Rashida Tlaib is a Palestinian-American who ran unopposed and became one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress alongside Ilhan Omar, D-MN (a Somali-American elected in 2016). Democrats also elected Kyrsten Sinema, the first openly bi-sexual elected to the U.S. Senate. The newly elected Senator from Arizona refused to be sworn in on a Bible.
Rashida Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Kyrsten Sinema are a new breed of radical Democrats hell-bent on trying to destroy this president. Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez belong to the Democratic Socialists of America – an anti-American group that has no respect for the U.S. Constitution. These extremist Democrats are not interested in working with President Trump or Republicans to end the government shutdown and secure the southern border with Mexico. Their goal is to impeach this president and undermine the rule of law. They want bigger government, higher taxes, open borders, and they embrace radical Islamists and want to weaken the U.S. military. Their socialist agenda is evil, and it’s antithetical to everything that makes America the greatest and freest nation on this side of Heaven. We cannot allow them to succeed!
Newly elected Democrats are more radical than their predecessors. Lowlife Democrats like Rashida Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez have no respect for the rule of law. They abhor the constitution and the Judeo-Christian values that shaped this great nation. If we continue electing socialists, Muslims and pro-open border politicians who refuse to enforce our laws and protect our sovereignty – we will lose more American lives and eventually lose our country.

And so we have Rashida Tlaib, a 42-year-old Democrat, a lawyer, elected to Congress with 163 thousand votes from the 13th District in Michigan – one of the poorest sections of that state.
Most Americans outside of Michigan didn’t follow the election, so we had no idea of what Ms. Tlaib was like – at least until last Thursday night, after the new members of Congress were sworn in.
At a gathering that evening, she was feeling her oats with the victory and told the crowd that she told her son about winning and what would happen: “We’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherfu***r!”
Whew! Them’s fightin’ words, no matter where you’re from! But coming from a woman, a Muslim, just elected to Congress and just hours after her swearing-in, against a man who was elected president with 63 million votes – shows an ego and brashness she’s been hiding under her hijab.
If you’ve wondered if politics has scraped the bottom of the barrel, this is the proof.

Rep. Tlaib is the first female Palestinian-American in Congress and a Muslim. She planned to take the oath of office using former President Thomas Jefferson’s own Quran – changing her mind after she may have learned that his copy of Islam’s holy book helped persuade Jefferson to launch all-out war against the Islamist Barbary pirates.
One of Rep. Tlaib’s first acts as a national lawmaker reportedly was to modify a world map in her office to replace “Israel” with a state named “Palestine.”
How did a leftist Muslim from the Detroit area win seats in the Michigan legislature and now in Congress? Michigan has roughly 300,000 Arab-Americans, the highest proportion of any state, and two-thirds of them live in the four counties of the Detroit area.
This ethnic population is a magnet for more Arab immigrants, and a money magnet for Democratic candidates such as John Kerry who come fundraising and in search of Arab-American votes. Kerry, for example, gave a targeted speech to this audience condemning Israel and its wall that has successfully thwarted terrorism.
Henry Ford recruited “as far abroad as Iraq and Syria to find enough workers to assemble his cars,” Craig R. Smith and I wrote in our book “The Great Withdrawal,” and “imported the ancestors of today’s sizable Michigan Arab-American population.”
Tlaib was elected in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District, the third-poorest district in the United States. For 53 years it was represented by radical leftist Democrat John Conyers. Conyers’ website included a button that instantly translated everything from English to Arabic to serve his large ethnic voter base; Tlaib’s congressional website will almost certainly do likewise.
