A congressional hopeful from California told Big League Politics that he is optimistic about his groundswell of support as he looks to unseat a longtime congresswoman in November.

“Every day I grow more confident,” said Omar Navarro, a 28-year-old political outsider from Inglewood.

Navarro is running against Rep. Maxine M. Waters (D.-Calif.) in California’s 43rd congressional district. Waters has been a congresswoman since 1991.

The candidate, who has a large social media presence, said that President Donald J. Trump was his inspiration for running. He feels like an underdog, similar to Trump.

“If Trump can do it, I can do it,” Navarro said.

“Not only did Maxine Waters acknowledge my candidacy a whole year before the election, she called for my investigation in December, which shows that she feels threatened by me,” said Navarro.

Navarro said that Waters called for a forgery investigation into a document that he shared on Twitter, which he says he did not write, but only shared.

While recognizing that Waters has something of an advantage being so well-established, Navarro said that his campaign has raised $200,000, and has a growing group of volunteers and supporters.

He is facing three primary opponents, all of whom have declared candidacy with less than $10,000 to spend.

The Rebuilding America Now PAC, which was instrumental in the 2016 Trump campaign, has also pledged its support for Navarro.

“When you run for Congress, you are not just representing your district, you are representing all Americans,” he said.

Navarro said that his opponent is unhinged and that her policies are not beneficial to the public at large.

On that note, Navarro said that he is wary of giving citizenship to all of the estimated 800,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, which Congress is expected to decide on as part of the budget deal before the Jan. 19 deadline.

His opponent has publicly stated her support citizenship of all DACA recipients.

Navarro said that he is not in favor of mass deportation of DACA recipients, but rather considering them individually for citizenship based on how they have assimilated into American society, and after they have gone through the immigration process as legal immigrants would.

“We are not going to give them the right to vote after coming here through illegal means and not learning what it means to be an American.”

‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’

This is what real conservative leadership is all about.

Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.

Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:

Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.

“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.

“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”

Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.

Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.

One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”

AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”

… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.

Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
