    Maintaining its proud commitment to printing all the news that will divide Americans by race, sex, and creed, the New York Times published a list of what it claimed were the “922 of the most powerful people in America” while claiming that only 20% of them are people of color. The term “people of color” is already ambiguous enough with white professors, grad students, and NAACP presidents claiming to be black. . . The Times claimed that only 112 of the 431 House of Representatives members are people of color. It lists Rep. Rashida Tlaib as a person of color,...

    Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) took a shot at Joe Biden on Wednesday after his presidential campaign dissociated itself with anti-Semitic liberal activist Linda Sarsour. "I am so sick and tired of folks going after Sarsour and other Palestinian activists for speaking the truth about oppression and injustice," Tlaib wrote on social media. "You don’t get it yet. We don’t stop until everyone is free. We will always outwork the hate." Tlaib's remarks came after Biden’s campaign emphatically denied having connections to Sarsour after she spoke at a Democratic National Convention caucus meeting Tuesday. Andrew Bates, a spokesman for the...

    'Squad' membership likely to grow following progressive primary wins Minutes after progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota was projected as the winner of a Democratic primary where she was vastly outraised by one of her more moderate challengers, fellow "Squad" member Rep. Rashida Talib took to Twitter to celebrate. "Our squad is big!" wrote the congresswoman from Detroit, who defeated a formidable primary challenger in Michigan’s primary just a week earlier in another contest that like Omar's grabbed national attention.

    Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib violated the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 by paying herself a salary from her campaign after securing victory in the 2018 general election, the House Ethics Committee unanimously ruled on Friday. The Ethics committee found that Tlaib violated FECA’s personal use restrictions by paying herself $10,800 from her campaign when she was no longer a congressional candidate in late 2018 and ordered her to repay that amount back to her campaign within one year, the committee said in a report. The committee “determined that the evidence is sufficient to support a determination that a...

    Representative Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan, beat back a formidable primary challenge Tuesday from a repeat rival, widening her 2018 margin of victory and helping to cement the staying power of the progressive women of color who have shaped the party’s House majority. Ms. Tlaib, 44, defeated Brenda Jones, 60, the president of the Detroit City Council, according to The Associated Press. It was a flag-planting moment for Ms. Tlaib in her predominantly Black district, which includes portions of Detroit and its suburbs, as she easily defeated a prominent African-American leader with whom she split election wins two years ago.

    “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib was trying to fend off a serious challenge for her House seat in Michigan’s primary on Tuesday, in a rematch with the woman she narrowly defeated two years ago. Tlaib, one of the first two Muslim women in Congress, was seeking reelection in the 13th District in and around Detroit. Her sole opponent is Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones, who lost by 1 percentage point in 2018 when the primary field was larger. Jones on the same day defeated Tlaib to fill out the remainder of John Conyers’ term. Tlaib, 44, was leading in early...

    The House speaker said last year that Tlaib and rest of 'The Squad' 'didn't have any following' House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) endorsed Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D.) on Wednesday in her Democratic primary contest, in a change of course from her past criticisms of Tlaib and other members of "The Squad." "Rep. Tlaib never stops fighting for her district, which she is proud to represent," Pelosi said. "And I am proud to endorse her for re-election." Tlaib and the three other far-left House Democrats known as "The Squad" have had a contentious relationship with Pelosi and the Democratic...

    Twitter video at link. Michigan Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib's claim that Detroit Police Department officers abused peaceful protesters is "totally inaccurate," Detroit Police Chief James Craig remarked Tuesday. ~snip~ "I know that the congresswoman is making claims that they were peacefully marching when we intersected and intentionally hit peaceful protesters. [That is] not the case," the chief added. "They [surrounded] the vehicle, they began to pelt the vehicle –­ not just one of our police cruisers but two of them –­ and in one instance the rear window of one of our SUVs was broken out.

    Four House Democrats have written to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calling on the United States to cut assistance to Israel should it proceed to apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, JTA reported on Monday. The letter was initiated by Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Pramila Jayapal of Washington, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Betty McCollum of Minnesota. The letter to Pompeo is circulating among Democrats in a bid to add signatures. “Should the Israeli government move forward with the planned annexation with this administration’s acquiescence, we will work to ensure non-recognition as well as pursue conditions on...

    A former television news anchor. A retired New York City police officer and high school civics teacher. An attorney who runs a mediation practice and serves as a volunteer minister. These are just a few of the candidates -- Democrats and Republicans -- who have lined up to challenge three of the most high-profile freshman House Democrats: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. It's not easy to unseat a sitting member of Congress, and the three members of the progressive "squad" have a number of built-in advantages as they run for reelection. **SNIP** But they have become high-profile targets...

    Democrats in Congress are demanding answers about the use of drones to surveil protesters during rallies in Minneapolis, Detroit, and other cities. In a letter to federal law enforcement agencies, a group of 25 lawmakers, including Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Brenda Lawrence, called for the end of what they say is unconstitutional surveillance of law-abiding residents. “While the job of law enforcement is to protect Americans, limited actions may be necessary if a demonstration turns violent,” the letter states. “However, this authority does not grant the agencies you lead to surveil American citizens or collect vast amounts of personal information.”...

    Rep.

    Pro-abortion leftists are obsessed with saying that men are obsessed with their bodies. As [sic] much as they are obsessed with abortion. Rep. Rashida Tlaib took a break from her anti-semitism to share her measured and well-reasoned defense over the right to abort your choices. If you’re a pro-life man maybe you should stop trying to sex her up. This past year, I realized, my, my, my are they obsessed with our bodies, how we talk, how we look, what we stand for.

    Pic of Rashida not for the faint of heart. In the latest volley, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who has endorsed Sanders, brought up Biden's treatment of Anita Hill while he was the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman during the 1991 confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment and testified before the committee. Biden has had to apologize on the campaign trail for his handling of the proceedings. "Q: Who silenced Anita Hill when she was trying to speak out about Clarence Thomas?" Tlaib tweeted. "A: Joe Biden," she said. …..
