    Five members of the Congressional Black Caucus took a $60,000 trip to see Beyoncé and other stars perform in concert in South Africa late last year, according to congressional disclosure records. The lawmakers were U.S. Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York, Barbara Lee of California, Bobby Rush of Illinois, Terri Sewell of Alabama and Hank Johnson of Georgia, according to the data. They attended the “Global Citizen Mandela 100” concert from Dec. 1-3 to celebrate the centenary birth of the late Nelson Mandela and raise awareness of global poverty.

    Full Title: Dem rep says Trump supporters are dying early from alcoholism, drugs and broken hearts in off-the-rails diatribe A congressional Democrat from Georgia, with a reputation of not being the brightest, believes the average supporter of President Donald Trump is a broke, uneducated rube addicted to alcohol, drugs and racism. “Donald Trump supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early,” Rep. Hank Johnson confidently asserted during a speech Tuesday at the Friendship Baptist Church in Atlanta. “Their lifespans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart...

    Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) said President Donald Trump’s rise to power is similar to how Adolf Hitler became the infamous German dictator, at an event hosted by the Atlanta NAACP. He also went after Trump voters for being “old”, “less educated”, and dying early from alcoholism. “Americans elected an authoritarian, an anti-immigrant, racist strongman to the nation’s highest office,” Johnson said in his speech. “Donald Trump and his ‘Make America Great Again’ followers who want to return American back to a time where white men and white privilege were unchallenged, and where minorities and women were in their place.”

    A Georgia Democratic congressman repeatedly compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler during a fiery speech at a Baptist church in Atlanta this week. The Atlanta NAACP posted video online of Rep. Hank Johnson's speech in which he compared the president to the Nazi leader responsible for the killing of 6 million Jews during World War II. “Much like how Hitler took over the Nazi party, Trump has taken over the Republican Party,” Johnson said Tuesday. At another point, Johnson said, “Hitler was accepting of violence towards the achievement of political objectives. Trump encouraged violence against protesters at his rallies.” The...
  • Lawmaker’s Slur That Jews are ‘Termites’ Reminds Jewish Voter of Hitler’s ‘Vermin’ (Den Congressman)

    A Democratic Congressman calls Israeli Jews living in Judea and Samaria "termites;" a Jewish voter remembers Hitler calling Jews "vermin." A vicious anti-Semitic slur flung by a Democratic member of Congress on Monday against Israeli Jews living in Judea and Samaria hit one Jewish voter square in the face with the ice-cold memory of another time, when similar words were spoken. With just one word, U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson of Georgia proved to anyone who bothered to pay attention that the Democratic Party is no longer the traditional safe haven of the American Jew.

    Outside of the partisan bubbles, legal observers concede that Democrats dropping the sexual misconduct allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh at the 11thhour should make Republicans furious. At the same time, they think the GOP should have given ample time to investigate these claims, not establishing an artificial deadline. George Washington Law Professor Jonathan Turley has an op-ed in The Hill, where he lays out his concerns about the probe, noting that we need an end to this drama, not a prolongation of it. Also, he notes the dangerous precedent that Democrats are setting by warning in not so uncertain terms that...

    Social media took center stage on Capitol Hill again Thursday, April 26, 2018. The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing examining the “Filtering Practices of Social Media Platforms.” While certain Republican members of Congress and the pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk argued social media platforms are politically biased against conservatives, other witnesses and Democrats claimed the hearing was “ridiculous” and a distraction. […] Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) spoke next (after Bob Goodlatte), questioning Congress’ priorities in addressing how social media sites run, rather than discussing potential Russian interference in the election through social media. “In short, House Republicans have no...

    Pro-Trump conservative media personalities Diamond and Silk, sisters whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, testified before the House Judiciary Committee Thursday on the topic of bias against conservatives by companies like Facebook, in a hearing that frequently went off the rails. The sisters defended their claims that they were censored by the tech giant, often in very strong terms. They said that if Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was censoring liberals, “Democrats would be in the streets right now marching and calling him all types of racist.” Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) implied the sisters were making a lot...

    RUSH: Grab sound bite number 22. I checked the email, and people didn’t believe my Hank Johnson story. I can understand if you’re a Millennial and you weren’t here back in 2010, it’s seven years ago when Hank said this. If you didn’t hear it, I can understand that you might not think I’m lying, but that nobody would say that, what Hank did. Well, he did, and it was during a House Armed Services Committee hearing. It was during testimony about the 2011 defense budget request, and this is Hank Johnson, Democrat, Georgia, and Admiral Robert Willard of the...

    Two months before U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson found himself in hot water for comparing Jewish settlers in the disputed West Bank to “termites,” the Lithonia Democrat and his wife embarked on a six-day trip to the territory funded by a pro-Palestinian group. MIFTA, an organization that advocates for an independent and democratic Palestinian state, and the nonprofit American Global Institute picked up the more than $13,000 tab for the five-term congressman and his wife, DeKalb County Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson, to travel to Ramallah and Jerusalem in late May along with a handful of other House Democrats. As we wrote...

    House Rep. Hank Johnson (D – GA), already famous for once worrying that too many soldiers on Guam could “capsize” the island and lead to thousands of deaths, is back in the news with another idiotic proclamation. This time, Johnson is under fire for his comments on Jewish settlers in Israel. “There has been a steady, almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you’ve been eaten up and you fall in on yourself, there has been settlement activity that has marched forward with impunity and at an ever increasing rate to the...

    A Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee compared Jewish Israeli settlers to termites on Monday while speaking at an event sponsored by an anti-Israel organization that supports boycotts of the Jewish state. Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) launched into a tirade against Israel and its policies toward the Palestinians, comparing Jewish people who live in disputed territories to “termites” that destroy homes. Johnson also compared Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a remark that drew vocal agreement from those in the room. “There has been a steady [stream], almost like termites can get...

    Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), a man previously made famous for his belief that Guam could capsize and tip over, and claims that retired neurosurgeon and conservative candidate for President, Dr. Ben Carson, is an African-American trying to gain support from the ignorant. Johnson, appearing on The Michael Smerconish Show discussing race relations under Obama, said that Obama has done “as much as is humanly possible.” He added that Obama is probably the greatest President our nation has ever seen. The problem, Johnson contends, are ignorant black men like Ben Carson and his supporters who act “like a lynch mob” towards...
