El Salvador’s president is battling US Democrats. He has Twitter spat and snubs visiting Biden envoy Aides to El Salvador, saying he refuses to meet with a visiting senior U.S. diplomat over what he sees as a pattern of slights from Democrats and the Biden administration.
“El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele refused to meet with a visiting senior U.S. diplomat this week over what he sees as a pattern of slights from Democrats and the Biden administration, according to two aides of the Central American leader,” Joshua Goodman wrote.
The Democrats have a disaster on their hands with their open border policies that are causing a firestorm of controversy in the United States and for the entire North American continent, leaving a trail of destroying lives over laziness and greed on the part of the Democrats.
“Bukele’s decision not to meet with Ricardo Zuniga, the Biden administration’s envoy to the so-called Northern Triangle countries of Central America, follows a similar snub he allegedly received from U.S. officials during an unannounced trip to Washington in February,” according to ABC News.

It also comes just days after Bukele’s government awarded $1.2 million lobbying contract to the State Department’s former top career diplomat in a bid to improve ties with the new American president.
Zuniga traveled Wednesday to El Salvador following talks in Guatemala focused on immigration amid a surge in child migrants on the U.S. border. Upon arrival, he immediately announced a $2 million U.S. contribution to an international commission seeking to strengthen the fight against corruption, which Biden officials see as one of the root causes of illegal immigration.
The Biden administration’s interventionist approach towards El Salvador shows a great lack of respect for our country and our president.
Specifically, the two said Bukele was angered by State Department spokesman Ned Price’s comments Monday that the U.S. looks forward to Bukele restoring a “strong separation of powers where they’ve been eroded and demonstrate his government’s commitment to transparency and accountability.”
But Bukele has told aides that he won’t meet with any Biden officials until the U.S. softens criticism raising doubts about his commitment to democracy and the rule of law, according to the two people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity given the diplomatic sensitivities.
NOT HAPPY WITH THE DEMOCRATS
El Salvador’s president is urging voters in a California congressional district to vote out its U.S. representative in the latest back-and-forth spat between the Central American head of state and one of Congress’ most vocal critics of the region’s leaders.
President Nayib Bukele and Democratic Rep. Norma Torres have been exchanging very undiplomatic barbs on Twitter this week.
Torres, who was born in Guatemala,fired the first salvo Wednesday when she retweeted a disturbing video released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection showing two toddler sisters being dropped into the United States by smugglers straddling a 14-foot-tall border wall. The two were picked up by U.S. agents and given medical attention.
Along with a link to the video, Torres tweeted — in Spanish — that the incident is “a great shame for the governments of #Guatemala #Honduras #ElSalvador their compatriots deserve governments that are truly committed to fighting corruption and narco[trafficking]!”
The two girls, ages 3 and 5, are from Ecuador, not any of the three countries Torres mentioned. The majority of the unaccompanied minors currently coming across the U.S. border are from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, collectively known as the Northern Triangle of Central America, according to CBP.
El Salvador’s Bukele, an avid Twitter user, hit back fast with his own Spanish-language tweet. “Look ma’am, did you read that the children are from ECUADOR and not from EL SALVADOR? Also, this happened on the border of Mexico with the United States. What does El Salvador have to do with this?”
The Salvadoran president then told Torres that she should buy some glasses with a portion of her “financier’s checks.”
Most Americans would side with the President of El Salvador.
The mayor of North Las Vegas has made the switch from the Democratic party to the Republican party after the latest election saw all socialists win and they then selected radical so0cialist leaders, leaving regular Democrats like Mayor John Lee out in the cold. it was too much for him and he pulled the trigger on the change of party.
He already was pro-life and pro-gun and held beliefs similar to Republicans, but he had been a lifelong Democrat.
“In the Democratic Party of Nevada, they had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the socialistic [sic] party. It’s not the party that I grew up with 25 years ago in this environment, and it’s not the party I can stand with any more.”
Lee was referring to elections for statewide officers in the party. The socialists put forth a slate of candidates and most of them won, taking over the heart and soul of the Democratic party in Nevada.
“The working class, the working men and women of this country and also the small business owners are not a part of the conversation any more. It all has to do with the elitists and it all has to do with the socialists. That is not the agenda that I have in mind for this country or the future.”
“When you’re a pro-life Democrat, a pro-gun Democrat, and you’re a very conservative person, that’s not really well known in the Democratic Party any more. And so for me to hang on as long as I did, hoping the party would change, it didn’t, it got worse.”
“So therefore, I found a new place that I can put my allegiance to and help. Once again, forget about the last eight years. It’s the next four years that predict the future.”
One has to wonder if this will drive more elected officials from the Democratic party but I seriously doubt it because this is where the entire party is headed as witnessed by Biden’s radical agenda.
Even more moderate Democrats with a lust for power will hold out and just go with the flow.
On the same day that the Senate Parliamentarian told Chuck Schumer that he could pass Biden’s so-called infrastructure bill through the reconciliation process, Sen Joe Manchin of WV drove a wooden stake through the bill’s heart by declaring that he was against the bill because of the increase in the corporate tax rate.
To make matters worse for Schumer (A practice I heartedly endorse) there are more Democratic Senators who will not vote for the bill.
After Democratic governors locked down their states and devastated their economies is hardly the time to put more pressure on an already shaky system.
The bill is supposed to raise money to pay fo0r the liberal wish list with no upside whatsoever. But, there is no guaranty that the bill would raise nearly the amount Biden and the Democrats are counting on since many corporations would move out of the country and could mean fewer taxes and not more.
Biden’s plan would raise corporate taxes from 21% to 28%.
When President Trump cut the rate from 35%, he unleashed the economy and the country saw the unemployment rate hit new lows but Biden insisted that the opposite would not be true.
Best of all, the unemployment rates for Blacks and Hispanics hit all-time lows. Democrats claim the lowest unemployment among Blacks happened under their watch until they were told slavery doesn’t count.
Sen. Joe Manchin, an influential centrist Democrat, warned Monday that the Biden administration’s massive infrastructure package can’t pass in its current form because he and a handful of other Senate Democrats believe the corporate tax hikes proposed in the bill — designed to offset its costs — are too steep.
“As the bill exists today, it needs to be changed,” he told West Virginia Metro News host Hoppy Kercheval in a radio interview when asked if he supported or opposed President Joe Biden’s $2.25 trillion proposal.
Manchin said he is against raising the current 21% corporate tax rate — which was put in place by the 2017 tax overhaul under the Trump administration — to 28% as called for in the bill and instead supports a middle ground 25% rate, which he called “fair.”
The West Virginia senator said he would use the “leverage” he has in the 50-50 Senate to demand changes before voting to take up the bill, which has been introduced but expected to go through weeks or months of negotiations before being debated on the floor.
After it was revealed that the attacker at the Capitol was a Black Muslim rather than a white Christian the news media either dropped the story or did not reveal the attacker’s race or religion. But as it has been revealed that Noah
Green, the attacker is a follower of Louis Farrakhan it is reminding people of how many Democrats have close ties to Farrakhan including James Clyburn, D-S.C., Rep. Danny Davis, D-Ill, Sen. Raphael Warnock, and Rep Maxine Waters.
The deceased suspect, Noah Green, included photos and videos of Nation of Islam rallies on his Facebook page. He also identified himself as a Follower of Farrakhan on his Facebook page.
Green was killed by a Capitol Police officer after he had already killed on cop and has a second one fighting for his life. He rammed the barricades surrounding the US Capitol and then he got out of his car with a knife and that’s when he was shot.
Democrats with connections to0 Farrakhan and their ties are:
House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., shared a stage with Farrakhan in 2011. After the event, Clyburn told the Final Call, the Nation of Islam’s media arm, that he was “not bothered in the least bit” by people criticizing his appearance with Farrakhan. Clyburn’s office didn’t immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.
Rep. Danny Davis, D-Ill, praised Farrakhan in 2018 as “an outstanding human being” who “does outstanding things.” Davis also said he wasn’t bothered by Farrakhan’s position on “the Jewish question,” before later mildly distancing himself from the Nation of Islam leader.
Georgia Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock has also spoken positively about Farrakhan’s group. Warnock, in 2013, said the Nation of Islam’s “voice has been important for the development of Black theology.” Warnock’s office didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif, has longstanding ties to Farrakhan and was seen on video hugging the Nation of Islam leader. \
Farrakhan praised suicide bombers:
“The Palestinians have nothing to defend themselves with, so they’re so exhausted and exasperated, think about that, strapping bombs to themselves, making themselves a weapon.”
“And then for the world to get upset because Iran or somebody is trying to send them some weapons. Wait a minute. If you were Jewish and you saw unarmed Jews being persecuted, wouldn’t you come to your brothers’ aid? Do you expect Muslims to see their brothers suffering like that and not come to their aid?”
On Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle” on Friday night, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted the Coca-Cola company for caving and jumping on the #MeTooAfraid movement after the Georgia legislature passed a bill to ensure election integrity in the wake of the 2020 Presidential election theft that every fact-checker reading this knows is true.
The senator from Kentucky pointed out that there are self-evident differences in what the Democrats are saying about the legislation and what is actually written in the legislation. In short, they’re lying, and that includes the president of the United States, Joe Biden.
“There is a distinction between in-person and by mail,” Paul said.
“All of these proposals are to trying to make it easy to vote but hard to cheat,” Paul said to host Laura Ingraham. “I’ve been involved with this. I’ve communicated with people in all 50 state legislatures, I’ve called them on the phone. I’ve talked to the conservative ALEC [American Legislative Exchange Council] group about this, and we’ve now passed it in Kentucky and we actually had more early voting days added, so it’s easier to vote, but you vote in person.
“There is nothing Jim Crow about this. In fact, what is very insulting and really just gets to me is they are implying that people of certain races are not able to comply with rules, show up, or have a driver’s license or figure this out.”
Paul added that people who implicitly believe that certain groups of voters (black people) would be disenfranchised by stipulations like obtaining a photo ID are “very racist in their thinking.” In fact, it never made sense to people with three-digit IQs when the Democrats first came out with the idea that voter ID was racist. Black people use ID every day to do common things in this country. Democrats are evil but they’re not that bright, and I think they were incapable of coming up with another argument to make, so they used their #1 weapon: play the race card.
“They think there are certain groups of our people who are incapable of following basic rules,” Rand continued. “I don’t think it’s true. I think the trend lines for all the different races voting have been good in our country for 20 or 30 years and all these election bills do is try to make it easier to vote but harder to cheat.”
Voter ID also secures the integrity of the vote for black people and people of color, just like everyone else. It’s across-the-board protection and isn’t that exactly what we want? Those nasty evil Republicans can’t steal their vote if there’s voter ID. That’s the argument that makes it so ridiculous on the face of it when Democrats call voter ID racist. It’s because voter ID really tamps down their ability to cheat in elections and Democrats absolutely 100% want to cheat.
Senator Paul likened what’s going on here to the extortion racket saying, “Jesse Jackson would do it years ago.” He continued, “He would protest in front of a big corporation that wasn’t doing anything wrong until they gave money to his organization, and then the protest would leave the organization.
“That’s what they are doing, they think they can bully.”
That’s what Cancel Culture is. It’s a bunch of losers who get a thrill out of being able to destroy someone’s life. They don’t care if there’s a reason to do it or if the reason they are using is legitimate or not. They feel power stomping on an innocent person and it makes them look like they truly are a legitimate member of the Woke Supremacy.
“Now Coca-Cola are telling people to apologize for being White, apologize for being arrogant, apologize for all of these things supposedly that white people are doing, and that’s a very racist sort of philosophy,” he said. “It’s this Woke sort of Critical Race Theory, but it’s now infected a publicly-traded company, and when they start saying things like that, they are actually going against what their mandate is. Their mandate is to maximize profit, but now they are turning off 40% of the country who don’t really want to be woke up and told that we’re horrible people.”
Critical Race Theory teaches that a certain group of people are inherently (read genetically) racist; they were born that way. Folks, that is the very definition of racism.
One of the hardest things in the world to do is to get Democrat6s to turn down campaign contributions yet this week three of them did.
It’s not that they didn’t want the money it’s because they did not want to be associated with the donor. And who was that donor? AOC. The three Democrats, Reps. Carolyn Bourdeaux, D-Ga., Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., and Conor Lamb, D-Penn – have all declined the money are committed themselves to return it.
It’s not hard to figure out why. By the time the 2022 midterms roll around, voters will be upset with their socialistic policies and any candidate that wants to not be smeared by the socialist tag cannot accept money from AOC.
Recently, a nonpartisan group from Vanderbilt University and the University of Virginia ranked members of the house for effectiveness. AOC ranked 230th among the 240 Democrats in the House.
All three Democrats who rejected the donations are in vulnerable House swing districts and they are all considered to be endangered in 2020. Normally threatened reps will scarf up every penny they can unless the donor is problematic and sometimes not even then.
AOC is on the endangered list herself as New York is expected to lose one or two seats and the rumor has been going around for two years that her seat will be one of the possible two seats the Democrats will abandon.
She would either have to run in a district with an incumbent Democrat or run for higher office. But, she has very little support outside of her district. But I am sure she will try something.
Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign reportedly received wire transfer information from DCCC staffers without the higher-ups’ approval. Typically, vulnerable members will swoop up any financial boost they can find, but this time the donations came unsolicited and with no warning.
Staff at the DCCC reportedly did not foresee the double-edged sword of tying the controversial congresswoman to the party’s most vulnerable members in the House.
DCCC spokesman Chris Hayden did not talk about the specifics of the payments with POLITICO, but called the money transfers a “miscommunication.”
“We appreciate Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s ongoing commitment to a Democratic majority,” said Hayden. “Due to a miscommunication, some transfers were made in error, but that has been addressed.”
After the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers, the riots began. And though those riots remained about George Floyd in principle in spirit they quickly turned into Marxist events that Marxist groups like Black Lives Matter and anarchist groups like ANTIFA took full advantage of for their causes. The Democrats took advantage of it for their own causes as well. Remember, never let a good crisis go to waste. Throughout the summer of 2020, Democrat governors and especially mayors turned a blind eye to the riots that were ravaging many of their cities. Many of them pushed to defund the police and in some insane decisions to abolish the entire police department and replace it with ridiculous notions like public social workers. They did this mostly out of fear of the Woke Supremacy mob that was ravaging their cities. They didn’t want to get lumped in with police or even with what became known as the systemic white power structure of America. So they bowed down to the demands of the violent mobs, and some cities actually started voting to defund their police departments.
So, progressive politicians followed through with defunding police either in whole or in part. We saw the ramifications of such actions taken by Democrats who cared more about appeasing the mob than protecting the very constituents they were charged with protecting. For example, in New York City they got rid of the NYPD’s Anti-Crime Unit. That blunder by Mayor Bill de Blasio caused a 205 percent spike in crime in the Big Apple.
Besides New York City and Minneapolis and others, Los Angeles was hit by the cowardice of Democrat leadership that also caved to the violent mobs, and the result was also devastating.
In January and February 2021, Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers have responded to 88 percent more reports of shots being fired than at the same time period in 2020. Gunshot victims in LA are up 141 percent versus last year, and homicides are up 39 percent, according to a nonprofit newsgroup called Crosstown, a part of the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism. There were 15 hate crimes reported in Los Angeles in 2020, up from seven reported in 2019 an over 100 percent increase, according to the Los Angeles Police Commission.
As is the case in many other Democrat-controlled havens that made the same stupid mistakes to get a handle on the wave of violent crime, on Thursday, the officials in Los Angeles voted to increase police funding. LA’s public transportation agency voted to increase police funding by $36 million. That additional funding will make its way to the LAPD, the Long Beach Police Department, and the Los Angeles Sherriff’s Department. This isn’t the best they could do though, as law enforcement agencies originally asked for $111 million in more funding, and we have to believe that the law enforcement officials know more than the city officials what is needed for their people to do the job that needs to be done. It must burn their bagels to have the problems associated with rising crime rates caused by the very same people who are now shortchanging them the money needed to get the job done.
The vote for the extra funding was 12-0, and that included a “yea” vote from the Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti says the New York Post.
Just nine months ago in June, Garcetti bragged about being committed to not increasing the police budget. I guess the inevitable hadn’t yet hit him square in the face yet of the damage his actions along with the other idiots in charge did to the innocent citizens of Los Angeles.
“We will not be increasing our police budget,” the Democratic mayor proclaimed, adding that the city would be “reinvesting in black communities and communities of color.”
What about white communities? How can Garcetti get away with saying something so racist? All you ever need to do to figure out if something you said was racist is to flip it around. Had Garcetti or any other mayor for that matter said we are “reinvesting in white communities,” can you imagine the uproar that would ensue? And rightfully so. So then why are Democrats allowed to get away with making racist statements like they’re going to reinvest in black and people of color communities?
Democrats now feel that if they pander to black and people of color communities, they will be forgiven for anything they’ve done.
Forgiveness can only happen when the people liable for a tragedy take responsibility. So far I haven’t heard of a single Democrat politician who has owned up to making a serious error in judgment when they took actions that caused crime to skyrocket in their communities.
And how come no one is pointing out that the LA City Council voted in July to cut $150 million from the LAPD budget and yet recently only voted for $36 million in additional funding needed for law enforcement?
And when are these politicians going to apologize to law enforcement, the overwhelming majority of which do their jobs professionally? Defunding them for things that they didn’t do was a complete slap in the face of law enforcement and the rule of law. When are they going to apologize to the victims of crime caused by their reckless decisions to defund the police who are there to protect them? Don’t hold your breath. They are Democrats, and Democrats never admit to any wrongdoing.
According to the Democrats, anyone who uses the filibuster is a racist, If that is true then Democrats in the Senate. Last year alone the Democrats used the filibuster over 300 times. The KKK did not block anything. That must mean that the Democrats are much worse than KKK. I’m just kidding.
The reason that Democrats used the filibuster over 300 times is their ideology, not their racism.
Now, the Democrats want to kill the filibuster so that they will have a dictatorship in order to control the masses. The Democrats claim that slave owners were the people responsible for the filibuster.
But, that s a lie.
The filibuster was put in place in 1806, 55 years before the civil war. Slavery was the law of the land them. There was no need to put the filibuster in place due to slavery.
The filibuster is the only thing standing in the way for the Democrats to have total control of the government. That should scare you and it is a dangerous thing for them. What happens when the Republicans take control with no filibuster? They could make crossing our border a felony and anyone who aids them could be tried for aiding and abetting the illegal aliens. They could cut all funding for Planned Parenthood and other budget items.
Democrats used filibuster 327 times, compared to only once by GOP in 2020: Report
President Joe Biden has been increasingly critical of the Senate filibuster, calling it a Jim Crow relic and saying it has been widely abused despite Democrats using it over 300 times in 2020, compared to once by Republicans.
“After @POTUS @JoeBiden denounced the rampant abuse of the filibuster last year, we did some digging,” Fox News anchor John Roberts tweeted Friday. “Republicans used it once. Democrats used it 327 times.”
The concept of the filibuster is easy to understand. Before a bill can be voted for there is a vote and in o0rder to do that they must get sixty votes in the Senate. If the vote gets at least sixty votes then an actual vote on the bill needs just 51 votes to pass. The vote to kill the filibuster cannot be filibuster and would require all 50 Democrats to pass. There are two Democratic Senators who are currently opposed to ending the filibuster. They are Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema.
Shortly after advertising that she would have a special Facebook Live event for her followers, Dr. Carol Swain received a notification from Facebook that she was suspended from certain functions, including streaming live, for 30 days.
“I had just made the announcement that I would be speaking live on my page the next day, which would have been Friday, and that I would be taking questions. I have been talking about Critical Race Theory. Then I got the notice I couldn’t go life, and I tried to contest it by filling out a problem report, and I have nothing from them,” Carol Swain said. “I feel like what they are doing with these tactics of Critical Race Theory and segregation in the schools is a rejection of the Civil Rights Act. It seems like they are rejecting integration,” Swain told me.
ARE DEMOCRATS TRYING TO NULIFLY THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT? Could Swain’s point of view be the real conflict? Or is her public rebuke really about a photo from a year ago? Swain sent a screenshot of the “offending post,” which she told me comes from Feb. of 2019. Democrats talk about the KKK and have many memes about the KKK, so that must be safe. And talking about political opponents is done all of the time, so that must be acceptable. Consider what offended Facebook:
From the screen, grab is seen a photo of people in White KKK Hoods. What would the offense be by Swain that would cause her to have her Facebook Live function disabled and be canceled like that? That Democrats were acting like the KKK? The ones who sought to eradicate Black Americans from speaking in society? Or something else?
While Swain has been an outspoken and notable Conservative Republican, Swain’s public profile has been sharply elevated since President Donald J. Trump appointed her to lead, as Co-Chair, his signature 1776 Commission for education.
Although Trump has left office, and Democrat President Joe Biden immediately stopped the commission, Swain has continued with his charge to her to lean and focus on improving public education.
Swain has done numerous high-profile interviews in the two months since Trump left DC, perhaps gaining greater notoriety than ever before. As topics that she often talks about, like Critical Race Theory and segregation in the classroom, comes into intense national focus.
“It is unfortunate that this is happening to me just as I was able to reach out to new people. I have contested Facebook’s findings and let them know I am tired of the harassment,” Swain said about the suspension.
Notable is that Swain is a Black American woman who is posting about her educated beliefs. She is doing nothing more that isn’t done hourly by the Democrats who insist that Republicans are members of the KKK or are Nazis.
However, Swain is punished for a photo that is over one year old. Do you think it is a coincidence that she is being removed from the public stream of Facebook as she is gaining more attention for segregation in the classroom and that it is being done in the name of not drawing parallels between the Democrats and the KKK?
Carol Swain is a notable expert on education, an author, a former professor and the founder of BeThePeopleNews.com, and a request guest on numerous conservative talk shows.
