Gov Abbott To Continue Building The Wall In Texas Despite Biden

Published

on

Back in January 2017, president Donald Trump signed an executive order that initiated the construction of a border wall in the southern part of the United States. When Joe Biden came into power this year, the project was put into a complete halt.

Republican governor Greg Abbott, recently announced that Texas will continue what Trump has started and will build a wall between the state’s boundary and Mexico. 

In a conference with officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Division of Emergency Management and the National Guard, Abbott laid the plan to restart the border wall construction.

“It will help all of us to work on ways to stem the flow of unlawful immigration and to stem the flow of illegal contraband,” Abbott said.

“They don’t want to come across the state of Texas anymore because it’s not what they were expecting. It’s not the red carpet that the federal administration rolled out to them,” Abbott added.

2021 has seen a torrent of illegal immigrants trying to breach American territory, setting an unprecedented record which can be attributed to the Biden administration’s seemingly relaxed stance and policies on immigration. The uncontrollable influx has allowed smuggling of illegal aliens into the United States, eventually also bringing in dangerous criminals and gangs from Mexico and Central America.

“The border crisis is no laughing matter. This is something that also is not a tourism site for members of Congress to make an annual pilgrimage to and see the border, and then go back and do absolutely nothing at the federal government level to solve the crisis,” Abbott continued.

Recently, the governor launched what he calls ‘Operation Lonestar’ which aims to secure the border by deploying more forces to guard the area. Last month, as a part of its kick off, around 1,000 Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and National Guard were stationed at the border to provide stronger security.

Back in March, Abbott lambasted the Biden administration for its complacency in handling the situation at the border.

“President Biden’s reckless open border policies have created a humanitarian crisis that is enriching the cartels, smugglers, and human traffickers who often prey on and abuse unaccompanied minors,” Abbott said.

“Americans deserve to know what the Biden Administration is doing to investigate the surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the border and to protect those who are victims of human trafficking. That is why we are expanding Operation Lone Star to include anti-human trafficking efforts, such as interviewing unaccompanied minors to learn if they are victims of human trafficking. This will help us gain information to keep these children safe, root out human trafficking or other criminal activity, and prevent more children from being trafficked and abused. Whether it’s securing the border or fighting human trafficking, the state of Texas will always step up to fill the gaps left by Washington,” Abbott elaborated.

Hunter Biden Seen Partying On Tropical Beaches After Art Sale Payday

Published

on

Selling elementary school-level paintings for six figures certainly does afford Hunter Biden the opportunity to live like a movie star. The 51-year-old son of the President was spotted last week surfing in Malibu with former professional surfer Strider Wasilewski.

The UK Daily Mail published the exclusive video footage of Hunter surfing. Watch it HERE.

Hunter is living in Malibu now. He’s renting a $20,000 a month oceanfront home where he lives with his South African wife Melissa Cohen and their son, one-year-old Beau.

Several months ago, Hunter dumped the $5.4 million Venice Beach mansion he had been renting in favor of the elite beaches of Malibu in order to give his family more privacy.

It’s good to be a Biden.

Last month, the White House attempted to downplay the ethics concerns over the President’s troubled son’s art “profession,” claiming that all buyers of his so-called “art” would remain anonymous to both Hunter and the White House.

But in reality, there is no way for the White House to enforce such a claim.

Reporters repeatedly pressed White House press secretary Jen Psaki about the feasibility of guaranteeing that Hunter would not know who was buying his paintings. And rather than address their concerns directly, Psaki simply repeated that the buyers would remain anonymous.

When asked about Hunter’s meeting with people at the gallery showing and what would prevent a potential buyer from telling Hunter that he was a buyer, Psaki deflected.

To believe that Hunter will follow these guidelines is deeply naïve. Hunter Biden isn’t exactly a trustworthy person. He has a history of drug abuse, and he has a long history of exploiting his father’s position for personal financial gain by selling access to his father.

The fact is, not one thing in the White House’s plan would stop a potential buyer from contacting Surf City Biden and telling him “Hey, I was the one who bought that piece of garbage for half a million dollars. Any chance I can get you to set up a meeting with your father?”

Last week during a podcast interview, Hunter was asked to respond to critics who say his art sales present a potential ethics problem.

His response? “F*ck them.”

What a prince.

More NY Prosecutors Seek Evidence Against Cuomo

Published

on

Prosecutors from at least five New York counties are now seeking evidence from the report accusing Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.

District attorneys from Manhattan, Westchester, Nassau and Albany counties want to see the evidence collected in the investigation for the report, according to CNBC. In addition, the Oswego County District Attorney also wants documents and information relating to one of the alleged incidents, WSYR-TV said.

The investigation into Cuomo found that he sexually harassed multiple current and former state government employees, state Attorney General Letitia James had announced Tuesday.

The investigation was conducted by two outside lawyers. The Associated Press said the probe also found that the Cuomo administration was a “hostile work environment” and that it was “rife with fear and intimidation.”

CNBC reported that a spokesperson for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said: “When our office learned that the Attorney General’s investigation of the governor’s conduct was complete, our office contacted the Attorney General’s Office to begin requesting investigative materials in their possession pertaining to incidents that occurred in Manhattan.”

And Westchester County District Attorney Mimi Rocah said she intends to launch an inquiry into whether the alleged sexual misconduct by Cuomo that occurred in her jurisdiction was “criminal in nature.”

Nassau County District Attorney Joyce Smith said in a statement: “We are reviewing the deeply disturbing findings of the Attorney General’s report regarding the Governor’s alleged conduct. We have requested the Attorney General’s records related to any incidents that occurred in Nassau County and will thoroughly and expeditiously investigate any potential crimes.

Albany County District Attorney David Soares has already announced he is launching a criminal probe of Cuomo in light of the findings.

Oswego District Attorney Greg Oakes told WSYR he wants to review all pertinent materials relating to Virginia Limmiatis, who is listed as one of the 11 women with a complaint against Cuomo in the investigation by James’ office.

“I will be requesting all documents and information relating to the alleged incident from the NYS Attorney General’s Office to determine what, if any, action can be taken,” Oakes said. “I want to make sure that I have all relevant information prior to making any decision, which includes speaking with Ms. Limmiatis, if she is willing.”

Cuomo has denied the results of the investigation. He claimed the “facts in the cases are “much different than what has been portrayed.”

“I want you to know directly from me that I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances,” he said. “I am 63 years old. I’ve lived my entire adult life in public view. That is just not who I am, and that’s not who I have ever been.”

Rnc Spokesperson Paris Dennard Talks About Gop Diversity And Support For The Black Community

Published

on

Recently, former Toledo mayor Donna M. Owens got the chance to speak to Paris Dennard, a fellow GOP and the current Republican National Committee (RNC) National Spokesperson and Director of Black Media Affairs. 

In an exclusive interview on Essence, a black women’s lifestyle website, Dennard talked about the changing landscape within the Grand Old Party. The popular belief that cultural and racial diversity is only a priority of the Democratic Party isn’t true at all. In fact, the Republicans have made strides in promoting inclusiveness to achieve ultimate balance and harmony in American politics.

“The Republican Party is even more diverse in 2021 thanks to the intentional efforts to expand the reach of our party in diverse communities. In the last election, Republicans flipped 15 Congressional seats from Democrat to Republican. In each of those seats that flipped to the GOP, the elected winner was either a woman or minority,”  Dennard stated.

“We added two Black Republicans to Congress, Representatives Byron Donalds (R-FL) and Burgess Owens (R-UT). And we continue to have Black women vie for the GOP nomination for a host of races ahead of the 2022 midterm election. This year, Winsome Sears made history by becoming the first Black Republican woman nominee for Lt. Governor in Virginia. In 2019, Roxy Ndebumadu was elected to the City Council in Bowie, Maryland,” Dennard added.

Dennard, a proud black man himself, has served as the chairman of the Arizona Teenage Republicans during his highschool days. Since his youth, GOP blood has been running deeply into his veins. Regardless of his color and cultural identity, he feels at home with an organization that he shares his beliefs and ideologies with.

“Members of the Republican Party come from all walks of life. We are a pro-life party. The GOP supports issues that Black Americans care about like school choice in education, investing in HBCUs (with former President Donald Trump providing permanent HBCU funding for the first time);” Dennard said.

When asked by Owens about voting rights, which has been one of the pressing issues for Black Americans, Dennard cited the struggles of his predecessors, when they fought hard for the freedom to choose.

“My family comes from Cordele, Georgia so I understand the sacrifices made by my ancestors to help secure Black Americans and women the right to vote. Too many people that look like me literally fought, bled, sacrificed, and died for my right to vote as a Republican because we are free to have our own opinions, free to have our own thoughts and free to vote for any political party,” Dennard elaborated.

“We know there are millions of Black voters who are willing to give the Republican Party a first or second look and want to vote for us. When they do, it should be safe and secure and their actual vote,” Dennard added.
