Let’s be clear about something regarding the thugs who shot at San Antonio’s ICE Facility. They aren’t protesters. They aren’t activists. They’re full-fledged domestic terrorists. Now the FBI is investigating the terrorist attack, as it should.

The people working in that building are federal employees, making it the feds’ jurisdiction. Obviously, I don’t know who fired the shots but it isn’t a stretch to think that the terrorists are affiliated with the Democratic Party. Democrats have said nothing about organizations like Antifa, #BlackLivesMatter and Indivisible. So-called protesters visited Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home in Kentucky, where one of the terrorists said that she wished that someone would stab the motherf—-r in the heart:

Let’s hope that terrorist is arrested, tried, convicted and sent to prison. But that’s a different terrorist attack. Let’s return to the one in San Antonio. Here’s what we know at this point:

The FBI said Tuesday it is investigating after shots were fired in the early morning hours at a San Antonio office building that houses Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). No one was injured in the shooting, officials said.

Investigators say that around 3:00 a.m. Tuesday, shots were fired into a window of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office and Removal Operations Field Office.

Later, a press conference was held:

The FBI special-agent-in-charge Christopher Combs called it a “targeted attack.” “To fire indiscriminately into any building especially a federal facility is not an act of protest- it’s an act of violence,” Combs said at a press conference. “And in in this case it’s an act of violence that could have resulted in the assassination of a federal employee. That cannot happen in San Antonio.”

Isn’t it interesting that this terrorist attack took place in San Antonio, the home of Joaquin Castro, the man who outed Trump supporters? Isn’t it interesting that twin brother Julian Castro, a politician who is running for president as a Democrat, thinks that illegal aliens shouldn’t be charged with a crime for illegally entering into the United States?

If Democrats keep ratcheting up the immigration rhetoric by saying that detention facilities are like Nazi concentration camps, the depravity level will drop further. If Democrats keep talking about ICE ripping families apart, the next attack against an ICE facility might include fatalities. At this point, Democrats appear to be in a race to the bottom of the depravity barrel.

How low can Democrats go? God help us with that. It’s a frightening though.

President Obama is the last politician who should speak out against mass shootings. After President Obama’s statement Monday, President Trump noted that “President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign. Not many people said Obama is out of control.” It’s fair to say that President Obama’s language was more restrained than President Trump’s language.

What isn’t fair is to say that President Trump’s language has contributed to these mass shootings. That’s nothing except sloppy rationalization. It doesn’t have anything to do with the truth.

As was often his habit, President Obama characterized himself as the arbiter of truth and the American way. In 2016, Americans rejected that narcissism and elected President Obama’s opposite when they elected President-Elect Trump. In his statement, President Obama said, in part, “We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.”

I don’t recall President Obama criticizing anti-Semitic Democrats like Rashida Tlaib or Ilhan Omar compare Jews with animals. President Obama certainly didn’t criticize Louis Farrakhan for his anti-Semitic dehumanizing comments. There certainly isn’t anything on the record with President Obama criticizing #BlackLivesMatters for this:

Then there’s Joaquin Castro’s tweet:


I’m so thankful that Democrats aren’t doxing people and putting their lives at risk from Antifa thugs. Joaquin Castro is a thug. He should be fired by his constituents for threatening people for being political activists.

The truth is that President Obama is just the highest-profile Democrat political thug. He certainly isn’t the only Democrat political thug.

Although it felt like fingernails running across a chalkboard, I still listened to Dick Durbin’s spin about the Democrats’ trip to the US-Mexico border. Durbin tweeted out a message that essentially said that Trump is a racist for enforcing US immigration laws. Specifically, Durbin said “Just got done with my trip to the southern border in McAllen, TX. Our immigration system is broken. You can’t walk into these facilities, see these children, and believe that this situation is acceptable. America is better than this.”

Like Sen. Schumer, Durbin didn’t mention a thing about tightening the asylum laws, closing immigration loopholes or fixing the Flores decision. Neither man mentioned building a physical structure to funnel drug cartels or human traffickers into chokepoints. Everything these men said focused exclusively on the conditions for the children.

What these Democrats didn’t talk about spoke louder than the things these Democrats did talk about. Here’s Durbin’s tweet:


What chutzpah from Sen. Durbin. President Trump first told Democrats that there was a crisis on the border before the midterm elections. Back then, Democrats called it a “manufactured crisis.” CNN joined in to sing from the Democrats’ spin hymnal. Ditto with MSNBC. Kirstjen Nielsen testified before Congress that Homeland Security was at a breaking point. The day after Christmas, 2018, she re-iterated that point in this article:

Declaring the U.S. immigration system had been “pushed to a breaking point by those who seek open borders,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Wednesday ordered mandatory medical checks on all children under the age of 10 in U.S. custody and said she would send U.S. Coast Guard medical personnel to the border to help. Nielsen said she also planned to visit the border later this week to see “first-hand” how medical screenings were handled.

Apparently, Democrats didn’t give a damn one way or the other about “the children.” Apparently, Democrats didn’t start caring until it reached a political tipping point. The Democrats’ phony solution to everything that’s happening on the border is nothing more than treating symptoms. Caring for children in custody is the right thing to do but that’s treating a symptom. In this post, I noted Sen. Schumer’s ‘solution’ to the border crisis:

We must pass our bill to help end it—the Stop Cruelty to Migrant Children Act.

I don’t know who’s worse between Sen. Schumer or Sen. Durbin. Neither of them paid attention to the crisis until a month ago. These Democrats ridiculed President Trump, who correctly identified the crisis months ago. Then again, Sen. Durbin has a history of criticizing law enforcement and the military. Here’s an oldie but goodie:

A US senator has refused to apologize for comparing the actions of US soldiers at Guantanamo Bay to those of Nazis, while others have decried or defended the mandate and method used to hold prisoners there.

“If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime – Pol Pot or others – that had no concern for human beings.”

That’s what Sen. Durbin said about our military guarding terrorists in Gitmo. That’s what a Democrat dirtbag sounds like.

Don’t mistake the Democrats’ calls for helping the children as actual empathy. Always remember my old saying about Democrats. If you’ve forgotten, it goes like this: Democrats will always do the right thing … when it’s the last option left.

That’s the definition of a dirtbag politician.

On March 23 and at a CAIR event, Democrat freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar talked about 9/11, saying that “some people did something”. Then Rep. Omar lied while saying that CAIR was created after 9/11. In the exact quote, Rep. Omar said “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

After getting attacked for that insensitivity, Democrats rallied to Rep. Omar’s defense. Eventually, Rep. Omar replied with this tweet:


It’s true that Omar is an American citizen. She couldn’t be a member of Congress if she wasn’t. Don’t mistake her citizenship, though, with her “commitment to our country“. This article highlights Rep. Omar’s lack of commitment to the US:

“In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan,” Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar wrote in a tweet on October 16, 2017.

Here’s that tweet:


What a blithering idiot. Rep. Omar thinks that the people that freed 100,000 Somali people were the terrorists. WOW!!! If these attacks continue, Democrats will be staring at a landslide.

The Democrats’ new face of anti-Semitism is Rep. Ilhan Omar. According to this article, Rep. Omar once said of ISIS terrorists “The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion. We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to effect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation.” Right. I’m sure that the minute we show compassion towards these terrorists that they’ll return to a life of running their small businesses and volunteering to help with the Boy Scouts.

One of the men in particular, Abdirahman Yasin Daud, was facing over 30 years in prison for trying to join the terrorist group. He admitted in court that he wasn’t trying to enter Syria on humanitarian grounds, but rather to participate in the activities of ISIS.

“I was not going there to pass out medical kits or food. I was going strictly to fight and kill on behalf of the Islamic State,” he said.

Showing compassion to confessed terrorists isn’t just not compassionate. It’s downright stupid. What’s worse is that Rep. Omar was just put on the House Foreign Relations Committee. What’s worst is her anti-Semitic tweet:


The McSally-Sinema race is definitely heating up. If it wasn’t, Mitt Romney wouldn’t be taking time away from his campaign to campaign for Martha McSally. That isn’t the only proof that the race is heating up, either.

Over the past 2-3 weeks, Sinema has gotten caught in some fairly major lies. First, she was caught lying about being homeless as a child. She took a hit when a reporter found electric bills that her family paid while they were supposed homeless. It’s difficult to picture a homeless family paying electric bills while they’re homeless. Further, Sinema was exposed as supporting a lawyer for a famous terrorist:

The first, from Fox News, delineated how Sinema promoted events at Arizona State University that featured attorney Lynn Stewart, who was convicted for aiding Omar Abdel Rahman, who himself was charged and sentenced to life for scheming to blow up the United Nations, an FBI building, two tunnels, and a bridge in New York City.

Then there’s this:

The second story was reported by The Washington Free Beacon, which wrote of a group email from 2006 in which Sinema equated the deaths of American soldiers with illegal immigrants entering the United States.

Perhaps, those stories started circulating while this poll was in the field:

A month ago, the MSM were all but writing Arizona off for the Republicans. If that ABC poll is right, reports of McSally’s demise were definitely premature.

Thursday night, C-cubed and Red Hat events are holding an event at the Tuscan Center. The subjects for the event will be “Crime & Terrorism A local & National Perspective.” Confirmed to attend are Philip Haney and Dave Bentrud. Mr. Haney is the co-author of the book titled “See Something, Say Nothing.” He is a former whistleblower who worked in the US Department of Homeland Security.

If you don’t know much about him, this article will provide you with a ton of important information about Mr. Haney and the important responsibilities he was tasked with at the DHS.

Haney will provide insights into federal counterterrorism efforts.

Dave Bentrud is currently the Police Commissioner of the Waite Park Police Department. He’s also running to become the next sheriff of Stearns County. Chief Bentrud will provide insights into law enforcement strategies to keep crime as low as possible.

The doors open at 6:30 pm, with Mr. Haney’s presentation starting at 7:00 pm. The crime/law enforcement forum starts at 7:30 pm. PS- This video will help people understand Mr. Haney:

The DFL is doing its best to deny their responsibility for hundreds of millions of dollars of fraudulent child care payments to happen. That’s what this MPR article amounts to.

The MPR article defends the Dayton administration by saying “Johnson said there wasn’t any evidence presented in the former cases to indicate ties to terrorism. He also said he found the $100 million figure to be not ‘credible.’ That would account for half of the child-care assistance program. ‘From what we know about the scope of fraud within the program, we’re obviously concerned about it, but it’s not at that level,’ said Johnson.”

Naturally, Keith Ellison is on the wrong side of this issue. The MPR article quotes Ellison as saying “Financial stability for the Somali people, both here and in Somalia, is one of our strongest protections against the terroristic threat posed by Al-Shabaab. We should be making it easier for our constituents to support their families, not impugning the community for it. Fox 9 should issue a thorough correction and apology for its irresponsible reporting.'”

Ellison knows better than to say this. A high percentage of the money being sent to Somalia is money that’s been gained through fraud. That’s been verified by Chuck Johnson, the acting commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Human Services, when he said “Essentially, it’s like a shadow situation where there’s not really care being provided for the children, but the children are signed up for care as if they are. And in some cases, the parents are paid a kickback to be part of that scheme.”

I’m certain this is a foreign concept to Rep. Ellison but Fox9 News shouldn’t apologize for reporting on this criminal activity. We know this is criminal activity because Chuck Johnson admitted that “an investigation that began in 2014 led to the closure of 13 child care centers, six felony convictions and $4.6 million in court-ordered restitution.”

Jim Abeler was interviewed by FNC’s Shannon Bream about the scandal:

Here’s Tim Pawlenty’s statement on the scandal:

Technorati: , , , ,

It isn’t difficult to find incompetence within the Dayton administration. The first high-profile example of incompetence, of course, was the MNsure disaster. This year, we’ve dealt with the MNLARS crisis, which is definitely a major case of incompetence.

State Sen. Karin Housley’s investigation into the nursing home abuse crisis is a case of both incompetence and corruption since the caretakers who abused their patients weren’t investigated. Only a portion of these cases were investigated.

The daycare scandal is both a matter of incompetence and corruption. It dwarfs the nursing home scandal. This morning, we learned through Fox9’s excellent reporting that “Scott Stillman spent eight years managing the state’s digital forensics lab, meaning he mined data from computers and smart phones. ‘I have never seen anything like this level or scope in my 27-year career as an investigator,’ he told Fox 9.” Later in the interview, Stillman “was so alarmed by what he found that in March of 2017 he fired off a series of emails to his supervisors at DHS. ‘We are working on and overwhelmed by a significant amount of fraud cases involving organized crime, defrauding hundreds of millions of dollars annually in taxpayer monies,’ he wrote.”

That means that the Dayton administration knew about this ripoff and did nothing. Let that sink it. The Dayton administration knew about this ripoff and did nothing. Now they’re denying hearing about it:

According to Stillman, he alerted a number of people in DHS including the Commissioner’s Chief of Staff with the following message: “Significant amount of these defrauded dollars are being sent overseas to countries and organizations connected to entities known to fund terrorists and terrorism.”

At a Monday press briefing, the governor told Fox 9 his office was not told about the warnings. Sources tell the Fox 9 Investigators people within the governor’s office were told about the concerns a couple of years ago. “My chief of staff, current and previous staff, from what I’m told, did not get any information alleging there was that kind of theft,” Dayton said.

The Dayton administration finished with this gem:

DHS responded with a statement: “The Deputy Commissioner, communications and legal staff learned there may be emails on this subject when Fox 9 made its data request in March. The then-chief compliance officer was informed at the time the emails were originally sent.”

What type of communications team did they establish in the Dayton administration? Or didn’t they bother with that whatsoever? Or are they just lying?

Think about this: hundreds of millions of dollars left in suitcases via MSP. An inspector notices this & reports it to the Department of Human Services. Nothing happens until this Fox9 investigation. Then Gov. Dayton insists that he never heard about these whistleblower reports.

This isn’t uncommon with Democrats. The Obama administration didn’t admit that news about Fast and Furious made it to Eric Holder’s desk. President Obama still insists that he found out about Hillary’s private email address through a news report even after he sent her emails at her private email address. Why should anyone think that Democrats care one iota about accountability and honesty?

This article is good news for GOP gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie, saying “The new poll of likely Virginia voters by Republican firm Optimus/Firehouse Strategies over Wednesday and Thursday shows Gillespie leading his Democratic opponent Ralph Northam by 40.4 percent to 37.4 percent.” The thing that’s most encouraging, though, is that the Latino Victory Fund ad enraged independents and fired up Republicans.

As a result, turnout should be high for the GOP candidate. Meanwhile, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam is having difficulty turning out the Obama coalition. Those 2 things should help deliver a victory for a victory to Governor-Elect-in-Waiting Gillespie.

Turnout for Northam might be hurt because he’s played into Republicans’ hands on sanctuary cities. The article says “Northam has also received criticism among party members and progressive voter groups for his break with party rhetoric on so-called sanctuary cities, which do not comply with federal immigration laws, saying he would sign legislation banning them ‘if that bill comes to my desk.'” First, that’s taking a defensive position, which isn’t good anytime but especially troubling the last week of a campaign.

Then there’s this:

Following headliner Stephen K. Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart News, populist-nationalist 2018 U.S. Senate candidate Corey Stewart addressed the Remembrance Project National Conference in Washington, DC, Saturday. The event, at the capital’s famous Willard Hotel, featured a “who’s who” of leaders in the fight against illegal immigration, including headliner Bannon, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, and Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo, in Remembrance Project’s largest annual event to honor Americans killed by illegal alien crime and the “angel families” they left behind.

Finally, there’s this observation:

“MS-13 is not just a Northern Virginia problem. It’s not just in Northern Virginia and tidewater,” Stewart told Breitbart News on Saturday. “It is spreading down the [Interstate] 81 corridor and is becoming a statewide issue … It’s an issue that will drive not only conservatives but independent voters who are concerned about it.”

The winner of the big elections is the candidate that finds the issue that evokes the most visceral reaction. I think MS-13 is this year’s visceral issue. We’ll see Tuesday night whether I’m right.
