(GLOBALIST AT WORK) – Mitt Romney: Putin, Kim Deserve ‘Censure,’ Not ‘Flattery’

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Monday took a veiled swipe at President Donald Trump’s diplomatic approach to Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, arguing they “deserve a censure rather than flattery,” reports the Salt Lake Tribune.

Romney, an outspoken critic of the administration, jabbed the president without naming him in a prepared speech at an event held by the Sutherland Institute, a right-of-center think tank based in Salt Lake City.

“I think demonstrating personal character is one of the most important responsibilities of a leader of the land,” the Utah Republican continued. In an attempt to denuclearize a belligerent North Korea, President Trump has participated in two summits with Kim and exchanged several letters. The president also met with Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in a bid to repair ties left in tatters by the Obama administration.

Romney, who was soundly defeated by President Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election, has heavily criticized President Trump — most notably during the 2016 election, describing him as a  “con man,” and a “fake.” However, in a show of unity, president-elect Trump put aside Romney’s criticism and interviewed him for the position of Secretary of State, a job which ultimately went to former Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson.

During the 2018 midterm election, President Trump endorsed Romney, which the then-senate candidate gladly accepted. Just when the pair’s relationship appeared to be on the mend, Romney once again attacked President Trump with a Washington Post opinion-editorial published two days before he was sworn into office. The Utah Republican recently slammed President Trump for suggesting he may be open to receiving opposition research on his political opponents from foreign governments, calling the idea “unthinkable.” Days later, the president rejected the hypothetical scenario, saying he would alert federal authorities if his campaign was approached.

Later in his speech before the think tank, Romney criticized far-left proposals such as the Green New Deal and “Medicare for All,” advocated by several 2020 White House hopefuls.

At one point, Romney also conceded his “slice of Republican Party these days is about that big,” placing his hands closely together, before claiming he is not “100 percent sold on everything my current party’s establishment is doing.”

“I am aligned with the Republican conservative philosophy and believe that our Democratic friends are taking us in a very different direction, which would be most unfortunate to our future,” said the lawmaker.

 

Bernie Sanders: Trump Is the ‘Most Dangerous President’ in U.S. History

LITTLETON, New Hampshire — Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) rounded out his two-day swing through New Hampshire at an ice cream social on Tuesday afternoon, telling a packed crowd at the Littleton Opera House that Donald Trump is “the most dangerous president” in American history.

Sanders’s pitch to the audience of 327 people — some of whom had traveled from Vermont and Massachusetts to see him — was that his campaign is best placed to defeat Trump nationwide.

A new poll Tuesday showed Sanders leading in New Hampshire, where he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016. During that campaign, Sanders told voters that he had a better chance of defeating Trump than Clinton. Nearly four years later, many of his supporters feel that prediction has been vindicated.

Sanders touted Medicare for All, as well as proposals for gun control. He called for expanding background checks, banning “assault weapons,” ending the “gun show loophole” that allows people to purchase guns at gun shows without background checks, and for shutting down what he called the “straw man provision” — which he claimed would allow someone to “walk into a gun store, buy a dozen guns, and sell those guns to criminal elements.”

(In fact, according to the pro-gun control Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, straw purchases are already illegal under federal law: “Federal law prohibits straw purchases by criminalizing the making of false statements to an FFL [federal firearms-licensed dealer] about a material fact on ATF Form 4473, or presenting false identification in connection with the firearm purchase.”)

Sanders also told the audience that “Medicare for All” enjoyed majority support — which is true, though polls also show “Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents” prefer a policy that builds on Obamacare, rather than replacing it with a single-payer system, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Sanders concluded by telling the audience that he was fighting the “corporate power elite in America whose greed and corruption has destroyed the middle class of the country.”

“I cannot take them on alone,” he added, urging them to join his effort to win the presidency. “That’s what this campaign is about … I am asking your help, the day after we are inaugurated, to work with me to stand up to the corporate elite and tell them that this country does not belong to a handful of billionaires. It belongs to all of us.”

During the question-and-answer session, answering a query about the Department of Veterans Affairs from a young veteran with a large blond Afro, Sanders quipped: “That’s what my hair looked like a few years ago.”

Edith Labonte, who drove to the event from Cabot, Vermont, told Breitbart News that she is confident Sanders will win the state.

“He’s gonna win. He has to,” she said. “He’s for the people. There’s no other president that has been directly for the people like he has … I love Bernie.”

Trump Ending Welfare-Dependent Immigration, Saving Taxpayers Billions

President Trump is set to save American taxpayers billions of dollars as his administration announces a new rule on Monday that will essentially ban welfare-dependent legal immigrants from permanently resettling in the United States.

A new regulation set to be published by the Trump administration will ensure that legal immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using subsidized healthcare services, food stamps, and public housing.

The regulation will be a boon for American taxpayers in the form of an annual $57.4 billion tax cut — the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants.

The National Academies of Science released a report two years ago, noting that state and local American taxpayers are billed about $1,600 each year per immigrant to pay for their welfare, where immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households.

A recent Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) study notes that about 63 percent of noncitizen households in the U.S. use at least one form of taxpayer-funded welfare, while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare. This means that noncitizen households use nearly twice as much welfare as native-born American households.

In California — with the largest noncitizen population in the country at almost 11 million or nearly 30 percent of the state’s total population — more than seven-in-ten, or 72 percent, of households headed by noncitizens are on at least one form of welfare. Compare that to the findings that only about seven-in-twenty, or 35 percent, of native-born households in California are on welfare.

Preventing Americans from being forced to foot the bill for welfare for newly arrived legal immigrants is hugely popular among U.S. voters. A Rasmussen Reports poll conducted in 2017 revealed that more than six-in-ten voters, or 62 percent, said they would support a plan that bans legal immigrants from receiving welfare for at least the first five years of their residency in the country. Roughly 67 percent of swing voters and nearly 60 percent of black Americans said they would support such a plan.

Another 76 percent of U.S. voters said welfare users should be mandated to prove that they are not in the country illegally before being allowed to obtain public benefits, including 74 percent of black Americans, 77 percent of swing voters, and 63 percent of Democrat voters.

Currently, there is an estimated record high of 44.5 million foreign-born residents living in the U.S. This is nearly quadruple the immigrant population in 2000. The vast majority of those arriving in the country every year are low-skilled legal immigrants who compete against working and middle-class Americans for jobs.

Five Of The Craziest Moments From The CNN Tuesday Night Democratic Debate (VIDEOS)

By Aleister – JULY 31, 2019

The first night of the second 2019 Democratic debate on CNN had some wild moments.

We’re not going to bother with the moments the candidates or the CNN audience liked.

We want to point out some of the crazier moments that will probably be overlooked by the media.

Here are five examples.

5. Marianne Williamson

While talking about Democrats taking corporate donations, Williamson invoked a joke from Seinfeld and suggested that voters are going to “yadda, yadda, yadda, right over them. Watch:

4. Pete Buttigieg

When the subject of the minimum wage came up, Pete Buttigieg, who frequently implies that he is more Christian than anyone else, suggested that you are not a decent Christian if you don’t support raising the minimum wage. Watch:

3. Don Lemon

CNN host Don Lemon was included as a moderator in this debate for some reason. He is not a journalist, he is an opinion guy and he absolutely hates Trump. He made that crystal clear with this question. Note the wording:

2. John King

John King, another CNN host, said something factual in his post-debate analysis. He suggested that this field of candidates is further left than any Democrat who has ever won the presidency, including Obama. Watch:

1. Elizabeth Warren

When asked a direct question about whether her healthcare plans would raise taxes on the middle class, Warren refused to give a straight answer. What a surprise. Watch:

Bonus: Bernie Sanders

Bernie got louder and louder as the night went on and Tim Ryan commented on it.

What a clown show.

Florida mosquitoes are carrying a deadly BRAIN-INFECTING virus

Screen Shot 2019-07-31 at 10.24.37 AM

A rare brain-infecting virus has been detected in Orange County, Florida, and residents have been advised to avoid mosquitoes, which carry the deadly disease.

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County released a public advisory warning that the mosquito-borne, brain-infecting Eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV) infection has been found in the area.

The risk of transmission to humans has increased after several sentinel chickens, which local governments use to monitor and track infectious diseases, tested positive for the killer virus. Residents have been told to avoid mosquitoes, as a bite from an infected mosquito can lead to fatal swelling of the brain.

EEEV infection can cause dangerous brain swelling which triggers headaches, convulsions, and even death, and just two days after symptoms start. Survivors of the brain swelling can be left with neurological impairments. Not everyone who contracts EEEV develops swelling of the brain, however; the majority develop flu-like symptoms or no symptoms at all.

There is no specific treatment or vaccine for EEEV available. There are an average of seven cases detected in the US each year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports.

Members of the public have been advised to cover their bodies, use mosquito repellent, to drain off any stagnant water and to use screens on doors and windows to keep mosquitoes from getting indoors.
