    Minnesota Democrat criticized for anti-Israel statements, BDS supportHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hit with a backlash over her decision to assign freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, despite the Minnesota Democrat’s record of anti-Israel advocacy. The House Republican leadership blasted the decision, citing Ms. Omar’s 2012 tweet saying that Israel had “hypnotized the world” and was guilty of “evil doings,” as well as her support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. “It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a...

    It appears that the leadership of the Democratic Party has gone completely anti-Israel and is warming up to Jew-hatred. The appointment of Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee – and the welcome extended to her by the chairman, (former) Israel-supporter Rep. Eliot Engel – confirms that the Democrats' big tent now extends to those who believe that Jews in Israel wield magical power to "hypnotize" non-Jews into acquiescence to their "evil." Omar was triumphant yesterday on her appointment to the plum committee: Ilhan Omar ✔@IlhanMN I finally have committee assignments and I am excited 1st choice- House...

    The Wall Street Journal reports Muslims lobbied Twitter to silence the voice of journalist Laura Loomer. As WND reported, Loomer recently chained herself to Twitter headquarters after the social-media giant banned her. The Journal explained Twitter invited a number of outside groups to help it decide who should be banned after criticism for not policing its content. “That solution is creating a new set of problems—public fights, complaints and legal battles,” the paper said. Loomer, described as a conservative Jewish activist, said she didn’t know until recently that outside groups and individuals had privately lobbied Twitter executives to remove her...

(AP Photo/Jim Mone) WASHINGTON — A newly elected congressperson from Minnesotta who spoke out against boycotts of Israel during her campaign now says she supports the BDS movement. Ilhan Omar, one of two Muslim women who became the first elected to Congress last week, had said during her campaign that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement was “counteractive”...

    Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar, a Muslim refugee from Somalia and a newly elected U.S. representative, is facing backlash for her inconsistent stance on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel.In a statement to the Muslim Girl blog days after the midterm election, her campaign made it clear that the congresswoman-elect supports the movement.“Ilhan believes in and supports the BDS movement, and has fought to make sure people’s right to support it isn’t criminalized,” a statement explained.

    the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board opened a formal investigation of her after reviewing evidence of several violations. Omar has also made, and defended, anti-Semitic comments as direct and vicious as any spoken by a U.S. politician in a generation. In 2016, an anonymous writer on SomaliSpot.com published verified photos and Minnesota state records suggesting that Rep. Omar is a serial felon and fraudster. Since then, the additional evidence discovered to back these claims -- and the absence of contradictory evidence -- are almost as remarkable as Minnesota media's refusal to lift a finger investigating her for two years. Allegations against...

    Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) embraced anti-Semite and alleged Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Linda Sarsour this week on their first day in Congress. The photos came from Sarsour’s verified Facebook account where she praised both freshman Democrats. “These past two years have been difficult,” Sarsour wrote in a post that featured herself and Omar. “So much heartache, exhaustion, pain, losses, drama, bad policy after bad policy YET today was all worth it. Today was JOY. Today was PRIDE. Today was full of laughter and tears. For every lil girl, especially lil girls of color – this is...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s first speech from the House floor has set a minor record with C-SPAN. Ocasio-Cortez slammed the Trump Administration over the partial government shutdown in her remarks. A C-SPAN tweet of her nearly four-minute speech garnered 1.16 million views in a little more than 12 hours, setting a record for the most-watched Twitter video from the outlet of any remarks by a House member, according to a tweet from Howard Mortman, C-SPAN’s communications director. By Friday morning, it had surpassed 2.3 million views, with more than 13,000 retweets and over 46,000 likes.

    Three days before the 2019 Women’s March, organizers announced they had moved to a smaller venue as the third annual march confronts bad weather, a government shutdown and a dramatic drop of support on the left. The Women’s March said Wednesday it had changed its starting point to Freedom Plaza at the corner of 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue — instead of the National Mall — with plans to march “past the Trump Hotel.” The Women’s March said it had been required to relocate by the National Park Service due to snow and accused the agency of pressuring the group...

    – As the Women’s March continues to suffer defections over its leaders’ associations with Louis Farrakhan, the controversial preacher’s Nation of Islam has been hitting back, accusing “Jewish and white women” of trying to undermine the movement ahead of its planned march this weekend. In racially-charged columns, the Nation of Islam organ The Final Call has been slamming prominent critics who have raised concerns about anti-Semitism and called on the Women’s March leaders to resign. In doing so, the writers have accused “white women,” among other things, of supporting the oppression of blacks, and of historical complicity in rapes and...

    The Democratic National Committee has dropped its partnership in the Women’s March over anti-Semitism concerns, according to a Democratic source. This development comes amid accusations of anti-Semitism within the movement’s leadership, causing many organizations to drop their support of the this year’s march, scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 19. There have been calls for firms to back out.

    Women’s March national co-chair Tamika D. Mallory’s attempt to tamp down anti-Semitism concerns prior to next weekend’s march may have backfired. Ms. Mallory refused to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in an appearance Monday on ABC’s “The View” under tough questioning from co-host Meghan McCain, who asked about Mr. Farrakhan’s past comments on “wicked Jews, “false Jews,” and homosexuality. “We did not make those remarks,” said Ms. Mallory. “What I will say to you is that I don’t agree with many of Minister Farrakhan’s statements.” Asked about his remarks about Jewish people, Ms. Mallory repeated, “As I said,...

    The Women’s March, which was hailed as an international rebuke of President Trump in 2017 when throngs of activists took the streets the day after his inauguration, is steadily losing supporters amid an anti-Semitism scandal that won't go away. The march will be held in D.C. again on Saturday at the National Mall, but the controversial ties of organizers have caused the campaign to lose steam. Groups ranging from EMILY’s List to The National Council of Jewish Women as well as high-profile Democratic politicians are keeping their distance, even as other prominent organizations stand by the movement -- and newly announced 2020 candidate...

    The 2018 midterms were a disaster for House Republicans. Democrats gained 40 seats, retook the majority, and, to our horror, Nancy Pelosi is speaker again. They were elected to stop Trump, to block him at every turn, and lead the effort for his impeachment and removal from office. Any Democrat who says otherwise is lying. The base demands Trump go at all costs. The younger, feistier Democrats say that openly. The older crew tries to downplay it, but ultimately that’s their goal. They’re banking heavily that the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the DOJ’s Russia probe,...

    New York’s leaders are pushing an extreme pro-abortion bill that will strip away all protections for unborn babies and some for mothers, too. The “Reproductive Health Act” redefines a “person” as “a human being who has been born and is alive,” according to Breitbart.The state bill also describes abortion as a “fundamental right.” This language will allow unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth in New York. It looks like it will pass in the new Democrat-controlled state legislature this winter. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has threatened to hold up the budget until it does. The...

    As Twitchy reported earlier Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other members of the House decided they would march over to the Senate to hand-deliver a letter to Sen. Mitch McConnell, letting the media tag along to help give the impression that the Senate Majority Leader is afraid of them. “Where’s Mitch is my question,” said Ocasio-Cortez before her group checked for McConnell in the Republican cloakroom, where naturally he’d be hiding from Democrat members of Congress. Now Ocasio-Cortez, who just complained about how she’s getting too much attention from the media, is staging #WheresMitch photos that look like the cover...

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., acknowledged Wednesday on Fox News' "Special Report with Bret Baier" that border walls "obviously" work in some areas, and he rejected suggestions that barriers should be removed where they already exist. The No. 2 House Democrat additionally asserted that the question of whether to fund President Trump's proposed border wall -- a dispute at the center of the unprecedented partial federal government shutdown -- is "not an issue of morality." Hoyer's comments were seemingly at odds with the positions of other House Democrats, who have argued that border walls like the one Trump is...

    President Trump hosted a number of Republican and Democratic House lawmakers at the White House Wednesday to negotiate over border security and end the ongoing government shut down. “The President and his team had a constructive meeting with bipartisan members of the problem solvers caucus. They listened to one another and now both have a good understanding of what the other wants. We look forward to more conversations like this,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said about the meeting.  These House Democrats in the centrist Problem Solvers Caucus met today with @realDonaldTrump in the Situation Room to discuss the shutdown: Josh...

    We all knew that there would be zero bipartisanship this Congress. We started the year with the government in a shutdown over border security. House Democrats retook the majority in 2018. They’re in no mood to play ball with the Trump White House. The fight is over a mere $5 billion for part of the border wall. Reportedly, Trump offered to re-open the government if he got some of the money. Democrats rejected it; they’re more concerned with scoring points. Yet, as the Democrats suit up for battle against the Trump presidency, their left flank could cause trouble as well....
