After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi caved to the Squad and stripped $1 billion in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system from a budget bill, the House on Thursday voted overwhelmingly to pass a bipartisan stand-alone bill to fund it.

The usual small coterie of far-left anti-Semites opposed the bill, couching it as opposition to (as Rep. Rashida Tlaib put it) enabling and supporting “war crimes, human rights abuses and violence.” FYI: the Iron Dome is a purely defensive system that intercepts terrorist missiles fired by Hamas at Israeli civilians. I’m not sure how it’s a “war crime” to prevent terrorists from blowing up Jewish children.

In a remarkable sideshow to the vote, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proved once again that while her ideas on politics and economics may be stunningly stupid, she’s a genius at media manipulation. It was reported that she planned to vote “no” along with her fellow anti-Semitic radical colleagues, but when the time came, she voted “Present,” likely because she didn’t want that “no” on her record – especially not if she has to deal with a newly redrawn district that will contain more Jewish voters.

HOWEVER...AOC did treat us to a prime slice of hammy political theater. Check out the video of her after the bill passed, showing her “crying” and hugging a colleague as she dabs away her tears. Also note how she walked up next to another Representative who was speaking at the time, which “coincidentally” ensured that her theatrical tears were nationally-televised. Madonna couldn’t have done it better (to cite another great media manipulator who also reminds us of Evita Peron.)

But as the writer Bonchie at Redstate.com asks, WHY was she crying? Was that meant to show us how upset she is at all those alleged war crimes and human rights violations that Israel commits in defending itself against terrorists that want to wipe it off the face of the Earth? Because the only other explanations are (A.) she’s upset that Hamas missiles won’t be able to blow up Israeli children, or (B.) she’s upset about Congress spending a billion dollars. Which of those explanations seems less likely to you?

    She cries because Israel wants to defend themselves, yet celebrates when a woman wants to kill her inconvenient baby... Democrats truly have become the Party of death!

    B ofcourse Sir...she is a snake in the grass a shameful Congress woman who is just an airhead the marble in her head is not centered....Another thing Sir, I understand you are a good friend of the 45th President. Please kindly advice him to stop making noises just leave everything to God as you can seek God works in mysterious ways unknown to Men. President Trump should make less noise and trust in God and leave everything to God. "Trust in God and pray for the goodness to come for America....now badly damaged by Biden and the rest of his rat team....the more noises he made the more the citizens dislike him. Instead he should go out and canvass in cities and towns where the real Americans are instead of making noises ovder microphones. Real Amderican and all those who loves America will appreciate it more if he could spend more time meeting them and having as many town hall get to meet the people more often instead of asking for donations; granted that money is needed but his real value is meeting the people and talking and asking them what is happening do the real American like to see the continuation of America by the Demon crates. Really sir get to talk to that thickheaded 45th President and have him next time really spend time with the Asian leaders as by now he had lost touch with every Asian allies.
