Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threaten to create an enemies list of Democrats after passing gun control legislation

March 1, 2019

  There has been a bit of a civil war brewing in the Democratic party between the few remaining moderates in the party and the radicalized far-left hate-mongering Democrats and apparently it came to a head yesterday after the Republicans in the House won a procedural vote because all Democrats did not stick together.

  A frustrated Nancy Pelosi called a meeting and basically told Democrats they are either with her or against her, here is more:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, known for her ability to keep her caucus together, is frustrated that her party is allowing Republicans to leverage the procedural tool as a political weapon.

“To those who think that they have to go down a certain path, understand the pressure you are putting on your colleagues,” Pelosi told Democrats during the caucus’s weekly whip meeting Thursday, according to a source in the room. “So, we are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision.”

  The new defacto head of the Democratic party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took it a step further by pretty much warning the defectors that she is keeping an enemy list and will use it to make sure they lose their reelection bids.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was among House Democrats who laced into moderates Thursday — threatening to run those who side with Republicans out of office in the 2020 primaries, according to a new report.

The hard-left freshman congresswoman led the charge in a closed-door session, saying some of her moderate colleagues are “putting themselves on a list,” her spokesman Corbin Trent told the Washington Post.

Ocasio-Cortez suggested she would help liberal activists to unseat moderates in the next election.

  I find this little civil war to be quite entertaining and actually quite fascinating, but what I find even more interesting about this story is the issue which “triggered” these two people.

  The House Democrats passed a bill which would require universal background checks on all gun sales but the Republicans were able to use a procedural tool to amend the bill so that if an illegal immigrant tried to purchase a weapon he or she would be reported to ICE.

But 26 moderate Democrats sided with Republicans in amending the bill to include a provision that requires a notification to ICE if an illegal immigrant wants to purchase a firearm, the Washington Post reported.

  You really must stop and let that sink in for a moment or two in order to grasp it fully. If a background check turns up anything in an American citizen’s past which would prevent a person from purchasing a weapon he or she will be denied that weapon. However, if a background check turns up an outstanding warrant on an American citizen you can rest assured the proper authorities will be notified and it will lead to an arrest.

  But if an illegal immigrant tries to purchase a weapon the proper authorities will not be notified and he or she will be allowed to go on their merry way, afforded a luxury not enjoyed by an American citizen.

  The fact that Republicans were able to add this to the bill before it passed has infuriated the leaders of the Democratic party and if that does not show you that the party favors illegal immigrants over American citizens nothing will.

    Welfare, food stamps, drivers license, subsidized housing, free health care and education, no income taxes, illegal voting….and oh yes-illegal firearms. It’s a great country.
