    Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) announced on New Year’s Eve that she tested positive for coronavirus, despite being fully vaccinated and boosted. “Today, I received a positive, breakthrough COVID-19 test result. Thankfully, my symptoms are mild & I’m grateful to be fully vaccinated & boosted,” the congresswoman and “squad” member tweeted. “I’m currently isolating & following all health protocols.” [cut] In her statement, Pressley touted the vaccines as life-saving and encouraged her followers to “do their part by getting vaccinated, boosted and masking up.” “Vaccines save lives. With this unprecedented pandemic continuing to rage, I am deeply grateful for the scientists,...
  • The DOJ is Told to Review Federal Charges for Kyle Rittenhouse After Jury Found Him ‘Not Guilty’ on All Counts

    The persecution of Kyle Rittenhouse continues. Even after a jury of his peers found the 18-year-old “not guilty” on all five counts in his high profile case, Democrat leaders are calling on the Department of Justice to intervene in the Rittenhouse case on “civil rights” grounds. House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jerry Nadler called on the DOJ to review the Kyle Rittenhouse case for possible federal charges. This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ. Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage...

    A group of House Democrats will propose a resolution urging the Biden administration to condemn Israel and support six Palestinian groups designated as terrorist organizations by the Jewish state. Rep. Betty McCollum (D., Minn.) plans to introduce a resolution celebrating the designated Palestinian groups for the "value and importance" of their "courageous work," according to Haaretz. The resolution will be cosponsored by several House Democrats, including Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), and Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.). Among the groups backed in the Democratic resolution are the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which is designated...

    House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Gregory Meeks (D., N.Y.) is silent on whether he will return a $3,000 donation from a prominent Palestinian activist who called Israel a "parasite" that "sucks the blood of America." Osama Abuirshaid, the executive director of American Muslims for Palestine, during an interview with Jordan's Yarmouk TV on Sept. 22 described Israel as "a parasite living off the American body" that "sucks the blood of America and scatters its attention," according to a translation from the Middle East Media Research Institute. Abuirshaid, who has a history of anti-Semitic comments, donated $3,000 to Meeks in March,...

    Unlike many private insurance plans, Medicare does not currently cover the cost of wigs. Massachusetts Representative Ayanna Pressley would like to change that.“[To] be bald as a woman really does disrupt conventional and societal norms of what is appropriate, what is professional, what is attractive, what is feminine,” Pressley — who has hair-loss causing autoimmune disease alopecia — told Vanity Fair in an interview Thursday. The same day, she unveiled a bill requiring Medicare to pay for wigs for those experiencing hair loss due to disease or medical treatments. The new bill is brought by Pressley and her Massachusetts House...

    So-called “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) reportedly shows thousands of dollars in rental income with her husband in her financial disclosure forms, despite being a cosponsor of the “cancel rent” bill. Pressley’s annual financial disclosure, which every member files, shows she and her husband made up to $15,000 from rent, according to a report from Fox News. Her disclosure is from last year as the Chinese coronavirus was sweeping through the country.

Rashida Tlaib's annual financial disclosure shows that she made thousands of dollars in rental income last year, despite being a co-sponsor of a bill to cancel rent during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tlaib joined fellow "Squad" Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and other progressives in April 2020 to co-sponsor Rep. Ilhan Omar's, D-Minn., bill to "institute a nationwide cancellation of rents and home mortgage payments through the duration of the coronavirus pandemic."

    For how "devout" President Joe Biden supposedly is in his Catholic faith, there's another area where he could do better in living up to it. In this case it's his lack of action on preventing the death penalty from being carried out. Unlike his pro-abortion stance, though, Biden is angering members of his own party. Robert Dunham, the executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center, spoke to the Washington Examiner, saying that Biden's failure to act on the death penalty is "frustrating" to liberal Democrats. Such inaction on the death penalty is not merely hypothetical. As Spencer reported, Biden's...

    Dozens of House Democrats are now adopting “illegal alien gang members rights” as their latest “racial justice” cause. According to Fox News: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez , led a group of her House Democratic colleagues in a letter to federal immigration officials demanding an overhaul of immigration policies and objecting to gang members in the country illegally being targeted for deportation. Ocasio-Cortez and 34 of her Democratic colleagues sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Tae Johnson, calling on them to change immigration policies that rely on the US’s...

    'Cancel rent' champion earned thousands as landlord Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.) postponed filing her 2020 financial disclosure as the liberal congresswoman faced questions about whether she made money as a landlord during the coronavirus pandemic. Pressley moved to extend her filing deadline by 90 days on April 26, just one week after the Washington Free Beacon reported that she collected up to $15,000 in rental income during a four-month period in 2019. Pressley has championed rent cancellation bills throughout the pandemic, calling such legislation "literally a matter of life and death." Months into the pandemic, Pressley and her husband...

    Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer appear to be at odds with a vocal segment of the Democratic Party that has criticized Israel's actions toward the Palestinians amid the region's escalating conflict. According to the Associated Press, more than 120 Palestinians have been killed—including 31 children and 20 women. An additional 900 have been injured. "My expectation and hope is this will be closing down sooner than later," Biden said . "Israel has a right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory." Pelosi issued a similar statement on Tuesday. "I condemn the escalating...

Ilhan Omar, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Cori Bush, Rep.

  • Ayanna Pressley silence on her own rental property telling

    U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s silence on questions about her Boston property and whether she is charging rent during the coronavirus pandemic is becoming deafening. Pressley is one of the leading progressives in Congress but all too often just refuses to respond to non-softball questions — following the Elizabeth Warren school of public relations. One of the latest examples: A press release and press conference last month from her and other members of the “Squad” — Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Rep. Rashida Talib, D-Mich. — announcing they were re-introducing the “Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act.” What...

    Top progressive pol Sen. Bernie Sanders is breaking with his left-wing protégés over their calls to defund the police in the wake of the killing of Daunte Wright. Speaking to CNN Wednesday, Sanders (I-Vt.) said he did not agree with Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) over her call for “no more policing, incarceration, and militarization” after the killing of Wright, a black man who died at the hands of a white police officer. “No I don’t,” Sanders replied when asked if he concurred with his fellow progressive, who has been joined in her calls by fellow Squad members Reps. Ilhan Omar...

    Following the shooting deaths this week of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo, the disproportionate loudmouths in Congress, commonly referred to as “the Squad” repeated their oft-stated absurdity that police are killing unarmed black men and that America would be better off without them. It’s important to note that none of them offered to give up their own police protections made available to them at the Capitol. The woke mobs on social media immediately began to echo their calls anew as well. Within seconds “justice for Wright/Toledo” began to flood uninformed purveyors on Twitter and Instagram. The newer messaging phenomenon in...

    Rep. Ayanna Pressley just doesn’t want to make sure no murderers are executed, she’s also pushing the immediate release of all … fat prisoners. Yes, it’s right there, in what she proudly calls the “landmark Dismantle Mass Incarceration for Public Health Act” which she filed last year with fellow squad member Rep. Rashida Tlaib and California Rep. Barbara Lee. It would “require States and units of local government to certify a commitment to release certain individuals from jails and prisons,” including those who are “diagnosed with obesity.” Would this have included the pleasingly plump Boston Mafia boss Carmen “the Cheeseman”...

    Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley has called on the country "to address the evil and scourge that is White supremacy," one month after pro-Donald Trump rioters stormed the US Capitol. "One of the images that I'm haunted by is the Black custodial staff cleaning up the mess left by that violent White supremacist mob," the Massachusetts Democrat told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday, reflecting on her experience on Capitol Hill during the deadly siege on January 6. "That is a metaphor for America. We have been cleaning up after violent, White supremacist mobs for generations and it...
