When Democrats Wanted a Border Wall to Stop Illegal Aliens (Video)

Posted by FactReal on January 9, 2019

VIDEO: WHEN DEMS AGREED WITH TRUMP
Few years ago, Democrats championed and voted for a border wall to stop illegal aliens. Today, Democrats are calling the border wall “immoral.”

Having a border wall is common sense, because, as Barack Obama said in 2006, “we cannot allow people to pour into the U.S. undetected, undocumented, and unchecked.”
It’s time to stop playing games. Stop politicizing our national security, especially now that we are being invaded.

This is not Trump’s Wall; it is the American Border Wall to protect Americans!

Video:
Democrats then and now:

Hillary Clinton on Nov. 9, 2015: [Video mark 0:41]
“I voted numerous times, when I was a senator, to spent money to build a in barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in.”

Chuck Schumer on June 24, 2009: [1:02]
“People who entered the United States without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the U.S. legally.”

Barack Obama on April 3, 2006: [1:19]
“Those who enter our country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law. And because we live in the age where terrorists are challenging our borders, we cannot allow people to pour into the U.S. undetected, undocumented, and unchecked.”

Nancy Pelosi on June 29, 2006: [1:52]
“All of us agree that we need to have comprehensive, bipartisan immigration reform. That can only begin with strong border control — we must have that — we must control our border.”

New Muslim Democrat Rep. on Trump: We are gonna Impeach the Motherf****r (Videos)

Posted by FactReal on January 4, 2019

MORE “LOVE” FROM THE LEFT
This time the “love” came from new Muslim Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib who called yesterday for the impeachment of Trump by saying: “We’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er.’”

Via ABC News: (1/4/2019)

Freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is not apologizing for profane comments she made Thursday about impeaching President Donald Trump.

Tlaib, who was sworn in as Michigan’s representative from the 13th Congressional District on Thursday, was speaking at an event for progressive advocacy group MoveOn.org when she relayed a conversation with her son to the crowd: “And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won, bullies don’t win,’ and I said, ‘Baby they don’t,’ because we’re gonna go in and impeach the motherf—–.”

The media celebrated Rashida Tlaib making “history”:
Via the Detroit Free Pres: “Tlaib makes history but without Jefferson’s Koran” (1/3/2019)

Tlaib, D-Detroit, was sworn in with the rest of her class, taking a spot formerly held by Rep. John Conyers, but at her ceremonial swearing-in, she decided against using Thomas Jefferson’s copy of the Koran
“I’m going to use my own,” said Tlaib, who becomes the first Palestinian-American woman and one of the first two Muslim women, along with Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar, to be sworn into Congress. She spoke just before heading into the ceremonial swearing-in with new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The Free Press had earlier reported on Tlaib considering using the Jefferson text, a 1734 translation of the Koran into English that resides in the Library of Congress. But Tlaib said her earlier decision was never meant to be final and that she changed her mind some time ago.

“Why uplift someone else?” she said. “It’s starting a new era in social justice. … It just occurred to me: Why am I not using my own?”

For the record, Tlaib did wear a traditional Palestinian thobe, or dress, which her mother — who was there for the swearing-in — made for her, as she was sworn in.

Via CNN: Rashida Tlaib made history with her swearing-in. Here’s what to know about the first Palestinian-American woman to serve in Congress (1/3/2019)

During her campaign, Tlaib — a member of the Democratic Socialists of America — embraced progressive ideas like Medicare-for-all, a $15 dollar minimum wage and debt-free college as well as calls to abolish ICE and impeach the President. Just last month, she tweeted, “Can we please start the impeachment process now?”

When the new Congress gets underway, Tlaib will have a high-profile platform on Capitol Hill to confront the President and try to shape the agenda of the new House Democratic majority. The question now is what will she do when she gets to Washington?

Tlaib has broken barriers and glass ceilings before
The 42-year old has had “first” status before. She is the first of 14 children born to Palestinian immigrant parents and the first in her family to graduate from high school as well as college. She was also the first Muslim woman to serve in the Michigan state legislature.
“When I won it was just a moment of light in this time that was pretty dark for a lot of us,” Tlaib said, reflecting on her election to Congress.

NOTES TO PONDER:
– How many white Americans/Christians are being elected in Muslim countries?
– Why the Left worries so much in breaking the record (“the first in U.S. history”) and not in doing what is right (i.e., keeping America free and prosper)?

Democrat Hank Johnson: Trump Followers are Older, Less Educated, and They are Dying Early [Video]

Posted by FactReal on January 3, 2019

IS THIS HOW DEMOCRATS WILL UNITE AMERICANS?
Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson thought it was a great idea to start the year by offending almost 50% of American voters while addressing parishioners at the Friendship Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, this past Tuesday:

Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson (1/1/2019):

Americans elected an authoritarian, an anti-immigrant, racist strongman to the nation’s highest office.

Donald Trump and his ‘Make America Great Again’ followers who want to return American back to a time where white men and white privilege were unchallenged, and where minorities and women were in their place.

These folks now control the highest office of the land. Donald Trump supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early. Their life spans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair.

Johnson went on to compare Trump to Hitler who, as we all know, was responsible for killing 6 million Jews. (How many people has Trump killed?)
[Video mark: ~5:30]

NOTES TO PONDER:
– Mr. Johnson is another Democrat who ignores Nazis were socialists.
– Mr. Johnson is another Democrat who ignores the racist history of the Democrat Party.
– In 2016, Hank Johnson compared Jewish Israeli settlers to termites.
– In 2010, Hank Johnson voiced fears that the island of Guam would tip over and capsize due to overpopulation:

Scot-free? Brenda Snipes Illegalities and Shenanigans (LIST)

Posted by FactReal on November 20, 2018

SHOULD SNIPES GET OFF SCOT-FREE?
Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes is a prime example of public officials being above the law. Instead of being punished by law, they are remunerated with high salaries and lifetime pensions paid by taxpayers.

Now that Brenda Snipes has resigned, let’s remember her record and see if she deserves a second pension paid by taxpayers (details under “SNIPES’ PENSION & HIGH SALARY”):

BRENDA SNIPES’ RECORD (PARTIAL)
2002: At least 268 absentee ballots were misplaced during the September 2002 primary. (Sun Sentinel, October 28, 2004)

2004: Some 58,000 mail-in ballots were not delivered to voters, leaving election officials to scramble to send new ones. (Sun Sentinel, October 28, 2004)

2012: Snipe found nearly 1,000 uncounted ballots in a warehouse a week after the general election. (WSVN, Nov. 14, 2012)

2016: Snipes broke Florida law when she opened ballots in secret without the Canvassing Board review.[Court Order] (Politico, August 13, 2018)
[Nearly 180,000 mail-in votes cast were illegally counted. (Sunshine State News, November 7, 2016)]

2016: Snipes even admitted in court to misunderstanding the meaning of the word ‘canvass.’ (Sun Sentinel, August 13, 2018)

2016 election: A court ruled she had broken election law when she destroyed ballots 10 months earlier than required by federal law. (Sun Sentinel, May 14, 2018)
[The ballots were the subject of a public records lawsuit from Democrat Tim Canova who lost to Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.]

2016 primaries: Published election results before polls closed — a violation of election law. (Sun Sentinel, August 31, 2016)

2016: She left an amendment off some ballots. (Miami Herald, October 20, 2016)

2017: Snipes acknowledged in court that some non-citizens and felons have voted despite not being eligible (Sun Sentinel, July 31, 2017)

2018: Court found Snipes violated public records laws (Sun Sentinel, November 9, 2018)

and more.

PEOPLE ARRESTED FOR LESS:
Oregon City woman gets jail and $13k charge for filling in blank spots on two ballots (OregonLive, April 25, 2013)
Temporary elections worker Deanna Eileen Swenson pleaded guilty to altering two ballots — Class C felonies — and to one misdemeanor count of official misconduct.

Accepting terms of a plea bargain, Circuit Judge Susie L. Norby sentenced Swenson to 90 days in jail, followed by three years’ probation. She also ordered Swenson to pay a total of $500 in fines and to repay the Secretary of State’s Office $12,997 for the cost of investigating and prosecuting the case.

Norby also banned Swenson from working in future elections and ordered her to stay out of Clackamas County’s elections offices.

Two women arrested for voter fraud in Miami-Dade: (WSVN, Oct. 28, 2016)
– – Gladys Coego, a Miami-Dade elections worker, illegally marked ballots to favor Republican-in-Name-Only Raquel Regalado.
– – Tomika Curgil filled out voter registration forms to favor legalizing medical marijuana.
Deisy Penton de Cabrera arrested for having more than two ballots (NBC6-August 2, 2012)
Sergio Robaina arrested for touching more than 200 absentee ballots and illegally dropping them off for voters (ABC-Local10, August 12, 2012)

SNIPES’ PENSION & HIGH SALARY
Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes is a prime example of double dipping in the public trough, reported BrowardBeat.com.
– Snipes receives $4,336 monthly in state pension benefits from her time in the Broward school system.
– Snipes received a yearly salary of $178,865, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Glenna Milberg of WPLG Local 10 (Miami) tweeted the latest numbers:

#FloridaRecount machine recount results official and posted:

GOVERNOR RACE
The machine recount for the Governor race is also completed. Republican Ron DeSantis kept his lead at 0.41% over Gillum:
– DeSantis new numbers = 4,075,445
– Gillum new numbers = 4,041,762
So DeSantis leads Gillum by 33,683…that’s 0.41%. No manual recount required.
Republican Ron DeSantis is now Florida’s Governor-elect.

GovNoHandcount

BUT GILLUM STILL WANTS TO WIN
It seems Gillum might go to the courts. Remember, Democrat lawyer Marc Elias said, “We are here to win it.”
USA Today: With Florida recount over, Andrew Gillum’s last chance to become governor rests with the courts:

WASHINGTON – Andrew Gillum will have to rely on the courts if he has any chance to become Florida’s first black governor.

A recount of more than 8 million ballots that ended Thursday afternoon confirmed that Republican Ron DeSantis beat the Democratic Tallahassee mayor in the nationally watched race that galvanized progressives across the country.

[…]

But Gillum is not conceding. He and his supporters believe there is still a path to victory: lawsuits that could add more votes in support of him.

“A vote denied is justice denied — the State of Florida must count every legally cast vote,” Gillum said in a statement after the recount totals were released. “As today’s unofficial reports and recent court proceedings make clear, there are tens of thousands of votes that have yet to be counted. We plan to do all we can to ensure that every voice is heard in this process. Voters need to know that their decision to participate in this election, and every election, matters. It is not over until every legally casted vote is counted.”

The deadline for the recount was 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time Thursday but Palm Beach County, a Democratic stronghold, did not complete its recount. It was the only one of Florida’s 67 counties that failed to do so. A lawsuit filed by Democrats could find more votes for Gillum there, for example.
