    America’s First Two Muslim Congresswomen Will Both Be Fundraising For Hamas-Linked Organization.
    .
    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced Monday that Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib will be speaking at CAIR-Michigan’s annual banquet only days after the Hamas-linked organization revealed that fellow Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota will be speaking at CAIR-LA’s annual banquet.
    .
    CAIR is a notable pro-Palestinian organization with ties to Islamic terror groups. The U.S. Department of Justice listed CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in funding millions of dollars to the terrorist organization Hamas. Additionally, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) named CAIR a terrorist organization along with al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in 2014.
    .
    Tlaib will be the guest speaker at CAIR-Michigan’s 19th annual “Faith-Led, Justice Driven” banquet on March 17, according to the organization’s invitation. Single tickets start at $50 per person and a table can cost upwards of $500. Tickets for Omar’s March 23 event start at a similar price point.

    .
    Omar and Tlaib became America’s first Muslim congresswomen when sworn into office in January. Their time in office has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism.
    .
    Tlaib invited a pro-Hezbollah, anti-Israel activist to her swearing-in ceremony and the following private dinner in January. Days later, an op-ed column she wrote in 2006 for Final Call, a Nation of Islam publication founded by Louis Farrakhan, surfaced. She also has come under scrutiny for having ties to other anti-Israel individuals and for questioning the loyalty of Republican lawmakers who support the Jewish nation-state.
    .
    Omar has defended anti-Israeli statements, such as ones invoking Allah to expose Israel’s “evil doings,” and she is on record implying Israel is not a democracy. She gave an interview to a host that referred to Israel as the “Jewish ISIS” and mocked how Americans speak about al-Qaeda and Hezbollah.
    .
    Both congresswomen waited until after they won their congressional elections to reveal their support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. The Anti-Defamation League describes the movement as “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence.”
    .
    BDS has been metastasizing through college campuses, initially promulgated by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the movement’s most visible arm. SJP has been linked to the Islamic terror group Hamas, according to The Washington Free Beacon. Moreover, the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, the American umbrella group of the BDS movement, has reportedly given money to terrorist organizations like Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

    Kamala Harris Renews Pledge to Bypass Congress with Executive Gun Control
    .
    Kamala Harris used a July 13, 2019, tweet to renew her pledge to bypass Congress and enact executive gun control.
    .
    Harris tweeted: “Gun violence is the leading cause of death for young Black men in America. We must stop this. When president, I will take executive action to ensure guns do not fall into the wrong hands.”
    .
    Executive gun control has been a staple of Harris’ campaign for the Democrat presidential nomination.
    .
    On April 22, 2019, Breitbart News reported Harris’ plan to give Congress 100 days to pass new gun controls if she wins the White House. Should Congress fail to act, Harris made clear she would simply use executive orders to achieve the gun control she desires.
    .
    To date Harris has pledged executive action to require private gun sellers to conduct background checks on their sales, to direct the ATF to take away the license of any gun dealer who breaks the law, and to ban fugitives from buying guns.
    .
    Fugitives are already banned from buying guns but Harris is pushing a ban anyway.
    .
    Harris also promises to use executive action to block the importation of AR-15 rifles. On May 22, 2019, Breitbart News reported a National Shooting Sports Foundation report which showed that the importation of such rifles has been blocked since 1989, via ATF’s interpretation of import guidelines.

    I don't think that's going to work the second amendment gives us the constitutional right to keep and bear arms if she doesn’t like it that tough.
    .
    No. You cannot override the US CONSTITUTION and BILL OF RIGHTS.
    .
    Oh and by the way isn't she the one that slept her way to the top, do you really think we need something like that as a potential Presidential candidate nothing but a low-life tramp.

    Trump on Omar: ‘There’s a Lot of Talk About the Fact That She Was Married to Her Brother’ — ‘I’m Sure That Somebody Would Be Looking at That’
    .
    President Donald Trump brought up the allegations that far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) married her brother to a group of reporters on Wednesday before boarding Marine One for his rally tonight.
    .
    A reporter asked Trump a question about Omar and Trump replied: “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it. … I’m sure that somebody would be looking at that.”
    .
    Questions about Omar’s marital history have repeatedly been in the news as multiple news organizations have asked Omar to provide documents and answer specific questions that could clear up any controversy. Omar has refused to answer any questions about the matter.
    .
    Last month, the Star Tribune reported that “new investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.”
    .
    “Sent a list of questions and a request to talk to her siblings and father, Omar declined to do so,” the Tribune added. “Omar declined to make her tax and immigration records available for this report. … Omar’s relatives could also clear the air, but they have remained silent about her marriage … She declined to make her family available for this story.”

    Ocasio-Cortez On the Budget : ‘We Pay Soldiers Too Much’
    .
    The Cucaracha of Congress, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is fairly well-known for spouting out little “ideas” that most people would figure out were, well, dumb. This time, it seems the Baby Boss has been perusing the proposed budget sheet for the upcoming months, and had her little mind blown by what she saw, leading her to proclaim in an open session of Congress that : “Wow! We pay soldiers WAY too much!”
    .
    The average pray for an American soldier today works out to about $23.50 per hour. Just to compare, Colin Kaepernick makes millions a year to kneel for the anthem that they fight for and yap about sneakers. Who’s making too much money, half-pint?
    .
    Let’s not mention that the Pampered Pixie herself makes more than that just dancing on the walls in Congress and giving little speeches about how offended she was by the President tweeting. All he said was if you don’t like the country, leave. Totally not racist. There are black countries and Latino countries, you know. You can go back to them. Use your crybaby money to get an aisle seat.
    .
    Sigh.
    Luckily, Derpette Smurfette hasn’t actually made any moves to affect military pay rates, nor has she mentioned that she plans to. That’s good. Because sweetheart, trust me : you don’t want a couple dozen angry jarheads to show up at your bar on the next karaoke Friday.

    Rashida Tlaib Paid Herself $45,500 From Campaign Funds
    .
    Freshman Democratic representative Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) paid herself tens of thousands of dollars from her campaign's funds during the midterm elections, filings with the Federal Election Commission show.
    .
    Tlaib, who was elected to the House last November, began paying herself on May 7, 2018, from Rashida Tlaib for Congress, her campaign committee, and averaged $4,000 per month outside of August, which included two checks of $3,000 each.
    .
    From May 7 until the general election on Nov. 6, Tlaib paid herself a total of $28,000 in payments from the campaign committee, which first-time candidates are permitted to do up until the day of the general election if they so choose.
    .
    "If the candidate wins the primary election, his or her principal campaign committee may pay him or her a salary from campaign funds through the date of the general election, up to and including the date of any general election runoff," FEC provisions state. "If the candidate loses the primary, withdraws from the race, or otherwise ceases to be a candidate, no salary payments may be paid beyond the date he or she is no longer a candidate."
    .
    An FEC spokesperson said that a candidate can pay themselves after the general election only for activity that occurred up to the day of the election.
    .
    Following the general election, Tlaib cut herself a $2,000 check on Nov. 16 and disbursed $15,500 to herself on Dec. 1, which was well above the average of what she was paying herself during the campaign.
    .
    "On its face, it looks like the $2,000 payment on November 16 might be for the candidate's salary for the first two weeks of November," an election law and government ethics lawyer told the Free Beacon when asked about the payments. "But given that the election occurred on November 6—i.e., part-way through the first November pay period—I am surprised that this last payment wasn't prorated. In other words, Tlaib stopped being a candidate halfway through this period, but it appears that she kept collecting her full salary as if she was still a candidate throughout the full first two weeks of November."
    .
    "The $15,500 payment is interesting. It's not 100% clear what she's doing, but what she may have done is to low ball her earlier payments for political purposes (at $2k), knowing full well that she would make up any difference at the end by giving herself a lump sum payment," the lawyer continued. "That would let her skirt negative publicity, of the sort that Alan Keyes generated when he paid himself a sizable salary. An after-the-fact, lump sum payment cuts against the purpose of the rule, which is to help the candidate pay for daily living expenses while campaigning."
    .
    Tlaib's campaign did not respond to requests for comment on the payments.
    .
    During the campaign, Tlaib said that she had taken a leave of absence from her job at the Sugar Law Center, a Detroit-based economic and social justice organization, and cut her hours down to seven per week. The now-congresswoman was paid $28,712.79 from the law center up until May of last year—when the payments from the campaign started—and collected $42,500 salary in 2017, according to her financial disclosure forms.
    .
    Tlaib also reported a $68,307 salary for a "Leadership in Government Fellowship" in 2017 but did not disclose the name of the organization who provided the funding for the fellowship, as required by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Ethics.
    .
    The Washington Free Beacon reached out to George Soros's spokesperson in December and were provided copies of tax forms for all entities that are run by the liberal billionaire and make up his Open Society network.
    .
    On page 97 of the 321-page tax form for the Open Society Institute, the legal name for the Open Society Foundation, an expenditure of $85,307 is shown to Tlaib for a "leadership in government fellowship," the Free Beacon reported.
    .
    The amount that Soros's group reported paying out to Tlaib on its tax forms, $85,307, differs from the amount Tlaib reported on her financial disclosure—$68,307—for her leadership in government fellowship.
    .
    "Rashida Tlaib was awarded a Leadership in Government fellowship from the Open Society Foundations in the fall of 2016," Jonathan Kaplan, Soros's spokesperson, told the Free Beacon at the time. "Her project: to focus on increasing the civic participation of disenfranchised urban communities of color. When Ms. Tlaib informed us that she was planning to run for Congress, we mutually agreed to suspend her fellowship and no further payments were made."
    .
    Kendra Arnold, the executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, a government watchdog group, said that the payment was "problematic" given that candidates are required to disclose the source of their income.
    .
    "Identify the source by naming the organization, corporation, or other entity making the payment. It is not necessary that individual clients of a business be named, only the business itself," the manual states. Tlaib did not report that it came from Soros's Open Society Foundation.
    .
    Tlaib ultimately collected $225,180 from Soros's organization throughout 2016 and 2017, according to the group's tax forms.

    My Thoughts:
    .
    Isn't that called extorting Campaign Funds and against the law? Hillary misused Campaign Finds and faced a hefty fine although Democrats covered her ass but she was forced to pay that fine to keep it quiet and that shows there is NO ETHICS in the Democrat party.

    Is that what donors were expecting their money to be used for??

    No surprise she has no ethics..

    KAMALA HARRIS COMPLAINS ABOUT EPSTEIN DEAL BUT HAS ONE JUST LIKE IT AS CALIFORNIA AG
    .
    Once again we see that Kamala Harris is nothing more than a hypocrite. She criticized Florida officials who let Jeffrey Epstein walk away with a slap on the wrist, but she has one just as bad when she was the California AG.
    .
    The mayor of San Diego, Mayor Bob Filner, a Democrat was accused of sexually harassing twenty women. He was forced to resign but Harris charged him with only false imprisonment and battery against three women in exchange for a light sentence.
    .
    He was facing five years in prison but served just 3 months of house arrest and was exempted from registering as a sex offender.
    .
    From Fox News
    .
    So rather than spend five years behind bars, Filner got three months of house arrest, three years’ probation, and some loss of his mayoral pension.
    .
    It’s a deal that probably wouldn’t be considered acceptable today, critics said.
    .
    “The cultural change since #MeToo is having an impact of how prosecutors listen to victims now. I think it all comes down to whether we believe women and how seriously we take these allegations. In serious instances, you need serious consequences,” Maya Raghu, director of workplace equality and senior counsel at the National Women’s Law Center, told the Washington Examiner.
    .
    “Powerful people can afford high-profile legal counsel that others don’t have access to. People [such as Filner] know how to leverage the system in their favor.”

    Harris’ campaign remained defiant and said in a statement that the Filner plea deal actually further boosts the California Democrat’s records as a prosecutor.
    .
    “She prosecuted a politician from her own party for sexual harassment, and he pled guilty to a felony,” the campaign’s spokesperson told the outlet.
    .
    “She was broadly praised for taking action, including by the Republican San Diego County district attorney who said it sent ‘a strong message that nobody is above the law, abuse of women won’t be tolerated and victims will be treated with respect.’”

    All 2020 Senate Dems Absent for Vote to Send Humanitarian Relief to Border
    .
    All seven Democrats in the Senate running for president were absent Wednesday for a vote to send $4.6 billion in emergency humanitarian relief to the southern border to help thousands of migrant families and unaccompanied children.
    .
    Less than 24 hours after House Democrats passed a measure Tuesday night, the Republican-controlled Senate rejected it with a 55-37 vote and approved their own measure with overwhelming bipartisan support with a 84-8 vote, according to the Washington Post.
    .
    Republicans and the White House far prefer the Senate measure but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pressing for quick negotiations to merge the bills — promising that Democrats won’t knuckle under to demands to send the Senate bill directly to President Donald Trump without changes.
    .
    The Senate vote sent the must-pass legislation measure back the Democratic-controlled House. Next steps are unclear, but Pelosi quickly dismissed speculation that the Democratic-controlled House will simply accept the Senate measure, which cleared a key committee last week with just one dissenting vote. Asked if the House would pass the Senate bill and send it to Trump, Pelosi said, "No."
    .
    "They passed their bill, we respect that. We passed our bill, we hope they will respect that. And if there’s some improvements that we think can be reconciled," Pelosi said.
    .
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) slammed House Democrats on the floor Wednesday, saying their priorities revolved around "Resistance theater," adding that the Senate "has a better and more bipartisan way forward."
    .
    The 2020 Democratic candidates, which include Sens. Cory Booker (N.J), Kamala Harris (Calif.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Michael Bennet (Colo.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), and Bernie Sanders (Vt.), were all out of town campaigning and preparing for the primary debates happening this week.
    .
    All three of the 2020 House Democrats, who will be participating in this week's debates, were also absent for Tuesday's border vote, according to Politico reporter Sarah Ferris.

    DNC Chair Candidate: My Job Is To Tell White People When To Shut Their Mouths
    .
    The DNC held a forum for candidates hoping to become chairman of the Democratic National Committee on Monday at George Washington University. One candidate, Sally Boynton Brown, the executive director of Idaho's Democratic Party, urged Democrats to provide "training" to teach people to be "sensitive" and "how to shut their mouths if they are white."
    .
    "My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt," Brown said.
    .
    SALLY BOYNTON BROWN: I’m a white woman, I don’t get it...
    .
    My job is to listen and be a voice and shut other white people down when they want to interrupt...
    .
    We pull people in and they are volunteers. They don’t know anything and then we send them out to have conversations with people, hard conversations. We promote them to chair of a party where they have power and they have no clue what they are doing. We have to, at the DNC, provide training. We have to teach them how to communicate, how to be sensitive and how to shut their mouths if they are white. So I think I made my point.

    Video Resurfaces Of Pelosi Saying ‘We Certainly Don’t’ Need More Undocumented
    .
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used to talk an awful lot like President Trump, back in the day.
    .
    In fact, old (…or young?) Pelosi did not care for illegal aliens.
    .
    She even went as far as saying “we certainly don’t” need more of them.
    .
    Pelosi doesn’t get along well with young House Democrats.
    .
    She took a major swipe at AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and another freshman liberal in a way that caught Twitter’s attention.
