Today's Edition: 6 minute read


Back in mid-March, I featured a commentary about a video presentation called “The Brains Behind AOC,” about the sudden rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thanks to a radical leftist group called Justice Democrats. It showed that she had been recruited by that organization through an “audition” of sorts to track down –- from a field of about 10,000 –- the most engaging face of radical leftism they could find. JD had other candidates in its stable as well, some of whom had already won primaries in their heavily-Democrat districts and, of course, had gone on to be elected (as Nancy Pelosi has said, there are districts in which a glass of water with a “D” next to its name could get elected), and others who were being groomed to mount primary challenges in 2020 against relatively moderate Democrats.

When “The Squad” of four far-left congresswomen went before cameras on Monday, spouting vague pronouncements of racism and xenophobia and outright lies about border facilities, ICE and President Trump, it occurred to me: these four individuals have something huge in common: they were all backed by the same socialist organization, Justice Democrats. Just to double-check, I went to their website and, sure enough, at the very top of their home page is a graphic featuring images of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of the 14th District of New York, Ayanna Pressley of the 7th District of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaid of the 13th District of Michigan, and (last but not least) Ilhan Omar of the 5th District of Minnesota. “The Squad.”


With gratitude,

    ICE facility non media coverage:
    Why Leftist Media Machine didnt cover:
    Antifa leader shot, killed
    Strike failed.
    Cops on alert.
    Media Machine loses out.

    I'm still amazed and how much press/airtime the media gives these four darlings. However, the statement that still has me stumped is one by Elizabeth Warren--likening the centers at the borders to jails/prisons/concentration camps because the children where walking in a single-file line. Don't walk in any elementary schools across the nation. You just might see the same thing going on. Kids like order. No one is mistreating these children. They aren't being abused by us. They are being well-fed, clothed, and treated for any illnesses they might have. They are getting to sleep in a bed with a solid roof over their heads. I'd challenge "The Squad" to spend a day in a center not criticizing what is going on but rolling up their sleeves and helping the staff care for these children. Put a few of your own dollars in the till to feed them and buy them shoes. Let these children crawl up in your lap and offer them some hugs. If you really think it's "so bad"--be the change. Oh but're too busy NOT running the government because you are running your mouth.
