We hate Trump because he prefers the “white and wealthy”

2020 Democrats and just about the entire Democratic Party all-but hatePresident Donald Trump.

Let me rephrase that.

2020 Democrats and just about the entire Democratic Party HATE President Trump.

They hate his policies, his hair, his way of expressing himself, his “racist ways,” his kids, and his wife. They even have aftershave or cologne.

Speaking of hating his policies, Democrats call Trump the ‘Big Bad Whitey’ because of his immigration policy, where he is trying to fix the decades-long system.

Trump hates “Brown People,” and his latest move to limit legal immigrants from receiving government assistance, like food stamps and housing is making Democratic heads explode around the country.

According to some most Democrats, Trump prefers the “white and wealthy” or the poor and brown. READ MORE HERE…

Meanwhile, a former Trump aide is saying that the president is taking a big gamble in Venezuela with his new full embargo with Venezuela. The U.S. is in position to benefit there, let’s just hope the administration does not drop the ball or the mango. READ MORE HERE


Most of the field of candidates, minus Robert “Beto” O’Rourke who is in El Paso, Texas milking every last drop of the mass shooting there, is at the Iowa state fair.

The fair is very important in the election cycle, giving candidates the opportunity to meet potential “First in the nation voters,” kiss babies, kiss some A*sses, and pontificate to whoever shows up to the event.

While he is still way up in the polls, former Vice President Joe Biden is still trying to recover from those to major gaffes that once again called his ability to lead into question.

Sen. Kamala Harris was visibly taken back by a little ole’ granny who told here to leave her healthcare alone. Harris, who wants to overhaul the entire healthcare system, didn’t have much to say. What could she have said?

The Castros are still having to defend themselves after Rep. Joaquin Castro (D) posted the names of some of Trump’s San Antonio-area donors. No one was happy he did it, even though big brother Julian Castro asserted that those names were all public records.

Rick Scott says he backs “Red Flag” Laws by The Floridian’s Daniel Molina

This is the issue du jour that almost all GOP and Democratically elected officials agree on. Will Trump sign a bill like this into law?

She calls for bipartisanship over “gun violence” but in the end, Fried supports a gun ban. Why not? After all, she says she is the head of the Democratic Party in Florida. Don’t Democrats all tow the party line? Not all.

President Donald Trump @realDonaldTrump

No debate on Election Security should go forward without first agreeing that Voter ID (Identification) must play a very strong part in any final agreement. Without Voter ID, it is all so meaningless!

Nancy Pelosi @SpeakerPelosi on Trump’s immigration rule

This hateful, bigoted rule is a direct assault on our nation’s proud heritage as a beacon of hope and opportunity for all and a clear attempt to demonize and terrorize the newcomers who make America more American. It will be swiftly challenged and defeated in the courts.

ICE interim director defends raids in Mississippi, blames parents for abandoned children by Telemundo

The Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Control ( ICE ), Matthew Albence, defended the raids that his agency conducted in Mississippi last week, in which many children were left without their parents , and declared that those who violated the law are to blame for these separations.

” We carried out our operations with professionalism, compassion and humanity , and did our best to minimize their impact on people who are innocent,” said Albence. However, we have to enforce the law . Each [law enforcement agency] enforces the law against people who violate it. ”

“Parents or people who break the law are ultimately responsible for placing their children in this situation,” he said .

Last week, police authorities raided food processing plants in Mississippi, arresting nearly 700 workers, most of them Latino, in what was said to be the largest single-day raid in US history. .

These operations affected seven plants, owned by five companies in six different cities, leaving numerous children without their parents. Some of these children were just starting school , forcing them to ask for help from strangers or distant relatives while they were waiting for answers about the whereabouts of their relatives, immigrant activists reported. Read more

President-elect of Guatemala says that immigration agreement signed by Jimmy Morales with Trump is unsustainable by Telemundo

President-elect of Guatemala, Alejandro Giammattei , said Tuesday that as signed the “safe third country” agreement signed with the United States to receive thousands of migrants is unsustainable.

In an interview with a Mexican media , Giammattei indicated that the agreement should be analyzed together with other annexed and specific agreements signed between the two countries.

“As is the definition of a safe third country, I believe that Guatemala is not in a position to maintain it,” he said. Since the agreement was announced Giammattei has maintained that the outgoing president Jimmy Morales’ government has not informed about the implications involved and has said that the country does not have the conditions to receive and care for migrants…Read more


Ted Yoho @RepTedYoho

The continuation of #HongKongProtests, including today’s closing of the city’s intl airport, shows that rising resentment in Hong Kong is not simply a result of the ill-fated extradition law, but the continued encroachment on freedoms & liberties by #XiJinping & the CCP.


US Rep Kathy Castor @USRepKCastor
