Australia Considering Listing Hezbollah as Terror Organization
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton told local news outlet 2GB radio on Thursday that Australia is considering following the lead of the U.S. and U.K. in listing the military wing of Hezbollah in Lebanon as a terrorist organization, according to Breitbart News.
“I mean, when you look at the activities of Hezbollah, nobody should have sympathy for the way in which they conduct themselves,” Dutton said. “But we need to make decisions based on all of the facts and unfortunately sometimes in these cases, all of the facts aren’t publicly available.”
“We’ve got to make a decision speaking to the agencies and working out what sometimes is a line-ball call, but there are other equities that we need to look at in the consideration of many of these matters,” he added.
Different countries have deemed different parts of Hezbollah a terror group. The United States, United Kingdom, Israel, Germany and Canada list it as a terror group, while France, New Zealand and the European Union label only its military wing as a terror group.
Scalise Burns Ellison With Example of ‘Bernie Bro’ Violence
Thursday on social media, Republican Rep. Steve Scalise delivered a painful burn to Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, who asked for examples of “a ‘Bernie Bro’ being bad,” reminding the former lawmaker that he was shot by a Sanders supporter during a congressional baseball practice in 2017.
“I have never seen @BernieSanders supporters being unusually mean or rude. Can someone send me an example of a ‘Bernie Bro’ being bad,” Ellison asked. “Also, are we holding all candidates responsible for the behavior of some of their supporters? Waiting to hear.”
“I can think of an example,” Scalise shot back on Twitter, referring to Sanders supporter and left-wing activist James T. Hodgkinson, who shot Scalise and injured three others at a congressional baseball practice in 2017. Hodgkinson specifically targeted the event because it was a Republican team.
Ellison’s challenge is easily met: political violence and partisan, personal demonization in the Trump era is almost exclusively the purview of the left.
Sharpton Spox: ‘Folk’ Don’t Trust Trump Admin on 2020 Census
An event with faith leaders from around the country on Tuesday in Washington, D.C. was disrupted by the Rev. Nelson B. Rivers III of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, who said black and brown “folk” don’t trust the Trump administration to fairly conduct the census.
“If you’re black or Latino in America and you’re not paranoid, you need to question your sanity,” said Rivers, according to Breitbart News. “To be paranoid is a natural response to being black and brown in this country. But I’m from a community that realizes the policy depends on who’s enforcing it. And right now we have a guy who’s demonstrated that the law doesn’t mean jack to him,” Rivers said, referring to President Trump.
“And if you can influence how the Justice Department behaves, you have a hard time telling folk, ‘trust the government’ or ‘trust the lawyers,’” Rivers said, “but to diminish the fact that we really do have a different government than we had in 2010.”
Yes, we do. Unlike the current administration, in 2010 we had one that did nothing for American minorities.
Brennan: Trump Plays to a ‘Very Debased Group of People’
Thursday on MSNBC, former CIA Director John Brennan claimed President Trump acts like “a mob boss” and plays to a “very debased” group of people.
“He’s clearly giving every indication he wants to act like a mob boss,” Brennan stated. “And he’s going to try to take care of him and his soldiers… It’s outrageous he would try to make any moral equivalency between someone like Roger Stone, who the judge said has trampled the law, and public servants like James Comey and others who really tried their best. You can question their decisions and judgments but really were trying to carry out their duties responsibly and with integrity…
“I mean, he just plays to this very debased group of people who are listening to what he is saying in terms of just trashing good public servants and defending people like Roger Stone? I mean, give me a break.”
Brennan, Comey, and other “public servants” Brennan claimed carried out their duties “with integrity” are all Deep State operatives whose traitorous aim was to rid the White House of Trump.
Warren Wants Trans Athletes Protected From ‘Cruel Bill’
On Thursday, floundering presidential contender Elizabeth Warren tweeted that transgender athletes are “not a threat” and need protection from a “cruel bill” banning them from participating in women’s sports.
“Trans athletes are not a threat,” Warren tweeted. “We need to protect trans kids—and all LGBTQ+ kids—and ensure they feel safe and welcomed at school. I urge the Arizona legislature to reject this cruel bill.”
Arizona Republican Rep. Nancy Barto’s “Save Women’s Sports Act” would bar biological males from competing as females in state-sponsored sports leagues because of the unfair physical advantage. As the advocacy group Boys vs. Women noted in a tweet, “Had boys from the 2016 High School Nationals Swimming Finals competed in the 2016 Olympic Women’s Finals, the boys would have taken all but one medal (a bronze) – despite the women settings eight new World & Olympic Records.”
By campaigning against this bill at the expense of women athletes, Warren shows she’s willing to trash women’s rights on behalf of the bullying LGBT lobby.
MSNBC Shares Martin Sheen’s ‘Trump/Putin 2020’ Sticker
“As we were just discussing Donald Trump’s running mate Vladimir Putin during the last segment, Janet and Martin Sheen texted me — they can’t see it, maybe you can see it — a bumper sticker that a friend of theirs has already made up saying ‘Trump Putin 2020,’” O’Donnell chuckled as he held up his phone. “That’s straight from Malibu, from Janet and Martin Sheen.”
O’Donnell had been discussing reports of Russia supposedly working to help Trump get reelected, calling the president a “Russian operative” and declaring Vladimir Putin his “running mate.”
Even after the left’s desperate, 3-year investigation into purported Russian collusion in the 2016 election turned up nothing, they continue to push the conspiracy theory that Trump is Putin’s puppet. They simply cannot accept that the American people elected Trump.
