In a stunning display of bravery, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is now calling for an increase to the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour, outdoing her fellow Democrats who only want a meager increase to $15 per hour.
While delivering a speech before One Fair Wage, a political organization lobbying for an increase to the federal minimum wage, Tlaib went further than virtually all of her fellow Democrats by demanding an even higher increase to the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour.
Tlaib began by discussing the hardships of those who rely on income earned via tips, “People cannot live on those kinds of wages, and we can’t allow people to be living off of tips, you know, tips wages, or whatever they call it, tips income,” before going on to address a $20 minimum wage.
“Big fights like this one, $15 dollars, by the way when we started it it should have been $15. Now I think it should be $20 to make sure we have a rise,” said Tlaib. “No, it should be $20 an hour, $18 to $20 an hour at this point.”
Tlaib went on to show her complete ignorance of economics, suggesting that costs have already gone up, and thus raising the minimum wage will have no impact on the economy.
“Because everything, all the costs, they say all this is going to raise the cost,” said Tlaib. She went on, rambling, “But I can tell you, milk has gone up, milk has gone up, the cost of everything has gone up, the cost of food has gone up, the cost of a lot of things that we need has gone up already.”

It should be noted that Tlaib’s attempt to justify a minimum wage increase due to the price of milk is highly problematic. As many respectable left-wing media outlets have detailed, there are startling links between dairy consumption and white supremacy.
While Tlaib’s economic paradise may seem to be just around the corner, real life may prove her plan to be as fanciful as it seems.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) recently showed the world what an increase to the federal minimum wage might look like, when at the behest of those working on his presidential campaign, he raised their minimum wage to $15 per hour and then immediately cut their hours.
For the last weeks, Sanders’s campaign has been rocked with allegations of unfair pay, as the Democrat presidential candidate running on a platform of raising the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour has been paying much of his campaign staff less than the coveted hourly amount.
To accommodate his campaign workers’ request, Sanders relented, and gave them a $15 wage. However, in order to afford such an increase, Sanders had to severely cut back the number of hours each campaign worker is allowed to put into the fledgling presidential campaign.
It appears Democrats will continue to wander further astray from reality as they attempt to outdo each other in the Stunning and Brave department.
Husband of Los Angeles Prosecutor Jackie Lacey Charged with Assaulting Black Lives Matter Protestors
David Lacey pulled a gun on BLM protestors.
The husband of Democratic Los Angeles County prosecutor Jackie Lacey is being charged with three misdemeanors stemming from his armed confrontation of several Black Lives Matter protestors who arrived at his house to demand a “community meeting” with Lacey .
The charging documents were obtained by Politico and published on Tuesday. Xavier Becerra, the California Attorney General, is charging David Lacey with three misdemeanor counts of assault with a firearm against three people.
I’m front of DA Jackie Lacey’s house for that community meeting she promised with the @BLMLA crew. Rang her bell to invite her.

David Lacey showed exceptionally poor judgement during the incident, confronting the Los Angeles BLM protestors with his finger on the trigger of a firearm. The protestors don’t appear to have been engaging in illegal activity- it’s legal to solicit most residences through ringing on the doorbell if you aren’t asked to leave, although the protestors remained after David Lacey told them to “get off of my porch.”
David Lacey’s attorney, Samuel Tyre, released a statement expressing his disapproval that Becerra chose to file cirminal charges in the incident.
“My client and I are disappointed that the Attorney General’s Office felt that the conduct at issue amounted to criminal behavior. We disagree entirely with their assessment, but we have the utmost faith in the justice system, and we are confident that the correct result will be reached.
At this time we are not going to comment on the facts of the case, except to say that my client’s human instinct is forever and always to protect his wife and his family and to keep them safe from physical harm. We look forward to all relevant facts coming to light.”
Elected officials of Democratic cities and communities seem entirely inept at responding to criticism of their leadership from Black Lives Matter.
