    The Muslim college student who lied to cops about getting attacked on the subway by drunken Trump supporters took a plea deal on Friday. Yasmin Seweid, 19, copped to falsely reporting an incident and disorderly conduct for the bogus claim. Seweid, of New Hyde Park, L.I., said hate-filled white men harassed her and tried to snatch the hijab off her head during an encounter on the No. 6 train on Dec. 1. Seweid previously admitted she wasted police resources to cover up for her missed curfew. She must go through six months of counseling and complete three days of community...

    Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D) took to Twitter on Wednesday to call out a bar crawl event in Detroit with a theme some have condemned for embracing “racist imagery." “This is some racist bullshit (yep I cursed again...get over it!) right here,” Tlaib tweeted in reference to the event. “Who is sponsoring it?” “@onemichigan can help organize some of us to call it out. Our kids and families can't be exposed to these types of disgusting events,” the congresswoman continued, calling on One Michigan, which is a local organization that works to provide resources to immigrant communities, for help in...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) predicted on Friday that a "handful" of Republicans will back a resolution to block President Trump's emergency declaration to construct the U.S.-Mexico border wall. "A handful. …[But] there will be enough to sustain a veto," Graham told Fox News , asked how many Republicans would vote with Democrats in the Senate. Graham didn't offer a specific number for how many of his Republican colleagues he thinks will back the resolution. He said that he would "absolutely not" vote for the Democrat-led resolution, adding that he is "100 percent with the president." Graham, who has emerged as...
  • TRUMP AND BLACKS: Heard it on Rush Just Now

    02/22/2019 11:04:03 AM PST · by DIRTYSECRET · 33 replies
    Kamala Harris and Pocahantas are calling for reparations. A caller claims it's just to keep them in line because they're worried Trump could be making inroads into the black vote. My solution: One Presidential debate dealing with just the issue of racism. Leave out 'other' races. A panel of 4 moderators, all black. Perhaps one 'hispanic'(Juan Williams). Trump demands it and the public will be with him to the point where the MSM will be unable to define the narrative beforehand or change the format.

    Jew hater “Jihad” Jenny Tonge has posted the following on Facebook: It links to this article on Middle East Monitor. Let’s first start with the image. It shows Jewish Holocaust victims, not palestinians. What makes the inclusion of this fake image here even more duplicitous is the fact it is not the image Facebook automatically includes when you post this story: In other words, it looks like Tonge deliberately replaced the automatically chosen image with this fake one. But now to the story itself. Israeli Jewish journalist Asaf Shalev, who lives in California, has said that Israel had been hiding...

    From the very first day of the 2020 presidential race, when Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts blamed “generations of discrimination” for black families earning far less than white households, Democratic hopefuls have broadly emphasized racial justice and closing the wealth gap in their policy platforms. But in recent weeks, some candidates have started embracing specific goals and overtly race-conscious legislation that even the most left-wing elected officials stayed away from in recent years. Last week, Senator Kamala Harris of California agreed with a radio host’s recent suggestion that government reparations for black Americans were necessary to address the legacies of...

    Ilhan Omar traveled with anti-US group that supports Cuban, Venezuelan socialism, wants US to return Gitmo to Cuba ep. Ilhan Omar has attended a travel delegation to a South American country sponsored by a radical anti-American and anti-Israel organization that supports countries opposed to the U.S. and calls for the return of Guantanamo Naval Base to Cuba. The Minnesota Democrat was accused of anti-Semitism after asserting that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a bipartisan group, was buying lawmakers. She also grabbed headlines after first accusing the U.S. government of leading a coup against Venezuelan socialist tyrant Nicolas Maduro and...

    Freshman Congressmen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have wasted no time in shaking up the US House of Representatives. Early Friday morning, Omar and Tlaib introduced a bill adding Islamic holidays to the Federal calendar which has traditionally only recognized American holidays. Omar and Tlaib’s bill would add Eid Al-Fitr at the end of Ramadan and the four-day-long celebration of Eid Al-Adha to the list of Federally recognized holidays, potentially granting reasons to banks, schools, and other businesses to remain closed for five additional days per year. Omar and Tlaib justified their work as making America more inclusive of it’s...

    Former U.S. Senate candidate John James is seen as one of President Trump's top candidates to become ambassador to the United Nations, a source familiar with discussions about the matter told Fox News on Tuesday. The source said James is the leading candidate and has expressed interest in the position to the White House. The belief among Trump's inner circle is that James is a rising political superstar, and the U.N. post could provide him with a pathway into elected office. White House officials also confirmed to Fox News that James is under consideration.

    Photo of Democratic senator groping news anchor Leeann Tweeden goes viral Progressives aligned with the Bernie Sanders camp called for replacing disgraced Sen. Al Franken with a fellow Minnesota Democrat, Rep. Keith Ellison, as support grew Friday for the senator’s resignation. Justice Democrats, a group of former Sanders campaign staffers and others prominent leftists, launched a petition Thursday asking Mr. Franken to resign following the release of a photo showing him groping Leeann Tweeden as she slept on a 2006 USO tour. “Franken must go. We do not tolerate those who abuse their power,” said Justice Democrats PAC executive director...

    We’ve had some conflicting headlines this week when it comes to the 2020 Democratic nomination race. One of the more excitable notes from The Hill indicates that Kamala Harris has seen a “notable rise” in the polls since announcing her candidacy. That may be true, but the notable rise in question still only puts her at around 13%. In the meantime, two men who haven’t even decided if they want to run are still lapping the rest of the field. Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are the most popular potential Democratic presidential candidates, but...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) privately reached out to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) despite the congresswoman’s getting hit from both sides of the political aisle for a series of anti-Semitic messages. Sanders, who is Jewish, reportedly spoke with Omar as she battles through a controversy that has included references to Israel as “evil,” comparisons of Israel to Iran, repeated anti-Semitic tropes, and support of the anti-Semitic BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement. It has even progressed to badgering a Jewish diplomat.

    shortened title. Full title: Bernie Sanders on Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic tweets: “We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters” Questions for Bernie: 1. Yes, but will they stand by you, when the chips are down? Remember the Communist Tudeh Party in Iran, which supported Khomeini and the Islamic Revolution, only to be banned and persecuted by the Khomeini regime. 2. If a first-term Jewish Congresswoman had posted a series of tweets criticizing jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others, how many seconds would it have taken you to withdraw your support from her...

    Notorious Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan defended Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for implying on Twitter last week that the pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC compensated lawmakers in exchange for supporting the Jewish state. In remarks at the NOI's annual Saviours' Day celebration Sunday at Chicago's United Center, Farrakhan condemned lawmakers who pressed Omar to apologize in the wake of her remarks. ..." Omar tweeted on Feb. 10 that congressional support of Israel was "all about the Benjamins, baby," a reference to a 1997 rap song by Puff Daddy. When Batya Ungar-Sargon, the opinion editor of The Forward newspaper, asked Omar who...

    Well, this makes perfect sense in a very awkward way. You could say that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is a poster girl for the American Dream. An immigrant from the failed country of Somalia, Omar (who is Muslim) has managed a feat the vast majority of native-born Americans will never achieve: She’s become a member of Congress. But in doing so, Omar’s very questionable, anti-Semitic past has caught up with her. She’s been called out now several times by Jewish-Americans and representatives of Israel for making comments in the past very disparaging of the Jewish faith. The latest gaffe (or...

    In Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district, “Taliban” and other gangs run wild, Somali Muslims don’t talk to police They don’t talk to the police because they don’t trust them, because the police are not Muslims. The Qur’an teaches that Muslims are “the best of people” (3:110) and non-Muslims are “the most vile of created beings” (98:6). But no one will admit that is the cause, and so the police keep trying “outreach” programs to win them over. The result? Disasters such as the police career of Mohamed Noor. “Back in Omar’s district, police deal with gangs, relations with tight-lipped Somali...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) and U.S. special envoy to Venezuela Elliott Abrams got into a fiery exchange on Wednesday that began with her wondering why anything he said could be considered credible after his role in the Iran-Contra scandal. One reason people can get away with taking cheap shots at Elliott Abrams is because there arenÂ’t a dozen people in DC, and zero reporters, who know a thing about US policy in Latin America in the 1980's. LetÂ’s decipher what Ms. Omar said: She went on to recount his 1982 congressional testimony about U.S. policy toward El Salvador, where...

    Rep. Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.) on Friday suggested a future Democratic president could confiscate citizens' guns based on the precedent of President Donald Trump's national emergency announcement regarding the border wall. Nadler, the new chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, appeared on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" to discuss Trump's announcement earlier in the morning. Trump declared it "necessary" to build the wall on the southern border. Host Chris Cuomo asked Nadler if enough Republicans would come out against Trump, prompting him to say, "I think so" and that he believes Republicans are terrified of unintended consequences. He speculated about other...

    When former astronaut Mark Kelly said last week he would run as a Democrat to try to unseat a sitting Republican U.S. senator in Arizona, the news sent liberal activists scrambling to try to come up with a candidate of their own. Left-wing groups urged Rep. Ruben Gallego, a vocal member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, to join the race to give liberals a more palatable option as they prepare for 2020. Across the country, those same liberal groups are eyeing next year’s elections with anticipation, hoping to prove that stunning primary season upsets in 2018, such as freshman Rep....
