    All four members of “The Squad” come from deep blue districts that normally are safe seats for Democrats. But Rep. Ilhan Omar, who represents the city of Minneapolis and a few inner ring suburbs, is now caught in a scandal that threatens to alienate her biggest voting bloc base, fellow Muslim Somalis, who emigrated to Minnesota by the tens of thousands at the behest of the  State Department that thought the generous welfare benefits of the North Star State could well be spent on people from a tropical climate transplanted to the coldest metropolis in the country.

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) has received a lot of criticism for the surpassing crudity of her declaration about the President Were going to impeach the motherf***er and in the last few days for offering the phrase for sale on a t-shirt but less attention has been given to the company she keeps. As far back as her swearing-in, and at a private dinner she held that same day, many unsavory Palestinian activists were in attendance. It should be remembered that at her victory party, Tlaib wrapped herself not in the American, but in the Palestinian flag, and...

    White House senior adviser Jared Kushner will lead a US delegation to Israel at the end of the month to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz, a senior administration official said on Thursday. Kushner has been leading President Donald Trump's effort to develop a peace plan for Israelis and Palestinians. After proposing a $60 billion aid package for the region last summer, he has yet to unveil a proposed political plan that gets at the thorniest issues in the decades-old conflict, with Netanyahu struggling to form a governing coalition. The official, speaking on condition...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warrens refusal to answer repeated questions at Tuesday nights debate about how she would fund Medicare for All underscores the challenge she faces finding a politically acceptable means to meet the ideas huge price tag a challenge that only intensified today with the release of an eye-popping new study. The Urban Institute, a center-left think tank highly respected among Democrats, is projecting that a plan similar to what Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders are pushing would require $34 trillion in additional federal spending over its first decade in operation. Thats more than the federal governments total cost...
  • Cities are banning drive-thrus to improve Americans' health but will it work?

    msn ^ | 10/16/2019 | Erica Chayes Wida
    A growing number of local legislatures in cities across the country want to put an end to drive-thru windows. In August, Minneapolis became the latest city to pass an ordinance banning the construction of new restaurant drive-thrus. Officials say the ban will help curb pollution, make the city more walkable and improve health problems pertaining to obesity. Other places that have enacted similar measures say they are aiming to combat traffic, cut carbon monoxide emissions and litter. Thus far, cities in California, Missouri and New Jersey have implemented similar bans. Still, many consumers are worried about one of their favorite...

    Presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar had her own 'please clap' moment during a CNN town hall event on Monday night as she the gathered audience that they were 'supposed to cheer'. The awkward moment came when the Democratic senator from Minnesota was asked how she could win back supporters of President Trump. 'Every single time I have won, I have won every single congressional district in my state including Michele Bachmann's, OK? That's when you guys are supposed to cheer, OK?' Klobuchar told the crowd in the cringe-worthy moment.

    Via the Free Beacon, lots of oohing and ahhing among the chatterati over this answer from last night’s CNN event. It’s “on brand,” if nothing else. Klobuchar’s betting that (a) the leftist vote will split half a dozen ways, (b) Biden either will choose not to run or get sunk by leftist grievances against him when he gets in, leaving the center to her, and (c) her regional appeal will help her to a surprisingly strong finish in Iowa, elevating her into the top tier. This question and answer were a perfect opportunity for her to establish her centrist...

    Democratic congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, three of the most influential voices among young progressive liberals, will all reportedly endorse Senator Bernie Sanders in his 2020 bid for presidency. In an article published on Tuesday evening, The Washington Post reported that two unnamed sources with knowledge of the plan said Ocasio-Cortez, 30, will join Sanders, 78, at a campaign rally on Saturday to announce the surprise endorsement. During the fourth Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, Sanders revealed that a "special guest" would join him in New York. "We're looking forward to Saturday," Corbin Trent, a spokesperson for...

    Jacob Frey, the Democratic mayor of Minneapolis, may want to rethink his recent reaction to the backlash he saw after a dust-up with President Donald Trump. Taking to social media, the “lightweight mayor” essentially said Trump supporters made him feel like a woman. “Weird week. My DMs are trash, which gave me a small glimpse into what I assume it must be like for…any woman on the Internet?” Frey tweeted on Friday, Weird week.

    If this decision stands, every farmer in Minnesota who wants to add more cows (or other animals, presumably) to his farm will have to pay lawyers to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement that calculates the effect of the additional farm animals on the Earths average temperature. I can save them some money: the impact is zero, to however many decimal points you want to work it out to. Is this a big deal? It certainly is. Daley Farms has been trying since July 2017 to expand its operation. God only knows how much money it has spent already. With the...

    (CNN) Tuesday night's CNN/The New York Times debate stage will feature a record 12 candidates. It could be the last debate appearance for up to 33% of them. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julin Castro, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke are all in deep danger of not making November's debate. That means Tuesday may be the last chance fo those four to give their campaigns a realistic chance to have a measure of success. Fundraising and polling qualification thresholds have been bumped up once again for November's debate. Jumping...

    Mike Bloomberg has indicated to associates in recent weeks that Joe Bidens recent struggles are making him rethink his decision to stay out of the 2020 Democratic primary, according to people familiar with the discussions. Bloomberg is in if Biden is out, says one source. Biden has not indicated any desire to drop out any time soon. Bloomberg could be in for a showdown with Elizabeth Warren, whether he runs or not, as he has been one of her biggest critics on the Democratic side. I think its something he wants. He has not been shy about that, one of...

    Can former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., actually defeat President Trump in the 2020 presidential election? Democrats watching Trumps Minneapolis rally Thursday night have to wonder. President Trump wowed the crowd in blue-state Minnesota. And what a crowd it was; tens of thousands inside the arena chanting and cheering, while hundreds more stood outside hoping to get in. The energy in the room was extraordinary, especially considering that the president, buoyed by his fans, spoke for an exhausting hour and 45 minutes. Forget the polls, forget the partisan impeachment inquiry; the enthusiasm of those Minnesota supporters...
  • ILHAN OMAR WAS ARRESTED IN 2013, HERES HER MUGSHOT

    07/20/2019 8:59:55 PM PDT · by Kevin in California · 68 replies
    Seems Ilhan Omar isnt just a flaming communist and anti-Semite. Omar is also a criminal. Other than marrying her brother in Minnesota, which is against state law, Ilhan Omar was arrested in January of 2013 for trespassing too! She even has a mugshot, without her hijab. I guess Minnesota doesnt only like flaming anti-Semites, but they like criminals too.

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Michigans far left of left Democratic congresswoman, called for a complete transformation of Americas government a political revolution and economic overhaul to change the capitalistic system and, as she framed it, to put the people, not the corporations, back in power. This is not simply a difference of political differences; a Democrat view versus a Republican view. This is treasonous. Its treason wrapped in a social justice ribbon. Tlaib is a member of the U.S. Congress, bound by oath of office to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Yet this is...

    Far-left Squad member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) told constituents on Tuesday that her Democrat colleagues are looking into how to arrest White House officials who refuse to comply with subpoenas as part of an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. Speaking to her constituents at a town hall in her hometown of Detriot, Tlaib said Democrats are puzzled about how to arrest Cabinet secretaries, telling voters in a video captured by America Rising PAC that they could be taken into custody if Congress votes to hold them in contempt.

    Free Beacon ^ | 10/02/19
    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) has promoted at least four racially charged hoaxes or debunked stories on Twitter in 2019 and failed to issue statements retracting or correcting her comments. The most recent example: the case of Amari Allen, a black 12-year-old girl in Virginia who claimed three white boys in her class pinned her down and cut off her dreadlocks. Allen has since recanted the story, but Tlaib has not issued a correction or deleted her tweet praising Allen as "courageous & strong" and having a "power that threatens their core."
