The NY Times just got a bunch of people killed.

All because of its hatred of Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress.

Here’s how. (Thread)

nytimes.com/2018/08/24/us/… The Times wants us to believe our Russian intel sources have dried up.

Reporters @julianbarnes & @AllMattNYT shared classified details that speak of our struggling clandestine efforts against Putin & his regime.

Never mind that highlighting our weakness atrenghrens his hand.

Defining “Socialist” isn’t hard. You just have to read their work & listen to their leaders

And what you’ll find is frightening

Worse yet, the Dem Socialists of America (DSA) actually has a good shot of gaining power if we don’t wake up & fight back

Let’s read their plan: 1/17 .@DemSocialists want to abolish capitalism and transfer ownership of “essential” industries / related businesses to the govt or worker committees.

Why?

“Wealth is a social creation and should be controlled by society as a whole.”

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez — the alleged future of the #DemocraticParty — explains that she wants:

1) Death to capitalism & profit
2) Free housing, college, & healthcare
3) Open borders
4) End to killing terrorists

Here’s why this Dem thinks she‘s nuts. (1/6)

pbs.org/video/alexandr… Capitalism has eliminated more poverty than any economic system on the planet.

Period.

Is it a perfect system? Not by a long shot. But Ocasio’s dream would unquestionably put at risk millions of people who have climbed out of poverty.

Just ask anyone who lives in Venezuela.

You asked about racial violence between cops and people of color.

Fundamentally, you're asking if #BLM is right.

Let's start a conversation about what we know - and what we don't - about police, bias, and the killing of our fellow citizens. (1/14) Most of us would agree that a single death of an innocent person by a police officer is one too many.

Black or white.

Police departments agree. They have training & oversight to ensure shootings don't happen or officers are punished when an unjustifiable killing occurs.

Yes, I’m an angry #Democrat.

We’re not a reasonable party anymore. We’ve exhausted ourselves with conspiracies & outrage while ignoring facts & careful analysis.

Then we have the audacity to complain about the fatigue of it all.

Let’s review the party’s madness. (1/11) Since our #2016Election loss, we have flopped in every direction to find an excuse for our failure.

Blame the 63M deplorable Trump voters.

Blame the #ElectoralCollege.

Blame Comey.

Blame the Russians.

No. Stop it. Blame Clinton, the DNC, & her primary voters. They suck.

Our foreign affairs must be strategic.

#CentralAmerica is a priority because of immigration. Illegal migrants cost us billions.

Meanwhile, all focus must be on containing the Communist #China threat. Where that involves alliances w/ poor nations, aid must be rendered. The plan for #CentralAmerica is being retooled by WH’s John Kelly & DHS. (reut.rs/2JVEIzy)

I believe a further step is needed w/ a stabilization force, built with a coalition of Latin American nations.

Meanwhile, let’s beef up our border (fence/wall/tech solutions).

Illegal minors can’t be imprisoned w/ adult parents. Bush & Obama released all onto US soil til judges ruled. Rife w/ abuse.

Trump stopped this by separating illegals & their kids, holding both in jails & camps. All to force DC to fix the broken system.

It’s a brutal strategy. While we debate whether #Trump’s strategy is right (or humane), the facts are being distorted.

Case in point: the holding facilities for kids (both accompanied by adults and those running on their own).

The left paints them as Nazi camps. They’re not. wapo.st/2t3sE8G

Let’s tackle it, brother...

A thread on the #GayWeddingCake decision, asking a simple question:

How can a gay guy support the Christian baker?

To the thread! Let’s start with a scenario: I decide to get married. (Gulp)

First, I understand that society is evolving. My religion is evolving. My family is evolving.

That’s just life.

To those that reject me, I offer grace, love, & patience. In my quiet moments, I feel pangs of sorrow.
