Leftists use sexist smear against Ambassador Haley
The first time I saw the smear was a tweet from leftist mouthpiece Logan Smith - who is the Communications Director for ProgressNow NC.
The allegation is that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was sleeping with President Donald Trump.
Logan has since deleted his original tweet.
No apology. No explanation.
Just deleted it. Like a coward.
But you can see he did not delete the photo, though.
Much like a serial killer keeps trophies of his victims allowing him to relive his abusive behavior.
But I'm sure he just forgot to do so.
Nobody in the NC media called him out publicly for this sexist attack. But it's obvious that Ambassador Haley has heard the rumors being spread by the progressive Protectors Of Women. Link
Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations calls the chatter “highly offensive” and “disgusting,” the result of what happens far too often to strong women.
“But it goes to a bigger issue that we need to always be conscious of: At every point in my life, I’ve noticed that if you speak your mind and you’re strong about it and you say what you believe, there is a small percentage of people that resent that and the way they deal with it is to try and throw arrows, lies or not.”
Perhaps there's a curious reporter in the North Carolina press corp who might be interested to ask whether the Communications Director of a political activist organization is spreading sexist smears.
This is, after all, a press corps that worked with progressives to shut down the conservative website Carolina Plotthound - for linking to a blog post written by an antisemitic conspiracy theorist.
So, I'm sure they'll get right on this one.
Can we all be like Nevada? Link
In light of the NBA's "evolution" on the issue of gambling, I was looking at the Supreme Court case that could open gambling up across the nation. The court heard oral arguments in December.
WASHINGTON -- A majority of Supreme Court justices appeared to agree with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Monday that prohibiting sports betting in most states is unconstitutional.
With the outgoing governor seated in the front row, several of the court's conservative justices said a 1992 federal law impermissibly directed states to keep their bans on the books. They were joined by Justice Stephen Breyer, one of the court's four liberals.
"It falls within commandeering," Breyer told Paul Clement, the lawyer representing the NCAA and professional sports leagues who have sought to block New Jersey from legalizing sports betting.
It's estimated that Americans bet about $150 billion annually. And this case could clear the path for states to legalize and regulate gambling. A decision is expected some time around June.
Give us an immigration deal! (But not that one.)
After demanding the President engage in a discussion about how to reform the broken immigration system in the United States, the White House offered an outline. Link
President Trump is testing the loyalty of his most ardent conservative supporters, proposing a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million young immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children, while demanding that Democrats support $25 billion for border security, including his proposed border wall, and strict new limits on legal immigration.
The 1.8-million figure would go well beyond the nearly 700,000 immigrants currently covered by the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, expanding the protections primarily to cover people who were eligible for DACA but did not apply.
Axios reports that it's "Dead on arrival." Link
- The price is way too high for Democrats. The wall funding is way, way too high at $25 billion. A number closer to $10 billion is more realistic.
- The larger problems: The increase of ICE agents, faster deportations, stronger interior enforcement and the massive cuts to legal immigration by eliminating extended family migration.
- The bottom line: Two progressive immigration leaders who’ve analyzed the proposal believe it could lead to reductions of 40-50% in legal immigration — the biggest reductions since the 1920s.
Also, Breitbart.com is calling him "Amnesty Don."
Soooo... that was fun.
I guess we all go back to just yelling about illegal immigration now?
