Even Dems Think Their Candidates Are a “Disgrace”

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – Anyone who has been paying attention to the Democratic primary race already knows that Liberals have a mess on their hands. Apparently, some on the Left are starting to figure that out too.

Democratic Rep. Debbie Dingell, an influential member of the House from Michigan, described the most recent debate this way:

Dingell also said that they were adding to the current division in the US by stoking “fear and hatred” with their rhetoric.

Many people have been quick to blame the CBS moderators for this week’s disastrous debate. Dingell, however, says that the moderators aren’t the ones to blame. In her opinion, the candidates are responsible for their own embarrassing behavior.

“It was disgusting. They [talked over] each other. They fought each other. They came with lines to destroy each other,” Dingell said.

The Michigan rep. then stated what everyone should already know at this point: The attacks these candidates are launching against one another now will only help make sure President Trump is re-elected in November.

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – When someone says illegal immigrants aren’t a threat to our safety, tell them this story.

A 20-year-old man, who’s in the country illegally, has been charged with the assault of an 11-year-old girl in Maryland.

Jonathan Coreas-Salamanca, 20, was arrested on Feb. 13 at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring — where he is a student. Ivan Reyes Lopez, 19, was also arrested this month at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. Both men have been charged with forcibly violating the little girl.

According to authorities, Coreas-Salamanca is a citizen of El Salvador and is not in the US legally.

US Customs Enforcement (ICE) Spokeswoman Kaitlyn Pote said ICE is holding Coreas-Salamanca on a detainer for allegedly assaulting the young girl.

The victim’s father contacted authorities when he discovered explicit text messages between Coreas-Salamanca and his daughter that described their encounters in graphic detail. There were also disturbing photos. Future meetups between the two had been already arranged as well.

Boehner: Dem Division Is a “Serious Problem” for Liberals

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – If the 2020 election has shown us anything, it’s that there’s a deep divide in the Democratic party.

In a recent interview, former Speaker of the House John Boehner said that the divide continues to grow between progressives that support Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and the moderates who support candidates like Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Former Vice President Joe Biden.

The former House Speaker explained that this division within the party will keep Democrats from winning the upcoming election.

“At one point, they’re going to have to have a nominee and whoever that nominee is is going to have a hard time bringing the party back together,” said Boehner.

Boehner went on to point out that it hurt them in the 2016 election already when Bernie supporters refused to vote for Hillary.

Will Democrats be able to heal the rift within their party? Only time will tell, but all of the strife is definitely good news for the president. Although his support is already shored up, the angrier Dems are at each other, the less energy they spend on him.

Free Speech on College Campuses: What We All Have Wrong

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – Free speech on college campuses has been a hot-button issue for a while now. Both conservatives and liberals are quick to point out where they think the problems are. However, recent studies show that both sides have it wrong.

Different Ideologies

Conservatives point to speakers who have been uninvited from colleges or being interrupted during their speeches. In their eyes, college professors are to blame because they use their influence to indoctrinate students with their liberal ideals.

Liberals have different complaints when it comes to college campuses and the First Amendment. They firmly believe that conservatives are blowing the situation way out of proportion. In their eyes, Republicans always want to play the victim and are using free speech as an excuse to do just that.

What Researchers Found

When looking at issues regarding free expression at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, researchers found that the narratives coming from both liberals and conservatives are flawed.

According to a survey of UNC students, they do, indeed, censor themselves. There was a divide between right-leaning and liberal-leaning students when it came to how often they kept their opinion to themselves. While 68% of conservative students said they censored themselves, only 23% of liberal students said the same.

But here’s the surprise: Students censor themselves not just because of their professors, but also because of how they think their peers might react.

When asked if their professors “encouraged participation from liberals and conservatives alike,” an overwhelming majority said they did with only 2% of liberals and 11% of conservatives saying no. In response to the question of whether their instructor “was interested in learning from people with opinions that differed from the instructor’s own opinions,” only 6% of liberals and 14% of conservatives said no.

However, students reported that their real anxiety came from concerns over their peers rather than professors. This was also where there was the largest divide between right-leaning and left-leaning students.

A whopping 75% of conservative students said they worried about what other students would think of their political ideals but only 26% of liberal students shared this fear. Similarly, 46% of conservative students said they were concerned with reactions to their social media posts. Only 10% of liberal students worried about this.

Right-Leaning Students Feel More Pressure

Clearly, students do have fears about using their right to free speech on college campuses. It’s also obvious that conservative students are the ones who feel as though they’ll be ostracized for their opinions. And if we look around the country, to all of the right-leaning speakers who’ve been met with animosity on campuses, it seems as though they are correct.

While the professors may not be indoctrinating students, their peers absolutely make their lives uncomfortable, according to the conservatives who attend college. For that reason, they are forced to stay silent and that is not what our Founding Fathers envisioned for this country.

Update – Coronavirus and the Olympics

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – As the Coronavirus outbreak continues to rage, some people are starting to worry about the impact this epidemic could have on the Olympic Games. In fact, Team USA is already taking steps to protect athletes and their families.

The World Waits

The 2020 Olympics are scheduled to be held in Tokyo staring July 24th. Organizers of the games have said they are doing what they can to stop the illness from spreading in and around Tokyo. Currently, more than 75,000 people around the world have contracted the virus with a death toll reaching over 2,000.

While some sporting events in Asia have been postponed, so far, there aren’t any plans to move the games.

Team USA

Tokyo officials aren’t the only ones keeping an eye on things. The US team released a statement saying that the athletes and their families are the number one priority. The Chief of Sport Performance, Rick Adams, said non-essential travel to China, Singapore and Hong Kong has been suspended. As of now, however, they aren’t changing their plans for the Olympic games.

If it becomes unsafe to go forward, Adams said they are “prepared to take every” precaution necessary for the safety of everyone involved.
