We know that the Democratic Party is filled with ironic hypocrites but the 2020 presidential candidates are taking the cake this weekend. More than 11,000 people flocked to a steak fry at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday to hear from the 17 candidates vying for the Democratic nomination, CBS News reported.

The event was put on by the Polk County Democrats and included more than 10,500 hamburgers and 1,000 vegan burgers. Rather ironic considering some of these candidates – like Sen. Kamala Harris and Andrew Yang – have made the case that meat consumption adds to our nations greenhouse emissions and climate change problem.

The candidates even showed off their grilling kills.

Republicans blasted the Democrats for their hypocrisy:

Maybe next year the Polk County Democrats will consider having a “Tofu Fry.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Sunday had a call with President Donald Trump about gun control legislation. According to a statement from Democratic leadership, universal background checks are a non negotiable that must be included in any proposal Trump moves forward with. Specifically, Democrats want Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to bring the legislation to a floor for a vote.

“200 days ago, the Democratic House took decisive action to end the gun violence epidemic in America by passing H.R. 8 and H.R. 1112: bipartisan, commonsense legislation to expand background checks, which is supported by more than 90 percent of the American people. With the backing of the American people, we continue to call on Senator McConnell to ‘Give Us A Vote!’

“Yet, for 200 days, Senator McConnell has refused to give these bipartisan bills a vote on the Senate Floor, again and again putting his own political survival before the survival of our children. Every day that Senator McConnell blocks our House-passed, life-saving bills, an average of 100 people – including 47 children and teenagers – die from senseless gun violence. Some 20,000 have died since the House took action on February 27th.

“This morning, we made it clear to the President that any proposal he endorses that does not include the House-passed universal background checks legislation will not get the job done, as dangerous loopholes will still exist and people who shouldn’t have guns will still have access. For instance, someone prohibited from possessing a gun under an Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) law could still obtain a firearm by exploiting the gun show and online loopholes that H.R. 8 would close. We know that to save as many lives as possible, the Senate must pass this bill and the President must sign it. We even promised the President that if he endorses this legislation and gets Senator McConnell to act on what the House has passed, we would both join him for a historic signing ceremony at the Rose Garden.

“Congressional Democrats will continue to join with law enforcement, survivors, students and parents, health care providers, mayors and public health officials across the nation to accelerate a relentless drumbeat of action to force Senator McConnell to pass our background checks bills. We will not stop until these bills are passed and our children’s lives are safe. We call upon Senator McConnell to ‘Give Us a Vote!’

McConnell has made it clear that he wouldn’t bring any gun control proposals to the floor for a vote if President Trump has vowed to veto the bill.

“My members know the very simple fact that to make a law you have to have a presidential signature. They are working on coming up with a proposal that the president will sign,” McConnell said last week.

Conservative, Trump-supporting Miss Michigan, Kathy Zhu, was stripped of her crown on Thursday. According to the Miss World America (MWA) pageant, Zhu had her title revoked because her “social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content.”

Zhu shared the letter she received from the organization on Twitter:

Zhu responded to the letter, addressing the so-called “inappropriate” tweets.

“A muslim woman tried to FORCIBLY put a hijab on my head without my permission. I tweeted about it on my social media account, and it got the attention of the media,” Zhu said. “Almost everyone was supportive of me refusing to be put in that situation. Are the people in the MWA implying that they advocate for the punishment of women who refuse to wear a hijab?”

According to the Detroit Free Press, the Muslim Student Association was celebrating World Hijab Day on campus. That’s when the incident took place and she followed up with her experiences on Twitter:

There is a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus.

So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?

Zhu responded to someone, reminding them that women in the Middle East are frequently punished and stoned for refusing to wear a hijab.

“I said that it was (getting women used to) being oppressed because there are so many women in Middle Eastern countries that are being punished and stoned for refusing to wear a hijab,” Zhu told the Free Press. “Nobody is talking about that in the West because all they see is everyone being at peace, but that is the beauty of America.”

The other tweet the organization took issue with had to do with black-on-black crime:

Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community before blaming others.

Zhu shared screen captures of her conversation with Michigan’s state director about what took place.

This is the epitome of hypocrisy. What happened to being tolerant of other people’s personal beliefs? Zhu has a right to her own personal beliefs, including refusing to wear a hijab. That’s not being intolerant. That’s her respecting her own personal beliefs and convictions. But apparently those don’t matter because she’s conservative and refuses to give into the left’s attempts at pushing her into “cultural appreciation.”

Congrats, Miss World America, you’re okay with protecting only certain points of view. So much for being tolerant and inclusive.

Iran announced on Sunday they were hours away from breaching another aspect of the 2015 nuclear deal that was established. The country is planning to increase its amount of uranium enrichment, putting them over the cap established cap. This puts Iran closer to establishing a nuclear bomb, although they still have a ways to go, the New York Times reported.

The move is part of a bigger plan. According to Deputy Foreign Minister, Abbas Araghchi, Iran will continue to increase accord limits over 60-day intervals until their country receives sanction relief.

From the Times:

In violating the limits on uranium enrichment, Tehran still remains far from producing a nuclear weapon. It would take a major production surge, and enrichment to far higher levels, for Iran to develop a bomb’s worth of highly enriched uranium, experts say. It would take even longer to manufacture that material into a nuclear weapon.

But for Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, who signaled in May that he would order the country’s engineers to cross both thresholds if Europe did not compensate Iran for American sanctions, the breach of the enrichment limit would be a watershed. He is betting that the United States will back away from crushing sanctions or that he can split European nations from the Trump administration, which the Europeans blame for setting off the crisis.

If he is wrong, the prospect of military confrontation lurks over each escalation.

French President Emmanuel Macron asked Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to decide by July 15th if a new deal could take place. Rouhani agreed but said “lifting all sanctions can be the beginning of a move between Iran and the six major powers.”

The Trump administration has placed pressure on Rouhani to come to the table to make another agreement, but one that places even more restrictions on Iran. President Trump made the decision in 2018 to remove the United States from the Iran nuclear deal, although some European countries are still part of the pact. Instead of staying with the agreement, Trump has slapped additional sanctions against Iran. The move came after Iran shot down an American drone.

President Donald Trump delivered a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition on Saturday. During his remarks he took the opportunity to mock Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the Congresswoman who believes people hold a dual allegiance to the United States and Israel if they are pro-Israel.

“And a special thanks to Rep. Omar of Minnesota. Oh, oh — oh, I forgot. She doesn’t like Israel, I forgot. I’m so sorry. Oh,” Trump mocks. “No she doesn’t like Israel, does she?”

Of course, Democrats were quick to slam Trump for his comments.

For some reason, Democrats seem to think that if anyone criticizes Rep. Omar that they’re suddenly advocating for violence against her. They seem to think Trump saying Omar doesn’t like Israel is condemning what death threats she received on Friday. But it doesn’t.

It is possible to slam Omar for her anti-Semitic tropes. It is possible to condone someone sending her death threats because they disagree with her policies.

Why is it so hard for Democrats to see that not everything is as black and white as they like to make it?
