Hillary Clinton and “fauxcahontas” Elizabeth Warren made a speech today bashing Donald Trump, his values and his plans for this nation. They claim he has made no statements about how he plans to govern this nation if he is elected President. Hmmmmm…just this month Great America PAC released an ad about how he would handle Gun Control and Terrorism. It seems pretty clear to The Wells Report how Donald Trump would handle these very important issues.
We’re available to make notes for Clinton and Warren if they need the help:
“I’ve cried like you have no idea,” the man told Univision News anchor Maria Elena Salinas. “But the thing that makes me want to tell the truth is that he didn’t do it for terrorism. In my opinion he did it for revenge.”
The man, who Univision (Fusion’s parent company) is calling “Miguel,” said that he met Mateen on the gay dating app Grindr. He claimed the two met 15 to 20 times over two months before the relationship ended last December, when Miguel moved away from Orlando.
Miguel described their relationship as “friends with benefits,” and said that Mateen was “100 percent” gay, Univision reported. He said he was shocked to hear Mateen was the shooter, and described him as “affectionate” and “sweet.” Mateen loved to be cuddled, Miguel added.
He also told Univision that Mateen’s rage about Puerto Rican gay men might have stemmed from a sexual incident in which Mateen had sex with two Puerto Rican men, one of whom later revealed that he was HIV positive.
“He adored Latinos, gay Latinos, with brown skin—but he felt rejected,” Miguel said. “He felt used by them—there were moments in the Pulse nightclub that made him feel really bad. Guys used him. That really affected him.”
Mateen was “terrified” of being HIV positive, Miguel said.
“When I asked him what he was going to do now, his answer was ‘I’m going to make them pay for what they did to me,’” he added.
The FBI confirmed to Univision that they have interviewed the man.
Fusion has not been able to independently confirm Miguel’s statements.
The attack, which took place during the gay club Pulse’s Latino night, was the worst mass shooting in modern American history.
This isn’t the first time someone has suggested Mateen was gay. Several men have previously told reporters that they remembered seeing Mateen on gay dating apps and that he had been seen on multiple occasions at Pulse nightclub.
An ex-wife of Mateen, Sitora Yusufiy, has also speculated that the shooter may have been gay. “He might have been homosexual himself and lived that lifestyle but could never ever come clean about it because of the standards of his father, because of the obligation to be a perfect son,” she told Time.
Miguel’s statements further complicate the debate over Mateen’s motivations in the Orlando attack, which has consumed the media and national politics over the last week and a half.
It’s still unclear whether Mateen’s rampage was inspired by Islamic extremism, homophobia, a personal desire for revenge, or some combination of the three.
But Miguel’s story is a shocking twist and—if believed—adds an important new layer to our understanding of the man behind the murders.
The leader of last week’s 15-hour Senate filibuster to force action on guns said Monday that Democrats need to make gun control an “integral” part of their national security policy as they try to build a political movement to rival the National Rifle Association.
The message, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said in an interview with Washington Post reporters, should be that Republicans are partially culpable for attacks such as the Orlando nightclub shooting.
“We’ve got to make this clear, constant case that Republicans have decided to sell weapons to ISIS,” Murphy said, using an alternative term for the Islamic State militant group. “That’s what they’ve decided to do. ISIS has decided that the assault weapon is the new airplane, and Republicans, in refusing to close the terror gap, refusing to pass bans on assault weapons, are allowing these weapons to get in the hands of potential lone-wolf attackers. We’ve got to make this connection and make it in very stark terms.”
Murphy made his comments just hours before the Senate was set to vote on four gun-related amendments to a pending appropriations bill — two proposed by Democrats, two proposed by Republicans — that were negotiated to resolve the Democratic filibuster.
So many of us want to understand why a young man born in New York to parents from Afghanistan and reared in Florida would turn into modern America’s deadliest mass gunman.
Omar Mateen, 29, did the unthinkable June 12 when he opened fire with an assault-style rifle inside a crowded Orlando, Fla., gay bar, killing 49 innocent people, wounding 53 and terrorizing a nation.
Does his motivation matter? Only if we want to grasp what led him to that bloody Sunday morning and, in full diligence and optimism, prevent another such outcome. As we have written, the FBI must lead by learning and adapting to evolving terror threats, hopefully finding a way to get in front of events, even as the task verges on boundless.
Based on our admittedly incomplete picture so far, it’s difficult to understand why members of President Barack Obama’s administration would go so far as to censor aspects of Mateen’s 911 calls made during the hours-long standoff. Thankfully, the Justice Department came around later Monday after what they called this “unnecessary distraction,” entirely self-inflicted.
These recordings do not tell an entire story, but taken together each new element continues our progress toward the whole.
The Conservative Moment of Truth by Jon-David Wells—American
And so….The more time passes, the more I see what I had feared for all these years. “The Republican Party,” (in quotes as it is but a mere shadow of its former self,) seems focused on surreptitiously handing the 44th Presidency of the United States to Hillary Clinton.
Apparently, the “Republicans” believe that any Pol will do….Even one who incredibly hates this country more than her predecessor.
And why? With a Congressional approval rating not reaching double-digits, and the polls indicating that a clear majority of Americans feel betrayed by their Party, these fading members of the political class seem mindlessly focused on saving a “good ol’ boy” system. A way of political life most of the American People are are angrily abandoning….Disillusioned former constituents taking the embarrassing walk of shame, reserved only for the truly screwed.
Since the Reagan Revolution, Republicans have reveled in the clear and demonstrated superiority of the Conservative ideology, while the “Republican Party” has been carefully dismantling the legacy of the most successful age of prosperity in our nation’s history. This never more obvious than when Democrat lies of “Trickle Down Failure” went totally unchallenged.
It seems more true with each passing day that the notion that “Republicanism is the best expression of the Conservative Ideology” is nothing more than a highlighted selling point on the slick 4-color sales brochure thrust at us from the sweaty hand of an elaborate swindler.
Like one of the most patriotic Americans since Reagan; Ted Cruz, Conservatives have been wholly abandoned by the “Republican Party.”
Even more disturbing, these Democrat-enabling political operatives are clinging to the greasy tools of the film-flam artists they are beginning to resemble….
….Condemnation with faint praise….Subtle movement of the goal posts….Silence where sound is required….Sound where silence is required….The right hand unconvincingly “not knowing” what the left is doing….Standing still when clear action is required.
“Republicans” why not clearly state your (shaky) principles? Is that too American for you?
And so I support Trump, because I will not witness the traitorous dissolution of the greatest nation ever given to man by God, while carrying the stain of participating in its demise.
I will continue to broadcast the Truth until President Clinton’s Ministry of Public Thought declares me unworthy of airtime.
I will assist in the building the American Conservative Party until President Clinton’s IRS destroys me financially.
I will fight to remain American until President Clinton’s committed androids first take my weapons and then obliterate me when I pick up a rock….
I will pray that these “Republicans” find a better political opportunity in supporting this country than abandoning it. Because clearly, a “Republican Party” without Conservatism cares only about its next political opportunity.
I have long said that The United States of America is President Obama proof. And as the years have passed, I have been proven correct.
I am not sure, however that Our Beloved Nation is Treacherous “Republican Party” Proof.
He stopped by The Wells Report to discuss the Orlando shooting, homegrown terror and how we as Americans can tell the difference between peaceful Muslims and Muslims who have the potential to radicalize.
Jon-David took a second for a quick sit down with Dallas Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association’s Dave Naber who gave him the low down on tomorrow’s Active Shooter Preparedness Seminar. Check out the conversation here:
If you can’t make the seminar, Dave Naber wants you to know, “Even thought this seminar is through the Dallas Citizens Police Academy Alumni, all the Police Depts in the DFW area have Citizens Academy available for their citizens to join. We need to support our local and federal law enforcement agencies now more than ever.”
