Democrats in Freefall – 
Congress Collapses – Chaos Ensues
by sundance
theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ What an absolute hot mess today in congress. A review begins with a reminder of the manufactured OrangeManBad outrage du jour. Obviously a cartoon is needed... As typical in an era where outrage is generally promoted to the level of Moonbat crazy, the circle of stupid was fueled by the media, who fired-up the politicians…who fired-up the outrage protestations…who fueled the media…and thus the circle of stupid continued. All the way to liar-Nancy Pulosi dropping all Speaker pretense of actual legislation, and instead choosing to bring a resolution to the House floor to advance Muh “racist” OrangeManBad. The debt ceiling needs to be raised. Spending appropriations bills need to be resolved. Immigration laws need to be fixed. The border is in crisis. Infrastructure spending needs to be resolved. The USMCA needs to be ratified. Forget all those issues that matter…. what does House Speaker liar-Nancy Pulosi do? Why, stop everything so she can advance a resolution to prove her squad doesn’t like President Trump...  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/07/16/democrats-in-freefa...

President Trump Modifies Asylum Rules
By Ronn Blitzer and Judson Berger  
foxnews.com } ~ The Trump administration on Monday announced a sweeping new policy tightening restrictions for asylum seekers... in a move that could drastically reduce the number of Central American migrants eligible to enter the United States in this way. The new rule, published in the Federal Register, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey. In most cases, only if that application is denied would they then be able to seek asylum in the United States. “Ultimately, today’s action will reduce the overwhelming burdens on our domestic system caused by asylum-seekers failing to seek urgent protection in the first available country, economic migrants lacking a legitimate fear of persecution, and the transnational criminal organizations, traffickers, and smugglers exploiting our system for profits,” Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan said in a statement, describing the “targeted changes” as critical. […] The latest change is meant to crack down on asylum seekers coming to the U.S. more for economic reasons than to escape persecution in their home countries. The new policy does include a couple other exceptions, mainly for certain victims of human trafficking.  Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement that the change would curb “forum shopping by economic migrants and those who seek to exploit our asylum system to obtain entry to the United States—while ensuring that no one is removed from the United States who is more likely than not to be tortured or persecuted on account of a protected ground.” ...

F-35 Program Leadership Changes 
as Turkey’s Future in Program Uncertain
By Ben Werner
news.usni.org } ~ The F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter program’s civilian and military management are in the midst of a changeover just as government officials from the U.S. and partner countries are considering ejecting Turkey... from involvement in the aircraft’s manufacture and deployment. Last week, Air Force Lt. Gen. Eric Fick relieved Vice Adm. Mat Winter as the F-35 program manager. With the program manager position switching from the Navy to the Air Force, the F-35 program’s civilian service acquisition executive also switched from the Air Force to the Navy. James Geurts, assistant secretary of the Navy for research, development and acquisition, is now overseeing the program. “I look forward to taking an active role as the service acquisition executive for the F-35 and working with Eric and his team, those in the department, international partners and Congress to deliver and sustain this lethal capability our military needs to compete and win,” Geurts said in a statement. Occurring as the Navy and Air Force swapped F-35 program leadership roles, Turkey, an F-35 program partner since its start in 1999, received its first shipments of a Russian-made air S-400 defense system. Pentagon officials and lawmakers have for months tried persuading Turkey against purchasing the Russian system, which they believe could be used to probe the stealthy F-35 aircraft for weaknesses and share this information with military planners in Moscow. The House and Senate versions of the Fiscal Year 2020 National Defense Authorization Act both included language prohibiting the transfer of F-35 aircraft to Turkey if the S-400 sale went through. Ultimately, Turkey planned to buy 100 F-35 aircraft, according to Lockheed Martin. On Friday, acting Secretary of Defense Mark Esper briefly commented on the Turkish F-35 issue while greeting Uzbekistan’s Minister of Defense Bakhodir Kurbanov at the Pentagon Friday morning...

New Evidence: U.N. Connected to 
World Vision Terror Finance Scandal
by Cliff Smith and Sam Westrop
meforum.org } ~ U.S. Treasury Department documents obtained by the Middle East Forum through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request shed new light on the terror-finance scandal that first erupted last year... concerning the scumbag/liar-nObama-era United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the International evangelical aid charity, World Vision. These new documents reveal that not only was World Vision funding the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA), a U.S. designated charity linked to Osama Bin Laden based in Sudan, with grants from USAID, but also from the United Nations (U.N.). The documents also disclose that once World Vision's relationship with ISRA was exposed by a whistleblower from the Swiss-based intergovernmental organization, International Organization for Migration (IOM), World Vision mounted a full-court press to strongarm the Treasury Department into allowing the relationship to continue unabated. This effort involved high-ranking members of Congress, who advocated for World Vision, as well as threats of lawsuits aimed at the scumbag/liar-nObama Administration's Treasury Department. When this scandal first broke last year, all that was known was that in 2014, World Vision had subcontracted charitable work in the hotly-contested Blue Nile region of Sudan to ISRA, which was designed as a terrorist entity in 2004 for giving millions of dollars to Osama Bin Laden and raising funds for Hamas suicide bombings in 2003. Initially, this arrangement appeared to be a one-time event. But it soon emerged that World Vision had "prior work experience" with ISRA and had used "other funding streams," to fund projects with the terror charity. Previously, the source of these revenue streams was unknown. But according to a May 2015 "Case Summary," written by U.S. Treasury officials, World Vision gave ISRA $323,928 for the controversial project paid for by USAID, Irish Aid and the U.N, with the U.N. likely paying the lion's share. Unfortunately, the U.N.'s relationship with ISRA is not entirely new. ISRA, also known as the Islamic African Relief Agency, previously enjoyed "consultative status" at the U.N. It lost this status in 2006 after the United States highlighted its links to Al Qaeda. Since then, ISRA has repeatedly attempted to regain  consultative status – a request repeatedly deferred because of unanswered U.S. government questions about ISRA's activities. The U.N. has regularly employed ISRA as a partner over the last decade. In 2013, it listed ISRA as a participant in its "Work Plan" for Sudan. And in 2014, the U.N. partnered  with ISRA and the Sudanese government on three projects in West Darfur. That the U.N, which was aware of its member-states' concerns that ISRA was a terror financing organization, also specifically partnered with World Vision to fund ISRA, was previously unknown...

worthless-Omar Blames American Foreign Policy 
for Immigration Crisis, But Loves America 
More Than You Do
by Cameron Cawthorne
freebeacon.com } ~ Rep. worthless-Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) on Saturday evening blamed American foreign policy for the immigration crisis... despite claiming earlier in the day she loves the United States more than American-born citizens. worthless-Omar, who has a history  of making anti-Semitic remarks, appeared on MSNBC's Politics Nation with scumbag-Al Sharpton, who also has his own history of being anti-Semitic. scumbag-Sharpton led a violent 1991 riot in Crown Heights, a Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, which resulted in 183 people being injured and Australian University academic Yankel Rosenbaum being murdered. scumbag-Sharpton also negatively referred to Jews as "diamond dealers." scumbag-Sharpton asked worthless-Omar about the Democratic feud between Speaker of the House liar-Nancy Pulosi (D., Calif.) and "the squad," which includes worthless-Omar and three other freshman House Democrats who have been outspoken about their opposition to the immigration crisis at the border and have called for ICE to be abolished. "Everybody wants to make this personal. This isn't personal for me. You know, I understand my role. My colleagues understand their role. We're there to take the tough votes to make sure that our values are intact in the policies that we push for. We have a responsibility to take a vote on behalf of the constituents that send us to Washington and leadership has a responsibility to make sure they wrangle the members of Congress to push forth the policies that they're putting forth, so everybody has a role. Everybody has a lane." Later in the interview, worthless-Omar blamed U.S. foreign policy  for the immigration crisis. "This is what this administration and its ideology has produced. Also generations of not attending to a foreign policy that is just in regards to Northern Triangle has created this mass migration that we are dealing with today," worthless-Omar said... She has no knowledge of history on this issue.

IKAR’s Safe Parking Program for the Homeless
By ESTHER D. KUSTANOWITZ
jewishjournal.com } ~ Last December, IKAR became the first Jewish community organization to participate in Safe Parking LA (SPLA), a nonprofit initiative that provides those living in their cars with a safe place to park overnight... with access to a bathroom, water and electricity. It currently provides 10 spaces in its building’s parking lot on La Cienega Boulevard. IKAR also raised over $10,000 to fund month-to-month memberships at a local 24-hour health club for Safe Parking guests to have access to hot showers. Most nights, the spaces are used by Safe Parking “guests” who are “assigned to the IKAR lot for the period of time they need to be until they find housing or make some other decision, like leaving town,” said Brooke Wirtschafter, IKAR’s director of community organizing.  According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority’s (LAHSA) 2018 Homeless Count, 15,749 people were living in cars, vans and RVs/campers in Los Angeles County. In 2019, that number was 16,528 — a 5% increase. Safe Parking guests are often taking care of disabled or sick family members, suffering trauma from job loss, divorce, domestic violence or are experiencing “a whole range of human suffering that leads them to this space,” Wirtschafter said. “You wouldn’t know if you passed them on the street. They’re wearing clean clothes; some have jobs. They could be serving you coffee or driving your Uber. … It’s an opportunity for us to really think about why we have this crisis of homelessness and what we are called to do about it.”  Overall, homelessness numbers are up. According to this year’s count, 58,936 people were listed as homeless in L.A. County — an increase of 12% from 2018. And in the city of Los Angeles, that number is 36,300 — a rise of 16% since last year. IKAR is doing its part by funding Safe Parking LA through its own fundraising, Wirtschafter said, with a $500 per month stipend from SPLA. Students in IKAR’s after-school Hebrew school Limudim program provided shower supplies for Safe Parking guests, and IKAR holds a catered kosher vegetarian dinner for them paid for by the stipend, along with IKAR community members twice a month. Over time, Wirtschafter predicted, many IKAR members will attend dinners or otherwise connect respectfully with Safe Parking guests...

liar-Pulosi vs. commie-AOC: It's a Beautiful Thing

David Limbaugh
 

I’ve often wondered whether the internal contradictions of leftist ideology would eventually cause leftists to turn on one another. Perhaps we’re catching a glimpse of that in the feud between liar-Nancy Pulosi and the commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quartet.

Everything about modern leftist ideology is extreme. It is extreme in substance, and its practitioners are self-absorbed, sanctimonious, uncompromising and often irrational. Intersectionality zealots are disciplining white feminists for their selfish advocacy. Biological males are dominating female athletic events courtesy of the transgender movement. Leftists of color and female gender are dissing old white men despite the men’s long records of dedication to the sacred cause of progressivism. Some women of color are being told they are not black enough to lead the cause. And what about poor PETA? Where does that hapless group fit into this kaleidoscope of insanity these days?

After Speaker liar-Pulosi led Congress in passing a border-funding bill over the opposition of Reps. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, worthless-Ilhan Omar, worthless-Rashida Tlaib and worthless-Ayanna Pressley, liar-Pulosi discussed the bill with The New York Times. “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” she said, referring to the leftist upstarts. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

Uh-oh! That wasn’t very nice — especially not for a nice liberal.

commie-AOC is not known for her humility or obedience, and she did not take that slight sitting down. “When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” commie-AOC said. “But the persistent singling out … it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful … the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”

There you go. To invoke a very cliched cliche, “Live by the sword. Die by the sword.” Not to defend the indefensible commie-AOC, but I wonder how liar-Pulosi feels getting some of that race baiting thrown back in her face? You will recall that not long ago, she despicably said that President Trump wanted to “make America white again.” To paraphrase Doc Holliday in “Tombstone,” “Why, liar-Nancy, what an ugly thing to say. I abhor ugliness.”

But seriously, commie-AOC? Or, to put it more in your vernacular: Are you being serious right now? How dare you accuse the Snow White-ish progressive icon liar-Nancy Pulosi of racism?

liar-Nancy is getting a taste of her own medicine here. If she were capable of learning a lesson, this is what it would be: The leftist ideologies of intersectionality, critical race theory, whiteness studies and miscellaneous other faculty-lounge thought experiments will tell you that you — a white lady — no matter how dedicated you’ve been to the cause, are not capable of adequately representing it because your whiteness, and even female gender, don’t afford you the requisite life experience to fully get it.

liar-Nancy, and so many progressives, use racial smears against conservatives to neuter them — not because they believe they’re racists. They know better. It’s simply a cynical power play, and it always has been.

While it is delicious to see this tactic thrown back in liar-Pulosi’s laughing face by one with stronger intersectionality credentials, let us not allow ourselves the luxury of sanguinity over this blissful moment. In the long run, it won’t matter much in the scheme of things.

Don’t be fooled. This is not really a battle over ideology. liar-Nancy Pulosi and the establishment wing of the Democratic Party are not — let me repeat, they are not — moderates. These people all embrace varying degrees of an extreme progressive agenda including radical environmentalism; socialized medicine; socialism writ large, evisceration of gun rights; abortion on demand; health care and welfare for illegal immigrants; open borders; confiscatory personal- and corporate-income tax hikes; softness on Iran and terrorism; leftist judicial activism; wholesale end runs around the Constitution to secure their power, such as abolishing the Electoral College and allowing 16-year-olds and felons to vote; and so much more.

Yes, commie-AOC’s Four Horsemen of the Apocaleft are more radical, but if left to their own menacing devices, liar-Pulosi and Co. are plenty radical enough to complete scumbag/liar-nObama’s scheme to fundamentally transform the nation. The significant difference between the two groups is that liar-Pulosi’s has enough sense and savvy to pretend to be more moderate to make itself more electable. commie-AOC et al. are just too idealistic (though it pains me to associate their toxic views with any sort of idealism) to rein themselves in, even for pragmatic purposes.

What we’re seeing is simply a turf battle for control of the party. It’s about power. Yes, liar-Pulosi is the alpha, but commie-AOC, despite her reliable buffoonery, is a force to be reckoned with, if for no other reason than she represents the future of her insane party. She is the product of decades of cultural indoctrination, and she is but one of millions of young radical leftists eager to accelerate the end of America as founded. Pelosi is fighting back because she has to, but in the end, they will have to make peace, or at least pretend to, going into the election season.

ALERT ALERT

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
