It wasn't enough that #TheResistance shouted DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a private DC restaurant in the summer of 2018. It wasn't enough that they made it personal by converging on her home, yelling chants and playing audio clips of immigrant children allegedly being separated from their families at the border. Now, as Nielsen prepares to make her exit from the Trump administration, a group comprised of some familiar high-profile Resistance faces have taken it a step further by urging a hiring boycott. And not just against Nielsen, but against any Trump officials involved in the so-called "child separation" immigration policy.

Apparently this is the week 2020 presidential candidate Robert "Beto" O'Rourke has chosen to veer off even further to the left. On Wednesday, the former El Paso Congressman kissed Rev. Al Sharpton's ring while eagerly declaring (newfound) support for reparations. And on Thursday in Iowa, O'Rourke unequivocally compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler, taking a page straight out of the far left's 2020 "take back the White House" playbook.

It's "Al Sharpton Primary" week in New York City, and many of the 2020 Democratic candidates for president have lined up to kiss the reverend's ring at the annual National Action Network convention. One in particular is Beto O'Rourke, failed candidate for U.S. Senate. In a flip flop from his earlier positions on the reparations issue, the former El Paso Congressman told the crowd in attendance Wednesday he'd be on board with signing a proposed reparations bill:
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke appeared Wednesday to back off his initial opposition to slavery reparations, saying he would support a bill in Congress to study and consider the payments.

New York City Councilman Kalman Yeger (D) engaged in a series of tweets about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and the non-existence of Palestine last week. They generated such an uproar from The Usual Suspects that he has been tossed off an immigration committee at the insistence of Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio and influential anti-Semitic figure Linda Sarsour.

In the aftermath of the national outrage over the charges against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett being dropped, President Trump on Thursday called for a federal investigation into the case. The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) took issue with Trump's call, and Chairwoman Karen Bass (D-CA) blasted him in a statement:

Rep. Al Green (D-TX) has repeatedly made clear that there is nothing special counsel Robert Mueller could say that would prevent him from pursuing his goal of impeaching President Trump. He said it on the floor of the U.S. House early last month, and he reiterated that point Sunday in a tweet. The reason why? Green says Trump's alleged bigotry makes him unfit to serve in public office:
#MuellersReport did NOT investigate bigotry emanating from the Presidency harming our country. The findings do NOT negate the President’s bigotry. As long as bigotry influences the President’s policies, I will continue to seek his impeachment. #ImpeachmentIsNotDead

CNN's Jim Acosta is nothing if not predictable. In the middle of the Democratic party infighting caused by the anti-Semitic rhetoric we've heard from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in recent weeks, Acosta saw fit not to question the comments themselves, but instead President Trump's grim assessment of the Democratic party's relationship with the Jewish community.

Former VP Joe Biden hasn't announced yet whether or not he'll jump in as a 2020 presidential candidate, but a growing number of voices are giving him some unsolicited advice: Don't. About a month ago, we learned via the McClatchy news outlet about over two dozen Democratic strategists whose opinions on a possible Biden run weren't exactly glowing. "Not his time" was a common theme among those interviewed.

Remember when the mainstream media sneered at President Trump's claims on how people allegedly being tied up, bound, and duct-taped women at the border? These outlets included CNN and The Washington Post. As it turns out, Trump was right. The media outlet going on the record to correct the "fact checkers" on this issue is the New York Times, the queen bee of liberal media outlets, and certainly no friend of the president's.

A Wake County Superior Court judge in North Carolina has written a ruling so outlandish that state Democrats and Republicans, who are normally at each other's throats, have found themselves in rare agreement. The Raleigh News and Observer reports:
A judge has just thrown out two amendments to the North Carolina Constitution that voters approved in November.
