“”I’m a Jamaican immigrant. And I love America. Not the America radical socialists want to see, but the America that is a land of opportunity for all. That’s what I’m fighting for,” New York businesswoman Scherie Murray, 38, declared in a series of social media posts Wednesday announcing her candidacy for the Republican nomination in Ocasio-Cortez’s district (tweets below).
In her campaign launch, Murray has made clear that she’s not going to pull any punches on her potential opponent. “There’s a crisis in Queens and it’s called AOC,” Murray said in a tweet she’s pinned to the top of her page. “She isn’t worried about us — she’s worried about being famous. That’s why I’m running for Congress.”

“So who is paying for the tariffs? We know the U.S. government has collected over $60 billion in tariffs over the last 12 months, so it is clear that someone is footing the bill.

“The video below shows the current state of the border fence between the cities of San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico. Construction of a new 15-mile, 30-foot-high secondary fence is in progress at this time and is about half finished. A primary fence, fifteen miles long has been completed in the last couple of years. I hear these fences were both paid for by money appropriated during the Obama time and the primary fence was approved during the Obama years. That’s how slow the process is.” https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/08/video-construction-of-new-15-mile-30-foot-high-secondary-border-fence-continues-project-nearly-half-finished/
“Manchester Deputy Fire Marshal Mitchell Cady told DailyMail.com that Trump was right – that his crowd numbered ‘just over 11,500.’
Calling the president’s tweet ‘a topic of discussion around here,’ Cady revealed that ‘the arena staff said Elton John was around 11,300’ in April 2004.
Cady also said his office estimated that at least 8,000 people stood outside the arena in an overflow crowd area, watching the rally on jumbo TV screens.
…An official at the SNHU Arena who declined to be named, saying, ‘You’re not going to get me involved in all this political fighting,’ said Friday that empty ‘nosebleed seats’ would have been offset ‘by all the people cramming themselves into the standing-room space on the arena floor.’
‘The Trump people wanted the fire marshal to let more people in, and at some point they say no,’ the official said. But there were tons and tons more outside. It’s not like they couldn’t fill the place.’
