    Democratic congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, three of the most influential voices among young progressive liberals, will all reportedly endorse Senator Bernie Sanders in his 2020 bid for presidency. In an article published on Tuesday evening, The Washington Post reported that two unnamed sources with knowledge of the plan said Ocasio-Cortez, 30, will join Sanders, 78, at a campaign rally on Saturday to announce the surprise endorsement. During the fourth Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, Sanders revealed that a "special guest" would join him in New York. "We're looking forward to Saturday," Corbin Trent, a spokesperson for...

    US Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested Monday that the press and her political foes are partly to blame for the demise of her marriage. “Ilhan and Ahmed have been the object of speculation and innuendo from political opponents and the media,” according to a statement from her lawyer, referring to the Minnesota congresswoman and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, and which the rep said he was issuing “on behalf” of Omar. “This has taken a significant toll on Ilhan, Ahmed, and their three children. “As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family,” the statement added.

    In October, President Donald Trump will be visiting the Minneapolis district being represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. And while beset with marital problems, rumors of affairs and claims she may have married her brother to skirt immigration laws, Omar took time to notice. On Thursday, the Trump 2020 campaign announced a Keep America Great rally at the 20,000 seat Target Center in Minneapolis on October 10. “Minnesota is booming thanks to President Trump and jobs are coming back to the state,” Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said in a release. “Since President...

    “We should do what any other country does, by dealing with this situation in a serious way,” Rep. Omar insisted at a public meeting in Minnesota– but the Somalia-born ‘Squad’ member was not advocating building a wall or adopting a robust policy of turning illegal migrants away, as sovereignist governments in Hungary and Italy have done, drastically reducing not only migrant numbers, but also migrant deaths. Instead, she demanded an outside entity take control of the situation, demanding: “[W]e have to bring in the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees – an agency that has the expertise and the training...
  • American Politicians Can’t Hide “Private Lives”, Ilhan Omar

    Ilhan Omar’s alleged affair with a married man in her employ is not strictly her personal business or guaranteed airtight protection under the claim of it being her “private life”. It is instead the business of every American. Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar obviously thinks that being a “woman of color” grants her the privilege of keeping her “personal life” off the public radar screen—a status that doesn’t exist for American politicians, ‘women of color’ or not. Activist politicians of our day work with social media to create and control their own digital image. In the case of active “Squad”...

    Radical Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was denied access to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) contracted facility earlier this month after she failed to request a tour. Tlaib then created a public relations spectacle, claiming she was unfairly barred despite showing up to the facility without notice.Earlier this month, Tlaib stormed the Calhoun County jail in Michigan with two members of her staff, two immigration attorneys, and a reported group of eight or nine people. Calhoun County jail has contracts with ICE.Tlaib tweeted that she was “denied access to tour the facility,” and received nearly 12,000 “likes” on Twitter.“If they...

    A Washington, DC, mom says her political-consultant husband left her for Rep. Ilhan Omar, according to a bombshell divorce filing obtained by The Post. Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett says her cheating spouse, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative... The 37-year-old congresswoman and mom of three paid Tim Mynett and his E. Street Group approximately $230,000 through her campaign since 2018 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, internet advertising and travel expenses.

    Meanwhile, the president and millions of Americans are not scared of the likes of tough-talking Bully Rashida Tlaib—only repulsed by her Openly “bragging” about President Donald Trump being “scared” of you and Sister “Squad” members won’t get you anywhere, Rashida Tlaib. It won’t get you anywhere because “It’s the kind of braggadocio that only bullies choose to use. “Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has claimed that President Trump is “scared” of her and her fellow “Squad” members in the wake of her canceled trip to Israel and the subsequent feud with the president.”

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib came out swinging Saturday, saying President Trump was afraid of her and other members of “the squad.” “It’s been very clear to me, especially this last week, that he’s scared of us,” Tlaib told the Guardian in her first interview since declining Israel’s invitation to visit her grandmother on humanitarian grounds. “He’s afraid of women of color … because we’re not afraid of him and we’re not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda,” Tlaib said. The president uses attacks on the squad...

    Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) have remained silent after the Palestinian Authority banned LGBT activity in the West Bank. These members of "The Squad" have supported legislation praising the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and voted against legislation condemning it. PJ Media reached out to them for comment on the move, and they have remained silent. Early Monday morning, The Jerusalem Post reported that the PA and Palestine Police had outlawed LGBT activity in the West Bank and threatened to arrest members of the LGBT group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian...

    WASHINGTON — Allies of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and the other members of the so-called squad are expecting the progressive lawmakers to face potential primary challenges next year from more establishment-leaning forces, so they're working to shore them up politically now. The labor union-backed Working Families Party, which missed their chance to endorse Ocasio-Cortez during her primary last year, is now offering an unusually early endorsement for the New York Democratic congresswoman and the three other members of "the squad," pledging to back them in intra-party fights or try to dissuade challengers before they materialize. "They’re facing the combined institutional...

    DUNBAR, Pa. (KDKA) – A dartboard at the Fayette County Republicans booth with the faces of four liberal congresswomen taped on it has sparked controversy on social media. A woman attending the Fayette County Fair shared a photo on Facebook of the dartboard. The dartboard features the faces of four Democratic congresswomen President Trump had recently targeted in controversial tweets. The fair-goer also said there was a cornhole board with Nancy Pelosi’s mouth as the opening. Bill Kozlovich, Fayette County GOP Chairman, said his cornhole board game has been around for years. Instead of bean bags, he uses stuffed socks...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) agreed with a radio host's description of Israel's treatment of Palestinians as "criminal" during an interview Tuesday and suggested Palestinians had no recourse but violence. On his hip-hop program "Ebro in the Morning," interviewer Ebro Darden said there was a collection of "corrupt" governments in Israel, the United States, Russia, and Saudi Arabia, "all working in concert," and referred to White House policy adviser Stephen Miller as a white supremacist. "How do you have white supremacist Jews?" he asked. "How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are...

    To be fair, the same Emerson poll shows that the alternative face of the Democratic Party doesn’t fare much better. Among Democrats, both Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez get majorities seeing them favorably, and the other three “Squad” members also get double-digit positive overall favorability ratings. When it comes to the general electorate, however, fortunes reverse sharply for both the Speaker and the Squad: The Democratic House leadership is struggling with favorability among voters; Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a 28% favorable opinion and a 46% unfavorable opinion. The House “squad,” consisting of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Illan Omar...

The campaign video kicks with an image of Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), with googly eyes relacing Ocasio-Cortez’s regular eyes and the caption “The Squad: Meet the Leaders of the Democrat Party.”

They can no longer count on the Robert Mueller III-led Special Counsel as their go-to source for impeaching President Donald Trump anymore.
