      I saw that Tlaib was trending and had to share this.

      where I will point at you, and you will then raise your hand and frown and nod, okay?”

      Photo opp. People are desperate to see what they want to see. Tlaib is a sellout, just like Yasser Arafat was. She is not worth giving the benefit of the doubt when she has failed to do anything effective whatsoever.

      Oh, she DOES have a potty mouth (making her eligible to go Hollywood after her stint in DC ends), encouraging her fans that when it comes to protest, nobody will trump her verbal filth.

      The opinions and personal views expressed herein are solely those of the author, and should never be taken seriously.

      More lousy theater.

      She’s never challenged Joe on one important thing,and she never will.

      People are just so desperate to believe in someone,anyone.

      I will look for some facts again

      NPR

      “Palestinian human rights are not a bargaining chip and must be protected, not negotiated,” the aide said Tlaib expressed to Biden. “The U.S. cannot continue to give the right-wing [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu government billions each year to commit crimes against Palestinians. Atrocities like bombing schools cannot be tolerated, much less conducted with U.S.-supplied weapons.”

      (Snip)

      “Congresswoman Tlaib reiterated that the status quo is enabling more killing, that the current U.S. approach of unconditional support for the Israeli government is not working, and that the White House must do far more to protect Palestinian lives, dignity, and human rights,” the aide said.

      Tlaib’s remarks to the president echoed an impassioned speech she delivered on the House floor last week, in which she called to end the “apartheid system” and “racism” she said have been exacted on Palestinians by the Israeli government.

      The biggest difference between the Justice Democrats and The Establishment is the Israel/Palestine issue. The Israel lobby knows this. They also know they are younger than Establishment Democrats

      @MizzGrizz

      I think some don’t actually care about this issue or a lot of issues but they will use issues to bash The Squad.

        –Ain’t it the truth.

        Rashida’s nationality may or may not be of some note here,but she  and the rest of the Squad have not broken with Biden on any issue or called his conservatism to account,@jonlp,And there’s no reason to think she’d do it now,even though it’s my understanding she has family over there.

      AOC among most ineffective lawmakers in Congress, according to study

      (Snip)

      AOC was ranked No. 230 out of 240 Congressional Democrats in terms of effectiveness, the study found.

      Compared with others in her circle of Congressional allies, collectively known as the “Squad,” AOC was deemed less effective than Ilhan Omar, who sponsored 33 bills, and Rashida Tlaib, who had some of her bills advance to committee, with one becoming a law. Tlaib was ranked No. 92 among the 240 lawmakers.

      I have to dig for facts based on the sellout talking points and that article was used to bash AOC but they same study ranks Tlaib as one of their more effective Representatives.

      The sellout people can’t even keep their facts straight.

      So I think Tlaib’s effort was worth it.

      The U.S. policy of committing and supporting war crimes that “align with U.s. interests” will not be altered.  Not by her, or the squad, or the so called justice democrats.

      It wasn’t long ago that a proposed 10% cut to the military budget in favor of things like housing and food for the poor… was overwhelmingly opposed and ultimately defeated by the democrats.

      The “progressive” democrats, such as they are or may be, have little power to accomplish anything in any event.  They are overwhelmingly outnumbered – and all too quick to give in at times when they might make a difference.

      I am not impressed.  It will take more than words and outrage to change anything.  Biden is far too much of a coward to give a damn anyway.

      If you look at the full-view photo, you see Tlaib and Jill Biden have their arms on each other.

      Not sure this is really some “confrontation” at all.  Looks more like people talking to each other.

      Hold that bill to ransom so that all aid to Isreal or arms to Isreal is cut off.  You think Rashida is going to withhold her vote and persuade two of her fellow squad members to withhold their votes so that she can get some leverage?

      Why is Doctorate Jill all up in the conversation? Who elected her? Or is the most qualified man for president unable to speak for himself?

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
