C’mon Nancy, are you really going to go there? How could you stoop so low? Haven’t you the slightest bit of compassion for murdered Kate Steinle and her grieving family? Must scoring political points even trump American lives?
For my relatives who only get mainstream media spin, here is what’s really going on. An illegal alien shot and killed complete stranger, 32 year old Kate Steinle, while enjoying strolling with her dad along a San Francisco pier. Kate’s scumbag murderer had been convicted of 7 felonies and deported five times. And yet, this criminal kept returning to the US without consequence.
The reality is many bad people are entering our country illegally unabated. Heck, Obama even rolls out the welcome mat. Uneducated and unskilled, Obama is confident he can woo them with taxpayer funded handouts, making them future Democrat voters. Consequently, the Obama Administration has released thousands of criminal illegal aliens. http://bit.ly/1HNRNo0
While the coddling of criminal illegals has been going on for many years, Kate’s senseless murder was the straw that broke the camel’s back in the hearts and minds of many Americans.
In his heart-wrenching appeal to congress to pass Kate’s Law, Kate’s dad said the last words he heard his daughter say before she died was, “Help me dad.” http://fxn.ws/1HWucj7
In a nutshell, Kate’s Law says when these deported illegal criminals get caught sneaking back into the US, they get a mandatory five years in jail. Politicians/officials who disobey this law also go to jail. Makes sense? Of course. Will Kate’s Law save Americans lives? Absolutely.
Like the wicked witch of the east (or was it the west), Democrat Nancy Pelosi enters the conversation. Rather than compassionately expressing reservations about Kate’s Law for whatever reasons, Pelosi attacked it.
Here’s the deal folks. Donald Trump is polling high in his bid for the WH by addressing illegal immigration. Pelosi and her fellow Democrats want to protect their illegal-immigrant-future-voters-scheme. So, in typical Democrat fashion, Pelosi and her MSM partners are trying to brand Trump a racist and hater for simply talking about illegal immigration.
Throwing the late Kate Steinle, her family and future American victims under the bus, Miss-ice-water-in-her-veins Pelosi tried to tie Kate’s Law to Trump. Nancy Pelosi said Kate’s Law should be called the “Donald Trump Act”, meaning it is nothing more than hate inspired legislation. http://bit.ly/1DBUfdo
Really, Nancy? Have you no shame?
In the Democratic Party, Pelosi’s win-the-issue-at-any-and-all cost mindset is the norm. This is why it drives me nuts that Democrats get such high marks for their faux compassion.
Even media typically supportive of Democrats was a bit taken a back when Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid said he would not allow a vote to ensure that kids with cancer would get their meds during a budget debate. http://fxn.ws/1FIjZe9 As cold and unbelievable as this sounds, Reid obviously considered the kids’ lives acceptable sacrifices in his quest to beat the Republicans.
Pat Smith is the mother of Sean Smith who was killed at our US consulate in Benghazi. At the casket ceremony, Ms Smith said Hillary Clinton gave her a big hug and lied to her; vowing to punish the person who produced the anti-Muslim video which supposedly caused the attack. http://bit.ly/1AYG0fM
Emails later revealed that Hillary, Obama and other Administration officials knew the attack had nothing to do with a video. http://bit.ly/1g9zW2d The attack on our consulate happened 9-11-2012. It was election time folks.
Obama and his minions were out there telling the American people that terrorism was no longer a threat. So when our Benghazi Ambassador Stevens anticipated an attack due to the anniversary of 9/11, he pleaded for extra security. His request was denied. Ambassador Stevens, Pat Smith’s son Sean and two other Americans were killed in the Islamic terrorist attack. Those guys were sitting ducks folks. Sitting ducks.
And yet, the mainstream media continues to hide these truths about the Democrats, awarding them gold stars for compassion.
So Nancy Pelosi taking the below-the-gutter low road while claiming the high road regarding Kate’s Law is par for the Democrat course. My prayer is that we cease allowing them to get away with it.
Kate’s Law is a very, very, very good thing.

Accuracy in Media Editor Roger Aronoff recently appeared on The Daily Ledger on the One America News Network to discuss an ongoing scandal at the Federal Aviation Administration which has prompted an investigation by the department’s inspector general.
Prior to 2014, as Aronoff reported in May, the FAA recruited its air traffic controllers from either the military or from the pool of people who had graduated after spending years studying and training at FAA programs called Collegiate Training Initiative, or CTI schools. However, it now uses a walk-in process combined with a biographical questionnaire asking questions such as, “How many sports did you play in high school?”
“And what this is really about is ethnic diversity,” said Aronoff on The Daily Ledger. Peter Kirsanow, of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, also came to the same conclusion.
“A news report quotes [Transportation] Secretary [Anthony] Foxx as telling Congress, ‘The FAA took an opportunity to take a broad opening of the aperture if you will to try to get a larger universe of applicants into the [air traffic control] program,’” wrote Kirsanow, according to Newsmax. “I don’t speak jive, but I am fluent in bureaucratese, and this is easy to translate: the FAA didn’t like the racial and gender composition of the people in its pool of potential air traffic controllers.”
“This is the safety of our planes flying in the air,” Aronoff emphasized. “And I can tell you from what I’ve learned is that there have been a number of very close calls…There have been many who have been thrown out of the system because they were so bad.”
The Fox Business Network (FBN) exposed back in May how a leader of the National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees (NBCFAE) had distributed a recorded message detailing how its members could cheat on the biographical questionnaire. “But they have a recording that they tell you, they walk you through what to fill out so you will be able to pass this and get hired,” said Aronoff.
“This is a scandal that should be looked at constantly by the news media, but they are ignoring this,” Aronoff said. “It’s like Benghazi or the IRS scandal. [The media] consider it not even worthy of being discussed.”
After Aronoff published his initial article noting how The Wall Street Journal had reported on the change in FAA hiring standards, but not the Obama administration scandal itself, the Journal published an opinion article entitled, “Affirmative Action Lands in the Air Traffic Control Tower:”
After the FAA changed its screening process in 2014, thousands of applicants who were already in the pipeline—people who had obtained an FAA-accredited degree, taken the AT-SAT exam and had been designated ‘well-qualified’ to become air-traffic controllers—were told by the government that they would have to start the process again. ‘But this time, when they applied for a job, their college degrees and previous military experience would mean nothing,’ reported Fox Business. ‘They would now compete with thousands of people the agency calls ‘off the street hires’; anyone who wants to, can walk in off the street without any previous training and apply for an air traffic control job.’
In other words, the current policy is to deliberately favor less-qualified applicants over more qualified applicants in the name of obtaining the ‘right’ racial and gender mix among air-traffic controllers. Advocates of ‘diversity’ insist that discounting objective measures of ability and competence is harmless, but history shows that it can be deadly.
The Obama administration isn’t stopping there in its effort to create a progressive utopia of ethnic diversity, whether or not racial discrimination is, in fact, currently happening.
Stanley Kurtz, writing for National Review earlier this month, called it a “scandal that the mainstream press has largely refused to report on the Obama administration’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule:”
AFFH is easily one of President Obama’s most radical initiatives, on a par with Obamacare in its transformative potential. In effect, AFFH gives the federal government a lever to re-engineer nearly every American neighborhood—imposing a preferred racial and ethnic composition, densifying housing, transportation, and business development in suburb and city alike, and weakening or casting aside the authority of local governments over core responsibilities, from zoning to transportation to education. Not only the policy but the political implications are immense—at the presidential, congressional, state, and local levels.
Here is Aronoff on One America News’ “The Daily Ledger,” with Graham Ledger:
It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!
Here are this week’s nominees…
Rutgers Racist College Perfesser And Buffoon Brittney Cooper!!
The Noisy Room: My nomination this week goes to Rutgers University Professor Brittney Cooper for proclaiming that all white people are the face of the oppressor. So, let me get this straight… this Rutger’s professor is basically telling whites, ‘y’all look alike to me.’ What racist blather. And she hates men – it’s a twofer. Make that a threefer – she’s hates police too. Brittney Cooper is just chock full of hate – facts be damned. It doesn’t matter to her that Sandra Bland would not get out of her car when instructed by the officer to do so. He went a bit over the top when he said he’d light her up with a taser, but she was being uncooperative and belligerent. When she did get out, she argued with him, called him a bunch of vulgar names and kicked him in the shin. He told her that originally she was going to get a warning; now she was going to be arrested for assaulting a public servant. She richly earned her arrest. But it didn’t end there unfortunately and now you have racists screaming for this officer’s head because Sandra Bland decided to off herself in her cell. She hung herself using a trash can liner. This is a woman who had previously tried to commit suicide. But according to Cooper, it’s so obviously the white, male cop’s fault. How did this woman ever become a professor at a major university?
According to this professor, all whites, just for the simple fact of being white, are guilty and ipso facto – oppressors. Only whites, mind you… If you are Hispanic or a Muslim, you get a pass. But white people? Well, they are devils I hear. Never mind that crimes are committed every day by all races and all ideologies. Cooper holds a special place in her black heart for white male cops. Occasionally you see a cop go rogue or make a mistake. That’s rare. And police are pretty good about justice within their own ranks. Contrary to what Cooper is insinuating, you do not have roving, racist white cops across the nation brutalizing black individuals and killing them without cause. Most crimes that are handled by police are crimes that are without a doubt perpetrated by those in custody. According to the likes of Cooper, if you are black and step out of line, white cops should give you special treatment – a unique deference. That is social justice thinking – Liberal logic. It’s pervasive in the Marxist media and in Liberal academia. I sure wouldn’t want Cooper teaching my children in college – no matter what race they were. For being an unmitigated racist and a hate monger, Cooper has more than earned the Golden Weasel.
Baby Killer And Spare Parts Wheeler N’ Dealer, Planned Parenthood’s Dr Mary Gatter!!
Don Surber: Dr. Mary Gatter — the Josef Mengele of abortion — a soulless plague upon the land, making light of aborting babies and selling their parts. Mustela abortionist. Pray for her.
RINO En Extremis And Obama Enabler Senator Mitch McConnell!:
Ask Marion: My WOTW Nominee is Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Senator McConnell was caught and called out for using a procedural maneuver called “Filling the Amendment Tree” to divert attention away from the fact that he called up an amendment that would allow the Export-Import Bank to continue. Marrying the unrelated EX-IM House bill to the highway bill also made sure that he does not violate the Constitution.
Ted Cruz boldly called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar. The straw that broke the elephant’s back was the vote on reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank. McConnell went one lie too far this time said Cruz, who had voted for Obama’s Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) the first go-around in the Senate based on McConnell’s word and he famously turned against the fast-track trade authority later. Because it was based on lies. Cruz said he had to call out McConnell as a matter of honor.
Leader McConnell called up a House passed bill and added the text of the highway bill to it, then he called up an amendment that allows the Export-Import Bank to continue. This married an unrelated House bill to the highway bill and EX-IM. But then Senator McConnell did something that was unexpected. He offered an amendment for a full repeal of Obamacare. Seemingly an attempt to intimidate the Tea Party faction in the Senate to take the vote on a full repeal of Obamacare and walk away from the fight over EX-IM. The problem is that nobody believes the Obamacare amendment to be anything other than meaningless vote bringing McConnell’s deception to the forefront.
Well, there it is. What a despicable group of Weasels… ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
