Democrats Can’t Agree to Condemn Bigotry After Ilhan Omar’s Follies

Hate has no place in America, the land of freedom and equality. If the democrats can’t recognize that, maybe they don’t belong either.

The democratic Civil War may be fully upon us now, just months away from the prime chronological real estate of the 2020 election.

Washington DC is in the throes of utter chaos at the moment.  While that may not seem like something new, the variety of ill-will on Capitol Hill has never been more worrisome.

In particular, a strong and pungent whiff of anti-semitism seems to be percolating within the democratic party, with freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar having, on several occasions, used bigoted, Jewish stereotypes to disparage Israel and her people.  You would think that this would be a simple incident for the democrats to rally around, and unite in their condemnation of, but quite the opposite seems to be occurring.

Tensions ran high at a caucus meeting Wednesday as some Democrats privately vented that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team had failed to adequately respond to the escalating political crisis, with too little outreach to their own rank and file.

Freshman Rep. Jahana Hayes of Connecticut stood up and confronted Pelosi directly, arguing that she shouldn’t have to learn about the official Democratic Caucus response from MSNBC. Hayes said she now has to vote on a resolution that she’s barely read, without a private briefing from leadership, according to five sources.

Saying no to bigotry and hate should never be this difficult.

Pelosi countered that the Democratic measure to condemn anti-Semitism is not final, though text had been circulating and a vote had been tentatively planned for Wednesday. That vote was postponed amid a last-minute backlash from progressives in the caucus.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) later told reporters that leadership hadn’t decided whether a vote on the resolution would take place this week, adding, “We’re working on language.“

Pelosi also said Democratic leaders were forced to respond quickly over the weekend — a task made trickier with Omar on a congressional delegation trip to East Africa over the weekend.

Madame House Speaker isn’t making things any easier.

As Hayes was then talking to another member, Pelosi said, “Well if you’re not going to listen to me, I’m done talking,” then set down the microphone and walked out of the room, the sources said.

Hate has no place in America, the land of freedom and equality.

If the democrats can’t recognize that, maybe they don’t belong either.

Michael Avenatti’s Troubles are Far From Over Says Famous Former Client

Michael Avenatti

Yesterday was a bad day for celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti. Actually, that’s a bit of an understatement.  Yesterday was a terrible day for Michael Avenatti. The man famously nicknamed “creepy porn lawyer” by Tucker Carlson was hit with two separate sets of charges, on each coast of this beautiful nation, stemming from illegal activities in which he attempted to “shake down” Nike. Now, Avenatti’s most famous client to date, Stormy Daniels, wants the world to know that this may very well be only the tip of the iceberg of her former lawyer’s sins. https://twitter.com/StormyDaniels/status/1110240069619572738 Avenatti had done a poor job in recent months of reversing any stereotypes that people may have concerning lawyers, that’s for certain. In a statement yesterday, Avenatti was brief and terse, spending much of his time behind the microphone thanking the authorities involved for their professionalism.

Dems and Trump Agree: Release As Much of The Mueller Report as Possible

When Trump and the democrats agree on something, but Mitch McConnell doesn’t, where do we go from here?

It isn’t very often that you’ll find Donald Trump and  a majority of the democratic party on the same page…especially in regard to the Russian “collusion” conspiracy theory. For nearly two years the democrats, along with their lapdogs in the “infotainment” industry, had already precluded that Donald Trump was some sort of Russian double agent, handpicked by the Kremlin to rise to the highest office in the land in order to do Vladimir Putin’s bidding. Yes, it was absurd, and yes, we’re glad that Robert Mueller sorted that out for us. Now, the democrats, the American people, and Donald Trump all seem to agree:  Show us the report. The republicans, on the other hand, seem hesitant. House Democrats pressed the Justice Department to provide the full report from special counsel Robert Mueller even as Republicans gleefully called for them to “move on” from the Russia investigation . President Donald Trump accused those responsible for launching Mueller’s probe of “treasonous things against our country” and said they “certainly will be looked into.” Trump said the release of Mueller’s full report “wouldn’t bother me at all,” and Democrats quickly put that statement to the test, demanding that his administration hand over the entire document and not just Sunday’s four-page summary from Attorney General William Barr. The President has said on several occasions that releasing the entire report would be amenable to him, as he maintains his innocence in the matter. Mitch McConnell yesterday struck down an attempt to make the entire report public – a move that has raised some eyebrows among Trump supporters and other conservatives.
