A few days ago Rob Smith wrote an article for Human Events about his recent testimony (early February) on Capital Hill, as a guest of representatives Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan. Rob is a United States Army veteran, Turning Point USA contributor, and political analyst.
In other words, he’s fairly accomplished for a guy that looks like he’s 20-nothing. Oh, and did I mention he’s a black conservative? (That’s an Uncle Tom for you leftists).
I shouldn’t need to mention what shade he is, but I did – just in case any leftist, identity politicians are reading this. Because as we know, leftists are all and only about skin color and gender.
Anywho, Rob was telling the distinguished House members (almost choked on those words) about his life story thus far – how he pulled himself up by his “bootstraps” instead of wallowing in self pity and remaining on government assistance. read more
This is what you get when you all pushed your party further and further left – blowing past liberalism and progressivism to socialism/communism. What did you think was going to happen as you promoted and gave a stage to a 29 year old Bernie Sanders.
The democrat party aligned itself with radical academia and arrogantly thought it could control whatever progeny sprung forth. And now you have to live with the result of their handiwork.
Ocasio-Cortez is just doing exactly what she was taught to do. Use other people’s money to further her own ends and bury anyone who stands in her way.
Your Frankenstein monster lives and she’s coming to your district to incite mayhem and destruction.
And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch.

The Squad Becomes the Untouchables
Rashida, Ilhan, and AOC are more immune to criticism than even Obama was
When I first heard that Donald Trump went after Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (I had not heard of Ayanna Pressley), I immediately expressed gratitude that someone had the guts to push back. These three congresswomen are unhinged, a fact further revealed a week earlier in the “testimony” of a brazen AOC and a half-sobbing, ready-to-burst Tlaib. The depth of the radicalism of the AOC-Tlaib-Omar troika, in full display after only a few months in Congress, is difficult to express. read more

Big Banks Cave to Pressure From AOC
Seeking to appease progressive lawmakers, banks turn their backs on the law — and common sense.
SunTrust, a bank holding company centered in the southeastern U.S., announced on Monday that it will terminate its business relationship with CoreCivic, a leading American private prison and detention center company. The announcement was accompanied by a statement claiming that SunTrust’s decision was “made after extensive consideration of the views of our stakeholders on this deeply complex issue.”
SunTrust is the fourth major bank to exit the private corrections industry, following Bank of America in late June and JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo in March. These U.S. financial institutions ignore their contractual obligations in favor of tailoring their business dealings to the whims of progressives in Congress.
A three judge panel of the 2nd district Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that President Trump cannot block his Twitter followers just because they post critical or divisive comments. I agree. The president uses his @RealDonaldTrump account for public and policy statements – not just for personal issues as a private citizen. As he uses this public forum for government business, blocking the public would be in violation of the followers’ First Amendment rights.
That being “settled,” it will be interesting if leftist radical Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is treated the same, as a lawsuit was recently filed to force AOC to unblock those who have been critical of her.

Nurse AOC Gets to Pick Democrats’ Presidential Winners and Losers
Healthcare remains the number one issue and again Republicans aren’t in the game.
Medicare for All may sound good,” John Delaney, a former Maryland congressman running for president, told the California Democratic Convention, “but it’s actually not good policy, nor is it good politics.”
The crowd booed, lengthily and lustily, as they had booed former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper for informing them that “socialism is not the answer.”
The enfant terrible of the Democratic Party quickly responded through the medium preferred by enfants terrible. read more

AOC to Bartend for a Day to Advocate Policies That Closed Former Employer
New York City’s increased minimum wage drove AOC’s former employer out of business
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, N.Y.) is set to bartend again for a day to advocate for policies that led to one of her former employers shutting down its business.
The freshman congresswoman will return to her district in New York City this Friday to “pour a few pints” and push for the federal Raise the Wage Act while showing support for “abolishing below-minimum wage” for tipped workers in the state, the New York Daily News reports. The exact location of the event, which was organized by the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, a New York-based nonprofit that advocates for increased pay through its ONE FAIR WAGE campaign, will be announced later. read more

A Texas Republican Congressman, Will Hurd, has an idea to run fiber optic cable from one end of the country to the other, under ground, to detect people crossing our border illegally. This is in lieu of, or instead of a border wall.
Great plan. The cable won’t stop anyone from crossing, but will simply alert border patrol that someone, or group of someones has.
The “Green New Deal” that AOC and others have proposed is nothing more than a new communist manifesto. It’s not Democratic or any other kind of socialism. It’s straight-up communism. And what does their economic program have to do with global warming? Absolutely nothing. read more
For the longest time I thought Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), or maybe Hank Johnson (D-GA) were the dumbest people in Congress. I starting to rethink that position the more Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez opens her mouth, and she’s not even in Congress yet. Here’s another gem.
