    In a story unearthed by U.S. Liberty Wire , citing a deep-weeds Minnesota state political news site , here's some new information on the decisionmaking of Minnesota leftist Democrat and House Foreign Affairs committee member, Rep. Ilhan Omar, dating from her days in the Minnesota statehouse: On Thursday, members of the Minnesota House voted to pass H.F. 1397, a bill which would give life insurance companies the right to deny payouts to beneficiaries whose loved one died while committing an act of terrorism. In a bipartisan effort, Republicans and Democrats joined together to pass the bill 127-2. Reps. Ilhan Omar...

    This should come as a surprise to no one, except perhaps Minnesotans. Or should I say, " Minnesotans "? More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country. FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far...
  • Adam Schiff makes no apologies for investigating Trump, says mission different than Mueller's

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Sunday said he doesn’t think his decision to restart and expand the Russian-meddling investigation conflicts with special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe. “We have a separate and an independent and important responsibility and that is to tell the country what happened. Mueller, ultimately, his job is to determine who broke the law, and who should go to jail,” Mr. Schiff told NBC’s Meet the Press. The California Democrat also said Mr. Trump’s pick for attorney general, William Barr, hasn’t given enough assurance that Mr. Mueller’s evidence of potential wrongdoing will be disclosed to...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., tore into House Democrats on Friday for what he alleged was a lack of action against Democratic freshman lawmakers for alleged anti-Semitic remarks they made in recent weeks, comparing the situation to what the country experienced during World War II. Two lawmakers, Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., have come under fire for controversial comments. Tlaib, last month, questioned if Senate Republicans were more loyal to Israel than the United States. Following a report that GOP leaders were planning to introduce a bill that would punish companies that participate in the so-called...

    Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker stunned onlookers and lawmakers during an already-contentious House hearing Friday, when he tried to call time on the Democratic chairman after yet another line of questioning regarding Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. The retort came after Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., first said he wanted Whitaker to appear for a private deposition after the hearing and went on to ask Whitaker whether he had been “asked to approve any requests or action” for the special counsel. “Mr. Chairman, I see that your five minutes is up, so…” Whitaker replied as the hearing room broke out...

    After a tense back-and-forth between congressional Democrats and the Justice Department, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler and the DOJ announced Thursday evening that Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, likely in his final days as the country's chief law enforcement officer, will appear Friday as scheduled before the panel. House Democrats had threatened to subpoena Whitaker's testimony about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, and in response, Whitaker -- who previously had agreed to testify -- warned that he wouldn't show up unless lawmakers dropped the ultimatum he described as "political theater." In a letter to Whitaker late Thursday, Nadler,...

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s (D-N.Y.) decision not to allow him to testify during a hearing on gun violence Wednesday may have helped amplify his message on the subject. Scalise — who sustained life-threatening injuries after being shot during practice for the congressional baseball game in 2017 — alleged by not allowing him to testify, Nadler “broke from tradition” by denying “a member who had a relevant testimony to give.” But the Louisiana Republican said the media attention gained from the incident provided him with a wider platform to discuss his view....

    Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing Wednesday on new gun control legislation Democrats plan to push on the American people. The top Republican on the committee, Doug Collins, R-Ga., asked committee Democrats if I could testify about this legislation in an appropriate setting to offer another perspective as both a survivor of a shooting attack and strong supporter of our Second Amendment rights. But the Democrats said no. While liberals may try to silence conservative voices, I will not be silenced. The American people deserve to hear all perspectives. Here is the testimony I planned to give:...

    2 minute video. Ilhan Omar, the newly elected Somali Muslim congresswoman from Minnesota, dishes up such a relentless onslaught of hate, ignorance, and lies that it's hard to keep up. But one must try. Because she's the new face of the Democratic Party and her toxic views portend bad things to come. Most recently, Omar was interviewed by a ridiculously nervous woman from the left-wing Center for American Progress (founded by John Podesta, later chair of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign). The interviewer asked Omar what she's learned about anti-Semitism after presumably engaging in debates in an effort to have...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has come under fire for anti-Semitic comments in the past. During an interview with on "The Daily Show," Omar explained how she never tried to be anti-Semitic but she understands how her comments could be deemed anti-Semitic. The most interesting aspect: Omar compares her being blind to her anti-Semitism to white people who don't understand they have "white privilege." There are so many things wrong with this interaction. 1) If Omar was truly interested in learning how to change her ways and her thinking, she would come out and say, "I'm an anti-Semite but I...

    The House Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday voted to keep "so help you God" in the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, a day after Republicans denounced an apparent effort to strike the language. A draft of a new committee rules package obtained exclusively by Fox News this week indicated the committee planned to omit the phrase from the oath "Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?" But on Wednesday, the committee voted to keep...

    The U.S. government is tracking three separate migrant caravans, one of them estimated to be more than 12,000 people in size, heading north toward the U.S., a top Pentagon official said Tuesday. Defense Undersecretary for Policy John Rood told Congress that those caravans are one reason why the presence of active-duty troops is still needed on the U.S.-Mexico border. He also said military medical personnel are helping with the latest border problem, dealing with an increase in sick migrants showing up at the border and in need of immediate attention. Some 2,300 active-duty troops are still on the border, down...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday blasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi for canceling a Friday session of Congress and giving members a “three-day weekend,” after yet another failed attempt on Capitol Hill to pass bipartisan legislation to re-open the government amid the longest shutdown in U.S. history. Friday will mark the 35th day of the partial government shutdown and the second missed paycheck for more than 800,000 federal workers and contractors working, or furloughed, without pay “People are going into their second week of not getting their paycheck,” McCarthy said on Fox News' “The Daily Briefing” on Thursday. “Speaker Pelosi...

    Minnesota Democrat criticized for anti-Israel statements, BDS supportHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hit with a backlash over her decision to assign freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, despite the Minnesota Democrat’s record of anti-Israel advocacy. The House Republican leadership blasted the decision, citing Ms. Omar’s 2012 tweet saying that Israel had “hypnotized the world” and was guilty of “evil doings,” as well as her support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. “It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a...

    It appears that the leadership of the Democratic Party has gone completely anti-Israel and is warming up to Jew-hatred. The appointment of Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee – and the welcome extended to her by the chairman, (former) Israel-supporter Rep. Eliot Engel – confirms that the Democrats' big tent now extends to those who believe that Jews in Israel wield magical power to "hypnotize" non-Jews into acquiescence to their "evil." Omar was triumphant yesterday on her appointment to the plum committee: Ilhan Omar ✔@IlhanMN I finally have committee assignments and I am excited 1st choice- House...

    Nancy Pelosi is now looking for revenge against Democrats who worked to keep her from regaining the speakership, POLITICO reported. Her primary target was Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY), who lead the charge against Pelosi. During a closed-door meeting on Tuesday night, Pelosi made it clear she didn't want Rice to serve on the prestigious Judiciary Committee. The entire New York delegation reportedly came to Rice's defense, arguing that she has the most seniority and her background as a former prosecutor made her more than qualified for the position. Pelosi recommended several freshman over Rice, saying there were already enough...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is slated to join the committee leading the House's oversight of U.S banks, lenders and financial markets. Ocasio-Cortez has been recommended by Democratic leaders for a spot on the House Financial Services Committee, a Democratic source told The Hill on Tuesday. The full roster of Democrats joining the committee is expected to be released as soon as Tuesday night. Ocasio-Cortez told Hill.TV in November that she has expressed interest in the Financial Services panel to the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, which doles out seats on House committees. Politico reported last week that Ocasio-Cortez was "poised...

    Less than a week after issuing a profanity-infused call to impeach President Trump on her first day in office, Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib is under fire from Republican politicians and commentators for openly posting what they call an anti-Semitic slur on Twitter. Top Republicans in the Senate are also alleging that Democratic leaders are hoping to hide the fact that Tlaib is just one of many new Democratic politicians in Congress who harbor deeply anti-Israel views. Tlaib, responding to post by Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday, suggested that Senate Republicans were more loyal to Israel than the...
