    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Supreme Court on Friday blocked lower court rulings ordering Republican legislators in Michigan and Ohio to redraw U.S. congressional maps ahead of the 2020 elections, dealing a blow to Democrats who had argued that the electoral districts were intended to unlawfully diminish their political clout. The justices granted requests from Republican lawmakers in both states to put those decisions on hold, halting further action in the cases and the need to rework electoral district boundaries. The justices did not provide any explanation for their brief orders. The lower courts found that the electoral maps in the...

    A boxing legend who referred to Caucasians as “white devils” and “crackers” along with the leader of a racist anti-Semitic black cult will be honored by the U.S. government if resolutions pending in Congress are enacted by federal lawmakers. The nearly identical measures, recently introduced in the House and Senate, aim to celebrate the “history and contributions of Muslims of the United States” and include controversial candidates that are clearly undeserving of the distinction. Among them are two key figures in the Nation of Islam, a political and religious movement well known for its racially divisive rhetoric. The group’s doctrine...
  • The Left is mainstreaming Palestinian Marxist terrorists

    05/24/2019 7:11:04 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 5 replies
    A disturbing trend of open support for the Palestinian Marxist-Leninist terrorist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, or PFLP, has emerged on the political Left amid rising anti-Semitism that hides behind the label of anti-Zionism. On May 8, San Diego State University English professor Peter C. Herman observed that an email from SDSU's Women's Resource Center included the slogan "From the River to the Sea Palestine Will Be Free," and a photo of Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist Leila Khaled clutching an AK-47. Khaled is famous for hijacking two airliners in 1970. She and...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Thursday called President Donald Trump “deranged, bizarre, incoherent” and “sad” after the president again referred to himself as a “stable genius” amid flaring tensions with Democrat congressional leadership. “There is nothing ‘stable’ or ‘genius’ about these public rants from a president,” Omar wrote on Twitter. “Deranged, bizarre, incoherent, sad … come to mind.”This is far from the first instance in which Omar has attacked the president, suggesting in March that he is sub-human in contrast to former President Barack Obama. She has also called for impeachment proceedings to begin, tweeting this week: “Impeachment is about...

    by Sheri Urban On Tuesday, radical Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) went after HUD Secretary Ben Carson, trying to ridicule him with a tweet supporting one of her fellow freshman Democrat colleagues. But she didn't count on Dr. Carson swift and brutal response that lit up Twitter all day. Carson had a contentious exchange with hard-left Congressman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) during which she insulted him by telling him he was “unqualified” for his job and said he was “carrying the water of what I believe to be one of the most morally bankrupt presidents in our nation’s history.” In...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.,on Tuesday castigated supporters of President Donald Trump by claiming America's problem with ignorance is "pervasive." Omar appeared on the Nation’s "Next Left" podcast with host John Nichols to discuss various issues, including the intelligence of Trump supporters. "So suddenly you’re elected, and you had this teaching moment. It strikes me that, in watching you, you are conscious of teaching moments and of that opportunity to say something that might cause people to think differently about what’s going on," Nichols said. Omar said U.S. voters "have a misconception" about refugees and the process they face getting into...

    Tweets and videos at link. Things got very testy between Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson and House Democrats. Carson received some ridicule in the media for mistaking a housing term for an Oreo cookie. Cortney has more : Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) set the tone by accusing Carson of leading an agency that is "actively causing harm," sentiments that were shared by other Democrats on the panel. "It pains me that your gifted hands are doing the bidding and carrying the water of what I believe to be one of the most morally bankrupt president's history," Rep....

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin sat before the House Financial Services Committee on Wednesday to face a group of Democrats who want President Trump's tax returns. The House Ways and Means Committee recently issued a subpoena for six years of returns, which the administration rejected. Mnuchin's letter to the Democrats concluded that their request "lacks a legitimate legislative purpose." A federal judge upheld the subpoena, but it was perhaps no surprise considering he was appointed by President Obama. Additionally, the chief counsel's office drafted an IRS memo noting that chairmen of congressional committees don't need "a legitimate legislative purpose" for requesting...

    It was unanimous. The House Freedom Caucus formally condemned Rep. Justin Amash's (R-MI) recent call to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump at a Monday meeting. Having read the Robert Mueller report in its entirety, Amash tweeted over the weekend that there were enough questions in there to suggest Trump obstructed justice and engaged in " impeachable conduct ." “It was every single person who totally disagrees with what he says,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said after the Freedom Caucus voted on Amash's Twitter thread. They did not go so far as to vote him out of the conservative caucus,...

    In the aftermath of Rep.

State Rep. Jim Lower announced his candidacy on Sunday. Speaking with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Monday, Lower further explained why he is running against the five-term congressman.

    Videos at link. (Photo by William Chen, via Facebook) Last night hundreds of protesters gathered in Times Square in New York City to call for the removal of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee. The protest was organized by conservative activist Joe Diamond, whose campaign to raise funds for a Times Square billboard was pulled by Facebook soon after they’d raised adequate funds. The Jerusalem Post covered the event: Following the Minnesotan congresswoman’s highly-publicized allegations of antisemitism and statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and...

    Conservative pundit Dan Bongino is calling out anti-Trump Congressman Justin Amash to leave the Republican Party. Amash made recent headlines when he called for President Trump’s impeachment base don the Mueller report, which vindicated him of any collusion with Russia. The Guardian reported that as the only Republican in Congress to call for the impeachment of Donald Trump, Justin Amash is facing his own party’s wrath.In a series of tweets on Saturday, the Michigan congressman said attempts to obstruct justice as outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election amounted to “impeachable conduct”.

    WASHINGTON — Rep. Justin Amash's weekend statement that he believes President Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses sparked mounting GOP criticism Monday of the Michigan congressman's position — and questions about his political future. “Justin’s a friend, but Justin is wrong on this, clearly, and the way he did this is all wrong as well,” said Amash’s fellow Freedom Caucus peer, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., in an interview Monday on Fox News. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Sunday that he believes his GOP colleague is only seeking attention.

    GREENVILLE, Mich. — Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, the first Republican in Congress to accuse President Donald Trump of impeachable conduct, is facing a primary challenge. State Rep. Jim Lower (LOW'-ur) announced Monday he's running for the western Michigan seat. The announcement came two days after Amash sent a series of tweets faulting Trump and Attorney General William Barr over special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The 30-year-old Lower, of Greenville, says he made the announcement earlier than planned after Amash attacked Trump.

    Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan says he enlists social media to do something unusual: explain why he bucks his party in terms his constituents can understand. The 39-year-old Republican, who was the youngest member of the freshman class in 2011, states his approach succinctly: “I defend liberty and explain every vote here.” The simple formula has turned the libertarian, who rode into the House on the tea party wave, into something of a sensation. In 2012, the Independent Voter Network called Amash the “coolest member of Congress.” Amash’s latest decision — to state publicly that President Trump engaged in activity...

    Fox News contributor Dan Bongino believes Rep. Justin Amash should leave the Republican Party after the libertarian lawmaker said President Trump engaged in "impeachable" conduct. Amash, R-Mich., became the first Republican to publicly accuse Trump of engaging in “impeachable conduct” stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's lengthy investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. "Contrary to [Attorney General William] Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment," Amash tweeted, drawing a stinging rebuke from the president. His comments drew a strong rebuke from...

    ROYAL OAK, Mich. — Frank Houston knows something about the longtime estrangement of white men from the Democratic Party. His family roots are in nearby Macomb County, the symbolic home of working-class Reagan Democrats who, distressed by economic and social tumult, decided a liberal Democratic Party had left them, not the other way around. Mr. Houston grew up in the 1980s liking Ronald Reagan but idolizing Alex P. Keaton, the fictional Republican teenage son of former hippies who, played by Michael J. Fox on the television series “Family Ties,” comically captured the nation’s conservative shift. But over time, Mr. Houston...

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, acknowledged that while he has called out Trump when he's deemed it appropriate, he does not believe the Mueller report provided evidence that supports impeaching the president.
