Someone should ask conservatives: Are the Aurora victims' moms angels too?

Or will God only recruit those whose children are killed by undocumented immigrants?
The killer in Aurora was a US Citizen.

I hear some talk about legislation to curb national emergencies

I support that, but after we milk it in 2021 if a Democrat wins the Presidency.
You can't just let Trump have all the fun.

Ro Khanna (D-CA) tweets praise of Tucker Carlson article on The American Conservative

The first reaction for someone justifying what Khanna did may be that Carlson's article is about anti-interventonism.
But Tucker Carlson supported the invasion of the Iraq war.

There goes the reputation of Meredith Watson (Second Fairfax accuser)

Meredith Watson detained a man against his will and threatened to kill herself, according to a man who was granted his wish of an order of protection against her in 2008.

"The man sought and received a peace order against Meredith Watson in July 2008, the records show. A peace order falls under the “umbrella term” of a restraining order in the state of Maryland, University of Maryland law professor Leigh Goodmark said. It is applied to situations in which a person may need to ask for distance from someone who isn't their spouse or live-in partner, he said."
