Rashida Tlaib calls for elimination of Israel, then backs off for appearance’s sake

Here’s an example of behavior by an elected member of the U.S. Congress, Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan), which has been completely ignored by “mainstream” media even though it’s surely a story that Americans would want to know. Don’t we need to hear the views of those who represent us in Congress? And surely if a Congresswoman … Continue reading Rashida Tlaib calls for elimination of Israel, then backs off for appearance’s sake

Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib refused entry to Israel (they relent a bit on Tlaib)

As you probably know, “progressive” Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were refused entry to Israel by the government because they are vocal supporters of the BDS movement, whose aim (though downplayed) is to eliminate the state of Israel by promulgating the “right of return” that will create a single Arab-majority state.

Rift between “progressive” and centrist Democrats in House bill on Iron Dome funding

(Iron Dome funding has … Continue reading Rift between “progressive” and centrist Democrats in House bill on Iron Dome funding

A Congresswoman and an ACLU lawyer go after the New York Times for transphobia

Jesse Singal is well worth following for both his sensible reporting and his fierce tenacity in investigating like the effects of hormone blockers and, in this case, ridiculous criticisms of the New York Times by congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and lawyer Chase Strangio, Deputy Director for Transgender Justice and staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union … Continue reading A Congresswoman and an ACLU lawyer go after the New York Times for transphobia
