MUST WATCH! Leo scolds Geraldo Rivera: ‘How dare you blame Trump for that?’

“We have a rule of law. We have due process. And for you to come on this program and say that he was responsible is wrong.”

In another heated appearance with Geraldo Rivera on America’s Newsroom, Leo Terrell demanded evidence as to how Donald Trump caused the Capitol riot on January 6.

Rivera made it clear that he blames Trump for the riot, urging Congress to censure the former president.

“I think that what Congress has to do now, what the Senate specifically has to do, with this vote yesterday where it’s clear that 45 republicans are not going to go along with impeachment, I think – and I spoke with Senator Rob Portman this morning – what the Senate has to do is a joint bipartisan resolution to censure Donald Trump,” Rivera said. 

“Let’s censure him. Let’s say ‘what you did was unacceptable, you incited that, we know that you’re not going to be convicted on impeachment, we censure you, you can run for office later on down the road if you care to, if the people want you to.’ Let’s have a remedy for what happened that is achievable,” he added.  

Terrell snapped back, scolding Rivera for his accusation.

“How dare you blame Donald Trump for that?,” Terrell asked. “We have a rule of law. We have due process. And for you to come on this program and say that he was responsible is wrong,” he added.

“You should not say that and you should apologize to Donald Trump for that statement. You have no facts to justify that.” 

“President Trump needs to apologize to us,” Rivera pushed back. 

“No, you’re wrong,” Terrell replied, demanding Rivera provide evidence to back up his statements.

“I think you should review the First Amendment again because I will ask you right now on TV, tell me the words, the magic words that he used to incite those criminals. Tell me the magic words right now, Geraldo,” Terrell urged.  

“I’ll give you three weeks of incitement,” Rivera said. “What in the hell do you think that crowd was going to do when they got to the Capitol, what were they going to do?” 

“That’s speculation,” Terrell said.

    I agree with Leo Terrell again. And it’s getting to be habitual now.
    LT 2.0 talks nothing but good sense and that is entirely disarming to those who come from emotion- and prejudice-based judgments and appeals You look like a dope denying or shape-shifting away from facts, rule of law, and logic.
    Leo, you are firing on all cylinders, my man. May you have the strength to carry on. You inspire me to fine a way to get in the fray along with you. I’ll find a way.

    I have been saying the same thing as Leo since January 6th. Show me the words. We already saw how the transcript of the Ukraine discussion between Trump and Zelensky exonerated Trump. Let’s see the transcript of the DC Rally. The worst thing the Democrats can say is he said “Fight for your country”. “Fight” is used by politicians all the time. It only means to work hard. Biden’s campaign raising committee was called the “Biden Fight Fund”. Was that to support insurrections during the elections. How about the political term “war chest”. So get real Democrats and stop your whining. You won the election in the court room based on technicalities like jurisdiction and standing (not ballots). Stop being such sore winners. It’s the only thing worse than a sore loser.

    Thank you Leo for being tough with these idiots. The media and the democratic party are more to blame than anyone, and we know why.

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

Published

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
