Israel Finally Grants Rashida Tlaib’s Request To Visit The Country. Her Response Speaks Volumes

This woman is unbearable.

Published

Just hours after Israel finally granted Rep. Rashida Tlaib her request to come and visit family she has in the country, she turns around and declines the offer.

Why?

Well, the answer should be pretty darn obvious. The whole thing was nothing more than a political ploy to buy her some favor with the left and further paint Israel and Jews to be the bad guys, a game she’s playing with her buddies in “The Squad” from the very beginning of her time in office.

“My sity wanted to pick figs [with] me. I broke down reading this [and] worry every single day after I won for my family’s safety,” Tlaib said in a series of tweets. “My cousin was texting me which photo of [Omar] & I they should put on a welcoming poster when I heard the news. I couldn’t tell her.”

“When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions,” she continued. “I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me [and] use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive [and] racist policies.”

The Israeli government initially blocked Tlaib from visiting the country citing her vocal support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish the Jewish State by politically and economically starving the country.

The Anti-Defamation League considers BDS to be the most “prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence,” and given Tlaib’s vocal support of this effort, it’s not a surprise the people of Israel would be hesitant to let her come into the country.

In 2017, Israeli Knesset passed an anti-BDS law that blocks those who are foreign activists from entering the nation. With Tlaib’s support of BDM, that makes her a foreign activist.

After the country announced they would be barring Tlaib from coming over, she filed a humanitarian request to come and visit her grandmother. As part of the request she promised not to participate in any boycotts against Israel while she was visiting.

Interior Minister Ayre Deri granted her request, but then Tlaib turned it down.

“Silencing me [and] treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in – fighting against racism, oppression [and] injustice,” Tlaib said.

In other words, this was likely a political scheme and nothing more. If this were really about going to see her grandmother she’d already be over there spending time with her. But as you can see, that’s not the case.

Or, maybe her grandmother means less to her than a political cause? Either way this says way more about Tlaib than it does Israel.

Winning the New Civil War (OPINION)

An excellent opinion piece…

Published

on

The American Civil War of 1861-65 is considered the first “modern” war. Both sides used advances in communications and military technology that resulted in 600,000 deaths. Now, more than 150 years later, Americans are engaged in a new civil war. This time it is not a war of armies and weapons and regional animosity—it is a war of visions. Liberals and conservatives each have a different vision for the future of the nation. Conservatives believe in the Constitution and the rule of law. The vision of “progressive” liberals is an authoritarian socialist nation run by unaccountable bureaucrats—an approximation of Venezuela, somewhere between Stalin’s Soviet Union and Orwell’s 1984. The conflict over these value systems has escalated into the new civil war. We have many strong indications that this is a hot war: the depredations of Antifa, a contemporary incarnation of Nazi brown shirts; Maxine Waters urging liberals to confront Trump supporters; mobs threatening the homes of prominent conservatives; the attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh; and the attempted impeachment of President Trump by partisan Democrats in the House. The war began when Barack Obama was elected president. After promising just the opposite, the Obama presidency played into the leftist strategy of “divide and conquer.” The fraud known as identity politics was a child of the Obama years. Using their perverted version of “diversity,” the Democratic Party—under the leadership of Obama—exploited discontented elements in American society to foment division and hatred. Obama’s comments in case after case—lies and distortions—stoked the fires of racial discord. After eight years of Obama, relations between conservatives and liberals were worse than ever and the country was plunged into darkness. This new civil war is much more intimate than the old one. Instead of North pitted against South, we have friend against friend, neighbor against neighbor, brother…

Congress to Take Action Against ABC News for Covering Up Epstein Story [Developing]

Is the GOP growing a spine?

Here’s something you probably didn’t expect to see today. It could potentially be great news for America, too! Apparently, Congressional Republicans have finally grown a spine and have decided to do something about corruption within the mainstream media. At the very least, it could be a solid start. There’s no reason ABC News should’ve covered-up a bombshell story they had on Jeffrey Epstein years ago. But they did it. Why? Because disgraced former President Bill Clinton was involved? Hmm… There’s also no reason for uninformed Americans to remain uninformed Americans. But if ABC and all other left-leaning outlets continue to hide the truth and bury the facts, then Democrats will continue to win elections. And who is that helping, exactly? From ABC News: Megyn Kelly reported on Sunday night that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has contacted the president of ABC News and is demanding that the network answer questions about why it killed a bombshell story three years ago on convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that involved former Democratic President Bill Clinton. The news comes after James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exclusively reported last month on leaked video footage from inside ABC News that showed anchor Amy Robach admitting that the network had the scandal on Epstein three years ago but that the network spiked it. “Then the Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about #PrinceAndrew…threatened us in a million different ways. We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will…That also quashed the story.” – @arobach #EpsteinCoverup https://twitter.com/JamesOKeefeIII/status/1195741556390666242?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1195741556390666242&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ffeminist-chrissy-teigen-calls-republican-rep-elise-stefanik-trash All signs pointed to Epstein being murdered in his jail cell. The writing was on the wall. Everyone could see it. Someone more powerful than he needed to make sure he kept his mouth shut and didn’t sing. It’s that simple. A…
