Why I am Crossing Party Lines and Voting for Tiffany Jones in Nevada

Pesach Lattin

I’ve been a lifelong Democrat. In fact, I’m on a dozen “most influential” lists in politics, business and the such, and my twitter following is in the tens of thousands. I will be most likely this year voting for a democrat in every single race except one: a small race here in Nevada for State Senate District 9, where I live.

Tiffany Jones is a small business owner with an amazing bakery in the area. When she ran in 2016, I actually trolled her social media accounts – and joked about some of her photos and that she “needed to stick to baking.” I was not happy about Trump running, and since she was GOP, I assumed she was fully into the whole #maga agenda.

Instead of attacking me, after the election she actually reached out to me and invited me to meet her, and learn her positions.

She explained to me what she stands for: helping small businesses in Nevada and how she really wants to work with both democrats and republicans in Nevada to grow our economy and help our local community. We both have kids, so things like safety in the area, events and the parks being clean and repaired were both extremely important.

What I found most interesting about her was her honesty: She made it clear she wasn’t getting support of some traditionally Republican organizations because even though she supported some of their causes, she had her own opinions and solutions. She wasn’t knee-jerk about anything.

That interested me, because I’m one of the people who are very much aware that national solutions don’t always work locally.

Her honesty really caught me off guard, especially since I was really nasty to her. She didn’t take it personally, and since then has engaged me over and over again despite us being different politically on some issues.

I don’t know Melanie Scheible, the young lady running against her. However, I need to be honest that am deeply disturbed that she graduated college two years ago, then had her first job at the Clark County District Attorney’s Office – and with less than one year working for the People of Las Vegas, decided to run for a seat.  That doesn’t sit well with me, and while I am sure she’s an awesome person personally – I wish she would have worked for more than 2 years total in life before trying to run for office.

Additionally, Melanie’s attack ads have been strange: in one case she attacked Tiffany Jones for being in “the pockets” of big pharma, while taking money from the largest Pharma PAC in Nevada. With opioid additions being a serious issue in Nevada, this should concern everyone why she is saying one thing, and doing another.

In another mailing, her ads attack Tiffany Jones for positions she is not taking – including a BLATANT LIE, saying Tiffany Jones has a A+ with the NRA. In fact, despite being a gun owner, and a competitive shooter, Jones has a D with the NRA because she isn’t a knee jerk politician.  She really does think for herself and doesn’t follow the party line when it isn’t what is better for her community.

I’ll be honest, if I didn’t get to know Tiffany Jones personally, I might have never cared to find more about her. I probably wouldn’t even vote for this seat.

Tiffany Jones has a business in our area, she has a family she is raising in the area, and has a stake in the game to make our community better. She is also a proud Filipino, and would be the first Filipina in State Office, representing a growing part of our community.

Melanie Scheible is a tourist with no business, no family, no connections to our areas and schools — and just following the party line.  She seems like a nice person, but honestly, I know nothing about her: all her ads seem to be about how she doesn’t like Tiffany Jones, and hasn’t really presented any single concrete ideas how to help the families in Mountain’s Edge. She’s also never reached out to me, despite almost every other Democratic politician in the area sending me invites to their events. That’s kinda strange since I’ve lived here for years and very, very involved in my community. Most small business owners here know me personally.

This is why I am personally endorsing Tiffany Jones.

Lucy Parsons Project Racists Protest Pakistanian Middle Eastern Cafe in San Fransisco

Looks like the GOP can’t help funding fake “progressive” organizations under the guise of fighting for black rights. What’s the new “cause?” A half dozen white women have been daily protesting a local Middle Eastern Cafe owned by a Manny Yekutiel, a man of Pakistani Jewish Descent whose family fled persecution in Pakistan.

Manny Yekutiel opened his eponymous Manny’s in November, calling the Middle Eastern cafe and restaurant in downtown San Francisco a “civic social gathering space.” His goal for the Mission District eatery was “to create a central, accessible and affordable place to go to become a better informed and more involved citizen,” he told the San Francisco Examiner.

Manny’s has earned praise for hosting talks with speakers on issues ranging from Black Lives Matter to urban sustainability.

But Yekutiel, who is Jewish, is being protested weekly, accused of espousing “racist, Zionist, pro-Israel ideals.” His café has been vandalized and painted with anti-Semitic and anti-Israel slogans over and over again — mainly by White racists.

The only allegation seemingly against him is that he is Jewish. Yekutiel has even said he does not support everything the Israeli government does and disagrees with its treatment of the Palestinians — and has many friends who are Palestinian.

Yekutiel reportedly has met nearly all the requirements of United to Save the Mission, a coalition of more than a dozen neighborhood nonprofits and activist groups. They include bilingual signage and staff, moderate prices (a cup of coffee is $1.75) and food prepared by a nonprofit employing homeless, formerly incarcerated and low-income community members, who earn all the food revenue. Community groups can use the space for free.

Trump Promotes “Hitler Lover” Buchanan

Despite claiming 20 years ago that Pat Buchanan was a “Hitler Lover,” the President is now quoting him in tweets.

Last week, Buchanan posted an article on the anti-immigration site Vdare.com that implored Trump to declare a national emergency on the southern border, “because mass migration from the global South, not climate change, is the real existential crisis of the West.” Trump has publicly considered such a declaration as a way to go around Congress in order to secure funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

On Sunday, the president quoted a portion of Buchanan’s post in a pair of tweets. The first said, “‘The Trump portrait of an unsustainable Border Crisis is dead on,'” and then listed a number of immigration-related crime statistics. Buchanan did not cite the source of the data, but the context indicated it was from the Trump administration.

In 1999, Trump called Buchanan a “Hitler lover” and said it was “incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.” Buchanan, who has often been accused of expressing racist and anti-Semitic views, at the time was seeking the Reform Party’s nomination for president.

“Look, he’s a Hitler lover,” Trump said on “Meet the Press” in October 1999. “I guess he’s an anti-Semite. He doesn’t like the blacks. He doesn’t like the gays. It’s just incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.”

Every Border Congressperson Opposes Trump Wall

Despite being both republicans and democrats, they have one thing in common: they are completely against a border wall in their district and say no one living there wants it.

Congressman Vincente Gonzalez, a democrat, says he’s not against border security at all.

“I think we can deal with Central American migration in a humane way, have humanitarian centers, even have asylum hearings there. We have the knowhow and we have the experience because we have been doing it here in our southern border. I think we should share that with them and try to attack the problem further south,” said Gonzalez.

Congressman Gonzalez says there needs to be an immigration bill to take care of the immigrants who are in the United States now and set up temporary migrant worker programs like the country has done in the past.

During a private dinner with Mr. Trump last year, the congressman suggested a “virtual border wall,” one that would use technology and existing military surveillance equipment currently not in use. But Mr. Trump wasn’t interested in non-physical alternatives, Gonzalez said.

The USA TODAY Network asked the 534 members of the House and Senate whether they support the $1.6 billion down payment approved by the House and found fewer than 25% of Republicans willing to stand up for the plan publicly.
