Marion Co. Jail in Indiana releases illegal immigrant involved in hit-and-run

What is going on in central Indiana?

The Marion County Jail in Indianapolis has let an illegal immigrant simply walk out of jail.

You may remember that Juana Loa-Nunez is accused of striking a kindergarten teacher crossing the road, just trying to get to work. Loa-Nunez then attempted to flee the scene, but fellow motorists boxed her vehicle in, not allowing her to run.

The woman struck suffered injuries to her legs.

It was later learned that Loa-Nunez was in the country illegally and did not have a license.

Well, now the blame game is under way in central Indiana. That’s because Loa-Nunez was allowed to just walk out of jail after posting $250 bail.

According to WISH-TV, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement notified the Marion County Jail that they wanted to take her into custody.

The Marion County Jail says they notified ICE of a four-hour window to pick up Loa-Nunez and that immigration officials failed to act.

Now, everyone is full damage control releasing statements.

The following statement is from ICE:

“Without any regard for the safety of its citizens, on May 10, Marion County brazenly ignored an immigration detainer and released a Mexican woman from its jail without first notifying U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  The woman it released is an illegal alien who is accused of hitting and badly injuring a pedestrian, and then fleeing the scene before being pursued and stopped by conscientious citizens.  Marion County allowed this woman to go free, and she continues to be a danger to anyone else who happens to be on the same road she drives.

“As law enforcement professionals, ICE and Marion County should both have the same ultimate goal in mind — to protect the public by combating criminals and holding accountable those who break our laws.  ICE helps fulfill that role by removing criminal aliens and other immigration violators from the streets, and from the United States.  ICE can do its job more effectively when local officials actively work to protect its citizens by honoring ICE immigration detainers.”

But the Marion County Jail responded and blamed ICE for Loa-Nunez’s release:

United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently released a statement blaming the Marion County for the release of Juana Noemi Loa-Nunez from the Marion County Jail. In accord with the ruling of Federal Judge Sarah Evans Barker, and Indiana law, ICE was given four hours notice to take custody of Ms. Loa-Nunez. ICE failed to act in accord with the law by failing to pick up this individual in a timely manner.

“Judge Sarah Evans Barker has ruled that ICE must provide a criminal warrant or a criminal probable cause affidavit for the County to detail undocumented individuals. ICE failed to provide such documentation, despite receiving timely notice. Thus, ICE allowed this individual to go free.

“If ICE wished to challenged the ruling of Judge Sarah Evans Barker, it could have done so. It did not.

“United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, not the Sheriffs of Indiana, is charged with the enforcement of immigration law. However, Marion County acts wholly in accord with the ruling of Judge Sarah Evans Barker and Indiana law.”

Now, the likelihood of ever finding her is pretty slim.

This is simply ridiculous.

And let’s remember this is happening in conservative, red state Indiana.

As they say, this is why Trump was elected.

Congressman Messer nominates Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

President of United States. Businessman. Real estate mogul. Reality TV star.

Yes, all of those currently describe the man who resides in the White House, but if House Republicans get their way, Trump could add yet another title.

A number of House Republicans, headed up by Congressman Luke Messer, have nominated President Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.

The letter, addressed to the Nobel Committee, says in part:

“We, the undersigned members of the United States Congress, respectfully nominate Donald J. Trump to receive the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his work to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean peninsula and bring peace to the region.”

To have the North and South Korea talking, let alone discussing an official end to the Korean War, is pretty amazing and yes, Donald Trump does deserve credit for his part. Trump has been active in the region, even agreeing to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

Trump should get recognition for his part in that area of the world, but let’s be honest, Messer knows what he’s doing. Messer is locked in a tight primary battle against Congressman Rokita and former State Rep. Mike Braun. This letter gets Messer some earned media at an opportune time and helps tie him closer to Trump, the overriding factor in this primary battle.

However, with all the names on the letter, it’s oddly surprising that Trump’s supposed “best friend” and “right-hand man,” Rokita’s signature is missing.

 

 

 

Pompeo confirmed as secretary of state

President Donald Trump officially has a new secretary of state.  CIA Director Mike Pompeo was confirmed Thursday with a 57-42 vote in the Senate.

A number of Democrats even voted to confirm Pompeo, including Indiana’s own, Joe Donnelly. One could easily come to the conclusion that this was a vote to help him in his November reelection effort in red state Indiana, where Trump continues to be popular.

All Republicans voted to confirm except Arizona Senator John McCain, who abstained.

Pompeo replaces former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who Trump fired in March. Tillerson apparently learned of his dismissal on Twitter.

Likely, one of the first things Pompeo is likely to do in his new position, if he’s not already doing so, is to follow @RealDonaldTrump on Twitter and check it often.

 

Chance the Rapper has liberals upset now

Every election season, there are issues and topics that are bound to come up.  The state of the economy, Democrats accusing Republicans of threatening women’s healthcare (abortion on demand) and that conservatives are total and complete racists, who all wear white hoods in their free time.

Needless to say liberals love identity politics. Why wouldn’t they? It helps get them votes. Hillary Clinton’s entire campaign was based on the fact that she was a woman and that any female who didn’t vote for her was betraying their gender.

Don’t believe me? The “I’m with Her” candidate said it herself.

Another big voting bloc for the Democratic Party is African-Americans. It’s just generally assumed, at least for Democrats, that black people will and should be Democrats. Why, because, according to Democrats, Republicans and conservatives are evil, vile and are certainly racist people.

So, any time some breaks out of this mold, this thinking that women are supposed to vote and think one way or that African-Americans are supposed to vote a particular way, it upsets things a tad, to say the least.

Don’t believe me?  Take a look at all the nice things liberals are saying to Chance the Rapper about this tweet.

See, thinking outside the box is not generally welcomed by loving, accepting liberals. It just takes a simple tweet to set them off.

 

These Kanye West tweets have liberals going crazy

In case you weren’t aware, Kanye West has been causing a massive stir as of late on social media. And no, it’s not because he’s called himself a genius once again.

Instead, it’s the rapper’s frequent conservative tweets that have twitter users and liberals in general, losing their minds.

You see, this the kind of thing Yee has been tweeting lately, but the world was not prepared for what he was about to put on his Twitter timeline next, especially, once again, liberals.

Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. That is in fact a photo of Kanye wearing a MAGA hat and also Kanye’s MAGA hat signed by President Trump.

Here’s just a sampling of some the liberals that aren’t too thrilled with Kanye.

Triggered much?

As liberals tell us over and over again, diversity is something they cherish and hold to their hearts, likely causing it to skip a beat when they witness it. However, thought diversity apparently isn’t allowed in a liberals ideal world and if nothing else, West’s tweets have brought that fact to life.

What a crazy world we live in, right? I mean, remember this little incident about ten years ago?

Who would’ve thought this guy would be embraced by those on the right. Once again, what a crazy world we live in.

Vox: Never Trumpers Should Vote Democrat

I’m going to level with you here – I was a Never Trumper. I’m still not impressed with this President, and find his morals and ego repulsive, although I will credit him when he does something good. (Gorsuch and signing the tax bill which gets rid of the individual mandate AND puts more money in my pocket. Can’t argue with that.)

This may make some readers unhappy, but I believe in principles over party and like it or not, Donald Trump is not a conservative. The MAGA crowd crows about RINOs in Congress but the biggest RINO of all is living in the White House. Sure he’s done a few conservative things but fundamentally, the President is nothing like the GOP party of old. And truthfully, that party has been slipping away for quite some time, but with the rise of a populist candidate like Trump, it seems that it will probably never return to the days of limited government and low spending.

So what’s a Never Trumper to do in a political climate where most GOP candidates seem to be riding the Trump Train to get elected? According to Vox, it’s vote Democrat.

And to that, I say: HELL NO.

From Vox:

I’ll lay out the case below, but the reasoning is not that complicated: There are, for all intents and purposes, two parties contending in the American system. If you believe one of them is an existential threat to that system … you should vote for the other one. Because one of them is going to win.

Popular conceptions of the GOP — that it is driven primarily by conservative economic principles like small government, low taxes, and deregulation — are also wrong. It turns out those things were the preoccupations of a thin and unrepresentative conservative elite, primarily in DC. The Tea Party uprising and its culmination in Trump were driven by white resentment and white backlash.

Sigh.

It’s a conundrum, really.

And let’s be clear – Trump didn’t win because he’s racist. I am tired of that argument and tired of liberal rags like Vox using that narrative. There were plenty of Obama voters who went Trump in 2016 and they probably propelled Trump to his victory.

But let’s get back to the suggestion that Never Trumpers should vote Democrat.

I’m not going to vote for pro-abortion candidates. I also won’t vote for someone who wants to take my gun away. And why in the world would I vote for a party that wants to tax me even more? As far as I can tell, Democrats that fit these requirements are nearly non-existent and if they are out there, they won’t go against their party’s platform when the time comes to vote.

There’s too much that ideologically separates the parties, especially when it comes to socialist policies. And socialism IS the rising star in the Democrat party. Look at Bernie Sanders – millennials loved him and didn’t turn out for Hillary Clinton, who arguably could be considered an old school, more conservative Democrat than what’s present in the party today.

If Vox truly believes that the majority of Never Trumpers are going to vote Democrat just to clean house, they’re sorely mistaken. It’s a much better idea to vote libertarian, as their principles usually align more closely with that of the GOP.

The best solution would be the formation of a new conservative party. And that would probably take generations to even make a difference IF they could somehow even make themselves a factor in our elections. The two party system has a stranglehold on that.

But probably the most logical solution would be to run GOP candidates who have the guts to stand up to the President when he’s wrong. A few already exist – let’s elect more people like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Jeff Flake who are not afraid to criticize the President when he’s wrong and even go against their own party in the name of liberty.

Trump is a stain on the Republican Party but he doesn’t have to be a lasting one.

Shania Twain Apologizes for Saying She Would Have Voted for Trump

Country-pop superstar Shania Twain caused a stir yesterday when she said in an interview with The Guardian that if she would have been able to vote in the Presidential election that it would have been for Donald Trump.

Here’s the excerpt from that interview that caused such a ruckus on social media.

It is not the only way in which she expresses her conservatism. If she had been able to vote in the US election, she would have plumped for Donald Trump, she says. “I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bullshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

That’s it. In a very long interview, mostly about her life and career, this paragraph that was near the very end, caused people to lose their minds and prompted Twain to apologize/clarify what she meant.

This is really a non-story and why The Guardian even asked her about it is questionable. Twain is Canadian and therefore ineligible to vote in US elections, so it really doesn’t matter who she hypothetically might have voted for. Not to mention, it has nothing else to do with the profile piece about her life.

And if she had been able to vote for Donald Trump and felt that was the right choice – she shouldn’t apologize for anything.

Celebrities who say something different than what’s expected of them need to stop bowing to the liberal mob when they start crying about an opinion they don’t agree with. Last time I checked, people were free to think whatever they want and vote for whomever they like.
