“Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Democratic freshman in Congress such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “know” they have to hold the center as a party. Pelosi also told ’60 Minutes’ correspondent Lesley Stahl that she rejects socialism and “it is not the view of the Democratic party.”
“I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic Party,” Pelosi told Lesley Stahl.”
CNN HOST: I’m interested in if you think your fellow Democrats and some of your Democratic contenders and competitors in this race for the White House have vilified big business in a way that is dangerous, and capitalism, when now we know more Democrats view socialism favorably than capitalism.
BUTTIGIEG: Well, I think the reason we’re having this argument over socialism and capitalism is that capitalism has let a lot of people down. I guess what I’m out there to say is that it doesn’t have to be so. I believe in Democratic capitalism. But the Democratic part is extremely important.
“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+🇺🇸Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” she tweeted on Sunday, her style curiously similar to Trump’s own.
In her scorn for the proposal, Cher joins a chorus of Democratic lawmakers and progressive activists, like fellow Hollywood celebrity Alyssa Milano, who have already admonished Trump for what they see as an attempt at revenge on migrant-friendly cities, mostly governed by Democrats.
The liberal outrage, however, was met with derision from Trump supporters, who pointed out that having talked the talk, Democrats and their supporters should now walk the walk and welcome the masses of Central American migrants with open arms.
Cher’s tweet has likewise triggered a major backlash.
“Hello! Looks like you just woke up,” one wrote, and many jokingly welcomed her to the conservative side.

“On Wednesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) asked representatives of Facebook and Twitter if a pro-life tweet quoting Mother Teresa constituted “hate speech.” They remained silent for ten seconds, and then the Twitter representative attempted to dodge the question.
“Here is a tweet that says, ‘Abortion is profoundly anti-woman,'” Cruz said, gesturing to a large picture of a tweet with a picture of the Roman Catholic saint Mother Teresa. “It’s a quote from Mother Theresa and this tweet was blocked. It is fairly remarkable that Mother Theresa is now deemed hate speech.””
New York lawmakers on Tuesday refused to advance a bill that would have provided free college tuition to the families of military personnel from the state who were killed in the line of duty.
The Assembly’s Higher Education Committee voted 15 to 11 to hold the bipartisan bill, effectively ending its chances of making it to a floor vote this session.
The move comes a week after lawmakers passed a $175 billion state budget that included $27 million to provide college tuition aid for undocumented immigrants.
“For the first time in California’s history, the state has appointed an undocumented resident to a statewide post, announcing the decision just a day after President Donald Trump attacked its immigration approach during a visit to San Diego.”
Democrats say that is totally unfair for them to be singled out after stopping the national border from being secured and creating sanctuary cities where federal immigration law is ignored…. say forcing them to take responsibility for their own laws is immature, mean, and nasty.
“They say ‘we have open arms.’ They’re always saying they have open arms. Let’s see if they have open arms.”
Trump’s comments breathed new life into the proposal, which could further rile lawmakers in Washington who say the president is going too far in his efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.
“Most recently, officials with the National ICE Council accused Nielsen of “grossly” mismanaging DHS and failing to acknowledge that the agency had been operating an expanded Catch and Release policy for border crossers and illegal aliens for months.
Her resignation follows by one day Trump’s yanking of ICE Nominee Ronald Vitiello — stunning all of Washington, as his confirmation was expected to “sail through.”
Trump said he wanted a “tougher direction” than Vitiello.”
“Sen. Cory Gardner said Thursday that President Donald Trump told him he’d sign legislation to ensure states can decide for themselves whether to legalize marijuana, but that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell needs some more convincing.”
