Trump Defends Pelosi as Dem Split Deepens

Tensions are rising inside the Democratic Party right now, as senior politicians get increasingly spooked at the high-profile antics of the party’s left. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has upset fans of the young radical group centered around Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Now Pelosi has an unlikely defender — President Trump.

The President said, “I think Cortez is being very disrespectful to someone who has been there a long time. I deal with Nancy Pelosi a lot, and we go back and forth, and it’s fine… Cortez should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect. She should not be doing what she’s doing. And I’ll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi that you know better than I do; she is not a racist. For them to call her a racist is a disgrace.”

ICE Targets Criminal Immigrants In Weekend Raids

Over the weekend, ICE began a long-overdue crackdown on some of the worst illegal immigrants who threaten American society. As a series of enforcement operations began across 10 cities, advocates of so-called “sanctuary city” policies protested, but the reality is that these people want to shelter criminals. ICE pointed out that anyone who’s in the country illegally should be removed, but the main target of these raids is a list of illegals who’ve committed a variety of crimes.

Several murders have been committed this year by illegals who had already perpetrated other serious crimes. As President Trump points out, one of his priorities has been to use ICE as a weapon against killer gangs like MS-13. Anyone who opposes the weekend’s raids is fighting to let foreign criminals keep preying on us. That’s not compassion; it’s lethal stupidity.

Antifa Terrorist Killed In Detention Center Attack

A far-left activist carried out a terrorist attack on a detention center in Tacoma, WA on Saturday morning, July 13th. Around 4 am guards at the facility saw a man armed with a rifle approach the perimeter and start throwing incendiary bombs at a propane tank, apparently trying to explode it. He failed to blow the tank, which could have caused a powerful fuel-air explosion and mass casualties but did set fire to a car. Police responded and there was a shootout, which ended with the attacker being killed.

Tacoma police identified the terrorist as 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen, an anarchist and member of extremist group Antifa. Friends of Van Spronsen later claimed he was trying to provoke a conflict, and that his attack was suicide by cop. Left-wing Twitter users flocked to glorify the gunman, calling him a “martyr” in a way that’s chillingly similar to the propaganda of ISIS and al Qaida.

Dems Panic — Poll Shows AOC Is Voter Repellant

Fiery freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the strongest firebrands in the Democratic Party right now — but Dem bosses aren’t cheering her on. A new poll carried out by the party shows that she’s one of the best known Democrat politicians — and also one of the least popular.

AOC and her clique might be popular with hard-left Democratic activists, but they’re not the people that need to be won over if the Democrats are going to challenge President Trump. It’s swing voters they need to persuade — and the pollsters say those swing voters know about AOC’s brand of socialism and don’t like it at all; 18% view it favorably, against 69% unfavorably. A leading Democrat said, “If all people hear about is AOC, it could put the House majority at risk.”
