    vangelical leader Laurie Cardoza-Moore hand-delivered letters and petitions containing "tens-of-thousands" of signatures to Capitol Hill in order to remove Ilhan Omar from Congress, demanding a full investigation into Omar's connections with the Muslim Brotherhood. Cardoza-Moore met with a number of Washington lawmakers this week, in addition to Nancy Pelosi and Attorney-General William Barr to forward her agenda to remove Omar and affiliated antisemitic and anti-American parties from Congress. “Ilhan Omar is a self-professed antisemite and a danger to our great country. She is making a mockery of all Americans by sitting in the House of Representatives while publicly raising money...
  • Steny Hoyer Has Had it With These Freshman Dems

    Let's call them the infamous three. Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are the trio of freshman lawmakers who have dominated the political news cycle this year. Whether it's Tlaib calling the president a "motherf***er," Omar spewing some anti-Israel musings, or Ocasio-Cortez promoting whatever her latest radical progressive policy is (Green New Deal, capitalism sucks, etc.), the media just can't get enough. That's a shame, according to Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), because, as he puts it, they are hogging the limelight from the other 59 deserving Democratic newbies. Hoyer slams Tlaib, Omar, Ocasio-Cortez when asked...
  • Speaker Pelosi Revokes Vice President Pence's House Office Space

    Speaker Pelosi Revokes Vice President Pence's House Office Space March 12, 20191:40 PM ET Susan Davis The speaker giveth, and the speaker taketh away. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has reclaimed office space her predecessor, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., awarded to Vice President Pence. Republicans gave Pence, a former House member, a first-floor bonus office in the U.S. Capitol shortly after President Trump was inaugurated in 2017. The vice president rarely used the space, but it was a symbolic gesture of the warm relationship Pence enjoyed with Ryan and the House GOP. The vice president serves as the president of...

    Don Trump Jr. stated that he believes Jerry Nadler should recuse himself from all investigations pertaining to Russia, after Nadler’s deep Russian ties were exposed. Nadler, the Democrat congressman, is leading the subpoena charge against President Trump in spite of national outrage over Nadler’s son’s work for Gibson Dunn, which is suing Trump on behalf of private clients — a clear and actionable conflict of interest. Wow. Someone should investigate where that money is going after it’s collected by the Russian agent. And Nadler should recuse himself from any Russia investigations pending review.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - When President Donald Trump proposes his 2020 federal budget on Monday, official Washington will likely have a quick look, shrug and move on, marking another stage in the quiet decay of the U.S. government’s traditional policy-making processes. There was a time when the release of the president’s budget was a red-letter day on the calendar of Washington wonkery, with policy experts and fiscal hawks delving into spreadsheets and expounding upon new spending plans and the national debt. But the hoopla of budget day is gone, a relic of a time when politics were less polarized, the federal...

    A restive group of newcomers. Baffled party leaders. Fiery conversations behind closed doors that spill into public view and threaten to upend legislation. After a wrenching week for Democrats, it’s hard not to wonder: Does Speaker Nancy Pelosi have a tea party problem? Emboldened by their ability to seize the spotlight and shape the national debate, a core group of high-profile freshmen Democrats are driving an agenda that could define the party for years to come. Much like the tea party conservatives who vaulted Republicans to power a decade ago, these Democrats’ firm ideology and wait-for-no-one swagger have set off...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) slammed House Democrats on Thursday over a "sham" House resolution vote condemning hate, saying that the vote avoided condemning Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) anti-Semitic remarks. "Today’s resolution vote was a sham put forward by Democrats to avoid condemning one of their own and denouncing vile anti-Semitism," Cheney wrote in a statement provided to The Daily Wire. "While I stand whole heartedly against discrimination outlined in this resolution, the language before the House today did not address the issue that is front and center." "After several days of infighting and a near-rebellion by rank-and-file Democrats, as well...

    House Republicans’ use of a century-old legislative procedure that helps the minority party alter or oppose measures advanced by the majority has exposed significant divisions among Democrats. Now some House Democrats want to do away with the procedure, called a motion to recommit. It allows a lawmaker in the minority to move that a bill be sent back to a committee for a particular reason. In a letter to Pelosi and three other Democrat leaders, 17 freshman Democrats ask them to “end abuse of the MTR,” referring to the motion to recommit. The two freshmen, Reps. Chrissy Houlahan of Pennsylvania...

    An ex-adviser to President Trump has signaled he and as many as four others will not cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee's sweeping demand for documents. Michael Caputo, a former aide with the campaign who will be interviewed on Fox News’ “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” on Wednesday afternoon, has already told the committee he does not have any relevant records and that he “does not plan to testify in front of the panel,” according to the Washington Post. Caputo has also started off talks with four other people linked to the president who received a request from the...

    On the heels of an expanded investigation brought by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., famed attorney Alan Dershowitz warned Tuesday that House Democrats may have gone “too far” and could face lawsuits for allegedly abusing their oversight powers. “Congress has a legitimate oversight function to perform but it has to make sure it doesn’t go too far. It can’t use that oversight function, which is really designed to help get legislation, in order to really prevent a president from finishing out his terms and acting. They’re interfering with the executive branch if they do so,” Dershowitz said on...

    Allegheny County officials are pledging to improve security with its real estate website after a Penn Hills family said a man sharing the same name was able to change the owner's address. Real estate records show Sylvester Ward bought his house on Vantine Street in 2008. Another man, also named Sylvester Ward, in North Carolina was able to change the owner's address on the property through the county's real estate office. That change allowed the house to be listed for sale on Zillow and other real estate websites, even though the Ward family wasn't interested in selling. "Everything you have...

    House Republicans are driving Democrats crazy, and driving a major wedge through the majority party. GOPers are using a garden-variety procedural tool to goad Democrats into taking challenging votes on the floor – and risking the defeat or alteration of legislation which is on the verge of passing. The parliamentary gambit is called the "Motion to Recommit," or MTR as it’s known in congressional shorthand. MTR's must be "germane" and tied directly to the legislation at hand. In short, an MTR can't deal with cats if the bill deals with dogs.

Ilhan Omar, whose previous comments on Israel were condemned as anti-Semitic just weeks ago by senior members of her own party, is again under fire for suggesting Wednesday night that some politicians in Washington are "pushing for allegiance" to Israel. Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who was seated next to Omar during her comments, made a similar remark in January, writing on Twitter that Senate Republicans were more loyal to Israel than...

    A surprise Republican win in the House on a procedural vote Wednesday exposed divisions within the Democratic leadership, set off recriminations and underscored that the party is still adjusting to its new majority. GOP leaders used one of the few tools available to the House minority to amend a Democratic gun-control bill, adding a provision that would require notification to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement when undocumented immigrants try to buy guns. Twenty-six Democrats joined Republicans on the vote, an embarrassing setback for party leaders who had carefully screened amendments to keep GOP fingerprints off a high-profile bill. While the...

    A former Trump campaign adviser said on MSNBC that he believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller will give the House of Representatives a "roadmap" for impeaching President Trump. “I can’t imagine that the special counsel is not going to release something that shows a roadmap for the House to investigate a conspiracy,” Sam Nunberg said Thursday. When host Katy Tur asked if he meant a roadmap for impeachment, Nunberg answered affirmatively. "Correct, for articles of impeachment,” he said.

CAIR has a long history of affiliation with the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. CAIR members have often defended the actions of Hamas in Gaza. Further, FBI investigators uncovered evidence establishing CAIR's place in the "Palestine Committee," which was a Muslim Brotherhood-created network aimed at helping Hamas in the United States, according to a report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. In 2009, US District Court Judge Jorge Solis ruled that there...

    The Democrats swept to power in Congress by campaigning in a way that has been successful for Democrats for generations. “Republicans will take away your health care,” they said, after having focus-grouped it. Now we are preparing for a 2020 campaign in which Donald Trump and Republicans can as easily advertise to the public: “Democrats will take away cows, and your car.” What happened to Democrats? Back in November, it looked like Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic House caucus had found the perfect plan for their party in the era of Trump: Avoid talking about impeachment and stick to simple...
