Ocasio-Cortez: Government Is Operating “Concentration Camps” On Border

She is literally nuts.

Via Twitchy:

Just when you think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex can’t get any dumber or more awful.

We’ve said it before we’ll say it again, she’s GOT to be trolling.

From The Daily Mail:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has slammed ‘fascist’ Donald Trump’s immigration policy, saying his administration is operating ‘concentration camps on our southern border.’

The Democratic Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district streamed a live Q&A with her Instagram followers on Monday, in which she doubled down on her criticism of the government’s crackdown on asylum seekers and migrants.

‘That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,’ Ocasio-Cortez said during the live-stream.

Ilhan Omar Blames Trump For Iran-Linked Attacks On Oil Tankers

Via Fox News:

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, is placing blame on President Trump for last Thursday’s attacks on two oil tankers, which the U.S. has linked to Iran.

“None of this would be happening if Trump didn’t back out of the Iran nuclear deal,” Omar tweeted. “America’s response should be to return to the table and reinstate the Iran nuclear deal. Increasing tensions and threats of war serve nobody’s interests.”

President Trump declared Iran was responsible for the attacks in the Gulf of Oman, pointing to video released by the U.S. Navy showing an Iranian vessel removing an unexploded mine.

Ocasio-Cortez Unleashes Lawyer On Campaign Aide Who Penned Memoir

Picking on the little guy because she’s not getting a cut out of it. Bad socialist.

Via NY Post:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unleashed her lawyer on a former campaign aide who wrote a book about her victory over former Congressman Joseph Crowley.

Ocasio-Cortez’s legal counsel sent a cease and desist letter to Latino activist Ramon Ramirez for his self-published memoir titled “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: The Democrats’ Surprise.”

“I’m surprised,” Ramirez told The Post about receiving the legal threat. “I didn’t say anything against her. I never said anything against her agenda.”

The author added that he only sold “about 160 books.”

The cease and desist letter claims that “The Democrats’ Surprise” and a second book Ramirez has written, “seek to profit off the Congresswoman’s name and likeness, without her involvement or permission.”

Schiff: Evidence of Iran Being Behind Tanker Attacks Is ‘Very Strong’

He knows Iran’s behind it but he still tries to blame Trump for pulling out of the Iran Deal.

Via Free Beacon:

Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, admitted Sunday that intelligence proves Iranian responsibility for the recent tanker attacks.

Schiff said the evidence is “very strong and compelling” that Iran is behind the attacks on oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz, putting him in line with the administration on the facts of the case.

“There’s no question that Iran is behind the attacks. I think the evidence is very strong and compelling,” he said. “This was a class-A screw-up by Iran to insert a mine on the ship. It didn’t detonate. They had to go back and retrieve it. I can imagine there are some Iranian heads rolling for that botched operation.”

However, he said this “solid evidence” was not enough to get buy-in on a united response by the U.S. and its allies. He said America is “isolated” on account of the administration’s policies, and even blamed those policies for Iran’s assaults on commercial transports.

Trump Withholds Aid To Central American Countries For Not Doing Enough To Curb Immigration

Tariff threat produced results, let’s see if this does.

Via Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump is officially withholding hundreds of millions in U.S. aid to three Central American countries as punishment for being much of the source of the current illegal immigration crisis.

The White House informed Congress Monday that it will permanently divert $370 million in aid to El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, according to Reuters. That money was previously approved by Congress for fiscal year 2018, but had not yet been used.

Trump is not stopping there. The administration is also suspending $180 million that was approved in fiscal year 2017 that had not yet been spent.

The president’s decision to withhold aid to Central America’s Northern Triangle countries come as the immigration crisis continues to escalate.

State Department Identifies 23 Violations, ‘Multiple Security Incidents’ Concerning Clinton Emails

And they’re only getting to this now? And then not naming anyone.

Via Fox News:

The State Department revealed Monday that it has identified “multiple security incidents” involving current or former employees’ handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails, and that 23 “violations” and seven “infractions” have been issued as part of the department’s ongoing investigation.

The information came in a letter to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, who is responsible for overseeing the security review.

“To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents,” Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department’s Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs, wrote to Grassley. “DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents. … This number will likely change as the review progresses.”

The State Department, calling the matter “serious,” said it expected to conclude the investigation by Sept. 1. The department acknowledged that the probe was unusually time-consuming.

“Given the volume of emails provided to the Department from former Secretary Clinton’s private email server, the Department’s process has been necessarily more complicated and complex requiring a significant dedication of time and resources,” Taylor wrote.

Taylor also noted that disciplinary consequences were pending.

Pentagon Approves Sending 1,000 More Troops To Mideast As US Releases New Photos Of Tanker Attack Linked To Iran

Meanwhile, many on the left taking Iran’s side. Unreal.

Via Fox News:

U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) released new images Monday showing the aftermath of mine attacks against two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week, including some images purporting to show Iranian forces removing an unexploded device from the hull of one of the vessels.

Hours later, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said he had approved a request from CENTCOM to send approximately 1,000 additional troops to the Middle East “to address air, naval, and ground-based threats” in the region.

“The recent Iranian attacks validate the reliable, credible intelligence we have received on hostile behavior by Iranian forces and their proxy groups that threaten United States personnel and interests across the region,” Shanahan said. “The United States does not seek conflict with Iran. The action today is being taken to ensure the safety and welfare of our military personnel working throughout the region and to protect our national interests.”

Broadway Play About Clintons to Close One Month Early Due To Low Ticket Sales

People still aren’t interested in her in any form.

Via Free Beacon:

The Broadway production of a play about Bill and Hillary Clinton talking frankly about her 2008 presidential campaign will close a month ahead of schedule, due to low ticket sales.

Starring Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow, Hillary and Clinton was set to close on July 21 but will instead close June 23. It cost $4.2 million to produce.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Hillary and Clinton is not based on the real Clintons, but instead characters with the same name in an alternate universe,” and its early closing is linked to “underwhelming ticket sales.” Set in a New Hampshire hotel room during that state’s 2008 Democratic primary, it touches on marriage and sexism in politics.

O.J. Simpson’s Twitter Account Threatens Man With Knife Emojis

The parody account took video so it appears real. Crazy.

Via NY Post:

O.J. Simpson’s Twitter account sent a series of menacing direct messages — including a string of 16 knife emojis and the warning that “I WILL FIND YOUR ASS AND CUT YOU” — to a parody account that skewers the disgraced football star over his acquittal in the 1994 slayings of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

The shocking threats were contained in a pair of videos posted on the “@KillerOJSimpson” Twitter page on Monday, which also marked the 25th anniversary of the infamous slow-speed police chase of a white Ford Bronco that ended with Simpson’s arrest on murder charges.

The videos show seven direct messages sent to @KillerOJSimpson, whose parody account features a crudely doctored profile photo of Simpson grinning while holding a butcher knife in a black-gloved hand.

Ocasio-Cortez Devastated In New Poll From Inside Her District

She’s so busy tweeting, she may not fully get this.

Via Daily Wire:

A new poll from inside socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) 14th congressional district has found that among registered voters, the far-left congresswoman is deeply unpopular.

The door-to-door poll from Stop The AOC PAC yielded the following key results:

They don’t like her. She has a more than 2:1 ratio of unfavorable (50.88%) to favorable (21.37%) in public opinion.

They don’t trust her. Only 10.75% thought she had their best interests in mind in quashing the Amazon deal – 32.60% said she didn’t.

They don’t want her. 33.44% are ready to vote against her, and only 13.30% would vote for her.

Supreme Court Tosses Ruling Against Bakers Who Refused Cake For Gay Couple

The fine is tossed but the Court punted on the merits.

Via Fox News:

The Supreme Court on Monday threw out a ruling against two Oregon bakers who refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple.

The couple, Melissa and Aaron Klein, cited religious beliefs as their reason for not providing services for a gay wedding. This touched off the latest in a series of such cases making headlines in recent years. During the court’s last term, justices ruled in favor of a Colorado baker in a similar situation, stating that a state body demonstrated improper hostility toward the baker’s religion in finding that he violated a state anti-discrimination law.

On Monday, the Supreme Court sent the Klein case back down to a lower court “for further consideration in light of” their Colorado decision.

The central disputes in the case — which pits LGBT rights against religious freedom considerations — have yet to be addressed by the Supreme Court.

Al-Qaeda Congratulates Taliban For Defeating U.S. In Afghanistan With Faith In Allah….

The Taliban won?

Via LWJ:

Asim Umar, a senior al Qaeda official, has released a lengthy statement praising the Taliban’s “victory” in Afghanistan. He claims that America’s “defeat” proves that its superior technology is no match for the jihadists’ faith, adding that America’s army no longer wants to fight.

Umar has served as the emir of Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), but it appears he may no longer hold that title. In another recent message, AQIS identified Usama Mahmood as its overall commander. Mahmood was previously the group’s spokesman and likely had other responsibilities within the group as well.

However, while Umar’s current position isn’t clear, he is obviously still a senior figure within al Qaeda. Umar’s new message, titled “And on that day the believers will rejoice,” was released by As Sahab earlier today to mark the occasion of Eid–ul–Fitr. As Sahab, which is the media arm for both al Qaeda’s senior leadership and AQIS, produced versions of Umar’s statement in Arabic, English and Urdu. The English-language transcript can be read here.

“May Allah make the victories of The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan a source of bringing back the honor and dignity of the Ummah,” Umar says at the beginning of his message. “We on behalf of the sub-continent …give congratulations for these victories to Amir-ul-Momineen, Sheikh Hibatullah Akhundzada, Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahiri and the leaders of the Mujahidin and the Mujahidin present in the fields of Jihad all-around the world.”
