When Democrats regained a majority in the U.S. House following the 2016 elections, they hailed their accomplishments and promised a new direction. Unfortunately for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, three radical upstart Congresswomen have brought nothing but division and disgrace.
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also known as “AOC,” Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar are taking heavy fire as they tear the very fabric of the Democratic Party apart. The trio has managed to attack America’s closest allies, perpetuate anti-Semitism, destroy high paying jobs and allegedly broken campaign finance and worker compensation laws. The three progressive extremists have done more to warrant being removed from Congress in two months than any politician in recent history.
Cortez Deprives Constituents of Jobs
AOC, the former New York bartender and socialist, has quickly emerged as the new face of the Democratic Party. That face has already been fined for failing to provide her campaign staff members with workers’ compensation insurance. This is particularly hypocritical for a politician who claims to be an advocate of the $15 minimum wage movement and workers rights. Apparently, she is on board as long as she doesn’t get a bill.
That being said, New York City is seeing what AOC means by helping working people. She was instrumental in Amazon pulling the plug on its proposed Big Apple headquarters that would have provided 25,000 New Yorkers with high paying jobs. The Jobs Creators Network has taken out a series of billboards taking AOC to task for her working-class treachery. Among the billboard slogans are things such as “Thanks for Nothing.”
“That’s why we’ve started a GoFundMe — to kick up more dirt and really take the fight all across the country. We must publicly call out and shame these anti-job socialists for their malicious assault on capitalism and the American people,” a Job Creators Network statement said. “History tells the facts: Socialism ALWAYS fails. We can’t risk becoming the next victim.”
Amazon offered an average salary of $150,000 in the extremist’s own district. That’s a far above $15 per hour and the meager $52,000 the socialist promised to pay staffers in the super-expensive Washington, D.C., area. But, the money trail doesn’t stop there.
The Federal Election Commission recently filed a criminal complaint alleging that AOC and her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti used two PACs he created to siphon off approximately $1 million to private companies he owned. The FEC complaint reportedly states that “an elaborate scheme to avoid proper disclosure of campaign expenditures” was used by AOC and her chief of staff. Other so-called “Dark Money” allegations have also surfaced that AOC’s boyfriend may also be involved in campaign finance schemes.
Tlaib Accused of Campaign Finance Theft
The firebrand from Detroit made her presence known by using profanity after taking the oath of Congress. Since then, she has done nothing to further the needs of her voting district. Detroit remains a high crime, low-income area. Despite that, Tlaib has put her focus on whims such as the Green New Deal with AOC and others that would bankrupt the country at a cost of nearly $100 trillion.
But like AOC, Tlaib also appears to have played fast and loose with campaign money. After winning a seat in the mid-terms, Tlaib reportedly kept paying herself as if she were still a candidate. Campaign finance rules make it a criminal offense to continue taking money after an election has been completed — win or lose.
“If the candidate loses the primary, withdraws from the race, or otherwise ceases to be a candidate, no salary payments may be paid beyond the date he or she is no longer a candidate,” campaign finance rules state.
Tlaib had been allotting herself a $4,000 per month salary up until the 2016 election. After the votes were counted, she took another $2,000 almost immediately and then snatched $15,000 on Dec. 1. The question everyday Americans want to know is: will she and AOC be prosecuted like Michael Cohen, or do Democrats play by a different set of elitist rules?
Minnesota Rep. Omar Reprimanded for Anti-Semitism
Although AOC and Tlaib are under fire for hurting working Americans and money schemes, Rep. Omar is the very embodiment of radical Islamic anti-Semitism. In under two months, she has already been rebuked by her own party for hate speech against the Jewish State and faith.
A resolution has been drafted after organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League were outraged by the upstart’s repeated bashing of Jews and Israel. Muslim leaders have called for Omar to be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee after attacking America’s most loyal ally in the Middle East.
“Resolutions are all well and good, but Speaker Pelosi is clearly afraid to stand up to Rep. Omar if she continues to reward her with a plum spot on the Foreign Affairs Committee,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise reportedly tweeted.
While most have been steering away from questions about their colleague’s remarks, California Democrat Rep. Juan Vargas called out Omar to apologize, again, for pushing “hurtful anti-Semitic stereotypes.”
To date, Omar has never truly taken full responsibility for her hate speech. Instead, the radical trio is threatening moderate Democrats who are voting their constituents best interest over left-wing extremism. Washington’s insiders are saying that Speaker Pelosi has already lost control of her rank and file Democrats.
