‘The Squad’ reelected: Progressive group adds new members

Members of the progressive Democrat “squad” in Congress won their reelection bids in Tuesday’s House elections. In 2018 the group first made their debut, coming onto the scene after taking long-held incumbent Democrat seats in their districts. The group, now known as the ‘squad’ promised from from their inception to shift the Democratic party more to the left and change the political status quo. That’s exactly what they’ve done.

First, the group has had the support of the Democratic socialists like Senator Bernie Sanders, D-VT, and they’ve teamed up with him. One of their biggest issues is to push a sweeping climate change agenda, known as “The Green New Deal” to reduce to net-zero emissions by 2030.

Moreover, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, D-NY, Ilhan Omar, D-MN, Ayanna Pressley, D-MA, and Rashida Tlaib, D-MI have declared victories as results slowly rolled in Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.

These four women have also reportedly expanded this election, by adding three new progressive Democrats to their team. That group of new members includes Cori Bush, D-MO, Jamaal Bowman, D-NY, and Mondaire Jones, D-NY.

“This moment is brought to us by us, by our movement for social, racial, and economic justice. Now, our movement is going to Congress and we will beat the challenges of this moment and the movement side by side, arm in arm with our fists in the air, with our fists in the air ready to serve each other until every single one of us is free. Thank you for electing me as your first Black congresswoman here in the State of Missouri,” said Bush in her victory speech Tuesday night.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
