(RepublicanWire.org) – California Governor Gavin Newsom spoke at an event in Texas over the weekend, apparently disregarding a California law that prohibits government travel to the state. 

Texas is one of 22 states in which California state government travel is prohibited, because it has deemed them to have “discriminatory laws.” In 2017, this measure went into effect in California, as the state first took action due to North Carolina’s measures to keep people who identify as transgender out of certain bathrooms. 

The law bans entities such as “a state agency, department, board, authority, or commission, including an agency, department, board, authority, or commission of the University of California, the Board of Regents of the University of California, or the California State University, and the Legislature” from “requiring any of its employees, officers, or members to travel to a state that” following June 26, 2015, “voids or repeals, or has the effect of voiding or repealing, existing state or local protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression,” along with other clarifications.

The attorney general is in charge of publishing a list of the states that are under the “travel ban” online, per the AG’s website on the matter. 

Currently included on the list are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Texas, Utah, North Carolina, Montana, as well as others. 

Newsom has created speculation that he is planning to run for president as he continually goes after Republican-led states and Republican politicians, specifically states that have taken action to protect unborn lives. 

He recently took out 18 billboards promoting California for abortion in Indiana, Mississippi, Ohio, Texas, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Oklahoma, all of which are on the state’s banned list. 

Some pointed out this summer that Newsom took a vacation to Montana, one of the states on the banned list. His representatives said he was not in violation as it was a personal matter. However, he did bring security personnel along with him. 

Newsom is not a person known for playing by his own rules, notoriously being caught maskless at an elitist dinner summit at the ritzy French Laundry while the rest of California was locked down, and then sent his own kids to private schools that reopened while students in California’s public schools were forced to continue distance learning, contributing to the massive learning loss that American families are now facing with their children. 

(RepublicanWire.org) – A clip of former President Donald Trump arguing that the election of President Joe Biden would lead to a plummeting stock market circulated online on Friday after Wall Street saw a bloodbath.

The Federal Reserve increased targets for the federal funds rate by 0.75% on Wednesday afternoon, sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which tracks 30 of the most prominent companies on American exchanges, tumbling more than 500 points. After stagnating on Thursday, the index fell another 500 points by early Friday afternoon to 29,400. On January 20, 2021, the day of Biden’s inauguration, the Dow had closed slightly above 30,900.

“They said the stock market will boom if I am elected,” Trump said during a 2020 presidential debate. “If he’s elected, the stock market will crash.”

According to conservative polling group InteractivePolls, which posted the clip from the debate to social media, the tech-heavy NASDAQ had risen 44% once Trump was 612 days into his first term. At the same point in Biden’s tenure, however, the index has fallen more than 19%.

Officials from the Biden administration have nevertheless claimed that the economy is strong. When Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy pressed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on a poll showing that 83% of Americans believe the economy is “poor or not so good” earlier this year, she doubled down on the notion that the economy has improved since Biden assumed office.

“What I’m trying to say to you is that the economy is in a better place than it has been historically,” Jean-Pierre said. “And so, we feel, here at this administration and other experts as well … we feel that we are in a good position to take on inflation. We are in a good position to really start really working on lowering prices.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Hillary Clinton compared Trump supporters to Nazis. She also compared President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

Clinton said, “I remember as a young student, you know, trying to figure out how people get basically brought in by Hitler.”

“How did that happen?” Clinton asked. “I’d watch newsreels, and I’d see this guy standing up there ranting and raving and people shouting and raising their arms. I thought, ‘What’s happened to these people?’”

Clinton continued, “You saw the rally in Ohio the other night, Trump is there ranting and raving for more than an hour, and you have these rows of young men with their arms raised. I thought, what is going on?”

Clinton ended with, “I think it is fair to say we’re in a struggle between democracy and autocracy.”

Trump addressed the crowd, “My fellow citizens, this incredible journey we’re on together has only just begun, and it is time to start talking about greatness for our country again. We are one movement, one people, one family, and one glorious American nation.”

Trump’s spokesperson Budowich said that Clinton is “using some of the most disgusting smears imaginable.”

Budowich added, “It seems like perpetual-failed-candidate Hillary Clinton’s basket of deplorables has run stale, not unlike herself. It’s pathetic, it’s divisive, and it is further cementing her legacy of cringe.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Fox Across America host Jimmy Failla blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Friday morning for the congresswoman’s recent video about the “burdens of capitalism.”

“There are quite a few countries that are really struggling because young people, under the burdens of capitalism, are not having kids. We’re not having kids at the same rate! We actually need immigrants to help balance things out,” explained the Congresswoman in a social media post on Wednesday.

Failla roasted AOC, calling her “a low-IQ TikToker who happens to serve Congress.”

Failla said, “you’ve always got to qualify this through the lens of, AOC is a low-IQ TikToker who happens to serve in Congress. Okay, when she says we need immigration because of Social Security and funding, stuff like that. Yes. But the caveat there is we need legal immigration, because legal immigration is what contributes to Social Security and funds the systems. What they’re encouraging on the Democratic side of town is anything but legal immigration. But going one step further, young people aren’t having kids. Yes, they’re waiting longer. But also, your party is championing the idea of not having kids as a badge, abort them. They’re walking around like that’s a badge of honor now. We went from abortion is safe, legal and rare to like ‘I’m so proud it’s abortion Tuesday.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, a Republican, grilled the Air Force over the diversity training that replaced “mom” and “dad” with gender-neutral terms, calling it “un-American.”

Cotton’s letter to Air Force Academy  Superintendent Lt. Gen. Richard Clark, is demanding answers from him regarding the “diversity and inclusion” training exercises the academy put cadets through.

“Cadets were reportedly instructed to refrain from using terms such as ‘boyfriend’ and ‘girlfriend’ or ‘mom’ and ‘dad,’ and instead use terms that ‘include all gender,’” Cotton noted.

“The training also condemns the use of the term ‘colorblind’ or the claim that someone does not ‘see color,’” the Cotton continued. “Even the term ‘terrorist’ was deemed inappropriate.”

“These divisive and un-American training exercises have no place in our military and demonstrate an alarming lack of focus at the Air Force Academy,” Cotton wrote. “The Air Force Academy ought to teach future airmen to revere our nation’s traditions and values, not to have contempt for them.”

Cotton warned that the Air Force Academy’s “increasing politicization is damaging the institution’s reputation” as well as the branch as a whole, and he asked the Air Force Academy to confirm the training happened and answer several questions regarding it.

“The Air Force Academy does not prohibit the use of ‘mom and dad’ or other gender-specific terms,” the spokesperson said. “The recent briefing on diversity and inclusion is being taken out of context and misrepresented; the slide in question was not intended to stand alone.”

“First and foremost, the briefing centered on respect for others and the warfighting imperative of leveraging diverse perspectives to solve our nation’s most difficult national security problems,” the spokesperson continued. “Our strategic competitors are doing the opposite. Our American diversity is a strategic advantage and opens the door to creative solutions, providing a competitive edge in air, space and cyberspace.”

The spokesperson said the “slide on ‘inclusive language’ was intended to demonstrate how respect for others should be used to build inclusive teams, producing more effective warfighting units.”

“Understanding a person’s context shows respect,” they added. “Until you know a person’s situation, we should not make assumptions about them.”

The slide presentation titled, “Diversity & Inclusion: What it is, why we care, & what we can do,” advises cadets to use “person-centered” and gender-neutral language when describing individuals.

“Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,'” the presentation states. “Use words that include all genders​: ‘Folks’ or ‘Y’all’ instead of ‘guys’; ‘partner’ vs. ‘boyfriend or girlfriend.’”

“Not ‘Colorblind’ or ‘I don’t see color,’ but Color Conscious,” it adds. “We see Color/Patterns AND VALUE people for their uniqueness.”

Cotton said in a tweet, “The Biden Pentagon needs to stop focusing on getting rid of gender-specific language like “mom” and “dad” at America’s service academies and instead focus on the recruiting crisis our military faces.”

In Colorado, The  Air Force Academy is encouraging cadets to apply for a fellowship program for “gender minorities” that specifies “cisgender” men need not apply.

The academy sent an email on Sept. 14 informing cadets that the 2023 application for the Brooke Owens Fellowship for “undergraduate women and gender minorities interested in aerospace” is due by Oct. 10.

The application on the fellowship’s website says, “If you are a cisgender man, this program isn’t for you.”

“If you are a cisgender woman, a transgender woman, non-binary, agender, bigender, two-spirit, demigender, genderfluid, genderqueer, or another form of gender minority, this program is for you,” the application states. “If you are a cisgender man, this program isn’t for you… but we encourage you to check out our spinoff programs, the Patti Grace Smith Fellowship and the Matthew Isakowitz Fellowship Program.”

The USAFA’s email said the Brooke Owens Fellowship is a “nine-week paid internship at a leading aerospace company” and that any undergraduate who is a “woman or gender minority” is welcome to apply.

(RepublicanWire.org) – The Department of Homeland Security has reportedly verified that the Venezuelan government is releasing violent criminals from its prisons and sending them to the United States.

GOP Rep. Troy Nehls of Texas tweeted Sunday, “DHS confirms that Venezuela empties prisons and sends violent criminals to our southern border.”

Fox News contributor Sara Carter, who has reported extensively from the border, responded to Nehl’s tweet, “This is exactly what I have been warning about. We are being exploited at Biden’s chaotic purposeful border policy by all our adversaries.”

When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the presidency in 2015, he said the U.S. had become the “dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.”

“They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” he said.

Nehls’ tweet came the same day that Breitbart reported that a DHS intelligence report received by U.S. Border Patrol agents instructed them to be on the lookout for Venezuelan convicts.

“The report … indicates the Venezuelan government, under the leadership of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is purposely freeing inmates — including some convicted of murder, rape, and extortion,” according to the news outlet.

Randy Clark, the writer of the Breitbart piece, is a 32-year veteran of Border Patrol, having directed operations at nine Border Patrol stations within the Del Rio, Texas, sector, his byline states.

A Customs and Border Protection source told Clark that Maduro’s releasing of convicts is reminiscent of a similar action taken by Cuban dictator Fidel Castro during the Mariel boatlift in 1980.

The source said that identifying Venezuelan convicts among the thousands of illegal migrants is nearly impossible.

Between October 2021 and July 2022, “more than 130,000 Venezuelan migrants have been encountered after entering the United States illegally,” Breitbart reported, citing CBP statistics.

Over 2.1 million migrants had been encountered at the southwest border in fiscal year 2022 as of the end of August, which set a new record.

That is up from approximately 1.7 million in FY 2021 and 458,000 in FY 2020, the last year of Trump’s presidency.

(RepublicanWire.org) – President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill had to wait to take their seats at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral Monday – because they didn’t arrive on time.

Heads of state were expected to arrive at Westminster Abbey and be seated in a 20-minute period between 9.35am and 9.55am. But, because the Bidens were tardy, they were forced forced to wait for a procession of George and Victoria Cross-holders to pass down the nave of the abbey before they could take their seats.

The Bidens sat in the 14th row, immediately behind the Polish leader.

“US President Joe Biden will be 14 rows back on the south transept behind the Polish leader and in front of the Czech Republic. The First Lady Jill Biden will be next to Switzerland.

“Directly across the aisle from Mr. Biden’s place, the seat was labelled the Republic of Korea.”

“Perhaps as a consequence of opting out of the buses taking other leaders from the assembly point at Royal Hospital Chelsea, the Bidens were also given seats 14 rows back in the south transept of the abbey,” The Guardian reported Monday.

However, The UK Daily Mail reports that “Funeral seating has a strict protocol for the heads of state, prime ministers and presidents, members of European royal families and other guests among the 2,000 mourners gathered at the abbey.” Thus, the floor plan placed the Bidens in the 14th row.

While other world leaders traveled together in a bus – and arrived on time – the Bidens chose to travel to the funeral alone in the president’s armored limo. Reportedly, “The Beast” got stuck in traffic, causing the First Couple to miss their window to be seated on time.

When it came time to sign the official condolence guest book, again, Biden managed to turn heads. As he sat to fill in his solemn respects, he did so while working off one of his now infamous note sheets.

(RepublicanWire.org) – On CBS Evening News Monday anchor Norah O’Donnell and senior White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe reported on President Joe Biden’s disastrous interview with 60 Minutes Sunday. As part of the report, O’Keefe noted how many of Biden’s statements needed to be corrected or clarified by his handlers afterward. 

Biden was such a trainwreck that O’Donnell opened with this stunning report: “there is fallout tonight after President Biden’s interview with 60 Minutes, comments he made about the pandemic, led stocks of three COVID vaccine makers to plunge, shares falling as much as nine percent.” 

“President Biden’s conclusion on 60 Minutes Sunday that the COVID pandemic has ended prompted push-back from health experts and clarifications from top officials,” O’Keefe noted. 

“Make no mistake, people are still dying. And what the President is saying is that we all want to get back to where we were before COVID,” Health and Human Services Secretary, Xavier Becerra stated.

 CBS aired a soundbite of Fauci attempting to revive the pandemic by claiming “it is likely that we will see another variant emerge, and there’s already on the horizon.” 

Biden was also asked about whether he plans to run for reelection. 

“You say that it’s much too early to make that decision. I take it the decision has not been made in your own head,”  Pelley remarked.

Biden said, “look, my intentions I said to begin with is that I would run again, but it’s just an intention.

Is it a firm decision, that I’d run again? That remains to be seen.

O’Keefe ended by reporting that “the President also told 60 Minutes the U.S. Military would defend Taiwan against a quote unprecedented attack from China.” 

“White House officials later clarified U.S. White House policy towards Taiwan hasn’t changed. The Chinese called the President’s comments, well they said they sent the wrong signal,” O’Keefe noted before tossing back to O’Donnell. 

(RepublicanWire.org) – Gloria Romero is a Latina Democrat from California, and the former Majority Leader of the California State Senate. Romero called out the “smug liberals” in her defense of the Republican Florida governor for sending the migrants to the island in the state of Massachusetts. 

“I am telling you that if the Democratic party thinks that Latinos are outraged by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sending migrants to Martha’s Vineyard – they are dead wrong!

More than two million undocumented immigrants will be arrested trying to cross into the U.S. in 2022.

And Democrats don’t bat an eye.

But fly 50 migrants to one of the wealthiest places in America, spotted with multi-million dollar mansions, surrounded by the mega-yachts of the rich and famous and Democrats lose their minds?

What a joke!” It was Reported.

Romero points out that liberals want open borders until the border comes to their town. They never worry about the consequences of their policies when the problem is far away in the border towns along the U.S./Mexico border. 

She applauded Governor DeSantis in Florida, Governor Abbott in Texas, and Governor Ducey in Arizona for sending a powerful message. These governors are helping the Democrats do their “fair share” in dealing with our broken immigration system.

While CNN is calling what DeSantis did a stunt, all of America can see how the residents of Martha’s Vineyard reacted to the arrival of 50 illegal immigrants. The Massachusetts governor called in the National Guard to deal with what they considered a “humanitarian crisis.” 

The migrants were taken by bus from St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church on the first part of their journey to Joint Base Cape Cod. The signage on the island may say how welcoming they are, but their actions speak otherwise.

Romera goes on to point out that the “Latino agenda is the American agenda.” She highlights the fact that many of the Latino communities along the southern border are rural and poor but are expected to shoulder the burden of the cost of having thousands of migrants flood their towns.

While critics on the left have compared the Republican strategy to human trafficking and “kidnapping,” migrants involved have consented to travel to “sanctuary cities” that promise more care and resources for them.

Despite “sanctuary cities” scrambling to move these migrants out, these cities haven’t changed their stances on immigration. As they sent the newly arrived migrants away, officials in Martha’s Vineyard claimed that the foreigners had “enriched” the island, in line with their original perspectives.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Keith Olbermann is furious CNN demoted Don Lemon Thursday. He called CNN a sh*tshow and trashed new CNN boss Chris Licht.

Keith said, Chris Licht (who, when we worked together at MSNBC, I believed used to eat paste) has now surrounded Don Lemon with an ex-Daily Caller “journalist” and somebody who last month demanded an apology from Biden to Republicans.

“The @CNN Sh*tstorm is here.(And @brikeilarcnn’s cut-and-pasted complaint about Biden’s marines, and doubling and tripling down on this pathetic and hypocritical conservative talking point, did not save her. You can never be sufficiently doctrinaire for TV Fascists like Licht and John Malone)”

Lemon lost his primetime show at CNN amid a shakeup and will be moved to mornings at 6 a.m. 

Joining Lemon will be anchor Poppy Harlow and White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins.

“This demonstrates our commitment to the morning and how important it is to me,” CNN’s new boss Chris Licht said. “The show will set the tone of the entire day, and it will set the tone for the news organization.”

Licht is still searching for a permanent host for the 9 p.m. role that Chris Cuomo had before he was fired and now will fill lemon’s spot as well.

Harlow said, “Don has been one of my closest friends for more than a decade — there for every milestone along the way.

“I’m consistently in awe of Kaitlan’s reporting and the remarkable woman she is. I can’t wait to laugh with them and learn from them each morning.”

Lemon said, “I was honestly floored when Chris Licht asked me to do this, and I’m honored by his belief in me.”

Collins said, “I can’t wait to wake with our viewers and do the news every day.

“So pour a cup of coffee and join us.”
