Giving a response to President Trump’s Oval Office address calling for congressional leaders to fund the construction of a ‘big, beautiful’ wall on the southern border, freshman Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed to assert that illegal migrants seeking to cross the U.S border were more American that the patriots seeking to secure the nation’s borders.
“The women and children on that border that are trying to seek refuge and seek opportunity in the United States of America with nothing but the shirts on their back are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be.”
The claim comes as surprising news to the hundreds of millions of American citizens opposed to illegal immigration. Apparently it isn’t citizenship in the constitutional republic that makes one an American, but rather trying to breach the borders of the United States while only owning one shirt.
Cortez went on to claim that President Donald Trump has a “proven track record of discrimination against anyone who’s non-white,” throughout his life previous to the Presidency.
On the same segment with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Ocasio-Cortez also objected to the funding of Immigration and Customs Enforcement during the government shutdown-despite voting to fund the agency in an earlier congressional vote.
Conservatives and patriots should genuinely consider opposing Ocasio-Cortez on the basis of these sorts of twisted statements- ascribing American nationality to illegal immigration itself- rather than being distracted by dancing videos and high school nicknames.
Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement
Will Mitch retire?
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.
Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.
McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
