  • NEW MUSLIM CONGRESS MEMBERS 'DECEIVED' VOTERS

    It’s an old joke: How can you tell a politician is lying? His lips are moving. It seems that may be the case for the first two Muslim women elected to the U.S. Congress. An analyst at the Gatestone Institute presented evidence that Ilhan Abdullahi Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Harbi Tlaib of Michigan lied to voters. The charge comes from Soeren Kern, a senior fellow at the institute, who who wrote that most of the media coverage since their election Nov. 6 “has been effusive in praise of their Muslim identity and personal history.” “Less known is that both...
  • Ilhan Omar's Election Shows That Democrats Aren't Interested in Confronting Anti-Semitism

    Ilhan Omar, one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress, is a new kind of politician. She's telegenic, ideologically progressive, widely celebrated by a media that's obsessed with identity politics. She's the kind of politician who can openly side with Hamas against Israel or spread "Protocols of the Elders of Zion"-style conspiracies on Twitter, claiming that Jews possess the supernatural ability to hypnotize the world as they unfurl their "evil." It's not surprising, then, that Omar also supports the "boycott, divestment and sanctions" movement. In a statement to the website Muslim Girl, someone on Omar's staff...

    Members of Missouri's legislative black caucus on Thursday elected state Rep. Steven Roberts, D-St. Louis, to chair the group — but Roberts' ascension drew criticism from one of his colleagues who two years ago accused Roberts of raping her. Rep. Cora Faith Walker, D-Ferguson, announced Thursday on Facebook that she was leaving the caucus. "I have resigned from the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus," Walker wrote. "I stand in my truth and am incredibly grateful to my colleagues who stand with survivors."

    In the midst of their midterm results coverage on Wednesday, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News touted the diversity of the Democratic Party’s field of winners. But in the process, they celebrated the election of Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. The problem? She’s been accused of anti-Semitism because of her anti-Israel stance. In a November 2012 tweet, Omar lashed out at the Jewish state of Israel by playing on anti-Jewish tropes. “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel” she wrote. And in a...

    The head of the Democratic National Committee said Thursday that President Trump’s “firing” of Attorney General Jeff Sessions doesn’t pass the “smell test” and said that it conjures up memories of former President Richard Nixon’s “Saturday massacre.” But DNC Chairman Tom Perez shied away from saying he would support the liberal calls for impeachment of Mr. Trump if acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker ends special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. “What happened yesterday doesn’t pass the smell test,” Mr. Perez said at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.

    Tlaib, of course, had nothing to say about the genocidal incitement against Jews and Israel that regularly features on Palestinian television. She did say, however, that she favors a one-state, not two-state, “solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: “One state. It has to be one state. Separate but equal does not work. Indeed it doesn’t. A Palestinian state would be a new base for renewed jihad attacks against Israel. But a “one-state solution” would be even worse, unless that state is the current State of Israel, but that is not the one state Tlaib has in mind. The hijabed (and therefore...
  • Election Results: Hagedorn (R) Defeats Feehan (D) in 1st District Race

    11/07/2018 10:40:02 AM PST · by MplsSteve · 9 replies
    Republican Jim Hagedorn has won southern Minnesota's 1st District race, flipping a Democratic seat that the GOP had targeted in hopes of hanging on to a House majority. Hagedorn defeated Iraq War veteran Dan Feehan, a Democrat who was an acting assistant secretary of defense in the Obama administration. It was Hagedorn's fourth try for Congress. Democratic U.S. Rep. Tim Walz vacated the seat to run for governor, setting up an intense contest that drew nearly $15 million in outside spending. Hagedorn came close to beating Walz in 2016, when President Donald Trump carried the district. He really never stopped...
  • [March 2018] Jewish GOP group calls for resignation of 7 Democrats over 'ties' to Farrakhan

    The Republican Jewish Coalition is calling for the resignation of seven Democratic members of Congress whom it claims are "connected" to controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The group describes him as a "known anti-Semite." The lobbying group on Tuesday called for the following lawmakers to step down: Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Barbara Lee, D-Calif.; Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; Danny Davis, D-Ill.; Andre Carson, D-Ind.; Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y.; and Al Green, D-Texas.

    If the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) stuck to its stated mission statement and only did civil rights work protecting Muslim Americans from discrimination and bigotry, you likely would never see it mentioned on this site.But CAIR has a second, perhaps more paramount objective that it never directly acknowledges: To oppose Israel and promote Palestinian nationalism.CAIR’s mission statement makes no mention of Palestine. Instead, it says it aims to “enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.” It describes its lobbying arm as focusing “on issues related to Islam and Muslims. The department monitors legislation and government activities and responds...

    The Democrats might capture the House this year, but every GOP pickup makes that prospect less likely. Here in Minnesota, we have two very strong pickup opportunities, open seats in the 1st and 8th Congressional districts, both of which went strongly for President Trump in 2016. I am pretty confident that the Republican candidates, Jim Hagedorn and Pete Stauber, will win those races. Until now, hardly anyone has taken seriously the chance that Republican David Hughes can upset longtime Congressman Collin Peterson in Minnesota’s 7th. But, in a stunning move, Real Clear Politics now rates the contest a tossup. Peterson...

    Pete Davidson is in hot water for some comments he made on “Saturday Night Live” about Dan Crenshaw, a Texas Republican running for Congress who lost an eye while serving in the U.S. military. On Saturday’s episode of the sketch series, Davidson appeared on the “Weekend Update” segment, the 24-year-old comedian gave his “first impressions” of some candidates ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections. He giggled as an image of former Navy SEAL Crenshaw, who wears an eye-patch on his right eye after being injured by an I.E.D. in Afghanistan, flashed across the screen. “You may be surprised to hear he’s...

    Crenshaw responded to Davidson's comments on Twitter Sunday morning. "Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes," he wrote. Davidson's segment, which he introduced as a look at "gross" candidates during this election, focused primarily on Republicans.

    Further proving the late-night comedy show is garbage entertainment for garbage people, Saturday Night Live "comedian" Pete Davidson sparked controversy after he made an ugly joke targeting GOP congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw. The punchline? Crenshaw wears an eye-patch due to losing his right eye during an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan. That's funny stuff, apparently, to the liberals writing the jokes for SNL. Davidson was participating in a segment called  "The Weekly Rundown" where SNL participants give what is supposed humorous commentary on current events. Davidson remarked he noticed there was an unusual rash of "gross"...

    Since the Vietnam War, liberals have been known for their great disdain for America’s service members, despite their efforts to hide it. During NBC’s latest edition of Saturday Night Live, that disdain poked its ugly head out in the form of supposed comedian Pete Davidson mocking Republican congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw about the eye he lost to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, “or whatever” according to the funny man. The vile attack came during the SNL’s faux news segment “Weekend Update” where Davidson was mocking multiple Republican politicians for their looks. The comedian stated...

Perez made the comments when asked during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" program why Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was still serving as his deputy at the DNC, despite being accused of domestic violence by his former girlfriend.
  • So far 410238 people have voted early in Minnesota. Here's what to watch.

    Six weeks into early voting, the number of ballots cast in Minnesota has nearly matched the early general election turnout in 2016, according to the Minnesota Secretary of State's data — an initial sign of potentially strong midterm turnout in November. In 2016, nearly 700,000 absentee ballots were received prior to Election Day. So far this year, about 410,000 votes have already been cast, which roughly matches 2016 at this time and is significantly more than the number who voted early in the 2014 midterms, when early voting was first allowed. The Star Tribune will be tracking the early vote...

    I'm watching a couple of potential false flag racism stories here in MN. One at a College, one at a High School. I'm going to keep them in my pocket until the charges are proven one way or another. I suspect them to be self inflicted hate speech. Keep your eyes and ears open to similar reports as we near the mid-terms.
