CNN Reporter Puts President Trump in Sniper Crosshairs

Published

on

A CNN reporter tweeted a picture of President Donald J. Trump this afternoon that has violent undertones.

“Donald Trump, pointing to heavens to commemorate police officers killed in the line of duty,” wrote known Trump-hater Chris Collizza in a now-deleted tweet.

The tweet appears to be poking fun at Trump for believing in a higher power, which fits the radical left’s anti-God agenda.

But more noticeably, the gif image appears to show Trump in the center of crosshairs, which Twitter users immediately pointed out.

Is Cillizza simply tone-deaf, or was he making a subtle call for violence against Trump? Neither is surprising from a CNN employee.

Threats of violence against the President and other Republican politicians are a daily occurrence from the radical left, especially online where many have threatened the lives of elected officials.

It appears he has deleted the tweet after leaving it up for hours, but of course we captured it for you:

Some of the left’s culture of violence has materialized.

In October, James Hodgkinson, a Bernie Sanders supporter from Illinois opened fire on Republican congressmen at an intramural baseball practice. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) nearly died from his wounds, and spent months in the hospital. Hodgkinson died after a shootout with police.

In November, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was attacked by his neighbor on his own lawn. Rene Boucher, another leftist, charged Paul and bulldozed him, breaking six of Paul’s ribs and causing a pleural effusion. Boucher pled guilty and prosecutors are seeking a 21 month sentence for his heinous act.

Antifa, the radical anarcho-communist group has been responsible for riots in hundreds of American cities, causing millions of dollars in property damage and occasionally violently injuring right-wing counter-protestors.

With the top talking heads in cable news implying violence towards the President, it is no wonder there is a culture of violence against Republicans in America.

New Gallup Poll Shows Immigration Tops Most Important Problem List

Published

on

When Americans were asked what they feel is the most important problem facing the nation, immigration topped the list for just the second time in Gallup’s history. The top issue each month since January of 2017 has been the government, but immigration has just replaced its position according to a new Gallup poll.

When asked the same question in June, immigration ranked at 14% when Gallup asked Americans what’s the “most important problem” the nation faces. It jumped from 14% to 22% from June to July 2018.

Each month, Gallup asks the same question and the answer of immigration has always averaged 5% over the 17 years Gallup has included it in their polls. So why the sudden jump from 14% to 22%?

The past several weeks social media and news outlets alike have focused on the issue of separating families at the border with President Trump’s stance on immigration and his modified policy that would keep families detained together (if detainment must occur) continuing to be a hot button issue.

Just last month, TIME ran the cover story, “A Reckoning After Trump’s Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We,” with the cover photo that was proven to be fake news. The cover showed a 2-year-old little girl crying while President Trump towers above her looking on as she wails. The cover read simply “Welcome to America.” The claim made by Time was that the little girl had been separated from her family at the border, but Yanela, daughter to Sandra Sanchez had never been separated from her mother at all. Sanchez and her daughter were arrested by Border Patrol agents under the zero tolerance policy that criminally charges anyone attempting to cross the border illegally, but at no point were they separated.

Every week immigration has remained in the news cycle, and continues to be an issue that is important to Americans. The Washington Examiner reported on Monday that The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who entered into the United States from Mexico illegally. The National Guard has also intercepted more than 3,300 others who were turned back at the border before crossing into the U.S., and have seized 11,686 pounds of marijuana.

In April of 2006, immigration reached 19% when Congress was working on passing a comprehensive immigration bill. During this time period, immigration protests popped up all across America and saturated the news cycle. The last spike, according to Gallup of immigration as the top problem was in 2014 when the news focused its attention on a large number of immigrants who were attempting to enter the U.S. from Central America.

The issue of immigration is important to Americans, but for starkly different reasons. Republicans are more concerned about potential crime, impacts on the nation’s economy, and jobs being taken away from native-born families. Democrats, in contrast, support a path to citizenship for the undocumented, but more over, they know that they need all the help they can get at the polls, with Trump’s base stronger than ever heading into the Midterms.

The Gallup poll is based on telephone interviews conducted July 1-11 with a random sample of 1,033 adults in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points and a 95 percent confidence level.
