  • Trump refers to Ocasio-Cortez as just 'Cortez' because it 'takes too much time' to say full name

    President Trump on Wednesday said that he referred to Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as just “Cortez” because he doesn’t “have time to go with three different names.” Trump made the comment during a rally in Greenville, North Carolina, on Wednesday night while recalling a brief exchange he previously shared about the New York Democrat’s name. “They said, ‘That’s not her name, sir,’” Trump recalled, “I said, ‘no, no, I don’t have time to go with three different names. We’ll call her Cortez. Takes too much time.”
  • AOC Draws An Early 2020 Challenger! A Republican Immigrant From Jamaica

    While the race to be the next president pretty much begins on inauguration day in the modern era, congressional races tend to start a bit later. Yet with more than fifteen months to go, freshman congresswoman and “squad” member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already drawn a challenger who officially launched her campaign today. Shockingly, we’re not talking about a Democrat hoping to take AOC on in the primary, but a Republican. Scherie Murray came to America from Jamaica as a child, is a successful businesswoman and has been regularly involved in NY GOP politics. To call this a steep, uphill...

    The four congresswomen whom President Trump attacked over the weekend have weak approval ratings among a national audience, according to a new poll released Wednesday. Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) had the highest approval among the four, with a net positive rating of +4 in The Economist/YouGov Poll. She was one of only two Democrats included in the survey, along with Rep. Katie Porter (D-Calif.) with a positive approval rating. Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) all had net negative approval rating of -7, -8 and -9, respectively. But outside of Ocasio-Cortez, a large amount of...

    Center for Security Policy ^ | 02/21/2019 | J. Michael Waller
    Most people’s worldviews are heavily influenced during their formative years. Those influences, and their roots, are important to discern among our national leaders. The election of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is often seen as a celebration of diversity: An immigrant from the wasteland of Somalia, and one of the first two Muslim women, elected to the United States Congress. Omar personifies the Red-Green Axis: an ideological and political combination of Marxism-Leninism and Islamism. A look at Omar’s upbringing is a key to identifying her extremism, and where she wants to take the country that took in her and her family....

    House Democrats today rallied around a resolution to condemn President Donald Trump’s racist tweets against four high-profile freshmen congresswomen. But at least one of those congresswomen — Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — is about to drop her own resolution that may not go over so well with Democratic leadership. Her resolution would defend the pro-Palestinian boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. “We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our first amendment rights in regard to boycotting,” Omar told Al-Monitor. “And it is...

    Two decades ago, Omar M. Ahmad, then the chairman of the terror-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations, was reported to have told a gathering of Muslims that their purpose for being in America was to help make the Quran the highest authority in the nation. Omar and other CAIR leaders have denied he made the statement, but WND found the reporter and her editors stood by the story, refuting CAIR’s claim that they had retracted it.
  • GOP Senator Blasts ‘The Squad’: ‘They’re The Reason There Are Directions On A Shampoo Bottle’

    On Tuesday, the Louisiana Republican appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight to talk about the war between President Trump and what is now being called “The Squad” — Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. “I’m not sure the president should exchange playground insults with them. When you try to argue with a fool, that proves there are two. But the president decided to do so,” Kennedy said. “The simple fact of the matter is that the four congresswomen think that America was wicked in its...

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 17, 2019
    A move in the House to impeach President Trump for allegedly bigoted remarks is triggering a debate among constitutional law scholars, some of whom warn Democrats risk flouting the Constitution’s standard for impeachment and threatening free speech principles. Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas says he will force an impeachment vote Wednesday afternoon in response to Trump suggesting four non-white Democratic congresswomen should “go back” to their “original” countries. The Constitution says a president may be impeached for “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” But Green said Monday he would force the vote in response to Trump's "bigotry"...

    Support for U.S. President Donald Trump increased slightly among Republicans after he lashed out on Twitter over the weekend in a racially charged attack on four minority Democratic congresswomen, a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll shows. The national survey, conducted on Monday and Tuesday after Trump told the lawmakers they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” showed his net approval among members of his Republican Party rose by 5 percentage points to 72%, compared with a similar poll that ran last week. Trump, who is seeking re-election next year, has...

    The Democratic Party bears little resemblance to the themes Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton embraced in the 2008 primaries. The parameters of marriage — “between a man and woman,” in Obama’s words — have now transmogrified beyond gay civil unions to legal gay marriage to transgendered fixations. Obama once protested that he was no king who could open the border and grant amnesties by fiat. Yet his view of immigration has metamorphosed well beyond Dreamers into Democratic candidates going into Mexico to escort aliens unlawfully into our country — and 500 sanctuary jurisdictions in which federal immigration law is all...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden unveiled a plan on Monday to bolster ObamaCare by protecting people with pre-existing conditions, ​adding a “public option” like Medicare and using tax credits to lower premiums. With the announcement, the former vice president set himself apart from other Democratic candidates who supported “Medicare for all,” including Sens. Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris. ​”I understand the appeal of Medicare for All,” Biden said in a video posted ​Monday. “But folks supporting it should be clear that it means getting rid of Obamacare. And I’m not for that.”

    In the new nation that Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota seeks to create, the "capitalist system" will be left behind in pursuit of a "fair and just economy" where the federal government guarantees everybody jobs, housing, health care and free abortions. How can we know this? She has declared it in writing. Omar's campaign website includes a section called "Ilhan's Vision." The agenda it presents contradicts foundational American principles -- particularly the rights to life and property -- that were spelt out in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The declaration says that "all men are created equal"...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a doozy of a response.  She declared that the U.S. "belongs" to "everyone," including illegal aliens.  She couched it all in the smarmy language of addressing all the children of America.  Here's a short clip: Rep. @AOC: "The first note that I want to tell children across this country is that no matter what the president says, this country belongs to you.
