A freshman congresswoman from New York scapegoated the National Rifle Association after Thursday night’s mass shooting in New Zealand, despite the fact that the island nation has restrictive gun ownership laws, and that the NRA does not exist there.
“‘At 1st I thought of saying, ‘Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t safe anymore. But I couldn’t say ‘imagine,’” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said on Twitter.
She continued to reference three fairly-recent shootings in places of worship in America.
“What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe?” she asked.
She then continued her rant in a second Tweet, referencing the NRA. Of course, the NRA is an American non-profit. It has affiliation with New Zealand, where gun ownership is a heavily-restricted privilege, and not a right.
“’Thoughts and prayers’ is reference to the NRA’s phrase used to deflect conversation away from policy change during tragedies,” she said.

Ocasio-Cortez’s comments reflect her own belief that “thoughts and prayers” are just a dodgy mantra used by politicians. In her anti-Christian arrogance, she completely dismissed the large contingent of Americans who actually believe in the power of prayer.
In any case, the NRA is not at fault for the crazed mass murderer in New Zealand – nor is it at fault for any crazed murderers in the United States. In reality, the NRA is barely a power player in the gun rights world. It is an organization that spends most of its time capitulating to the political left on gun rights issues, rather than proactively fighting for less stringent gun regulations that resemble what the framers of the Constitution had in mind when the Second Amendment was codified.
Still, simpletons like the New York congresswoman insist that the organization is the devil incarnate.
Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump
The GOP is crumbling.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.
This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.
“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.
“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.
Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.
“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said.
“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.
The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…
Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”
The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
