    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently held its 25th Annual Gala in Washington, D.C, in which CAIR's executive director announced a goal of pushing more Islamists into Congress. As the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports, CAIR's executive director Nihad Awad shares the "formula" he believes will secure Islamists greater political power: "A strong CAIR equals a strong community. A strong community will produce a strong and confident and successful Muslim ... "So I'm telling you tonight we are going to work in the next years, inshallah (God willing], to elect at least 30 Muslims in the Congress. This...

    **SNIP** Although none of the Democratic candidates explicitly rebuked Mr Obama's comments, Mr Sanders mounted the strongest defence of his policy platform. Answering questions on a forum aired by Univision , a Spanish-language TV network, he was asked whether Mr Obama was "right" to say voters didn't want systemic change. Mr Sanders, who describes himself as a democratic socialist and progressive, laughed and said: "Well, it depends on what you mean by tear down the system." "The agenda that we have is an agenda supported by the vast majority of working people," he said. "When I talk about raising the...

    In the past two weeks I have met with three new Somali sources. They have confirmed everything we have previously reported here about Omar’s back pages. I have in addition continued to meet with my original Somali sources. Their reliability has been proved many times over. Taken together, they have made the following points: • There is widespread fear of Omar in the community. They do not feel free to speak out publicly. They require assurance that I will keep their identity in confidence. • At a meeting with two of my three new sources last week, we spotted Hirsi...

    Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is failing to garner significant support for his longshot presidential bid nationally, a Reuters/Ipsos poll released this week shows. Bloomberg, who signaled his intention to jump into the crowded Democrat primary field this week by filing paperwork to appear on the ballot in Arkansas’ March 3 presidential primary, is failing to see any sort of significant support nationally, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll. The poll, which surveyed 2,235 adults between November 12–14, 2019, showed only three percent of Democrats and independents supporting the former New York City mayor. Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) and Sen....

    The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses -- and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process. The document dump was related to the committee's ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be "expanded" based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Additionally, the Ethics Committee acknowledged for the first time on Thursday an investigation into Florida Democratic Rep....

    What do Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri—that is, the late leader of ISIS, and the late and current leaders of al-Qaeda—have in common? That they’re among the world’s most notorious Islamic terrorists? Yes, but there’s something else, something more subtle, that binds them: they all began their careers as members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the oldest and most widespread political Islamic organization in the world. (snip) Of course, a year later Egypt revolted against the Brotherhood, which found itself again labeled a terrorist organization. Even so, the Brotherhood remains alive and well, particularly in the United...

    A gem and mineral museum is offering $25,000 to the first person who can find a chunk of the meteor spotting streaking across Midwestern skies this week.

The basketball-sized fireball blazed across the sky at 33,500 mph, McClatchy news group reported. Video showed it trailing across the Missouri sky on Monday night.

    The campaign worker who walked out of his marriage to hook up with leftist congresswoman Ilhan Omar claims he never really loved his wife in bombshell court papers exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com. And Tim Mynett says he only agreed to marry Beth Jordan to prevent her from kicking him out of their home away from their then-six-year-old son. But Mynett denies his affair with the Minnesota freshman Democrat despite DailyMail.com pictures showing him leaving her apartment after sleepovers. The papers were filed in August but went undetected in the District of Columbia Superior Court until now.

    Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is calling the ouster of Bolivian President Evo Morales a 'coup' after the socialist leader resigned from office under pressure from the military. Omar, the 'squad' member and frequent critic and target of President Trump, made the statement after Morales, the first indigenous leader of Bolivia, left office Sunday after 14 years in power. The military had pressured him to go amid street protests. The Organization of American States (OAS) denounced 'clear manipulations' in his reelection bid and urged new elections be held. 'There's a word for the President of a country being pushed out by...

    Like it or not, 2020 is going to be a plebiscite on an American version of Orwell’s Nineteen-Eighty-Four. For a variety of reasons, the 2020 election is going to be a referendum beyond Donald Trump’s record and his Democratic opposition. The furor that Trump has incurred, and the radical antithesis to his agenda and first term, have redefined the looming election. It is becoming a stark choice between a revolutionary future versus American traditionalism. The choice in reductionist terms will be one between a growing, statist Panopticon, fueled by social media, a media-progressive nexus, and an electronic posse. Online trolls...

    It's the Memorial Day image that made Americans online everywhere put their hands to their hearts. A photo that amateur photographer Frank Glick snapped in 2011 of a bald eagle resting on a veteran's gravestone suddenly went viral after the Department of Veterans tweeted it earlier this week. And it's easy to see why. The shot depicts a bald eagle, America's iconic symbol of freedom, perched atop a gravestone, pensively looking out over the expanse. According to an interview with Fox News, Glick snapped the image early one morning at the Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minnesota before attending a...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar ripped McDonald’s on Thursday over its $42 million severance package for outgoing CEO Steve Easterbrook, who resigned last week after engaging in consensual affair with an employee. McDonald’s disclosed a filing that Easterbrook would receive six months of severance pay as well as stock considerations. The total value of Easterbrook’s severance package is nearly $42 million, according to an analysis by the executive compensation benchmarking firm Equilar. “McDonald’s former CEO violated company policy and was awarded almost $42 million,” Omar, D-Minn., wrote on Twitter. “Meanwhile, there are hardworking McDonald’s employees who deal with low wages and retaliation...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar accused of anti-Semitism before CAIR gala speech New anti-Semitism accusations are swirling around Rep. Ilhan Omar. A Saturday tweet by the controversial Minnesota congresswoman — referencing possible presidential contender Michael Bloomberg and philanthropist Leon G. Cooperman — has left critics crying “dog-whistle.” The questionable tweet came in response to a CNBC article revealing that Cooperman would be supporting Bloomberg in his 2020 presidential bid. “I wonder why,” Omar said, adding a suspicious “hmmm” emoji. Bloomberg and Cooperman are both billionaires — and both Jewish.

    Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren is expected to be joined at a town hall event in North Carolina on Thursday by Ayanna Pressley, the Massachusetts congresswoman who on Wednesday broke away from her Democratic “Squad” pack to support her home-state senator. The boost for Warren's candidacy comes as she has spent the week fending off attacks from former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democratic rivals -- and even from billionaires Bill Gates and Jamie Dimon. It also comes as Warren has seen a surge in the polls. The newest numbers show her surpassing Sen. Bernie Sanders -- the...

    Elizabeth Warren may be surging in the polls, but you wouldn’t know it by the size of the crowd that heard her speak on Friday. The senator from Massachusetts spoke at a sparsely attended environmental forum in Orangeburg, South Carolina, on Friday. The auditorium where the event was held appeared as if it could hold hundreds of spectators, but there were no more than a few dozen who could be seen watching the event. **SNIP** Most of the Democratic candidates in the race skipped the event.

    Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley endorsed fellow Massachusetts lawmaker Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic presidential primary Wednesday. Pressley's endorsement came after the rest of a grouping of progressive congresswomen colloquially known as "the Squad" announced they were supporting Senator Bernie Sanders' bid for the presidency. In a video posted to Twitter on Wednesday, Pressley said she was supporting Warren because the senator is a "consistent" advocate for progressive change who "never loses sight of the people." "You've all heard about the senator's plans, but here's the thing - the plans are about power. Who has it, who refuses to let it go,...
