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.

President Donald Trump Pledges to Nominate A Woman as Next Supreme Court Justice

It’s going to be a woman.

Published

on

President Trump revealed that he plans to nominate a woman as his next Supreme Court nominee during a rally on Saturday in North Carolina. The nominee, if confirmed, would replace longtime progressive judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who passed away on Friday.

Reports indicate that President Trump plans to announce the identity of a SCOTUS nominee on either Monday or Tuesday. He suggested as such during his North Carolina rally, confirming that the nominee would be a woman. The crowd could be heard chanting “fill that seat,” indicative of the strong desire among conservatives for President Trump to exercise his constitutional duties and advance a nominee.

Amy Coney Barrett and Barbara Lagoa are considered to be strong candidates to fill the nomination, with the former almost being picked in 2018 to fill the vacancy ultimately filled by Brett Kavanaugh. Barrett is reportedly considered a front-runner in the selection process.

President Trump also cited the constitutional basis for nominating a Supreme Court justice, pointing out that Article 2 of the Constitution placed the imperative upon him as President to do as such. Republicans control both the White House and the Senate, a crucial difference from the divided government of 2016 when President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland was blocked by the Senate.

Democrats are guaranteed to fight furiously to block the confirmation of any Supreme Court nominee advanced by President Trump, with Chuck Schumer himself saying that he wouldn’t accept the possibility of any new justices while Trump is in office, even if it’s during his second term.

Tentative confirmation proceedings, which will occur in the midst of the Presidential election, have the chance to make Brett Kavanaugh’s wild confirmation process look like a gingerly walk in the park.
