Ex-House Rep. Michele Bachmann exalts Trump: We will ‘never see a more godly, biblical president’

Former House Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., exalted President Trump as being “highly biblical” in a recent interview.

Bachmann, 63, spoke with “Understanding These Times,” a Christian radio show over the weekend and offered her praise of the commander-in-chief, adding there were so many examples of Trump “standing for righteousness.”

“One being Barack Obama had demanded and commanded that our military services had to literally go out and recruit people who are transgender to come into the military,” she claimed. “Well, it costs about a quarter of a million dollars to do sex reassignment surgery.”

“Why would you recruit people who would come in and have sex reassignment surgery and be on the sidelines? It made no sense, so Donald Trump got rid of that mandate and that requirement,” Bachmann said.

Bachmann was referring to the Trump administration’s military regulation that was slated to go into effect Friday. The new policy strips transgender troops of rights — which they only recently secured under the Obama administration — to serve openly and receive care if they choose to transition to another gender. An estimated 14,700 troops identify as transgender.

Bachmann applauded Trump for standing up “where most Republicans wouldn’t dare to.”

“Donald Trump has had the courage in the fortitude, and I will say to your listeners in my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump,” she said.

“He has so impressed me with what he has done, and we haven’t even talked about Israel. He is highly biblical. And I will say to your listeners, we will in all likelihood never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetimes. So we need to not only be praying for him. We need to support him, in my opinion, in every possible way we can,” she concluded.

Bachmann served four terms in Congress before announcing in 2014 that she will not be seeking re-election. She served as one of Trump’s evangelical advisers during his 2016 presidential candidate.

Conway: House Democratic leaders frustrated with Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and other ‘radical freshmen’

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said on Sunday that she believes there are a number of moderate Democrats in the House who are willing to work with President Trump, but that the “radical freshmen” lawmakers are frustrating them and hindering any attempts at bipartisanship.

Specifically referencing Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Conway said the crop of young, far-left lawmakers in Congress are causing “trouble in  (House Speaker Nancy) Pelosi paradise.”

“There’s a great deal of frustration among rank-and-file members who represent more moderate districts and, frankly, who represent districts that Donald Trump won in 2016. They’re very frustrated,” Conway said during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”

AOC REMINDS TRUMP IN TWEET ABOUT TAX RETURN REQUEST: ‘WE DIDN’T ASK YOU’

Conway added: “They’ve been to the White House. They talk to people like me, quietly, saying they wish the radical freshmen who get all the magazine covers and all the ink and airtime.”

Tlaib and Omar – along with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., — have frequently made front page news since joining Congress in January for their controversial statements and policies, as well as for their vocal criticism of the Trump administration.

House Democrats set out an ambitious agenda with legislation on the kitchen table priorities that helped them win the majority — protecting the Affordable Care Act, imposing new ethics rules — while engaging in aggressive oversight of the Trump administration. Their investigations extend well beyond Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election as they dig into the president’s business dealings and push for Trump’s tax returns.

But with the spotlight comes high-profile setbacks. Democrats splintered over Ocasio-Cortez’s climate change proposal and exposed party divisions over Omar’s comments on Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. Tlaib stunned some when, on Day One, she told supporters — using an expletive — that the new majority would impeach Trump.

Conway said Sunday that the “invitation is open” to any Democrat who wants to come to the White House to discuss divisive issues like immigration and border security.

“Let’s try to work together. But we have an unserious Congress that is not coming to the table. And the Republicans failed to do their job when they were in charge, no doubt. And Democrats now are failing to come together in the House,” she said.

Nadler blasts Trump for tweeting video of 9/11 attacks and Omar comments, says he has ‘no moral authority’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6025793483001_6025798979001-vs Nadler blasts Trump for tweeting video of 9/11 attacks and Omar comments, says he has 'no moral authority' fox-news/politics/state-and-local/controversies fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article Andrew O'Reilly 93573c33-b331-5be8-b9ef-3ab8f6ae891d

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., slammed President Trump on Sunday for tweeting a video over the weekend that combined images of the 9/11 terror attacks with remarks by freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Nadler said Trump has “no moral authority” to talk about the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil and called out Trump for reportedly taking a $150,000 government grant offered to small business owners in lower Manhattan following the 9/11 attacks.

“He wasn’t president then, but Donald Trump actually took a $150,000 grant from the Bush administration,” Nadler said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “He stole $150,000 from some small businessperson who could’ve used it to help rehabilitate himself.”

AOC FACES BACKLASH FOR USING ‘FIRST THEY CAME…’ HOLOCAUST POEM IN DEFENSE OF OMAR

The building Nadler is referring to is 40 Wall Street, also called The Trump Building. Some critics of the president have brought up a clip of Trump being interviewed on a local New Jersey news station on the morning of the attack, where the then-real estate mogul pointed out that with the collapse of the twin towers, 40 Wall Street is now the tallest building in lower Manhattan.

The controversy surrounding Trump and Omar began when the president tweeted the video of the burning World Trade Center towers and Omar speaking last month at the Council on American-Islamic Relations, where she said the organization was founded because “some people did something” and Muslims “were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

“For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it,” she said in the March 23 speech, according to video posted online. “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

CAIR was founded in 1994, according to its website, but its membership skyrocketed after the attacks.

Omar repeatedly has pushed fellow Democrats into uncomfortable territory over Israel with comments related to her assessment of the Jewish state’s influence in Washington. She apologized for suggesting that lawmakers support Israel for pay and said she isn’t criticizing Jews. But she refused to take back a tweet in which she suggested American supporters of Israel “pledge allegiance” to a foreign country.

WHITE HOUSE RIPS OMAR FOR CALLING STEPHEN MILLER A ‘WHITE NATIONALIST,’ HIGHLIGHTS HER ‘HISTORY OF ANTI-SEMITIC COMMENTS’

Her comments sparked an ugly episode among House Democrats after they responded with a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and the measure became a broader declaration against all forms of bigotry.

Omar has not backed down from her comments. She tweeted a quote from President George W. Bush, who said days after the attacks: “The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!”

“Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack?” Omar tweeted. “What if he was a Muslim.”

Several top Democrats – and a number of 2020 presidential hopefuls – have rushed to publicly defend Omar.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded Trump for using the “painful images of 9/11 for a political attack” against the first-term Minnesota Democrat.

And presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, campaigning in New Hampshire, accused Trump of “trying to incite violence and to divide us, and every political leader should speak out against that.”

Warren, a Massachusetts senator, said Republican leaders in Congress “cannot take a pass on this, cannot look the other way and pretend it isn’t happening. It is happening. And those who don’t speak out in the Republican leadership are complicit in what he is doing. It’s wrong.”

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar noted that a New York man recently was charged with threatening Omar’s life.

“The video the president chose to send out today will only incite more hate,” Klobuchar said. “You can disagree with her words — as I have done before — but this video is wrong. Enough.”

Former Pennsylvania governor calls Green New Deal ‘aspirational’ but says details ‘don’t make sense’

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said Friday that the aspirational aspects of the “Green New Deal” are ok but warns that the specifics that some Democrats have championed “don’t make sense.”

“Anybody who’s got half a brain agrees that there is climate change and that human activity has caused it and we better do something about it or we’re going to be cooked or at least our children are going to be cooked and so the aspirational aspects of the Green New Deal are ok… but the specifics don’t make sense,” Rendell, also a Democrat, told Fox News. “They cost too much and they’re trying to achieve something in a shorter period of time than it’s actually physically possible.”

Rendell says while he gives credit to his party that the Green New Deal is a step in the right direction, it’s “not a fully articulated policy.”

“It’s got to be looked at as if it’s realistic and we’ve got to get down to the nitty-gritty,” he said.

Rendell says the 14-page, double-spaced, non-binding resolution that was authored by New York Democrat Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey, isn’t a piece of legislation.

REP. SEAN DUFFY: GREEN NEW DEAL SUPPORTERS DON’T CARE ABOUT THE CLIMATE – THEY WANT CONTROL OVER YOUR LIFE

“They haven’t thought out a lot of the stuff that’s in there,” Rendell said, pointing to a section that doesn’t want automobiles powered by fossil fuels.

“The electric car… where do they think electricity comes from,” Rendell asked.

He later added that despite his reservations about some of the far-left lawmakers in his party, he gives them credit for jumpstarting the process in Congress.

“Good lord,” he said. “It’s climate change. It’s global warming. We see it every day. The weather patterns are so much different than when I was a kid. We’re in trouble and we’ve got to do something about it. And if this can get the discussion going then I give them a great deal of credit,” he said. “But this is not a real plan.”

The viral clip of conservative commentator Candace Owens accusing Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., of distorting her comments in such fashion that he must “believe black people are stupid” has become the most-viewed C-SPAN Twitter video from a House hearing.

The Twitter video of the exchange so far accumulated nearly 6.8 million views and appears to be on track to be most watched C-SPAN clip from a House hearing on all platforms.

CANDACE OWENS EXPLODES AT TED LIEU MID-HEARING AFTER HE PLAYS SHORT CLIP OF HER HITLER COMMENTS

“In less than 24 hours, this video is the most watched C-SPAN Twitter video from a House hearing (4.47 million views),” tweeted Jeremy Art, C-SPAN’s social media senior specialist, before the video got another 2.3 million views.

He added that it’s not yet the most watched C-SPAN video from a House hearing ever as it still lacks a couple of millions views – 5 million at the time of the tweet, though the gap has been cut in half since – to be on par with a video from a House hearing in 2017 in which Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was criticized for not being able to “come up with one example of discrimination that you would stand up for students.”

In the explosive video, Lieu fired the first shot at Owens by playing a short audio recording of her previous remarks at a conference in December, which were widely circulated in February, where she argued that she doesn’t have a problem with “nationalism.”

“I think the definition gets poisoned by elites that want globalism. Globalism is what I don’t want.  When we say ‘nationalism,’ the first thing people think about — at least in America — is Hitler,” she is heard saying.

“You know, he was a national socialist, but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK then, fine. The problem is, he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everyone to be German. …”

CANDACE OWENS: HEARING WAS A HOAX, DEMOCRATS WANT AFRICAN-AMERICANS TO FAIL

Owens fired back at Lieu, accusing him of intentionally misrepresenting her views to drive a false narrative.

“I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety,” Owens said.

“I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety.”

— Candace Owens

“He is assuming that black people will not go and pursue the full two-hour clip. He purposefully cut off — and you didn’t hear the question that was asked of me. He’s trying to present as if I was launching a defense of Hitler in Germany, when in fact the question that was presented to me was pertaining to whether I believed in nationalism, and that nationalism was bad,” she continued.

The New York Post on Thursday hit back at Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., following her recent comments on the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the U.S.

The dramatic front page had an infamous photo of New York City’s Twin Towers on fire on the day of the attacks. The towers collapsed after they were hit by planes that were hijacked. Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the attacks.

The cover of the New York Post on Thursday, April 11, 2019. (New York Post)

WHITE HOUSE RIPS OMAR FOR CALLING STEPHEN MILLER A ‘WHITE NATIONALIST,’ HIGHLIGHTS HER ‘HISTORY OF ANTI-SEMITIC COMMENTS

The bottom of the cover read in small lettering: “Omar outraged the families of 9/11 victims by referring dismissively to the terrorist attacks while speaking to a Muslim lobbying group.”

The Post was referring to Omar’s recent comments at the Council of American-Islamic Relations [CAIR] fundraiser last month where she called upon other Muslim-Americans to “make people uncomfortable” with their activism. However, another part of the speech surfaced on social media this week in which Omar described the terror attacks perpetrated by Al Qaeda.

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said at the event.

Her comments prompted a response from Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, a former Navy SEAL who lost his right eye after being injured by an IED in Afghanistan.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,’” Crenshaw wrote in a tweet. “Unbelievable.”

Omar, who became the first Somali-American elected to Congress in November, appeared on the “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday night where her comments were not addressed. The freshman congresswoman told the host she was still “learning” after she was accused of making an anti-Semitic remark in February.

“The whole process really has been one of growth for me, right,” she said. “I’m learning that everything is not as simple as we might think. As I’ve said to my constituents and my colleagues, when you tell me that you are pained by something I say, I will always listen and I will acknowledge your pain.”

Another aide to Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan has been implicated in the crime stemming from the case of former staffer Jackson Cosko who admitted to posting the personal information of GOP senators online and stealing Congressional data.

Cosko, who formerly worked for Hassan before his firing, pleaded guilty on Friday to five federal offenses for “doxxing” personal information of five Republican senators, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, during the hearings for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

He also confessed to stealing gigabytes-worth of data, including dozens of user names and passwords, Social Security numbers, and credit card information belonging to Senate employees,

Prosecutors said Cosko concocted an “extraordinarily extensive data-theft scheme, copying entire network drives, sorting and organizing sensitive data, and exploring ways to use that data to his benefit.”

But prosecutors now say that a second aide to Hassan has been involved in the data-stealing scheme, alleging that she helped Cosko to conduct the operation.

Samantha G. DeForest-Davis, whose LinkedIn states she’s a staff assistant to the senator, though Senate records indicate that she’s no longer working there, is being implicated in the crime, with a case being opened that names her, according to the Daily Caller.

DeForest-Davis hasn’t yet been charged with anything, though she allegedly provided a key that Cosko used to enter the senate office at night in an effort to set up the scheme to steal the data. Prosecutors said in courts records that she was aware of Cosko’s intentions.

The now-former staffer also reportedly filed an affidavit that could be used to determine whether she’s eligible for a public defender, the outlet reported.

Cosko worked for Hassan as a computer systems administrator until May 2018 when he was fired for failing to follow office procedures. This prompted him to enter the office and steal the information.

He went on to become an intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas. He was fired again amid his arrest for doxxing GOP senators after getting angry about their support Kavanaugh in the midst of allegations of impropriety.

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Fox News Wednesday that Attorney General William Barr struck the right chord and “depoliticized” the Mueller report during his testimony before Congress on Tuesday.

“He very much wants to depoliticize the Department of Justice and bring it back to its origins as a non-partisan law enforcement agency,” Dershowitz said. “He wants to have credibility. He wants to produce the report according to the law. He’s not going to be pressured by the president, he’s not going to be pressured by the Democrats, he’s not going to be pressured by the Republicans. He’s going to do it the right way. That’s the projected image that he wants to convey.”

Barr told lawmakers he expects to release his redacted version of the special counsel’s Trump-Russia report within a week. Democrats hammered him for hours on the report, criticized his handling of the document and demanded it be turned over without redactions.

Barr also told lawmakers that “the work of the special counsel was not a mystery to the people at the Department of Justice.”

He added that “there was some inkling into the thinking of the special counsel,” referring to an early March meeting with Mueller at the DOJ where the special counsel laid out his preliminary conclusions.

BARR REVEALS HE IS REVIEWING ‘CONDUCT’ OF FBI’S ORIGINAL RUSSIA PROBE

Dershowitz says it was important for Barr to say that because “you don’t want to fall into the situation where you have to make an important decision within 48 hours without having some advance knowledge.”

“I’m sure that Barr knew from Mueller what the thrust of the report was going to be,” he said. “He had time to think about it, talk to his aides about it and time to make the kind of decision the attorney general is supposed to make. …The special counsel works for the attorney general. It’s the attorney general who is ultimately responsible for deciding how much of the report to release, how to act on it.”

GOP trolls ‘Georgia’ Dem over residency claims, gets her to accept gift basket at ‘real home’ in Tennessee

Georgia Democratic Rep. Lucy McBath was the target of some creative trolling by the Republican Party over her widely disputed claim that she actually lives in Georgia, after receiving and signing for a gift basket the GOP sent to her address — in Tennessee.

McBath, a racial justice activist who defeated Republican incumbent Karen Handel in November, has been dogged with questions since the election campaign on whether she actually lives in the state she now represents.

The state’s Cobb County Tax Commissioner’s Office, which refrained from issuing a decision during the election due to appeals, confirmed last month that McBath didn’t meet the requirements to call her Cobb County home her primary residence for the three tax years leading up to the election, meaning she was a Tennessee resident when she was elected to Congress.

Rep. Lucy McBath accepted the gift on Friday at 10:45 a.m. and signed for it. 

DEM STACEY ABRAMS STILL NOT CONCEDING DEFEAT, CLAIMS GOP STOLE GEORGIA ELECTION

“We’ll say it again for the folks in the back: Lucy McBath is a resident of Tennessee, not Georgia. Instead of going to Georgia to meet and help her constituents, Lucy McBath jetted out of DC to her real home in Tennessee,” NRCC spokeswoman Camille Gallo said.

McBath’s office did not respond to Fox News’ repeated requests for comment.

The congresswoman disputed previous reports that she’s not a resident of Georgia, insisting that she only “briefly” lived in Tennessee or that she “recently” moved to Georgia.

Cobb County permits some residents to decrease their property tax liability through a homestead exemption to residents, an exemption McBath’s husband used since 2000.

Yet according to documents reviewed by AllOnGeorgia.com, her husband has been ordered to pay back taxes for the last three years as the exemption was revoked for having vehicle registrations, voter registrations and driver’s license applications in other states.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has suggested that the United States would have “blood on our hands” if legislation is not passed to tackle climate change.

Her comments came during a House Oversight Committee hearing Tuesday with John Kerry, the former Secretary of State, and Chuck Hagel, the former Secretary of Defense, where the subject of the role of global warming and national security was discussed.

Ocasio-Cortez first asked Hagel: “Do you think that neglecting to address these threats is – could contribute to an American – the loss of American life?”

PELOSI APPEARS TO MOCK OCASIO-CORTEZ OVER-RELIANCE ON TWITTER FOR SUPPORT

When he responded in the affirmative, she asked: “And do you think that denial or even delaying in that action could cost us American lives?”

When he again replied “yes,” she asked Kerry: “Do you think that appointing a federal panel that questions 26 years of established climate science (could) be responsible for the loss of American life?”

When Kerry said: “It could be,” she again followed up: “So I think what we have laid out here is a very clear moral problem and in terms of leadership, if we fail to act or even if we delay in acting, we will have blood on our hands? I don’t know if you’re allowed to agree with that Secretary Kerry or Secretary Hagel, but would you agree with that assessment?”

CROWLEY HAD DIRT ON OCASIO-CORTEZ BUT DECIDED NOT TO USE IT IN CAMPAIGN

Kerry replied: “As long as we do nothing, congresswoman, we are complicit in our acts of omission and commission of what we’re doing to choose for our energy, etc. And we’re going to contribute to people dying, we’re going to contribute to trillions of dollars of damage to property and we will change the face of life on this planet.”

During the hearing, Kerry also praised Ocasio-Cortez for offering “more leadership in one day or one week than President Trump has in his lifetime” on climate change.

Ocasio-Cortez, who championed the Green New Deal, responded on Twitter, saying she was “honored and humbled” by the climate.
