Ana Navarro Is Exposing The GOP’s Double Standard Of Letting Trump Share Classified Information Without Consequence

Ana Navarro was one of the most outspoken Republican critics of President Trump’s campaign and ultimate election. Navarro, like many prominent Latinxs in politics, spoke openly about their disdain for how Trump was demonizing and insulting the Latinx community from the very beginning with his announcement speech calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals. Since Trump’s victory, Navarro has offered constant sharply-worded criticisms of Trump and his administration. The latest Russia drama involving President Trump has not gone unnoticed by Navarro.

Republican political strategist Ana Navarro is calling out Congressional Republicans for not doing their job but rather toeing the party line.


The latest bombshell to come out of the White House is how President Trump invited Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, into the Oval Office with a photographer from a state-owned Russian news outlet. There is even speculation that the Russians, who are pretty gifted in espionage, could have slipped recording devices into the room with the U.S. president. No American press was allowed into the meeting, which has drawn its own ire from the American people and politicians. Since the meeting, it has been discovered that Trump shared highly classified information with the Russian representatives.

According to The Washington Post, the information was given to us by an ally with the long-held understanding that we would not be sharing this information with anyone else. The New York Times has further reported that the source of the information is Israel. The sharing of this information leaves the U.S. at risk of not being able to get necessary intel from the same source while also jeopardizing the lives of those involved with getting us the information in the first place. This prompted Navarro to call out all the GOP officials in Congress for not doing that job they are supposed to do that they would have quickly done if Clinton had made the same mistake: starting the impeachment process.

Despite denials from White House officials that Trump shared highly sensitive information, Trump himself owned up to it like only he can.


“I was in the room. It did not happen,” national security advisor H.R. McMaster told the press, according to The LA Times, before Trump’s early morning tweets.

Trump claims that he had the “absolute right” to share this information.


According to The Washington Post, a government official who knows the information said that Trump revealed “code-word” information, one of the highest classification levels in the U.S. government, with the Russian officials. This information is so sensitive that the same source told The Washington Post that it is information that we have yet to share with our own allies.

And Navarro’s Twitter shade didn’t end with just calling the GOP out for not doing their job. She straight up called them spineless.


People were living for Navarro’s Twitter attack.


That is really that only appropriate word for this level of political shade.

Her followers joined in on the trash talk.


S A V A G E !!

Others are hoping the that GOP will “rediscover their backbone.”


You know. It’s that thing that helps you stand up straight and connects to your skull. Yeah. That thing.

A few clever people started to give the unofficial spine search party a literary makeover.


#Genius

While others made mention of other body parts our representatives are missing.


Brutal.

Texas Republicans Are Recruiting An ‘Army’ of Poll-Watchers To Go Into Black and Brown Precincts To ‘Fight Voter Fraud’

The GOP’S voter-suppression tactics in Georgia have been gripping the nation. But now, the media is also turning its attention to other voter-suppression tactics in the rest of the country. Now, Texas Republicans are taking the heat.

According to Common Cause Texas, Texas Republicans are planning on recruiting thousands of volunteers create an “election integrity brigade”. They want the “brigade” to go into Black and brown neighborhoods in Houston and “fight voter fraud”.

A Texas GOP presentation was leaked that outlined plans to send an “army” of poll-watchers to Black and brown precincts.

“I’m trying to encourage and recruit, as a precinct chair, about 30 people in my precinct who will have the confidence and courage to come down in here…,” said an unnamed GOP official, pointing to majority non-white urban areas, “…in these areas where we really need poll-workers. Because this is where the problem is occuring.”

“So me finding poll-watchers out here, it helps, but it’s a pretty safe precinct”. He said this while pointing to majority-white Houston neighborhoods.

The video inspired outrage among people who saw these tactics as blatant attempts to suppress the voting rights of POC.

“The impetus for releasing [the video] right now is there are some bills in the legislature that seek to empower poll watchers in some really scary ways,” said executive director of Common Cause Texas, Anthony Gutierrez, to NBC News. “And also at the same time, take away the power of the presiding judge at the poll site from being able to remove a disruptive poll watcher.”

“It’s very clear that we’re talking about recruiting people from the predominantly Anglo parts of town to go to Black and Brown neighborhoods,” said Gutierrez to The Washington Post.

“This is a role that’s supposed to do nothing but stand at a poll site and observe,” he added. Why is he suggesting someone needs to be ‘courageous’?”

This “election integrity brigade” comes on the heels of a problematic election bill the Texas Senate just passed.

According to NBC News, the bill “bans overnight early voting and drive-thru early voting” and also “empowers partisan poll watchers.”

“It’s part of the intimidation, the confusion, the antics that (the Republican Party) has engaged in for so many generations that culminated in President Trump asking people to overturn the election,” said Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo to CNN.

“What they’re doing is filing bills that are essentially a poll tax that weaponize the election system against our own voters,” she continued. “And what they’re proposing is absolutely tragic and reminiscent of the worst of what we’ve seen in Texas and across the South since Reconstruction.”

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz are at it again on Twitter. This time it’s about immigration policy. After recently traveling to the US-Mexican border to underline the recent rise in immigration, Cruz accused AOC of pushing for a “full open borders” policy.

And of course, AOC got him with some solid zingers.

AOC in turn hit back at Cruz for recently fleeing his home state of Texas during its power grid collapse to vacation in Cancún.

In response to Cruz’s attack, AOC suggested Mexico avoid allowing Cruz in the next time he attempts to vacation there. She also called on him to resign from office for his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff.”

Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of hypocritically attacking the current administration’s detention of migrant children at the border after they supported President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant parents from their children.

Currently, Democrats like AOC are calling on Biden to impliment more liberal immigration policies.

Republicans have strongly expressed their dislike for the recent rise in migrants which has come as a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump’s most rigid border policies.

AOC is currently a co-sponsor of the Roadmap to Freedom resolution. The resolution calls on the Federal Government to develop and implement a Roadmap to Freedom “in order to overhaul the outdated immigration system in the United States that has gone without significant reform for decades, and to relieve the great human impact an unjust system bears on communities around the country.”
