This was literally 1 tweet after she complained TSA agents weren’t getting paid.... so which is it Congresswoman, do you want TSA agents paid or defund DHS, because TSA is a division of DHS.

If you combined both their brains the result would still be dumber than a rock.

She should be considered a clear and present danger to the United States, kicked out of office, and tried in a court of law for her attempt to undermine the security of the United States. Who elects these creatures?

I am only guessing but I would assume once it reaches a certain amount of signatures it forces awareness on the subject at hand and can be picked up by lawmakers, representatives etc to take action.

I don’t have a problem with doing away with DHS, and every other alphabet agency that was created because of The Patriot Act.

I’ve never listed to Alex Jones. I’m not saying all the facets and agencies borne out of the PA are bad. But we basically allowed govt agencies to spy on us in the name of security. Then again we are paying Amazon and Google to do the same in the name of convenience, so there’s that

No &$@# huh!? Imagine that. Islam has been at war with the world for a long time. It is not a religion. It’s a supremist ideology cloaked in the mantle of religion. And here we are with Islamic congress members. The US is changing fast.

No biggie man. Thanks to sir shovelhands for the translation.

Let me give you my take on The Patriot Act. Way back, long before 9/11, there were discussions about “big brother”. Big brother was known as our government spying on our every move. In high school, we had to read George Orwell’s book titled Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984). That book described that big brother thingy that we had always talked about. By the time I read that book, 1984, the actual year, was rapidly approaching. I thought to myself that Orwell missed this one for sure. There was no way our government was capable of pulling off the stuff he wrote about.

In early 2000, we didn’t even know who our President was going to be. You see, there was some azzhole down in Florida named chad, that caused a lot of confusion on who actually won the Presidency. Well, ‘ol Chad decided that Dubya was going to be our President. On 9/11/2001, our country experienced a heinous act of aggression like never before. This act completely shocked, and enraged the citizenry of the United States. Our government, ran by Dubya, reacted swiftly and without prejudice toward our aggressors. There was a bipartisan call for more security for our nation against such acts ever happening again. We, as a nation, had the means and resources necessary to recognize such threats, and prevent such acts from happening again. Without going into all the details of how information sharing amongst agencies was to take place, and the new alphabet agencies started as part of this new effort to thwart “Terrorism” in our country, The Patriot Act was born.

In 2013, this kid named Edward Snowden came along, and told the citizens of the United States that our government was indeed spying on us, on level we could not even fathom. This Snowden guy had to leave the country, because the U.S. government considered him a traitor. The general population was split on their opinions as to Snowden being a traitor, or actually a Patriot.

Let me just say, that in my opinion, The Patriot Act is the very reason that “big brother” actually became reality. This is a short take on what I believed happened, and how the citizens of this country were hoodwinked into allowing such a liberty stripping law to get passed. You know, perfect timing in world events, to make us feel all warm, cozy and “safe.”

BTW, Edward Snowden is no traitor to the American People.

Hillery Clinton had Huma abedin. I believe her family had deep ties to the Iranian government. There have been many clear and present dangers to this country and all of them are embedded in the Democrat party.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has asked Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison to investigate USA Powerlifting over a decision to bar transgender women from competition because testosterone is used in transitioning.

In a letter sent to Ellison in late January, Omar said her request was spurred on by USA Powerlifting’s decision to deny the application of JayCee Cooper, a trans woman, to compete in a Minnesota event.


“I urge you to reconsider this discriminatory, unscientific policy and follow the example of the International Olympic Committee,” Omar wrote. “The myth that trans women have a ‘direct competitive advantage’ is not supported by medical science, and it continues to stoke fear and violence against one of the most at-risk communities in the world.”

So looks like she has been sleeping with a married white male staffer of hers. Why do all these racist democrats who say white people are the problem....get with white people?

Kamala and AOC quickly come to mind.

Her Muslim Sharia Law supporting constituents should be gathering their rocks and stones so that they give her a proper Sharia sendoff. No wonder, she didnt want to get sent back.

With this, the shady campaign funds issue, and the marriage to her brother. I am starting to think she may not want the spotlight she previously craved.

I don't generally contribute to political candidates or causes, but I'd contribute to a ticket to send her *** back to where she came from after a very public outing of why she's being excommunicated... Her "people" would be waiting anxiously for her arrival... with stones at the ready!!
