Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) traveled to New Hampshire on Saturday and claimed “our democracy is at stake” because “we all stand on the shoulders of immigrants.” Klobuchar was quick to call out President Donald Trump for his previous remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and said the “send her back” chant that occurred at his North Carolina rally made it more “clear” than ever that our democracy is at stake.“And I think you know your obligation is great this year,” Klobuchar told the small crowd of supporters in Concord, New Hampshire.She added, “If you didn’t think that before — after this week and the things

If Democrats insist on making this election all about (illegal) immigrants and slavery reparations, let them. I can not see the selling point beyond the fringe.

It's always been about giving freebies to illegals so they'll vote Democrat, because Democrats have destroyed their reputation with real Americans who know what they're truly about. If they ever get this accomplished they will embed themselves so deep in corruption and nefarious legislation you will never see a conservative, America-loving, politician ever win another election. America will no longer be the America you grew up in. It's already changed so much that the America of my childhood (1950's) is just a fond memory.

My step grandfather was a legal immigrant. He was healthy, learned English, passed a test of American history and civics, was hard working, built a house, became a Republican, and was very proud of being American. He did not receive benefits or medical care, survived the Depression and WWII, try to convert us to his religion, work under the table then send the money back home, bring his whole family here (he never saw them again), smuggle drugs or burn flags. There's a big difference.

Legal immigrants - NOT illegal aliens. Never confuse the two, no matter how often the Dems try to confuse them. Legal immigrants are honest people, who came here following the rules to become Americans. Illegal aliens are criminals who have broken into our country, here to steal jobs and welfare and send much of the money back to their own countries as remittances. The two categories have nothing to do with each other.

In a pair of tweets, the president lashed out at both MacCallum and Swalwell, who told Fox about the Judiciary panel's upcoming hearing with Robert Mueller, the former special counsel in charge of the FBI's investigation into the Trump campaign and Russian election interference.

Mental health experts warned in an online event meant to convince Congress and the public Tuesday that President Trump incited his followers to violence, with one psychiatrist comparing Trump's rallies to those of Adolf Hitler. The experts, four psychiatrists and one clinical psychologist, presented their positions alongside a mental health analysis of special counsel Robert Mueller's 448-page report, in which they concluded Trump does not have the sound mental capacity to function in his role as president. Dr. James Merikangas, a psychiatrist from George Washington University, said the chanting at Trump's rallies were reminiscent of "Nuremberg rallies that Adolf Hilter had."

CNN continued bashing President Trump for his rhetoric against the Squad on Tuesday. CNN Right Now invited Wajahat Ali, a New York Times columnist and CNN contributor, on to speak about Trump’s comments.Ali criticized the President and his supporters for contributing to a “pattern” of what he considers “white nationalism.” He then spouted out a number of falsehoods to back up this claim. The columnist accused Trump of calling Mexicans rapists, a lie that even Politifact gave a false rating to during the 2016 election. He also falsely stated that there was a “Muslim ban,” but the Trump administration has never implemented a ban on Muslims entering the country.
