It’s pretty easy to figure out.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D), just like all Democrats, want open borders.

That way, they can secure their places atop the throne of Congress for decades to come.

Shameful.

Enter AOC, who wants ICE and DHS eliminated…

From Fox News:

Former New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez said Wednesday on “Outnumbered” that getting rid of the Department of Homeland Security – as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently suggested – is “pure insanity” and would put the country at risk.

“Homeland Security was created in order to keep America safe, it was created after 9/11. I just think Ocasio-Cortez is into the shock and awe. She wants to make a statement and be ahead of everything,” said Martinez, who served as the state’s Republican governor from 2011 to 2019.

Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., made her remarks during a Friday appearance on the New Yorker Radio with host David Remnick, bringing up the fact that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is under DHS.

WATCH:

It looks like conservative Senator Ted Cruz (TX) and Alexandria are set to team up.

What do you think of this…?

From Daily Wire:

On Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) — a duo in Congress who could not have more polarized views on most issues — signaled support in a potential bill targeting congressmen-turned-lobbyists, AKA “the swamp.”

AOC tweeted:

If you are a member of Congress + leave, you shouldn’t be allowed to turn right around&leverage your service for a lobbyist check.

I don’t think it should be legal at ALL to become a corporate lobbyist if you’ve served in Congress.

At minimum there should be a long wait period.

Cruz’s response:

Here’s something I don’t say often: on this point, I AGREE with @AOC Indeed, I have long called for a LIFETIME BAN on former Members of Congress becoming lobbyists. The Swamp would hate it, but perhaps a chance for some bipartisan cooperation?

AOC fired back:

[email protected] if you’re serious about a clean bill, then I’m down.

Let’s make a deal.

If we can agree on a bill with no partisan snuck-in clauses, no poison pills, etc – just a straight, clean ban on members of Congress becoming paid lobbyists – then I’ll co-lead the bill with you.

Cruz’s retort:

You’re on.

AOC once more:

Okay, with @brianschatz + @tedcruz we’ve got at least one D-R team in the Senate to ban members becoming lobbyists, & myself w/ @chiproytx makes at least one D-R team in the House.

And that’s just in a few hours – there will surely be more from both parties to sign on.

Nice ????????

Democrat Joe Manchin Burns Beto, Says ‘He’s Not Taking My Guns From Me’

Boom!

Published

on

It’s very, very rare for me to ever applaud a Democrat for well, basically anything, but Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin recently delivered a message to fellow presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke that left me stunned as I launched into an immediate slow clap. Manchin stated he was no fan of the way O’Rourke fielded questions about gun rights and how he made it seem that his position was the default Democrat position. He also said that O’Rourke wasn’t going to take his guns and finished by saying, “You tell Beto that, okay?” Whew. That’s a burn. A big, nasty burn. via Daily Wire: O’Rourke promised Americans during the last Democratic presidential primary debate that “hell yes,” he’s going to take law-abiding citizens’ guns, such as AR-15s and AK-47s. “Beto’s one human being. He gave his own opinion, OK?” Sen. Manchin told Wall Street Journal reporter Lindsay Wise. “I think it was very harmful to make it look like all the Democrats.” “I can tell you one thing: [Beto O’Rourke’s] not taking my guns away from me,” Manchin added. “You tell Beto that OK?” https://twitter.com/lindsaywise/status/1174378345594806278 Manchin went on to clarify that he personally does not own an AR-15, so the buyback program wouldn’t impact him at all. https://twitter.com/frankthorp/status/1174412138569437185 This is simply amazing. A Democrat who isn’t necessarily a radical gun grabber? Stop the presses. This has to be a hoax, right? There’s no way such an individual exists. There just can’t be. This does not compute. At the end of the day, Manchin is still a Democrat, which is the last thing this country needs in the White House, but hey, at least this guy seems a bit more sensible than most folks in his party. Either way, O’Rourke isn’t taking his guns, and you know what, he’s not taking mine either.

Photos Emerge Of Super Liberal Justin Trudeau In Blackface; He Confesses To Wearing Blackface More Than Once

This guy’s career should be imploding.

Published

on

One of the most enigmatic political figures in the world is without a doubt Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a super liberal and progressive fellow who has swept the world with his youth, charisma, and charm. But it seems those days might be over, thanks to a bunch of party photos from 2001 that have resurfaced, showing Trudeau rocking blackface during his time at a private school where he was teaching. Ouch. Oh, but that’s not bad enough. Trudeau has actually admitted to wearing blackface on multiple occasions. via Daily Wire: “The photograph has not been previously reported. The picture was taken at an ‘Arabian Nights’-themed gala. It shows Trudeau, then the 29-year-old son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands completely darkened,” TIME reported. “The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher.” TIME received a copy of the yearbook earlier this month from Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, “who was part of the West Point Grey Academy community” and “felt [the photo] should be made public.” Zita Astravas, who works in media relations in Liberal Party of Canada, which Trudeau is the leader of, confirmed that Trudeau was the person in the photo wearing blackface: “It was a photo taken while he was teaching in Vancouver, at the school’s annual dinner which had a costume theme of ‘Arabian Nights.’ He attended with friends and colleagues dressed as a character from Aladdin.” Trudeau spoke with reporters during a press conference not long after the TIME report broke, where he admitted to donning blackface more than once, then dodged questions about whether or not he would resign amid the scandal. Trudeau said, “I stand here before Canadians…
