Democratic representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has reacted to President Trump's comments about her and three other congresswomen - in which he told them to 'go back' to 'the totally broken and crime infested placed from which they came.' Speaking at a town hall event in her own New York district, she said the remarks endangered millions of Americans.

Comments:

VIDEO. If you can stand listening and watching her, she is utterly nonsensical. Does she ever really think, or does she just shoot off her mouth and jumpstart her hands and hope that what happens sounds good? (geez....)

He did not “tell them to go back”. He asked “why don’t they go, fix, return, and show us how it’s done?” Be careful about what he actually said, not what you thought he said.

I agree on this one with AOC. In fact 6,000,000 million more people are in danger because they now have jobs and want to go to work to empower themselves. Safer to stay home and collect a welfare checks. Trump is evil because he is putting people in danger.

Sorry. Mini-Cortez is off the air. She and her family got death threats. You cannot mock the left. They will Keeeeel you. She won one election. Can she win another? I doubt it. What is wrong with the voters who elected this twit? Have they no sense? She supposedly has a college education. What did she learn? Nothing. Tax and tax. Spend and spend. Elect and elect. What a platform! Too bad she has no skills and cannot support herself.

The Justice Department Monday warned former special counsel Robert Mueller that his upcoming congressional testimony should not stray from the written conclusions outlined in the 448-page final report of the two-year investigation into Russian election interference. "Any testimony must remain within the boundaries of your public report because matters within the scope of your investigation were covered by executive privilege, including information protected by law enforcement...and presidential communications privileges," Associate Deputy Attorney General Bradley Weinsheimer wrote in a two-page letter to Mueller two days before his scheduled testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

The Democrat Party’s open borders, mass immigration platform for the upcoming 2020 presidential election is turning off moderate Democrat voters, a new poll reveals. For months now, Democrats running in the presidential primary have largely presented platforms promoting amnesty for all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens, free health care for illegal aliens, and the decriminalization of illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border. This open borders agenda, spearheaded by a select group of white liberals in the party’s ranks, is causing a rift among Democrats. The latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll finds that a plurality of 47 percent of moderate Democrat voters say providing free health care

Far-left “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) spoke at the NAACP convention over the weekend and railed against the GOP tax cuts in a pitch for her anti-poverty BOOST Act, promising to take money from the rich and give it “back to the people that earned it.” Tlaib introduced her anti-poverty legislation – the Building Our Opportunities to Survive and Thrive (BOOST) Act – last month and spoke about it at the NAACP convention over the weekend. The proposal offers a guaranteed income – up to $6,000 per year – to families and individuals under certain financial thresholds via a “refundable tax credit that can be paid monthly.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said over the weekend that the United States government must have a “lifelong commitment” to illegal immigrant migrants separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border and provide “mental healthcare services” to them “for the rest of their lives.” Speaking at a town hall event in Queens, New York, Ocasio-Cortez, who has referred to migrant detention centers as “concentration camps,” reportedly argued that the U.S. government must make a “lifelong commitment” to migrant children because “even if you separate a kid from their parents for two days, you have already created life-long lasting trauma.”

Dear Daily Signal: Anyone who wants to understand why American political life is so debased should consider what socialist influences have done to our public schools; that’s my response to Jarrett Stepman’s commentary (“I Went to a Socialism Conference. Here Are My 6 Observations).” The promises are relentlessly upbeat and even humanistic. The reality is always more decay, more mediocrity, more people prevented from reaching their potential. My thesis is that public schools are the political reality served up billboard-size. Everyone can understand if they bother to look. For example, public schools claim to teach reading, but we have 50 million functional illiterates. That’s socialism in action, also known as liberalism,

CUMMINGS: "George, no matter where I go, what I'm hearing over and over again from my constituents is, "Please save our democracy. Please save our country." And you know something else they say, George? They say "I'm scared." I have never, in my total of 37 years in public service, ever heard a constituent say they were scared of their leader."

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, one of the two dozen Democrats competing for the party's presidential nomination, said President Trump is weaponizing racial animus to sow division in the country for his own political gain. "He is somebody that is using race like a weapon to divide our country against itself," Booker said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. "He's been using it since before he became president as a way to accelerate his gaining of political power." The New Jersey Democrat was referring to the president's recent attacks against four progressive lawmakers of color. Last week, Mr. Trump posted a series of racist tweets suggesting that Reps.

The Republican National Committee raised more than twice as much as the Democratic National Committee in June – $20.7 million compared to the DNC’s $8.5 million, according to Federal Election Commission filings, Politico reported. “Our record-smashing fundraising haul is a testament to the ongoing enthusiasm for President Trump and the pro-growth agenda that is delivering for every American across this country," GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement to Fox News last week. The RNC currently has $43.5 million, more than double the cash on hand as the DNC’s $9.3 million. The DNC spent heavily on events related to the debates and the presidential candidates last month,

Something's changed about Ted Cruz – and it’s not just the beard. First, there was the common ground with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Then, there was the push for people to donate supplies to detained migrants at the border. Then, Cruz called out Tennessee for honoring a Confederate Army general with an ugly past. Is the senator from Texas – the unapologetic conservative who ran for president in 2016 saying Republicans win by painting “in bold colors, not pale pastels”– making a conscious effort to expand his appeal beyond conservatives? “I do think it’s intentional,” said Brendan Steinhauser, a Republican consultant based in Austin who was active in the Tea Party movement.

The Democrats intend to steal the presidency in 2020. It is the only way they can “win.” They’ve learned this. They’ve lived it. And without a decisive turnout in 2020 they believe they have mastered the process. If you thought that Bush vs. Gore, or the Georgia and Florida 2018 recounts were ugly, keep your powder dry. 2020 will be the worst yet. All the signs point to this, assuming they can actually find a candidate. Once they do however, the largest scale assault on our free elections ever attempted will be unleashed.

If we are wanting to continue to play this influential role on the international stage it will require further funding for our armed forces, not least the Royal Navy.

Oregon students will be allowed to take “mental health days” off from school, just as they would sick days, under a new bill signed by the governor. The bill would allow excused school absences for mental or behavioral health and is a victory for youth activists — who also unsuccessfully fought for gun control and lowering the voting age. The students behind the measure say it’s meant to change the stigma around mental health in a state that has some of the United States’ highest suicide rates.

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday warned that an economic crash was coming and said she had a plan to stop it. Pointing to high debt and a sagging manufacturing sector, Ms. Warren said the economy teeters on the edge of disaster. “The country’s economic foundation is fragile. A single shock could bring it all down. And the Trump administration’s reckless behavior is increasing the odds of just such a shock,” the Massachusetts Democrat wrote in an op-ed in Medium. The alarm took a swipe at the strong economy that is President Trump’s chief argument for reelection. It also highlighted Ms. Warren’s agenda of wealth redistribution.
