When Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not weeping in congressional hearings — and then tweeting out her emotional performances — she’s alleging racism, as she did this week against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
But she’s now amping up her game in a new direction: Claiming she’s getting death threats — and blaming Pelosi for them.
The two have been locked in a battle, with AOC claiming Pelosi is giving her committee assignments that demand a lot of work, effectively taking the media-starved newcomer out of the spotlight. When Pelosi dismissed the charge, AOC then claimed the Speaker is racist.
“It’s singling out four individuals, and knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration of attention,” Ocasio-Cortez said on CNN. “I think it’s just worth asking why.”
That claim followed one earlier this week, when AOC attacked Pelosi.
“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.”
Lindsay Graham as Per-Tweeted by President Trump:
“We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of Communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own Country, they’re calling the guards along our Border (the Border Patrol Agents) Concentration Camp Guards, they accuse people who support Israel as doing it for the Benjamin’s,....
....they are Anti-Semitic, they are Anti-America, we don’t need to know anything about them personally, talk about their policies. I think they are American citizens who are duly elected that are running on an agenda that is disgusting, that the American people will reject......
....What does it mean for America to have free Healthcare for Illegal Immigrants, no criminalization of coming into our Country - See how that works for controlling Immigration! They talk about Israel like they’re a bunch of thugs, not victims of the entire region. They wanted...
.....to impeach President Trump on DAY ONE. Make them the face of the future of the Democrat Party, you will destroy the Democrat Party. Their policies will destroy our Country!” @LindseyGrahamSC Need I say more?
President Trump Tweets:
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly..........and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how........it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!
When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!
If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
Friday’s tour showed vividly, to politicians and the media, how well run and clean the children’s detention centers are. Great reviews! Failing @nytimes story was FAKE! The adult single men areas were clean but crowded - also loaded up with a big percentage of criminals...........Sorry, can’t let them into our Country. If too crowded, tell them not to come to USA, and tell the Dems to fix the Loopholes - Problem Solved!
So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country and who, in addition, hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion. Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, “RACIST.” Their disgusting language.....
....and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged. If the Democrat Party wants to continue to condone such disgraceful behavior, then we look even more forward to seeing you at the ballot box in 2020!
We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE! It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country........They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more........Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!
The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” but now they are forced to embrace them. That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!
The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.
Former Chicago Mayor and Obama Adviser Rahm Emanuel jumped into the fray on Sunday and went after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff:
Rahm Emanuel: “What votes did you get?” Emanuel said, rhetorically challenging A.O.C.’s chief of staff. “You should only be so lucky to learn from somebody like Nancy who has shown incredible courage and who has twice returned the Democratic Party to power.
Emanuel called Saikat Chakrabarti a “snot-nosed punk.”
Louisiana congressman Ralph Abraham offered to purchase plane tickets for Ilhan Omar and her compatriots so they can leave the country.
There is overwhelming evidence that Ilhan Omar married her own brother to defraud US immigration.
Not only did she reportedly defraud US immigration, Omar may have also filed fraudulent state and federal tax returns.
In a 2017, Rep. Omar swore under penalty of perjury while divorcing her husband (brother?) that she hadn’t seen Ahmed N. Elmi since 2011 and didn’t know anyone who could help her contact him.
President Trump: "I'm looking at this Omar from Minnesota. And if one half of the things they're saying about her are true she shouldn't even be in office." https://t.co/BHwZzgXp1Epic.twitter.com/hHeBAX0lqD

So they called for a press conference and pretty much confirmed what everyone thinks about them:
On Monday during their press conference Rep. Ilhan Omar was asked by FOX reporter Chad Pergram on her disgusting comments on Al-Qaeda and 9-11. Ilhan refused to answer. Says it’s time Muslims that Muslims do not have to respond to attacks by radical Muslims. Omar stayed away from comments on her marriage to a brother and tax fraud.
“Are you pro-al Qaeda?” is not a trick question, but Rep. Ilhan Omar refused to answer. pic.twitter.com/JLWIuvQxOm

Trump administration unveils 'new restrictions for asylum' seekers at the Southern Border....
.washingtonexaminer ^ | 7/15/2019 | Melissa Quinn
The Departments of Homeland Security and Justice released a new rule Monday under which migrants who enter the United States at the southern border are ineligible for asylum unless they sought protection in one of the countries they traveled through first. The measure, an effort to stem the flow of migrants from Central America into the U.S., is expected to take effect Tuesday.
To remain eligible for safe harbor in the U.S., the rule requires migrants to first seek protection in a country they traverse, such as Mexico, El Salvador, or Guatemala, before arriving at the southern border.
Attorney General William Barr said in a statement the Trump administration is acting within the authority designed by Congress to restrict asylum eligibility... “This rule will decrease 'forum shopping by economic migrants' and those who seek 'to exploit our asylum system to obtain entry to the United States'.

Trump administration announces sweeping immigration overhaul, drastically limiting number of migrants eligible for asylum
The Trump administration on Monday announced a sweeping new policy tightening restrictions for asylum seekers, in a move that could drastically reduce the number of migrants eligible to enter the United States in this way. The new rule, which will be published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey. In most cases, only if that application is denied would they then be able to seek asylum in the United States.
And this is ignored by the socialist crowd…
Venezuela Forces Killed Thousands, Then Covered It Up, U.N. Says
Is the USA standing by while thousands of democracy seeking Venezuelans are being killed? What about Venezuala's neighbors? The UN?
More Role Models for Women of the Left/s:
The U.S. women’s World Cup soccer champions team was honored by New York City with a ticker tape parade on Wednesday that was attended by thousands of young girls and women celebrating the repeat championship by the team.
Several video clips show the players celebrating and cursing. And cursing. And cursing. Even in the modern era where occasional profanity slips out from professional athletes, the constant stream of public profanity by the women’s soccer team is unprecedented in professional U.S. sports–especially for a team representing the nation in world body competition.
The most shared video is of Ashlyn Harris riffing on the classic Antoine Dodson video in a livestream from the parade. The Daily Mail’s David Martosko transcribed:
USWNT soccer player at the parade, into the camera: “Hide your kids! Hide your wives! And lock your f***ing doors! Because we’ve got the key to the mother-f***ing city and I’m coming for all y’all bi***es!’
