  • DEFAZIO INTRODUCES FINANCIAL TRANSACTION TAX ACT TO REIN IN WALL STREET AND GENERATE REVENUE FOR NATIONAL PRIORITIES

    https://defazio.house.gov ^ | Jan 15, 2021 | U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio (D-OR-04)
    Today, U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio (OR-04) introduced the Wall Street Tax Act, legislation to create a new tax on financial transactions that would generate billions in revenue, while reducing speculative trading and volatility in the market. “High-frequency traders front-run the market and drive up prices for individuals, pension funds and other value investors,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio. “Some days high-frequency traders trade billions of shares that they sometimes hold for only seconds or less. They reap enormous financial benefits for themselves and their privileged elite investors but add no value to our economy. Congress needs to rein in excessive speculative...

    Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) claims Republican lawmakers who would not wear masks during the U.S. Capitol riot were engaging in “criminal behavior” and “chemical warfare.” “These folks, I mean, they’re just — it’s criminal behavior, Don. I don’t know what else to call it,” said Pressley, a member of the “Squad,” in a recent interview with CNN’s Don Lemon. “They have been complicit from the very beginning, and their willful criminality to carry the water for Donald Trump, and these science denials, which allow this pandemic to rage out of control,” Pressley added. “And then by refusing to wear masks,...

    'Squad' bill not tied with other coronavirus aid, unlike bill introduced by Rep. Richard Neal ------ Members of the progressive "Squad" in the House on Thursday introduced their own bill to send $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans after President Trump this week demanded the $600 checks included in Congress' stimulus deal be increased to that number. The legislation was spearheaded by Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.; Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.; Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; and Pramila Jayapal D-Wash. It came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the House will meet on Monday to vote on stand-alone legislation for $2,000...

    Black Lives Matter activists are calling on the Biden administration to embrace legislation brought forth by a group seeking to “abandon” police and prisons. The BREATHE Act, introduced over the summer by ‘Squad’ members Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), has been developed by the Electoral Justice Project for the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL). The group’s website makes clear that America “cannot achieve genuine safety and liberation until we abandon police, prisons, and all punishment paradigms.” The Act itself, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, not only seeks to defund the police but also divest resources from incarceration and...

    The group Justice Democrats, which helped elect Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other members of the left-wing “Squad,” recoiled Tuesday at President-elect Joe Biden’s White House staff picks. The influential organization’s public rebuke reflects an internal Democratic Party power struggle two months before Biden takes office. “A Biden administration dominated by corporate-friendly insiders will not help usher in the most progressive Democratic administration in generations… progressives find corporate-friendly Biden appointments unacceptable” the organization wrote on Twitter.

    A wild conference call amongst House Democrats, details of which leaked on Twitter Thursday, shows emotional lawmakers distraught with Nancy Pelosi and the ‘Squad’ over their party’s disastrous election performance. Democrats had expected to pick up 10-15 seats on election day and have instead seen Republicans gain six net seats while being on track to net 10 seats overall. Several members of the caucus “angrily confronted” Pelosi over the losses and blasted radical progressives for tying the party to efforts to “defund the police” and “socialism.”

    This wasn't a memorial by the actual synagogue that was shot up. Instead Bend the Arc, a toxic leftist group backed by Soros' son, tried to hijack the memorialization of the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue by an alt-righter to push an anti-Israel and anti-Jewish agenda. And who better to invite to that kind of circus than Senator Bernie Sanders. Sanders delivered, bashing Israel, and insisting that the shooting of 11 Jews wasn't really about Jews, but about "multiracial democracy" and "immigrants, people of color, LGBTQ people". Then he shifted over to insisting, "All over the world...

    Rasha Mubarak cries ‘Islamophobia’ -- as the Young Democrats continue to affiliate with her. The Florida Democratic Party (FDP) has a problem. Her name is Rasha Mubarak, a Muslim activist who says Israel has no right to self-defense, memorializes terrorists, and degrades religious Jews, actions frequently exposed by this author. That said, Mubarak is also a National Committeewoman for FDP’s faction, the Florida Young Democrats. This month, FDP moved to shut down a Party event, because it featured Mubarak. Yet, the Young Democrats are still running events with her and advertising her on their website. Why is the Democratic Party...

    As the U.S. Senate on Monday voted 52-48 to confirm Trump-appointed Judge Amy Coney Barrett to serve on the nation's nine-member Supreme Court, the four progressive congresswomen comprising the so-called Squad advocated for increasing the number of justices on the nation's high court.

  • Why Won't Joe Biden Repudiate Anti-Semitic Democrats? | Opinion

    Newsweek ^ | 10/14/20 | Bruce Abramson and Jeff Ballabon
    At the first debate, Joe Biden took ownership of today's Democrats with an uncharacteristically clear proclamation: "I am the Democratic Party." With that, Biden assumed responsibility for repudiating and distancing himself from the anti-Semitism surging through his party's ranks. Anti-Semitism has been on full display among Democratic leaders and left-wing protest groups alike in recent years. Leaders of the Women's March, for example, proved so undeniably anti-Semitic that even former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz felt compelled to distance herself. Yet those same anti-Semites—Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory—were featured speakers at this summer's Democratic convention. The Women's March since recruited new...

    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for more seats to be added to the Supreme Court — shortly after Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed as the newest justice on the bench Monday evening. “Expand the court,” the Bronx-born congresswoman wrote on Twitter. Her message was re-tweeted by fellow “squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). “Remember that Republicans have lost 6 of the last 7 popular votes, but have appointed 6 of the last 9 justices,” Omar added. “By expanding the court we fix this broken system and have the court better represent the values of the American people.”

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday helped host an online event aimed at encouraging young people to vote that was organized by an activist who said last year that “America deserved 9/11.” The New York Democrat congresswoman, 31, spoke at the beginning of the virtual event, which was streamed on Twitch, and announced an “amazing lineup” of gamers to play “Among Us,” a newly popular video game. Hasan Piker, a vlogger who last year came under fire for saying “America deserved 9/11,” organized the event, which featured popular Twitch streamers along with Ocasio-Cortez and fellow congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who herself has...

    WASHINGTON — The election is still 18 days away but Democrats are already drawing battle lines over what a Biden administration ought to look like. Left-wing House members including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Katie Porter, Ayanna Pressley, Raúl Grijalva and candidate Jamaal Bowman along with 39 progressive groups signed a letter, obtained by POLITICO, arguing that no C-suite level corporate executives or corporate lobbyists ought to have Senate-confirmed positions in a Biden administration. “One of the most important lessons of the Trump administration is the need to stop putting corporate officers and lobbyists in charge of our government,” they wrote. “As...

    Fox 9 did a little piece defending Ilhan Omar's diabolical ballot harvesting scheme in Minneapolis and attacking James O’Keefe. In this video O’Keefe fires back at Fox 9 and let it rip at full barrel. O’Keefe systematically dismantles the illegal ballot harvesting defenders at Fox 9 in Minneapolis and takes them apart. Only 9 minutes long. Some Fox stations have gone full retard and are now full members of the massive fake news propaganda and disinformation machine to steal the elections from Trump and the GOP in November. Be warned accordingly.

    An international team of scientists said Monday it had joined forces to combat the spread of anti-Semitism online with the help of artificial intelligence. The project Decoding Anti-Semitism includes discourse analysts, computational linguists and historians who will develop a "highly complex, AI-driven approach to identifying online anti-Semitism," the Alfred Landecker Foundation, which supports the project, said in a statement Monday. "In order to prevent more and more users from becoming radicalized on the web, it is important to identify the real dimensions of anti-Semitism - also taking into account the implicit forms that might become more explicit over time," said...

    This article is an adapted excerpt from “Abuse of Power: Inside the Three-Year Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s avoidance of impeachment was going to be one of many problems the House speaker would have with “The Squad.” Over the summer, her grip on power began to weaken, as she tried to put down a party rebellion.Pelosi’s compromise border security funding bill initially had only nominal Democratic opposition. But The Squad, consisting of Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley, wanted to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement, not fund it. The Senate...

Joe Kaufman, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is Chairman of the Joe Kaufman Security Initiative and the 2014, 2016 and 2018 Republican Nominee for U.S. House of Representatives (Florida-CD23). Last month, a letter was published, signed by a large number of organizations, calling on Progressives to “drop” their partnerships with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), claiming that the ADL “undermines the rights of marginalized communities.” What is at the heart of this letter is the perception that the ADL is a defense mechanism for the state of...
