Several hundred people are already lined up for Trump’s re-election announcement rally in Orlando, which starts tomorrow at 8pm. One man I spoke with arrived at 2am, 42 hours early. Many have tents and plan to stay in line all night (and stuck out a thunderstorm earlier today) pic.twitter.com/icLQWJUVX1
Ocasio-Cortez falsely claims Trump is operating concentration camps, compares the situation to the Holocaust: “The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. … ‘Never Again’ means something … we need to do something about it” pic.twitter.com/F2MmZ8y2dT
Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action Agenda at the Simon Wiesenthal Center Rabbi Abraham Cooper called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) comparing immigration detention centers on the border to concentration camps an “insult to victims of the Shoah.”
In a June 17 Instagram live stream, Ocasio-Cortez said that “the United States is running concentration camps on our southern border” and that she wanted to “talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘Never Again’ means something.”
Ocasio-Cortez defended her remarks in tweets on Tuesday stating that “concentration camps are not the same as death camps.”
What do you do when you’ve buried yourself up to your neck in a grave you dug? Well, when you’re Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, you grab another shovel and go to town.
What conscience would that be? The one that tells her it’s not only acceptable but morally right to invoke the Holocaust to score the cheapest of political points and then try to gaslight everyone who called you out on it?
A new poll shows President Trump is surging in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, slicing into the lead of former Vice President Joe Biden, who is currently leading the Democratic field by a large margin. Additionally, the poll shows the two men in a statistical dead heat in Michigan
The Firehouse-Optimus poll, conducted from June 11-13, shows Trump with a tremendous surge in Pennsylvania; Biden had an eight-point lead in March that has narrowed to a scant one-point lead. The Trump “base” in Pennsylvania has a huge lead over the Democratic “base.” Trump’s stands at 42%, dwarfing the Democrats’, which is at 24%. The poll adds, “This is a recurring trend across states- those who say they will vote for Trump are very consistent across ballot tests, while many Democratic-leaning voters fluctuate between supporting the Democrat, a generic third-party candidate, or not being sure.”
Since March, Biden’s lead over Trump in Wisconsin has shrunk from 12 percentage points to six. The Trump “base” in Wisconsin, according to the poll, rests at 37%; the Democratic “base” stands at 32%. Trump’s approval rating has risen from 41% to 44% since March.
Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people…….
President Donald Trump said Monday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will begin mass deportations of illegal immigrants starting next week.
The president indicated that ICE intends on attempting to remove the millions of illegal immigrants currently residing in the U.S. According to a Pew Research Center study released last week, 10.5 million “unauthorized” immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2017.
“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump tweeted late Monday night. “They will be removed as fast as they come in.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has taken aim at “shrieking Republicans” who criticized her for comparing border facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border to concentration camps.
The freshman New Yorker made the shocking claim during an Instagram broadcast on Monday night and then doubled down Tuesday morning on Twitter.
“This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying,” she tweeted.
“This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis.”
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden says that the way he would deal with Senate Republicans who oppose his agenda is with a “brass knuckle fight,” later adds: “Let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it” pic.twitter.com/GQPmDGxJpo
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to suggest using violence against Republicans on Monday in response to a question about how he as president would deal with opposition to his agenda in the Senate from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Biden, currently the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, made the remarks at the Moral Action Congress of the Poor People’s Campaign in Washington, D.C.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Biden: “How would you get past either a majority Republican Senate in which Mitch McConnell was determined to kill all of these ideas or even a Mitch McConnell in the minority who repeated the consistent filibustering when you were vice president and anything that came from the Obama-Biden administration Mitch McConnell considered dead on arrival?”
Can someone PLEASE get @AOC a history book, so she can learn what the concentration camps were like? Comparing our border’s centers to camps where millions were GASSED TO DEATH is reckless and utterly false pic.twitter.com/g3I9BkLdWq
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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
