House Speaker Vote Good for America, Bad for Tlaib and her “Squad”

New House Speaker Mike Johnson speaking after his election

For thousands of years, Jews have been persecuted and murdered by antisemites who falsely claimed the Jews brought the attacks on themselves by their own conduct. This lie has surfaced again after Hamas’ barbaric October 7th assault and massacre. The Iran-proxy terrorist group continues to fire thousands of rockets into Israel, which continues to defend itself and has vowed to annihilate the genocidal entity.

While Israel continues to be attacked, and as pro-Hamas mobs have been demonstrating around the world, for the last three weeks Americans have also been watching the chaos of the House of Representatives as the GOP had a very public fight choosing a new Speaker after booting Rep. Kevin McCarthy from the job. Finally, this week Representative Mike Johnson was elected as the 56th Speaker of the House. Speaker Johnson told the media that there would now be an “aggressive schedule in the days and weeks ahead,” and he wasn’t kidding. First out of the gate was an important and simple resolution—HR 771, affirming America’s support of Israel and condemning Hamas’ terrorist attacks.

Shamefully, some far-left congressional Democrats have joined the Israel-bashing chorus of Hamas, Muslim nations, the United Nations, the left-wing media and others. This comes even though 32 Americans were murdered Oct. 7 during the terrorist attack on Israel, and with at least 12 Americans believed to be among hostages Hamas is holding in the Gaza Strip.

Most members of Congress are supporting Israel following the unprovoked surprise terrorist attack. The House voted Wednesday for the resolution titled, “Standing with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas and other terrorists” which passed by a vote of 412 to 10 with six members abstaining. The resolution says the House “stands with Israel as it defends itself against the barbaric war launched by Hamas” and “condemns Hamas’ brutal war against Israel.” It says Hamas should “cease these violent attacks” and release all hostages.

Never in my life could I have imagined any member of our Congress voting “no” on a resolution supporting an ally, but even more so condemning a savage, inhuman attack on unarmed civilians including infants and children, pregnant women, the disabled, and the elderly. But we didn’t have just one, we had ten voting “no,” and then equally as disgusting were the six who abstained. How do you abstain from condemning genocide?

Not surprisingly, one of those voting against the resolution was Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., a leading opponent of Israel in Congress. She often makes note of her “Palestinian” heritage and behaves as though she is more concerned with representing Palestinians and demonizing Israel than with representing the people of her district.

Moreover, this week the Jerusalem Post reported the Canary Mission, a group committed to fighting antisemitism, issued a report revealing disturbing claims of campaign finance links between Tlaib, Hamas-linked organizations, and activists. The Post reported, “The group states that Tlaib used the Facebook group PAC-USA (Palestinian American Congress-USA), for her congressional campaign. This group, Canary said, shared pro-terrorism, antisemitic, and Nazi propaganda content. The group no longer exists but had over 12,000 members in June 2020,” said the newspaper. “Moreover, Tlaib allegedly hired the founder of the group as the chairman of her campaign’s Finance Committee…”

The Canary report itself states: “Canary Mission can confirm that Rashida Tlaib has extensive fundraising ties to Hamas supporters. She employed no less than three Hamas-linked activists to fundraise for her 2018 election campaign, one of whom spent 8 months in prison for his alleged connections to Hamas.”

Democratic House members (many with long anti-Israel records) also voting against the pro-Israel/anti-Hamas resolution were “Squad” members and more: Reps. Jamaal Bowman of New York, Andre Carson of Indiana, Cori Bush of Missouri, Al Green of Texas, Summer Lee of Pennsylvania, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Delia Ramirez of Illinois. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., also opposed the resolution.

The six Democrats voting “present” were: Reps. Greg Casar and Joaquin Castro of Texas, Nydia Velázquez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Jesús “Chuy” Garcia of Illinois and Pramila Jayapal of Washington state (chair of the far-left Congressional Progressive Caucus).

Tlaib endorsed a propaganda claim by Hamas last week promoting the now internationally debunked Hamas claim that Israel bombed a hospital in Gaza and killed 500 Palestinians. Despite the United States confirming the rocket was launched by Islamic Jihad, Tlaib has called for an independent investigation, saying: “I cannot uncritically accept Israel’s denial of responsibility as fact.” Tlaib continues to victim -blame insisting Hamas’ “resistance” (Tlaib’s euphemism for bloodthirsty terrorism) is the fault of Israel because of its treatment of Palestinians. This is absurd.

Meanwhile, at the notorious snake pit of Jew-hating also known as the United Nations, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has taken much the same position as Tlaib. He said Tuesday that “the attacks by Hamas did not happen in a vacuum. The Palestinian people have been subjected to 56 years of suffocating occupation.” Israel’s ambassador to the U.N. was so outraged by the victim-blaming that he demanded Guterres “resign immediately.” But to no one’s surprise, Guterres didn’t step down.

When certain members of Congress vote “no” or abstain on a resolution condemning terrorism and violence against Jews, a very specific message is sent  to the terrorists and thugs of the world—that genocidal mass murder is an acceptable act against not just Israel, but Jews everywhere. Sixteen American congressmembers refused to condemn a level of inhuman violence worthy of prehistoric beasts. Yes, it was an attack against Jews, but in its genocidal savagery, rank barbarism, and the desire for it to metastasize and infect the rest of the civilized world, Hamas’ actions are no less than a crime against humanity.

On the shameful vote of Tlaib and the others who voted no on the resolution, Rep. Jason Smith, R-Mo., the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee told Brian Kilmeade on Fox Radio:

Those nine Democrats are a complete disgrace. Cori Bush comes from my home state. She advocates for defunding the police. The city she represents, in my home state, per capita, has more murders than anywhere else in the United States. These people are not rational. They want to destroy our society and they promote propaganda that is as fake news as you possibly can find. The fact that they’re harboring and supporting terrorists who have killed more Jewish people since the Holocaust is absolutely unacceptable and these people do not deserve to serve in the halls of Congress.

Now that the House has its new speaker, it appears two Democrats will be facing censure votes. A resolution to censure Congressman Jamaal Bowman, responsible for pulling the fire alarm at the Capitol complex, has been introduced, as has one for Tlaib. Both face possible removal from committee assignments. Considering the violence and chaos unfolding here and around the world, losing committee assignments is the least they deserve. They certainly do not deserve to hold any position involved in determining this nation’s future.

Rashida Tlaib & Ilhan Omar: If you hate America so much, then go back to the third world 7th century toilet you came from and leave us the heII alone. We’re not interested in Sharia Law nor your perversity, enslavement or incompetance. (That you peddle as DEI)
We’ll stick with our Constitution, Bill of Rights and Natural Law.
You two, and your squad, are disgusting.
Enough is enough.

When will everyone understand that there is no Palestinian people? There never was a nation of Palestine.Those calling themselves Palestinians are the poor and uneducated that other Arab countries, including Jordan and Egypt, kicked out. And again now, proving their bias, these countries are refusing to let the Gaza refugees into their countries and allowing Hamas to use them as human shields. Jesus, a Jew walked the same land at least 600 years before Islam even existed (circa 600 A.D. Mohammed established that religion — in the Dark Ages!) Now the “Palestinians” are very useful scapegoats for Arab potentates — people like Arafat (Egyptian) and Hamas leaders got very rich off the monies donated to help the refugees,money that was supposed to provide for a better quality of life for them. And, of course, Israel is their biggest scapegoat, their reason to raise money which I’d bet, they are pocketing. How else do they live so richly in Quatar? This history needs to be shouted loud and clear. It is time the Chosen People are no longer chosen to be hated.

Rep. Tlaib and her cohorts need to be immediately censored thus sending Irag, Hamas, and all those who want to destroy not only Israel but the United States a clear message. “We will not stand for genocide, we will not stand for anti-semitism- we will defend our allies, the Jewish Nation of Israel.
Period.

This is America…why are these foreign terrorists part of any American decision making process that makes laws for US citizens. They were voted in is no answer. A stronger more robust background should have revealed their political allegiances, their connections to terrorist groups, and their anti-American position. Sorry liberals, democrats, and RINO’s, voting is not reliable and so convoluted that the election of these guttersnipe slime should never have happened. All in the name of diversity we are allowing America to be taken over by the these uneducated cretins. Time to return to majority rule.

I’m curious, did the families of Tlaib and Omar come to this country in order to make it like the country they left or to give their children better opportunities?? These Squad members think they are so cute sitting up there bashing Israel when they did nothing but defend themselves!! Anyone who is a supporter of terrorists should definitely NOT hold any office in the land, none!! If they don’t like that, they can leave and go hang with their terrorists bffs!!! I don’t appreciate you coming over here and trying to change our way of life in our country!! You are free to continue yours unless you decide to force it on us – haven’t you learned anything from the woke campaigns and how they actually affected people?? Your ideologies don’t align with ours and any religion that tells you to kill anyone, much less infidels, is not welcome here!! Christians feel that an infidel might just be that person who needs enlightenment instead of killing!!! Gods should not be cruel and merciless, Gods are compassionate, kind, fair and trustworthy!!

As fars as I’m concerned, the Squad are no better than Osama bin Laden. They get away with their BS because the Democrat Party lets them. Why? They believe what they do but they know actually SAYING IT has electoral ramifications for them. As far as those wannabe Nazis marching down the street with, as Biden put it, literal “veins bulging in their necks”, I’m all for the 1st Am. but this is INTIMIDATION just like when they were screaming outside SCOTUS homes. Nobody would support actual Nazis doing the same; neither should we their CLONES.

Maybe we ought to relocate many of the illegal immigrants Biden is importing into this country into Tlaib’s & Omar’s Muslim enclaves to offer “diversity” their to their communities. If anyone believes that there can be a 2 state solution as long as Hamas is representing the Palestinians should take a saliva test. The Hamas Charter demands the destruction of Israel. There is an old saying that the Jewish people have said since the end of WWII, “never again”. Hamas is soon going to understand that statement when they are all wiped out by Israel. Hamas has violated every code of human decency and anyone who supports them should suffer the same fate.

These people are not Americans. They have not assimilated but work for their country of birth. I never understood how Tlaib could be elected and then be re-elected. Just to show how nice we are to foreigners? Give me a break these 16 should be voted out. Be censured or even be impeached. The 91 charges they heaped on Trump cannot be compared what Tlaib especially but the rest of the a15 did by voting no or abstain from voting, they just aided the enemy and that is a federal offense. Where is the DOJ where is Garland and most of all where is ole Joe. But it is all okay with him because he is supporting both sides, is that out of stupidity? After all he reads what they put in front of him including the period at the end of a sentence. Where are we, at the dawn of a world war? I hope not but fear the worst.
The UN and many western countries are standing with Hamas. Klaus Schwab has warned us a great change is coming and there is nothing we can do about it. It is a great plan put together many years ago and we are in the last phase to become reality.

Bowman should be forced out if congress. What he did was a felony in all states, but he is being charged with a possible 6 month sentence for a misdemeanor. That’s BS. Tleib should be forced out of Congress and deported back to her country of origin where she can play footsie with hamas and her taliban buddies!

Claims made using generalities such as “they committed acts of violence” is easily verified by demanding each act of violence be named and any available evidence of is displayed and publicized. This goes for all alarming and accusation-type statements. Get them to show specific instances of it.
That’s the only way to break down an attack like this.

What’s “funny” about the list of Democrats mentioned in this article is the question of how they were elected and re-elected for their districts. I can only speak for Bowman’s district and I know that he is dissatisfied many of his constitutes with his stunts in his protest actions. he is getting enough emails and whatever negative complaints that his staff can’t hide the information and merely send out form letters of an acknowledgment as answers because he has had to tone down his retorts. And he’s the mild progressive of the Squad. So unless there’s a tremendous push of first-time voters who just registered, ( a typical Democrat ploy) the regular voters are not OKAY with him. The problem lies with getting the truth out there about who can vote and how to register to vote, especially since NYS has made it tremendously easy to register and to vote.PROVIDED you are a citizen, have a legal address, and have registered in time to vote. Right now they are spreading the story that one can walk into a polling place, register, and vote on the voting machine. totally leaving out the fact that you have to have the required information of your identity verified for your vote, which will be by AFFIDAVIT BALLOT verified to have that vote counted unless you get a court order allowing you to vote on the machine. The Democrats are denying this information as necessary

Talib was born in Detroit to immigrants coming from Palestine. Omar was a refugee from Somalia and comes from Minnesota where many Muslims are living thanks to Obama. My observation brought my opinion of the two and others like them that they may be natural or naturalized US citizens, but they are NOT Americans. They have not embraced the history or culture of this country. They have no place in US Congress. The US is guilty of some things but what significantly comes to mind is the generous admittance of those who will never identify as an American citizens. Those pushing to change our US Constitution, change and disregard the laws of this country should be ousted.

They should be EXPELLED and barred from holding any gvt. office/positions anywhere in US. Stripped of any way to work at a school board, local town etc. Maybe McDonalds will hire them. Bet if they were audited and investigated- they’d find possible traitor/sold out. This includes Omar, (especially since she violated Immigration law by marrying her brother- she should be expelled out of the US) AOC Bowman Bush Tlaib Pressly- the entire “squad’. Not the first time they have inspired hate, repeated lies, supports and supported BLM/Antifa! Come on Repub. Grow a spine!!!

Our media hid Nazi atrocities and are now doing it again. Gaza is the victim of men who are not willing to protect their families just as the population of Afganistan. US men and women should not die defending those who will not defend themselves. The idea of protecting cowards is absurd. The problem in much of the oppressed world is not the oppressor but the lack of interest among the oppressed. If they don’t care, why should we ? Our problem is our insistent demand that the rest of the world should think as we do. Much of the world do not value their lives and we need to understand that.

It is absurd that the Anti-American “Squad” is allowed to exist, in the public, let alone in the government of the United States.
Their views of these Un-American Politicians, represents only the minutest fraction of the American Populous, whose views need to be rebuked, in the most severe way, and removed from American Society. America was founded on Judea-Christian values and beliefs!

Anyone, including Mike Johnson, who has only a 67% freedom score voting record is not “good for America”. The House should have chosen the other finalist who has a 100% freedom score. While the American Republic is being destroyed, there is no room in positions of power for anyone who will compromise away the Constitution and our rights against their own oath otherwise.
