Remember When Democrats Said There Was No Crisis At the Border A Few Months Ago? Now There is One, They Say.

Crisis or no crisis? Democrats can’t seem to make up their mind.

Chronicled by a few right-wing Twitter pundits, there has been a complete 180 degree flip flop by leftist politicians and their media ilk about whether there actually is a humanitarian crisis at the U.S. Southern border.

Recall that from January to March, President Donald J. Trump was trying to secure funding – first via the legislature, then through declaring a national emergency and using executive branch money – for what he described as a crisis at the border. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) agreed with the president, highlighting the human cost of the migration crisis on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. Polls even showed that Americans recognized a crisis at the border.

But that was a few months ago, when the Democrats needed a political win and wanted to block Trump from building a border wall by any means necessary. They swore up and down that there was crisis at the border. They said it was “manufactured” by the Trump administration.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) claimed just that.

“Most presidents have used Oval Office addresses for noble purposes,” Schumer said. “This president just used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration.”

But ever since Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) began shouting about “concentration camps” last week, referring to migrant holding facilities, the crisis that Trump was talking about has apparently become very real.

Stephen Miller noted Daily Beast “reporter” Sam Stein’s hypocrisy.

“There’s no actual crisis at the border,” Stein said in February.

Wednesday Stein posted a photo of dead two bodies, face down at the border – casualties of that crisis that was not a crisis a few months ago.

Similarly, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has effortlessly flip-flopped, as noted by Twitter user @neontaster.

“So Elizabeth Warren says she went to the border in June 2018 and saw a humanitarian crisis, but then in March 2019 she tweeted that the border crisis was fake,” he said, posting Tweets of Warren’s side-by-side to prove his point.

Pelosi, who can always be counted upon to exploit any situation for political gain, also turned on a dime.

“Trump’s failed policies have exacerbated the situation at the border, where children endure inhumane conditions on a daily basis. This week, the House will advance legislation to protect families & fund effective, humane alternatives to detention,” she said on Twitter, months after denying Trump funding to do just that.

Medical Examiner: ‘No Physical Findings’ of ‘Traumatic Asphyxia or Strangulation’ in George Floyd’s Death

This may come up as crucial during the trial.

Published

on

A medical examiner who examined the body of George Floyd, who was killed during an encounter with police earlier this month, has determined that there are “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation.”

“Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death,” the Hennepin County Medical Examiner determined in their report.

Floyd’s family has called for an independent autopsy of his body by a medical examiner to build the case against former Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin, the officer who appeared to hold his knee against the throat of Floyd during an encounter shortly before his death.

“We’ve just spoken recently with district attorney. We’re going to take custody back of George Floyd’s body, and we’re bringing in Dr. Michael Baden to perform an independent autopsy because we saw in the Eric Garner case and so many other cases where they have these people who work with the city come up with things that are such an illusion,” said family attorney Benjamin Crump, a prominent attorney known to take cases with racial implications.

“They’re going to have their own autopsy,” Crump said of Floyd’s relatives. “We’re not going to rely on this DA or this city to tell us the truth. We already saw the truth.”

Crump is inferring a possible conspiracy between law enforcement and the medical examiner in the hopes of getting Chauvin off from his criminal charges.

“We don’t want to begin to speculate about what their narrative is,” he said, cautioning it could be something like, “You didn’t know he had a heart condition?” or, “Oh, he had asthma.”

Forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, who performed the autopsy of deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that determined evident foul play, is expected to perform the second autopsy on Floyd’s body.

“I’m awaiting their call to make the arrangements,” Dr. Baden said over the phone. “I would go to Minneapolis.”

The city of Minneapolis is on fire because of the response to Floyd’s death, and rioters have laid the city to waste:

Even though Chauvin has been charged with manslaughter and third-degree murder, the riots are continuing. If Chauvin is somehow exonerated in the court of law by a jury of his own peers, there will certainly be more senseless destruction. Rule by violent mob is replacing the rule of law in a diverse and multicultural America.
