Appearing on MSNBC, AOC blasted fellow Democrat Senator Manchin over his support for the filibuster, saying it has conservative lobby groups “doing a victory lap.”

“HR 1 stands up against lobbyists and dark money. I would reckon to think that this is probably just as much a part of Joe Manchin’s calculus as anything else. Because when it comes to this bipartisan argument – I don’t buy it,” AOC said.

“Cause you look at the Koch Brothers and organizations like, you know, the Heritage Foundation and conservative lobby groups that are doing a victory lap, claiming victory over the fact that Manchin refuses to change on the filibuster,” she continued. “And I think that these two things are very closely intertwined.”

“Joe Manchin has voted on bills that are not bipartisan,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “There are those of us who acknowledge the existential threat and assault on to right to vote, and how they’re [Republicans] putting the pieces together at the state level, in Georgia, Florida and elsewhere, and how it’s being pieced together federally.”

AOC tweeted Monday:

Just thinking about how after this photo ran Wall Street Journal columnists spent more time criticizing me for not smiling enough than asking Manchin precisely what areas of “common ground” he had in mind when he stood up for the GOP.

Turns out voter suppression was one of them!

‘Straight into ENEMY FIRE’: Dick Durbin plays D-Day card when discussing… Dem plan to end FILIBUSTER?!

Published

on

There is more hyperbole in the Senate than there are GRAINS OF SAND IN THE KNOWN OR UNKNOWN UNIVERSE. But sometimes it goes beyond ridiculous exaggeration and achieves “blatantly offensive.” Something known to happen especially in the case of one Dick Durbin, dramatist and self-regard enthusiast.

Here, Durbin is discussing the dumb Democrat plan to eradicate the filibuster and achieve ultimate power (for a while, until they aren’t the majority) and rather than realizing his shortsightnedness, he ups the debate about a hundred notches from its already absurdly high level of rhetoric and invokes the Greatest Generation and their sacrifices at one of history’s most significant military actions: D-Day.

Really, Dick? Tyranny? Running straight into enemy fire? PRESERVE DEMOCRACY?

It is better, folks, to not invoke Hitler or the troops or dying in battle or, you know, any MAXIMUM MOMENT when you’re talking about something like senate procedures. You can’t go around claiming you want to “cool” the “rhetoric” and be “bipartisan” when you’re assigning people to the roles of Nazi and Liberator in your little Risk-inspired passion play. Okay?

GOP Congressman Carl supports pending resolution to remove Omar from committee assignments

Published

on

Alabama Republican Rep. Jerry Carl told Just the News on Monday that he supports an upcoming resolution to remove Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from her committee assignments after a recent statement in which she appeared to equate the U.S. and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban. 

Carl said House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy is expected to introduce the resolution this week.

Omar wrote on Twitter last week about “unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.” 

She later attempted to clarify her statement saying she was “in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries.” Omar has received backlash in the past about some of her remarks related to Israel.

Carl said Omar’s latest statement was not a gaffe.

“If she said it once, that would be a gaffe. I mean, we all make those as elected officials and hang on every word, but she’s taken a stab at the America as a country several times. She doesn’t like America, she doesn’t like Christianity,” he said during “Just the News AM” on Monday.

“Kevin McCarthy will bring it up this week,” he also said. “We’ll see if we can push it for a vote and see if we can get her voted off her committee. She has no business on that committee if she’s going to be that radical. She needs to be protesting somewhere, not in Washington, D.C.”

Omar is a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the House Education and Labor Committee. 

“The Democrat Party is protecting her. My question is, the Jewish members and Democrat Party, how are they going to respond if we can get it on the floor for a vote? I think it would be very hard to support her, very hard. I couldn’t imagine why they would want to knowing that she has, you know, spoken such atrocities to their entire culture,” Carl said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked on Friday whether she thinks further action is needed against Omar as a result of her controversial statement.

“I don’t,” she replied. 

Pelosi said she’s not concerned about the divide her statement might cause within the Democratic Party.

“I think that she clarified her remarks  … and we accepted that. And she has a point that she wants to make and she has a right to make that point,” she said. “There was some unease about how it was interpreted.  She made her clarification.”

Carl revealed that he will support McCarthy’s resolution when it is formally introduced. 

“I would love to; I would jump on that in a heartbeat. I couldn’t imagine anyone not whether you’re Republican or Democrat, I mean, she sealed her own fate when she spoke it, not once, but several times,” he said.

Carl pointed out that it will take more than McCarthy and the Republicans to remove Omar from her committee assignments.

“But there are people within the Democrat Party that can encourage and force her to do it. Pelosi is doing what Pelosi has always done. She’ll cover for her own. She’s done a very good job of it and on the other hand, when a Republican gets out of line, it’s just pure attack attack attack,” he said. “So we’ve got to hold her feet to the fire on this one. I think we have every right to, I think, as a Christian nation; I think as a Jewish nation.”

Ilhan Omar retweeted video by anti-Israel group previously probed by FBI

Published

on

Representative Ilhan Omar retweeted a video produced by the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), an anti-Israel organization that was investigated by the FBI for possible links to terrorism.

In the video, people are carrying a child and someone can be heard saying in English, “What are you doing to him? It’s a little child!” 

According to Fox News, the video shows Israeli police carrying a Palestinian child.

“It is clear, however, that the FBI conducted at least two major investigations into ISM. In addition to the international terrorism investigation into the two St. Louis activists, the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office initiated a domestic security investigation into ISM as an organization,” The Intercept noted last year. “Nothing in the documents suggests any of these investigations ever resulted in criminal charges,” The Intercept reported.

This Palestinian child carrying his Spider-Man school backpack violently snatched and detained by Israeli forces.His wriggling is too painful to watch, but sure tell this brutalized child that @SecBlinken says he can claim justice from his abusers.pic.twitter.com/mNpVMqbiqj— Marwa Fatafta مروة فطافطة #SaveSheikhJarrah (@marwasf) June 8, 2021
