Rep. Crenshaw’s Former Opponent Insults His Eye Lost In War

Published

Crenshaw

After Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) called out failed presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for making false claims on Twitter, failed congressional candidate Democrat Elisa Cardnell insulted Crenshaw while referencing the eye he lost fighting for his country.

Cardnell launched a very unsuccessful bid for Rep. Crenshaw’s House seat in 2020, coming nowhere near winning the Democrat primary for the district. Cardnell likely felt a sense of comradery and loyalty to Warren, as they both lost their respective elections so dramatically, causing her to insult the war hero who won his election overwhelmingly.

“The reason you can’t see the objective truth isn’t because of your eyes; its because how far you have your nose up your Dear Leader’s a$$,” Cardnell tweeted.
“Actually it’s just ‘eye,’ singular,” Crenshaw replied.

Crenshaw lost his right eye a decade ago in an explosion in Afghanistan during his third deployment. His left eye was also severely damaged and required surgery and began having problems again earlier this year.

“People are, like, ‘well, he definitely lost one eye but at least he has the other one.’ That’s actually never been true. I’ve always had a really badly damaged one eye,” Crenshaw said. “Back in January, I had some flashes off to the corner of my vision. Imagine looking at a screen too long and maybe some distortions associated with that … that blinking, that’s sort of what I saw.”

“I was really confronted with permanent blindness this time because a retinal detachment is very, very dangerous,” Crenshaw added.

Describing his current vision, Crenshaw said, “Wear a dive mask, put some bubble bath in it and rub the lenses with Vaseline and that’s sort of what I see.”
Crenshaw also added that the tragedies he endured were something to be expected when signing up to protect American lives. He said, “Is something hard, yes? Is it hard compared to what? In compared to who? What they had to deal with? You know, that should stiffen your spine sometimes.”

    The Left is coming unhinged as a result of Marxist propaganda, and their disruptive policies by Joe Biden and the his backers in State and Federal Governments.

    Vision isn’t needed if just listen to their messages filled with hate and denegrations of the American People.

    Tides lifts all boats, and the Republicans, led by President Trumps vision, is a beacon we not only see, but feel.

    How insensitive, but as vulgar and malicious as one expects from the young Democrats. Where did they learn to be so mean, spiteful, and vicious. What training program do they attend, certainly not their parents or ,gasp, church.

    And the Democratic Party and their candidates continue their onslaught on the Unborn so far to the tune of 64 Million. Now they are promoting sexual promiscuity for Kindergarteners similar to the Children Of Moab of teaching them molestation of themselves and other children. And you wonder how it was so easy for them to commit voter fraud. They worship at the alter of Satan. Lest you forget Obama was mentored by Saul Alinsky a satanic socialist who also called himself a community organizer. By the way, it was known that Obama was bisexual.

BLM Leader Vows to ‘Abolish’ NYC Mayor De Blasio’s Vax Passports

Says ‘Free Pass to Racism’,  ‘Modern-Day Freedom Papers’

Published

Chivona Newsome

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio’s vaccine mandates and consequential vaccine passports necessary to enter most bars and restaurants in the city are being dubbed racist by a Black Lives Matter leader.

Chivona Newsome co-founded the Greater New York Chapter of BLM and also ran as a congressional candidate in 2020 for New York’s 15th district sent a statement to Fox News explaining the claims of racism.

“Although Mayor Bill De Blasio ran on progressives values, nothing in his tenure will attest to his campaign promises,” Newsome stated. “The September 13th vaccine mandate is racist and specifically targets Black New Yorkers. The vaccination passports are modern-day Freedom Papers, which limit the free will of Black people.”

De Blasio’s mandates went into effect September 13, ordering indoor establishments making patrons show proof of vaccination before entering. Businesses can face fines up to $5,000 for not complying. On September 20, the Mayor’s office announced it had already issued 3,200 warnings to businesses in the first week.

Newsome continued, “The vaccination mandates infringe upon the civil liberties of the Black community…It’s more than where we can dine or enjoy entertainment, it will result in loss of income. As of Monday, September 27, Black health care workers and educators will lose their jobs.”

Newsome’s concerns for minorities and repercussions such as losing jobs is the same reasoning hundreds of groups and unions across the country have stood up against Biden’s vaccine mandate. Postal workers, Police unions, Nurse Unions and Hospital administrators are all amongst those expressing outrage.

Newsome says De Blasio’s actions are a direct attack on black Americans, and he “chose to disenfranchise and force the very people who elected him into poverty and second-class citizenship.”

She explained that de Blasio is, “fully aware of the hesitancy and distrust people of African descent have about vaccination and their interactions with government and law enforcement.” Newsome concluded, “the vaccination passport will not be a free pass to racism. Our organization pledges to demonstrate until the vaccine mandate is abolished.”

Democrat Pushes Back On False Claim Border Patrol Agents Whipped Migrants

Published

Henry Cuellar

During a CNN interview on Tuesday, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) pushed back on false claims by other Democrat lawmakers that U.S. Border Patrol agents riding horses were swinging whips at illegal immigrants trying to cross the southern border.

CNN anchor Victor Blackwell pushed the false information during, saying the Border Patrol agents were hitting migrants with what “appears to use what looks like a rope or a lasso” and then asking Cuellar for his reaction.

“Well, you know, certainly, we got to make sure we treat all the immigrants with respect and dignity,” Cuellar responded. “But I will say this, Border Patrol has had those horse brigades for a while, they’ve had them for a while, number one. Number two, they don’t carry whips. And they do not carry lassos. I think the picture you’re talking about, at least the one I’ve seen is the rein, the rein of the horses.”

“And should those be used? Should those be used should even if it is a rein?” Blackwell asked.

“Well, again, if there was a problem, it should be investigated,” Cuellar responded. “And I think that’s it, but we cannot paint the Border Patrol with that same type of paintbrush. Look, you know, what are they supposed to do? Just stand there and let everybody come in? You know, they’re supposed to be enforcing the law, but again, as to how you enforce the law, you got to make sure you treat people with dignity and respect.”

The CNN interview came after a video surfaced of illegal immigrants attempting to evade U.S. Border Patrol agents on horses and run into the country. In response, many Democrats falsely declared that the agents were using whips on the migrants – despite the fact that Border Patrol agents do not carry whips and there being zero evidence any of the agents struck any of the migrants.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), for example, tweeted, “The images of inhumane treatment of Haitian migrants by Border Patrol—including the use of whips—are unacceptable They are fleeing violence and natural disaster and seeking protection in our country The Administration must uphold our refugee laws and stop Title 42 deportations.”
