Crenshaw Rips Sanders With ‘Actual Solutions’ After He Slammed Overcrowded Border Facilities As ‘Inhumane’

Rep. Dan Crenshaw is telling Sen. Bernie Sanders not to “virtue signal” and start supporting “actual solutions,” as the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate called the overcrowding situation at the southern border “inhumane.”

In a report released on Thursday, the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General warned about the situation at detention facilities, as they are dangerously overcrowded at the El Paso sector of the border with Mexico.

As the report said, about 750 people and 900 people on May 7 and 8, respectively, were found crammed into a facility that’s supposed to hold a maximum of 125 people during an unannounced visit.

“We observed dangerous overcrowding at the facility with single adults held in cells designed for one-fifth as many detainees,” the report reads.

“Dangerous overcrowdings” like these also included 76 detainees in a cell that has a maximum capacity of 12, 41 detainees in a cell with a maximum capacity of eight, and 155 detainees placed in a cell with a maximum capacity of 35.

“We are concerned that overcrowding and prolonged detention represent an immediate risk to the health and safety not just of the detainees, but also DHS agents and officers. […] Border Patrol management on site said there is an ongoing concern that rising tensions among detainees could turn violent. […] Dangerous overcrowding among single adults in PDT requires immediate action.” The report reads.

The Vermont senator slammed the situation as “inhumane,” tweeting that “it must stop NOW.”

“We must end the dehumanization of immigrants and develop a humane policy for those at the border who seek asylum,” Bernie Sanders added.

Dan Crenshaw, a vocal member of Congress on the southern border crisis, responded to Berine Sanders as he listed out things the senator could do to make a difference.

“Maybe you won’t support actual solutions because you prefer to virtue signal about the crisis?” Dan Crenshaw concluded. While Bernie Sanders is claiming he wants a fix to the asylum process, as Dan Crenshaw pointed out, Sen. Lindsey Graham proposed a plan to fix U.S. asylum laws.

Sanders Trashes Billionaire Who Gave Money To Students – Claims That’s The Government’s Problem

Bernie Sanders’s favorite pastime is calling out evil billionaires for their evil doings. Bernie Sanders found the perfect opportunity to do this once again as billionaire Robert F. Smith announced he would be paying off the student debt of those who graduated from Morehouse College.

Sanders pointed out the egregious waste of money as a perfect example that charity can’t solve our problems

“A very kind gentleman, a billionaire, forgave the debts of students at Morehouse. What he did was very generous, but the truth is that private charity alone is not going to solve a problem in which some 40 million Americans are struggling with right now.” Bernie Sanders said at a rally Monday.

There’s no act of private generosity that would not lead Sanders to use it to also trash the government. This time he event criticized Robert F. Smith, a generous black man that just wanted to help his struggling community.

It’s fair to mention that at a time when black colleges are struggling and many students are being hit by the debt crisis, Robert F. Smith’s donation is a big deal.

“This lifts a huge weight off my family’s back,” Deionte Jones, a 22-year-old 2019 Morehouse graduate with $25,000 in debt, told the Washington Post.

Smith is a black man with a net worth of $5 billion. He pledged to pay off the debts of hundreds of young black college graduates carries and send a powerful message about the trans-formative power of wealth and how that it be used can create opportunities particularly for black students — who are more likely than other groups to face high levels of student debt.

Maybe Bernie should pitch in and donate one of his houses to help the students pay of their debts.

The Vice President Got News For Bernie About Boston Marathon Bomber Voting From Prison: ‘Not On Our Watch’

On Friday, Vice President Mike Pence responded to Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ recent remarks that prisoners should be able to vote during his address to the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) annual convention.

The vice president delivered the comments before President Donald Trump’s keynote address for the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) Leadership Forum. This is the third year both he and the President have spoken at the group’s annual meeting.

Mike Pence brought up Bernie Sanders’ remarks during last Thursday’s CNN Town Hall that he would allow incarcerated felons like the Boston Marathon Bomber to vote. “The same people who want to restrict the right to keep and bear arms of law-abiding citizens believe the Boston Marathon Bomber should be given the right to vote on Death Row,” Pence said, while the crowd cheered.

“I got news for you Bernie. Not on our watch.” said the Vice President.

He went on and said that “Violent convicted felons, murderers and terrorists should never given the right to vote in prison. Not now, not ever.”

Later in his speech, Vice President Pence addressed democrats touting the positive qualities of socialism: “It was freedom, not socialism, that gave us the most prosperous economy in the history of the world. It was freedom not socialism, that ended slavery, won two world wars and stands today as a beacon of hope for all the world.”

Vice President Mike Pence, along with his wife Second Lady Karen Pence, arrived first in Air Force Two around 10 a.m. for the speech.

He was greeted on the tarmac by Indiana’s Republican leadership delegation including his brother Rep. Greg Pence, Gov. Eric Holcomb, Sens. Todd Young and Mike Braun, and Reps. Jackie Walorski, Jim Banks, and Jim Baird.

The speeches were held in Lucas Oil Stadium, which holds 10,000. The convention is being held at the Indiana Convention Center on April 26-28.

Steve Scalise Rains Hell On Sanders: He Would Let ‘Terrorists’ Vote While ‘Stripping Away’ Rights Of ‘Law-Abiding Citizens’

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise tore into 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders for wanting to give “full voting rights to terrorists in prison” while allegedly “stripping away” rights of law-abiding American citizens.

Scalise appeared on “Fox News” this Wednesday and pointed out that “it’s almost unbelievable when you look at how far to the left they have gone, where socialism literally is beating out liberalism in terms of their ideology.”

In regard to Bernie Sanders advocating for criminals like the Boston Marathon bomber, who killed three people and injured many others in the attack and is now facing the death penalty, to have the right to vote while in prison, the Republican lawmaker called it as he saw it.

He said that while Bernie Sanders wants to allow prisoners to vote, Democrats are going to start “stripping away” rights of “law-abiding citizens,” particularly gun rights.

“They’re going to take away your First Amendment rights, your Second Amendment rights,” Scalise said. “They’ve got this plan on health care where they want to take away your ability to buy your own private insurance from your company.”

“It’s all about control versus freedom.” Scalise added.

On the health care plan put out by the Dems, Bernie Sanders reintroduced his “Medicare for All” bill on April 10. A health care expert recently told Fox News that “we would need to double the taxes just to even attempt to pay for this program.”

During Monday’s CNN town hall, Bernie Sanders claimed that “terrible people” like the Boston Marathon bomber should have be allowed to vote while in prison.

In contrast to Sanders, another 2020 Democratic hopeful, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, made it clear when asked at the town hall if he supported prisoners voting behind bars, responding, “No.”

Lindsey Graham Dares Sanders To Explain Why Charleston Shooter Should Be Granted The Right To Vote

Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham took aim on Tuesday at Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, suggesting that South Carolinians would not be pleased at the thought of prisoners being allowed to vote.

The former Republican presidential candidate claimed that it might be difficult to explain to the people of South Carolina, still raw from the racially-motivated church shooting perpetrated by Dylann Roof on June 17, 2015, why Bernie Sanders would allow a convicted murderer and self-proclaimed white supremacist to cast his vote.

“Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse….@BernieSanders supports allowing rapists, murderers, and terrorists – like the Boston bomber and Dylan[sic] Roof, the individual who massacred 9 church-goers in Charleston, to vote from prison,” Graham tweeted.

“I look forward to hearing his explanation — in South Carolina — why Dylan[sic] Roof should be allowed to vote in the upcoming elections,” Graham continued.

During a CNN town hall on Monday, Bernie Sanders argued that convicted felons should not just regain the right to vote once they have been released from prison, but should be allowed to cast their vote while they are still serving their time.

Many conservatives were outraged about Bernie Sanders’ proposal. His radical idea was torched on social media moments after he shared it with the public. Few democrats, however, decided to join his idea and shared their support.

Kamala Harris also stated that it’s an opportune time for America to have a conversation about allowing convicts to cast their vote in America’s elections.

When asked by host Don Lemon about fellow presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’ proposal to let everybody vote, including even the Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, whose actions killed three people and injured 280 others back in 2013, she replied: “I think we should have that conversation.”

VIDEO: Bernie Sanders Bursts In Flames When Asked About His Taxes – Hypocrisy Called Out

This Monday during a Fox News town hall, Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders exploded when he was asked about accepting tax breaks that he voted against and why he didn’t send the money back, as he constantly is claiming that the wealthy need to pay more in taxes.

Fox News host Bret Baier first pressed Sanders on the issue, to which Sanders responded: “Pfft…come on…I am, I paid the taxes that I owe…why don’t you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes.”

Few moments later, Fox News host Martha MacCallum pressed him again on the issue, asking: “So would you be willing to pay 52% on the money that you made? You can volunteer, you can send it back.”

You can volunteer too,” Bernie Sanders responded. “Martha, why don’t you give? You make more money than I do.”

“I didn’t suggest a wealth tax,”Fox News host Martha MacCallum replied.

“And she’s not running for president,” Fox News host Bret Baier added.

Bernie Sanders’ entire defense was to point the finger at someone else and deflect.

When asked a question about HIM giving more, he immediately plays the “but what about Trump?” card without answering the question about himself. Pure political deflection. 

Dan Crenshaw Gives Bernie Sanders a Lesson After He Shamed Republicans

The funny thing about tweeting out easily digestible talking points. They can usually be debunked with also easily digestible tweets.

Bernie Sanders learned this when he tried shaming people for not supporting Medicare for All. He felt the burn at the hands of one of our greatest congressman, Rep. Dan Crenshaw. Who basically responded with “LOLWUT?” Only in nicer, more thoughtful manner.

“Oh this is an easy one.” posted Crenshaw. “Because your plan costs $32 trillion, and bankrupts my generation.”

“It takes away private employer plans from tens of millions of Americans.” he added. “But at least you recognize that Obamacare has not worked. We need more freedom and choice, not less.”

If we set aside health policy for an instant. All it does is make us think about how difficult Obamacare has made life for loved ones. The smartest thing Rep. Dan Crenshaw did, and it’s something I’ve seen him do many times before, is frame his argument as “our generation.”

They way the left-wing sell their policies to young people is as existential, systematic crises that will specifically affect THEIR generation. While on our side people are more focused on their grandparents yelling at the TV when someone turned off Fox News and they can’t find the remote.

Crenshaw speaks specifically for his generation. The Millennials. The voters we need to convince that our policies are right, and leftist policies are just silly.

As the other side talks to their generation about giving them lots of free stuff, it helps when we have people on our side reminding HIS generation how much the free stuff will cost them.

Bernie Sanders On Gun Control:’We Must Follow New Zealand’s Lead’

Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is urging the Trump administration to ban assault weapons and take some “real action to stop gun violence.”

On Thursday morning, Sanders took to Twitter and said that the United States should emulate the recent actions of New Zealand, where this week’s mosque shootings in which 50 people lost their lives have prompted the government to toughen already strict gun laws in the country.

“This is what real action to stop gun violence looks like. We must follow New Zealand’s lead, take on the NRA and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the United States,” tweeted Sanders.

Bernie Sanders cites a Washington Post article that details the “action” in New Zealand, where New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced Thursday that her government was banning semiautomatic weapons six days after shootings in two Christchurch mosques that killed 50 people. Police stated that the attacker was prepared for another attack.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern stated that she plans to buyback weapons that are already in circulation and prosecute anybody who doesn’t comply with the ban.

“On 15 March, our history changed forever. Now, our laws will, too,” Ardern said, according to the Post. “We are announcing action today on behalf of all New Zealanders to strengthen our gun laws and make our country a safer place.”

Bernie Sanders comes from a rural state where gun ownership is high and hunting is very popular. Eventhough he was reluctant to promote wide gun control as a senator, the senator supported an assault weapons ban back in 1994.

Sanders’ position hardened in February 2018 after the wake of the Parkland shootings, when a student killed 17 of his peers. Sanders was a popular speaker at Parkland rallies that advocated increased gun control in the United States.
