Seven stories on the foolishness of “the Squad”


Problems with Rashida Tlaib

  1. Rashida Tlaib Boos Hillary Clinton at Bernie Sanders Rally: ‘No, No, I’ll Boo’

Breitbart reports in a 1 February 2020 article that Rashida Tlaib bucked the lead of the moderator and led the crowd in booing Hillary Clinton.

rashida-iowa-boo-hillaryRep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) booed Hillary Clinton at an Iowa event for her candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Friday evening, drawing laughter from the audience.

Tlaib made an appearance at Sanders’ “Caucus Concert” in Clive, Iowa, on Friday, which also featured a performance by the indie folk band Bon Iver, and took an opportunity on stage to boo Sanders’ former challenger.

During the panel discussion, the moderator, Dionna Langford, made a reference to Clinton’s recent remarks that “nobody likes him [Sanders].”

“We’re not going to boo. We’re not going to boo. We’re classy here,” Langford told the audience.

Tlaib interjected.

“No, no, I’ll boo,” she said, shouting “boo” loudly into the microphone:

Had this been a Republican, this would be on the front page of the New York Times

As we all know, had a conservative or other out-of-favor group booed Hillary Clinton, they would have been pilloried by most media outlets, both left and right. However, because this politician has a Democrat and a Muslim label, the main stream media has decided to ignore this event. The only way we find out about it is that a few right-wing media do the job that the main stream media as abandoned.

  1. Rashida Tlaib Releases Apologetic Statement After Booing Hillary Clinton

Breitbart also reports in a 1 February 2020 article that Rashida Tlaib has flip-flopped on her opposition to Hillary.

rashida-tlaib-apologizes-after-clip-booing-hillary-clinton-goes-viralRep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Saturday released an apologetic statement after going viral for booing Hillary Clinton at a campaign event for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Friday evening, explaining that she allowed her “disappointment with Secretary Clinton’s latest comments about Senator Sanders and his supporters get the best of me.”

Tlaib released the statement after booing at the mention of Clinton at Sanders’ “Caucus Concert” in Clive, Iowa, explaining her frustration with attempts to “dismiss the strength and diversity” of Sanders’ movement.

“I am so incredibly in love with the movement that our campaign of #NotMeUs has created. This makes me protective over it and frustrated by attempts to dismiss the strength and diversity of our movement,” she wrote.

“However, I know what is at stake if we don’t unify over one candidate to beat Trump and I intend to do everything possible to ensure that Trump does not win in 2020,” she continued, explaining that she “allowed my disappointment with Secretary Clinton’s latest comments about Senator Sanders and his supporters get the best of me”:

Although the main stream press will not let us know, there is a war going on in the Democrat party

Between the Clinton moderates and the Warren/Sanders/Buttigieg socialists, people have come to a war of words (refer to the post Kyle Jurek to see how a Bernie supporter says cities will burn if Bernie doesn’t get the nomination).

Problems with AOC

  1. Ocasio-Cortez Tells Billionaires: The People Don’t Want Your Money; They Want Your Power

In a 21 January 2020 article, Breitbart repeats the claims by AOC that socialists don’t want billionaires’ money — they want the billionaires’ power.

AOC_isAnIdiotRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday delivered a message to billionaires, stating that the people want their “power” — not their money.

The New York lawmaker spoke at the Blackout for Human Rights: MLK Now 2020 in Harlem’s Riverside Church on Monday, stating that if billionaires want to be ethical, they should relinquish their power.

“If Jeff Bezos wants to be a good person, you turn Amazon into a worker cooperative,” she said to cheers. “You know, like what do I do with all this money that I have created with this unjust system?”

“And if — usually if you’re a billionaire, that means that you control a massive system. It means that you own oil supplies. It means that you control textiles. It means that you have a massive labor force under your control,” she continued.

“And to be ethical, if you’re a billionaire today, the thing that you need to do is give up control and power. So I don’t want your money as much as we want your power. The people. Not me,” she clarified:

What power (other than money) do all billionaires have?

According to the decision of the Supreme Court in Buckley versus Valeo, the ability to direct money to support a cause or a candidate constitutes free speech. Therefore, other than the billionaire’s ability to support a candidate with money or resources (food, transportation, goods, services, …) — what power does the billionaire have that AOC supposedly wants over the money?

This woman is a bloviating moron.

  1. AOC claims Democrats are center or center-conservative

The Washington Times provides the words of Representative Ocasio-Cortez — who said Democrats are the “center or center-conservative.”

If one is a socialist, the Democratic Party probably does look conservative.

At a Martin Luther King Day event Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York Democrat, derided her party as insufficiently left-wing and too beholden to capitalism.

AOC_isAnIdiotTwo“We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party,” the freshman congresswoman said to audience applause. “The Democratic Party is a center or a center-conservative party.”

How has “socialist” become “center or center-conservative?”

How has the party who staged cry-ins outside of a inner-city school in South Texas now transformed into a conservative party? How has the party who denies due process to a
sitting President
become a conservative party? When has the party who cannot handle a caucus of the Democrat part of a small state (but still wants to nationalize our health care) somehow transformed into a conservative group?

More centrally, when has the controlling socialist (as exposed through the Green New Deal) become the freedom-loving, job-creating conservative?

  1. A-Owe-C riles Dems by refusing to pay party dues, bankrolling colleagues’ opponents

Fox News points out how AOC has been marginalizing herself by both refusing to pay her Democrat party dues and then bankrolling opponents in the Democrat party who are not liberal enough for her tastes.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already topped the fundraising charts in her short time in Congress, but the liberal darling won’t donate a cent of her millions to Democrats’ House campaign organization — a position that has rankled some of her colleagues, Fox News has learned.

Instead, Ocasio-Cortez is building her own fundraising operation for fellow progressive candidates to bypass the official Democratic Party infrastructure. Already, she’s actively funding primary challengers to oust certain Democratic colleagues.

“Sometimes the question comes: ‘Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?’” Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., told Fox News, when asked about AOC’s stance. “And do you want to be part of a team?”

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairwoman Cheri Bustos downplayed Ocasio-Cortez’s decision to shun dues and pointed to the record-breaking fundraising numbers the committee has notched without her.

“That’s always up to individual members so I guess I don’t think about it one way or another,” Bustos said when asked about Ocasio-Cortez’s stance. “We’re raising record amounts of money from our members.”

Democrats deserve this. This is socialism in action.

Democrats birthed the baby of class warfare and then got rich off of the taxpayers. Therefore, it follows that one of their own kind would start to step in their path. Ocasio-Cortez has only begun to take from the rich Democrat party and give to her poor socialist comrades.

Problems with Ilhan Omar

  1. Iranian Journalist Says Ilhan Omar Helped Smear Her After She Criticized Soleimani

The Daily Caller reported in a 10 January 2020 article that Masih Alinejad became the victim of a smear campaign after that Iranian journalist criticized General Soleimani.

Iranian journalist and author Masih Alinejad says Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has been a part of a smear campaign against her.

Alinejad wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post criticizing the late Iranian General Qasem Soleimani and claiming that many Iranians viewed him as a warmonger and even a war criminal rather than a celebrated leader — and Friday evening, she told Fox News host Martha MacCallum that Omar had joined those attacking her.

Alinejad said that she believed the attacks were a response to her recent article, saying, “I criticized Soleimani and I’ve said that many Iranians do not see him as a hero. They see him as a warmonger, as a war criminal. And that is why I got a lot of attacks by these Islamist lobbyists and she actually shared one of these defamatory articles against me.”

Alinejad said that what really bothered her was the fact that she had reached out to the freshman congresswoman on a number of occasions, asking her repeatedly to lend her voice to different situations.

“One time, six women got arrested just because of protesting compulsory hijab. Another time, 29 women in Iran got arrested in one day because of protesting compulsory hijab, and I asked Omar to join us and show solidarity. She was silent,” Alinejad began. “And another time when my brother was taken hostage by the Revolutionary Guard, I reach out to her. Silence again. My mother was interrogated for three hours just because of my activities. Again, she was silent. 1500 people got killed, she was silent. Right now, 176 people got killed in a suspicious situation in Iran, Ukrainian airplane — she’s silent!”

“Are you suggesting that she doesn’t care about the freedom that you are fighting for?” MacCallum pressed, asking whether Alinejad believed Omar was actually siding with the regime and against the people.

Why should we expect a leftist Representative who seems to have cheated the system to gain entry to the USA to act differently?

Why would we expect a Democrat (who comes from a pool of identity politics and bases her election on her religion and race) to treat this journalist fairly when that journalist bucks the Democrat norm and took stances the elected Democrat did not like?

  1. Ilhan Omar Continues To Dump Big Bucks Into Alleged Boyfriend’s Firm

The Daily Caller reports how Ilhan Omar continues in 2020 to dump money into her boyfriend’s firm.

Over half of Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign expenditures in the last quarter of 2019 went to her alleged boyfriend’s consulting firm, according to Federal Election Commission filings released Friday.

Omar’s campaign paid $217,000 to E Street Group LLC between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 for research services, digital advertising, fundraising consulting, travel and more, filings show. The firm is run by Democratic consultant Tim Mynett, who was accused by his ex-wife in August of having an affair with Omar.

The fourth-quarter spending figures represent yet another significant uptick in the level of campaign funds Omar has dedicated to Mynett’s firm.

In the third quarter of 2019, Omar disbursed about $146,713 to E Street Group, and in the 10-month period prior, from August 2018 to June 2019, her total spending with the firm was $223,000.

In total, Mynett’s firm has received $587,000 from Omar’s campaign, the bulk of which was received after he was alleged to be dating the congresswoman.

So, Ilhan Omar may have married her brother, may have lied to gain entrance to the USA, and seems to have broken up a marriage while married

While Ilhan Omar may have married her brother, lied to gain entrance to the USA, seems to have committed campaign finance violations, seems to have broken up a marriage while she was also married — she does not seem to be slowing down with her illegal and immoral acts.

All the time, she wears a hijab — a symbol of her Islamic chastity and morality.

This woman wearing a hijab for chastity makes about as much sense as Americans handing over their health care to Democrats (who got hacked in 2016 and could not run a 200K member caucus in 2020).

  1. What do you see should America turn over the health care system to this party that cannot run a caucus for a state with 200K voters? What happens when a politician with the impulsiveness (or vindictiveness) of Rashida Tlaib gains power over your medical decisions?
