  • Bernie Tells Squad: ‘Electing Biden Is Not the End-All, It Is the Beginning’

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) spoke to the far-left members of the “Squad” in a virtual roundtable discussion on Friday, emphasizing that electing Joe Biden (D) would not be the “end-all” but only the “beginning” of their plans to push their radical agenda, ultimately making Biden the “most progressive president since FDR.” Sanders previewed his vision for the Democrat Party under a Biden presidency with four members of the “Squad” — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). “But we understand that electing Biden is not the end-all. It is the beginning,” the Vermont...
  • Hmm, Why Did Gretchen Whitmer Display a Sign That's Viewed as a Call to Assassinate Trump?

    10/18/2020 3:12:48 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 85 replies ^ | October 18, 2020 | Bronson Stocking
    Source: Twitter/ScreenshotGov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) sure is hypocritical, even for a politician. Just weeks after a deadly ricen poisoning was mailed to President Trump, Whitmer prominently displayed an "8645" sign in the background of the camera during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." When the term "86" is applied to a person it often carries the meaning of killing the individual.   The left is violent and murderous enough without further stoking by the governor. Antifa, ginned up by Democrats, routinely attacks cops and Trump supporters, killing one recently in Portland. Joe Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) talk about...
  • Squad member Omar in primary spotlight as 5 states hold contests Tuesday (Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont, Wisconsin, Georgia)

    Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont and Wisconsin hold primaries on Tuesday, with a Georgia holding a Republican primary runoff in the state’s 14th Congressional District. But the race grabbing the most national attention is in Minnesota, where Rep. Ilhan Omar - known from coast to coast as one of the four members of the group of progressive first-term congresswomen of color known as “The Squad” -- is facing a Democratic primary challenge from a candidate who’s vastly outraised the incumbent. The firebrand freshman lawmaker quickly became a nationally known politician two years ago as one of the first Muslim women elected to...

    Four House Democrats have written to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calling on the United States to cut assistance to Israel should it proceed to apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, JTA reported on Monday. The letter was initiated by Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Pramila Jayapal of Washington, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Betty McCollum of Minnesota. The letter to Pompeo is circulating among Democrats in a bid to add signatures. “Should the Israeli government move forward with the planned annexation with this administration’s acquiescence, we will work to ensure non-recognition as well as pursue conditions on...
  • The Squad in the spotlight: AOC, progressive peers face primary challenges of their own

    Reuters via Yahoo ^ | 6/12/20 | Joseph Ax, Susan Cornwell
    (Reuters) - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stunning upset over a member of the Democratic congressional leadership in 2018 made her a household name and inspired similar insurgent campaigns around the United States. Now the democratic socialist from New York City, best known by her initials AOC, must survive her own challenge from within the party in a June 23 primary election. Two other members of "the Squad" – four women of color who, in their first terms, have become the face of the U.S. House of Representatives' liberal wing – also face primary challengers. Like Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan's Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota's Ilhan...

    Pic of Rashida not for the faint of heart. In the latest volley, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who has endorsed Sanders, brought up Biden's treatment of Anita Hill while he was the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman during the 1991 confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment and testified before the committee. Biden has had to apologize on the campaign trail for his handling of the proceedings. "Q: Who silenced Anita Hill when she was trying to speak out about Clarence Thomas?" Tlaib tweeted. "A: Joe Biden," she said. …..

    US Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib retweeted a claim that “Israeli settlers” had “kidnapped and executed” a Palestinian boy. In fact the boy was found by Israeli emergency services dead in a cistern on Saturday morning after going missing on Friday. Nevertheless, some Palestinian social media accounts incited against Israel, with small clashes resulting in East Jerusalem. A Twitter account called “Real Seif Bitar” tweeted that the boy had been kidnapped and executed and showed a video of the boy’s body being found by emergency services. The tweet claimed that the boy was kidnapped by “Israeli settlers, assaulted and thrown in a...

    DAVENPORT, Iowa - Rep. Rashida Tlaib said socialist Bernie Sanders made her feel normal for being frustrated with the country's political climate. "He makes me feel - and many of you know what I mean by this - he makes me feel less insane," the Michigan Democrat said in Davenport, Iowa, on Saturday, referring to gripes, for example, with the country's healthcare system. She added, "We're not insane folks. We're actually real. We're humanists." **SNIP** Tlaib is accompanying Sanders on his three-day swing of the first-in-the-nation state. The pair will appear at a "Green New Deal" rally on Sunday in...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar accused President Trump of trying to create a "distraction" by killing Gen. Qassim Soleimani in an attempt to ignite a war with Iran. "So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction?" the Minnesota Democrat said Thursday on Twitter. "Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will."

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan appeared giddy on her walk to the House floor to cast her vote to impeach President Trump despite Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s calls for a “somber” vote. The “squad” member posted a video of the moments before she was set to vote for impeachment saying, “Hey everyone. I am on my way to the United States House floor to impeach Trump. On behalf of my incredible district. Thirteenth district strong. Let’s do this.” The congresswoman also posted a photograph of herself and Rep. Maxine Waters of California beaming with the caption: "MOOD." Tlaib’s jolly video stood...

    Al Arabiya English's Abdulla Almanai reports that U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was recruited by a foreign government, passed sensitive information that was relayed to Iran, and received funding by a foreign government, quoting a sworn deposition by a Canadian businessman in a Florida court. In video link testimony from Toronto, Canada to a Florida District Court on October 23, Kuwaiti-born Alan Bender claims to have ties with governments and royal officials across the Middle East including Qatar. He says he met Qatar’s Secretary to the Emir for Security Affairs Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad and two other senior Qatari...

    US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar paid her political consultant and lover almost $147,000 more for services than had previously been known, according to reports. The payments were in addition to hundreds of thousands of dollars she gave to the company which had already been reported. Omar's campaign funneled $146,713 into finance chief Tim Mynett's consulting firm, 'The E Street Group' for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and video production, records show, reports the New York Post.
  • Ocasio-Cortez forgets her talking points, gets tongue-tied, claims, '…so much going on in my mind'

    Apparently, the occasionally operating cortex kicked in yesterday, and the experience of mental activity temporarily threw Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez off her memorized talking points. She was in the midst of lecturing a crowd of Bernie-supporters, pacing around the stage with a hand-held microphone, engaging the crowd the way a fifth-grade teacher might lead along the children she is indoctrinating. But as she was building up to some sort of prepared punchline, she said, "Here's the deal" and then drew a blank. She actually used the expression "here's the deal" three times before coming up with the payoff.

    Democratic congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, three of the most influential voices among young progressive liberals, will all reportedly endorse Senator Bernie Sanders in his 2020 bid for presidency. In an article published on Tuesday evening, The Washington Post reported that two unnamed sources with knowledge of the plan said Ocasio-Cortez, 30, will join Sanders, 78, at a campaign rally on Saturday to announce the surprise endorsement. During the fourth Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, Sanders revealed that a "special guest" would join him in New York. "We're looking forward to Saturday," Corbin Trent, a spokesperson for...

    US Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested Monday that the press and her political foes are partly to blame for the demise of her marriage. “Ilhan and Ahmed have been the object of speculation and innuendo from political opponents and the media,” according to a statement from her lawyer, referring to the Minnesota congresswoman and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, and which the rep said he was issuing “on behalf” of Omar. “This has taken a significant toll on Ilhan, Ahmed, and their three children. “As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family,” the statement added.

    In October, President Donald Trump will be visiting the Minneapolis district being represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. And while beset with marital problems, rumors of affairs and claims she may have married her brother to skirt immigration laws, Omar took time to notice. On Thursday, the Trump 2020 campaign announced a Keep America Great rally at the 20,000 seat Target Center in Minneapolis on October 10. “Minnesota is booming thanks to President Trump and jobs are coming back to the state,” Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said in a release. “Since President...

    “We should do what any other country does, by dealing with this situation in a serious way,” Rep. Omar insisted at a public meeting in Minnesota– but the Somalia-born ‘Squad’ member was not advocating building a wall or adopting a robust policy of turning illegal migrants away, as sovereignist governments in Hungary and Italy have done, drastically reducing not only migrant numbers, but also migrant deaths. Instead, she demanded an outside entity take control of the situation, demanding: “[W]e have to bring in the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees – an agency that has the expertise and the training...

    Ilhan Omar’s alleged affair with a married man in her employ is not strictly her personal business or guaranteed airtight protection under the claim of it being her “private life”. It is instead the business of every American. Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar obviously thinks that being a “woman of color” grants her the privilege of keeping her “personal life” off the public radar screen—a status that doesn’t exist for American politicians, ‘women of color’ or not. Activist politicians of our day work with social media to create and control their own digital image. In the case of active “Squad”...

    Radical Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was denied access to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) contracted facility earlier this month after she failed to request a tour. Tlaib then created a public relations spectacle, claiming she was unfairly barred despite showing up to the facility without notice.Earlier this month, Tlaib stormed the Calhoun County jail in Michigan with two members of her staff, two immigration attorneys, and a reported group of eight or nine people. Calhoun County jail has contracts with ICE.Tlaib tweeted that she was “denied access to tour the facility,” and received nearly 12,000 “likes” on Twitter.“If they...
