Pelosi Pushes Resolution to Support "The Squad"
Update: Mitt Romney Says... Seems to Me These Women Do Have Some Anti-American Tendencies, No?

Allegiance.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Monday urged House Democrats to support a resolution to condemn President Trump for tweeting that four Democratic congresswomen of color should "go back" to their countries, even though all are U.S. citizens. "The House cannot allow the President’s characterization of immigrants to our country to stand. Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President’s xenophobic tweets," Pelosi wrote in a letter to House Democrats announcing a "forthcoming" resolution from Reps. Tom Malinowski (D-N.J.), who was born in Poland, Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), and other Democratic members who were born abroad.

"This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress," Pelosi added. "Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy that reflects American values."



There's speculation that Trump's tweets will actually work to his benefit, for precisely the reason seen above: They force Pelosi to embrace The Squad, a group of four radical, America-hating socialists who are loathed by the American public.


Omar Ilhan, for example, has a favorability rating of nine percent in the country as a whole.

If it's true that this forces Democrats into a tactical error of defending indefensible ground, people will say Trump's a genius.

I wouldn't go that far. But I'd say this: If a football's team defense does not aggressively go after the opponents' offense -- that is, if it sits back and just reacts -- the offense will work the ball down the field and make scoring look easy.

Trump does understand something that the cuck class does not or will not: That the only way to force errors, and make someone look clumsy and amateurish, is to challenge them. Pressure them.

Teams that are not pressured do not make many errors. Teams that are pressured do make errors.

The Democrat Party is used to operating in a friendly, permissive environment in which they can execute their plans and plays without counter-pressure.

They're not used to pressure.

Trump isn't a genius, I don't think. But he does have the small, tiny advantage of being right on policy, and the little advantage of grasping, intuitively, that you cannot win a game without aggression and pressure.

The cuck class does not believe in pressuring Democrats, except on largely procedural bullshit that no one really cares about. One example: Mitch McConnell permitted the Democrats to delay a vote until their sick members could rejoin Congress and vote Obamacare into law.

But Mitch McConnell didn't sell us out. He got something big in return. Remember what it was?

Of course you don't. Because it wasn't big.

McConnell's big "get" in exchange for shepherding Obamacare into law was getting Democrats to agree to hold a vote to increase the debt ceiling just before the evening news shows. This would be super-embarrassing for the Democrats, he told us, and would lead to Big Political Victories down the line.

I think we can say that history has rendered its verdict, and McConnell's big "get" was a big nothing.

Another reason the cuck class doesn't push on immigration -- an issue which has the ability to move votes in our favor -- is that they are in substantial agreement with the left on open borders.

Remember, Boehner and McConnell and the other open borders corporatists weren't against the DACA policy. They limited their objection to Obama's use of an executive order to achieve it. They wanted Congress to pass DACA.

A procedural complaint, again, while supporting the main point of the liberal amnesty agenda.

Update: Mitt Romney decides that You Never Go Full David French.



Will NeverTrump now seek to excommunicate him, as they've done with poor Maro Rubo?

Meanwhile, here's a little flashback from May 18, 2019: a pilot program of rapid DNA typing concluded that 30% of "asylum seekers" were travelling with a child they were unrelated to, but claiming as their own.

Where did these children, used to make a dangerous, illegal border crossing in which rape is a very real possibility, come from?

Does anyone care?

Earning citizenship, one trafficked child at a time.

From May 18, 2019:

In a pilot program, approximately 30% of rapid DNA tests of immigrant adults who were suspected of arriving at the southern border with children who weren't theirs revealed the adults were not related to the children, an official involved in the system's temporary rollout who asked to be anonymous in order to speak freely told the Washington Examiner Friday.

"There’s been some concern about, 'Are they stepfathers or adopted fathers?'" the official said. "Those were not the case. In these cases, they are misrepresented as family members."

In some incidents where Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the adults they would have to take a cheek swab to verify a relationship with a minor, several admitted the child was not related and did not take the DNA test, which was designed by a U.S. company.

More: Below, Ana Navarro says we should send Melania Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio back to their "home countries."

Note that Rubio was born in America and Ted Cruz is the son of an American, born in Canada due to the parent working there at the time.

Is this suddenly Not forbidden when the left wants to snark?

Either it's forbidden and taboo or it's not.

Apparently it's not. So shut the fuck up.




Meanwhile, AllahPundit's down with the plan:
