Published

on

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.

Townhall reported,

“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.

Florida Dem Candidates For Congress Shalala & Mucarsel-Powell Won’t Return Money From Castro Supporting Rep

Published

on

...

* By

In what could be a gift for Republicans, two Democrat candidates for U.S. House, Donna Shalala and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, announced they won’t return campaign contributions from Dem Rep Barbara Lee (CA) who praised Fidel Castro.

The two Dems are in tight races and that was probably a huge mistake as they are both in Florida and many Cuban-Americans absolutely hate Castro, for good reason. Voters came out & voiced their opposition to the candidates, Castro, socialism, and Pelosi who appeared with them for a fundraiser.

Get out & vote Republican if you’re in their districts! Vote for Republicans Carlos Curbelo, and Maria Elvira Salazar! They could decide who’s in control of the House, Dems or Reps!

The Miami Herald reported:

“Barbara Lee never came to Miami.

But the mere mention of the California lawmaker’s name on the programming flier for a campaign event in Coral Gables was enough to trigger a protest, a call for South Florida Democratic candidates to divest from her campaign contributions and an attack ad from a Super PAC aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The congresswoman, who turned heads in 2016 by praising former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro after his death, was listed as an expected guest at a “Get Out the Vote” event on press releases issued by the campaigns of Democrat Donna Shalala and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell.

Despite the protest flare-up outside the event Wednesday — a crowd of mostly Cuban-American demonstrators yelled and waved anti-communism signs — Shalala and Mucarsel-Powell said Thursday that they will not return the $5,500 Lee donated to their campaigns ahead of the November election.

Lee, whose name was scrubbed from the event without explanation, donated $2,000 to the campaign of Shalala, who is running in Florida’s 27th Congressional District against Republican Maria Elvira Salazar.

Lee also donated $3,500 to Mucarsel-Powell, who is running in Florida’s 26th Congressional District against incumbent Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo.

In a statement to the Herald, Salazar campaign spokesman Jose Luis Castillo hammered Shalala for agreeing to appear alongside Lee and declining to return Lee’s donations.

“[Her] total disconnect and lack of empathy with this community is appalling,” he said. “Barbara Lee’s longtime admiration for Fidel Castro is deeply offensive to the Cuban community, as well as all freedom-loving people everywhere.”

After Castro’s death in 2016, Lee told the San Jose Mercury News that “we need to stop and pause and mourn his loss” and that she was “very sad for the Cuban people.”

“He led a revolution in Cuba that led social improvements for his people,” Lee said then, adding that during her eight meetings with Castro over the years, she found him to be a “smart man” and a “historian” who “wanted normal relations with the United States, but not at the expense of the accomplishments of the revolution.”

The candidates said they disagreed with Lee’s sentiments toward Castro and argued that the views of their donors are not necessarily representative of their own views, although demands that candidates return money from unsavory or controversial figures have already been an issue in the race for District 26.”

AZ Dem Senate Candidate Kyrsten ‘Taliban’ Sinema: Stay-At-Home Moms ‘Leech Off Their Husbands’

Published

We thought her statement about not caring if Americans join the Taliban to fight would do her in, but if it doesn’t, this should!

Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema once said that stay-at-home moms are leeches, and aren’t real feminists.

I’d say goodbye to a lot of women voters, Sinema!

The Daily Wire is reporting:

Arizona Democratic senatorial candidate Kyrsten Sinema not only thought it was okay for Americans to join the Taliban, disparaged the citizens of her home state as racists, and accused former President George W. Bush of “Crowning himself King of the World for Life” and putting arsenic in the country’s water, she has made plain her contempt for stay-at-home moms.

In a 2006 interview with the Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944, Sinema went off the rails when describing stay-at-home moms, blustering, “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?”

Sinema was married to a BYU classmate before later divorcing him. She has no children, and is a vehement abortion rights supporter. She co-sponsored the Women’s Health Protection Act. As Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, told the Senate Judiciary Committee:

“We find the formal title or marketing label, “Women’s Health Protection Act,” to be highly misleading. The bill is really about just one thing: stripping away from elected lawmakers the ability to provide even the most minimal protections for unborn children, at any stage of their development. The proposal is so sweeping and extreme that it would be difficult to capture its full scope in any short title. Calling it the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” would be more in line with truth-in-advertising standards.

The bill would subject any law or government policy that affects the practice of abortion, even indirectly, to an array of sweeping legal tests, designed to guarantee that almost none will survive. The general rule would be that any law that specifically regulates abortion would be presumptively invalid. The same would be true of any law that is not abortion-specific but has the effect or claimed effect of reducing access to abortion. It is apparent that those who crafted this bill believe that, where abortion is involved, immediate access to abortion, at any stage of pregnancy, is the only thing that matters.”

In her little-known 2009 book, “Unite and Conquer: How to Build Coalitions That Win — And Last,” Sinema wrote, “I don’t mean that we should all of a sudden abandon our principles and adopt moral relativism. I just mean that we should consider the idea that perhaps people with views different from our own come about those ideas honestly and that those ideas aren’t inherently evil.”

Just as long as those ideas aren’t about moms raising their children the way they have for centuries, apparently.”
