EXCLUSIVE: Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza Talks About Her White House Visit, Bashes Congress

Published

on

Mary Ann Mendoza, mother of a fatal victim of illegal immigration, expressed optimism for the border Wall effort after her presence Friday in President Donald Trump’s veto ceremony for Congress’ bill to block the Wall.

Mendoza’s son Brandon Mendoza, a Mesa, Arizona police officer, died in 2014 after an intoxicated illegal immigrant crashed head on into his police car. Mendoza is now an activist and advisory board member of www.WeBuildTheWall.us, which is backed by Steve Bannon and others and seeks to build as much wall as possible on private land on the border. Kris Kobach, who is rumored to be a candidate for Department of Homeland Security chief, also advises the group.

“It went incredible, we were all welcomed in there with the sheriffs and White House staff and whatnot, and we couldn’t have been more proud to be part of this occasion,” Mendoza told Big League Politics after exiting the Oval Office, where President Trump made his first-ever veto.

“It was a concerted effort, the president was there, the Vice President, the Kellyanne Conway, Mercedes Schlapp,” Mendoza said.

Mendoza is not too happy with Congress.

“This is why President Trump had to veto their decision because it was not in the best interest of the American people,” Mendoza said.

But there’s no way Congress can get a 2/3 majority to override President Trump’s veto, right?

“We believe that it will be smooth sailing from here,” Mendoza said.

“If our politicians would actually look into the standing national emergencies still in place, and nobody put up a fuss about those, but they put up a fuss about the security of the United States?”

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
