According to Reuters on May 10th, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a US$40 billion bill to extend further assistance to Ukraine by 368 to 57. Besides funds for security assistance and replenishing stocks of U.S. equipment sent to Ukraine, the legislation authorized a further $11 billion in Presidential Drawdown Authority, which allows the President to authorize the transfer of articles and services from U.S. stocks without congressional approval in response to an emergency.

Weird: Top Democrat Pushes Back, Sides With the Truth

Weird: Top Democrat Pushes Back, Sides With the Truth

Key Democrat Leader Flips Leftists the Bird

Well this is weird….apparently, a top Democrat is now pushing back and siding with the truth for once. Will wonders never cease?

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) is now pushing back against the recent criticism of U.S.Border Patrol agents who rode on horseback to force those Hatian asylum seekers out of Del Rio, Texas after this border town had become overwhelmed with illegal aliens in a matter of days last September.

Cuellar appeared on CNN on Tuesday and disputed these false narratives that had emerged from that inaccurate news report claiming that an agent had swung a “whip” while charging with his horse toward these illegal asylum seekers. This misinformation was amplified by several of his fellow Democrats and possibly further exaggerating it with the help of CNN anchor Victor Blackwell, who also said on the air, no less, that the agent “appears to use what looks like a rope or a lasso” while referring to a photograph taken during this particular encounter.

“Well, you know, certainly, we got to make sure we treat all the immigrants with respect and dignity,” Cuellar said. “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 reins of the horses.”

Of course, there is a lot of misinformation out there, and Cuellar was quick to point out that if there is indeed a problem with the agent’s conduct, then they should look into it but we also shouldn’t “paint the Border Patrol with that same type of paintbrush.”

“But again, that’s not a whip, that is not a lasso,” Cuellar added later. “They do not carry that. That seems to be the reins from the horse itself.”

Representative Cuelllar later went on to correct a CNN host who is upset about the border agents being on horseback: “The picture you’re talking about, at least the one I’ve seen, is the rein, the rein of the horse … What are they supposed to do, just stand there and let everybody come in?”

TRANSCRIPT:

VICTOR BLACKWELL, CNN HOST: Let me ask you about some of the images we’re seeing of border guards on horseback chasing or charging migrants on these horses. At least one appears to use what looks like a rope or lasso. These are Haitians who have crossed into Mexico to buy food and ice because that’s running out under the bridge and then cross back. What’s your reaction to what you’re seeing here?

REP. HENRY CUELLAR (D-TX): Well, you know, certainly, we got to make sure we treat all the immigrants with respect and dignity. 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.

BLACKWELL: And should those be used? Should those be used should even if it is a rein?

CUELLAR: Well, again, if there was a problem, it should be investigated. 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.

BLACKWELL: Yeah, but does that mean forcing the law require what you’re seeing there? Is that the way that people should be treated?

CUELLAR: Yeah, again, that incident will be looked at. But again, that’s not a whip, that is not a lasso. They do not carry that. That seems to be the reins from the horse itself.

BLACKWELL: You’re creating a distinction between swinging a rein at someone versus a whip. I don’t know that, as we heard from the White House that they make that distinction. Let me ask you about all the other elements that are happening in the house.

While this might be weird, there is no question that Representative Cuellar definitely held his own!

Watch: Democrat Rep. David Cicilline Pulls Down Mask to Sneeze into His Hand

Watch: Democrat Rep. David Cicilline Pulls Down Mask to Sneeze into His Hand

Democrat U.S. Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) pulled his mask down while on the House floor on Wednesday to sneeze into his hand.

Watch:

Cicilline, an impeachment manager, was participating in the Democrats’ effort to impeachment President Trump for a second time.

As he was seated behind Rep. Yvette Clark (D-NY), who was speaking, Cicilline pulled down his mask and sneezed into his left hand.

He then put his mask back in place. Moments later, he left his seat. After returning, he put the same hand on Clark’s shoulder.

Several Democrats have called for financial penalties against members of Congress who do not wear a mask on the floor.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), who recently announced she had contracted the coronavirus, blamed Republicans and said there should be “serious fines” for those who refuse to wear one.

“Additionally, any Member who refuses to wear a mask should be immediately removed from the floor by the Sergeant at Arms. This is not a joke. Our lives and our livelihoods are at risk, and anyone who refuses to wear a mask should be fully held accountable for endangering our lives because of their selfish idiocy,” she claimed.

Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) proposed a $1,000-a-day fine for members if they don’t comply.

“We’re done playing games. Either have some common sense and wear a damn mask or pay a fine. It’s not that complicated,” Dingell said, according to the Detroit News.
