President Trump was in North Carolina Monday for a rally to support 9th Congressional District candidate Dan Bishop in today’s special election against Democrat Dan McCready.
The political parties and the media are placing a yuuuge amount of importance on this race as an indicator of the possible 2020 election results, which is silly. One district, with its own unique demographics, holding a one-time election a year before the general election carries no predictive power whatsoever. But the economy is going great and there are no major wars and the Mueller report is as deflated as a Macy’s balloon the day after the parade, so the chattering class has to have something to talk about as a harbinger of the end of Trump’s reign of terror at last.

News from the “Sanctuary City” party

In Baltimore County, Maryland, six of seven people charged in the brutal stabbing death of a 21-year-old man have been identified as members of the vicious MS-13 gang. That’s the gang President Trump was referring to when he called its members “animals,” and Democrats have falsely claimed ever since that he was referring to all Mexicans. It’s believed that they stabbed the victim to death because he made a hand gesture that appeared to be associated with another gang.
This comes just about six months after five MS-13 gang members were arrested, also in Maryland, for allegedly stabbing a 16-year-old fellow member 100 times and dumping his body in Virginia, where they set it on fire.
But for Heaven’s sakes, don’t call them animals, or you’ll be blasted as a xenophobe by people like the authorities in Montgomery County, Maryland. It’s the “sanctuary county” where seven illegal immigrants have been arrested just since July 25th on charges of rape and sexual assault, including a previously-deported illegal alien who allegedly sexually assaulted his own stepdaughter.
So who is to blame for protecting these violent criminals from federal authorities and turning them loose to prey on American citizens, or as county authorities phrase it, promoting “understanding, tolerance, and respect” and “social justice for all”? If you guessed that means that the real villains are President Trump, conservative news outlets that dared to report the story and some vaguely-defined group of “neo-Nazi sympathizers,” then congratulations. You speak perfect leftist gibberish circa 2019.
But on the good news front, despite the Democrats’ best efforts, illegal border crossings fell by nearly half in August, after President Trump signed a deal with Mexico to interdict migrant “caravans” before they get to the US border. For those who do make it across the border, here’s a helpful hint: Maryland is to the north and east.

There is simply no end to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s fields of expertise. Having lectured us on everything from economics to immigration to guns (she even knows Dan Crenshaw's friends and relatives better than he does), she’s now morphed into a meteorologist. Tweeting out video of the devastation in the Bahamas, she wrote, “This is what climate change looks like: it hits vulnerable communities first. I can already hear climate deniers screeching: ‘It’s always been like this! You’re dim,’ etc. No. This is about science & leadership. We either decarbonize & cut emissions, or we don’t & let people die.”
Again, I don’t know what a “climate denier” is, since I’ve never met anyone who denies that there’s a climate, or even that it changes. But yes, in fact it has always been like this in places like the Bahamas, which rest in an area that has long been called “Hurricane Alley” because that’s where hurricanes form.
At this link, actual climate expert Bjorn Lomborg unpacks some of the nonsense, including the fact that only three major hurricanes stronger than a Category 3 have hit the continental US in the last 13 years. That’s the lowest rate since 1900 and well below the average of eight during the same time frame, despite the increased CO2 emissions.
This is not what climate change looks like. It’s what a hurricane looks like when, by pure bad luck, it happens to cross over a populated island with poorly-constructed infrastructure. And her tweet is what it looks like when politicians attempt to use misinformation to exploit a tragedy and promote their political agendas.
