After being retweeted by Trump, businessman surprises veteran with a new carPulte Capital CEO Bill Pulte argued on Saturday that President Trump changed the face of philanthropy, noting that he was able to raise thousands of dollars for veterans after the president retweeted him.”I’m not sure many other presidents would have done it, and literallly with one tweet — he calls it his typewriter, I call it his magic typewriter — he literally punched a whole in the reality of philanthropy,” Pulte told “Fox & Friends” on Saturday.Pulte’s comments came after Trump’s help allowed him to buy a car for a combat veteran. He initially sent Trump a message on Twitter, pledging to give $30,000 to a Veteran if the president retweeted him.
A 38-year-old Queens woman seeking the GOP line to run against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is under fire from fellow Republicans for previously praising the Democratic socialist superstar as well as voting for Barack Obama for president.
Scherie Murray, a Jamaican-born woman who grew up in Queens and founded a TV production and advertising company, told The Post she voted for Obama, a Democrat, in both the 2008 and 2012 elections.
She said it was because “as a young African American woman” she “was inspired by the first African American president’s message of change.”Murray also crossed party lines in June 2018 to hail Ocasio-Cortez on social media after the eventual congresswoman upset 10-term incumbent and longtime Queens power broker Joe Crowley in a primary.
“Congratulations Alexandria,” she then tweeted. “#Queens is headed in a new direction and It’s time for new leadership. #Yes.”Now, a little over a year later, she’s vying for Ocasio-Cortez’s seat representing the state’s 14th District that encompasses parts of Queens and the Bronx.
While kicking off her campaign on Wednesday, Murray even released a scathing video accusing the left-wing media darling of “self-promotion over service.”
Some Republican pols say Murray would be a poor choice considering she’s a former Democrat who currently lives outside the district in Laurelton, Queens, switched parties a decade ago and has a history of backing Democrats.
“AOC is a socialist carpetbagger and since Scherie Murray voted for Obama, praised AOC after she won and doesn’t live in the district, it seems like they are two peas in a pod,” said Elizabeth English, a Republican district leader in the Bronx.“How can Republicans trust either of them? We deserve better.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson points out the lack of factual differentiation between the two dozen remaining Democrat presidential candidates fighting to get to the top of the moral superiority platform.
President Donald Trump scored a win — a temporary one at least — on Friday against investigations from House Democrats after a federal judge halted Democrats’ subpoenas of the Trump Organization’s financial records.“Judge Emmet Sullivan made the decision Friday shortly after the appeals court above him said it wanted to hear the emoluments case,” CNN reported. “The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said Friday it should hear the case, about the emoluments clause of the Constitution, before the Democrats collect evidence. But the court isn’t ready to hear the case just yet. The panel of three judges directed the Justice Department and the lower court on Friday to take more legal steps, because of legal technicalities, before it will hear the case.”
At a time when many high-profile politicians are comfortable proposing laws that impose serious burdens on the right to keep and bear arms, including the mass confiscation of commonly owned firearms, it’s important to remember that those same firearms are regularly used by average Americans to defend their life, liberty, and property.
While some gun control advocates claim the Second Amendment is a dangerous historical relic, even going so far as to call for its repeal, they often overlook the fact that firearms are significantly more likely to be used for self-defense than in criminal activity
.In fact, according to a 2013 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost all national studies of defensive gun uses have found that firearms are used in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times every year in the United States.
Additionally, an independent analysis of the CDC’s own internal data on defensive gun uses indicates that firearms are used defensively about 1 million times a year, dwarfing the number of deaths and injuries attributable to their criminal use.
This year, we made a commitment to highlight just a few of the many defensive gun uses that occur every month. Just as in January, February, March, April, and May, June was full of instances of law-abiding citizens who relied
