    “Squad” member Rep. Jamaal Bowman allegedly maintained a personal YouTube account that subscribed to users pushing outrageous conspiracy theories — many with roots in antisemitism. As recently as last month, the Bronx and Westchester Democrat was creating playlists of videos using the screen name Inner Peace, according to the Daily Beast. The outlet reported that the Bowman channel followed troves of accounts peddling bonkers claims about aliens, flat Earth theory, UFOs and the Illuminati.

    First, the actual solutions to what’s happening on campus would be to 1. Deport foreigners supporting terrorists 2. Defund the departments are responsible for turning campuses into activism hubs 3. Restore order on campuses using state or federal law enforcement 2 out of 3 of those are evergreen and even the third would mostly apply to the BLM riots and other forms of political harassment. The ‘Antisemitism Awareness Act’ falls far short of that. Despite the false claims on social media, it does little more than allow Jewish students to sue colleges for allowing harassment of Jews under the guise...
  • Bernie Sanders Confronted About Ilhan Omar Saying ‘All Jewish Kids Should Be Kept Safe’ Even If They’re ‘Pro-Genocide’

    CNN’s Dana Bash confronted Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Sunday over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN)’s visit to Columbia University, where she gave a statement about the pro-Palestinian protests. Omar’s own daughter was suspended from Columbia-affiliated Barnard College last week after being arrested at the Gaza Solidarity Encampment on the Morningside Heights campus. Omar was recorded saying, “I think it is really unfortunate that people don’t care about the fact that all Jewish kids should be kept safe and that we should not have to tolerate anti-Semitism or bigotry for all Jewish students, whether they are pro-genocide or anti-genocide.” Bash asked Sanders,...

    The messaging of modern Leftist activism is muddled at best. It wasn’t long ago when the activist Left had a whole laundry list of systems and impersonal forces that it was battling against: sexism, homophobia, white supremacy, ableism – you name it. The Millenial Left may have nodded along to Bernie Sanders’ old labour-Left leanings. Still, they largely abandoned the class struggle of old for a struggle against boutique oppressions that were contingent but intersecting, hence the rise of so-called “intersectionality.” That’s the once-trendy academic philosophy that relies on a view of power relations of society, where advantages and disadvantages...
  • Democratic group accused of anti-Semitism for mocking names of Jewish NY pols

    A liberal Democratic activist group is being accused of anti-Semitism for mocking the names of two Jewish politicians — House candidate Dan Goldman and state Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz. “The jerk buying a House seat with inherited money is ‘Goldman’ … the IDC-adjacent Assembly member is ‘DINOwitz.’ Who came up with these names, Dickens?” a member of No IDC NY wrote in a since-deleted tweet on Saturday. The left-wing group was formed to defeat former members of the Independent Democratic Conference in the state Senate, who had a partnership with Republicans that helped keep the GOP in power. The IDC disbanded...
  • John Fetterman's top communications staffers have all resigned to pursue more liberal positions as the Democrat combats anger from progressives over his pro-Israel stance

    Top staffers for Democrat John Fetterman are leaving his office for more progressive jobs as the Pennsylvania senator moves more to the center on key issues. The everyman Democrat, who loves Carhartt hoodies and dawning a disheveled goatee, has staunchly supported Israel's war on Hamas and denounced calls for a ceasefire. He's also expressed support for increased U.S. border security, another position that puts him at odds with his party. The freshman Democrat was elected after securing support from some of the most liberal members of Congress in 2022. The towering 6 foot 8 inch senator, previously supported Democrat Socialist...

    The liberal actor declared, 'In all honesty, I have educated myself so much since 2016' --------------------------------------------- Comedian and pro-Israel advocate Michael Rapaport shredded what the modern Democratic Party has become and explained why he is increasingly considering voting for Trump in a new interview. As part of a series about the Israel-Hamas conflict that rages in the Middle East, an interviewer from Visegrad24 spoke to Rapaport on the shores of an Israeli beach and asked, "Have your political views shifted? You’ve been a very vocal anti-Trump - probably the most vocal anti-Trump celebrity out there. Have your views shifted? I...

    (New York Jewish Week) — The Jewish Democratic Council of America, the leading Jewish organization affiliated with the Democratic Party, endorsed George Latimer in his bid to unseat New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman in the upcoming primary. It also endorsed Wesley Bell in his campaign to unseat Rep. Cori Bush in Missouri, marking the first time that the Jewish Democrats have endorsed primary challengers to Democratic incumbents. Both incumbents have been vocal critics of Israel. In New York’s 16th district, which covers southern Westchester County and a sliver of the northern Bronx and is home to a sizable Jewish community,...

    Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), a member of the left-wing “Squad” in the Democratic caucus, walked back claims he made in November on Tuesday that reports of rapes committed by Hamas terrorists were Israeli “propaganda.” In a now-viral video that resurfaced from TikTok, Bowman told a rally held on November 17 in Westchester, New York, that the claims of rape, among other claims, were mere “propaganda” justifying the “siege” of Gaza. SCOOP: In the weeks after Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel, Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) not only publicly cast doubt on reports that Israeli women were raped, but also called...

    A House Oversight and Accountability subcommittee hearing Tuesday examined threats to the security and reliability of the U.S. electricity grid, which can lead to more blackouts. While reliability assessments regularly find that increased reliance on wind and solar, increased demand from electrification, an underbuilt electrical delivery network, and rapid retirements of on-demand generators are creating an increased risk of blackouts, Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., ranking member of the subcommittee, instead blamed other sources of the problem, namely, white supremacy. She also threw in "climate change" for good measure.

    CNN pundit Scott Jennings provoked the ire of several “Squad” members when he referred to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as a “public relations agent for Hamas” during a recent panel discussion. Jennings joined a conversation hosted by CNN’s Abby Phillip — and he responded to Omar’s promise to vote to re-elect President Joe Biden in 2024 despite any misgivings she might have about his administration’s continued support for Israel in the war against the terror group Hamas. Phillip began by asking Scott whether he was surprised to hear Omar say she would vote for Biden, adding, “And some of her...

    Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is facing backlash on social media over a resurfaced clip that seemingly contradicts President Biden’s recent comment where he walked back calling Laken Riley’s alleged killer an "illegal." "People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enters the U.S. legally," Schumer said during a 2009 speech. "Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced that we will stop future flows of illegal immigration we will make no progress on dealing with the millions...

    On Tuesday’s “CNN NewsNight,” Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) accused the Biden administration of inaccurately placing the blame for the lack of a six-week ceasefire solely on Hamas because “Hamas showed up to Egypt, it’s my understanding, for the negotiations. It was Israel that refused to send negotiators” to the table and “you have to remember that a ceasefire is not something that happens magically. It is a process that is negotiated by different parties that have interests.” Host Abby Phillip asked, “So, we just had one of your Democratic colleagues, Rep. Moskowitz (D-FL), on the show last night. He suggested...

    VIDEOIs this the scenario that will play out at the 2024 State Of The Union speech? The more I think about it the more likely'it seems it will happen. And the shouting might not be coming just from the gallery. I wouldn't doubt if it comes from the chamber itself with various members of the Squad doing the shouting. If this scenario does play out then don't be surprised if the media somehow blames Trump for it.

    Congressional candidate Bhavini Patel’s campaign said a planned Feb. 7 appearance at the University of Pittsburgh was called off the night before because of concerns about “disruption." Patel, who is a Pitt alumna, had been slated to speak Wednesday evening as part of an alumni speaker series hosted by Pitt's Frederick Honors College. But she said in social media postings that Pitt had “canceled my speaking engagement citing concerns of disruption and my safety." The university has asked Patel to reschedule the event for later in the year. But she said Wednesday night that, "It saddens me that I couldn’t...

    The deputy minister of foreign affairs of Somaliland called Omar's recent comments "lacking in common decency." Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a progressive member of the so-called “Squad” and a Mogadishu native, is facing calls for her resignation after, critics say, she promised to do all she could to prevent a Somaliland deal with Ethiopia over access to the sea. “The language she employed was regrettably unbecoming of both the office she holds and the constituents she represents,” wrote Rhoda Elmi, deputy foreign affairs minister of Somaliland, which declared its independence from Somalia in 1991 but which most most countries, including...

    Bush confirmed Tuesday the Department of Justice is investigating the more than $750,000 her campaign has spent on private security services since 2019. Bush came under fire last year after she married one of her private security guards, Cortney Merritts, who has received at least $74,000 in campaign funds protecting the Squad lawmaker. She has also paid $152,000 to her personal friend, Nathaniel Davis III, for security services. Davis claims to have a host of supernatural abilities, including the power to summon tornadoes at will and make fire appear out of nothing

    "Squad" Democrats gathered on Capitol Hill to call for a permanent cease-fire in Gaza on Thursday, doubling down on accusations that Israel is targeting civilians and committing "genocide." Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., held the press conference alongside Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. They also invited members of the Doctors Without Borders organization, which provides humanitarian aid in Gaza. Bush had vicious words for Israel during her opening remarks. "When we hear genocidal rhetoric, when we witness devastation and mass murder, when we finance the bombs being dropped, when we intentionally disregard the suffering, we allow the people...

Gaines fired back at Rep. Summer Lee, D-Pa., the ranking member of the House Oversight Subcommittee on Health, after the Squad member took a shot at the witnesses' testimony during her opening remarks. Lee called the women's testimonies against biological males playing in women's sports "transphobic" – something Gaines did not take lightly. There's a place for everybody to play sports in this country," Gaines said, noting transgender Americans were...

    Squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) pushed back on remarks that she was not "cute" or "attractive enough" to ignore her constituents, claiming the comment reminded her of former President Donald Trump. Omar claimed the rhetoric, which was used by her Democratic primary challenger, Don Samuels, earlier this month, was unbecoming of someone seeking elected office.
