Rashida Tlaib Says She Was "Afraid" of Americans After 9/11

Democratic Congresswoman says post-September 11 atmosphere made her “angry”

 | Infowars.com – APRIL 26, 2019

Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib says she was “afraid” of her fellow Americans after 9/11 and that their reaction to the terror attacks made her “angry”.

In an interview with Makers, Tlaib said; “I was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened and I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time”.

“I immediately called my brothers and told them to be very careful who you hang out with, telling my sisters, you know, just be real careful out there,” said Tlaib, who emphasized that she was “really afraid of my fellow Americans” after the attack.

The Democratic Congresswoman said the whole experience made her “angry” and more determined to become involved in politics.

Quite how Tlaib thought she was the victim after the slaughter of thousands of Americans by Islamic extremists is not elaborated upon in the interview.

Amy Mek posted the interview alongside footage (confirmed to be accurate) of Palestinians celebrating in the streets on the day of 9/11.

Tlaib has repeatedly emphasized her pride in her Palestinian heritage, which some have cited to accuse her of being a closet Islamist.

While no one is suggesting that Tlaib was glad 9/11 happened, her bizarre comments about the attack are on a par with Rep. Ilhan Omar’s equally absurd statement when she described the terror outrage as “some people (who) did something”.

Tlaib has repeatedly defended Omar, suggesting that criticism of her statement is akin to inciting violence.

Rashida Tlaib Wants Hunger Strikes to Shut Down ICE

Rashida Tlaib Hunger Strike ICE

By 

Freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib recently told supporters they need to do more than protest on social media, and cited others who are going as far as hunger strikes to convince Republicans to back down.

While speaking to supporters at a fundraiser earlier this week, Tlaib said it is the responsibility of Americans to “shut down” Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, and convince Republicans to forego any type of border security.

“It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress, rooms outside the White House,” said Tlaib, “I want you all to shut them down. We can shut them down. Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.”

Realizing how strange this must sound to those listening, she went on to expand on her command.

“I know what they’re going to say to me, ‘What do you mean, Rashida?’ Well I’ll tell you,” she said. “There are some people that are using hunger strikes, all these other things.”

She also told her supporters she was planning on “going to the border” and encouraged them to do the same, though she did not explain what this will do to impact policy decisions made in Washington, D.C.

Tlaib, who shares a blood relation with her ex husband, is apparently only interested in the human rights of illegal aliens, and not homosexuals from around the world.

Last week, she refused to condemn the horrifying policy in the Muslim theocracy of Brunei, which will now punish homosexual acts by stoning homosexuals to death in a public setting.

Neither Tlaib, or her fellow Muslim congresswoman Rep. Ilhan Omar, would condemn the barbaric, brutal, and morally reprehensible homophobic policy.

RASHIDA TLAIB HOSTS ANOTHER EXTREME ANTI-ISRAEL, TERROR-AFFILIATED ACTIVIST ON CAPITOL HILL

By Molly Prince

  • Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib met with members of the anti-Israel organization American Muslims for Palestine during an advocacy event they hosted on Capitol Hill.

  • Tlaib was photographed after sitting down with Joe Catron, an extreme anti-Israel activist and outspoken terrorist supporter.

  • Tlaib’s time in congressional office has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism.

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib met with another extreme anti-Israel activist and terrorist-supporter in her Capitol Hill congressional office during American Muslims for Palestine Advocacy Day in mid-April.

American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) hosted the annual advocacy and training event, which was open to all adults who “seek justice in Palestine.” Additional criteria for participation includes supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) describes the BDS movement as “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence” and has further criticized AMP for promoting anti-Semitism under the guise of educating Americans. AMP hailed the ADL’s anti-Israel description of its organization.

Tlaib spoke to AMP on April 8 where she told the group that she feels “more Palestinian” when she is in Congress than she does elsewhere, according to The Investigative Project On Terrorism, who first reported on the meeting.

AMP’s New Jersey chapter posted a photograph of Tlaib outside of her office with some of its members during the event, including Joe Catron, an avowed supporter of multiple Palestinian terrorist organizations. (RELATED: America’s First Two Muslim Congresswomen Will Both Be Fundraising For Hamas-Linked Organization)

Catron is a long-time extreme anti-Israel activist and has openly supported terrorist organizations. He serves as the U.S. coordinator of Samidoun, the Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network. Samidoun is an affiliate arm of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a Palestinian Marxist–Leninist and revolutionary socialist organization. The United States designated PFLP a terrorist organization in 1997, and Australia, Japan, Canada and the European Union shortly followed suit.

Catron’s cover photo on both of his personal Twitter and Facebook accounts is a montage of a PFLP fighter donned in the organization’s official logo, as well as rockets and soldiers pointed towards a target over the state of Israel. It also displays the Arabic phrase “If you do [more attacks on Gaza] we will do [as well], hell is waiting for you.” The phrase is attributed to Mohammad Deif, the supreme military commander of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing.

Moreover, the feature image on his social media accounts are of himself posed alongside Leila Khaled, a member of PFLP who is a known Palestinian terrorist most notable for hijacking airplanes.

After PFLP murdered an Israeli policewoman in 2017 during a terrorist attack in Jerusalem, Catron posted PFLP’s official statement on his social media and referred to the event as “heroic.” The attack was described by the PFLP as a “blood oath” to Palestinians, and the organization echoed the Hamas war cry to eradicate Israel.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘I Support Impeaching This President’

By Pam Key

Sunday on Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) argued there were “so many” reasons to impeach President Donald Trump.

Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think you could reach in a bag and pull so many things out that are impeachable of this president. I support impeaching this president.”

When asked why she thought the president should be impeached, Ocasio-Cortez said  “Number one is emoluments. I think it’s always been emoluments. It’s always been about that for me.”

She continued, “I think two would be tax fraud.”

She added, “I think emoluments kind of includes any misconduct, financial misconduct in relation to Russia.”

Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar REFUSE to Condemn Brunei’s Sharia-Directed Stoning of Homosexuals

Neither Congresswoman has spoken out about Brunei’s plan to stone homosexuals to death.

By

Two members of the House of Representatives, both Muslims, have refused to condemn the country of Brunei for implementation of the Sharia Penal code, which carries inhumane punishment for homosexuals.

Big League Politics reached out to the office of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), asking if the Congresswoman would condemn the Asian nation, which plans to implement capital punishment for citizens who are found guilty of homosexuality. Her office did not respond to a comment request.

Tlaib, who called to “impeach the motherf*****” in reference to President Donald J. Trump, wrapped herself in the Palestinian flag upon winning her seat in Congress, and has been known to traffic in anti-Semitism on social media.

Likewise, BLP reached out to Jeremy Slevin, spokesperson for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). He did not respond to our request, either. Omar came to the United States as a Somali refugee during her childhood.

Omar’s anti-Semitism caused a national outcry, for which Democrats decided to draft a resolution against all bigotry – except against white males. The party was eventually forced to condemn Omar by name.

Not only will Brunei legalize capital punishment for homosexuals, but it plans to make death by stoning the punishment. This not-so-progressive endeavor has been ignored by the new “progressives” in Congress.

Big League Politics reported:

Government documents reveal that in late December of 2018, the government of Brunei prepared to move forward after it criminalized homosexual acts in 2014. The next step for the small Asian country is to allow capital punishment of homosexuals.

While homosexual acts had already been illegal in the country since 2014, and had previously been criminalized in some form since the country existed under British rule, LGBT activists from around the world are cautioning that the country will soon allow “whippings and stoning to death” as punishment for those caught engaging in homosexuality, according to Gay Star News.

Gay Star News also reports that the Sultan of Brunei hoped to advance Sharia Penal Code in the country much more quickly, and was delayed after international uproar in 2014. Now, according to the website, the Brunei government is attempting to accomplish its goal of punishing homosexuals with barbaric deaths without the international community noticing.

Neither Congresswoman has made any announcement condemning such barbaric behavior, either formally or on social media.

The only religion on earth that enforces the death penalty against homosexuals is Islam.

CIVIL WAR: Democrat Elite Moves to Crush Grassroots Primary Challengers Before 2020

By Shane Trejo

The powers atop the Democratic Party are scared of socialist upstarts gaining steam and stopping the party from beating Trump next year

Screen Shot 2019-03-27 at 10.52.30 AM

The Democratic Party elite has seen enough of its young upstarts like Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-MA). They are purging firms and consultants that are willing to work with primary challengers against incumbent Democrats heading into 2020.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) announced last week that they are blacklisting any vendors from work in the party unless they agree to a loyalty oath of sorts indicating that they will not challenge incumbent Democrats.

The form reads as follows: “I understand the above statement that the DCCC will not conduct business with, nor recommend to any of its targeted campaigns, any consultant that works with an opponent of a sitting Member of the House Democratic Caucus.”

The Intercept published an op/ed written by a far-left activist detailing how the restrictive move from the party elite is creating fissures within the grassroots heading into 2020:

“Like many women in their 20s across America, I feel inexplicably hopeful and manifestly seen when I watch Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez take on the stale and insular political dynamics of Washington…

Ocasio-Cortez’s unapologetic energy in Washington cannot be separated from her decision to run against Joe Crowley in Queens, New York. Every action Ocasio-Cortez takes carries the same fearlessness that prompted her not to wait her turn…

Yet instead of embracing Ocasio-Cortez and the fresh path she has opened, the DCCC and other national “Democratic” organizations are wrapping their arms more tightly around the heavily white, male incumbent Democrats in Washington.

Between this and the disenfranchisement of Bernie Sanders supporters, the grassroots left is beginning to get the picture that the Democratic elite is not on their side. In fact, the Democratic brass treats their constituents in a similar manner that Republican leadership is known to treat theirs.

The New York Times received word in 2014, near the peak of the tea party phenomenon, that “top congressional Republicans and their allies” were working to “deny [Tea Party-backed candidates] any Senate primary victories, cut into their fund-raising and diminish them as a future force in Republican politics.”

“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said at the time, referring to tea party upstart primary challengers. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”

McConnell may have been arrogant but was not wrong in making his boast. With the one lone exception of libertarian economist Dave Brat upending Rep. Eric Cantor in Virginia, every single tea party challenger was put down in 2014. State senator Chris McDaniel came the closest to defeating incumbent Thad Cochran, but lost in a run-off election following extreme corruption. The movement would never quite recover.

“I know this: Politics doesn’t like losers. If you don’t have anything to point to, it is kind of hard to keep it going,” McConnell said of his opposition, kicking dirt into their face while they were down.

The Democratic Party elite hopes to replicate the success that the Republican Party bosses had during the Obama presidency in derailing their ascendant grassroots rebellion, but the far left is very much aware of what is happening and does not plan to go down lightly.

With the civil war ongoing for the soul of the Democratic Party, that does not bode well for their chances in 2020. The extremists in their midst will likely cause great division heading into the presidential election, and that has to be music to President Donald Trump’s ears.

NYT RUNS A STORY ABOUT AIPAC ACTIVIST. TURNS OUT, HE’S NOT ASSOCIATED WITH AIPAC, BUT THAT DIDN’T STOP OCASIO-CORTEZ FROM USING IT TO FUNDRAISE

By Molly Prince

CAP

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fundraised off a New York Times story claiming the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) sought to unseat her, but the AIPAC representative cited in the article was not part of the group.

“They are three people who, in my opinion, will not be around in several years,” Stephen Fiske told TheNYT, referring to Ocasio-Cortez and her progressive colleagues, Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.

Fiske, who TheNYT called “a longtime activist” with AIPAC was the keystone of the article, however, he confirmed to The Times of Israel on Friday that he has not been associated with the organization for several years. Rather, he’s the chairman of a pro-Israel PAC that has no affiliation with AIPAC.

Ocasio-Cortez sent out fundraising emails days after TheNYT’s March 4 article was published, claiming “It’s official — AIPAC is coming after Alexandria, Ilhan, and Rashida.”

AIPAC, which is not a political action committee and therefore doesn’t directly fund campaigns, deters donors from taking aim at incumbents in safe districts, such as those of Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Tlaib, according to The Times of Israel.

The battle against AIPAC was seemingly kicked off in February after Omar quote-tweeted a Haaretz article where House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy threatened punishment against Omar and Tlaib for their anti-Semitic rhetoric. Omar replied that Republicans’ support for Israel is bought by AIPAC, perpetuating an ages-old anti-Semitic trope.

The comments received swift condemnation from Congressional members on both sides of the aisle, including from the Democratic leadership. However, Ocasio-Cortez praised Omarfor what she said “raised the issue of lobbyist [money] in politics.”

The freshman congressional trio has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism. Omar and Tlaib have come out in support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish the nation-state of Israel economically for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

Ocasio-Cortez has been notably silent on the issue, however, she is part of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which supports the movement. A 2017 video surfaced of DSA voting in favor of BDS while chanting “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” a famous Hamas rallying cry. (RELATED: America’s  First Two Muslim Congresswomen Will Both Be Fundraising For Hamas-Linked Organization)

While Ocasio-Cortez claimed to have Sephardic Jewish ancestry, she has made some eyebrow raising statements about Jews. The self-proclaimed radical compared a migrant caravan trying to enter the United States illegally to Jews fleeing the Holocaust.

She later compared the effects of Democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal to the Holocaust, urging the United States to follow Germany’s example by paying reparations and acknowledge the suffering that occurred during Nazi occupation.

Ocasio-Cortez also received backlash after she expressed gratitude for her correspondence with Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of U.K.’s Labour Party. Corbyn has been plagued with accusations of anti-Semitism and has a long history of condemning Israel while applauding anti-Jewish terrorist organizations.

FORMER KKK GRAND WIZARD DAVID DUKE ENDORSES ILHAN OMAR: SHE’S ‘NOW THE MOST IMPORTANT MEMBER OF THE US CONGRESS!’

Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke Endorses Ilhan Omar: She's 'NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!'

When will Rep. Omar disavow?

Infowars.com – MARCH 7, 2019

In a recent radio broadcast, former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke praised Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for her recent statements against Israel.

In a description of Duke’s podcast Thursday, Omar was credited for defying what he referred to as “Z.O.G.”

“By Defiance to Z.O.G. Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” screamed a headline at Duke’s website.

A Thursday show description reads:

“Today Dr. Duke and Eric Striker of the Public Space had the kind of fun and informative show we have come to expect from our Thunder and Lightning Thor’s Day broadcasts. In particular, they heaped praise on Ilhan Omar (D-New Somalia) for being the one person in Congress willing to notice AIPAC and the “dual” loyalty of many (((members of Congresss))).”

The headline was accompanied by an image featuring a heart eyes emoji and Rep. Omar (D-Minn.), which was also shared on Twitter.

CAP

Duke’s endorsement comes as Dems, including fellow freshmen congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich), have come to Omar’s defense after recent comments criticizing Israel were largely deemed anti-Semitic.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday also dismissed the controversy over Omar’s comments, saying “I do not believe that she understood the full weight of the words.”

NPR lays out Omar’s troubles which stem from a tweet made last month.

In February, Omar responded to a tweet from journalist Glenn Greenwald, who posted about House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy threatening to punish Omar and another congresswoman for being critical of Israel.

Omar wrote back, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” a line about $100 bills from a Puff Daddy song. Critics jumped on the tweet and said Omar was calling up a negative and harmful stereotype of Jewish Americans.

In another tweet soon after, Omar named the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, saying it was funding Republican support for Israel.

President Donald Trump on Monday added to the pressure on Dems to address Omar’s remarks in a tweet calling their inaction a “dark day for Israel.”

CAP

During the 2016 presidential campaign, mainstream media outlets incessantly demonized then candidate Trump for his loose affiliation with Duke during his flirt with a presidential bid in 2000 when he was part of the Reform party.

It is doubtful Omar will receive the same treatment.

Tlaib Boasts She’ll Introduce Legislation By End Of March To Impeach Trump

“This is an emergency for many of us.”

By Hank Berrien

On Wednesday morning, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who yelled to a cheering crowd in January on her first night as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives “we’re gonna impeach the mother***er” about President Trump, announced that by the end of March she will introduce legislation to impeach the president.

Tlaib blustered, “We saw record turnout in an election year, where people wanted to elect a jury that would begin the impeachment proceedings to Donald Trump. We want to work on these economic justice issues, racial justice issues and everything. But guess what? There is a wall there, and a constitutional crisis that is not going to [let us] do our jobs as American Congress members to push a lot of these agendas forward,” according to The Hill.

Bragging about the new Democratic members of Congress, Tlaib added, “This is the largest class since Watergate. This is a class — a diverse class — that comes … with a sense of urgency to act. To act to hold corporations accountable, to act in holding President Trump accountable, to act to really try to see real reforms, even within our congressional process. This is an emergency for many of us.”

On the night after she joined the House of Representatives, Tlaib cried, “People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er.’”

The week she was inducted into the House, Tlaib published an op-ed in the Detroit Free Press calling for Trump’s impeachment. She wrote:

President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country. On an almost daily basis, he attacks our Constitution, our democracy, the rule of law and the people who are in this country. His conduct has created a constitutional crisis that we must confront now …

We already have overwhelming evidence that the president has committed impeachable offenses, including, just to name a few: obstructing justice; violating the emoluments clause; abusing the pardon power; directing or seeking to direct law enforcement to prosecute political adversaries for improper purposes; advocating illegal violence and undermining equal protection of the laws; ordering the cruel and unconstitutional imprisonment of children and their families at the southern border; and conspiring to illegally influence the 2016 election through a series of hush money payments …

We are also now hearing the dangerous claim that initiating impeachment proceedings against this president is politically unwise and that, instead, the focus should now shift to holding the president accountable via the 2020 election. Such a claim places partisan gamesmanship over our country and our most vulnerable at this perilous moment in our nation’s history. Members of Congress have a sworn duty to preserve our Constitution. Leaving a lawless president in office for political points would be abandoning that duty …

This is not just about Donald Trump. This is about all of us. What should we be as a nation? Who should we be as a people? In the face of this constitutional crisis, we must rise. We must rise to defend our Constitution, to defend our democracy, and to defend that bedrock principle that no one is above the law, not even the President of the United States. Each passing day brings more pain for the people most directly hurt by this president, and these are days we simply cannot get back. The time for impeachment proceedings is now.

Tlaib is not the first House Democrat to pursue impeaching Trump. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) has introduced articles of impeachment; Rep. Al Green (D-TX) has promised to reintroduce a motion to impeach the president.
