SWEDES Fleeing Lefty SWEDEN!….GUESS WHY!!

In migrant-surged Sweden, now it’s the Swedes who are fleeing

by Monica Showalter at American Thinker:

 

Sweden has drawn praise for opening its doors to thousands of fleeing Middle Eastern and African refugees and migrants, in numbers comparable only to Germany:

When it comes to refugees, [U.N. Secretary-General Antonio] Guterres praised Sweden for being “absolutely exemplary” and said Europe had failed to provide support by taking coordinated action to ensure equal distribution in the area.

“Instead, Europe was totally unable to find solidarity for this kind of integrated European solution. There was no European solution.  As there was no solidarity at all, two countries, Sweden and Germany have essentially been the ones receiving the overwhelming majority of the refugees, which is absolutely unfair, which doesn’t make any sense.”

Turns out that wasn’t such a bright idea, given that Swedish cities such as Malmö have turned into Muslim-dominant no-go hellholes, which Swedes now find unlivable.  The migrants freely admitted to Sweden have placed about as much value on that entry as the price they paid for it, which is nothing.

Now it’s the Swedes who are fleeing, setting off a second refugee wave of sorts as Swedes move away to either the Swedish hinterlands or else to other countries, according to this Gatestone report.

  • “As a parent, you become angry, desperate… The result is that those who can, and can afford it, move…. To a quieter part of the country or abroad. Those who do not have the same opportunities [to move] remain where they are. It’s devastating…” — Former Minister of Labour Sven Otto Littorin, who now lives and works in Dubai, on Facebook.
  • “About 13 percent of the population in Sweden experience problems in their own residential areas with crime, violence or vandalism. It is one of the highest proportions in Europe.” By comparison, the other Nordic countries were placed among the countries with the lowest percentage of the population who experience such problems….” — Statistics Sweden, April 25, 2019.

Swedes are on the move. Problems in many municipalities are prompting Swedes to leave for other areas with fewer socioeconomic problems. The issue has recently gained the attention of the Swedish mainstream media.

They’re calling it a “population exchange,” which isn’t exactly a gain.  According to Gatestone:

Take the small, picturesque town of Filipstad (population 10,000), for example. Swedish television recently made a documentary about the town, which finds itself in both a financial and an existential crisis. “We are experiencing a population exchange. You can think of that what you want… But it is simply a statement of fact that this is actually what we are going through and we have to deal with it”, Jim Frölander, integration manager in the Filipstad municipality, says in the documentary. Between 2012 and 2018, 640 native Swedes left the town, and 963 foreign-born people moved into the town. Those leaving are people of working age (20-64), which means that the municipality’s tax revenues are shrinking, exacerbating [the] town’s financial crisis.

Oh, sure — the idea of taking in thousands of unassimilated and hostile Muslims into Sweden’s cities may have sounded great to the country’s central planners.  Its own population after all, is in a death spiral as a result of its past socialist policies, which created a high-cost, low-marriage, low-child, graying country with a potential pension crisis.  But Sweden also wanted to virtue-signal to other countries as it opened its gates to all comers and drew all that U.N. praise.

What this report signals is that Sweden ended up exchanging its well educated, law-abiding, and high-social-capital population for an unemployable, uneducated, lawless, and low-social-capital one.  The central planning here — and as this excellent New York Post article notes, it is a country with a lot of central planning — didn’t quite work out the way they thought it would.  Sweden isn’t gaining the population its social engineers thought it would gain from this top-down maneuver; it’s actually losing its most productive citizens as an unintended consequence, because for every unassimilated refugee coming in, a Swede is moving out.

Now it’s the Swedes who are voting with their feet.  Countries that fought to keep high numbers of unvetted, unassimilated, and hostile migrants from their shores drew a lot of opprobrium, but at least they aren’t seeing this kind of flight.  It all boils down to migrants placing about as much value on the country they are admitted to as the price they actually paid for it.

YOUR WORLD WITH FASCISTIC PHIL CAVUTO

Arrogant, big mouth, cocky, Foxy, antiPresident Trump, Phil Cavuto,  seems to be one of the Fox News  fascistics who froth at their joy mouth to eliminate our American 45th President from the nation’s White House as soon as possible.

Is President Trump  too American for the business folks at Fox News?   Perhaps he can’t be controlled for he LOVES HIS COUNTRY JUST AS I And  MILLIONS OF AMERICAN CHRISTIANS DO!!!   He is not bought or otherwise controlled by BUSINESS, BIG OR INTERNATIONAL.  Is that what makes so many mouths of Fox “News” reporters and reviewers like Cavuto to cheat, distort, so often complain and/or squeal against the President at news hours?  Is it instruction from station leftists or personal?

Or is the American population under age 50 so uneducated, so obtuse to American existence at home and abroad, so drugged, Godless,  and lost in life bearing  no brains clear enough to handle learning right from wrong,  those vitally  important matters of civilized human existence?

Did or did not President Donald J. Trump, while talking on the phone with the President of the Ukraine President, Volodymyr Zelensky,  utter any word or words wondering about  a serious rumor  that a flaky American Vice President’s son, a young man of many serious background issues, carped millions of dollars out of  Ukraine pockets to score a bit of  fuel business for the weak nation nearly crushed by papa Russia?

So what?    Major corruption was in the air.   How did millions of dollars wind up in the pocket of  Vice President’s troubled son?

Dem fascists wouldn’t hear of something so possibly TRUE.  These fascists and fascistics, almost fascists) are programmed to assault before, during, or/and, after such news…THEY OWN OUR PRESS!

Ancient American MILLIONAIRE, Biddy Pelosi, with countless fascist and fascistic Dem friends and allies, immediately turned to their press and television command worlds.  These fascistics  OWN parts of  the Wall Street Journal, and, outside of radio, nearly every  newspaper and television news communication apparatus in our American world.

If TRUTH had any value in today’s American lines of knowledge, business, and communication,  Democrat candidate for the Leftist American Presidency, Ditsy Vice President Joseph Biden should be confronted by law for possible corruption charges,  NOT TO LIVE IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

But TRUTH HAS NO MEANING AMONG  TODAY’S ADAM SCHIFF  ANIMALS DOMINATING OUR ONCE HONORABLE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.  THEY ARE EITHER MUTE, FOREVER LIARS, OR  FASCISTS OR FASCISTICS PLOTTING “GOOD BYE AMERICA!!!

UNTIL PRESIDENT TRUMP, WE WERE  ALREADY IN OUR CONGRESSIONAL TAR PITS…..ARE YOU TOO UNLEARNED TO KNOW IT?…..OR DO YOU LIVE IN A TODAY’S AMERICAN DEM  BODY WHERE TRUTH,  AND GOODNESS  NO LONGER EXIST?”

These Pelosi fascists of our day who own news television and America’s newsprint from the Atlantic to the Pacific dictate the news that  President Trump has committed a serious crime, one for impeachment and removal from office.   That is the way the fascist Left in power makes truth and knowledge disappear!  Enough noise must overwhelm their own leftist corruptions so their evil can never be reported,  exposed.

I fell in love with Donald becoming our American President,  I think it was August 6, 2015 at Fox center, when the Republican National Committee was plotting to get rid of Mr. Trump as its GOP Candidate for the Presidency……Fox’s Megyn Kelly plotting to get rid of him asap as a presidential GOP candidate listed a few difficulties he had had with some women in the news….asking him if this was the way he viewed all women, never asking any difficult responses from  any of Fox-approved Republicans.

Donald answered, “No, only Rosie O’Donnell.”   My love for Trump began.  My love for functional, staid Republicans diminished.   I have loved and admired Donald ever since!

I am 85.   Somewhere in my 50s  when Donald Trump was happily married to his first wife, well before his Hollywood business jaunt and its episodes I was captured by  a two hour television program about his life.   His was a totally different world from my very modest life teaching  high school Social Studies and Russian in Minneapolis or later on, garden landscaping after being fired by telling Truths about school system to the public.

In the television review Donald Trump  spoke highly of his dad and mom and his opportunities…..had attended two private schools, the second one, according to his dad,  for more discipline in learnings!

Did you know Donald Trump was a gifted athlete in a number of sports.   If I remember the television biography  correctly, when he graduated college, he was offered a contract by the New York Yankees….what else?   HE TURNED THE OFFER DOWN TO WORK FOR HIS DAD IN THE BUILDING BUSINESS.

I was aware Mr. Trump lost his close older brother to alcoholism….according to the biography…..apparently a  main reason our President abstains.

My own dad was Republican.  He was an athlete and a pharmacist.  I married a Democrat in 1957 and remained one until Ronald Reagan.   I did like President John F. Kennedy very much, but no one else in his peculiar family.

Hillary was, is purely evil.   And so are the censoring big business and racist  fascists and fascistics who have taken over today’s once honorable American Democratic Party.

Will 45th American President,  Donald J. Trump,  overcome the Rise of our American fascists and fascistics now dominating American education, communication, and political worlds?

Obviously we cannot know the future.  But, with the rise of our new leaders,  Donald J. Trump and our Dennis Prager spreading knowledge, freedoms, and exposing Truth, WE AMERICANS FOR FREEDOM HAVE A GOOD CHANCE!  ghr

P.S.   HAVE A WONDERFUL  SUNDAY!

A Case for a Trump Landslide in 2020!

Gowdy: “I am heatbroken for the victims.”

Epstein’s killer has already gotten away with murder

by Michael James  at  American Thinker:

 

The minute I read Trey Gowdy’s quote concerning Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide, I knew we will never get to the bottom of the irresponsible and unforgiveable actions of our government concerning the suicide of Epstein.

Gowdy, who never gets to the bottom of anything before retiring and cashing big checks, said, “I am heartbroken for the victims.”

Gowdy might as well have said, “Well, that’s that; we will never know the truth.  Too bad for all of those underage women.  I am sorry, but the secrets die with the man.”

No further curiosity needed; too bad for those girls.

Gowdy knows how things work around here.

According to Morgan Krakow, Hannah Knowles, and Marisa Lati at MSN, “Epstein was placed on suicide watch last month but then taken off within about a week, a person familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity told the Washington Post.”

We should know right this minute who took Epstein off suicide watch.

But we don’t.

And I doubt we will ever know.

Whoever gave that order is the traitor in our midst.

So we begin another round of “investigation” that will lead to nowhere because pertinent questions will never be asked.

The Jeffrey Epstein suicide case begins with the person who ordered Epstein off suicide watch.  This person pulled the trigger, whether Epstein actually committed the act or someone else shoved Epstein’s neck into the noose.

Who lifted the suicide watch and pushed Jeffrey Epstein’s button?

It’s just one more thing we will never get to the bottom of.

And that’s more than a little heartbreaking.

You may never have seen Glen play like this before. This is world-class guitar playing and Campbell makes it look easy.

The sounds of Glen Campbell on guitar and the symphony orchestra playing Rossini’s“William Tell Overture”  will take you

Lefty Dem Feminists Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley Spray Their Mouths upon the American Public

TRUMP PICKS UP THE CUDGELS AGAIN

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

This morning, President Trump returned to his scrap with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and their “Squad.” In a series of tweets, he mostly quoted Lindsay Graham. Notably, he did not return to his ill-advised theme that the Congresswomen should go back to the countries they came from–ill-advised, to say the least, because all but one are native Americans. Here are the tweets:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

“We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of Communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own Country, they’re calling the guards along our Border (the Border Patrol Agents) Concentration Camp Guards, they accuse people who support Israel as doing it for the Benjamin’s,….

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

….they are Anti-Semitic, they are Anti-America, we don’t need to know anything about them personally, talk about their policies. I think they are American citizens who are duly elected that are running on an agenda that is disgusting, that the American people will reject……

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

….What does it mean for America to have free Healthcare for Illegal Immigrants, no criminalization of coming into our Country – See how that works for controlling Immigration! They talk about Israel like they’re a bunch of thugs, not victims of the entire region. They wanted…

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

…..to impeach President Trump on DAY ONE. Make them the face of the future of the Democrat Party, you will destroy the Democrat Party. Their policies will destroy our Country!” @LindseyGrahamSC Need I say more?

Trump quotes without comment that portion of Senator Graham’s remarks where Graham implicitly rebuked the president for yesterday’s “go back where you came from” theme:

…we don’t need to know anything about them personally, talk about their policies. I think they are American citizens who are duly elected that are running on an agenda that is disgusting, that the American people will reject….

I am pretty much with Lindsay Graham on this one. There aren’t many bad things one can say about AOC, Ilhan Omar et al. that I wouldn’t subscribe to, as long as one sticks to the facts.

Some would say that Graham went overboard when he referred to the radical Democrats as “a bunch of Communists,” on the ground that a socialist is not the same thing as a Communist. I am not offended by Graham’s use of that term, however. I think when people like the radical Congresswomen and Bernie Sanders use the phrase “democratic socialist” to describe their views, they basically mean Communism that is imposed via elections rather than armed rebellion. If there is any limit they would impose on government power, I haven’t seen it–certainly not in the Green New Deal.

Comment from ghr:   Dear President Trump….I love your tweets to the public.   They stir these ditsy Dem feminist  fascists best!    Keep up your good work!

PRESIDENT TRUMP REVIEWS The Supreme Court Scandal!

Trump: Not Backing Down On Effort To Determine Citizenship Status Of U.S. Population

 

FOX 10: President Trump, speaking at the White House on Thursday, announced that he would “immediately” issue an executive order to get an accurate count of non-citizens and citizens in the United States — a measure Trump said would be “far more accurate” than relying on a citizenship question in the 2020 census.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Thank you very much, everyone. Are you a citizen of the United States of America? Oh, gee, I’m sorry, I just can’t answer that question and that’s after spending billions and billions of dollars.

There used to be a time when you could answer questions like that very easily; there used to be a time when you could probably the clear I am a citizen of the United States. Now they are trying to erase the very existence of a very important word and a very important thing, citizenship.

They are even coming after the pledge of allegiance in Minnesota. I am proud to be a citizen; you are proud to be a citizen. The only people who are not proud to be citizens are the ones who are fighting us all of the way about the word citizen.

Today I am here to say we’re not backing down on our effort to determine the citizenship status of the United States population. I stand before you to outline new steps my administration is taking to ensure that citizenship is counted so that we know how many citizens we have in the United States. Makes sense.

We will defend the right of the American people to know the full facts about the population, size of citizens and noncitizens in America. It is essential that we have a clear breakdown of the number of citizens and noncitizens that make up the U.S. populations. Imperative.

Knowing this information is vital to formulating sound public policy whether the issue is healthcare, education, civil rights or immigration. We must have a reliable count of how many citizens, noncitizens, and illegal aliens are in our country.

The Department of Commerce sensibly decided to include a citizenship question in the 2020 census as has been done many, many times throughout the history of the United States. Unfortunately this effort was delayed by meritless litigation.

As shocking as it may be far left Democrats in our country are determined to conceal the number of illegal aliens in our midst. They probably know the number is far greater, much higher than anyone would have ever believed before, maybe that’s why they fight so hard. This is part of a broader left-wing effort to erode the rights of the American citizen and it is very unfair to our country.

The Supreme Court ultimately affirmed our right to ask the citizenship question and very strongly it was affirmed but the Supreme Court also ruled that we must provide further explanation that would have produced even more litigation and considerable time delays. The case is already in three federal district courts that have been to be totally honest extremely unfriendly to us. These delays would have prevented us from completing the census on time.

It is deeply regrettable but it will not stop us from collecting the needed information and I think even in greater detail and more accurately. Therefore we are pursuing a new option to ensure a complete and timely count of the noncitizen population. Today I will be issuing an executive order to put this very plan into effect immediately.

I’m hereby ordering every department and agency in the federal government to provide the Department of Commerce with all requested records regarding the number of citizens and noncitizens in our country. They must furnish all legally accessible records in their possession immediately.

We will utilize these vast federal databases to gain a full, complete, and accurate count of the noncitizen population including databases maintained by the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration. We have great knowledge in many of our agencies. We will leave no stone unturned.

The Census Bureau projected that using previously available records it could determine citizenship for 90 percent of our population or more. Today’s executive order eliminates long-standing obstacles to data sharing, we are aiming to count everyone. Ultimately, this will allow us to have an even more complete count of citizens than through asking the single question alone. It will be, we think, far more accurate. The Census Bureau can use this information along with information collected through the questionnaire to create the official census.

In other words, as a result of today’s executive order, we will be able to ensure the 2020 Census generates an accurate count of how many citizens, noncitizens, and illegal aliens are in the United States of America. Not too much to ask. This will greatly inform a wide array of public policy decisions. This information is also relevant to administering our elections. Some states may want to draw state and local legislative districts based upon the voter eligible population.

Indeed, the same day the Supreme Court handed down the census decision, it also said it would not review certain types of districting decisions, which could encourage states to make such decisions based on voter eligibility. With today’s order, we will collect all of the information we need to conduct an accurate census and to make responsible decisions about public policy, voting rights, and representation in Congress. In everything we do, we will faithfully represent the people of the United States of America. I would like now to introduce Attorney General Bill Barr to the podium. Thank you. Thank you, Bill.

ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL BARR: Good evening. Thank you, Mr. President, and congratulations on today’s executive order, which will ensure that we finally have an accurate understanding of how many citizens and noncitizens live in our country. As the Supreme Court recognized, it would be perfectly lawful for the federal government to ask on the census whether individuals are citizens of the United States. And it’s entirely reasonable to want to know how many citizens and noncitizens there are in the United States.

In fact, the federal government has routinely asked questions relating to citizenship ever since the 1820s. But while the Supreme Court correctly recognized that it would be entirely appropriate to include citizenship questions on the census, it nevertheless held that the Commerce Department did not adequately explain its decisions for doing so on the 2020 census. Because, as the Supreme Court recognized, the defect in the commerce department’s decision was curable with a better record, the president asked me to work with Secretary Ross to determine whether there remained a viable path for including a citizenship question on the census. I did so.

In my view, the government has ample justification to inquire about citizenship status on the census and could plainly provide rationales for doing so that would satisfy the Supreme Court. And there–therefore, there is no question that a new decision to add the question would ultimately survive legal review. The problem is that any new decision would be subject to immediate challenge as a new claim in the three ongoing district court cases.

In addition, there are injunctions currently in place that forbid adding the question. There is simply no way to litigate these issues and obtain relief from the current injunctions in time to implement any new decision without jeopardizing our ability to carry out the census, which we are not going to do. We’re not going to jeopardize our ability to carry out the census. So as a practical matter, the Supreme Court’s decision closed all paths to adding the question to the 2020 Census. Put simply, the impediment was not–was a logistical impediment, not a legal one. We simply cannot complete the litigation in time to carry out the census.

One other point on this, some in the media have been suggesting in the hysterical mode of the day that the administration has been planning to add the citizenship question to the census by executive fiat without regard to contrary court orders or what the Supreme Court might say. This has been based on rank speculation and nothing more. As it should be obvious, there has never been under–this has never been under consideration. We have always accepted that any new decision to add a Census–citizenship question to the census would be subject to judicial review.

Turning to today, I applaud the president for recognizing and his executive order that including a question on the census is not the only way to obtain this vital information. The course the president has chosen today will bring unprecedented resources to–to bear on determining how many citizens and noncitizens are in our country and will yield the best data the government has had on citizenship in many decades. That information will be used for countless purposes as the president explained in his remarks today.

For example, there is a current dispute over whether illegal aliens can be included for apportionment purposes. Depending on the resolution of that dispute, this data may be relevant to those considerations. We will be studying this issue. Congratulations again, Mr. President, on taking this effective action.

Fascistic Washington Post Support for Fascist ANTIFA Violence!

WASHINGTON POST SHILLS FOR ANTIFA

by Paul Mirengoff   at PowerLine:

Here is the opening paragraph of the Washington Post’s account of a rally by a group called Proud Boys protesting the exclusion of some activists from social media:

Hundreds of D.C. police officers descended on the area around Washington’s Freedom Plaza on Saturday, preventing antifascists from clashing with right-wing demonstrators during dueling rallies near the White House.

Who were these “antifascists”?

Police on bicycles and on foot quickly broke up skirmishes and prevented black-clad, hooded leftist antifascists, known as antifa, from erecting barricades in streets with toppled newspaper boxes and chairs.

(Emphasis added)

What is the Post’s basis for telling its readers that Antifa, thugs who go around beating up people whose views they disagree with, is antifascist? It’s probably the fact that the Post also disagrees with the views of those whom these leftist thugs beat up.

It’s true that Antifa claims to be antifascist. But surely the Post, chock full of crack, truth-seeking journalists, isn’t taking Antifa’s word for it.

Donald Trump says he’s making America great again. The Post doesn’t parrot that claim. Why does it parrot the claim of hooded goons that they are antifascist? Again, it’s probably because the Post thinks Antifa, if not exactly on its side, is at least the enemy of its enemies.

It took four Post reporters — Peter Hermann, Peter Jamison, Hannah Natanson, and Clarence Williams — to crank out this pedestrian story, which runs only a little over two dozen paragraphs. Which of these ace reporters decided to buy Antifa’s marketing of itself as an antifascist organization? Maybe it was a collective decision. Or maybe they simply followed an editorial decision made by the Post’s brass.

Speaking of marketing, it’s shocking that a newspaper that markets itself through the slogan “democracy dies in darkness” applies a heroic description to a gang whose criminal behavior constitutes a head-on threat to free speech and, therefore, democracy.

Shocking, but not surprising, given that the newspaper in question is the Washington Post.

Dems Decide to Allow Passage of Immigration Bill

Bow Down, Pelosi: House Speaker Caves To Senate GOP On Immigration Bill

by Matt Vespa  at Townhall:

UPDATE: Trump Wins, House will pass the Senate-backed and totally bipartisan immigration bill

House PASSES Senate’s version of the $4.59 billion border supplemental, 305-102, sending it to President Trump’s desk for his signature.

View image on Twitter

Border aid bill, already passed by the Senate, secures enough House votes for passage

The House passed a $4.6 billion emergency spending bill for the humanitarian crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, after Democratic leaders scrapped efforts to amend the legislation to add more restrictions on the Trump administration.

The vote was 305-to-102 Thursday and the legislation heads to President Trump, who is expected to sign it, since the Senate already passed the bill earlier in the week. The measure will pump billions into the budgets of agencies, including the Health and Human Services Department, that have been overwhelmed by the influx of Central American migrants at the Southern border.

***

When this is all said and done, the liberal media and their Democratic allies need to endure a brutal and bloody lashing. The manufactured crisis at the border was real. Gee—the president has only been saying that for weeks. The Department of Homeland Security has said they were running out of money dealing with the horde of migrants storming the border. We all said this was happening and yet, Democrats thought this was a figment of Trump and conservative America’s imagination. Wrong. They were dead wrong. And it was only after bodies started to stack and children were left destitute thanks to Democratic intransigence on border security funding that they decided to realize that this actually a problem. You people caused this—all of it. And you will be made to remember it soon, you negligent, hypocritical morons.

The House passed an immigration bill that was straight trash. Yes, it provided $4.6 billion in aid, but came with strings attached to it that hampered immigration enforcement. The Senate rolled out their package. It was bipartisan. It provided the money needed. And it was grounded in reality concerning passage. At face value, a showdown was possible. That’s not the case. Pelosi caved (via Politico):

Speaker Nancy Pelosi moved toward voting on the Senate’s border aid bill Thursday afternoon, capping four days of havoc amid a contentious debate within the House Democratic caucus over how to respond to the mounting humanitarian crisis.

In a stunning reversal, Pelosi halted a planned vote on the House Democrats’ version of the border aid bill as she and her deputies faced a revolt by a group of more than 18 Democratic centrists, who vowed to tank the bill on the floor.

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), a lead negotiator in the talks, emerged from an emergency leadership meeting in Pelosi’s office and said the House would take up a clean version of the Senate’s bill — bowing to pressure from their party’s moderates and Republicans.

“My understanding is we’re going to do a clean Senate bill. I’ve been saying I’m OK on that,” Cuellar said. “A lot of this stuff is already there guys, protocols are there,” he added, pointing to a summary of the Senate bill.

[…]

House Democrats unveiled the new package overnight, which adds several Democratic provisions to the Senate’s $4.6 billion bill aimed at addressing the sprawling humanitarian crisis at the border. The additions — many of which come from the House’s competing legislation — would place additional restrictions on how the administration may spend the money and specify basic standards of care for the thousands of migrant children being held at the border, many in reportedly horrific conditions.

But a Trump administration official said early Thursday that the administration will oppose the House bill over the new policy additions — and without the promise of President Donald Trump’s signature it’s unlikely to attract the support of House and Senate Republicans. The official said the bill would lead to the closure of “already overwhelmed border facilities.”

Multiple Democratic moderates have raised their objections directly to the House leadership, specifically criticizing a move to reduce funding for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, compared to the Senate version. The tweak has been praised by many progressives, who have long sought to rein in ICE. But moderates, particularly in vulnerable seats, point out that it would amount to a cut from key programs like combating human trafficking.

The battle is over and Trump won. Conditions at some of these detention centers were said to be horrendous due to Democrats refusal to work with the White House on anything. Diapers, soap, and other basic supplies were reportedly in desperate need. One thing is for sure is that the anti-ICE wing of the Democratic Party is probably not going to be happy over this concession. Correction: they’ll probably have a meltdown.

Hinderaker and Owens….REAL AMERICANS!

CANDACE OWENS AND ME

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

As assiduous readers know, I am a big fan of Candace Owens. I think she is one of the most important people in the United States, perhaps second only to President Trump. Three weeks ago, Candace headlined Center of the American Experiment’s Annual Dinner. I wrote about it here. Nine days ago, I posted five brief video clips from Candace’s excellent speech. After she talked for a half hour, I joined her on the stage and asked some questions, after which we opened it up to questions from the audience of 940 or so. I am now getting around to posting short clips of that colloquy between Candace and me. They are interesting, I think, and have some entertainment value, too.

Why is Candace so effective? It has to do with focusing on culture:

Candace is visibly happy. How do happiness and unhappiness relate to Right vs. Left?

Candace is probably the second most attacked person in the U.S., after Donald Trump. How does she deal with the hate that the Left showers on her, day after day?

Recently Candace testified before the House Judiciary Committee. Her testimony went viral, and is the most-watched segment on CSPAN ever. What was it like?

Is Owens interested in running for office? Maybe she could follow in the footsteps of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez…

I ask Candace to describe the Blexit rallies on which she is now focusing most of her attention:

Finally, my favorite: I ask Candace what she does for fun. She is getting married in August, and we talk about her fiancé’s idea of a good time–hunting wolves in Serbia with eagles. Seriously:

When Candace Owens burst on the scene a year and a half ago or so, I wondered whether she could take the heat. Pressures on prominent black conservatives are almost unimaginable. But she is a knowledgeable, fearless conservative who will, I am convinced, stay the course. In person, she is delightful. I hope you get a sense of that from these brief clips.
