Ana Navarro Is Exposing The GOP’s Double Standard Of Letting Trump Share Classified Information Without Consequence

Ana Navarro was one of the most outspoken Republican critics of President Trump’s campaign and ultimate election. Navarro, like many prominent Latinxs in politics, spoke openly about their disdain for how Trump was demonizing and insulting the Latinx community from the very beginning with his announcement speech calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals. Since Trump’s victory, Navarro has offered constant sharply-worded criticisms of Trump and his administration. The latest Russia drama involving President Trump has not gone unnoticed by Navarro.

Republican political strategist Ana Navarro is calling out Congressional Republicans for not doing their job but rather toeing the party line.


The latest bombshell to come out of the White House is how President Trump invited Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, into the Oval Office with a photographer from a state-owned Russian news outlet. There is even speculation that the Russians, who are pretty gifted in espionage, could have slipped recording devices into the room with the U.S. president. No American press was allowed into the meeting, which has drawn its own ire from the American people and politicians. Since the meeting, it has been discovered that Trump shared highly classified information with the Russian representatives.

According to The Washington Post, the information was given to us by an ally with the long-held understanding that we would not be sharing this information with anyone else. The New York Times has further reported that the source of the information is Israel. The sharing of this information leaves the U.S. at risk of not being able to get necessary intel from the same source while also jeopardizing the lives of those involved with getting us the information in the first place. This prompted Navarro to call out all the GOP officials in Congress for not doing that job they are supposed to do that they would have quickly done if Clinton had made the same mistake: starting the impeachment process.

Despite denials from White House officials that Trump shared highly sensitive information, Trump himself owned up to it like only he can.


“I was in the room. It did not happen,” national security advisor H.R. McMaster told the press, according to The LA Times, before Trump’s early morning tweets.

Trump claims that he had the “absolute right” to share this information.


According to The Washington Post, a government official who knows the information said that Trump revealed “code-word” information, one of the highest classification levels in the U.S. government, with the Russian officials. This information is so sensitive that the same source told The Washington Post that it is information that we have yet to share with our own allies.

And Navarro’s Twitter shade didn’t end with just calling the GOP out for not doing their job. She straight up called them spineless.


People were living for Navarro’s Twitter attack.


That is really that only appropriate word for this level of political shade.

Her followers joined in on the trash talk.


S A V A G E !!

Others are hoping the that GOP will “rediscover their backbone.”


You know. It’s that thing that helps you stand up straight and connects to your skull. Yeah. That thing.

A few clever people started to give the unofficial spine search party a literary makeover.


#Genius

While others made mention of other body parts our representatives are missing.


Brutal.

The Spanish ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ Is Being Shared To Honor Hispanic Workers Fighting COVID-19

The Spanish ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ Is Being Shared To Honor Hispanic Workers Fighting COVID-19

There’s no denying that the world looks a lot different now than it did in 1947. And while the list of all of the positive changes that the decades stretching between now and then have done for the world and minorities, a recent campaign is also highlighting the ways in which our current president could take some notes on certain values the United States held dear during this time. Particularly ones that had been pressed for by one of our former presidents.

As part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Good Neighbor Policy” effort, he worked to promote positive and healthy relations between the United States in Latin American countries.

At the time Rooseveltaimed to ensure that the North, Central and South American countries avoided breaking under the influence of Axis countries during World War II. As part of this campaign, Roosevelt comissioned a Spanish and a Portuguese version of the U.S. national anthem. According to Time Magazine he also “recruited Hollywood to participate in this Good Neighbor Policy; Walt Disney went on goodwill tour of South America, hoping to find a new market for his films, and ended up producing two movies inspired by the trip: Saludos Amigos (1942) and The Three Caballeros (1944). The Brazilian star Carmen Miranda also got a boost, and her role in The Gang’s All Here made her even more famous in the U.S. And alongside these cross-cultural exchanges, the U.S. government decided it needed an anthem that could reach Spanish speakers.”

According to NPR, Clotilde Arias, wrote wrote the translation at the end of World War II, was born in the small Peruvian city, Iquitos in 1901 and moved to New York City to become a composer when she was 22-years-old. Her version of the anthem is now part of an exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

Now in an effort to support Latino communities affected by the coronavirus, the non-profit We Are All Human Foundation’s Hispanic Star campaign commissioned the a remake of the song.

Hoping to raise awareness of its Hispanic Recovery Plan and efforts to help to connect Hispanic small businesses and workers with resources during the pandemic, the campaign brought the old recording from obscurity.

For the song, the 2019 winner of the singing competition La Voz,  Jeidimar Rijos, performed “El Pendón Estrellado.” Or, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” 

The song has already received quite a bit of comments and support on Youtube.

Hang in there, fam. We can only get through this together.

A 9-Year-Old Girl Was Detained By Border Patrol On Her Way To School

A 9-year-old U.S. citizen was separated from her mother for 36 hours after agents at the border accused her of lying about her citizenship.

Like thousands of students in our country, Julia Isabel Amparo Medina’s daily commute requires her to cross the U.S. border.

The fourth-grade student attends Nicoloff Elementary School in San Ysidro, California and was in a carpool to school from her home in Tijuana when she ran into traffic. Medina, was commuting to school in a car driven by her mother’s friend Michelle Cardena, Cardena’s two children and her own older 14-year-old brother, Oscar. When the long line to get into the U.S. seemed to be jampacked upon their 4 a.m arrival, Cardenas instructed the kids in her car to walk to the border. She assured them that when they reached it, she would call them an Uber to get them the rest of the way to their school.

But Medina and her never made it across the border or to school that day.

According to the New York Times who talked to a Customs and Border Protection spokesman, two Amparo and her brother arrived at one of the San Ysidro port of entry facilities for pedestrians at 10:15 a.m. last Monday.

Upon their arrival, Amparo and her brother presented their U.S. passports to a CBP officer who soon accused her of being someone else. Note: Amparo’s passport image which was taken years before so she did not look exactly like herself. They also accused her brother of smuggling.

A CBP spokesperson has said that Amparo “provided inconsistent information during her inspection, and CBP officers took the 9-year-old into custody to perform due diligence in confirming her identity and citizenship.”

After CBP officers the confirmed that her brother was a U.S. citizen, he was permitted to enter the U.S while his sister stayed behind. It wasn’t until 6:30 pm on Tuesday, that Amparo was confirmed to be a U.S. citizen as well and was released and admitted to the U.S. to her mother.

Speaking to NBC7, Amparo said she was “scared” of her detention and that she was “sad because I didn’t have my mom or my brother. I was completely by myself.”

According to Amparo’s mother Thelma Galaxia, her daughter claims that she was told by an officer that she and her brother would be released if she admitted to being her cousin. Galaxia claims that officers also convinced her son Oscar to sign a document that Amparo was his cousin and not his sister.

When Galaxia was alerted that her children had been detained she contacted the Mexican consulate.

After being notified by the consulate that her daughter would be released at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. While the family felt relieved to be grateful to be reunited with their daughter, Galaxia says the separation should never have happened.

Over the weekend, Twitter was swift to express their outrage over the incident.

Some even expressed their dismay of having a similar situation happen to them.

Many are using the incident as an example of the racial issues plaguing so many U.S. citizens like Amparo.

So many of the comments included outside opinions from those who have yet to experience the direct targetting of ICE.

Over all, nearly everyone was quick to point out the saddest aspect of Amparo’s experience.
