The following article, FLASHBACK: Democrat Makes Fool of Herself on CNN — ‘We Know Walls Don’t Work’ (Watch), was first published on Flag And Cross.
If you have ever heard of Congresswoman Veronica Escobar you’re ahead of the curve.
She represents Texas.
Escobar appeared on CNN to say something so ignorant it would be surprising if she believed it herself.
From Free Beacon:
Rep. Veronica Escobar (D., Texas) said on Thursday that border walls “don’t work” and appeared to believe the United States should remove existing wall along the U.S. southern border.
“We know walls don’t work, that they don’t stop drugs. That they don’t stop migration,” said Escobar, who represents the congressional district–the 16th–where the border town El Paso is located.
So, why do other countries have walls on their borders?
Why do people in every country on earth have walls surrounding their homes?
Democrat logic, for ya!
Before departing to Texas on Thursday, President Trump spoke with the press outside of the White House.
He revealed what will happen if Republicans cave to Democrats on the border wall.
Trump: “I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency … I’m not prepared to do that yet, but if I have to, I will.”
“If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”
"I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency … I'm not prepared to do that yet, but if I have to, I will," President Trump says.

From The Hill:
The Democratic-led House approved a bill Wednesday to reopen the Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service and Small Business Administration, among other federal agencies.
The chamber voted 240-188 to advance the measure, with eight Republicans bucking party lines to back the bill, which is the first of four bills expected to be brought to the floor by Democrats.
The Republicans who voted to advance the measure Wednesday included Reps. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Will Hurd (Texas), Fred Upton (Mich.), John Katko (N.Y.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Greg Walden (Ore.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Herrera Beutler (Wash.).
Again, the names:
-Elise Stefanik (NY)
-Will Hurd (TX)
-Fred Upton (MI)
-John Katko (NY)
-Brian Fitzpatrick (PA)
-Greg Walden (OR)
-Adam Kinzinger (IL)
-Herrera Beutler (WA)
Abortion? No big deal.
Recklessly wasting taxpayer dollars? Whatever.
Building a border wall to keep out intruders and defend the American people? PREPOSTEROUS!
That’s my impersonation of a liberal.
Check out President Trump’s thoughts on the “immoral” wall…
“Well, then you got to do something about the Vatican, because the Vatican has the biggest wall of them all. The wall is immoral? Look at all of the countries that have walls, and they work 100%. It’s never going to change.”

Trump on foriegn aid:
“We spend in Afghanistan more in one month than what we’re talking about for the wall. The $5.6 billion is such a small number, literally, it’s one month in Afghanistan, and we’re talking about national security. This isn’t just a border, this is national security.”

Important meeting today on Border Security with Republican and Democrat Leaders in Congress. Both parties must work together to pass a Funding Bill that protects this Nation and its people – this is the first and most important duty of government…

…I remain ready and willing to work with Democrats to pass a bill that secures our borders, supports the agents and officers on the ground, and keeps America Safe. Let’s get it done!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), like every single member of her party, does not understand what it means to budget.
Alexandria claims the Pentagon lost $21 trillion.
$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions “could not be traced, documented, or explained.”
$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T.
That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.
And that’s before our premiums. https://t.co/soT6GSmDSG
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) December 2, 2018
There’s a huge problem with AOC’s math:
Wow. You claim $21 Trillion in Pentagon Waste? The entire Pentagon budget from 1789-2018 has totaled $18 trillion,
Come on, This is embarrassing. https://t.co/ezdhqWQFyc
— Brian Riedl (@Brian_Riedl) December 2, 2018
D’OH! The numbers just don’t add up, Alexandria.
Just like a Democrat Socialist, isn’t it? Pulling money from out of thin air!
This is a wild misinterpretation of the Nation article. A key point of the article is these reported amounts do not reflect the Pentagon’s actual spending behavior. https://t.co/O3w6m1kBdV

This is annoying because AOC is making a bad/self defeating argument for something I support. 1, "can't be audited because DOD is bad at accounting" is not the same as "wasted." Makes her look like she doesn't know what she's talking about. https://t.co/DVzrUB8bSr

Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.
Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.
See her tweet:
How is Columbus Day a holiday but Election Day not?
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) November 18, 2018
Christopher Columbus discovered America; Erica Election did not.

If only this were part of her campaign ad….. she wouldn’t have been voted in as an elected official

Why do you need Election Day to be a holiday?
— EC (@EdnaV4) November 18, 2018
10 days on the job and you are already looking to manufacture more days off.

Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.
People keep giving me directions to the spouse and intern events instead of the ones for members of Congress
