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?
Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
