Republican Rep. Brian Babin of Texas urged Democrat leaders Thursday to block new Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib from traveling to the Palestinian territory on the taxpayer dime. Babin cited national security concerns.
“Please deny Rep. Tlaib’s request to sponsor and lead a CODEL to Palestine and exercise your authority as chair to deny your consent to any member of your committee who seeks your approval to participate in such a misadventure,” Babin wrote in his letter.
Tlaib’s trip would serve as an antidote of sorts to the AIPAC-sponsored trip to Israel for freshmen congressmen.
President Donald Trump cancelled Nancy Pelosi’s planned trip to Brussels, Belgium and the Middle East Thursday, one hour before her taxpayer-funded flight was set to take off from the runway.
Here is what President Trump wrote to Pelosi, explaining the cancellation:
“We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate.
“I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown. Obviously if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative.
“I look forward to seeing you soon and even more forward to watching our open and dangerous Southern Border finally receiving the attention, funding, and security it so desperately deserves!”

INSANE: Engineer Ran Train Off Tracks to Damage Coronavirus HOSPITAL SHIP
An unthinkable act of possible terrorism.
A Los Angeles engineer reportedly derailed a train, sending it in the direction of the hospital ship USNS Mercy with the hopes of damaging the vessel Tuesday.
Eduardo Moreno of San Pedo is being charged with one count of train wrecking.
Prosecutors are claiming that Moreno was intentionally trying to damage the hospital ship. They allude to the possibility of Moreno being a conspiracy theorist of some sort, evidently believing that the hospital ship was going to be used for nefarious purposes.
Moreno is said to have crashed a Pacific Harbor Line train, running it off the rails and sending it careening through a barricade to the Port of Los Angeles’ docks. The train crashed through several barriers and fences, crossing over two gravel parking lots. It ceased moving before reaching the Mercy, coming to rest just before the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
No one was injured from the derailing of the train, but a leakage of fuel from the machine required a hazmat team to respond to the incident.
Moreno allegedly told investigators that he was “suspicious” of the ship, not believing that “the ship is what they say it’s for.” The locomotive engineer reportedly went on to say that “you only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.”
A Department of Justice press release on Moreno’s arrest and criminal charge describes the man as admitting to derailing the train with the intention of damaging the ship.
The Mercy docked at the Port of Los Angeles over the weekend. The vessel in present in the area to assist in containment measures for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, in a similar fashion to the hospital ship USNS Comfort’s presence in New York City.
Derailing a train with the intention of damaging a hospital ship is an extreme criminal act, to put it lightly. The incident may have possible terrorist ramifications if it’s made clear that Moreno wanted to damage the ship for overt political purposes.
Big League Politics will continue to monitor this situation.
Video surfaced of the halted train and the damage it inflicted on the municipal docks on Tuesday.
