Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is trying to cash in on her infamously profane outburst regarding President Donald Trump, and is now selling t-shirts featuring her signature phrase, “Impeach the MF” to raise campaign funds.
Lean in with me to hold this lawless President accountable. Together, we will fight back and protect our democracy.
Our country depends on it!
— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) September 26, 2019
After being criticized for the shirts, Tlaib stood by them and released a sanctimonious statement defending her decision to sell the crude merchandise.
“Impeachment is serious—I know this. But it is a mistake to try to equate t-shirts with the destruction of our democracy or try to paint those who’ve risked out safety calling for it, as not taking it seriously,” she wrote. “If there is anyone who takes impeachment seriously it is myself & the people I fight for every day. Whether or not you agree with the expression, the t-shirts are to bring levity to my supporters.”
“Not only has this President personally targeted my faith, but he has been making decisions as a CEO of the Trump Corp., not as someone looking out for what is best for the American people. Focus on why people are so angry with this President and his administration,” she added. “Instead of the t-shirts, focus on this President’s criminal, impeachable behavior.”
She made the infamous comment earlier this year just hours after being sworn in as a Congresswoman while appearing at an event hosted by MoveOn, a George Soros front.

Tlaib has made impeaching the President her signature issue during her first year in the legislature, and she may be finally getting her wish. House Democrats are proceeding forward with an impeachment inquiry after an anonymous whistle-blower lodged a complaint against President Trump over his correspondence with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“We could not ignore what the president did. He gave us no choice,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said about the impeachment inquiry that she launched last week during an appearance on CBS’ “60 Minutes” that aired on Sunday.
“So it wasn’t any change of mind. I always said we will follow the facts where they take us. And when we see them, we will be ready. And we are ready,” she added.
“We will move as expeditiously as possible,” said House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), referring to the impeachment proceedings. “But we have to see what witnesses are going to make themselves available and what witnesses are going to require compulsion.”
“The discussions are underway between the relevant parties representing the whistle-blower and others to see if that’s an opportunity that can be afforded to us,” Rep. Denny Heck (D-WA) said to CNN about the possibility of impeachment. “My view is the sooner the better. I would hope that that would happen within the next two weeks.”
It is clear that Tlaib and her fellow socialist freshman “Squad” members are running the show as the Democrats lunge to the far-left out of desperation to oppose President Trump.
Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan
Another victory for the war party.
Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.
The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.
The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.
“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.
“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.
“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”
The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.
“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.
“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.
The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
