    The New York Times called them "sidewalk ministers" who practice "tough love." The paper quoted Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center who described them as victims of racism and claimed that they were non-violent. The Washington Post, in its own puff piece on the Black Hebrew Israelites, also falsely described them as non-violent, and concluded that, "Israelite street preaching in parts of D.C., Philadelphia and New York is commonplace, a familiar if odd accent to city life." The odd accent to city life in Jersey City came amid a hail of bullets as two members of the racist...

    There are clearly some Democrats who are beginning to worry that this entire impeachment thing could backfire and potentially lead to Trump winning a second term. And they may be justified in those fears. Some of their members are already saying they will vote against impeachment and would prefer to go with a censure. Multiple polls now show the public swinging back the other way and opposing impeachment and removal. And for reasons that are difficult to parse, Trump is suddenly surging in Iowa and several swing states.So if we game this out to the finish line, what do...

    Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif., said Tuesday she's willing to impeach President Trump again if he wins reelection in 2020. TMZ founder Harvey Levin presented Bass with a scenario in which Trump wins a second term but Democrats take over the Senate from the Republicans. "There's no such thing, really, as double jeopardy in an impeachment trial because it's political," Levin said. "Suppose he gets reelected... and you win back the Senate in a big way. If you did that, would you be inclined to take a second bite at the apple and reintroduce the exact same impeachment articles and then...

    President Trump appears to take his orders from Russian President Vladimir Putin, rather than working on behalf of the American people, Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif., claimed Thursday. "In the United States, it's kind of hard for us to imagine the situation that this president is in," she said on CNN's "New Day." "And all of that compromises our national security. But we do know over the last three years, we know who this president answers to. And it’s not the American people. It’s Putin."

    The Syracuse Post-Standard ^ | August 1, 2019 | Mark Weiner
    WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, inspired by the plan to tear down the elevated portion of Interstate 81 in Syracuse, wants to rewrite federal rules for hiring workers on such big infrastructure projects. If she succeeds, at least half of the workers hired for the $2 billion project for a new I-81 would have to come from Syracuse. Hiring priority would be given to people who face barriers to employment, including veterans, ex-offenders and the chronically unemployed. At least a third of contracts and subcontracts would go to small businesses, and at least 30 percent of the contracts would...

    Seeking to wring every possible ounce of political advantage from President Trump's recent tweets about The Squad, Nicolle Wallace has suggested that Trump would have "blood on his hands" if one of them were to be attacked. On her MSNBC show Tuesday afternoon, Wallace interviewed Rep. Karen Bass, Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, and began by asking whether Trump's words posed a "danger." When Bass said she did and that she was "seriously worried about the lives" of the Squad members, Wallace then took things an ugly step further, saying: "I just want to get you on the record...

    "I want to thank Minister Farrakhan for offering up a number of precepts that we ought to adhere to,” Rep. James Clyburn said, at an event featuring the anti-Semitic hate group leader. Eight years later, to the month, Clyburn, now the House Majority Whip, defended Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitism. “There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her," he argued, dismissing the concerns of Jewish legislators. Rep. Clyburn is one of the most powerful figures in the House. He’s also one of Farrakhan’s allies in the House who had...

    With the fallout over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s controversial comments paralyzing House Democrats, Speaker Nancy Pelosi found herself on the floor Wednesday afternoon asking some of her closest allies what exactly she should do. For 20 minutes, Pelosi huddled with senior members of the Congressional Black Caucus — House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn of South Carolina and Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, and Karen Bass and Barbara Lee of California — to try to determine what kind of resolution the CBC would back that rejected Omar’s remarks about Israel without unfairly singling her out.

Maybe the FBI wasn’t a good fit for Josh? The New York Times thinks we should all stop picking on the FBI and let them continue their coup. The liberal media is especially upset with President Trump for questioning the agency and the DOJ over their special counsel witch hunt.Try to read this and not laugh out loud.Axios reported: Josh Campbell, a special agent at the FBI, resigned...

    Appearing on this evening’s Hardball, Rep. Karen Bass, a Democrat and leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, twice accused Republican Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue of “flat-out lying” by saying that they didn’t hear President Trump refer to various countries as “s—holes.” Bass then took things an ugly step further, insinuating that President Trump might have bribed the two senators in some way. Said Bass: “I think that they’re flat-out lying. And maybe they’re getting something from the President for it.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Tensions ran high over the weekend when anti-”amnesty” activists showed up to a Spanish-language town hall event featuring Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) and proceeded to shout him down. The event at the University of Southern California was billed as “Keeping Families Together: An Immigration Town Hall” featuring Gutiérrez and fellow Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), and was delivered in Spanish with the option for attendees to wear headphones for English translations. The event focused on President Barack Obama‘s recent executive action on immigration, and featured materials assisting undocumented immigrants with signing up deportation deferrals under the new policy.

    A California Democrat said a lesson in the wake of the Michael Brown shooting is a need to look at police acting as “jury and executioner” when confronting suspects. Rep. Karen Bass, a House Judiciary Committee member, said in a statement after the grand jury opted to not issue an indictment this week that it “continues a trend of injustice that has rightfully created an environment of anger and concern in Ferguson, Missouri and across the United States.” “Ferguson officials botched this case from the beginning when they left Michael Brown’s body on the street for over four hours after...

    Three House Democrats are calling on President Obama to allow U.S. troops in West Africa to provide direct care to Ebola patients. The Obama administration has already committed around 4,000 U.S. troops to help fight Ebola in the affected West African countries, but they are performing tasks such as building treatment centers and training local providers, not directly providing care. Reps. Keith Ellison (Minn.), Karen Bass (Calif.), and Barbara Lee (Calif.) want to change that. "We write to urge you to consider building on the current response to the Ebola epidemic by allowing military medical and technical personnel to provide...

    ( - Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC's "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum's comments comparing Nelson Mandela's fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is...

    Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said Sunday that the Justice Department had a tough choice in deciding whether to bring federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman. A former prosecutor, Klobuchar said that the department would need to wait until their investigation collected all the evidence they could. “I know that investigation’s going on. As a former prosecutor, I know you wait until you see all the evidence,” Klobuchar said on ABC’s “This Week.” “They’re going to have to make that decision. It’ll be a tough one.” (snip) On “This Week,” Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) called the verdict “devastating.” “I just...

    Members of California's congressional delegation called on Gov. Jerry Brown Friday to join three other states in suspending participation in a controversial federal immigration enforcement program. The seven Democratic representatives acted after the Los Angeles City Council voted overwhelmingly this week to support legislation allowing local communities to opt out of the Secure Communities program and Sheriff Lee Baca, a strong proponent, qualified his support in a letter to immigrant activists.In recent weeks, governors in Illinois, New York and Massachusetts have sought to suspend or have declined to enter into Secure Communities participation agreements. When it was launched in 2008,...

    Former Assembly Speaker Karen Bass quietly promoted 20 members of her Democratic caucus staff and gave them 10 percent salary increases that took effect her final days as Assembly leader. Along with higher pay, staff members received different job titles, reflecting perhaps a change in duties, Assembly records show. The pay hikes come at a thorny time, however, with the state facing massive debt and most state employees seeing their pay cut through furloughs.
