Gay Buttigieg: Supporting Trump ‘Is Supporting Racism’; Beto’s Website: ‘The President of the United States of America Is a White Supremacist’

By Breitbart. . .Univision Anchor Jorge Ramos asked, “Eight out of 10 Latinos in Texas fear another mass shooting targeted them. This is according to a new Univision pool. President Trump has called Mexican immigrants rapists and killers, tried to ban Muslims from entering this country, separated children from their parents. He supporters have chanted ‘build a wall’ and ‘send her back.’ Do you think people who support President Trump and his immigration policies are racist?

Buttigieg said, “Anyone who supports this is supporting racism.” (Read more from “Gay Buttigieg: Supporting Trump ‘Is Supporting Racism’” HERE)

Beto’s Website: ‘The President of the United States of America Is a White Supremacist’

By The Blaze. Struggling Democratic presidential candidate and former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke is getting desperate in his quest to appeal to the far-left base, even declaring on his campaign website Thursday night: “The president of the United States of America is a white supremacist.” . . .

O’Rourke is seeking to breathe life into his campaign amid consistently weak polling performances, and apparently used the occasion of the third Democratic presidential primary debate to go for broke. . .

But as the debate wore on, pundits on the Twittersphere discovered that O’Rourke’s campaign website had also been updated for debate night.

“Here’s proof,” the site says, citing dozens of “examples.” The first was reportedly pulled from the El Paso Times, and reads, “Trump falsely claimed that El Paso, one of America’s safest cities, had ‘extremely high rates of violent crime’ before fences were built.”

Another example quoted USA Today as reporting that “Trump launched his campaign calling immigrants ‘rapists’ and criminals.” A third excerpt was from CNN, and read, “Trump said there is an ‘infestation’ of gangs in our country.” (Read more from “Beto’s Website: ‘The President of the United States of America Is a White Supremacist'” HERE)

Parkland Father Exposes How Killer Was Enabled by Obama’s School-Leniency Policies

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter, Meadow, was a victim of the Parkland massacre that left 17 dead, is on a mission to make sure other parents are aware of what failed in Broward County so that future school tragedies might be prevented.

The mourning father has written a book spelling out the countless red flags school officials and law enforcement were handed regarding the deranged murderer who took the lives of so many innocent victims, including Meadow — and says policies implemented by President Barack Obama prevented the reporting of an abundance of evidence that could have been used to stop his daughter’s killer. . .

The piece goes through a litany of events which — although apparently disturbing enough for Cruz’s teachers to report in their notes — were either never reported to or dismissed by proper authorities. One noteworthy example was that Cruz’s psychiatrist insisted her patient should not be admitted in to JROTC citing “the safety of others/himself,” but he was nonetheless enrolled in the program and “literally” given “an air gun, shaped like an AR-15, and [allowed to] practice shooting.”

On Wednesday, Pollack explained to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, a specific example of how policies implemented by the Obama administration contributed to Cruz slipping through the cracks.

“Students were allowed four misdemeanors per school year without being introduced to the judicial system,” Pollack said. “And then, at the end of the year — if you can believe this, Tucker — so that was in the ninth grade, you had a kid next to your kid in the classroom, commits four misdemeanors, and then the next year in tenth grade, he resets at zero, again, and is allowed another four misdemeanors per school year.” (Read more from “Parkland Father Exposes How Killer Was Enabled by Obama’s School-Leniency Policies” HERE)

Andrew Yang Does What No Other Presidential Candidate Has Ever Done at Democratic Debate — but It Could Be Illegal

Presidential candidate Andrew Yang promised to do what no other candidate has ever done at the third Democratic debate, and he revealed his legally-suspect strategy in his opening statement.

The entrepreneur announced that he would give $1,000 a month to ten randomly selected families that signed up at his website. . .

“In America today everything revolves around the almighty dollar,” he began.

“It’s time to stop trusting politicians and start trusting ourselves – so I’m going to do something unprecedented tonight,” he continued.

“My campaign will now give a freedom dividend of $1,000 a month for an entire year to 10 American families,” he announced. (Read more from “Andrew Yang Does What No Other Presidential Candidate Has Ever Done at Democratic Debate — but It Could Be Illegal” HERE)

Joe Biden Attacked During Debate over Memory Problems; Democrat Debate Highlights: Biden at Center Stage and Focus of Attacks

By Daily Wire. During Thursday night’s Democratic presidential primary debate in Houston, former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro attacked former Vice President Joe Biden over his health care plan, saying that it would leave many Americans uninsured.

“The difference between what I support and what you support, Vice President Biden, is that you require them to opt in, and I would not require them to opt in. They would automatically be enrolled, they wouldn’t have to buy in,” Castro said to Biden.

“You do not have to buy in,” Biden responds.

“Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago,” continues Castro. “Are you forgetting already what you said just two minutes ago? I can’t believe that you said two minutes ago that they had to buy in, and now you’re saying they don’t have to — you’re forgetting that.”

Immediately after the exchange, the internet reacted with a mixture of humor and shock. Trevor Noah, the host of The Daily Show, tweeted a clip of the exchange with the caption, “Achievement Unlocked: Elder Abuse.”

Democrat Debate Highlights: Biden at Center Stage and Focus of Attacks

By Politico. Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren shared a debate stage for the first time Thursday. But it was former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro who went hardest after the ex-vice president and Democratic front-runner. . .

Joe Biden spent the first two debates of the Democratic presidential primary as the front-runner waiting to get attacked onstage.

On Thursday, Biden decided to go on the attack and take on the two primary rivals threatening his first place status — Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — over health care, prompting a lengthy debate that pitted the more moderate candidates against the more progressive ones.

“I think we should have a debate on health care. I think — I know that the senator says she’s for Bernie, well, I’m for Barack. I think the Obamacare worked,” Biden said, not so subtly pointing out he was the vice president of the last Democratic president.

The U.S. Attorney in DC Just Gave Andrew McCabe Some Bad News

United States Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie K. Liu has recommended moving forward with charges for fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe after he lied under oath multiple times to federal investigators.

Last year McCabe was referred to the U.S. Attorney for criminal charges by the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz. After a lengthy investigation, Horowitz found McCabe lied to FBI agents, Inspector General agents and improperly leaked sensitive information the media. At the time of that referral, McCabe’s lawyers were confident their client wouldn’t be pursued.

“We were advised of the referral within the past few weeks. Although we believe the referral is unjustified, the standard for an IG referral is very low,” McCabe’s attorney released in a statement at the time. “We have already met with staff members from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. We are confident that, unless there is inappropriate pressure from high levels of the Administration, the U.S. Attorney’s Office will conclude that it should decline to prosecute.”

From the IG report:

We found that, in a conversation with then-Director Comey shortly after the WSJ article was published, McCabe lacked candor when he told Comey, or made statements that led Comey to believe, that McCabe had not authorized the disclosure and did not know who did. This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.5 (Lack of Candor – No Oath).

Trump Administration Announces Rollback of ‘Destructive and Horrible’ Obama-Era Water Rule

The following is an excerpt from Blaze Media’s daily Capitol Hill Brief email newsletter:

The Trump administration is set to announce a final repeal of the Obama administration’s “Waters of the United States” rule on Thursday. Environmental Protection Agency administrator Andrew Wheeler made the announcement via an op-ed in the Des Moines Register Thursday morning.

The Obama-era regulation, put forward in 2015, drastically expanded which waterways are subject to federal control under the Clean Water Act to include man-made ditches and streams on private property that only have water in them following rain or snowmelt. It was swamped with litigation from the start. Last month, a federal judge ruled that the Obama administration’s rule violated federal law and sent it back to the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers to be reworked.

Wheeler’s op-ed explains that the 2015 rule was “was so far-reaching that they needed to clarify in regulatory text that puddles were excluded.” This created a regulatory headache for farmers, land developers, and anyone confused about whether or not they now needed a federal permit to work on their own land.

President Trump vowed to kill the rule on the campaign trail, and in 2017, he directed the EPA to work on the “elimination of this very destructive and horrible rule.” A proposed rule introduced by the Environmental Protection Agency back in December would relax the definition of what counts as waters that can be regulated. Republican senators tried to pass an amendment repealing the 2015 rule last year, but it failed.

Wheeler wrote that the “new, more precise definition would mean that farmers, land owners, and businesses will spend less time and money determining whether they need a federal permit and more time upgrading aging infrastructure, building homes, creating jobs, and growing crops to feed our families.”

Trump Admin: Businesses Can Fire Men for Being Gay If They Fire Women for Being Lesbian, Too. ACLU: No.

. . .In a 31-page filing submitted Tuesday with the United States Supreme Court, attorneys for the ACLU continue their advocacy on behalf of Donald Zarda, a man who claims that he was fired by Altitude Express, Inc. because of his attraction to other men and for failing to conform to the “straight male macho stereotype.”

Ray Maynard, the owner of Altitude, and the Trump Administration’s attorneys arguing on Maynard’s behalf don’t dispute Zarda’s claim. Rather, they both claim it’s well within Maynard’s rights under federal law to discriminate against sexual orientation in the workplace. . .

In a recent filing, the Trump Administration acknowledged that an employer who “fires a man for being attracted to men and [who] would not fire other employees for their sexual orientation violates Title VII.” The solution here? Discriminate against lesbians, too. . .

Such a staffing decision, the Trump Administration argues, would be allowable because said policy would discriminate against men and women equally. This doubly discriminatory policy would also be legally sound because, they claim, the real discrimination present in such a policy is actually sourced from sexual orientation discrimination–and is not pure or genuine sex discrimination.

“Altitude and the Government argue that when an employer engages in wholesale ‘sexual-orientation discrimination,’ the ‘[u]nfavorable treatment of a gay or lesbian employee’ is ‘not the consequence of that individual’s sex, but instead of an employer’s policy concerning a different trait—sexual orientation—that Title VII does not protect,’” the ACLU filing notes.

DNC Official May Have Violated Neutrality Rules to Help Joe Biden

A top official of the Democrat National Committee (DNC) may have violated his organization’s neutrality standards in order to save former Vice President Joe Biden from an embarrassing incident.

Ken Martin, the DNC’s vice chair and the president of the Association of State Democratic Committees, allegedly “bawled” out a liberal activist at the New Hampshire Democrats State Convention last week for handing out fliers critical of Biden. The incident was first recounted by Norman Solomon, the activist on the receiving end of the Martin’s animosity, for the liberal blog Common Dreams.

“Ken Martin was angry that my colleagues and I were handing out a flier—providing some inconvenient facts about Joe Biden—to delegates and activists as they entered the New Hampshire Democratic Party convention,” Solomon, a longtime activist and the founder of RootsAction.org, wrote.

The flier, a copy of which was obtained by Breitbart News, highlights a number of controversial stands the former vice president has taken over the span of his 40-year political career. Included are quotes from Biden on issues like banking regulation, criminal justice, and busing to desegregate public schools, among others.

Martin, who also serves as the chairman of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party of Minnesota, was purportedly incensed over the fliers and chose to confront Solomon over their distribution. (Read more from “DNC Official May Have Violated Neutrality Rules to Help Joe Biden” HERE)

The Secret Service Arrested One of the El Paso Survivors That President Trump Invited to the White House

The Secret Service arrested one of the El Paso, Texas, survivors that President Donald Trump intended to honor when he arrived at the White House. . .

On Aug. 3, a 21-year-old man entered a Walmart in El Paso and opened fire, murdering 22 people and wounding dozens others. He was later apprehended by police. He later admitted to targeting Hispanics.

One of the invitees was 50-year-old Chris Grant. In addition to being shot during the attack, Grant claimed to have thrown things, including bottles, at the attacker. Trump also praised Grant, asking his family to thank him on behalf of the country. . .

“Nobody bothered to check with us,” El Paso police spokesman Sgt. Enrique Carrillo told the Washington Examiner. “They would have been informed, as I am telling you now, that our detectives reviewed hours of video and his actions did not match his account.”

“On Monday, Sept. 9, 2019, a White House visitor with an arrest warrant was temporarily detained by U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers,” a spokesperson for the Secret Service explained to the Washington Examiner. “It was subsequently determined that while the arrest warrant was still active, the agency that issued the warrant would not extradite, at which time the individual was released from Secret Service custody.” (Read more from “The Secret Service Arrested One of the El Paso Survivors That President Trump Invited to the White House” HERE)

Study Finds Media Is Losing the ‘Fake News’ War Badly

Donald Trump’s war with the “fake news media” has only ramped up over the course of his presidency, while mainstream news outlets have become more overtly partisan, as infamously acknowledged by the New York Times executive editor admitting that the paper “built our newsroom” to cover one story — the Robert Mueller-debunked “collusion” conspiracy theory — for Trump’s first two years in office. But do Americans agree that the “fake news media” is a problem?

A new study of the public’s confidence in the media found that nearly all Americans — over 95% — are troubled about the current state of the media. While many likely wouldn’t go so far as to label the media the “enemy of the peope,” a majority were indeed very concerned about the prevalance of “fake news,” the reporting of “gossip” rather than fact, “Left-wing” and “Right-wing” agendas steering reports, outright “hit pieces” and “gotcha journalism,” and the prevalence of “celebrity opinons” and “lying spokespeople.”

Boutique PR firm Bospar released its Ethics in Media study this week ahead of a panel the firm is hosting in San Francisco next week. The study, conducted with Propeller Insights, surveyed 1,010 American adults. The results were eye-opening. Over 95% of the respondents said they were “troubled by the current state of media.” . . .

And things aren’t looking up in most Americans’ eyes. The study found that two-thirds (67%) believe that ethics in journalism will only get worse heading into the 2020 election cycle.

Asked about the negative ramifications of the increase in unethical journalism, respondents said it creates “division and partisanship” (64%), “fuels inaccuracies” (63%), “incites hate” (60%), and “creates fear” (57%). (Read more from “Study Finds Media Is Losing the ‘Fake News’ War Badly” HERE)
