Dem Congressman: ‘I Am Calling For A Total And Complete Shutdown Of Teenagers Wearing MAGA Hats’

Published

Democrat congressman John Yarmuth from Kentucky, chairman of the House Budget Committee, joined in the national media and political-class pile-on of the Covington Catholic high school students after the viral video of their encounter with Native American activist Nathan Phillips at the March For Life.

Phillips confronted the Catholic high school students, who were wearing MAGA hats at the pro-life march. Since the video, the kids in question have been vilified in the mainstream media, faced with the threat of expulsion, doxxed, and subjected to violent threats.

Nevertheless, Congressman Yarmuth — who hails from the very same state as the vilified students — felt the need Sunday to deliver an unfunny and horrifying denunciation of the teenagers, and tie it into the ongoing Democrat conflict with President Donald Trump by mimicking the president’s past statement on the travel ban:

Big League Politics’ Richard Moorhead reported:

After the individual seen smiling in the now-discredited Covington Catholic hate hoax was falsely identified and doxxed as ‘Michael Hodge’ on Saturday, a member of the actual Hodge family has stepped forward to describe an onslaught of death threats and abuse directed towards the Ohio family.

Contrary to claims circulated within the context of a left-wing witch hunt for the ‘smirker,’ Michael Hodge (another Covington Catholic student) wasn’t even at the event in which the confrontation between Covington Catholic students and Nathan Phillips occurred. The actual identity of the so-called smirker has been confirmed by Big League Politics, and we are declining to publish it on the basis of privacy concerns.

Andrew Hodge, who is Michael’s older brother, took to Twitter to describe a torrent of abuse directed towards the entire Hodge family from incensed progressives and liberals who had been falsely led to believe that Michael confronted and harassed Nathan Phillips.

In the tweet thread, Hodge describes threatening messages sent from anonymous parties informing Hodge family aunts and uncles that “they won’t be able to protect #MichaelHodge forever.”

Outraged progressives also had tried to orchestrate a slander campaign with the hopes of derailing Michael’s career goals, after finding out that Michael had been accepted to a culinary college with the hopes of becoming a professional chef. They sought to convince the institution to rescind his admission.

One can only be relieved that the attempt to destroy the life of an unrelated bystander- on charges that have been revealed to be manufactured and dishonest- seems to have failed in the long run. Let’s hope future targets of online left-wing mobs are spared from the same sort of personal and career destruction.

Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

Another victory for the war party.

Published

Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.

The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.

The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.

“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.

“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.

“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”

The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.

“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.

“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.

The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
