BREAKING: Republican Rick Scott Wins Florida Senate Race by 10,000 Votes After Hand Recount – Nelson Concedes

Republican Rick Scott won the Florida Senatorial race against Bill Nelson by over 10,000 votes after a hand recount.

The Democrats did everything they could to steal Florida and still lost.

Associate Press reported:

Official results show Florida Gov. Rick Scott leading Bill Nelson in race for US Senate by more than 10,000 votes.

Official results posted by the state on Sunday showed Scott ahead of Nelson following legally-required hand and machine recounts. Nelson has scheduled an announcement for Sunday afternoon.

Elections supervisors, Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher pulled out all the stops for the Democrats and still couldn’t carry Bill Nelson and Andrew Gillum across the finish line.

As usual, Broward County and Palm Beach County were ground zero for election fraud.

Enterprise rent trucks full of ballots were seen rolling up in the dead of the night at the Broward County polling station on election night.

Up until Saturday, Broward County couldn’t get it together and the hand recount came to a grinding halt after lawyers realized the volunteers were counting the wrong ballots.

Brenda Snipes then admitted on Saturday that her county ‘misplaced’ over 2,000 ballots.

The GOP better take action and demand corrupt elections supervisors Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher be removed and investigated.

Democrat Senator Bill Nelson, who served three terms in the US Senate graciously conceded in a phone call to Rick Scott on Sunday, reported Fox News.

Voters Electing Democrats Who despise Them


Kyrsten Sinema might not be able to stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue, shoot someone, and lose no support, but she could and did insult the very voters she was trying to woo and be the next duly-elected senator from the Copper State.


The former Green Party gadfly and 9th Congressional District Representative has at last been declared the winner of Jeff Flake’s departed Senate seat. She’s the first Arizona Democrat to win a Senate election in 30 years.



She’s also the first high-profile politician that I know who spent decades mocking her own constituents as drug-addled nincompoops, only to, in the end, receive their backing. Sinema’s record of contempt for her own people is nonpareil. The way she openly and endlessly complains about the loons in her state is akin to an elderly crank who never stops complaining about the one time the cable company once tried to upcharge him for Showtime.



A big smile conceals a inner sneer? (US House photo [cropped])


On multiple occasions, Sinema has referred to her home state as “crazy,” a “meth lab for democracy,” and an accursed place no good ever emerges from. Not once, it seems, did she ever stop to think how this obloquy reflects on her: an Arizonan, after all. One is reminded of Flaubert’s classic quote: “By dint of railing at idiots, one runs the risk of becoming an idiot oneself.”


Despite her best attempts to shower voters with disdain, Sinema defeated her opponent, Martha McSally, a decorated war pilot with the distinction of being the first woman to ever fly a U.S. Air Force combat mission. Perhaps the self-loathing Arizonan was right this whole time: Arizonans went with the pink-tutu accoutered Taliban sympathizer over a distinguished veteran. Quite a fine accomplishment for a state previously represented by the late John McCain.


Sinema’s low opinion of Arizona was not hidden. She’s been an elected representative for years. But opposition researchers didn’t disseminate the incriminating clips far and wide until the Senate campaign. Voters knew of their existence. They elected Sinema anyway.


The episode is reminiscent of the scene in “All the King’s Men” where Broderick Crawford’s Willie Stark rants and raves at the crowd, calling them all dirt-poor hicks, but wins their affection anyway. Stark’s shtick works because he, too, is an ignorant hayseed, kept down by otherworldly forces beyond his control.


Sinema is different. Like most liberals, she believes her intellect to be far above the average, her tastes more refined than the crude proclivities of the masses.


Which gets to the paradoxical truth about many left-liberals running for public office: Often times, they despise the very people they’re entrusted with representing. In more extreme cases, they’re hostile to the society in which they assume a leading position.


Sineme isn’t the only Democrat with an abiding disgust for her constituents. London Lamar, who was just elected to the Tennessee State House, had to apologize for calling her state “racist” and Republicans “uneducated” in a Facebook video she posted after winning her uncontested race. There was Barack Obama’s infamous quip about bitter laid-off factory workers clinging to “guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them” to make up for their failures. And then there’s the supercilious ice queen herself, Hillary Clinton, decrying Trump’s “basket of deplorables.”


The incongruent dynamic — man or woman running for public office with unbridled scorn for the very electorate — is one of the ways in which pure democracy is left failing. What bigger mark of failure is there than a social system that creates the means for its own destruction?


The irony of liberals’ open derision of voters is that it results in the exact electoral outcomes they try to prevent. Donald Trump won the presidency based largely on courting a constituency fed up with condescending urbanites. The United Kingdom voted to leave the Europe Union out of sense of inferiority: too many Brits felt unappreciated by bureaucrats in Brussels.


“The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common national sentiment…and on the love of country,” Alexander Hamilton wrote. Countries don’t survive when their leaders contemn the very citizens who constitute them. And they certainly don’t last long when voters, knowing full well their negative estimation, elect politicians who deplore them anyway.

CNN’s Kirsten Powers: White Women Who Support Trump Are All ‘Racist’


CNN contributor Kirsten Powers declared on air Friday that all white females who supported President Donald Trump were “racist.”

Powers, referring to white females who support Trump, said, “They’ll say, ‘Well, I’m not racist. I just voted for him because, you know, I didn’t like Hillary Clinton. And I just want to say that that’s not–that doesn’t make you not racist. It actually makes you racist. If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist. So, I want to establish that.”

“As for why white women do it, I think we have to recognize that white men are doing it as well, but I think sometimes we would hope that we would get better behavior from white women, because white women are themselves oppressed and that they would, therefore, be able to be aligned themselves with other oppressed people,” Powers said.

She continued, “But, I think we have to remember that the white patriarchal system actually benefits white women in a lot of the ways, and they’re attached to white men, who are benefitting from the system that was created by them, for them and their fathers and their husbands and their brothers are benefitting from the system, and so they are also benefitting.”

While not offering her views on Trump-supporting white females, Powers can be caught giving lectures on the virtues of appropriate Halloween costumes:

Trump Unloads On ‘Absolutely Nuts’ Deep State Dirty Cop Bob Mueller


The surprise firing of absentee attorney general Jeff Sessions by President Trump last week sent Democrats and their neocon Never Trumper allies into a panic over the fate of deep state dirty cop Robert “Bob” Mueller and his endless fishing expedition.

The reaction to Sessions being given the bum’s rush shows that the hapless former senator was always in the bag in regard to Operation Get Trump and the appointment of his former deputy Matthew Whitaker as interim AG has resulted in howls for his recusal as well as emergency legislation to protect Mueller whose probe is nothing but a scam to come up with “evidence” that would lead to Trump’s impeachment.

On Thursday, Trump blew his stack over Mueller and the witch hunt and took to his weapons-grade Twitter feed to unleash a sustained burst against George W. Bush’s former FBI director:

Via The Daily Wire “Trump Goes Ballistic On Mueller: ‘Absolutely Nuts’”:

Donald Trump isn’t known for his restraint on social media, but his latest tweetstorm took his rhetoric against Robert Mueller to a new level, complete with all-caps denunciations, declarations that the special counsel has “gone completely nuts,” and predictions of how future generations will view the way Mueller and his “gang of Democrat thugs” have attempted to “destroy the people.”

“The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess,” Trump wrote in a series of tweets that got rolling Thursday morning. “They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are a disgrace to our Nation and don’t care how many lives the ruin.”

He wasn’t close to done: “These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years. They won’t even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side. A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!”

But unless Trump pushes the issue by firing Mueller, the special counsel is going to be around until at least 2020 and possibly even beyond.

Cutting razor wire, caravan migrants make a new case for a border wall


After a big public relations buildup about razor wire being installed at the border to keep illegal migrants out, caravan migrants are at it again, this time cutting the newly installed razor wire:


Customs and Border Patrol has a video of the crime in San Diego.



 



 



Here’s video of another one at the the border in Arizona. Both happened on the exact same day, Nov. 14.


Obviously, it’s coordinated, and by a very canny organized group (cartels?) that wants to send a message to the U.S. that its border efforts are useless. Tactically, it’s striking first and striking hard, right there with the cameras rolling, which it obviouslhy wants. Once the razor wires are cut, the migrants, who contrary to the television news photos are not mostly moms and toddlers, but unemployed military aged males, will climb the fence again, hop over unencumbered to the other side, take up residence as illegal immigrants with all their legal protections and leftwing lawyer advocates, and humiliate President Trump in his bid to gain control of the U.S. border. And the razor wire cutting suggests they intend to do it anytime they like. Messge: Resistance is futile.


That’s some amazing messaging – arrogant, entitled and lawless – with clever tactical actions designed to make Uncle Sam look powerless. It almost makes me wonder if it’s the work of cartels, which make billions on these border crossings and stand to lose a lot if legal immigration becomes a better option for would-be migrants than illegal options.


Which is one thing a border wall and some tough immigration reforms would actually accomplish. As illegals cut razor wire with military precision, it’s one more case for building a border wall, and ending the incompetent paper-tiger response we are seeing now. Congress has a couple more months before the leftist deluge. It should get busy right now.

She Claimed He Broke Into Her House And Assaulted Her. A Selfie Proved She Lied.


Cristopher “CJ” Precopia very nearly spent the rest of his life in prison after being accused of assault by his ex-girlfriend.

The woman, who despite obviously reporting a false crime has still not been named or charged, claimed Precopia broke into her house and attacked her with a box cutter, slashing an “X” into her chest. Based on her story and the cleanly sliced “X” on her chest, Precopia was arrested.

The 21-year-old Williamson County, TX, man told KVUE News he was confused when he was arrested on Sept. 22, 2017 at the lumber yard where he worked. He couldn’t remember when he last spoke to the woman, whom he had dated years earlier in high school.

“I had no idea why everything was happening, and I was lost,” he told KVUE.

Precopia was taken to the Williamson County Jail, charged with burglary with the intent to commit other crimes. He faced 99 years in prison. His parents paid his $150,000 bond plus thousands more in legal fees to clear his name.

The accuser said the attack happened on Sept. 20. 2017 around 7:20 p.m., but Precopia’s mother, Erin, knew her son wasn’t even in town that night. He was with his mom at a Northwest Austin, TX, hotel – about 65 miles away from where the alleged attack happened.

And Erin had proof. She had taken a selfie with her son that night and posted it to Facebook. The photo was timestamped and geo-located, proving Precopia was nowhere near the woman the night of the alleged attack.

“I’m thinking, ‘this is awesome. By the grace of God, she said it happened on the day when I can say totally, 100 percent, where he was at,” Erin said.

The family also had sworn affidavits from people who were with Precopia that night.

“Most of the time, we deal with gray matters,” Precopia’s attorney, Rick Flores, said. “It’s not normally black or white. But this is one of those cases where I could definitely prove he did not commit this offense.”

It took nine months for the charges against Precopia to be dropped. His accuser told police she made the accusation because the two had a difficult relationship years ago in high school.

No, more than a year later, Precopia told KVUE he was ready to move on.

“I’m ready to actually live my life, the way I want to, without having any kind of worry that this can come back and hurt me,” he said.

Precopia was not given the opportunity to respond to the accusations against him before he was arrested. Police reports, viewed by KVUE, show he returned a police phone call and left a message. But no one spoke to him before he was arrested and sent to prison with his future on the line.

“We are always willing to listen and examine new information, and that’s exactly what we did in this case,” said Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza.

Perhaps if they had spoken to Precopia and done even a basic investigation before arresting him they would never have had to file charges or upend a young man’s life in the first place.

Keith Ellison’s replacement lied about her support of Israel BDS movement


Keith Ellison (D) won his bid to become Minnesota’s next Attorney General with four points to spare, proving that not all allegations of domestic violence are treated the same in this country. Of course, his old seat in Congress was up for grabs and it was won by Ilhan Omar, widely lauded by the press for the various “firsts” she represents as a young, female, Muslim member of the House. But in a move that’s starting to sound common among Democrats, some of the promises and claims she made during the campaign immediately became null and void once she secured election.

The Free Beacon reminds us that Omar faced criticism for being too anti-Isreal and supporting the BDS movement to punish the Jewish state. She flatly denied those allegations, saying that the BDS movement was “not helpful” in reaching a two-state solution to the Mideast peace process. But as soon as they finished counting the votes, Omar’s real beliefs were revealed.

Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar came out against the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement during her campaign, but after winning election, she now says she “supports the BDS movement.”

Omar, a Muslim Somali-American elected last week to replace outgoing Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) in the House, fought accusations that she held anti-Israel views during her campaign. As part of that effort, she told a group of Jewish voters in the state that she opposed the economic boycott of Israel, calling it “counteractive” and “not helpful in getting that two-state solution.”

But Omar’s tune has changed since winning the election. In an interview published Sunday by MuslimGirl, Omar said she “supports the BDS movement.”

Isn’t that interesting? Omar is clearly on record having told a group of Jewish voters that BDS was “counteractive” and that she didn’t support it. But now her campaign has released a statement saying, “Ilhan believes in and supports the BDS movement, and has fought to make sure people’s right to support it isn’t criminalized.” So now we have yet another Democrat who has been exposed as a blatant liar on the campaign trail, saying whatever she needed to say in order to win her election.

Are we starting to see a pattern emerge here? Perhaps you recall Democratic candidate Tedra Cobb, who was caught on tape saying she supported a gun ban but couldn’t tell the voters that because she would lose her election. (Narrator: She lost by fifteen points anyway.) And then there was Kirsten Gillibrand who, during a debate with her opponent this fall, looked straight into the camera and vowed (twice!) to serve out her full six-year term if re-elected. Less than 48 hours after her opponent conceded she was on television mulling a 2020 presidential run “seriously.”

This collection of lying liars who tell lies should really be more disturbing to the American voting public and to the press. (Oddly, the media is willing to talk about the President telling tall tales every hour of the day, but you don’t seem to hear a peep out of them about these Democrats, do you?) Or perhaps people honestly aren’t disturbed about it anymore. Maybe we’re just so used to our politicians lying to us by this point that they simply assume they can get away with it and not pay a price at the polls next time around. In at least some cases, they appear to be correct. And that’s kind of sad.

LIMBAUGH: Let The Democrats Keep Showing Their Hand


The Democratic Party’s emerging radical bloc is alarming, but the leftist group’s youthful intemperance could backfire and re-energize Republicans’ 2020 electoral prospects.

Even before all the hanging chads and miraculously divined ballots have been examined in Florida, newly elected leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already engaging in activism in the halls of Congress. On Tuesday morning, the future representative from New York joined a protest organized by the Sunrise Movement outside the offices of Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi to demand immediate action on climate change — as if the dinosaur wing of the Democratic Party weren’t sufficiently extremist on environmental issues.

Ocasio-Cortez, who validates the maxim “youth is wasted on the young,” is part of the Justice Democrats, which promoted leftist challengers during the 2018 Democratic primary cycle. The Sunrise Movement is demanding House support of a “Green New Deal,” which contemplates forming a committee to write policies aimed at creating jobs by moving the nation off fossil fuels — as counterintuitive as that may strike you.

Waleed Shahid, the Justice Democrats’ communications director, insists that the Democratic Party’s leadership must get serious about the climate and the economy. “Anything less is tantamount to denying the reality of climate change,” said Shahid. “The hopeful part is that we’re ushering in a new generation of leaders into the Democratic Party who understand the urgency and will help build a movement to create the political will for bold action.” Yes, they must get moving before any more of Al Gore’s hysterical doomsday predictions fail.

The adage “with age comes wisdom” is biblically based and objectively observable — except, perhaps, in the case of Pelosi and her old-guard Democrats. They have invited all types of radicals into their coalition, so they can hardly complain when the fruit of their poisonous tree begins to blossom. Accordingly, Pelosi pretended to support this presumptuous upstart’s mini-rebellion.

“We are inspired by the energy and activism of the many young activists and advocates leading the way on the climate crisis, which threatens the health, economic security and futures of all our communities,” said Pelosi. “I have recommended to my House Democratic colleagues that we reinstate a select committee to address the climate crisis. … We welcome the presence of these activists, and we strongly urge the Capitol Police to allow them to continue to organize and participate in our democracy.”

Her groveling wasn’t enough to pacify the implacable Justice Democrats, who tweeted: “Our response: Not good enough. Pelosi is reinstating a 2007 committee tasked with investigating the harms of climate change. We don’t need more investigation. We need specific plans matching the urgency and scale mandated by the UN’s IPCC report on catastrophic climate change.”

The good thing about cliches is that, usually based on human experience, they’re often true. So, the current plight of the Pelosi Democrats is that they have made their bed and now have to lie in it. For the next two years, they’re going to be lying in the same bed as the rebels — a bed that has two left sides.

The Democrats have lived by the sword of radicalism, embracing every last crazy idea of the extreme left and incorporating it into their agenda, and may they electorally die by that sword in 2020.

Democrats used to tack to the center during general election season, knowing America has been a center-right nation. But since Obama’s presidency, they’ve begun playing their left hand more openly. In the bluest of areas, they can afford to reveal their outright socialism, which explains Ocasio-Cortez’s unapologetically socialist campaign message. In other venues, such as Arizona, their radicals have to feign centrism, which explains Kyrsten Sinema’s chameleonic transformation to would-be centrist.

The developing schism in the Democratic Party is a positive sign for Republicans, who should greatly benefit from Democratic fissures, especially if they lead to the Democratic Party’s moving even further to the left and exposing its radicalism.

Though the electoral demographics seem to be shifting leftward — and though our public schools, universities and dominant media culture are indoctrinating more Americans every day — it’s unlikely the majority of the country will be comfortable with leftist extremism as soon as 2020.

But this is hardly something Republicans can rejoice over, because until they get their own act together, they won’t be able to properly capitalize on intramural conflict among Democrats. But from my perspective, anything that awakens a complacent America to the existential dangers posed by the radical left, which increasingly controls the Democratic Party, represents cause for hope and optimism.

That one little thing the caravan organizers got caught flatfooted on…


Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the open-borders group that organized the migrant caravan, has had an easy time of it, racking up propaganda victory after propaganda victory as its group snaked through Mexico.


They put the tiny number of women and children in the group up front for the news cameras with the media obliging them to create the perception that the entire group was just women and children fleeing gangs instead of largely military-aged unemployed young men.



They brazenly waved the Honduran, Guatemalan, Mexican and Salvadoran flags in a bid to signal they aren’t looking for ‘mercy’ from the U.S., they consider entering the U.S. a matter of right as nationals of those countries.


They busted down the gates of Mexico’s southern border to signal to the world that Mexico’s efforts to enforce its own border are utterly useless.


They kept the group together when there were signs it was splitting apart, the better to retain their power of numbers in order to make demands.


They got the Mexican authorities to feed, house, bed, medicate, and escort them throughout their journey to the U.S. border, signalling their clout over that sovereign nation. And it helped that like revolutionaries swimming among fishes, as Mao used to say, they got the Mexican locals to offer aid as well in the hopes that the group would continue on their way away from them.


The list goes on. Arriving in Tijuana, they hopped the border fence and danced around in plain view of U.S. lawmen, daring them to stop them, presumably through opening fire, and then when they didn’t, they racked up another propaganda victory by exposing U.S. powerlessness to stop them. After that, they hopped back into Mexico with no consequences.


There’s just one thing they didn’t calculate for: The rage of Tijuana’s locals, whose anger is growing at the prospect of migrants camping out all over their city streets and neighborhoods, bringing crime, garbage, homeless encampments and disorder. Here’s a screengrab from KGTV and you can see the whole confrontation at this link here:



 


Tijuana is a pretty orderly and prosperous place in Mexico, much more so than Mexico’s impoverished south (where Mexico’s government cordially invited the migrants to settle), and the prospect of caravan migrants setting up camps for months in TJ as they await to be processed for their fake asylum claims into the U.S, is bringing about the same reaction you’d expect to see from the Rancho Bernardo or La Jolla areas of San Diego, were the thousands of migrants to set up camp there instead.


Based on two local television news reports, from ABC10 and CBS 8 of San Diego, the problem is worse than it’s being reported in the national press.


KGTV, the ABC affiliate, and KFMB, the CBS affiliate, both reported that violent fights have broken out with rocks, punches, hurled beer cans and other thuggery. The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that at least a thousand of the Tijuana residents have banded together into a social media group to save their neighborhoods from the migrants. There are also reports that the Tijuana cops aren’t putting up with this, and already have arrested and jailed five of the caravan migrants, two for starting fights and three for doing drugs. How nice to think they traveled 2,000 miles to reach the inside of a Tijuana jailhouse. Here’s some of the local sentiment from KGTV:


Some Tijuana residents are frustrated with the growing number of Central American migrants that have gathered along the border in hopes of gaining asylum in the U.S.


Tijuana resident Cesar Baltazar, who legally crosses the border on a regular basis to work in the U.S., told 10News, “In Plaza Tijuana, they’re already fighting. I mean, all the residents there don’t want them there.”


On Wednesday night, a confrontation between Mexican nationals and some members of the immigrant caravan escalated into violence. The fight inflicted injury on both sides, including one man seen on cell phone video with a bloody eye.


“They’re unknown, that’s the thing,” Baltazer said. “They’re unknown. They’re strangers.”


and this:


“[Tijuana] has a lot of crime. They have a lot of murders. They have a lot of drug usage. So, they don’t want those problems from Central America to come over here,” he told 10News.


Tijuana resident Georgina Parra added, “Everyone is in disagreement. Aside from them trashing our city, they’re making caravans outside and talking badly about Tijuana.”


The Tijuana people don’t like those insults, and rightly so – Tijuana is so much nicer a place than the countries these migrants left, and to see new arrivals coming in by the busload to insult them is kind of rich, so the local disgust is understandable. Nor is it warranted. Few of the real Tijuana residents ever move to San Diego, given the ease they would have do that, and the fact that they actually don’t.


And it’s actually getting some coverage, something the migrant caravan planners didn’t calculate for. With the prospect of migrants having to camp out in TJ for six months before they can get released into the U.S. to work a few years before their asylum claims are rejected, there is going to be resistance. And it will only get worse as time grinds on and frustrations build. I can see some of the TJ people and their elected officials pressuring the U.S. to process the fake asylum claims more quickly, but the U.S. may be in a position to resist that. If it does, the caravan is going to be left to explain why it shouldn’t be run out of town as angry Tijuana residents get angrier.


Who would have thought it would come to this?

They put the tiny number of women and children in the group up front for the news cameras with the media obliging them to create the perception that the entire group was just women and children fleeing gangs instead of largely military-aged unemployed young men.


They brazenly waved the Honduran, Guatemalan, Mexican and Salvadoran flags in a bid to signal they aren’t looking for ‘mercy’ from the U.S., they consider entering the U.S. a matter of right as nationals of those countries.


They busted down the gates of Mexico’s southern border to signal to the world that Mexico’s efforts to enforce its own border are utterly useless.


They kept the group together when there were signs it was splitting apart, the better to retain their power of numbers in order to make demands.


They got the Mexican authorities to feed, house, bed, medicate, and escort them throughout their journey to the U.S. border, signalling their clout over that sovereign nation. And it helped that like revolutionaries swimming among fishes, as Mao used to say, they got the Mexican locals to offer aid as well in the hopes that the group would continue on their way away from them.


The list goes on. Arriving in Tijuana, they hopped the border fence and danced around in plain view of U.S. lawmen, daring them to stop them, presumably through opening fire, and then when they didn’t, they racked up another propaganda victory by exposing U.S. powerlessness to stop them. After that, they hopped back into Mexico with no consequences.


There’s just one thing they didn’t calculate for: The rage of Tijuana’s locals, whose anger is growing at the prospect of migrants camping out all over their city streets and neighborhoods, bringing crime, garbage, homeless encampments and disorder. Here’s a screengrab from KGTV and you can see the whole confrontation at this link here:



 


Tijuana is a pretty orderly and prosperous place in Mexico, much more so than Mexico’s impoverished south (where Mexico’s government cordially invited the migrants to settle), and the prospect of caravan migrants setting up camps for months in TJ as they await to be processed for their fake asylum claims into the U.S, is bringing about the same reaction you’d expect to see from the Rancho Bernardo or La Jolla areas of San Diego, were the thousands of migrants to set up camp there instead.


Based on two local television news reports, from ABC10 and CBS 8 of San Diego, the problem is worse than it’s being reported in the national press.


KGTV, the ABC affiliate, and KFMB, the CBS affiliate, both reported that violent fights have broken out with rocks, punches, hurled beer cans and other thuggery. The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that at least a thousand of the Tijuana residents have banded together into a social media group to save their neighborhoods from the migrants. There are also reports that the Tijuana cops aren’t putting up with this, and already have arrested and jailed five of the caravan migrants, two for starting fights and three for doing drugs. How nice to think they traveled 2,000 miles to reach the inside of a Tijuana jailhouse. Here’s some of the local sentiment from KGTV:


Some Tijuana residents are frustrated with the growing number of Central American migrants that have gathered along the border in hopes of gaining asylum in the U.S.


Tijuana resident Cesar Baltazar, who legally crosses the border on a regular basis to work in the U.S., told 10News, “In Plaza Tijuana, they’re already fighting. I mean, all the residents there don’t want them there.”


On Wednesday night, a confrontation between Mexican nationals and some members of the immigrant caravan escalated into violence. The fight inflicted injury on both sides, including one man seen on cell phone video with a bloody eye.


“They’re unknown, that’s the thing,” Baltazer said. “They’re unknown. They’re strangers.”


and this:


“[Tijuana] has a lot of crime. They have a lot of murders. They have a lot of drug usage. So, they don’t want those problems from Central America to come over here,” he told 10News.


Tijuana resident Georgina Parra added, “Everyone is in disagreement. Aside from them trashing our city, they’re making caravans outside and talking badly about Tijuana.”


The Tijuana people don’t like those insults, and rightly so – Tijuana is so much nicer a place than the countries these migrants left, and to see new arrivals coming in by the busload to insult them is kind of rich, so the local disgust is understandable. Nor is it warranted. Few of the real Tijuana residents ever move to San Diego, given the ease they would have do that, and the fact that they actually don’t.


And it’s actually getting some coverage, something the migrant caravan planners didn’t calculate for. With the prospect of migrants having to camp out in TJ for six months before they can get released into the U.S. to work a few years before their asylum claims are rejected, there is going to be resistance. And it will only get worse as time grinds on and frustrations build. I can see some of the TJ people and their elected officials pressuring the U.S. to process the fake asylum claims more quickly, but the U.S. may be in a position to resist that. If it does, the caravan is going to be left to explain why it shouldn’t be run out of town as angry Tijuana residents get angrier.

Trump Throws Down the Gauntlet on Acosta, Reveals His Incredible Plan If Jim Starts Acting Up


So Jim Acosta is back in the White House press room. Finally. It’s about time other reporters stopped asking questions.

Acosta’s press pass was restored, at least for the time being, by federal Judge Timothy J. Kelly on Friday, who said that the White House hadn’t given Acosta “due process” to explain himself.

“The opportunity to be heard seems especially important in this case,” Kelly’s ruling said, according to the Washington Times. “The government must provide Mr. Acosta due process if it is to revoke his hard pass.”

The facts could be seen on C-SPAN, mind you, a channel Judge Kelly’s cable package doesn’t offer. It also doesn’t offer any of the other channels which showed exactly what happened — namely, that Acosta kept asking questions long after another reporter had been called on and that he touched a White House intern who tried to take away the microphone so that he could keep on talking. I’m guessing he has one of those cable packages which only gives him HGTV and the Smithsonian Channel.

At least for Trump, however, he swears this is no big thing. In an interview with Fox News, he said he’d just throw Acosta out if he tried to pull anything like that again.

Fox host Chris Wallace asked about the ruling in a clip of the interview set to air this Sunday.

“A federal judge who you appointed has just ruled that you must give CNN reporter Jim Acosta his press pass back,” Wallace said. “Your reaction to the ruling, sir.”

“Yeah, it’s fine. I mean, it’s not a big deal,” Trump said.

“What they said though, is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct, etc. etc.”

Do you think Jim Acosta should have been banned from White House press briefings?

“We’re doing that, were going to write them up right now. It’s not a big deal and if he misbehaves we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”

“What are your rules going to be?” Wallace said. “What is it that you’re saying?”

“We’re writing them now,” Trump said.

“We’ll have rules of decorum — you know, you can’t keep asking questions.

“We had a lot of reporters in that room, many many reporters in that room and they were unable to ask questions because this guy gets up and starts, you know, doing what he’s supposed to be doing for him and for CNN and, you know, just shouting out questions and making statements too.”

“But I will say this — look, nobody believes in the First Amendment more than I do,” Trump added.

“And if I think somebody is acting out of sorts I will leave I will say thank you very much, everybody, I appreciate you coming and I’ll leave.

“And those reporters will not be too friendly to whoever it is that’s acting up.”

If the rules of decorum involve not being able to filibuster your questions or not using question time to make statements, we might as well just give Jim Acosta his send-off now. For the moment, however, there will be a lot more Acosta-hair and a lot less oxygen in the White House press briefing room.
