Shortly after the 2018 midterm elections that not only gave majority and leadership of the US House of Representatives back to the democrats but gave us a basket-full of socialist-driven activist freshmen like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the establishment democrats enjoyed their new bundle of uber activist joys and their smarmy attitudes that fly and fart in the face of not only common sense but the nation’s founding and laws.
For awhile now Speaker Nancy Pelosi has clumsily shrugged-off and weakly explained away the behavior and outrageous statements those freshmen, AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. But of recent days it is very apparent the prediction that Nancy Pelosi was losing control of the House and her freshmen class is coming to fruition. These ill-elected women that Pelosi has named “The Squad” drive their self-appointed power with their social media drivel, and it is beginning to take a toll on their party’s leadership…
Omar continues to spew her anti-Semitism, with Tlaib chiming in and adding her disdain for America and singling out “white people’ as “white supremacists”. There is no grace or civility with these Congressional toxic flowers, only venomous thorns from root to stem … and Palosi is finding out just how badly she has handled them.
The public spat between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, got a lot nastier on Wednesday, with the freshman congresswoman suggesting that the speaker is “singling out” her and her colleagues based on their race.
Pelosi has worked to keep the Democratic caucus in line, specifically four newly-elected outspoken progressives: Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass..
However, a feud between Pelosi and the quartet escalated after Congress passed a border funding bill that the four young Democrats opposed. Pelosi discussed the bill, and those in her party who oppose it, in an interview last weekend. She told the New York Times: “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”
Ocasio-Cortez said to The Washington Post on Wednesday that the “persistent singling out” by the Speaker may be more than “outright disrespectful.”
“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“But the persistent singling out . . . it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful . . . the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.” …
Yep, she went there. AOC played the race card on Nancy Pelosi. And this was after AOC complained that *gasp* the Speaker and majority leader dared sit her ass on committees to keep her busy, or something…
What a difference a year makes:
Last year, shortly before her 78th birthday, Pelosi stood on the House floor for eight hours and spoke on behalf of DREAMers.
Now, she’s being called disrespectful to women of color by a member of her own caucus. https://t.co/4JWrSL5AW8

And how dare the Speaker of The House expect “The Squad” leader to do her damn job…
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y., wondered if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is purposely assigning her busy work, in an effort to discourage her outward dissent and keep her away from the public eye.
“I was assigned to two of some of the busiest committees and four subcommittees,” AOC said. “So my hands are full. And sometimes I wonder if they’re trying to keep me busy.”
“[We don’t have a relationship] that’s I think distinguished from anyone else,” she said. “Like, if there’s a legislative need, you know. The last time I kind of spoke to her one-on-one was when she asked me to join the Select Committee on Climate Change … I said no.”
She said she passed on Pelosi’s offer because the committee’s structure was not in line with her personal standards and ethical requirements.
“I had made very specific requests which I thought were rather reasonable for the Select Committee on Climate Change.” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“I asked that it have a mission to try to draft legislation by 2020 so that — so that we essentially have a 2-year mission to put together whether it’s a Green New Deal or whether it’s some sweeping climate change legislation that — that the select committee has a legislative mission.”
And they thought the TEA Party freshmen were disruptive and pushy? The TEA Party republicans were trying to get the Congress and the government back to the core principles laid out in the US Constitution. These “democrat-socialists” are intent on a total Venezuelan style takeover of our country and every aspect of life, personal and public, therein.
No matter what Pelosi says, directly or indirectly … in public or in their democrat caucus meetings, to these thorny blooms they not only persist but escalate. But Nancy’s not raising any white flag any time soon with these radical pups…
Oh, and by the way, AOC’s latest brilliant idea out of her socialist pointy-head is to get rid of the agency that was formed to protect our safety and security since 9-11-01 … the Department of Homeland Security. This is not some libertarian bent within this Boston post-turtle. No, she seeks to dismantle, teardown and completely destroy everything that makes our nation and our people safe. No border. No law and order. No public opinions against elected officials allowed. And DHS is in her/their way…
It’s really not that radical.
When DHS was 1st formed by Bush 17 years ago, many members of Congress were concerned – incl GOP – that we were setting up a ticking time bomb for civil liberties erosion & abuse of power.
Discussing reorganization shouldn’t be out of the question. https://t.co/dLckI4UYIL

It’s not enough they have deemed our government authorities on our sovereign border Nazis that are running “concentration camps”, but refuse to vote to throw more funding to aide the humanitarian crisis their party has helped create. As we have just witnessed, they, and their leader AOC, assume they can just throw around race as a weapon against opposition, and as a protection for themselves against reproach for what they say and do as elected officials.
Just ask Tucker Carlson, who Omar is trying her damnedest to get fired…

Tucker Carlson is right.
There’s a phrase I don’t think I’ll ever tire of saying.
But the knives are out for him again after Carlson used his opening monologue on Fox last night to hit out at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her lack of gratitude towards America.
It’s uncomfortable to address. Not least because when one does, one is relentlessly smeared and attacked as a “racist” or “xenophobe” like Carlson has been over the past 12 hours by CNN, the Huffington Post, Media Matters, and Omar herself.
The Congresswoman tweeted that Carlson is a “racist fool”, underscoring his point.
But since, I suppose, I have some brown privilege, allow me to use it in defense of Carlson and his thesis.
There are problems with immigration into the West.
I’ll start by making something clear: I love my family, my ethnicity, and the color of my skin. How could I not? It is who I am.
But I loathe when people of a similar ethnic background or persuasion to me are ungrateful for their presence in the West.
Again, don’t get me wrong, that doesn’t mean immigrants can’t be constructive critics. As dutiful citizens, immigrants have as much right and as much responsibility as those born in the West or native to it to contribute to the cultural and political discourse.
But Omar and her ilk don’t do this.
Instead, they claw at and attempt to tear down that which made the West somewhere they wanted to live in the first instance.
This doesn’t only apply to immigrants, either. It’s deeply rooted in the tactics of the political left, making Omar’s interventions in favor of tearing America apart doubly potent……
Read the whole thing.
@IlhanMN may 'call' for whatever she likes. It will not stop @TuckerCarlson @TuckerTonight, nor will it stop #Americans from sizing her up according to the facts, no matter how #fascist her shallow tactics. No public official who values the 1st Amendment would make such demands.
