    In New York’s 16th congressional district, Jamaal Bowman, an African American former middle school principal backed by the Justice Democrats – as were all four squad members in 2018 – has declared victory over Rep. Eliot Engel, the 73-year-old chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and a member of Congress since 1989. . . . “I’m a Black man raised by a single mother in a housing project,” Bowman tweeted on Wednesday. “That story doesn’t usually end in Congress. But today, that 11-year old boy beaten by police is about to be your Representative. I can’t wait to get...

    Merkel outlined her objectives Thursday for Germany’s forthcoming 6-month presidency of the EU, saying a more Global role and Enhanced International Governance are a way forward. This is not the first time Merkel has touted an E.U. global role...Her simple solution remains: more E.U. in more places more often. The presidency of the Council of the European Union passes among member states on a rotating basis and lasts for a six-month period, with Germany taking the role from July 1 until the end of the year.

    A pair of top Democrats has introduced a bill aimed at blocking President Trump’s plan to withdraw thousands of U.S. troops from Germany. The bill, introduced by Senate Foreign Relations Committee ranking member Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) and House Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) in their respective chambers, would prohibit funding to implement a withdrawal in Europe unless several conditions are met. “The current U.S. troop presence in Germany is in the U.S. national security interest. Full stop,” Menendez said in a statement. “The administration has made no effort to explain how our country is stronger because of this...

    Powerful Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) members are rallying behind longtime Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) as he fends off a tough primary challenge from a progressive African American candidate, Jamaal Bowman. Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), whose endorsement helped propel Joe Biden to the presidential nomination, and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), the caucus chairman seen as the heir apparent to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-N.Y.), threw their support behind Engel, a pro-Israel Jewish American and 16-term House veteran, over the weekend. So has the influential House Financial Services Committee chairwoman, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), and the CBC’s political action committee, led by...

    Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., was caught on a hot mic Tuesday saying he “wouldn’t care” about not being allowed to speak at a news conference about the unrest in his Bronx district following the death of George Floyd – if he wasn't in a competitive Democratic primary. “If I didn’t have a primary, I wouldn’t care,” Engel can be heard telling Bronx President Ruben Diaz twice, as he asks for a chance to speak at a news conference with city and state officials. “Don’t do that to me,” Diaz responded.

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 03.11.2020 | lc/rc (AP, AFP)
    Both chambers of the US Congress on Wednesday gave final approval to a resolution to restrain President Donald Trump from attacking Iran. The vote comes after months of soaring tensions between the US and Iran. The House of Representatives voted 227-186 to join the Senate in support of the resolution. The measure would prevent any military action against Iran without Congress voting for it explicitly. However, the resolution is likely to be vetoed by Trump, due to the lack of a majority within the Democratic Party and divergent Republicans. […] The resolution “sends a clear message that American people don’t...

    House Republicans are calling for the committee chairpersons overseeing the impeachment inquiry to release the guidelines and regulations under which depositions and transcriptions of testimony are being conducted. “We write to demand the release of the rules that are governing the depositions and transcribed interviews being conducted by the joint action of your three committees,” nearly 80 GOP lawmakers said in their Friday letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) and Oversight and Reform Committee acting Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) "The secrecy in which these depositions and interviews are being conducted,...

    President Trump is barreling toward a showdown with Congress over his decision to pull back U.S. troops in northern Syria despite widespread opposition. The announcement, which caught leadership and traditional GOP allies flatfooted, sparked a wave of condemnation, with Republicans calling it a “disaster in the making,” a “catastrophic mistake” and a “terrible decision.” Lawmakers are already weighing how to respond to Trump’s decision, setting the stage for a high-profile clash with Trump as soon as Congress returns from a two-week break on Monday. “Congress must and will act to limit the catastrophic impact of this decision,” said Rep. Liz...

    YOU know that the truth has been turned upside its head – that the west has gone off its axis – when a consistent, moral Congressional voice against Islamic terrorism, Rep. Engel (D-NY), is muted. DOA. Effectively, said heretofore mainstream Democrat can no longer be relied upon to lead the way. Inexorably, a tragedy of monumental proportions. In tandem, the newly reduced sheeple demonstrated his downfall via his participation in the latest scalp-hunt, that is, IMPEACHMENT! Craven-like....

    House Democrats have followed through on their threat to issue a subpoena to the White House for documents concerning President Trump's dealings with Ukraine. The chairmen of three House panels notified acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney of the subpoena in a letter on Friday. The subpoena is being issued by the chamber's Oversight and Reform Committee. Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) warned in a memo on Wednesday that he would issue the subpoena if the White House didn't comply by the end of the week. But Cummings and the other two committee chairmen leading the impeachment...

    Palestinian Authority (PA) cabinet leader Mohammad Shtayyeh is calling on members of the US Congress to sound their voices in order to save the two-state solution. In a meeting in Ramallah on Thursday with Congressman Eliot Engel, who heads the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Shtayyeh stressed the importance of congressional pressure on the Trump administration to lift the sanctions on the PA and put an end to what he called the “economic war” against the PA.

    President Trump’s administration is proposing a sharp cut in diplomatic funding for the third year in a row, even though Congress repudiated his last two State Department budgets and gave the branch billions more than he requested. “This is a back and forth with Congress,” Doug Pitkin, director of State's bureau of budget and planning, told reporters Monday. “Just because Congress has not taken up some of the reductions that were proposed over the last three years does not change the administration's position.” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo touted the $40 billion request for fiscal 2020, a steep decline from...

    Linda Sarsour, co-leader of the embattled Women’s March, attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as House Democrats draft a resolution condemning antisemitism following blowback from Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) latest anti-semitic remarks. Omar became the center of controversy after suggesting last week that lawmakers are pressured by pro-Israel groups to take a pledge of “allegiance to a foreign country.” “I want to ask, ‘Why is it OK for me to talk about the influence of the [National Rifle Association], or fossil fuel industries or Big Pharma, and not talk about a powerful lobbying group that is influencing policy?’” the Minnesota...
