Housing Secretary Ben Carson unloaded on controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar Wednesday after the far-left legislator accused him of being “sleepy” during his testimony on Capitol Hill.
“Not sure he was fully awake, maybe he meant to reclaim his time back to sleep,” posted Omar after a fiery exchange with Rep. Pressley.

“Since you brought it up… I know what it’s like to actually be sleepy, especially after 18-hour surgeries and operating on babies in the womb. I hope @IlhanMN knows I care about all people, even those she doesn’t recognize as having a right to life,” fired-back Carson.

The abortion debate has taken center stage in recent weeks, with Democrats passing legislation enabling late-term abortions and Republican legislatures passing bills that outlaw the procedure once a ‘heartbeat’ is detected.
Alabama recently signed into law new rules that would make performing an abortion a felony and could carry a 99 year sentence for doctors willing to provide the operation.
Read the full text of HB314 below:
This bill would make abortion and attempted abortion felony offenses except in cases where abortion is necessary in order to prevent a serious health risk to the unborn child’s mother.
This bill would provide that a woman who receives an abortion will not be held criminally
culpable or civilly liable for receiving the abortion.
Relating to abortion; to make abortion and attempted abortion felony offenses except in cases where abortion is necessary in order to prevent a serious health risk to the unborn child’s mother; to provide that a woman who receives an abortion will not be held criminally culpable or civilly liable for receiving the abortion; and in connection therewith would have as its purpose or effect the requirement of a new or increased expenditure of local funds within the meaning of Amendment 621 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, now appearing as Section 111.05 of the Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended.

FIREWORKS: Ben Carson SHUTS DOWN Maxine Waters Over Puerto Rican Recovery
Dr. Ben Carson shut-down hyper-liberal Congresswoman Maxine Waters on Thursday, after the left-wing lawmaker tried to convince the HUD Secretary to denounce President Trump’s hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.
Dr. Carson was speaking before the House Committee on Financial Services when the firebrand legislator pounced; pressing the Secretary and staunch Trump supporter over tweets the President made earlier this week.
“This morning, Trump threatened to abandon Puerto Rico recovery efforts. President Trump served notice Thursday that he may pull back federal relief workers from Puerto Rico, effectively threatening to abandon a US territory amid a staggering humanitarian crisis in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria […] Do you agree with the President?” asked Waters.
“I certainly agree that Puerto Rico is a very important territory, and the people from Puerto Rico have contributed greatly to the culture of America,” fired-back Carson.
“I’m not talking about that. What I’m talking about is these tweets,” she pressed.
“I have no intention of abandoning Puerto Rico, they’re a very important part of who we are,” said the Housing Secretary. “Our job is to make sure that we take care of a disaster that has occurred. Of course, it should not be abandoned.”
“There’s no question that there have been a lot of difficulties in Puerto Rico,” added Carson.

FIREWORKS: Mad Maxine Goes After 'Educated Fool' Ben Carson
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters viciously attacked Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson this week, calling the esteemed neurosurgeon an “educated fool” who doesn’t understand the difference between “slavery and immigration.”
Waters was speaking at the National Black Caucus Foundation on Thursday when she suddenly swiped Ben Carson, saying he and others in Trump’s cabinet were part of the “Kremlin Klan.”
“Look at Ben Carson, my god. My grandmother would call him an educated fool,” said Maxine. “Here’s a man who has a reputation of being a very highly competent surgeon, but when he talks about poor people he says they’re the cause of their poverty.”
“He doesn’t understand why you didn’t do what he did. Why you didn’t make it like he made it. He doesn’t know the difference between slavery and immigration. He’s coming before my committee. If you think I took Mnuchin on, you watch what I’m gonna do to Ben Carson,” she warned.
“All of these people in the cabinet that he has chosen to run this country, if we’re not upset something’s wrong with us,” Waters added.
Watch Maxine’s address above… The fireworks start at 8:00.
