    A group of liberal Democrats in the US Congress is pressing president Joe Biden to pursue direct talks with Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin, opening a new front of pressure on his Ukraine strategy as his administration tries to maintain domestic support for Kyiv. -snip- Talks with Moscow have the potential “to reduce harm and support Ukraine in achieving a peaceful settlement”, according to the letter, which was signed by lawmakers including Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley — a group of liberal congresswomen known as “the Squad”.

    'Squad' member reported between $15,001 and $50,000 from rental income in 2021 Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has pocketed up to $100,000 in rental income during the pandemic despite pushing to cancel rent, according to disclosure forms reviewed by Fox News Digital. Tlaib filed her latest annual financial disclosure report Thursday, which reveals she collected between $15,001 and $50,000 in rental income from a Detroit property in 2021. The Michigan Democrat reported the same rental income for 2020 last August, meaning she now made between $30,000 and $100,000 from rent payments during the pandemic. Tlaib, however, collected the rent checks despite...

    A Democratic Boston city councilor is under fire for informing her constituents that they are "letting the Zionists SHAKE YOU DOWN," rhetoric that a watchdog group says is grossly anti-Semitic. "Ya'll are letting the Zionists SHAKE YOU DOWN," Boston city councilor Kendra Lara tweeted on Thursday, referencing a court decision this week that upheld a law targeting the anti-Semitic campaign to boycott Israel. She later deleted the tweet. Lara—a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and an ally of "Squad" member Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.) who took the far-left congresswoman's "policy pledge"—quickly came under fire for the tweet, with...
  • Democrats Move To Lower Voting Age

    What in the world? During her weekly press conference on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she would support a lowering of the federal voting age to 16. “Squad” Rep. Ayanna Pressley has also caused a lowering of the voting age to 16 and for the age to buy firearms to be raised to 21. Pressley, a progressive House Democrat, is only one of the many members who have been calling for the voting age to be lowered. When Fox News Digital asked why she believed 16-year-olds were equipped to vote but not mature enough to purchase a firearm...

    Down in South Texas, you may be seeing the future of the Democrat Party, i.e. the energetic Left vs whoever centrist is left in the ranks. My friend George Rodriguez, a South Texas political analyst, feels that Cuellar will pull it out somehow. The final first round result was 48.66% for Cuellar and 46.62% for Cisneros. The Cisneros campaign is attacking Cuellar all over on radio to TV. Someone is going to win and someone is going to lose but can the Democrat Party recover? This is from Texas Tribune: “The stakes are very high,” said Jose Borjon, a Washington-based...

  • The DOJ is Told to Review Federal Charges for Kyle Rittenhouse After Jury Found Him ‘Not Guilty’ on All Counts

    The persecution of Kyle Rittenhouse continues. Even after a jury of his peers found the 18-year-old “not guilty” on all five counts in his high profile case, Democrat leaders are calling on the Department of Justice to intervene in the Rittenhouse case on “civil rights” grounds. House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jerry Nadler called on the DOJ to review the Kyle Rittenhouse case for possible federal charges. This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ. Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage...

    A group of House Democrats will propose a resolution urging the Biden administration to condemn Israel and support six Palestinian groups designated as terrorist organizations by the Jewish state. Rep. Betty McCollum (D., Minn.) plans to introduce a resolution celebrating the designated Palestinian groups for the "value and importance" of their "courageous work," according to Haaretz. The resolution will be cosponsored by several House Democrats, including Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), and Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.). Among the groups backed in the Democratic resolution are the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which is designated...

    House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Gregory Meeks (D., N.Y.) is silent on whether he will return a $3,000 donation from a prominent Palestinian activist who called Israel a "parasite" that "sucks the blood of America." Osama Abuirshaid, the executive director of American Muslims for Palestine, during an interview with Jordan's Yarmouk TV on Sept. 22 described Israel as "a parasite living off the American body" that "sucks the blood of America and scatters its attention," according to a translation from the Middle East Media Research Institute. Abuirshaid, who has a history of anti-Semitic comments, donated $3,000 to Meeks in March,...

    Unlike many private insurance plans, Medicare does not currently cover the cost of wigs. Massachusetts Representative Ayanna Pressley would like to change that.“[To] be bald as a woman really does disrupt conventional and societal norms of what is appropriate, what is professional, what is attractive, what is feminine,” Pressley — who has hair-loss causing autoimmune disease alopecia — told Vanity Fair in an interview Thursday. The same day, she unveiled a bill requiring Medicare to pay for wigs for those experiencing hair loss due to disease or medical treatments. The new bill is brought by Pressley and her Massachusetts House...

Rashida Tlaib's annual financial disclosure shows that she made thousands of dollars in rental income last year, despite being a co-sponsor of a bill to cancel rent during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tlaib joined fellow "Squad" Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and other progressives in April 2020 to co-sponsor Rep.

  • There's Another Area Where Biden is Failing His Faith, and His Party

    For how "devout" President Joe Biden supposedly is in his Catholic faith, there's another area where he could do better in living up to it. In this case it's his lack of action on preventing the death penalty from being carried out. Unlike his pro-abortion stance, though, Biden is angering members of his own party. Robert Dunham, the executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center, spoke to the Washington Examiner, saying that Biden's failure to act on the death penalty is "frustrating" to liberal Democrats. Such inaction on the death penalty is not merely hypothetical. As Spencer reported, Biden's...

    Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer appear to be at odds with a vocal segment of the Democratic Party that has criticized Israel's actions toward the Palestinians amid the region's escalating conflict. According to the Associated Press, more than 120 Palestinians have been killed—including 31 children and 20 women. An additional 900 have been injured. "My expectation and hope is this will be closing down sooner than later," Biden said . "Israel has a right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory." Pelosi issued a similar statement on Tuesday. "I condemn the escalating...
