Barstool’s Dave Portnoy Exposes AOC’s Fundraising Scheme

Published

on

BLP previously reported on Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy’s recent spat with numerous leftist activists on Twitter.

Portnoy gained controversy for criticizing his competitor The Ringer’s decision to unionize their staff. This drew a wave of Twitter outrage where left-wing journalists tried to sow discontent within Barstool Sports’ ranks and pressure Barstool workers into unionizing.

This Twitter squabble then pulled freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez into the fray. In a tweet she stated that Barstool Sports could be sued for its supposedly anti-union actions.

 

However, no concrete action had surfaced that day, although Portnoy did challenge AOC to a debate on union policies.

 

But on Wednesday, August 14,2019, Portnoy revealed that AOC tried to fundraise off of this incident.

In a tweet, he posted two snippets of images coming from AOC’s email in which she attempted to monetize her Twitter squabble with Barstool Sports and its president.

 

 

 

Portnoy saw through AOC’s ruse and exposed her Twitter drama as a way to fundraise.

The president of Barstool Sports said, “For anybody wondering real reason O’CRAZIO Cortez @AOC decided to get involved in something she knows nothing about yesterday it shouldn’t be surprising shes using @barstoolsports as excuse to milk people for donations. She won’t debate me but she won’t shut up about me either.”

Despite not being overtly political, Portnoy demonstrated great poise throughout this encounter with left-wing journalists and the upstart Congresswoman.

He shows the value of never bowing down to online outrage mobs.

President Trump: Best Pro-Life President Ever?

Published

on

Karen Cross, the Political Director for National Right to Life, praised President Donald Trump for his pro-life efforts during his administration.

At Life News, she wrote “President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.

Ever.”

The National Right to Life Committee endorsed president Trump’s re-election bid on July 4, 2019.

That day, Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, said:

“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”

One of the Trump administration’s first actions as president was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which bars tax funds from going to organizations that carry out abortions or lobby to bring pro-abortion laws to host countries. Trump followed up by expanding this policy to keep $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to bankroll the global abortion industry.

The Trump Administration also slashed funding to the United Nations Population Fund due to that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.

President Trump originally pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”

According to Cross, President Trump vowed to sign the following pro-life legislative items:

  • The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
  • The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
  • The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

The National Right to Life Political Director emphasized the importance of the 2020 elections. She stated that this election “will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.”

Having Republican control of the Senate will allow Trump to continue to nominate conservative judges.

So far, Trump has nominated 192 federal judges, which include U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were ultimately confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Having Nancy Pelosi out of the picture as House Speaker will allow for pro-life legislation to actually move out of the House.

All in all, pro-lifers’ best bet for any type of policy change will be for Republicans to gain control of all three branches of government.
