(RepublicanWire.org) – On Monday, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador actually said out loud during a press conference that Mexico is safer than the United States.

This response was in reference to the brutal cartel killings of two Americans and additional kidnapping of two others. President López Obrador continued by claiming that U.S. travel warnings and reports of violence in Mexico are exaggerated, and to take things a step further, actually a conspiracy by conservative politicians and the media just so they can make him look bad.

“Mexico is safer than the United States,” he assured the press. “There is not problem in traveling safely in Mexico.”

“These conservative politicians… dominate the majority of the news media in the United States,” he added. “This violence is not a reality. It is pure, vile manipulation.”

According to the Global Conflict Tracker put together by the Center for Preventative Action which was updated in January of this year:

“By 2016, drug-related homicides had increased by 22 percent, with more than twenty thousand killed, and in 2017 a mass grave containing the remains of more than 250 victims of crime-related violence was uncovered in Veracruz State. Since 2006, crime-related violence has resulted in an estimated 150,000 deaths.”

Mexico’s nationwide homicide rate is about 28 per 100,000 inhabitants. By comparison, the U.S. homicide rate is barely one-quarter as high, at around 7 per 100,000.

The U.S. State Department has placed “do not travel” advisories on six Mexican states which have been the forefront of intense violence by the drug cartels.

(RepublicanWire.org) – On Wednesday morning, news broke that a California man was arrested for attempting to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his home. The man was intercepted before he was able to break into the justice’s house. He was carrying a gun, pepper spray, and burglary tools. There’s also no ambiguity about what his intentions were–given he admitted he was there to kill Kavanaugh.

The man was also reportedly motivated by the leaked draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, which brings us to the obvious question: Did Democrats incite this attempted attack?

Let’s recall that Democrat, Chuck Schumer, used violent rhetoric in response to the possibility of Roe being overturned.

When you tell people that the justices are fascists looking to take away your “right” to kill a baby, while insisting that they must be stopped, is it any surprise some people might take that to the extreme? That’s what appears to have happened here, and Ted Cruz along with others let Democrats have it over their inciteful rhetoric.

if this were a liberal justice, it’d be used as an indictment of the entire right, with sweeping generalizations and demands from every GOP politician alive to condemn what happened.

The simple fact of the matter is that Democrats never want to play by their own rules. They want to be able to assert that using the word “fight” is violent incitement when it’s Trump saying it, but when it’s Warren saying it, it’s just her showing passion. When a Republican uses any kind of physical imagery in a political speech, that’s incitement, but when Schumer does it, it’s just an expression.

As an exercise in frustration, just try to imagine what the response would be if Cruz had said to Sonia Sotomayer that she would “reap the whirlwind” so hard that “you won’t know what hit you.” We’d be having congressional hearings over it. But again, the rules don’t apply to Democrats.

In fact, another group of protesters have gathered outside his house.

For the court to be intimated at this point would destroy it as an institution. That can’t be allowed to happen. Cruz is also spot-on. Democrats own the heated environment they’ve created, and it’s up to them to take the temperature down. If you keep telling people they are going to “lose their democracy” every time the left doesn’t get its way, bad things are bound to happen.
