Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) exploded on Thursday night over an ad created by an Asian Republican that slammed her for being a socialist, suggesting without evidence that the woman who created the ad was a white supremacist.

Elizabeth Heng, who ran for U.S. Congress last year in California, ran the ad during the third Democratic presidential debate on ABC News.

“This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” the ad begins while showing Ocasio-Cortez’s face bursting into flames. “Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism? My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life. That’s socialism — forced obedience, starvation.”

“Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white. I’m not outrageous, racist, nor a socialist,” Heng continued. “I’m a Republican.”

New Faces GOP, a group created by Heng, tweeted the video with the following caption: “We have a choice: Will we let socialists like [AOC] be the face of our future? Or will a new generation of conservatives step up & lead us? We’re launching New Faces GOP to help identify & support the next generation of GOP leaders.”

WATCH:

“Heng, in a brief telephone interview Thursday night, said she spearheaded the PAC to give back to her community and fight against what she described as the extreme left wing of the Democratic Party that’s promoting socialism,” The Fresno Bee reported. “Heng said that her run for Congress last year convinced her that if the Republican Party doesn’t broaden its base to include millennials, women and people of color, socialism will ruin the country.”

Ocasio-Cortez exploded over the ad, tweeting: “Republicans are running TV ads setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren’t racist. Life is weird!”

“Know that this wasn’t an ad for young conservatives of color — that was the pretense,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed without evidence. “What you just watched was a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case.”

“GOP’s message: No policy, no facts, just displays of violence + corporations like [ABC] & Sinclair who amplify them,” Ocasio-Cortez misleadingly claimed. “They profit from burning my likeness on TV. But who pays for heightened security? Who answers the phones for the threats resulting from a violent, false ad?”

Heng responded to Ocasio-Cortez, tweeting: “Not Republicans. Me. Are you really calling me a racist [AOC]? I’m calling all Democrats out for supporting an evil ideology. Or are you just in Congress to hang out with celebrities and tweet out ridiculous ideas like the green new deal?”

“[AOC] response is the Democratic [P]arty in a nutshell,” Heng continued. “They are more offended by truthful words than the acts of their political ideology that has killed millions of innocent victims. I don’t care about [AOC’s] feelings — I care about stopping her lies about the lies of socialism.”

Heng writes the following about New Faces GOP on the organization’s website:

New Faces GOP was formed because our country is at risk of being destroyed by extreme, socialist Democrats who want to upend the American way of life. If we are going to compete on the battlefield of ideas, we must find new faces from the Republican Party stand up to lead.

We need candidate from all races, ethnicities, gender, or geography. Our party has the ideas and solutions to fight back extremism and its our goal to equip new leaders with the tools to win.

The Democrats message is weak at best, and downright laughable at worst — but they have dynamic, young messengers who relate to the next generation of voters.

Republicans, by contrast, have a winning message, and provide serious solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems — yet we don’t have messengers to deliver our platform in a way that engages meaningful segments of the population.

It was once said that if Republicans were trying to sell sushi, they would call it “cold, dead fish.” In other words, it doesn’t matter that Republicans have the right ideas if we are not able to market ourselves effectively.

And that’s why New Faces GOP was formed. Our mission is simple: Help elevate the next generation of Republicans so that we can not only survive as a party, but expand beyond the boundaries we’ve set for ourselves. Identify the new faces of the GOP who will lead us into tomorrow.

An off-duty firefighter who had a firearm with him stopped a potential attack from taking place at a Walmart in Missouri after a 20-year-old man showed up to the store with a rifle, body armor, and over 100 rounds of ammunition.

“His intent was not to cause peace or comfort to anybody that was in the business,” Lt. Mike Lucas with the Springfield Police Department said. “In fact, he’s lucky to be alive still to be honest.”

Although it’s not yet clear what the man’s intent was, Lucas said, “We definitely have some crimes here.”

Lucas said that there may have been a Facebook Live posted by the suspect and that law enforcement officials are conducting an investigation and looking through the suspect’s social media.

KOLR news anchor tweeted “20-year-old man with rifle, handgun & body armor arrested at Walmart on Republic. SFD Police say he had 100+ rounds of ammunition. Off-duty firefighter with concealed carry gun held him at gunpoint until officers arrived about 3 minutes later”

The Springfield Police Department released this statement:

At approximately 4:10 p.m. Springfield Police Officers were dispatched to 3150 W. Republic Rd. to a Walmart Neighborhood Market. An armed white male in his twenties was detained by an armed off-duty fireman until officers arrived on scene and took the suspect into custody. No injuries were reported and no shots were fired. At this time, the investigation is on-going and we are working to determine his motives.

The incident comes after a white supremacist terrorist massacred nearly two dozen people in a domestic terror attack at a Walmart in El Paso last Saturday in which the terrorist targeted Latinos.

The tragedy has ignited the latest round of calls for gun control from the media and Democrat Party, demanding an “assault weapons ban” and more “background checks.”

An independent study commissioned by Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) found that the 1994 Clinton assault weapons ban did not reduce violence, and a recent report from CNN noted that changes to background check regulations would not have stopped the tragedy.

Alleged child sex predator Jeffrey Epstein was found injured in his New York City jail cell when authorities discovered him in the fetal position, according to local media reports.

NBC New York, which first reported the story, did not elaborate on when Epstein was found with the injuries in Metropolitan Correctional Center but noted that he was found “semi-conscious with marks on his neck.”

“Two sources tell News 4 that Epstein may have tried to hang himself, while a third source cautioned that the injuries were not serious and questioned if Epstein might be using it as a way to get a transfer,” NBC New York reported. “A fourth source said an assault has not been ruled out, and that another inmate was questioned.”

Epstein was arrested earlier this month for allegedly exploiting dozens of underage girls and sexually abusing them in either his NYC residence or in his Palm Beach residence.

NBC New York added that Epstein is now on suicide watch inside the facility.

New revelations about Epstein are seemingly made on a daily basis with the most recent development — outside of his injury — coming from a Daily Beast report today:

Days after Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest on sex-trafficking charges in New York, Bill Clinton distanced himself from the high-flying financier and convicted sex offender. The former president owned up to just six encounters with Epstein, starting in 2002: Four flights on the billionaire’s private jet, a single trip to his Harlem office, and one “brief visit” to his New York apartment, all with staff and security detail in tow.

Now, a Daily Beast investigation has uncovered ties between Epstein and the Clinton administration that date back to the president’s earliest days in the White House, casting doubt on the oft-circulated narrative that the two only began associating after Clinton left office.

Prominent Democrats and members of left-wing media melted down on Wednesday in response to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s bumbling hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee.

As the hearing unfolded, numerous critics across the political spectrum criticized Mueller’s seemingly dull mental dexterity and his inability to defend his work.

David Axelrod, a former senior advisor to President Obama, tweeted: “This is very, very painful.”

“This is delicate to say, but Mueller, whom I deeply respect, has not publicly testified before Congress in at least six years,” Axelrod added. “And he does not appear as sharp as he was then. And it helps explain why Mueller wanted his aide nearby.”

Leftist Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe tweeted: “Much as I hate to say it, this morning’s hearing was a disaster. Far from breathing life into his damning report, the tired Robert Mueller sucked the life out of it. The effort to save democracy and the rule of law from this lawless president has been set back, not advanced.”

MSNBC’s Jeremy Bash complained that Mueller “sucked the life out” of the Russia report and seriously “set back” efforts to hold Trump “accountable” — meaning impeachment.

Bash added that Mueller was “evasive,” “lost at times,” and was “very ineffective” at defending “his own work.”

WATCH:

Cook Political Reporter National Editor Amy Walter tweeted: “We are only 30 mins into this thing but I don’t think that this is going the way Democrats were hoping it would.”

Left-leaning journalist Michael Tracey tweeted: “Democrats didn’t even attempt to extract any new information from Mueller (which would ostensibly be the purpose of an oversight hearing). Instead they tried to goad him into dramatizing parts of the Report, which he repeatedly declined to do. It was a total embarrassment.”

“Given his poor memory, sluggishness, and lack of familiarity with his own Report, we now have more insight into why Mueller allowed his 2-year investigation to spiral out of control and devolve into absurdity,” Tracey added.

Former ICE Director Thomas Homan rendered socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez utterly speechless on Friday during a congressional hearing after the 29-year-old former bartender tried to grill him about immigration-related policies.

“It says the official recommendation, there were three different options presented, the third included the option for family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This initiative would pursue prosecution of all amenable adults including those presenting with a family unit.

“Mr. Homan, your name is on this, is this correct?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

“Yes, I signed that memo,” Homan replied.

“So, you are the author of the family separation policy?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

“I’m not the author of this memo,” Homan replied.

“You’re not the author, but you signed the memo?” Ocasio-Cortez pressed.

“Yes, a zero tolerance memo,” Homan responded.

“So, you provided the official recommendation to Secretary Neilson on families for the United States to pursue family separation?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

“I gave Secretary Nielson numerous recommendations on how to secure the border and save lives,” Homan responded.

“But it says here that you, you gave her numerous options but the recommendation was option three, family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“What I’m saying this is not the only paper where we had given the secretary numerous options to secure the border and save lives,” Homan responded.

“And so the recommendation of the many that you recommended, you recommended family separations?” Ocasio-Cortez continued to press as she seemed unable to understand Homan’s previous responses.

“I recommended zero tolerance,” Homan responded.

“Which includes family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez pressed.

“The same as is whatever U.S. citizen parent gets arrested when they’re with a child,” Homan said.

“Zero tolerance was interpreted as the policy that separated children from their parents,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, again not seeming to understand Homan.

“If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car, I’m gonna be separated,” Homan responded. “When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from their family.”

“Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime,” Ocasio-Cortez said, refusing to acknowledge the majority of people entering the U.S. at the southern border are not legitimate asylum seekers.

“When you’re in the country illegally, it’s a violation 8 United States Code 13:25,” Homan responded.

“Seeking asylum is legal,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

“If you want to seek asylum you go through the port of entry, you do it the legal way,” Homan fired back. “The Attorney General of the United States has made that clear.”

Ocasio-Cortez had no response for Homan and immediately moved on to question other people.

The Trump administration has started notifying illegal aliens that they are going to be subjected to massive fines — up to nearly $500,000 — for failing to leave the United States after being ordered to do so.

“The Department of Homeland Security sent out a batch of notices across the country to targeted individuals ordering them to pay fines of up to nearly $500,000 for ‘failing to depart the U.S. as previously agreed,’ among other factors,” NPR reported. “The letters come as the Trump administration prepares to carry out delayed immigration sweeps of migrant families who have received deportation orders. President Trump said Monday, while signing legislation providing $4.6 billion in funding to address the influx of migrants from Central America, that the immigration raids will begin after the July 4 holiday if Congress can’t pass new restrictions on asylum laws.”

NPR obtained a notice that was sent by a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officer to an illegal alien notifying them that “It is the intention of ICE to order you pay a fine in the amount of $497,777.”

ICE spokesman Matthew Bourke told NPR: “ICE is committed to using various enforcement methods — including arrest, detention, technological monitoring and financial penalties — to enforce U.S. immigration law and maintain the integrity of legal orders issued by judges.”

NPR added that ICE has said that the Immigration and Nationality Act allows the government the authority to impose fines against illegal aliens for not leaving the country.

This latest development in the administration’s war on illegal immigration comes as the president recently announced that ICE will likely be conducting immigration raids after July 4 targeting those who are in the country illegally.

Trump has also rattled off multiple tweets this week about the topic, ranging from adding the citizenship question on the 2020 census to calling out Democrats for failing to work with the administration to help solve the crisis on the southern border.

Tweets from Trump on the subject include:

“The News Reports about the Department of Commerce dropping its quest to put the Citizenship Question on the Census is incorrect or, to state it differently, FAKE! We are absolutely moving forward, as we must, because of the importance of the answer to this question.

“Our Border Patrol people are not hospital workers, doctors or nurses. The Democrats bad Immigration Laws, which could be easily fixed, are the problem. Great job by Border Patrol, above and beyond. Many of these illegals aliens are living far better now than where they came from, and in far safer conditions. No matter how good things actually look, even if perfect, the Democrat visitors will act shocked & aghast at how terrible things are. Just Pols. If they really want to fix them, change the Immigration Laws and Loopholes. So easy to do!”

“Now, if you really want to fix the Crisis at the Southern Border, both humanitarian and otherwise, tell migrants not to come into our country unless they are willing to do so legally, and hopefully through a system based on Merit. This way we have no problems at all!”

“If Illegal Immigrants are unhappy with the conditions in the quickly built or refitted detentions centers, just tell them not to come. All problems solved!”

“So important for our Country that the very simple and basic “Are you a Citizen of the United States?” question be allowed to be asked in the 2020 Census. Department of Commerce and the Department of Justice are working very hard on this, even on the 4th of July!”

Former Iranian Minister of Defense General Hossein Dehghan, currently an advisor for defense affairs to Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei, says that Iran will put America in “the garbage bin of history” if attacked and will eliminate Israel from “the face of the earth.”

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported that Dehghan made the comments on June 20 in an interview on Al-Nujaba TV (Iraq).

“It has become clear that what is important to the (Americans) is to protect the lives of their soldiers, and the equipment in their bases in the region,” Dehghan said. “They know full well that most of those bases are within the range of our missiles, and that our military can totally obliterate those bases. They consider this even before they take into account the lives and property of their allies.”

“Trump proved once again that he is merely an agent of his administration’s interests, that a war in this region would not be a walk in the park, that the United States is by no means ready for war, and that is completely understands how strong Iran is,” Dehghan continued. “What we understand from the behavior of the Americans is that they fear very much the break out of a war in the region. They are not ready for this, and they cannot assemble an international coalition, because there is no U.N. resolution to begin with. They don’t have global legal consensus to do this.”

“Israel has realized that this war would not be a walk in the park. The flame of this war will move immediately to Israel,” Dehghan concluded. “Israel knows that Iran will erase its entity and uproot it from existence in case of a war. In my personal opinion, this war will not take place – not because America does not want war, but because Iran is strong enough to engage in confrontation. Iran would achieve a great victory, and America would find itself in the garbage bin of history. There would no longer be an Israel on the land of Palestine. We would totally erase it from the face of the earth.”

Dehghan’s remarks come as Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, has continued to escalate tensions in the Middle East by attacking multiple oil tankers and shooting down a U.S. military drone.

President Donald Trump released a hilarious video on his Twitter account on Friday that essentially declared himself to be president forever, in what is a giant troll aimed at the media and the Democratic Party.

The video features a cover from TIME Magazine that shows Trump campaign yard signs lasting well beyond 2020. The video then alters the cover to show the campaign campaign yard signs extending thousands of years into the future while “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from Peer Gynt, by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg plays in the background.

WATCH:

The video may be in response to Politico report today that once again speculated that Trump may not leave office if he loses in the 2020 election.

Alleged journalists, leftists, and members of the Democratic Party freaked out in response to the video.

Anya Parampil tweeted: “What I want to know is WHO conceptualized this insanity?!”

Emma Vigeland tweeted: “I’m not one to get riled up over Trump tweets, but this one is pretty damn scary. This man doesn’t believe in a democratic form of government, and now he’s putting feelers out there. He has to be defeated.”

Kathryn Watson tweeted: “What is happening”

Brooke Binkowski tweeted: “‘It’s just a joke'”

Rabia O’Chaudry tweeted: “Tyrants and narcissists always think they will live forever”

Seth Abramson tweeted: “What Trump and his fans misunderstand—because they experience reality on a different continuum—is that voters and media would allow basically any POTUS of either party to quip once or twice about a third (or more) term. Trump gets heat because THIS continuum thinks he’s unstable.”

Jeet Heer tweeted: “You know who else wanted to be a God-Emperor till the end of time?* Correct answer: Leto Atreides II. Baron Vladimir Harkonnen could also work.”

Steve Kiggins tweeted: “Are we a dictatorship now? What is this?”

Sasha Stone tweeted: “Never forget, folks. Trump didn’t WIN. We lost. We failed to stop him because we are purity seeking, deeply privileged, entitled folks who do not know how to suck it up and get the job done. Until we do we will keep losing.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday night that for the first time in his memory he can finally agree with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about something — he is “the Grim Reaper” and he is here to kill the socialist agenda of the Democratic Party.

Earlier on Thursday Pelosi held a news conference where she laid out in a presentation all of the far-left policy proposals from the Democratic Party that McConnell is blocking.

Pelosi even tweeted out the graphic, writing: “[McConnell] is so obsessed with blocking votes on commonsense solutions passed by the House, he’s taken to calling himself ‘the Grim Reaper.’ But Americans are tired of waiting – they want action on their priorities now.”

“She’s got it right,” McConnell said. “She’s got it absolutely right. For the first time in my memory, I agree with Nancy Pelosi.”

“I am indeed the ‘Grim Reaper’ when it comes to the socialist agenda that they have been ginning up over the House with overwhelming Democratic support, and sending it over to America,” McConnell continued. “Things that would turn us into a country we have never been.”

“They are on their way to doing some additional things, in addition to things they’ve already done — the Green New Deal, Medicare For All,” McConnell added. “By the way, you may have mentioned this on your show, but they planned to make the District of Columbia a state, that will give them two new Democratic Senators, Puerto Rico a state, that will give them two more Democratic Senators, and as a former supreme court clerk yourself, you’ve surely noticed that they plan to expand to the Supreme Court. This is full bore socialism on the march in the House and yeah, as long as I’m the Majority Leader of the Senate, none of that stuff is going anywhere.”

Hours after President Donald Trump announced that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders would be leaving her position at the end of the month, a name emerged from multiple sources close to the president for who should be Sanders’ replacement.

Stephanie Grisham, the White House Director of Communications for first lady Melania Trump, has been a loyal soldier fighting to advance Trump’s agenda dating all the way back to his first month on the campaign trail in 2015 when she was a low-level press staffer.

In December, The Washington Post noted that Grisham has grown to become “one of the more powerful figures in the ever-evolving Trump White House” and referred to Grisham as “Melania Trump’s enforcer.”

A source close to the White House told The Daily Wire on Thursday night Grisham “has proven herself to be a stone-cold killer” and that “no one else comes close” to being able to match Grisham in her ability to command problems that arise.

The source said that Grisham was a “risk-free move for the administration in the run-up to perhaps the most important election in American history.”

“Grisham is pure Trump,” the source said. “She holds down the East Wing with ease and has no loyalties to any faction within the Republican Party. Members of the first family love her and know that she is fiercely dedicated and loyal.”

Another source, a Trump ally close to the President and the Trump family, told The Daily Wire: “Stephanie Grisham is a favorite of Trump loyalists, many in the national press corps, and most important, the Trump family. The First Lady loves Stephanie’s tenacity and loyalty, and President Trump has remarked that he respects Stephanie’s ability to stay cool under pressure and manage the toughest of news cycles. Stephanie might not be the first name that comes to mind for this role, but she’s the one person inside or outside the building who everyone nods their head and says, ‘She’d be great.'”

A third source, who is a former high-level Trump administration official, told The Daily Wire: “Stephanie is one of the last remaining Trump ‘originals’ in the White House. She’s been with him since the beginning, is unquestionably loyal and has the respect of the press corps. She’d be a total home run as press secretary — both for the President and his supporters.”

In The Post’s report, Sanders spoke highly of Grisham, saying: “During the campaign she developed a good relationship with the president, and that’s carried through. She has developed a great amount of trust from both the president and the first lady, which is a pretty high commodity here. There aren’t a lot of people who have a lot of regular interaction with both of them.”

The Post noted that Grisham is hard-nosed and unapologetic in her defense of the president and highlighted Grisham’s response to Trump mocking MSNBC co-host Mika Brzezinski over an apparent facial surgery she underwent.

Speaking on Melania’s behalf, Grisham said: “When her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.”

The Post noted the following story as an example of how Grisham takes command of a situation:

White House staffers are also learning that Grisham is not someone with whom to tangle. In preparation for Melania Trump’s first solo trip abroad, which she took to Africa this fall, deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel clashed with members of the first lady’s staff. Upon their return, Grisham and the first lady’s chief of staff, Lindsay Reynolds, approached White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly about the issue. When he took no apparent action, Grisham spoke directly to Melania Trump, who in turn spoke to her husband privately. Then, when still nothing happened, Grisham suggested to the first lady a different strategy: Without giving the West Wing warning, Grisham put out a statement: “It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House.”

Within days, Ricardel was out of the White House.

…never before has the East Wing issued a statement that resulted in the dismissal of a member of the West Wing, notes Myra Gutin, a professor of communications who studies the history of first ladies at Rider University in New Jersey.

Tom Horne, the former Arizona attorney general who hired Grisham, said: “She’s a very loyal type of person and when there are unfair attacks she responds strongly.”

One White House official told The Post that “whereas the president will tweet himself and react himself,” Melania’s “got Stephanie.”
