerk Sues New York Governor 
to Stop Illegal-Alien Drivers’ Licenses
By David Jaroslav
fairus.org } ~ On June 17, the so-called Green Light Bill, Assembly Bill (AB) 3675, passed the New York Legislature and was signed into law by Governor scumbag-Andrew Cuomo (D), authorizing drivers’ licenses for illegal aliens...  Even before then, numerous county clerks, county executives and other local officials across the Empire State had expressed their strong opposition and made clear they might sue to stop the law going into effect. Those lawsuits have now begun being filed, and more are likely soon. One of the most outspoken opponents of the bill has been Erie County Clerk Michael “Mickey” Kearns. In New York, many county clerks, particularly upstate, effectively act as agents for the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and are required to issue drivers licenses. But Kearns said repeatedly that he and his staff will not issue them to illegal aliens, because it “would result in higher local government costs and pose public safety and voter fraud threats.” As soon as the bill passed, he began preparing to sue to stop it. On July 8, Kearns made good on his promise and filed a federal lawsuit against scumbag-Cuomo, New York Attorney General (AG) Leticia James and DMV Commissioner Mark Schroeder, asking the court to declare the Green Light Bill unconstitutional and order that it not be enforced.  Kearns says he has "been adamant since Day 1 that my objection to issuing driver’s licenses to those unlawfully present in the United States is strongly rooted in the law," and is “willing to follow this all the way all the way to the Supreme Court." Kearns’s lawsuit argues that the Green Light Bill: Conflicts with the federal criminal law against concealing, shielding or harboring illegal aliens, Title 8 United States Code Section 1324. This means that following state law could, and likely would, require the clerk or his employees to commit federal crimes. Conflicts with the federal Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA) of 1986, which not only prohibits employing illegal aliens but “makes it illegal for employers to knowingly hire, recruit, refer, or continue to employ” them. The Green Light Bill is an obvious attempt to frustrate and interfere with Congress’s intent in passing this federal statute, “undermining the IRCA’s purpose and objectives.” Amounts to the state attempting to regulate immigration, a subject over which the U.S. Constitution grants Congress exclusive authority, and is therefore federally preempted under the Supremacy Clause. As Kearns notes in the suit, even Gov. scumbag-Cuomo admitted that defending the bill’s constitutionality “is going to be a difficult legal question.” More recently, the governor described the bill as “very questionable.”...  https://www.fairus.org/legislation/state-local-legislation/county-c...

CNN's David Gregory: Russia meddling 
happened on loose lips liar-Biden's watch
By Nick Givas 
foxnews.com } ~ CNN political analyst David Gregory called out presidential candidate loose lips liar-Joe Biden on "New Day" Monday for trying to coast into the presidency... and said Russian election meddling occurred under his watch. Co-host John Berman asked Gregory if loose lips liar-Biden was doing a good job handling the fallout from his past political decisions and public campaign trail gaffes, and Gregory said the former vice president was slipping. "loose lips liar-Biden hid out for a long time, trying to  cruise in this front-runner strategy which is (sic) never been a role that he has been in. No, I don’t think he looks really good right now," Gregory said. "I don’t think this is a huge issue. Because it’s not like these are revelations that’s showing you who he is when you thought he was somebody else. I think people know who loose lips liar-Biden is.""He looks out of touch. He looks older. He looks out of step with the times," he continued. "I don’t think there’s any good excuse for him not being ready for that first debate on these issues. Are you kidding? lowlife-Kamala Harris previewed all this stuff -- she criticized him on this before. Now he says he was unprepared? That’s just really bad. And there’s a lot of good, strong, experienced people who know better, who are around him. But again, I think people know who he is." Gregory, who previously covered the White House and moderated "Meet the Press" for NBC, said loose lips liar-Biden will continue to face hurdles on his road to the nomination and accused him of shirking his responsibility as the former vice president, and not taking ownership of Russia's interference in the 2016 election."There’s going to be other tests down the line here," he said. "And the other piece of this, too, when he said ... the Russian interference, it didn’t happen on our watch -- when that's exactly whose watch it happened on -- it just shows, and I've seen this first hand -- when he gets into interviews and gets going, he can make lots of mistakes. And I think we may have just seen the beginning of it."

State AG Demands Police Refuse To 
Help ICE, Now Cops Want Him Gone
By RYAN LEDENDECKER  
westernjournal.com } ~ The New Jersey Attorney General’s office, headed by Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, sent strongly-worded letters to local sheriffs on Tuesday... saying they must request permission to work with United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement. If they fail to do so, legal action will be taken against their respective police departments, according to WHYY-FM. This harsh letter from Grewal comes after it was discovered that some sheriffs were renewing agreements with ICE without informing the New Jersey Attorney General’s office. Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden responded to Grewal’s latest letter, saying that he is “hopeful” the state will allow its agreement with ICE to stand, as his county jail’s staff often has to take on the responsibility of federal immigration officers. “Cooperation from the federal, state and local level is essential when protecting the public and ensuring that dangerous, undocumented immigrants are not released from jail in order to maintain the safety of our communities,” said Golden in a July 9 letter. Golden’s statement also notes that 40 out of nearly 8,000 inmates processed at the county jail last year were discovered to be illegal aliens — these undocumented individuals were promptly turned over to ICE, according to WHYY-FM. In addition, Grewal’s crusade against ICE is being met with fierce criticism by the entire law enforcement community, with one GOP candidate running for Middlesex sheriff lashing out in a blistering, now-deleted Facebook post, Insider NJ reported. Anthony Gallo, a former auxiliary officer and NRA-certified  firearms instructor, called for the arrest of Grewal on Facebook, saying the attorney general has been “harboring ‘criminal’ illegal aliens.” Gallo continued, expressing surprise at the fact that 19 of 21 New Jersey counties “have been releasing these ‘Criminals’ into our backyards with our Families. ”He then took a swipe at his opponent, demanding Middlesex County Sheriff Mildred Scott be removed as well, claiming he “listens to this Criminal Attorney General and not the People of Middlesex County.” Gallo finished his passionate rant by saying that politicians should hold no sway over the demands of sitting sheriffs and people should go to the ballot box if they want a change in local law enforcement. The entire debacle began after the progressive attorney general said late last year that his administration is “issuing new rules that draw a bright line between federal civil immigration authorities on the one hand, and state and local law enforcement officers on the other.”...

Holocaust 'Neutrality' Equals 
Educational Bankruptcy
Arnold Ahlert:  Apparently some well-deserved light and heat was too much for the Palm Beach County School District to resist. The firestorm generated by Spanish River Community High School principal William Latson’s refusal to acknowledge that the Holocaust actually happened — because being a school employee requires him to remain “politically neutral” — could no longer be swept under the rug. On Monday, the school district announced that Latson is being reassigned “out of an abundance of concern and respect for the students and staff of Spanish River Community High School.”
 

Sounds good, but the timeline reveals otherwise. That’s because the email exchange on the subject between a concerned parent and Latson took place more than a year ago. As the Palm Beach Post explains, a concerned mother wanted “to make sure that her child’s school was making Holocaust education a ‘priority.’ The response she received five days later, in April 2018, was anything but routine.”

That’s because while Latson assured her that the school had “a variety of activities” for Holocaust education, those lessons are “not forced upon individuals as we all have the same rights but not all the same beliefs.”

The mother, who didn’t want to be named to protect her child’s identity, was taken aback. But she gave Latson the benefit of the doubt, hoping he had expressed himself poorly. She wrote another email asking him to clarify his position. “The Holocaust is a factual, historical event,” she wrote. “It is not a right or a belief.”

Much to her shock, Latson dug himself a deeper hole in an email dated April 18, 2018:

The clarification is that the Holocaust happened and you have your thoughts but we are a public school and not all of our parents have the same beliefs so they will react differently, my thoughts or beliefs have nothing to do with this because I am a public servant… I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual history event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee… I do the same with information about slavery…

Ordinarily, the astounding admission that reality itself is being held hostage to political sensibilities would been seen as the wholesale corruption of a public school’s core mission it truly is. But as Latson reveals, we are not living in ordinary times. Much of the American Left embraces “my truth,” as well as the “tailoring” of history, most of which is about making sure students understand that America is an inherently flawed nation requiring fundamental transformation.

This has been going on for decades, yet somehow people remain surprised. “It would be shocking anywhere in the United States for a public high school principal to embrace Holocaust denial, but for it to happen in a majority-Jewish city in the most heavily-Jewish county in the country defies belief,” writes columnist Thomas Lifson. “Yet, it not only happened in Boca Raton, Florida, and it took over a year of discussion for the principal to back down and apologize for embracing a crackpot belief that is favored by Jew-haters of all stripes, from the mullahs of Iran to the neo-Nazis of Europe and America.”

The principal? If anyone thinks Latson was acting alone, think again. After the email exchange, the mother pushed for a face-to-face meeting. In May of 2018 Latson obliged, and she, along with a second concerned mother, met with Latson and a group of school-district administrators who supervise him. Latson presented them with a list of educational efforts undertaken at Spanish River HS with regard to Holocaust. Yet the mother told Latson her child had informed her many of those efforts never reached the classroom. And yet again during the meeting, Latson refused to state the Holocaust was an actual event.

His position angered the second mother. “I came out of there feeling so much worse,” she said. “How do you pick and choose history?”

One PC-filtered choice after another, while hiding from accountability for more than a year, that’s how.

In a follow-up meeting with district administrators, the mother proposed two changes. One was to have all 10th-grade English students read Night, Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel’s Holocaust memoir. Second, she proposed convening assemblies about the Holocaust for every grade level. According to the mother, Latson agreed to the first request, and district administrators agreed to second — but failed to follow through. Deputy Schools Superintendent Keith Oswald said the assemblies weren’t put in place this past year due to time constraints, but they will take place in the upcoming one.

Regardless, Latson is out. “Mr. Latson made a grave error in judgment in the verbiage he wrote,” a school district spokesperson stated. “In addition to being offensive, the principal’s statement is not supported by either the School District Administration or the School Board.”

Really? As Oswald revealed, administrators counseled Latson about the impropriety of his emails, but he was not formally disciplined. And as revealed in the opening paragraph, Latson still hasn’t been fired, but rather reassigned, despite several petitions, including one that garnered more than 6,000 signatures, asking the School Board to fire him.

Oswald insisted Latson shouldn’t be judged solely by a couple of emails. “It was a hastily, poorly written email that he apologized for,” Oswald declared. “That’s some of the challenge that we face when we email back and forth instead of picking up the phone.”

How about the face-to-face meeting where he ostensibly remained steadfast, Mr. Oswald?

School Board Chairman Frank Barbieri Jr. was equally duplicitous, issuing a statement affirming the school district’s commitment to Holocaust education, while insisting school leaders are reviewing the incident. “As Board Chairman, I assure you that this situation is being investigated at the highest levels of the District Administration,” he wrote.

Since when? Has there been a 14-month investigation dating back to the original exchange, or a hastily convened one, now that the national spotlight has been turned on a county where a number of Holocaust survivors and their descendants reside?

“We have let our public education fall into the hands of people with frightening agendas,” Lifson asserts.

It is far, far worse than that. Decent Americans are standing by while the Left is corrupting our education system to the point where people like William Latson — and his enablers — can insulate themselves from genuine accountability, shielded by school unions and their bureaucratic and legislative collaborators.

Moreover, as the crackpot ideas now openly espoused by Democrat candidates for president reveal, at least one of our two major political parties believe the entire edifice of American exceptionalism can be swept aside — by an electoral majority. That is only possible if the leftist indoctrination that passes for education has reached critical mass.

Once again: The Senate should initiate nationally televised hearings on the state of American schooling. When a “Holocaust-neutral” principal in a large Jewish community can remain on the payroll, we are in uncharted waters — for a constitutional republic.

For a history-eliminating totalitarian gulag? Not so much.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
