CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront panel re-introduced a time-tested strategy to divide President Donald Trump from one of his top advisers: in this case, White House “immigration guru” Stephen Miller.
President Trump’s threat to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities has alarmed the mainstream media, which places responsibility for the threat with Miller. So Burnett showed a clip of Trump praising Miller but adding that he, Trump, is the one running policy.
CNN contributor April Ryan laid out the Democrat talking point.
“We’ve seen the president’s reaction when people get too much attention for issues. Like Steve Bannon. Remember him? He’s now out of the White House. So, um, if I were Stephen Miller I would tread lightly as I craft the immigration policies that this president is doing that’s breaking the rule of law in this nation. It’s Stephen Miller. It is Stephen Miller. It is Stephen Miller,” Ryan said.
This strategy — to use the media to pit Trump against his adviser — is likely to fail, because Trump trusts Miller profoundly and no one can upstage Trump, who is the Commander in Chief in addition to being the most famous man in the world.
Miller is not known for seizing the spotlight, which is unfortunate for the administration because every time he goes on a Sunday show or holds a rare press conference — like his smackdown of Jim Acosta in the White House — he manages to powerfully articulate the White House’s policy positions.
White House adviser Stephen Miller is finally taking charge of the Trump administration’s immigration priorities as Kirstjen Nielsen, General John Kelly’s former aide, resigned from the top post at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Border hawk Kris Kobach is seen as a leading contender to replace Nielsen as Miller consolidates his grip on the border crisis. But Kobach could also be relegated to an invented “border czar” role with unclear duties. The United States is currently under invasion, with George Soros money financing the invading caravan organizers. Ken Cuccinelli, an avowed NeverTrumper during Trump’s political rise, is also inexplicably being discussed as a candidate for a top border-related position.
A handful of DHS bureaucrats are following Nielsen out the door, as well as the director of the Secret Service, whom Trump personally ordered gone.
“Replacing the USSS director signals that immigration hardliner Stephen Miller is gaining more leverage in the White House,” the Daily Mail reports.
Good. Miller is not only a poetic speechwriter for President Trump, but also one of the few Trump administration officials who exist mostly outside of the incompetent bureaucracy displayed by the large majority of the American government.
Will the administration begin to catch up to Miller on the defining issue of our time: the globalist Left’s plan to break our country with mass immigration and constant invasion of the homeland?
Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
