Protesting has been taking place all across the nation recently. From protests regarding the minimum wage to protesting regarding the Supreme Court Justice of the United States nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Now, the protests are taking a serious turn. In one particular protest regarding the increasing of the minimum wage, a Democratic House candidate was arrested. A movement that could jeopardize her political career.
“The Latest on protests by fast-food workers demanding a $15 per hour minimum wage (all times local): A U.S. House candidate is among 18 people arrested for disorderly conduct during a protest in Detroit for a higher minimum wage and the right to form unions.
Democrat Rashida Tlaib was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon for blocking a traffic lane. She faces candidates from the Green and Working Class parties for the 13th District House seat.
The protest was organized by Fight for $15, a national movement seeking to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour for fast food, child care, airlines and other workers. The group also wants the right to start unions or join existing ones. Several hundred people marched before protesting in front of a Midtown McDonalds.
Deputy Police Chief Elvin Barren said those arrested would be ticketed and released later Tuesday.
A union official says some of the people struck by a pickup truck during a protest to demand a $15 per hour minimum wage in Michigan are being released from a hospital.
Police say eight people were hospitalized Tuesday morning after the pickup collided with the protesters in Flint.
Service Employees International Union President Mary Kay Henry told The Associated Press that three of those injured remain under observation in the hospital. Their injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Police don’t believe the driver intended to hit the protesters.
Fast-food workers in Detroit are planning to walk off the job and join a demonstration Tuesday afternoon. Walkouts also are expected Wednesday in Milwaukee and Thursday in Chicago.
Police say a pickup truck collided with a group of protesters calling for the right to form unions in Flint, Michigan, injuring several people.
Police Chief Tim Johnson says he doesn’t believe the crash Tuesday morning near a near a fast-food restaurant was intentional and that the driver “seemed pretty shaken up.” Johnson initially said four or five people had non-life-threatening injuries, but later said eight were hospitalized. The pickup was later hit by a utility truck.
Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen Whitmer was among those participating in the protest. She wasn’t injured and a post on her Twitter account says she’s “incredibly sad that so many people were hurt.”
The Flint Journal reports that Johnson says those who were struck were at the end of a group of protesters walking along a street. He says the driver “acted like he didn’t see them.”
Michigan candidates for governor and the U.S. House are expected to join fast-food workers and others walking off the job in protest over the right to form unions.
The protests are part of an effort to elect pro-union candidates in the November general election. Walkouts also are expected Wednesday in Milwaukee and Thursday in Chicago.
Workers are seeking union rights for fast-food restaurants, airports, downtown businesses, hospitals, in-home care and child care.
Democrat Gretchen Whitmer will join striking cooks and cashiers Tuesday morning in Flint. Whitmer and Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, a Republican, are battling for governor.
Democrat Rashida Tlaib will join fast-food workers Tuesday afternoon in Detroit. Tlaib faces candidates from the Green and Working Class parties for the 13th House seat.”
Tlaib is an attorney who is a former member of the Michigan House of Representatives. She was term-limited out, and finished her representation of the 6th District which is near Southwest Detroit. When she initially took office in 2009, she was the first Muslim-American woman who served in Michigan’s Legislature.
Furthermore, she was the second Muslim-American women to be elected to the u.S. State Legislature in the history of the United States. Just a few years later she won the nomination for the Democratic party for the U.S. House of Representatives for the 13th Congressional District of Michigan.
For the general election, she is running unopposed and as such, she is expected to become the first Muslim-American woman in the U.S. Congress. Additionally, she is expected to be the first Palestinian-American woman in Congress. As to be expected, she is an open member of the Democratic Socialists of America.
Her political stances are not all that surprising considering her political affiliation. She supports Medicare for All and a minimum wage of $15 an hour. In regards to immigration, she supports abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency as well as allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the United States.
Because of her ethnic ties to the Middle East, she opposed any military or financial aid to Israel and supports a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. Moreover, she believes that Palestinians have the right to return and advocates for activists of the boycott.
However, she later went back on her initial stance and said she supports a two-state solution and actually does advocate for aid to the Palestinian Authority and Israel. She said she is particularly supportive of funding projects that foster peace between the two states.
Here’s video of her arrest.

President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall
When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.
Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”
Do you think Facebook should be regulated so they're forced to treat everyone the same, regardless of their political beliefs, considering their size and influence in society?

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.
SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED
I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.
Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.
Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

The government didn’t spend or receive money from NAFTA. So unless you’re going to raise taxes, there is no money coming into the government from the new deal.

Good, now you can stop bothering Chuck and Nancy about getting our money for it.
— S.Danielle (@sdanielle) December 13, 2018
I am losing faith in you, sir. Why are you asking us taxpayers for 5 billion dollars if the new deal will pay for the wall? You promised that we wouldn’t have to pay for it! Please keep your promise, a free border wall, or I will not vote for you again. #NoWallNoVote pic.twitter.com/eDopbpl7T1

Also the deal still has to be ratified and approved by Congress which probably won't happen until the end of 2019 Or possibly mid 2020. So you're making promises using money you don't have and may possibly not get. What a shocker Mr. Bankruptcy
— Alan Volante (@VolanteAlan) December 13, 2018
Well wait until that money is coming in and build it then
— Caren Sykes (@misscsykes12) December 13, 2018
I've decided I'm not buying a Maga hat from you, but instead spend the money on drugs. So, now you pay for my drugs.
— Vincent Carmiggelt (@graphincent) December 13, 2018
Great so you don't need a penny from Congress or US Taxpayers then. Let us know when Mexico sends you the check for the $5 billion you want for the first payment on the wall. Until then don't bother Americans for the $.
— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) December 13, 2018
No, this means consumers will pay for the wall.
— Carolyn McClanahan (@CarolynMcC) December 13, 2018
If you buy something that normally costs $1000 on sale for $750, you didn't save $250. You spent $750.

Jeez… I saw that one coming.

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.
Three Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers Will Testify This Coming Week, “Explosive” Allegations to Come…
“With regard to the investigation, which doesn’t get a lot of attention, into the Clinton foundation, the DOJ designated John Huber to look into this. They have 6,000 pages of evidence that they’ve gone through. The foundation raised $2.5 billion, and they’re looking into potential improprieties. What’s next on this investigation?” the Fox News host questioned Congressman Meadows.
“Well, I think for the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this,” Meadows answered.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Some of the allegations they make are quite explosive, Martha and as we just look at the contributions — now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year, but if you look at it, you know, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as Secretary of State — then it dipped down when she was no longer there and then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there’s all kinds of allegations of you know, pay-to-play and that kind of thing, “Meadows said.
Take a look:
In the three years following Hillary Clinton’s departure from her position in the State Department, the Clinton Foundation donations dropped by 90%.
The Gateway Pundit writes, “Hillary Clinton left the State Department in 2013 and it looks like nobody wants to pay since she can no longer play.”
Currently, the Clinton Foundation is being put under investigation by the Justice Department and the FBI for a whole plethora of reasons.
The Hill reports that the Clinton Foundation is also being investigated by the IRS in order to find out whether or not any “tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use.”
Numerous Clinton emails backing up the idea that the Clinton Foundation was involved in “pay-to-play” schemes during Clinton’s time serving as the head of the Department of State have been found by Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
