Trump Signs Memo Aimed At Undocumented Immigrants

Trump Signs Memo Aimed At Undocumented Immigrants By Hector Rodriguez President Donald Trump signed a memo aimed at undocumented immigrants this past week. It essentially prevents said undocumented immigrants from being counted in the census – which in turn means they will not be represented when officials determine how many representatives are needed in Congress for particular states. Because undocumented immigrants tend to vote in states that lean Democrat, this move would likely end up harming Democrats more than Republicans. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was a key figure behind the decision. He is in charge of the census, and as such, will be tasked with providing President Trump with appropriate data regarding the number of undocumented people in each state. Those totals ...

Nancy Pelosi Says Trump Will Be Ordered To Leave White House

This past weekend, President Trump did an interview on Fox News with respected anchor Chris Wallace. During the interview, Wallace pressed President Trump on how aggressively he would attempt to remain in the White House should he lose ...

Kayleigh McEnany: Trump Will Find Solution To Immigration Woes By Theresa Goldman White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany spoke out this week and assured President Donald Trump’s supporters that he is looking for a permanent solution to America’s immigration woes. “As the President announced, he’s working on an executive order to establish a merit-based immigration system,” she said. “That will be the intent of the executive order. But the President has long said that he would look for a legislative solution on DACA, and he would work with Congress to pursue that legislative solution, and one that could include citizenship, along with other strong border security and permanent merit-based reforms.” This week, a court ordered that the Trump Administration must restore its DA...

Bill Barr Says China Is Trying To Replace America As Superpower

Bill Barr Says China Is Trying To Replace America As Superpower By Hector Rodriguez Attorney General Bill Barr spoke out this week against China’s attempts to replace the United States as a world superpower. Specifically he cited the opposing nation’s gradual focus on overtaking certain aspects of the global economy that used to be dominated by America. “For a hundred years, America was the world’s largest manufacturer — allowing us to serve as the world’s ‘arsenal of democracy,” he said. “China overtook the United States in manufacturing output in 2010. The PRC is now the world’s ‘arsenal of dictatorship.'” Barr did not stop there, though. He specifically called out China for its array of wrongs, including consolidation of power and promotion of socialism. “The General S...

Atlanta Mayor Says GOP Will Lose Georgia In November

Atlanta Mayor Says GOP Will Lose Georgia In November By Thomas Smith Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms spoke out on Wednesday and insisted that Republicans would lose the state of Georgia in November. In a session with the media, Mayor Bottoms suggested that Democrats had a far greater chance of success at winning Georgia in 2020 than the opposition. “I am, for the first time, glad to see Donald Trump in Georgia because I think that his recognition and acknowledgment that Georgia is in play,” she said. “Joe Biden is polling so well in this state. This is a battleground state. “If you look at where Donald Trump is giving his energy, it’s to states that the Republicans are concerned about losing. But he’s also giving a lot of attention to women leaders across this country, includi...

Trump Bashes LA Schools For Going Online-Only

Trump Bashes LA Schools For Going Online-Only By Lisa Michaels President Donald Trump bashed a decision by the Los Angeles and San Diego Unified School Districts to do online-only instruction this Fall. Speaking to Catherine Herridge on Tuesday, the POTUS could hardly mask his displeasure. “The Los Angeles school district is the latest and one of the largest in the country to say they’re not going back to school in the fall,” Herridge said. “Mistake,” President Trump replied. “What do you tell parents and teachers who feel that it’s unsafe to go back?” Herridge followed up. “I would tell parents and teachers that you should find yourself a new person whoever’s in charge of that decision because it’s a terrible decision” the President replied. “Children and parents a...

Maxine Waters Speaks Out Regarding Trump Supporters

Maxine Waters Speaks Out Regarding Trump Supporters By Lisa Michaels Congresswoman Maxine Waters spoke out regarding supporters of President Donald Trump this week. Needless to say, her comments were not complimentary. While appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy on Sunday, Congresswoman Waters had a conversation with host Joy Reid regarding her perceptions of the people that back President Trump. “I think you said it earlier today when you talked about this need for Trump and those who support him to want to, you know, have absolute power and to believe that it is their right and their responsibility to ensure that blacks and people of color and others do not rise to any level of influence and power, significant that would cause them not to be in total charge of the country,” she said...

Hong Kong Activist Joshua Wong Explodes On ESPN By Lisa Michaels Prominent Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong exploded on ESPN this week. Specifically, he took issue with the network’s response to a letter from Senator Josh Hawley where the lawmaker asked for the NBA to support resistance to China’s incursions on civil liberties. ESPN did not heed the Senator’s call, leading to much criticism from many – including Wong. “For those of us fighting for our very lives against Chinese repression ON A DAILY BASIS, this is a really big slap in the face,” Wong tweeted. “The multibillion American sports industry (including @NBA, @espn and @KingJames) ought to stop just talking loud at home then kowtowing to Beijing.” As of Friday evening, ESPN has yet to address Wong’s concerns.

Seattle Moves Ahead With Defunding Police By 50 Percent

Seattle Moves Ahead with Defunding Police By 50 Percent By Hector Rodriguez Seattle is moving ahead with its planned goal of defunding the police by 50 percent. This week, a veto-proof majority of the city council supported a proposal that would extricate 911 dispatchers from police control and encouraged people to “imagine life beyond policing.” Seven of nine members of the city council backed a plan to remove 911 dispatches from police control, scale up community-based solutions to public safety, fund community-led processes to move past policing and invest in affordable housing. Mayor Jenny Durkan has yet to comment on the proposal to reduce police funding by 50 percent. Six members of the council need to vote in unison to overrule a mayoral veto. Democratic preside...
