Here is a post of Rush Limbaugh’s warning to AOC (Alexandira Ocasio-Cortez) and other “new” Democrats in Congress.
It’s worth a read.
In the last paragraph, he quotes from Tom Brokaw. Limbaugh said Brokaw was sent over to MSNBC to “blame both sides” for the shutdown.
Limbaugh said “When the old eminence of the Democrat Party under the guise of the anchor of the NBC Nightly News Tom Brokaw, in the midst of the shutdown – in the midst of a shutdown in which the Democrats and the media are totally trying to blame Donald Trump – all of a sudden, here comes Tom Brokaw on MSNBC blaming both sides for the shutdown, that is Democrat speak for ‘we’ve got a political problem here.’ (emphasis added)
“Brokaw is saying that the Democrats ‘find themselves now in a risky situation,’ and Brokaw followed it with this: ‘You’ve got the young people running through the halls who are the new members of Congress who are conducting pep rallies every day instead of getting together with the more moderate people.’ Let me tell you who he’s talking about. Who do you think he’s talking about? He’s talking about none other than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”
Both AOC and another congressional freshman Rasshida Tlaib have both been assigned seats on the House Committee of Oversight and Reform, which is the main investigative committee in the House.
Tlaib, a Palestinian American, is one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to the U.S. Congress, and has stoked considerable controversy in her short time on Capitol Hill. (The other, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, has herself raised eyebrows with some of her views, and has been handed a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.)
If you have ever heard the expression “cultural jihad” you are now seeing it in full view in The United States Congress. I used to say I am in favor of term limits for all members of Congress, but now I’m not so sure. The influx of immigrants–both legal and illegal–has brought about the election- perhaps fraudulently- of these new politicians, and shortened terms would probably not change that outcome.
Limbaugh says in the article (linked at the first of this piece) that the “old eminence of the Democratic Party” is not going to allow these new members to damage their ultimate goal. Ocasio-Cortez has expressed defiance toward House Democrat leadership, and Limbaugh said that’s likely to end badly, because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t put up with it (since Pelosi is part of the “old eminence”).
Pelosi has already said the expletive-laden comments by Tlaib on the House floor concerning Trumps impeachment shouldn’t be “made a big deal of.” It seems Pelosi has decided to put up with quite a lot already from her freshman colleagues. AOC used the f-word on Late Night with Stephen Colbert to describe how she feels about her critics–including the Democratic leadership (she denies this).
Incredibly, on Fox News’ The Five on Tuesday, co-host Dana Perino described Ocasio-Cortez as “the intellectual leader of the left – and the polls are backing that up.” This about a woman who couldn’t name the three branches of government, even though she has become a member of the government. I would venture to say Cortez has never read the Bill of Rights, either. It is apparent she has no interest in upholding the Constitution when it doesn’t meet her Socialist standards.
Anyone who uses four-letter words to express themselves does not come across as “intellectual.”
Limbaugh said “Do not misunderstand something. The Democrats are thought to be unified, and they are when it comes to agenda items and objectives and their collective hatred for us” (meaning conservatives and Republicans).
I would suggest that the freshman congressional members are not the only ones holding “pep rallies.” The only time we hear from the Democrat leadership is when they hold a press conference to denounce President Trump and his Administration’s efforts. They don’t seem to bother with doing what they pledged to do when they took office: Uphold the Constitution and make America safe for American citizens, which includes National Security and border security. Now that they have a House majority, the ONLY thing they have promised is more investigations into all things Trump (including another “investigation” into Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh) and the eventual impeachment of President Trump.
They have no other agenda.
They don’t want to make America great, they want to make America THEIRS, and they don’t care what it takes or what it costs.
