(RepublicanWire.org) – President Joe Biden addressed the nation Tuesday night about the tragic news coming out of Uvalde, Texas. Another horrific school shooting had occurred, that left at least 19 children, 2 adults, and the shooter dead. 

Many noticed that during his remarks, Biden didn’t use the time to honor the victims and their families. Instead, he rehashed old jokes about deer wearing kevlar, and ranted using the school shooting to slam gun lobbyist while reading the teleprompter. 

In the beginning Biden was speaking with emotion and from personal experience about what it feels like to lose a child.

“I hoped when I became president I would not have to do this again. Another massacre, Uvalde, Texas, an elementary school. Beautiful, innocent second, third, fourth graders. And how many scores of little children who witnessed what happened, see their friends die as if they are on a battlefield, for God’s sake?” Biden began.

“To lose a child is like having a piece of your soul ripped away. There’s a hollowness in your chest, you feel like you are being sucked into it and never going to be able to get out. You’re suffocating. And it’s never quite the same,” the president continued. “It’s a feeling shared by the siblings and their grandparents and the family members and the community that is left behind. Scripture says, Jill and I have talked about this in different contexts, the lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. So many crushed spirits.”

Biden quickly pivoted, however, blaming the “gun lobby” and demanding that something be done about “assault weapons.”

“As a nation, we have to ask when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When in God’s name are we going to do what we all know in our gut needs to be done?” he asked.

Claiming that mass shootings had gone down under the assault weapons ban and “tripled” after it expired, Biden continued, “The idea that an 18-year-old kid can walk into a gun store and buy two assault weapons is just wrong! What in God’s name do you need an assault weapon for except to kill someone? Deer aren’t running through the forest with kevlar vests on, for God’s sake! It’s just sick!”

Biden concluded his remarks with a clear warning to his political opponents, saying that he would “not forget” those who stood in the way of “common sense gun laws” going forward.

“Why are we willing to live with this carnage? Why do we keep letting this happen? Where in God’s name is our backbone?” Biden asked, demanding that people step up and “turn pain into action.”

“We have to make it clear to every elected official in this country, it’s time to act. It is time for those who obstruct or delay or block the common sense gun laws, we need to let you know that we will not forget. We can do so much more. We have to do more,” he said.

(RepublicanWire.org) – U.S. Border Patrol allowed a suspected terrorist, who was released after crossing the southern border, to remain in the country for nearly two weeks before authorizing his arrest.

The individual in question was Isnardo Garcia-Amado, 35-year-old citizen of Colombia, who crossed into the U.S. on April 18th near Yuma, Arizona, Fox News reported. After crossing the border, per normal protocol, he was registered with U.S. Border Patrol, given a GPS tracking band, and released into the country with a date for a hearing before an immigration judge.

Three days later, the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center flagged Garcia-Amado’s name after reviewing entry logs by U.S. Border Patrol. They determined that he was a match to an entry on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB), the United States’ central database for listed terrorists. As of 2017, the TSDB contains the names of over 1.1 million persons, whose terrorist ties have not been updated. Under 5,000 U.S. citizens are also on the list.

Though the FBI flagged Garcia-Amado’s name on that date, April 21st, ICE did not receive authorization to arrest him until May 4th, a full 13 days after he had entered the U.S. He was found less than 48 hours later, in Pinellas Country, Fla., on May 6th. He is presently in ICE custody, awaiting deportation to Colombia.

In response to questions about the competence of U.S. Border Patrol for letting a terrorist into the country, a Department of Homeland Security spokesman told Fox News that “DHS is focused on those who pose a threat to our national security, public safety, and border security.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – DeSantis didn’t hold back while speaking to a crowd recently. He told the crowd, the Mexican drug cartels should make Biden an honorary member for his open border policy that has allowed them to expand the amount of drugs they bring into the country.

DeSantis signed a bill into law that would stiffen the penalty for fentanyl. The penalties for trafficking fentanyl in Florida will increase to three years to seven years for 4-14 grams, and fifteen to twenty years for 14-28 grams. Fentanyl is much more deadly than heroin and it can be brought into the country from Mexico through our porous border. It only takes a small amount to cause death.

DeSantis said, “Floridians of all walks of life have witnessed the destruction caused by the opioid epidemic across our state. While the Biden administration has failed to stop the flow of dangerous drugs, including fentanyl, across our southern border, we are taking action in Florida to lower both the demand and the supply of illicit and illegal drugs.”

DeSantis continued with, “If you look at what’s going on at the southern border right now. I don’t think we’ve ever seen anything like this, with the massive numbers of people that are coming across the border illegally. It’s fueling a massive infusion of fentanyl into this country.”

First Lady Casey DeSantis in a statement, “earlier today, I held an assembly at a school in Kissimmee to heighten students’ understanding of the dangerous and life-altering effects of substance use and abuse. Our initiative, The Facts. Your Future., not only tells our youth to say no to drugs, but also teaches them why. I am proud of Governor DeSantis for signing into law enhanced penalties for the sale and distribution of opioids today. We’re committed to tackling this problem from all angles and striving for a drug-free Florida.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – A federal judge on Friday temporarily blocked the Biden administration from ending the Title 42 public health order on May 23, stopping the administration from a move that had seen significant Republican and Democratic opposition amid fears it would exacerbate the border crisis.

Judge Robert Summerhays, in the Western District of Louisiana, granted a preliminary injunction on the Biden administration’s plan to end the order on May 23. It was in response to a lawsuit by two dozen Republican states, led by Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri.

Summerhays, in his order, said that the record supports the states’ position “that the Termination Order will result in increased border crossings and that, based on the government’s estimates, the increase may be as high as three-fold.” He also agreed with states that lifting Title 42 will increase costs on healthcare and education and said the government did not dispute that claim.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had announced in April that the order, which has been used since March 2020 to expel a majority of migrants at the southern border due to the COVID-19 pandemic, would expire at the end of May.

“After considering current public health conditions and an increased availability of tools to fight COVID-19, such as highly effective vaccines and therapeutics, the CDC Director has determined that an Order suspending the right to introduce migrants into the United States is no longer necessary,” the agency said.

The lawsuit claims the administration failed to estimate or account for the costs to the states. They cite “increased health care costs for aliens infected with COVID-19 and the cost of increased illegal immigration caused by the Termination Order and the presence of much greater numbers of paroled aliens with non-meritorious asylum claims who were induced to enter the United States because of the Termination Order.”

“This suit challenges an imminent, man-made, self-inflicted calamity: the abrupt elimination of the only safety valve preventing this administration’s disastrous border policies from devolving into an unmitigated catastrophe.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – In November, the Democratic Party could see some rather massive losses. Just about everyone is talking about the assumed “red wave” that’s on the horizon and how it may just cost the Democrats their already slim hold on power.

Now, considering how November will hold midterm congressional elections only, Biden, or at least his position as president, isn’t really at risk, at least not in any direct sense. However, there is great reason for him to be concerned.

Biden is apparently building up his legal team in preparation.

As The New York Times reported, Dana Remus, one of Biden’s primary White House attorneys, has hired yet another lawyer for Biden. According to the report, Richard A Sauber has been brought on to lay “the groundwork to defend against an expected onslaught of oversight investigations by congressional Republicans.”

As you well know, with both the House of Representatives and US Senate being controlled by the Democratic Party, Biden has been able to wriggle out of most situations in which he might be in the wrong – and that includes a great number of possible investigations.

However, should the Republicans succeed in November as everyone expects them to, that could all change. Should the GOP retake the House, Senate, or both, Biden could see himself in the middle of a whole slew of legal trouble.

And so he’s preparing by bringing on one of the nation’s top criminal defense lawyers. According to The Times, Sauber currently serves as the lead lawyer for the Department of Veterans Affairs and has been a “longtime white-collar defense lawyer.”

In addition, The Times noted that Biden has been working on getting his affairs in order for some time now. In fact, as the report says, Biden and Remus have been meeting with Biden’s personal lawyer, Bob Bauer, “for months to work out potential divisions of labor between White House lawyers and outside counsel.”

Biden is trying to separate issues that belong to the White House and his executive power from that of his personal or family life, as well as make sure that your hard-earned tax dollars aren’t paying for his personal lawyer and any issues he might have to defend.

Those issues may include things like his family’s penchant for crime and covering it up. Or his son’s shady business dealings, of which evidence is emerging that Biden himself may have been a part.

On the White House side, Biden could soon find himself being investigated for things like his atrocious withdrawal from Afghanistan, his continued failures at our southern border, inflation and gas prices, and many more.

And, of course, there is a massive chance his handling of COVID-19 will be investigated thoroughly. In particular, are the actions and words of Biden-approved White House chief medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

As Republican Texas Representative Chip Roy said in March, Fauci’s insistence on things like the vaccine mandates and school closures have led to a number of serious problems, including deaths that could have been prevented. Roy wants to talk about the number of people who have died from myocarditis and the many who have now lost their jobs and livelihoods. The workers who were fired for not taking “a jab.”

He wants to discuss the many children who now have to endure speech therapy because of the vaccines or the thousands of youths who suffer from mental health issues and drug addictions because of months of isolation.

Someone needs to answer for this. And if not Fauci, then possibly Biden.

No wonder Biden is adding to his legal team. He’s obviously got a lot he should be held accountable for. And should the Republicans gain power in November, you can be sure they will waste little time investigating Biden and his party’s part in the downward trend America is currently on.

(ReublicanWire.org) – Many people are concerned that that trial of Michael Sussmann, Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer, may not be fair. Sussmann is charged with making a false statement to the FBI.

The jury appears to be anything but fair. In all honesty, juries are always problematic for Republicans or conservatives in D.C. Just ask Roger Stone, a Trump ally, who was convicted of obstruction of justice by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller said Stone knew about WikiLeaks, while Stone said he did not. The jury, which included a far-left Democrat activist, convicted Stone. When the judge found out, he did absolutely nothing to give him a new and fair trial.

Many Jan. 6 protesters still awaiting trial are taking their chances on bench trials with a judge rather than subjecting themselves to a jury pool that overwhelmingly consists of far-left Democrats, federal employees, and members of the swamp where 92.1% voted for Biden. Polls of the D.C. population show “that while 80 percent of D.C. residents think defendants will receive a fair trial in the District, 1 in 5 admit that they would have their doubts if they were the ones charged, and 1 in 10 don’t believe trials will be fair.”

Now, providing a possible mistrial or appealable issue for the prosecution, the Washington Times reports that juror number five is the mother of a friend of defendant Michael Sussmann’s daughter. The judge, whose own connections raise questions about his objectivity, doesn’t think that’s a problem.

The jury includes one federal government employee who told the judge they donated to Democrats in 2016 and another government employee who told the judge they ‘strongly’ dislike former President Trump. The jury also includes a teacher, an illustrator, a mechanic and more.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Controversies have surrounded the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. Federal probes have been launched into the foundation over their lack of financial transparency.

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors is stepping down as executive director over public outcry after it was revealed that she used charity funds to purchase multiple million-dollar mansions while BLM chapters across the nation never received the donations.

Besides splurging on herself, Cullors paid Trap Heals LLC, a company owned by Damon Turner, nearly $970,000 for “creative services” and to help “produce live events.” Turner is the father of Cullor’s child.

The foundation paid more than $840,000 to Cullors Protection LLC, a security firm owned by Patrisse’s brother, Paul Cullors, for providing “security services.”

Shalomyah Bowers, who previously served as deputy executive director of BLM Global Network Foundation, defended contracting Paul Cullors’ security firm because the foundation felt its protection could not be entrusted to former police officers.

The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million of donations it received in 2020, which is expected to become an endowment to ensure the foundation’s work continues in the future.

Now Cullors has taken a break from her donation cash-funded lavish lifestyle to blast BLM’s donors, claiming the group is flooded with “white guilt money.”

Cullors made the remarks during MSNBC’s “Into America” podcast posted Monday afternoon.

She was speaking in response to a question from host Trymaine Lee, who had asked if the organization’s “tsunami of flooding” was shocking.

Lee asked Cullors if BLM had guardrails in place to ensure its cash was “being directed in the proper ways.”

“Yes, it was a major shock,” Cullors said on the podcast.

“It was also a lot of like, ‘Oh, wait, I did not see that coming.'”

“You know, contrary to what, you know, has been reported, much of the funding that came in was from individual donors,” Cullors continued.

“That was a lot of white guilt money,” she alleged.

“There’s a lot of white folks being like, ‘We just got to put the money.”

Cullors, however, did not directly answer if guardrails were in place for its spending.

She has maintained they did not misuse its funds.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Michael Flynn, the former Trump National Security Advisor, just filed a $50 million claim against the FBI and Justice Department for “malicious prosecution” over the Trump Russia collusion investigation.

Flynn filed it on Feb. 22. It names the DOJ, FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington D.C., Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, and the Executive Office of the President as defendants. The claim alleges former President Barack Obama and the FBI had a vendetta against him.

The filing says, “Of all of President Trump’s appointees, the Obama White House hated Flynn the most. The FBI began to express disdain for candidate Donald J. Trump and began to consider ways in which it could hamper Donald Trump as candidate or as President, were he to win the 2016 election.

“As part of these efforts, the FBI began to target Flynn. Flynn was no stranger to the FBI and its leadership, many of whom considered Flynn to be a personal enemy of the FBI and the success of their own FBI careers.

“During this meeting, the participants agreed to try to damage incoming President Trump and his new Administration, including by trying to prosecute Flynn, President-elect Trump’s incoming National Security Advisor, to cause him to resign as NSA, to cripple President Trump’s ability to implement national security and foreign affairs policy changes, and potentially to get Flynn to turn on President Trump.

“On or about November 10, 2016, two days after the Presidential Election, President-elect Trump met with President Obama in the Oval Office. During this meeting, President Obama warned President-elect Trump he had profound concerns about hiring Flynn for any sensitive, high-level national security positions.

“President Obama made this statement despite himself having appointed Flynn to the position of Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2012.

“In 2014, Flynn roiled FBI leadership by intervening on behalf of Robyn Gritz, a decorated counterterrorism agent who specifically named and accused Andrew McCabe and other top FBI officials of sexual discrimination and retaliation in her complaint.

“Flynn’s support of Gritz included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case, and an offer to testify on her behalf. 

“His offer to testify made him a hostile witness against McCabe, who was soaring through the FBI leadership ranks. 

“The FBI even sought to block Flynn’s support for the agent, asking a federal administrative law judge in May 2014 to keep Flynn from becoming a witness.

“Flynn was the target of a politically motivated investigation and prosecution that had no merit when it began, no merit during its course, and no merit in the end when the charges were withdrawn by the DOJ and ultimately dismissed by the Court after Flynn received a full pardon.

“During that meritless and unlawful investigation and prosecution, Flynn was falsely and maliciously painted by the conspirators as a traitor to his nation who acted in concert with a foreign power, and the SCO even threatened Flynn’s son with prosecution unless Flynn were to plead guilty. 

“The federal government’s targeting of a citizen for baseless criminal prosecution and eliciting a plea bargain through threatening of family members is outrageous conduct of the highest order. The fact that it was orchestrated and carried out at the highest levels of the FBI, DOJ, and White House makes it all the more outrageous.”

Flynn  is seeking “compensatory damages including but not limited to lost past and future earnings/revenue, emotional distress, lost opportunity to be President’s National Security Advisor, significant restraints of personal liberty, attorney fees/expenses and court costs in defending against malicious prosecution, abuse of process, false arrest.”

Flynn’s lawyer Jesse Binnall said if the claim is denied Flynn will sue:

“For years government bureaucrats and left wing agitators believed they could attack General Flynn with impunity. No more.

“If you wrongfully attack an American hero, then you should be held to account.

“This Federal Tort Claims Act Action is just the beginning of that accountability. Lt. General Michael Flynn will no longer be the pin cushion of the radical left.”

(RepublicanWire) – A couple weeks ago Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, suggested that Biden will be impeached if Republicans win back control of Congress in 2022.

“I think there will be enormous pressure on a Republican House to begin impeachment proceedings. I think there are potentially multiple grounds to consider for impeachment. Probably the most compelling is the utter lawlessness is President Biden to enforce the border. His decision to just deify immigration laws,” Cruz stated.

“That’s probably the strongest grounds right now for impeachment but there may be others,” he noted further.

Just this week former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon also predicted that Joe Biden will be impeached in November.

“You have stood down ICE and you’ve stood down Border Patrol, and guess what? That’s the impeachment hearing I want to hear,” Bannon said during an episode on his War Room podcast.

“You’re going to sit there day after day and week after week and we’re going to bring the witnesses,” Bannon continued, in an attack that appeared to be aimed at Biden. “We’re going to bring the witnesses of what you did to this country and what you did on the southern border.”

“Preserve your documents because after impeachment, they’re going to put you up on criminal charges. Criminal charges for allowing this country to be invaded by your actions,” Bannon said.

“Acts of commission not acts of omission,” said Bannon. “We’re not going to back down, so write it down. This November is about one thing: it’s impeaching Joe Biden to stop this madness and to stop this illegitimate regime from destroying our nation.”

Customs and Border Protection data reveals that agents apprehended nearly 2 million immigrants entering the country illegally along the U.S.-Mexico border during the 2021 calendar year.

That figure is up from nearly 1 million illegal aliens apprehended in the 2019 calendar year.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Netflix management won’t bow down to woke employees. They said they are changing their “culture guidelines” to reflect the view that the company offers a wide range of entertainment programming for many different kinds of audiences.

And if the employees don’t like the content, they can always quit.

“We let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices,” Netflix writes in the updated part of its culture memo. The company said that it supports offering diversity in stories, “even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values.”

“Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful,” Netflix says. “If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you.”

A Netflix spokesman said the company updated its culture page on Thursday for the first time since 2017. He said Netflix had spent the past 18 months discussing cultural issues internally with employees. The new language was added, he said, “so that prospective employees could understand our position, and make better informed decisions about whether Netflix is the right company for them.”

Netflix said, “they realize that the more you give to these woke hysterics, the more they want. And the more Netflix gives, the more it detracts from its bottom line.”

For Netflix, the company spokesman said, “employees were given a chance to offer feedback on the new culture guidelines.” He said the company received more than 1,000 comments, which helped shape the new part of the memo.

Netflix is coming off a disappointing quarterly report last month which showed it lost subscribers for the first time in over a decade. Revenue also grew at its slowest pace in years amid rising competition from new and existing streaming rivals. The company said it is exploring offering a lower priced ad-supported version of the platform to help boost its subscriber base.

Shares of Netflix, which surged at the beginning of the pandemic, have fallen by nearly 70% this year.

Companies are, generally speaking, only as woke as their bottom line allows them to be. Netflix is not going to give up the profits that a Dave Chapelle show will generate just to satisfy the transgender lobby among their employees.

They will not sacrifice their brand on the altar of woke activism.
