    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. And, the information I...

    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. Rashida Tlaib said during a campaign appearance for Bernie Sanders that she supports the Vermont socialist partially because she would like a president that you don’t have to check "all the time.” “This is a once-in-a-lifetime moment in our country to elect someone who won’t sell us out,” she said to cheers, according to Breitbart News. “It would feel good to have a president that you didn’t have to check him all the time.” The Michigan Democrat added that 2020 is “about showing up for others” and urged Sanders supporters to keep the “kids caged at the border” in...

    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. I mean, this type of policing of our bodies is so interconnected to all the social justice...

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. …..

    On Saturday, a man in a van drove into a tent with Trump campaign volunteers in it who were registering people to vote. The incident took place in a Walmart parking lot in Jacksonville, Florida. Fortunately, the people in the tent were able to jump out of the way in time. But the man allegedly got out of the vehicle and gave the finger to the volunteers before he sped away and he videoed at least part of the incident. That last action seemed to make it very clear that it wasn’t an accident and that it was a targeted...

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Iowa on Friday. **SNIP** At the end of their discussion, activist Dionna Langford, who was serving as moderator, mentioned Clinton recently saying "nobody likes [Sanders]," eliciting boos from the audience.
