‘Sandy’ Cortez On Mosque Shootings: ‘What Good Are Your Thoughts & Prayers’

On Friday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand by calling out those who expressed “thoughts and prayers” in sympathy for the victims, and she did it in a tweet.

“At 1st I thought of saying, ‘Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t safe anymore.’,” she tweeted.

“But I couldn’t say ‘imagine.’ Because of Charleston. Pittsburgh. Sutherland Springs.

“What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe?” she concluded.

What kind of monster would make a statement like that about thoughts and prayers for victims of gun violence in a house of prayer?  My God, from what bowels of Hell did Ocasio-Cortez come?

For some time now anti-gun/pro-gun control people have responded to mass shootings by openly making fun of others who use the expression “thoughts and prayers.”

It took the New York Congresswoman 47 minutes to realize she had to backpedal on her remarks.

“Thoughts and prayers” is reference to the NRA’s phrase used to deflect conversation away from policy change during tragedies. Not directed to PM Ardern, who I greatly admire.”

Yeah, that’s what she meant. #EyeRoll

Progressives are godless creatures whose only mission is to fight toward the goal of all progressives, and that collective goal is to destroy the American system and replace it with a utopian heaven on earth.  The goal is all-encompassing, but any compartmental fight is attributed toward the main goal.  In this case, the goal is believing that government taking away guns will create a utopian society where gun violence is a thing of the past.  Yeah, I know she didn’t verbatim say she wanted to take away guns from law-abiding citizens, but for what other reason would an elected congresswoman insult hundreds of millions of Americans who are people of faith and those who believe in the Second Amendment?  That is the underlying message the Cenk puppet made.  Her backpedal only came after the backlash she received, and she chose to attack the NRA, a source of anger and bitter resentment by those who want to take away your guns. New Zealand doesn’t even have an NRA.  It looks like she reached out to the progressive collective for help and was advised to blame it all on the NRA.

From Breitbart:

New Zealand has more restrictive gun laws than those in the United States. It is not yet clear how the murderer, or murderers, obtained the weapons used in the attack.

A report by the New Zealand Herald indicated that an armed Muslim man “chased the shooters and fired two shots at them as they sped off” from one of the sites targeted.

Ocasio-Cortez also re-tweeted a claim that President Donald Trump had inspired the shootings:

Thoughts and prayers are a standard way Americans express empathy and sympathy for people facing a hardship. After that, offerings of physical help usually follow.   Ocasio-Cortez used a tragedy like this to go political and score some points.  What she really needs to do is learn when to keep her mouth shut and keep her thoughts to herself.

Nunes Poses Questions For Trump To Ask British P.M. Theresa May About Her Government’s Role In Steele Dossier

On Wednesday, Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, urged President Donald Trump to ask Prime Minister Theresa May if British officials were involved in, and supportive of, intelligence-gathering activities targeted at his campaign or if they coordinated in any way with ex British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the Steele dossier, since the president is preparing to make a state visit to Britain in June.

“I respectfully request that you ask Prime Minister May about the British government’s knowledge of the Steele dossier and whether the British government took any unilateral actions based on information provided by [Christopher] Steele or at the request of any U.S. departments,” California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes wrote in a letter to Trump.

Nunes cited a May 19 article in The Telegraph titled, “Theresa May’s spy chiefs were briefed on explosive Christopher Steele dossier before Donald Trump.” The report said the heads of MI5 and MI6, the intelligence agencies of the United Kingdom, and a top May advisers were told about Steele’s salacious memos on the Trump campaign after his 2016 election victory and before Trump was told about it.

Nunes pointed out that the article raised “important questions about the potential role foreign government officials may have played in spreading the dossier’s false allegations and what actions they may have taken in response to the allegations,” Nunes came up with a set of questions for the president to ask May.

“Is the British government aware of, did it give permission for, or did it participate in, activities by any government to surveil or otherwise target active or former associates of the Trump campaign, if any such surveillance activities took place?” Nunes wrote.

Another question: “Describe any communications or relationship, if any, Joseph Mifsud… has had with British intelligence and any information the British government possesses about Mifsud’s connection to any other government or intelligence agency.”

Since the beginning of the whole Spygate debacle, Nunes has been at the forefront of seeking answers to how the Trump-Russia collusion nonsense began. Trump said earlier this month that he is going to declassify related materials very soon.

From Fox News:

Earlier this week, Nunes told Fox News that the FBI had “something to hide” concerning Mifsud, a Maltese academic who allegedly told former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos in April 2016 that Russia had damaging information about Trump’s rival Hillary Clinton, eventually touching off the original FBI probe. Papadopoulos has accused Mifsud of acting as one of many spies intent on corroborating “bad intelligence.”

“He is the first person that we know of on earth that supposedly knows something about the Russians having Hillary’s emails,” Nunes told “Fox News @ Night.” “He has since denied that, but [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller in his report claimed that Mifsud — or insinuated that Mifsud — was some sort of Russian asset. We know that this is not the case. In fact, we know that he was in the U.S. Capitol … just steps away from an intelligence committee.”

Nunes’ letter to Trump also drills down on how deeply reliant the intelligence community was on Steele, whose dossier played a central role in obtaining a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor former Trump aide Carter Page.

John Solomon, investigative report from The Hill, reported earlier this month that the FBI was told that Steele admitted to someone high up at the State Department that he was “keen” to leak the phony dossier in hopes of influencing the 2016 election against Trump.  Steele hated Trump, and wanted to do anything he could to harm his candidacy.  That State Department official went on to raise concerns about the accuracy of some of Steele’s claims during that meeting.  In that meeting Steele also acknowledged that the dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign.  Tragically, James Comey’s FBI failed to offer up that knowledge to the the FISA court when they used the phony dossier to get a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.

Transcripts: McCabe, Not Mueller, Fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok From Special Counsel Team

Transcripts of testimony that were recently released are causing all kinds of havoc in the D.C. swamp.  One set of transcripts shows fired and disgraced former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe testified that he was the one who “made the decision” to fire the disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok from the Mueller team, and not Robert Mueller himself.

“Former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe claimed he ‘made the decision’ to remove Peter Strzok from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in the summer of 2017 after a series of anti-Trump text messages surfaced between the former FBI special agent and another official with whom he was romantically involved,” Fox News reports.

“It was long thought that Mueller had Strzok removed after the texts between him and Lisa Page were uncovered. But McCabe’s apparent role was revealed in a newly released transcript from his House Judiciary Committee interview on Dec. 21, 2017,” the article added.

Then why didn’t Mueller say this himself publicly?  He had to have known it was big news at the time when the story broke that Strzok had been removed from the team over the content of newly discovered text messages between Strzok and his lover (who was not his wife) former FBI attorney Lisa Page.  Why did Mueller allow the falsehood to go on for so long?  Was it because it made him look good in the eyes of the public?  When you are perpetrating a fraud, such as was the whole Trump-Russia collusion investigation, you’ll take anything that makes you look good.

“They said they had a very important matter for me to review and they needed me to come across the street and talk to them that day, which was unusual,” McCabe told lawmakers in July 2017. “I made the decision to remove him from the investigation that evening.”

McCabe lied back in March when he claimed that the phony Steele dossier was “accurately represented” when it was used to apply for a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.

“I do believe that we adequately notified the FISA Court of the information we were using, and what we thought of the information,” McCabe said over the weekend.

“I think everyone was satisfied that we had represented that accurately and adequately in the package,” he added. “I do think we represented it adequately”

Yeah, and I’m Mary, Queen of Scots.

McCabe was fired from the FBI in March last year, only days before he was scheduled to retire.  He has claimed that he was fired because of the Trump administration’s ongoing war with the FBI.  In reality, McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, after his firing was recommended by both the Department of Justice’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the FBI’s own Office of Professional Responsibility, because he leaked to the Washington Post, and he lied to Congress under oath when he denied that he leaked to the Washington Post.  When you join the FBI, the first thing they teach you at the academy is if you are caught lying, you’re done.  The FBI takes their agents lying very seriously, as it should, because agents must be able to be  trusted with the powers they are given to do their job.  McCabe and Strzok fell far short of that trust.

Donald Trump Jr Weighing Run for NYC Mayor

According to Page Six, the gossip page of the NY Post, which can be found coincidentally on page 6, Donald Trump Jr is considering a run for mayor of NYC next time out. Although Page Six is a gossip page, it has a long history of being right on it’s articles. But, Trump Jr really would have no chance in an election in one of the most liberal cities on the planet. He might want to do something really crazy like cutting taxes and he would probably have encouraged Amazon to build the campus in the city and create 25,000 jobs. Heaven forbid.

From The Gateway Pundit

Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly weighing a run against Bill de Blasio to become New York City’s next mayor.

According to a report from Page Six, “drums are beating that Donald Jr. would like to run for mayor.”

“We are not talking some parched sod in Iowa, where the corn is as high as a Democrat’s eye. Kiddies, mother is saying friends are saying he is saying he’d like to run for mayor of New York City,” the gossip column’s report asserted.

Trump Jr. is wildly popular among the president’s base.

Earlier this month, de Blasio announced that he will be running for president in the Democratic primary. He was the 24th candidate to announce.

President Trump ripped de Blasio as the ‘worst mayor’ in the United States in a video following his announcement that he is running for president.

In a tweet prior to his official announcement, President Trump said that “the Dems are getting another beauty to join their group. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today. He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!”
