Flashback: Pelosi claims Supremes did ‘violence to our democracy’

 

Shall we do a Flashback and whatever happened to thug AFL-CIO Richard Trumka? He appears along side Pelosi as she now claims the Supremes are a “violent” sort of thing. So first let’s watch Nancy gin up the crowd and now we know what is ahead of us for one long hot summer. Trumka back in action.

 

Thursday at a press conference, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the Supreme Court’s decision on Janus v. AFSCME, which struck down laws requiring government workers to pay union fees, was “violence to our democracy.”

Pelosi said, “Now, yesterday, they did violence to our democracy by trying to diminish the voices of working people.”

She continued, “That’s not the American way. Their decision does violence to the First Amendment.”

The “Tell” is that she is appearing with AFL-CIO Richard Trumka – let’s do a flashback then.

 

 

AFL-CIO Richard Trumka and the Murder of Eddie York

 

…snip

Take the murder of Eddie York, a nonunion contractor, who was shot in the back of the head and killed while leaving a worksite in 1993. Trumka and other UMW officials were charged in a $27 million wrongful death suit by Eddie York’s widow. After fighting the suit intensely for four years, UMW lawyers settled suddenly in 1997 — just two days after the judge in the case ruled evidence in the criminal trial would be admitted.

Later, as Secretary-Treasurer of the AFL-CIO, Trumka pleaded the Fifth Amendment before Congress and a court-appointed election monitor over his role in an illegal fundraising scheme to benefit the Teamsters president Ron Carey’s re-election. Trumka has remained in his position ever since despite an AFL-CIO rule (adopted in 1957) which held that union officials who plead the Fifth have “no right to continue to hold office” in the union umbrella organization.

Flashback to 2009. Nancy had a different view regarding rhetoric didn’t she, as we sucked it up with Obama and his policies.

 

 

A comment made on the clip:

Published on Sep 18, 2009
“The Speaker is now likening genuine opposition to assassination. Such insulting rhetoric not only undermines the credibility of her office, but it underscores the desperate attempt by her party to divert attention away from a failing agenda. During one of the most important policy debates of our time, the American people have been completely abandoned by those elected representatives under her control. Voters are justifiably frustrated with Washington, and the Speaker’s verbal assault on voters accomplishes nothing other than furthering her reputation for being wildly out of touch with the American people.” I saw this and had to post it..Where were all her concerns when Bush was in office?..Movies were made about his death. He was called a liar, Hitler, a murderer, dumb, war monger, ect. I guess when it comes to liberals like this moron, dissent against big government is “Racist and un-American”..but its ok when the left does it. When ever the left had there war protests, at least 100-200 people were arrested because of violent actions on their part. At the “Tea Parties” do you know how many arrests were made?….Zero. Nancy, do us all a favor and shut yer pie-hole…

Ca Dems trys to pass law against “fake news” creates Ministry of Truth

 

For some reason I don’t think this will end well. We already have “censors” concerning social media. Now California wants to legislate the truth and chose who does this? The left has been working on this for years. They never rest.

“California’s version of the Ministry of Truth isn’t forward-thinking, it’s akin to something out of George Orwell’s dystopian novel, “1984.”

 

Earlier in February I posted this:

Southern Poverty Law Center secretly policing content for YouTube

The Southern Poverty Law Center is assisting YouTube in policing content on their platform, The Daily Caller has learned.

The left-wing nonprofit — which has more recently come under fire for labeling legitimate conservative organizations as “hate groups” — is one of the more than 100 nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and government agencies in YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” program, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told TheDC.

Patriot Groups marked as Hate Groups by Southern Poverty Law Center

Danger from the Patriots! LA Times warns U.S.

 

Too Orwellian to even think about. Let’s legislate this:

One of the latest legislative proposals from California aims to make government the arbiter of truth.

Senate Bill 1424 would create an advisory group on “fake news” to work with social media companies to weed out what the government deems incorrect information on the internet.

This legislation, if passed, would require California’s attorney general to create the group, consisting of “social media providers, civil liberties advocates, and First Amendment scholars,” to study and mitigate the problem of spreading false information.

According to CBS Sacramento, even the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a left-leaning nonprofit civil liberties organization, called the legislation “flawed” and “misguided.”

This bill mirrors the trend in Europe, where government commissions to police speech and the news are becoming common.

California, emboldened by a stridently progressive Legislature, is trying to bring these Orwellian fake news panels to the United States.

What Dems got with the surprise election of Comrade Ocasio-Cortez

 

So from the cesspool of foreign soil come our neighbors from the South. Bringing their virus of social unrest to the land of opportunity. Once here, they prosper. In return for our hospitality that comes in the form of healthcare, education, living expenses such as housing and food, their virus of social unrest re-emerges.

Not content with the success at life they now have, they turn on their benefactor. They would have their host destroyed. The very system of government that gave them so much must be overturned. They would have America turn into the very cesspool they chose to escape.

Without further adieu let’s look at this number coming out of the overturn in New York of a long-term Democrat Crowley.

So just what is a Democratic Socialist? How and why are they permitted to run on the Democrat party label? The Democrats need to have a serious moment of self-reflection I doubt had she been required to run on the Democrat label she would have gotten as far as she has. If the media had made any effort to reveal her extreme viewpoints, I wonder as well.

Cortez will now be pushed to the head of the political line. Just as they have this Kamela Harris and Linda Sarsour – more blight on the horizon. Stay tuned. You will see much of her.

 

The Democratic Socialists of America of coming for your property. Here are Comrade Cortez’s views on the issues.

 

 

 

DSA Where we stand

 

I took just one smidgen out of their manifesto- check out the full thing:

 

What about her pals? – warning, really foul stuff if you link out to the Caller.

The platform Ocasio-Cortez ran on was deeply progressive, calling on the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, nationalized health care, universal jobs guarantee and getting America to 100 percent green energy.

However, footage reveals that Ocasio-Cortez also has associates with regressive views.

One of Ocasio-Cortez’s most enthusiastic campaigners and a man who stood behind her at her victory party, Thomas Lopez-Pierre, is a known anti-Semite and racist. Lopez-Pierre has regularly used slurs against Jewish and black New Yorkers in public forums and while running for office himself.

While running for office in 2017, Lopez-Pierre specifically campaigned on “protecting tenants from greedy Jewish landlords.” Lopez-Pierre’s own campaign website shows his rantings agains “Greedy Jewish Landlords.” His campaign website applauds the arrest of “Greedy Jewish Landlords” and says that “Jewish Landlords” are “punishing” black and Hispanic families.

Yes, start of a movement:

 

Ellison cries – Tapper unfair ‘putting him on the spot’ over Farrakhan

Jake Tapper must have taken his bravery pills. He takes on Keith Ellison and his ties with Farrakhan. Better yet, points out that Obama had a so-called “Muslim Ban” as well. A delicious video well worth the watch as well as a clip of Ellison with Farrakhan.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, argued with CNN’s Jake Tapper Tuesday about his prior connection to Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan.

Ellison termed President Donald Trump a bigot in response to CNN anchor Jake Tapper’s question about whether travel bans targeting Muslim majority countries during the Obama administration were problematic. Ellison said the Supreme Court should not have ignored bigoted intent in ruling against Trump’s travel ban, leading Tapper to ask about Ellison’s own connection with Farrakhan, a notorious bigot.

“You’ve been decrying president Trump’s bigotry; obviously, you used to follow somebody who continually expressed sexist, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-Semitic bigotry, Louis Farrakhan—”

He went on to explain that he has denounced Farrakhan but he was not associated with him, contradicting the Washington Post’s fact check on the matter.”I would disagree with that,” Ellison interjected. He went on to explain that he has denounced Farrakhan but he was not associated with him, contradicting the Washington Post’s fact check on the matter.

Ellison continued to talk over Tapper and prevent him from asking his question, saying he had no right to bring up Farrakhan and set up a “false equivalency” with Trump. More at Free Beacon

For a refresher keep in mind he is knee-deep as well with the Muslim Brotherhood. He doesn’t know anything about anything now does he?

Liar Keith Ellison:’I don’t know a thing about the Muslim Brotherhood’

….Rewind to 2008 when Keith Ellison went on a 16-day hajj trip to Saudi Arabia paid for by the Muslim American Society (MAS) to the tune of $13,500.

But a mountain of evidence of his contacts with and support of Muslim Brotherhood front groups – identified as such by the U.S. Government – shows that the Muslim Brotherhood definitely knows who he is.

Johari Abdul-Malik, then director at Dar Al Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia, uploaded a YouTube video in 2013 that shows Ellison casually chatting among a crowd of men, including Farrakhan. The video is short — just 28 seconds —- but what it shows is indisputable: Ellison comfortably socializing in the same group as Farrakhan, decades after Ellison supposedly cut ties with him.

Jake Tapper interview:

Jeff Flake blocks judicial nominees over tariffs

 

Jeff Flake has been threatening approval of judicial candidates over everything from Cuba travel to tariffs. Jeff has been a busy man, making is rounds dissing Trump every chance he can over just about everything and anything while we haven’t been paying attention. Apparently he can block nominees and the GOP are going to let him do it.

 

 

Sen. Jeff Flake has gone public with his threat to stall judicial nominations seeking action to rebuff President Donald Trump on tariffs.

It comes more than a week after the Arizona Republican first held up the nomination of Britt Grant to be a judge on the Atlanta-based 11th Circuit Court of Appeals at the Judiciary Committee.

“We’ve approved a number of judges. That is important,” Flake said Sunday. “But, Article I — the Congress, Article II — the executive, are important as well.”

“I do think that unless we can actually do something other than just approving the president’s executive calendar, his nominees, judges, that we have no reason to be there,” Flake said. “So, I think myself and a number of senators, at least a few of us will stand up and say let’s not move any more judges until we get a vote for example on tariffs.”

Flake was asked about his procedural maneuvering  during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, during which he was more direct than he was with reporters last week. The senator had been particularly vague about the nature of his objections.

Snip….

The only other circuit seat on the agenda Thursday was the nomination of David Porter for the Philadelphia-based appeals court. Porter was appearing for the first time, and the nomination was being held over for the customary one week. Given Flake’s public statements on ABC, Porter will likely be stalled as well.

Obama separated 72,410 children from their illegal immigrant parents

 

Of course you will never see this in the MSM. Of course not. One can only wonder after this kerfuffle dies down, what more does the Left have at the ready to energize their base? It’s amazing isn’t it. Just as the IG report and hearings were happening, this just rose to the top of the food chain news by the media. In perfect lock step. I will add the legal justification, or lack thereof of AG Eric Holder on the taking of the Gonzalez child at gunpoint to return him to Cuba.

 

AG Holder doing a little deporting of a child

 

In 2013 Barack Obama separated 72,410 children from their illegal immigrant parents who were deported.

The Huffington Post reported:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement last year carried out more than 72,000 deportations of parents who said they had U.S.-born children, according to reports to Congress obtained Wednesday by The Huffington Post.

The reports were sent by ICE in April to the Senate Appropriations Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee, as required by law. ICE confirmed the authenticity of the two reports, which lay out 72,410 removals of immigrants who said they had one or more U.S.-born children in 2013.

The reports show that even parents of U.S. citizens are among the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants being expelled from the United States each year…

… When a parent is deported, their U.S.-born children sometimes leave with them. But some stay in the U.S. with another parent or family member. Some children end up in U.S. foster care. H/T: Gateway Pundit

I give you this flash back:

Eric Holder dispensed with Elian Gonzalez, not so much our new ‘refugees’

 

……Even as the mace dispersed and Elian’s legal custodians sought medical help for their injuries, Fox News’ Andrew Napolitano already had Eric Holder’s number:

“Tell me, Mr. Holder,” Napolitano asked on April 23, 2000, “why did you not get a court order authorizing you to go in and get the boy (Elian Gonzalez)?”

Holder: Because we didn’t need a court order. INS can do this on its own.

Napolitano: You know that a court order would have given you the cloak of respectability to seize the boy?

Holder: We didn’t need an order.

Napolitano: Then why did you ask the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals for such an order if you didn’t need one?

Holder: [Silence]

Napolitano: The fact is, for the first time in history you have taken a child from his residence at gunpoint to enforce your custody position, even though you did not have an order authorizing it. When is the last time a boy, a child, was taken at the point of a gun without an order of a judge? Unprecedented in American history.

Holder: He was not taken at the point of a gun.

Napolitano: We have a photograph showing he was taken at the point of a gun.

Holder: They were armed agents who went in there who acted very sensitively…

The nature of this “sensitivity” I’ve already mentioned, including the number injured by the mace, gun-butts, and jackboots. Thanks to the ritual MSM-Castroite collusion, most people forget (or missed) the crucial legal and ethical details of the Elian circus/tragedy — which were mostly established during the first week after the boy’s rescue at sea, after his mother’s drowning.

 

Sunday Respite – Forgotten Dreams

 

For today’s respite I chose another Leroy Anderson piece.

Here  presented is “Forgotten Dreams” by Leroy Anderson, written in 1954. The music conjures up summers in the English countryside.

You may enjoy watching the video in full screen. Wishing everyone a wonderful day.
