The Department of Justice (DOJ) won’t deliver the redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to Congress until after a press conference from Attorney General William Barr, a Democratic aide told The Hill.
The aide said lawmakers on Capitol Hill would receive the report at 11 a.m. on Thursday, more than an hour after Barr is expected to begin his press conference.
The decision immediately led to complaints from Democrats and criticism from the media, which said it would allow the administration to spin news favorably for the White House before anyone sees Mueller’s full report.
If a politician of Japanese extraction were addressing a “largely Japanese-American audience” and characterized the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor as “some people did something,” would you think that those words diminished the loss of life and of property suffered by our country 78 years ago in the Pacific Ocean? I would, but apparently Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) would not.
On Tuesday morning, the Nation of Islam’s research group defended Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who has come under fire for her comments minimizing the tragedy of the 9/11 terror attacks. The Nation of Islam Research Group, an arm of the Nation of Islam led by notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, tweeted a video in which Farrakhan claims the George W. Bush administration orchestrated the 9/11 attacks.
“This lawsuit aims to fully expose the scandalous collusion between the Obama FBI and the Clinton-DNC political operation to target Hillary Clinton’s political opponent, Donald J. Trump,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “The corrupted FBI owes Americans total transparency on this scandal.”
‘It has to stop,” says Representative Ilhan Omar.
No, it does not.
Representative Omar, the Jew-hating Minnesota Democrat, is engaged in one of her usual games of misdirection, a pattern of hers that by now is familiar enough to be predicted: She says something outrageously stupid, offensive, anti-Semitic — or all three at once — and then attempts to parry the thrust of inevitable criticism by characterizing it as an attack on Muslims, women, women of color, Muslim women of color, etc.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes the US should consider cutting military and economic aid to Israel — and Jewish Democrats are blasting her for it.
“I think it’s something that can be discussed,” she said Sunday on Yahoo’s “Skullduggery” podcast, adding that the idea should “certainly” be on the table.
Over the past week I’ve learned two important things from our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left: 1) Free speech that criticizes a Democrat is tantamount to violence, and 2) Actual violence committed by a Democrat is a form of free speech.
“White people,” he tweeted, along with a video clip of Pelosi’s “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday. “Nobody likes giving up power. And they never see the writing on the wall. The new day arrives and no one has the heart to tell them they and their old tired privileged ways are over.”
The hashtag #IStandWithOmar was trending on Twitter Saturday as backers of Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted their support amidst the controversy surrounding President Donald Trump’s Friday post featuring the Minnesota congresswoman.
But Omar supporters weren’t the only ones to weigh in.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is setting off fresh waves of outrage for citing a famous quote about the Holocaust in her latest defense of fellow freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar.
AOC referenced Martin Niemoller’s sorrowful meditation on inaction in the face of injustice, known for the refrain “first they came,” to complain about critics who denounced Omar this week for minimizing the 9/11 attacks.
“@IlhanMN’s life is in danger,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, over a photo of Niemoller’s words. “For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress.”
The earth is flat; FEMA is controlled by shape-shifting reptilians; water additives are turning the freaking frogs gay… Conspiracy theories used to be the preserve of hippies and kooks, but now the Democratic party wants in.
Although Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report has put to pasture the idea that President Donald Trump conspired with Russia to steal the 2016 election, there’s something about the ‘Russiagate’ conspiracy that just won’t die. For the Democratic Party and its cheerleaders and supporters in the media, the Russians are still the sinister force behind everything bad and rotten in American politics.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has had the gruesome twosome come to her aid: Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). It’s the anti-Semite defense league because the two have defended her prior when she was peddling anti-Semitic tropes that caused heartburn for her leadership and provided President Trump with the ammunition he needed to attack the Democrats for being anti-Jewish. Omar has run the gauntlet when it comes to winning the idiocy’s MVP award.
Former congressman and current Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has come up with an unexpected solution to the migration problem: the US must pour taxpayer money into countries where migrants originate from — predominantly the “Northern Triangle” of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras — to make their lives cozy enough to dissuade them from going to the United States.
President Trump on Friday released a video montage of the 9/11 attacks interwoven with controversial Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments that trivialized the acts of terror.
All but one Democrat in the House of Representatives (and at least two Republicans) have signed on to a bill that would force schools to allow male athletes who identify as women to compete on women-only sports teams even if they have a clear statistical advantage over female athletes.
