Bernie Sanders Virtue Signals on Behalf of Anti-Semitic Representative Ilhan Omar

Jewish-born Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wants America to know that he stands with anti-Semitic Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), saying, “We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters.” Sanders is, of course, more known for his very high-profile support of anti-Semites, including the anti-Semite British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. He has on more than one occasion also made clear that the “occupation” of Israel on the “Palestinian territories” “runs contrary to fundamental American values.” With friends like Sanders, who needs any enemies?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Sen. Bernie Sanders, who was born Jewish but who has attacked Israel for years, called anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Tuesday to offer his support, reportedly saying, “We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters.”

As reported by Jewish Insider, and confirmed by The Daily Beast, Sanders spoke with Omar. The Daily Beast reported:

Omar’s office confirmed that the congresswoman spoke with Sanders—who is Jewish—but the conversation was off-record and so they could not go into further details about the contents of the discussion. A source familiar with the conversation confirmed to The Daily Beast that Sanders expressed support for Omar.

The Daily Beast noted that Jewish Insider had stated Sanders had discussed Omar’s anti-Semitic tweets on a conference call hosted by James Zogby. The Daily Beast added, “Zogby told The Daily Beast the call was off-record when contacted about the veracity of the reporting, but the source familiar with the lawmakers’ conversation confirmed the Jewish Insider story.”

Georgetown Students Vote to Tax Themselves for Slavery Reparations

More than 180 years ago, Georgetown University sold 272 slaves. Starting in the fall of 2020, the Georgetown student government body wants students to establish a fund for the descendants of these slaves with a $27.20 fee per student each semester of attendance. It passed in a 20-4 vote. Students receiving financial aid will have the option to opt out if the measure takes effect after a campuswide vote in April. This is what we call redistributive justice: those who did not sin paying for the sins of their ancestors.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Students at Georgetown University are considering paying reparations for slaves that Georgetown University sold more than 180 years ago.

Earlier this month, the Georgetown student government authorized a campus-wide student referendum that will ask students to establish a fund for the descendants of these 272 slaves. If the referendum passes, a fee would be collected each semester, starting in the fall of 2020.

The semesterly fee proposed is $27.20 per student “in honor of the 272 people sold by Georgetown,” according to the student government resolution approving the referendum, obtained by the College Fix.

Students receiving financial aid will be able to opt out of the reparations payments, according to student news outlet the Hoya.

House GOP Reintroduces Born-Alive Act

Missouri Republican Representative Ann Wagner reintroduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to protect babies born alive after failed abortions with the same mandatory medical care and legal protection as that of any wanted newborn baby. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has asked for unanimous consent for the bill’s consideration. Republican Whip Steve Scalise (LA) is bringing a resolution that will force a House vote after 30 legislative days if the bill fails to move otherwise. “Innocent life must be defended and protected at every stage, and that includes babies born alive during an abortion,” said Scalise. “We must immediately extend legal protections to these vulnerable newborns and prosecute any doctor who would leave them to die.” The stark contrast between the two major parties on innocent life in the U.S. is now complete.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Missouri Republican Rep. Ann Wagner re-introduced a bill Wednesday that would protect babies born alive after abortion from infanticide.

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) asked for unanimous consent for the House to consider the bill.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would ensure any infant born alive following an abortion receives the same medical care and protection the law gives any newborn baby.

Republican Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana – who originally co-sponsored the legislation when it was introduced previously – will bring a resolution that provides for floor consideration of Wagner’s bill. The two Republicans would force a vote in the House after 30 legislative days if no action is taken.

Warren Culturally Appropriated Listed Heritage on State Bar Exam

By now you’ve probably seen Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s claim of American Indian heritage on her application for the State Bar of Texas. “Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it,” The Washington Post reported. “Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.” WashPo further notes that the card “coincided with her first listing as a ‘minority’ by the Association of American Law Schools.” Exactly how this detail remained a secret since 1986 despite her tenure as a Senator suggests an inside job from the DNC. Apparently the powers that be want her out of the picture. But it should be clear Fauxcahontas had already damaged herself beyond repair. This will probably be the nail in her electoral coffin.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claimed American Indian ancestry in her application for the State Bar of Texas, according to a new report documenting the previously undisclosed example of Warren claiming American Indian ancestry.

The Post notes that this latest revelation is likely to cause problems for Warren because Democrats “want a nominee who can move beyond any problems in their past and present a strong challenge to President Trump.”

“The Texas bar registration card is significant, among other reasons, because it removes any doubt that Warren directly claimed the identity,” the Post added. “In other instances, Warren has declined to say whether she or an assistant filled out forms.”

Senate Dems Block Bill to Protect Babies Surviving Abortion

As if the Democrats’ agenda weren’t already approaching the worship of Moloch, Senate Democrats have blocked legislation to protect babies surviving abortion procedures. Led by Washington Senator Patty Murray, Democrats in the upper chamber blocked the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act (S.130), which would require that babies born alive during abortion receive reasonable medical care and transportation to a hospital. Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE), who sponsored the bill, asked his colleagues to pass the bill by unanimous consent. It was blocked instead without even getting a vote. “Senate Democrats had the chance today to prove they are not the party of infanticide and instead they doubled down on extremism,” blasted Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser. Democrats: because infanticide is just peachy.

Senate Democrats – led by Washington Sen. Patty Murray – blocked a bill that would require babies born alive during abortion to receive reasonable medical care and transport to a hospital.

Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) to protect babies who have survived failed abortions. Sasse went to the floor of the Senate Monday to ask his colleagues to pass the bill by unanimous consent, but Democrats objected.

Referencing the recent firestorm created by the Virginia bill known as the Repeal Act, introduced by Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran and supported by Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, Sasse said:

This place fancies itself the world’s greatest deliberative body, but we would be deceiving ourselves if we ignored the biggest debate that’s been happening in America over the last 36 hours.

Kamala Harris: 20-Week Abortion Ban “Immoral”

California Senator Kamala Harris (D) is adding to her far Left 2020 presidential campaign platform. The former prosecutor now wants healthcare for all… so long as it’s before 20 weeks gestation. In the wake of the third trimester abortion “reproductive justice” wave sweeping the nation, Harris contends that banning abortions at five months into a pregnancy is “immoral.” Harris tweeted: “The GOP has scheduled a vote on a 20-week abortion ban on Monday. Add your name to demand Congress votes down this immoral bill.” Memo to Harris: Does not a 20-week beating heart also deserve healthcare?

Here’s more from The Blaze…

Harris’ vision for the country is “frightening” to anyone who is not a socialist. Harris wants to implement her vision of socialized / single payer health care, she wants government funded abortions, she would abolish ICE, and her plan would offer free college to everyone.

In a tweet, Harris called a ban on abortion after 20 weeks “immoral.”

Sasse Challenges Senate on Infanticide Support

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) drew a big, fat red line on the floor of the U.S. Senate Thursday when he asked all 99 of his fellow senators to stand on the floor and state whether they are for or against infanticide. Sasse gave them heads up, saying: “On Monday, I’m going to ask all 100 Senators to come to the floor and be against infanticide. This shouldn’t be complicated.” Sasse is also taking concrete legislative steps to address the recent flurry of third-term and post-birth abortion legislation across America. He’s using Rule 14 to expedite consideration of his bill “the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.” Sasse is boldly calling for a vote to pass the bill with unanimous consent as soon as next week. This should smoke out some Democrats on the issue, particularly those running for president. Stay tuned…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Thursday, speaking on the Senate floor, Senator Ben Sasse (R-NB) threw down the gauntlet to his 99 fellow senators, informing them, “On Monday, I’m going to ask all 100 senators to come to the floor and be against infanticide. This shouldn’t be complicated.”

As Alexandra DeSanctis reports at National Review, Sasse “announced that he is starting a dual-track process for the Senate to consider his legislation, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, in light of Virginia governor Ralph Northam’s recent comments about late-term abortion legislation in his state. Sasse is using the Rule 14 process to expedite consideration of the bill, as well as calling for a vote to pass the bill under unanimous consent on the Senate floor next week.”

Sasse quoted the incendiary comments made this week by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who intimated that even if a baby is born alive, a mother in his state could still opt to let the baby die. Sasse pointed out that Northam, despite huge outrage precipitated by his remarks, doubled down on Thursday.

Post-Birth Abortion Backlash Slams VA Governor Northam

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) is facing national fury after his comments supporting not only third-trimester abortions but POST-birth abortion went viral. Northam’s office is now pushing back on critics, claiming his comments supporting letting a newborn die in the name of “reproductive justice” were taken out of context. The key phrase of his interview was that abortions would be done with “the consent of obviously the mother, with consent of the physician, multiple physicians by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities or there may be a fetus that’s not viable.” Northam’s communications director has since retaliated, arguing that critics are “trying to play politics with women’s health.” Memo to Northam: words mean things. You should resign, sir.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam came under fire Wednesday after he waded into the fight over a controversial abortion bill that one sponsor said could allow women to terminate a pregnancy up until the moment before birth — with critics saying Northam indicated a child could be killed after birth.

Northam, whose office is now pushing back on those claims, appeared on WTOP to discuss The Repeal Act, which seeks to repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions. Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran, one of the sponsors, sparked outrage from conservatives when she was asked at a hearing if a woman about to give birth and dilating could still request an abortion. The bill was tabled in committee this week.

“My bill would allow that, yes,” she said.

Northam, a former pediatric neurologist, was asked about those comments and said he couldn’t speak for Tran, but said that third-trimester abortions are done with “the consent of obviously the mother, with consent of the physician, multiple physicians by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities or there may be a fetus that’s not viable.”

“Moderate” VA Governor Endorses Infanticide

Self-proclaimed “moderate” Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is paving the way for Medicare for all death panels to cut healthcare costs with his “pro-choice” stance that a woman who has just given birth gets to decide whether or not her newborn baby lives. During an Ask The Governor segment on WTOP, Northam endorsed proposed legislation from his party that would even allow a woman in labor to choose abortion. Of course, he couched his brazen eugenics in “sympathetic” terms, such as in the case of a newborn or an about to be born baby with “deformities.” Similar legislation has already passed in New York, and Rhode Island is considering following suit as well. All of which sets up a massive constitutional battle in the Supreme Court soon.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Wednesday, in a shocking revelation about the nature of the pro-abortion Democratic Party, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a supposed moderate, endorsed the notion that a woman should be able to let an infant, born alive, die on the table if she decided she did not want the child.

Appearing on WTOP’s Ask The Governor, Northam was asked whether he supported a Virginia legislator’s statement that Virginia Democrats’ proposed legislation would permit abortion for a woman in labor. He stated:

This is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians, and the mothers and fathers that are involved. When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of the mother, with the consent of physicians, more than one physician by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus which is non-viable.

Iran Nuclear Chief Confirms Iran Violated Nuke Deal

Surprising precisely no one, Ali Akbar Salehi, Iran’s nuclear chief, confirmed on Iranian state media that the terrorist state flagrantly violated Barack Obama’s “nuclear deal,” even using Photoshop to fudge the evidence. According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translation of the report, this was accomplished by secretly buying replacements and using Photoshop to fake “proof” of destroyed infrastructure. Salehi, of course, spun the duplicity not as one of strategic necessity but rather that the evil United States would renege. “The leader warned us that they were violators of agreements,” Salehi said. “We had to act wisely. Not only did we avoid destroying the bridges that we had built, but we also built new bridges that would enable us to go back faster if needed.” Thanks for that strategic move, Barry!

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

In yet another confirmation of Iran’s blatant violation of the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which is committed to translating into English otherwise-hidden primary source material from the Arab and Muslim world, has reported that the terrorist regime in Tehran secretly purchased replacements for its nuclear infrastructure that the nuclear deal had otherwise required it to destroy. Per MEMRI:

Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, was interviewed on Channel 4 TV (Iran) on January 22, 2019. He said that the negotiations surrounding the JCPOA had required Iran to destroy the Arak reactor’s calandria by filling it with cement, but that Iran had secretly acquired replacement tubes ahead of time so that the reactor’s functionality would not be ultimately affected. He also said that pictures that had circulated that showed the Arak reactor’s pit filled with cement had been photoshopped.
