Claims ‘Squad’ Members Are Not Socialists

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 7/20/2019 3:24:19 PM

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell claimed on Thursday that members of the “Squad” are not socialists, despite the fact that two of them have explicitly identified as such. Mitchell took issue with Republican leadership – particularly House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) – describing the ultra-left crew as “socialist Democrats” and claimed during a panel discussion Thursday that “none” of the “Squad” members are socialists.(Snip)Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Rashida Tlaib are card-carrying members of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). A third member of #TheSquad, Rep. Ilhan Omar, "is proud to call herself a democratic socialist," according to her staff.

My dear Andrea, you need to get WOKE. If a man identifies as a woman, she IS a woman. If a woman identifies as a man, he IS a man. Therefore, if a person identifies as a SOCIALIST, that person IS a Socialist. (Of course, since the exception proves the rule, a member of Congress who identifies as a REPUBLICAN, may in fact be a liar who claims membership solely to get elected in a majority Republican district.)

But Miz Mitchell (Greenspan) is right! They aren't socialists. They are full blown communists. And at least half of them are jihadist islamists too.

The Squad Four are Anti-Americans blinded with rage and hate. They come from areas that have pockets of discontent for previous wars and positions we took as a country. I recall hearing them speak on TV years past. Angela Davis comes to mind. There will always be those that find fault with our way of life and government. They are the disruptive demonstrators who should have never been elected to congress. The Democrat Party needs to do a better job with who they support going forward not only with their Freshmen, but also with those running for higher office. Anti American is not acceptable. Andrea suffers from the same condition as Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi.

This excuse for an "investigative" reporter is actually only 72. (Her hubby, Alan Greenspan, is 92 ... and probably functioning better in the thought department). I guess she was once his arm-candy. Her long tenure as a "reporter" shows hundreds of examples of her covering for the Far Left and carrying water for them. An Obummer groupie. Nothing to do with her being a shrew. Just one minute of research on "Andrea Mitchell Lies" will produce her calling the State of Virginia "redneck country" on the air. Also laughed at Romney when he was "impressed" by a computer screen in a WaWa --- trying to tie him to the old Bush canard proven wrong 1,000 times. Then once she claimed the WWII Jewish ghetto riots in Warsaw were against the Polish Government! And don't get me started on her claiming Valerie Plame was "destroyed" by Scooter Libby! Worthless piece of garbage.

Bizarre Status of Flynn Partner Trial –

The status of the Eastern District of Virginia case against former partner of Michael Flynn, Bijan Rafiekian is bizarre. Apparently U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr has not engaged into this case, and the current status is a mess. The head-scratching FARA case was tenuous from the outset as the prosecution was arguing a rather odd legal interpretation of FARA statutes; and now the DOJ could be handed a dismissal, even if the jury returns a guilty verdict. Yes, when you stretch legal interpretation beyond evidence, it’s a mess.

Wishful thinking among many libertarian and socialist idealists is that an alliance might form between them. After all, members of both ideological camps believe that anything goes when it comes to sex and drugs, neither of them believe in national borders, and both are repelled by conservative ideologues. The problem with such an alliance of idealists, of course, is that at the core, the socialist believes in big government and the libertarian believes in no government. No matter how you further define those core beliefs, they are incompatible. But the powerful special interests behind the libertarian and progressive movements,

Mass Fraud by African Refugees Halted Inflow After Ilhan Omar Came to U.S. 9 replies

A refugee program that allowed foreign relatives of already-arrived foreign refugees to the United States was halted, altogether, more than a decade ago due to mass fraud among applicants. This week, Powerline blog’s David Steinberg suggested that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) entered the U.S. in the mid-1990s as a third-priority, known as P-3, refugee — that is, a refugee who is admitted to the country due to their ties to an already-resettled refugee. Steinberg’s report also claims that Omar committed immigration fraud when she falsely entered the country as a member of the “Omar” family that had already resettled in the U.S.

ATHENS—Standing right below the Acropolis, where pure democracy began because public officials were elected by lot, I try to imagine if random political selection today would be a good thing. The answer is a resounding yes. Both Socrates and Aristotle questioned fundamental norms and values, and if they lived today they would certainly question the acceptance by us of career politicians who have never had any other profession. (Corbyn, Biden, I could go on.) Socrates was skeptical about many things, especially the arts, because he believed they led us away from the truth. Yet so-called “artists” today influence public opinion as never before.

Iranian lawmakers on Sunday said they believe their country should impose a “toll” on all ships that pass through the vital Strait of Hormuz. The proposal comes just 48 hours after Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) seized a British oil tanker traveling through the Strait, a key shipping channel in the region. In a statement Sunday, a group of Iranian lawmakers praised the move and said Tehran should go even further in exercising control over the Strait. “We support the IRGC Navy’s proper and firm measure to seize an offending British oil tanker and ask the IRGC to continue its path firmly and powerfully,”

Omar, of course, is a notorious, unrepentant anti-Semite and daily demonizer of Israel. But she has become, for many Jews, a heroine, a civil rights star, a noble cause. Enjoying such support, Omar rewarded the Jewish community by immediately announcing, after the Resolution’s passage, a piece of legislation demanding that Congress vote in favor of BDS against Israel and her Jewish inhabitants.
