    WESTERVILLE, Ohio—At an event in an ice cream shop downtown in this small suburb of Columbus, hours before Democrats’ presidential debate blocks away, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez held court with a dozen or so young, rising Ohio Democrats to declare that the national party was here for a reason. “We’re here in Ohio because Ohio’s a battleground,” Perez said, “and I’m confident we can win Ohio.” Perez wasn’t just trying to cheer up the troops. He was weighing in on a live, controversial question: Should Democrats give up on Ohio? For more than half a century, this question...

    On Sunday, Israel's Ministry of Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy made public a lengthy new document entitled, "Terrorists in Suits: The Ties Between NGOs Promoting BDS and Terrorist Organizations." Israel released the report to demonstrate "how terrorists came to hold key positions in NGOs promoting the Boycott Divestment and Sanction (BDS) campaign against the State of Israel; and how, through these NGOs, they exploit Western governmental funding, philanthropic foundations, financial platforms and civil society to advance their goal of dismantling the State of Israel." NGOs, or non-governmental organizations, are hotly contested in the Israeli public discourse. Anti-Israel NGOs are so...
  • Democrats reject climate debate push from activists (only 11.45 years left)

    SAN FRANCISCO — The Democratic National Committee on Saturday quashed a push from climate activists and some national party members who want a 2020 presidential primary debate devoted exclusively to the climate crisis. The national party committee voted 222-137 at its summer meeting in San Francisco against a resolution that effectively would have rolled back debate rules set by Chairman Tom Perez and freed presidential candidates to participate in a climate-only debate. The move drew rebukes from the Sunrise Movement and other activists who say the party leadership is ignoring young voters' priorities. "The Democratic Party needs the energy and...

    Former Congressman Jason Lewis announced Thursday morning he is running for the U.S. Senate in 2020. Lewis, a Republican who lost his 2018 re-election bid to represent the 2nd Congressional District, will try to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Tina Smith. In his announcement, though, he targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Democrat from Minneapolis who has been repeatedly criticized by President Donald Trump, just as much as Smith. “We are at a crossroads in Minnesota and across this country not seen since the chaos and turmoil of the 1960’s,” Lewis said in his announcement. “llhan Omar, with Senator Tina Smith marching...

    Washington, DC - Muslim political leaders and academics are set to gather in Washington, DC, on Tuesday for what is being billed as the first national gathering of Muslims in politics in United States history. The historic moment comes as President Donald Trump and his supporters ramp up attacks on Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the first two Muslim women in Congress. Organised by the Muslim Caucus, the Muslim Collective for Equitable Democracy 2019 will feature appearances by representatives Omar, as well as a host of other prominent Muslim American figures, including Gold Star father Khizr Khan and Keith Ellison,...

    Keith Ellison Embraces Anti-Semitic UK Leader Jeremy Corbyn by Ariel Behar • Jul 3, 2019 at 1:35 pm Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, a former Democratic National Committee deputy chairman, posted a photo of himself Tuesday night with U.K. Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn. Corbyn's Labour Party has been embroiled in an anti-Semitism controversy that has seen key leaders leave the party. Nearly 40 percent of British Jews said they would consider leaving the U.K. if he were to become prime minister. Ellison, a savvy politician, has to be aware of Labour's problems. That did not give him pause about...

    Democratic presidential contender Amy Klobuchar said she had 'no reason' not to believe Joe Biden's accuser while Sen. Bernie Sanders said the incident doesn't disqualify the former vice president from running in 2020. 'I have not read her interview, but I know the vice president addressed it there in that statement and he will continue to address it if he decides to get into this race,' Klobuchar said of Lucy Flores' accusation. 'I have no reason not to believe her,' she noted on ABC's 'This Week.' **SNIP** 'I'm not sure that one incident alone disqualifies anybody, but her point is...

    If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again—or just hide your idea in a giant piece of legislation, where you hope it won’t get noticed. The National Popular Vote campaign hopes that Minnesota voters won’t see its sneaky maneuver until it’s too late. Perhaps National Popular Vote supporters feel desperate. They’ve been trying to get their controversial interstate compact approved in Minnesota since 2009, but the legislation always flounders. This year, National Popular Vote is trying something new in Minnesota. Its compact has been introduced as standalone legislation, just as it normally is. Meanwhile, the compact also has been...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s blackface scandal has largely dropped from public view, and one Democratic presidential hopeful says it’s time to move on. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, said Sunday that “we have to move on” after being asked about Mr. Northam in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” **SNIP** “If we spend our whole time, Chuck, talking about what men did wrong, we are never going to talk about what women can do right, including running for president and winning,” she said.

    DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Back when he was still just teasing a presidential run, Beto O’Rourke told Vanity Fair he was “born to be in” the race. Now that he’s campaigning to far greater media attention and much larger crowds than many Democrats who’ve been competing longer, they are taking offense at the former Texas congressman’s sense of entitlement.Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar drew the sharpest such contrast on Sunday, saying “I wasn’t born to run. But I am running” while acknowledging, “Oh, that’s the Beto line.”“No, I wasn’t born to run for office, just because growing up in the ’70s,...

    A top staffer to Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign apologized Tuesday for invoking “a dual allegiance” of Jewish Americans while defending Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Belén Sisa, Sanders’ national deputy press secretary, was discussing the term seen as anti-Semitic in a Facebook thread over the weekend -- and argued that questioning it was legitimate, Politico reported. “This is a serious question: do you not think that the American government and American Jewish community has a dual allegiance to the state of Israel? I’m asking not to rule out the history of this issue, but in the context in which this was...

    I find it impossible to disagree with Ryan Saavedra’s Twitter observation: "The Democratic Party, which has called everything under the sun a “Nazi” for the last 3 years, all of a sudden can’t muster up the spine to condemn blatant anti-Semitism within their own party.” It’s been in the works for years under the cloak of intersectionality -- in truth little more than an effort to ingather voting blocs of illegal immigrants, Palestinian supporters, socialists, blacks locked in the ghettoes of their minds, sexual outliers – LGBT (and "whatever other gender” now included), and malcontent women delighted that even post-birth...

    House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) apparently coached former Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen on what would be discussed at last week’s congressional hearing. This, along with a meeting between Schiff and Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson prior to Simpson’s testimony and a long list of examples of the congressman claiming to have evidence against President Donald Trump that never materializes, lead one to wonder why Schiff hasn’t been the subject of an ethics investigation. . . . This wasn’t Schiff’s only questionable behavior. Two years ago he claimed to have “more than circumstantial evidence” proving collusion, yet no such...

    If you’re going to accept the tag of “rising Democratic superstar” you need to really ingratiate yourself with the far left base of the party, including the transgender community. That seems to be the case with newly minted congresswoman Ilhan Omar. So what transgender pet issue will she tackle? Mandatory use of opposite pronouns? Bathroom inequality? Nope. In typical fashion, she’s going for one of the most controversial aspects of the ongoing discussion.Omar wants to ensure that men (who “identify” as females) can compete against actual women in sports. And it’s not just any sport. She’s talking about weightlifting,...

    Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar recommended Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison investigate USA Powerlifting for barring biological males from women’s events, according to a Jan. 31 letter she sent USA Powerlifting. Omar called it a “myth” that men who identify as transgender women have a “direct competitive advantage” and copied Ellison on the letter, “with a recommendation that he investigate this discriminatory behavior.” (RELATED: Biological Male Wins World Championship In Women’s Cycling) Omar sent her letter on behalf of JayCee Cooper, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, and whom Omar identified as one of her constituents.
