Representative Lauren Boebert delivered a fiery speech on the House floor Wednesday, slamming “Jihad Squad member” Ilhan Omar for funneling campaign cash to her husband and Eric Swalwell for ‘sleeping with a Chinese spy.’
Boebert (R-CO) made the shocking comments as she criticized a vote to censure GOP Representative Paul Gosar over his posting of an odd but harmless parody video showing the Arizona Republican striking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with cartoon swords.
Gosar would indeed be censured by the House and removed from his committee assignments over the video.
During her speech, Boebert made it clear she had disdain for Democrats wasting everybody’s time by debating and voting on such a ridiculous matter.
And she thoroughly eviscerated the majority party for not holding their own accountable.
Representative Lauren Boebert’s speech targeted several Democrats who have never been censured by the congressional body.
First up for a dressing down – Omar (D-MN) – whom Boebert joked about having – allegedly – married her brother, and for sending significant amounts of campaign cash to her latest husband.
“The Jihad Squad member from Minnesota has paid her husband, and not her brother-husband, the other one, over $1 million in campaign funds,” she said of Omar. “This member is allowed on the Foreign Affairs Committee while praising terrorists.”
This past June, Omar seemingly equated actions taken by the United States and Israel to those perpetrated by the Taliban and Hamas.
“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” she tweeted. “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”
Omar would later insist that she was speaking specifically about incidents regarding ICC (International Criminal Court) cases and was “in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.”
The Political Insider has consistently tracked reports of Omar funneling campaign cash to her ‘not brother-husband.’
Omar also has a consistent history of anti-Semitic remarks.
And, of course, in 2019, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on documents raising questions as to whether she previously married her own brother as a means to “skirt immigration laws.”
Hence, the vicious dig by Boebert. That said, fact-checkers have responded to the persistent rumors by labeling that story “unproven.”
The Colorado Republican then shifted her focus to Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) who, as opposed to Gosar’s video, actually encouraged violence against supporters of Donald Trump.
Waters even tried to intimidate the jury in the Derek Chauvin case, threatening violence in the streets if they did not find the former police officer guilty in the murder of George Floyd.
“A Democrat chairwoman incited further violence in the streets outside of a courthouse,” railed Boebert.
Boebert concluded her speech by hammering Eric Swalwell (D-CA) over his involvement with a suspected Chinese spy.
She labeled Swalwell’s indiscretions the “cherry on top” and outlined his alleged sexual relationship with Christine Fang.
Boebert even took a jab at his failed presidential campaign.
“My colleague and three-month presidential candidate from California, who is on the Intelligence Committee, slept with Fang Fang, a Chinese spy,” she said of Swalwell.
“Let me say that again. A member of Congress who receives classified briefings was sleeping with the enemy.”
“This is unacceptable!” she yelled as the speech concluded.
A bombshell Axios report last December indicated that a woman by the name of Christine Fang (aka Fang Fang) “took part in fundraising activity for Rep. Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign” and interacted with the Congressman “at multiple events over the course of several years.”
Fang had allegedly served as a Chinese Intelligence operative with China’s Ministry of State Security.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi actually re-appointed Swalwell to the Intelligence Committee in March.
If Republicans like Gosar make stupid inconsequential mistakes, they are censured and removed from their committee appointments.
If a Democrat incites violence, equates America to terrorist organizations, or ‘sleeps with the enemy,’ they get rewarded.
The GOP needs to follow Boebert’s lead and censure each one of these Democrat extremists if they take over the House in 2022.
