11 pro-Israel NGOs demand Ilhan Omar be removed from House Foreign Affairs Committee

Embattled Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) continues to spark outrage over her antisemitic Tweets and comments, even drawing rebukes from within her own caucus. Now, a group of eleven pro-Israel non-government organizations have sent a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Foreign Affairs Committee chair Eliot Engel demanding the freshman Congresswoman be removed from the important foreign affairs committee.

Jewish Groups Demand Omar Be Removed From Committee

https://freebeacon.com/national-security/exclusive-leading-jewish-groups-demand-anti-semitic-omar-be-removed-from-foreign-affairs-committee/A group of leading Jewish organizations petitioned the House of Representative’s top Democrats on Monday, demanding that Rep. Ilan Omar (D., Minn.) be removed from her position on the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee in light of her numerous anti-Semitic remarks and ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Jewish people, according to a copy of a letter exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Omar, who has been singled out multiple times in her short career on Congress due to several anti-Semitic comments, continued to double down on her belief that pro-Israel members of Congress are more loyal to Israel than America on Sunday.

Here is a pdf of the letter.

“In our opinion, Rep. Omar has already acknowledged that she, herself, has a problem with anti-Semitism,” the letter states.ย “Yet, even after her ‘apology’ for her antiSemitism, she went on to speak at a forum together with well-known antiSemites who have known ties to terrorist organizations and those who seek harm to the Jewish people and the destruction of the State of Israel.”

My Take

The left will try to paint this as an attempt by bigots to get rid of a Muslim, but nothing could be further from the truth. It wouldn’t matter if she were Jewish, Christian, atheist, or anything else. Her attacks on the Jewish state of Israel, our greatest ally in the Middle East and arguably the world, should instantly disqualify her for sitting on a committee that deals directly with our foreign affairs. There are just certain biases that simply don’t fit with certain committees.

Few are calling for her to step down from the House altogether, though that should probably also be a consideration considering the fact she’s continue to demonstrate anti-American perspectives, but that’s for the voters of Minnesota to decide next year. In the meantime, having her on this committee is ridiculous.

There have been signs of sanity from Democratic leadership as they occasionally rebuke the most insane perspectives within their caucus, but these signs have been few and far between. It’s time to set the tone. Are Democrats really as anti-Israel as they seem to be?

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tax lien actually matters

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs tax lien actually matters

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a tax lien against her for a failed business venture from 2012. She owes $1,877.56 in unpaid corporate taxes. No big deal, right? Things happen.

I would actually be in the camp who’s currently calling this a nothingburger except for one major point. She still hasn’t paid it. It’s not an insignificant amount, but it’s also not an amount that needs to linger for years, and especially not for two weeks after an aide said she would be paying it immediately. Why didn’t she? Why are lawyers looking it instead?

But on Thursday, her aide Corbin Trent said that the Congresswomanโ€™s lawyers were looking into the matter.

It’s one thing to say, “Oops,” and get it paid. It’s another thing altogether to say, “Oops,” then not get it paid, then get lawyers involved in the matter. This isn’t something one would consider contestable; she started a business venture, it failed, now she owes money. As a member of the House of Representatives, and as a socialist who believes in taking people’s money and redistributing it, she should be willing to pay off her debt to the government as quickly as possible.

This will go down as one of the many peculiarities about the Congresswoman that she’s probably going to blame on conservative media. After all, socialism and personal responsibility don’t usually go hand-in-hand.

Joe Biden is considering Stacey Abrams as his running mate. Why hasn’t he declared yet?

Joe Biden is considering Stacyy Abrams as his running mate Why hasnt he declared yet

The Joe Biden saga keeps getting stranger every week. While most anticipate the former Vice President is going to run for President in 2020, he still hasn’t announced despite most of the major candidates who were expected to run have already made their announcement. Now, a report that his staff is considering asking former Democratic contender for Georgia Governor Stacey Abrams continues to add fuel to speculation while also making this whole thing even more strange.

In 2016, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) made the rare move of announcing his Vice Presidential candidate,ย Carly Fiorina, before securing the nomination. It was a desperate move at a time when his prospects for defeating Donald Trump were fading and it didn’t work out. Biden’s alleged move is very different. He’s ahead in the very early polls even before the first debate, let alone the Iowa caucus. Yet speculating about a potential VP seems out of place, just like everything else in this whole debacle.

My theory is he’s trying to minimize the potential attack channels by cautiously field-testing everything first. By gathering data without officially announcing a run, he has the luxury of riding the speculation train as long as he can. He would be the instant frontrunner if he were to announce, but if history tells us anything, frontrunner status rarely means much. Hillary Clinton was the frontrunner from beginning to end in 2016, but even then the speculation of a late run by Biden was appealing to many Democrats.

Biden likely fears being the early frontrunner will generate fatigue for his name being tossed around so often. It’s still early; at this point in 2015, only one major GOP candidate, Cruz, had officially announced his run. Biden wants to ride the speculation as long as possible knowing once he’s officially in, he’s open to attacks. Just as his old boss President Obama did in 2008, some lesser known high-energy candidate could sneak up on the frontrunner and knock them off quickly. In 2015, Jeb Bush and Scott Walker were early frontrunners before being embarrassingly tossed aside by Trump and the other candidates.

Whether or not Biden selects Abrams, and if she’s willing to take the nomination, this type of speculation allows him to stay in the news while people continue to hold their collective breath about a future announcement.

Bottom line, he’s running. He’s been running for a while. The fact that he’s not official yet only plays into the fundraising he’s missing, which he’ll be able to make up quickly once he announces. All in all, the Democratic race is turning hilarious.

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats’ incentive on Electoral College

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats incentive on Electoral College

The founders decided to employ an Electoral College in picking the President to prevent tyranny by majority. They realized back then exactly what is happening today – the establishment of urban and suburban echo chambers that would rather see flyover country engulfed by a giant tornado than to “suffer” through conservative and Christian ideologies, especially in Washington DC. This is the driving force behind the sudden push to abolish the Electoral College, and the satirical masterminds at Babylon Bee nailed it.

Democratic candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is leading the charge to make the process that saved us from a Hillary Clinton presidency obsolete. Why? Because they can’t figure out how to win otherwise. Sure, they were able to dominate the Electoral College with Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, but the last two Democratic Presidents were running against weak Republicans in both of their elections. Had they been running against conservatives, especially in each of their first elections, the results may have been very different and the country may be in much better shape by now.

Nevertheless, this is what the Democrats want. Any system that can yield President Trump is a system they know they can fight against with their unhinged supporters, blind followers, and Trump haters.

That’s the nature of America today. Satire doesn’t need to venture too far away from reality in order to get a hilarious version of the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in, especially as it pertains to the loony party on the far left.
