Trump’s liberal daughter is having a heinous effect on public policy.

Ivanka Trump has influenced her father to support gun control measures like red flag laws, and now she is working to convince Congress to do the same.
According to an Axios report, Ivanka has reached out to Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) recently to discuss gun control measures. She remains active in the nationwide push to restrict the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
“She called Manchin and said she was trying to get a sense of what bills are out there,” a Manchin aide said to Axios. “She had him explain how they drafted the bill, where it stands and what changes needed to be made in order for it to pass.”
A White House official has confirmed that Princess Ivanka “has trusted relationships on both sides of the aisle and she is working in concert with the White House policy and legislative teams.”
Following the mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH earlier this month, Princess Ivanka posted an image on Instagram expressing her sympathy for gun control.
“Congress should enact Red Flag laws / Extreme Risk Protection Orders in every state, increase resources dedicated to mental health support nationwide and close background check loopholes,” she wrote.
She also took to Twitter to proselytize on behalf of gun control, using the tragedies to push for liberal public policy goals:

Unfortunately for supporters of the 2nd Amendment, the president is taking cues from Ivanka on this issue. President Trump is sounding like an elected Democrat official in his push for gun control.
“I think we can get something really good done,” the president said to reporters on Friday. “I think we can have some really meaningful background checks. We don’t want people that are mentally ill, people that are sick — we don’t want them having guns. Who does?”
“We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process,” Trump said last week in his televised address in the wake of the shootings. “That is why I have called for red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders.”
One silver lining in the enaction of red flag laws may be the fact that it could rob CNN anchor Christopher ‘Fredo’ Cuomo, who recently went on a violent rant toward a Trump supporter in a viral video clip, of his ability to own guns.
Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!

The Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem more than 2,500 years ago was one of the key moments in biblical history, representing God’s judgment but also his grace and mercy.
Now, archaeologists digging in modern-day Jerusalem say they have uncovered “clear” archaeological evidence affirming the account as described in 2 Kings 25.
Researchers from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte uncovered Babylonian-style arrowheads and layers of ash alongside lamps, potsherds and gold and silver jewelry they believe is either a tassel or earring.
The discovery is “clear evidence of the Babylonian conquest of the city” dating to 587/586 BC, according to a UNC Charlotte press release. Significantly, the pottery and lamps were found side-by-side with evidence of the Babylonian siege “represented by burnt wood and ashes,” the press release said.
The items were unearthed at the geographical location the siege would have occurred.
“For archaeologists, an ashen layer can mean a number of different things,” said UNC Charlotte professor of history Shimon Gibson. “It could be ashy deposits removed from ovens; or it could be localized burning of garbage. However, in this case, the combination of an ashy layer full of artifacts, mixed with arrowheads, and a very special ornament indicates some kind of devastation and destruction. Nobody abandons golden jewelry and nobody has arrowheads in their domestic refuse.”
The arrowheads were common and “known to be used by the Babylonian warriors,” he said.
“Together,” Gibson added, “this evidence points to the historical conquest of the city by Babylon because the only major destruction we have in Jerusalem for this period is the conquest of 587/586.”
The Babylonian conquest took place some four centuries after the reigns of King David and King Solomon and during a period when the people of Judah rejected God and worshipped false gods. The Babylonians burned the temple and took the people of Judah into captivity in Babylon, where they remained for 70 years.
The book of Lamentations records the prophet Jeremiah weeping over the destruction of Jerusalem but looking forward to a time when God would lift his hand of discipline: “The Lord will not cast off forever. … but though he cause grief, yet he will have compassion” (Lamentations 3:31-32). Jeremiah also rejoiced that God did not completely destroy the people of Judah. God was merciful (Lamentations 3:22-23).
In May Italian media reported Pope Francis would not meet with Lega (League) Party leader and Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini.
Salvini is a devout Catholic who regularly attends mass but Pope Francis allegedly won’t meet with him because of his hardliner stance on immigration.
Salvini wants to protect the homeland from an invasion of third world and mostly Muslim illegal migrants.
Pope Francis disagrees.
Pope Francis has previously met with Fidel Castro, Evo Morales and far left pro-abortion socialist Michael Moore.
This week Pope Francis again slammed Matteo Salvini comparing him to the Nazis.
This is completely unacceptable!
What a disgrace.
Church Militant reported:
Pope Francis is again slamming Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini over his “Italians first” platform, comparing the right-wing leader’s rhetoric to that of the Nazi regime.
“I am concerned because we hear speeches that resemble those of Hitler in 1934,” Francis told Italian newspaper La Stampa on Friday. “‘Us first. We … We …’ These are frightening thoughts.”
The Pope also denounced Salvini’s defense of Italy’s national sovereignty, calling it “an attitude of isolation.”

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said Thursday that Israel will deny entry to far-left freshman Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) over their support for the BDS movement.
“Israel has decided — we won’t enable the members of Congress to enter the country,” Hotovely told Israeli public radio, according to the Times of Israel.
“We won’t allow those who deny our right to exist in this world to enter Israel. In principle this is a very justified decision,” she added.
Hotovely’s announcement followed a Channel 12 report stating Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was weighing a proposal to block the “Squad” members from entering the Jewish state upon their arrival on Sunday.
In 2017, Israel enacted a law that prohibits a foreigner entry who “knowingly issues a public call for boycotting Israel.” The Interior and Strategic Affairs ministries have used the rule to deny anti-Israel activists entry to the country.
The decision comes after Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer said last month that Omar and Tlaib would be allowed in the country.
“Out of respect for the U.S. Congress and the great alliance between Israel and America, we would not deny entry to any member of Congress into Israel,” said Dermer.
President Donald Trump in recent days reportedly voiced disapproval to White House aides regarding Israel’s decision to allow the Democrat congresswomen in and took to social media Thursday to make his displeasure public.
“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds,” the president tweeted. “Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!”
In July, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution rejecting the BDS campaign targeting Israel — a measure Omar and Tlaib voted against.
The resolution, formally known as House Resolution 246, also called for additional security aid to Israel.
Omar previously introduced a measure countering the anti-BDS resolution which affirms Americans’ right to participate in boycotts. Tlaib is a co-sponsor of the bill.
The two lawmakers have sparked various political firestorms due to their repeated antisemitic remarks. Omar garnered fierce blowback for suggesting pro-Israel groups such as AIPAC bribe members of Congress to support the Jewish state. In 2012, Omar accused in a tweet that Israel had “hypnotized the world.” Earlier this year, Tlaib attacked pro-Israel senators, tweeting that they ”forgot what country they represent.”
UPDATE (12:07 P.M. EST): Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has issued a statement on the decision, saying, “The two-member congressional visitation plan shows that their intent is to hurt Israel and increase its unrest against it.”
