Nancy Pelosi Defends Ilhan Omar: Not ‘Intentionally Antisemitic’


Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Wednesday, telling reporters that while Omar had made anti-Jewish remarks in recent weeks, she had not been “intentionally antisemitic.”

Pelosi’s remarks were reported by Jake Sherman of Politico, after a meeting of House Democrats “erupted into a full-scale brawl” over disagreements about a resolution condemning antisemitism, according to the Washington Post. Pelosi had planned a vote on the resolution Wednesday, but party leaders postponed even a watered-down version after some members objected. Democratic Party leaders could not say if or when a vote would happen.

Pelosi’s contention that Omar had not been “intentionally antisemitic” contradicts a recent timeline of events, which suggests that Omar was well aware that her comments about Israel were perceived to have crossed a crucial line: To read the rest of this article, which includes a bullet-pointed list of some of Omar’s anti-Jewish remarks, click HERE.

 

Ilhan Omar & Co. Were Elected Because of Their Racism, Not In Spite of It

Rep. Ilhan Omar is an antisemite and, as the actions of the congressional Democratic leadership last week made clear, hating Jews is a perfectly acceptable position in today’s Democratic Party.

Consider the chronology of events. Last month, Rep. Steven King (R-IA) was stripped of his committee assignments following a statement he made to the New York Times where he seemed to legitimize white supremacism. (King insists his remark was deliberately taken out of context).

Last week, Rep. Omar tweeted another statement that was inarguably antisemitic. Omar argued that the only reason that Congressional Republicans seek to censure her and her colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for their anti-Jewish bigotry is because Jewish money dictates their actions.

That is, she defended herself against allegations of antisemitism by proving, yet again, that she is an antisemite.

The Congressional Democratic leadership responded to Omar’s statements not by censuring her, let alone stripping her of her committee assignments – including her membership on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Rather Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), and their colleagues reacted to Omar’s presentation of further proof that she hates Jews and sees the world through the distorted lens of antisemitism by asking her to apologize.

That is, she was allowed to get away with it.

Indeed, when Omar was asked if she feared that her bigotry would cause her to be stripped of her committee assignments, she responded confidently, “Absolutely not.”

In the event, Omar issued a self-evidently fake apology, in which she effectively repeated the antisemitic slur that Jews dictate policy through the pro-Israel lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), for which she was apologizing. She then proceeded to re-tweet a post that backed up her contention that Jews control U.S. policy with their money.

What does the Democratic leadership’s decision to give her a pass for bigotry tell us about the nature of today’s Democratic Party?

Hoyer as well as Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Elliot Engel (D-NY)are strongly pro-Israel. Pelosi, while less outspoken, has never been a foe of the Jewish state or of American Jews who support Israel and seek to secure continued bipartisan support for a strong U.S. alliance with the Middle East’s only democracy.

And yet, all of these leaders gave a pass to a woman who effectively said that American Jews exert malign and all-powerful influence over the Congress with their “Benjamins,” (which we now all know, thanks to Omar’s slur, refers to $100 bills).

What gives?

To find the answer it is necessary to look in two directions – first to former president Barack Obama’s consigliere, Valerie Jarrett. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

Judge Jeanine Pirro Contemplates a Flying Witch

In her opening statement on Saturday’s “Justice With Judge Jeanine,” Fox News host Judge Pirro slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelozi and the Democrats for not making a deal with President Trump to end the partial government shutdown.

Following is a partial transcript:

…And Nancy, this is just the two of us here talking. Admit it. Your big donors in California, they want illegals to pick grapes. Even Cesar Chavez, you’re old enough to remember him, fought tooth and nail to stop illegal immigrants to protect legal immigrants and the farm workers.  It’s all theater, folks. The president, they say is a fear monger.

This is a manufactured crisis. Say that to the face of an Angel Mom whose child was murdered or massacred by illegal immigrants. You have kids Nancy? You do, don’t you. And why did you approve securing the 2000, the border, like so many of your Democrat cronies in 2006 and 13 under the Secure Fence Act? But not this? The obvious answer: Because Donald Trump wants it. Instead your path is to disrespect Americans and instead respect those who violate our laws. While you and your ilk praise pictures, uh raise pictures of furloughed federal employees, when you won’t meet with the Angel Moms who come to your office with pictures of American children killed by illegals

So let me see if I understand this. An American mother shows a picture of a child murdered by an illegal. And Chuck Schumer and his gang, they come out and show pictures of federal employees. Is there a moral equivalency here? Are you folks skitzo? Are you working for Americans or illegals? Or is it that you just don’t give a damn? You vacation in Hawaii. Your buddies vacation with lobbyists in Puerto Rico during this shutdown. And you plan a jaunt to Europe while federal employees are trying to save every dollar to buy groceries.

Admit – it you don’t give a damn. Nancy, you’re a hypocrite, a political operative. Your mantra: Destroy the President of the United States. To hell with the taxpaying, hardworking Americans. Let them eat cake. “I’ve got a junket to go on, an ego to assuage and an electorate to ignore.” And Nancy if you’re too afraid to take a commercial flight, there are alternate ways to fly, Check this one out. it’s tailor-made for you.

Exclusive — Donald Trump, Jr., Kevin McCarthy to Host Tele-Townhall with One Million Low-Propensity GOP Voters Ahead of Midterms

By Matthew Boyle:

Donald Trump, Jr., and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy will host a teletownhall Sunday with a million low-propensity GOP voters, imploring them to get out to vote and back Republicans in Tuesday’s midterm elections, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.

““I can’t wait to join with Don Jr. again to rally the grassroots and help secure another House Republican majority,” McCarthy told Breitbart News.

“For months now, both Leader McCarthy and I have been doing everything in our power to help Republicans preserve our majority in the House,” Trump, Jr., President Donald Trump’s eldest son, added in a statement to Breitbart News. “For Republicans to be successful on Tuesday, we need our base to be motivated, and it’s our hope that this grassroots teletownhall is one way for us to make that a reality.” Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

Dems’ Plans Sabotage Workers

Don’t say this can’t happen – That’s what they said about ObamaCare.

Would you rather show up at work on time or stretch out on the sofa and watch TV? Stupid question. Most people punch a clock out of necessity. But progressive Democrats want to make work optional, and to guarantee a slew of benefits to everyone, whether they get off the couch or not. It’s a slap in the face to America’s workforce [bold type, mine].

Some 70 Democrats in the House of Representatives — more than one-third of the party’s representatives — endorsed a plan on Thursday to outlaw private health insurance and force all Americans into a government-run system. Let’s be clear. This plan is not about helping the needy. The plan would rip away medical coverage from half of all Americans, including the 157 million who get their insurance the old-fashioned way — earning it through a job. The plan, dubbed “Medicare for All,” would prohibit employers — even giant companies that self-insure — from covering workers, retirees or their families.

Union workers with gold-plated health benefits would have to give them up and settle for the same coverage as people who refuse to work at all. Why work?

Apparently, the Democratic Party no longer believes in work.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration is taking the opposite route — beefing up work incentives. Last Thursday, the president’s Council of Economic Advisers revealed that about half of able-bodied adults who collect benefits, such as food stamps, housing aid or Medicaid, work zero hours, while the nation’s working stiffs pay the tab.

Why should people toil if they can get take it easy and get freebies instead? No wonder nearly 1 out of every 5 working-age adults collects these benefits. Dependence soared during the Obama administration, while workforce participation plummeted.

The Trump administration wants to reverse this grim trend. The administration is urging states to require able-bodied adults on Medicaid to do something — work, go to school, go to job training, get addiction treatment, take English as a second language or care for a family member. But House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., bashes these efforts as “mean-spirited,” and left-wing advocacy groups are suing to stop them.

No surprise. After all, back in 2010, Dems sold Obamacare to a doubting public with the argument that it would allow them to quit their jobs in the “pursuit of happiness.” Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion and health plan subsidies would liberate them, Pelosi promised. “Just think, if you could be a photographer, a writer,” instead of being locked in a job to get health coverage. The Congressional Budget Office warned that the Affordable Care Act would reduce the incentive to work. Astoundingly, Democrats considered that a positive.

Nancy Pelosi Thinks of the “Children”

Presenting the Left’s new narrative, “Open Borders for the Illegals and their families. If you want a Wall, you are a “Nazi Child Torturer”.

Translation: My family wants more free things quickly.

The third world invasion of the West is relentless.

In Europe, the globalists want Islam as the one-world religion and so they continue to allow ‘migrants’ to pour in and change cultures. In America, we are told we are immoral for not letting children of lawbreakers reunite with their parents and come in without consequence. In effect, globalist politicians such as Pelosi are demanding open borders. They know open borders will allow more and more ‘refugees’ will pour in and demand free stuff.

No need for them to respect our country’s Constitution, laws or culture. No need for them to learn English and try to blend in and succeed when we’re giving them free stuff and services. They will vote for Democrats, and globalist socialism. They will vote to take away our guns. That’s all that matters to Pelosi’s ilk. Continue reading at grrrgraphics.com.

Look What Happens When You “Fillibuster” for Illegal Aliens


Michelle Malkin suggested a great way for the GOP to cap off Pelosi’s long speech in defense of “DREAMers” and promoting of DACA:

Breaking: A Statement from our Congressman, Ted Yoho

The following statement was released by Congressman Ted Yoho (R, FL) earlier this morning:

Yesterday in your Nation’s Capitol, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi grandstanded on the House floor for 8 hours, effectively preventing Members of the House from conducting their business on behalf of the American people. The citizens – the very people that have sent all Members of Congress to do the Nation’s business and keep government functioning – were forsaken for a group of people residing in our Nation illegally.

The important work that was to be completed included funding for our military, national security, disaster relief and more, but no. Mrs. Pelosi chose to place a greater value on illegal aliens rather than the legal, law abiding citizens who have elected not just her, but our entire body that makes up Congress.

It is a sad day for our Republic when any Member of Congress holds hostage critical funding for all of government over an issue such as amnesty for people here illegally. She has demanded a debate on amnesty; a debate that was agreed to over a week ago. What we witnessed yesterday was nothing more than a PR stunt – another sad example of party politics over Country.

What Nancy Pelosi did was an injustice for all Americans. Yes, our immigration policy is a disgrace but grandstanding for eight hours, stopping the House from funding our military or National security is an outrage.

I pray that perhaps someday Mrs. Pelosi and the party she leads will consider putting putting America and her citizens first and genuinely work with all colleagues to solve our Country’s many serious challenges instead of resorting to tawdry partisan politics.

 

DACA ‘Kids’ Have Changed My Mind About Amnesty

 

Breitbart News

By Joel Pollak

This week, illegal aliens stormed Capitol Hill and demanded that Congress legalize President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, as well as the broader “Dream Act.”

They were outraged that Democrats caved to President Donald Trump and the GOP by re-opening the government on Monday without legalizing DACA or providing legal status for millions of “Dreamers” who came to the U.S. as minors.

But the DACA “kids” did not simply lobby elected representatives, as Americans typically do.

Instead, they staged a mock funeral in the Capitol building at which they accused Republicans of “killing the dreams of our people.” They invaded and occupied the Senate office of Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) — who actually favors amnesty for “Dreamers” — and shouted “F*ck this conservative! F*ck this person!” as the bewildered staff looked on helplessly. The “Dreamers” even hurled racial abuse at Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), whom they accused of “white passing.”

Not content with attacking Republicans, the DACA “kids”also  protested outside the home of Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), chanting in Spanish and English: “If he won’t let us dream, we won’t let him sleep.”
