Today We Say Never Forget But Let’s Be Brutally Honest, We Are Forgetting.

War Veterans Social Media September 11th Politics Patriotism Morning Briefing migrants Middle East Media immigration Human Rights Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Culture & Faith Conservatives communism Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2019 #NeverForget

Today the United States of America once again pauses to take a moment to remember the events that reshaped the world on September-11-2001. Hard to believe that it has been 18 years since the purely evil events of that day unfolded. Yet here we are at another anniversary as time marches on.

Most of us will take to facebook and recount “where we were” when the planes struck and what an awful, tragic day that was. We will accompany those posts with memes that say “Never Forget” and then move on to September 12th and live our lives until next year. Which is of course what those who sacrificed their lives and those who were murdered would have wanted for us.

Let me very blunt here though.

We are forgetting and it is showing.

Here are some examples why…

On June 11th 2019 Luis Alvarez went before Congress to talk about the 9-11 victim compensation fund. Alvarez, a retired New York City Police Detective, and 9/11 first responder was there to plead for reauthorization of funds before a House committee.

Here is part of what he said according to Time

A little more than two weeks before his death, Alvarez – who was visibly very ill and thin – traveled to Congress and testified before the House Judiciary subcommittee, urging legislators to extend the fund.

“You made me come down here the day before my 69th round of chemo and I’m going to make sure that you never forget to take care of the 9/11 first responders,” he said. Comedian Jon Stewart testified shortly afterward, chastising Congress for taking years to make the program permanent and condemning the legislators who failed to show up to watch the first responders’ testimony.

At Alvarez’s chemotherapy appointment the following day, medical providers determined that his liver was failing and causing disorientation. Alvarez decided to enter hospice care shortly afterwards.

This hero died 18 days later.

You might have heard about this man and his colleagues going to Congress to ask for this without assistance from someone famous.

You DID hear about it because Jon Stewart had a meltdown, verbally undressing those elected officials for once again dropping the ball of simply keeping a promise. I know some reading this might have thought that Stewart did a bit of an acting job that day, well good for him if he was. He was at least ACTING as he cared on a day that was not Sept-11.

How does a nation that is saying “Never Forget” once a year allow our elected officials to forget those that responded first to these tragedies? They literally saved hundreds if not thousands of lives while giving up their own either on that day or a little bit each moment since, like Detective Alvarez.

“Never Forget” I guess does not apply to the still broken immigration system that this country has 18 years later. This has nothing to do with a wall but how we make sure that those that come here legally, stay here legally.  Five of the 19 hijackers were here illegally when the planes flew into World Trade Center One and Two, The Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

According to National Review

Did you remember that five of the 9/11 hijackers — Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, Hani Hanjour, Nawaf al-Hazmi, and Satam al-Suqami — carried out their killer plot after overstaying their visas, evading detection, and avoiding deportation?

Did you remember the other radical Muslim members of the Terrorist Visa Overstayers Club? They include 1997 New York subway bomber Lafi Khalil; 1993 World Trade Center bombers Mahmud Abouhalima, Mohammed Salameh, and Eyad Ismoil; 1993 New York landmark bombing plot conspirator Fadil Abdelgani; convicted Times Square bomb plotter Faisal Shahzad; and U.S. Capitol bomb plotter Amine El Khalifi, whose visa expired in 1999 and who escaped Homeland Security’s notice for 12 years before he was arrested in 2012 — just blocks from the Capitol building donning what he thought was a suicide-bomb vest.

Maybe we forgot.

How about the war in Afghanistan?

The reasons for going into that war were justified. The Taliban were harboring those that trained and plotted the attacks on America that fateful day. President Bush 43 was able to explain that clearly when the United States military invaded in early October 2001.

Now, 18 years later can anyone explain what the mission is and how we “win” this longest battle America has ever been in?

We have paid a heavy price according to Washington Post

The conflict had left 2,400 U.S. service members dead and more than 20,000 wounded; more than 145,000 people in all, including Afghan military, police and civilians, have died, according to a 2018 report from Brown University’s Costs of War Project; America has spent $737 billion on the war.

This doesn’t include the calculation of dealing with the long term effects of those who served in this conflict and the one in Iraq. They need our support just as much as those who stormed the towers on that clear Sept morning almost two decades ago.

Next year we will have High School seniors graduating in the United States of America that were born AFTER the attacks of 9-11. What that means is that the horrible events of that day will only be a recorded event for them much like Pearl Harbor or the Kennedy assassination was for us. Simply saying “Never Forget” will simply be an empty slogan for them unless those of us who watched those terrible events unfold that day make it mean something to them.

We need to be honest with them about what happened on that day and what has happened since.

We need to teach them that anyone with a badge or uniform is not automatically the enemy but people that deserve our respect.

We need to reinforce that there is evil in the world and ignoring it and hoping it goes away will only encourage it to thrive.

We need to teach them that “Never Forget” is not something we should not only do once a year but consistently throughout the year.  We should teach them this by doing it ourselves and showing by example not just by a Facebook post stating where you were for the 1000th time.

We need to ensure that those who rushed into the buildings and the regular folks who were thrust into horrifying circumstances and sacrificed themselves to save others are never forgotten.

Truly, Never Forgotten!!!!

Todd Beamer who was a passenger on United Flight 93 that crashed into Pennsylvania on this day along with some of the other passengers on his flight decided to storm the cockpit and stop their plane from being used as a weapon. Beamers last words as he was talking to a sky phone operator was “Let’s Roll” and he and others saved many lives while giving up their own.

If we do not fight the apathy that is creeping into the remembrances of what this day means during the other 364 days of the year, this country will turn Beamers last words into “Let’s Not” or “Who Cares” and that means, we will ultimately have forgotten.

So let us ban together to “Never Forget” so that “Never Happens”.

Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo Once Again Says No To Running For Senate

Even though Mitch McConnell really wants him to run, Mike Pompeo is happy right where he is now as Secretay of State.

In an interview that covered a number of topics, Pompeo was once again pressed on whether or not he would be interested in leaving the administration early and run for Senate in his home state of Kansas. He once again shot the idea down. Cold.

From the Washington Examiner…

Washington Examiner : You want people from Youngstown, Pittsburgh?

Pompeo: And Wichita. Yes, and small towns in Texas, and Alabama, and Mississippi, and Appalachia, and in Idaho and Montana. I want people to come from all around because we need those voices heard here at the State Department as well.

Washington Examiner : … and running for Senate?

Pompeo: I am going to stay here. I’ve talked about this. I’m focused on what I’m doing right now. You can go read about it. There’s lots of people talking about it. The only one who’s not talking about it—

Washington Examiner : Is you?

Pompeo: Is me. Precisely.

This is incredibly good news for the country and the Trump administration. Pompeo has been a steady hand at both C.I.A. and now at State. With the amount of overturn in this administrations cabinet, having the person at State Department being a valued asset to the President with North Korea, China, Hong Kong and Iran going on should be reassuring to most Americans.

Kansas is a usually reliable state for the Republicans. I fully understand why Senator Mitch McConell would want a candidate to run with the qualifications of Mr. Pompeo. However, if they can’t find another overly qualified person in Kansas to run on the GOP ticket than that should be worrisome to the overall chances for the GOP to retain control of that chamber in 2020.

For now, we have a steady hand at State during a critical time in U.S. Foreign policy and should be thankful for that.

Did CNN Put One Of Its Contributors Who Supports Trump On Ice?

Westlake Legal Group cnn-building-300x225 Did CNN Put One Of Its Contributors Who Supports Trump On Ice? white house washington D.C. Social Media racism Race progressives President Trump Prager University Oliver Darcy Morning Briefing Media Mainstream Media Hollywood Front Page Stories Front Page Fredo First Amendment Featured Story Featured Post fake news donald trump democrats corruption Conservatives CNN Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2019

Would CNN ( also known as the Fredo Network) put a paid contributor on ice for defending President Trump in a safe, honest venue like a Prager University video? Damn right they would. The way that Trump jackhammers them on a daily basis you really can’t blame them.

According to various reports around the interwebs, Trump’s 2020 advisory board member and CNN contributor Steve Cortes might have been put on ice from commentary on the network. President Trump has noticed.

From Mediaite…

“Where’s Steve?” Trump has repeatedly asked — according to two unnamed officials who have heard the president make the remark in the White House.

The Trump surrogate recently got in some hot water with his colleagues over his characterization of media reporting on the president’s comments about Charlottesville. In a video for PragerU, Cortes accused the media of committing “journalistic malfeasance” by saying that Trump described Nazis as “very fine people.”

“Calling this a ‘malicious lie’ (which it’s not) and ‘journalistic malfeasance’ (which it’s also not) is a weird thing for someone who is a paid CNN commentator to say, given the network’s accurate reporting on the matter,” said CNN’s Oliver Darcy, in response.

I love how Darcy just says this is not true out of hand. If you actually watch the Prager University video it makes some points that Darcy and his pals would have trouble refuting without a teleprompter. Which means words that someone else wrote and or approved for them. ( Prager university video below for YOU to take a look.)

Now if my understanding is correct on how most contracts work on the news side of things in cable T.V. than Steve is getting paid no matter if they use him or not. Each contract is individualized to a certain degree but generally, that is how they go. Plus he is an at-will employee so if they want to pay him to sit they can do that until his contract runs out and then he can shop his services elsewhere.

I absolutely believe that CNN would “punish” someone this way for putting out an argument that goes against the narrative that is peddled and might deserve a fair debate. The powers at CNN don’t want any part of that. They just wanna cover-up for Fredo and Don and hope they can get a bigger share live than Rachel Maddow gets in re-runs.

Check out the video below and let me know what you think about it or if the Fredo network would do such a thing as freeze out a Trump surrogate that they are paying for his point of view.

HEADS EXPLODE: Radio Host Calls Trump “The Second Coming” of God.

Ahem. Let’s start with some very basic things here.

IF you are a CHRISTian than you have only one savior whose name happens to be Jesus Christ. There is a whole book about Him in the Bible ( mostly the New Testament but some hints in the Old Testament) and His life is pretty well documented and His influence felt over the world today.

As of this writing, the Lord has not made His reappearance known. Which means the current President of the United States is not Jesus Christ. You can call me a skeptic but I’m feeling pretty good on this hot take.

Continuing on this theme, I’m pretty sure that the vast majority of those in the faith of Judaism believe they have not yet seen the messiah. I might be a bit weak on the specifics but I feel pretty good about this call also.

I’m a CHRISTian, my Lord and Savior is Jesus Christ and I want to be 100% clear on that before I continue.

Good? Good!

Now let’s get to the main event.

Now I’m going to assume that Wayne Allyn Root got a bit excited and might have used some hyperbole here in the tweets that President Trump retweeted earlier today, where Root called Trump the “Second Coming” for the Jewish people. Either that or Wayne bumped his head a bit earlier in the Nevada daylight.

Here are the tweets…

“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him….

….like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God…But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for…..

…..all Jews, Blacks, Gays, everyone. And importantly, he’s good for everyone in America who wants a job.” Wow!

If only Wayne had tweeted that last part about Trump is good for everyone who wants a job.

I doubt people in Israel think Trump is King over there but he has a better shot of that than being the Messiah. Like 100% to nothing.

I know that Donald Trump loves to promote what he is doing. That was one of the reasons he has had success over the years. If you deny that point then you are just in the emotional set that is still pissed Marco Rubio missed his chance in 2016 and you had your office in the West Wing all picked out.

This is where Trump needs to show he is joking ( the left will still blow up) over stuff like this.

Wayne is an entertaining guy but he is most famous for doing sports betting and convincing people to buy his system so you can feel good about getting beat by the spread every Sunday Night. The guy is not an expert on diety relations, because if he was he would not be referencing that the Jews thought Trump was the second coming of anything for the reasons I mentioned above.

I’m taking a guess here but part of the solid 35% that are always supporting Trump have a solid group that takes their belief in God more serious than the admiration of any elected official. There is no reason to screw with that in any way. Even if it is from a guy that lives in Sin City and can promise you his “Lock Of The Week” will make you $$$.

One last thing on this.

Heads are going to explode over the tweets above and I get that 100%. This is just a sideshow that didn’t need to happen.

The President is doing some really interesting things in regards to China. He is actually risking his Presidency by engaging in these tariffs and demanding that intellectual property theft needs to stop. He is spot-on in this regard and every administration going back to Reagan has looked the other way in dealing with China on this. This is an incredible moment and something this whole country should be behind.

Yet because of the flap caused by this, when Trump was making this point on the South Lawn before flying to Kentucky today he cracked a joke about him being the “chosen one” to take on China. Now, this important message will be lost. Tweet and video below…

Dammit, I hate it when a really good point gets lost.

So what have we learned here today?

Trump is not the messiah and not likely to be King of Israel.

If you are a CHRISTian, Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He claims the title of the Messiah.

People in Nevada named Wayne Allyn Root are great dinner guests and fun to watch a football game with but not really strong on diety assignments.

Donald Trump needs to talk THREE TIMES A DAY about what his administration is doing with China. Also, do not RT above twitter guy from Nevada unless it is the LOCK OF THE WEEK. Unless it has to do with the Detroit Lions than RT but do the opposite.

Amen.

Ouch: Trump Once Again Calls Afghanistan The “Harvard Of Terrorists”

This can NOT be a good recruiting tool for Harvard.

President Trump today in the Oval Office covered a wide range of issues from trade with China to the economy but he said something about the war in Afghanistan that stuck out as a “Trump moment.” He said that the country we have been fighting in for 19 years is like “Harvard University of terrorism.”

From Mediaite

He said the negotiations with Afghanistan and the Taliban are ongoing and “we’ll see what happens from it,” adding that the Taliban “would like to stop fighting us.”

When asked if the Taliban can be trusted, Trump said he believes “nobody can be trusted” and said, “We’ll always have intelligence and we’ll always have somebody there. But you could say that about a lot of places… But that does seem to be the Harvard University of terrorism.”

Kinda harsh.

The President has a very unique way of putting things and this is a clear example.

The ORGINAL reason we invaded Afghanistan back in October of 2001 was that the government led by the Taliban were allowing Al Queda to train and the government was helping fund these attacks all over the world. Yet 19 years later this place is STILL the Harvard of terror training? What have we done wrong or right? How many lives have we altered in doing what we have done?

I don’t blame any previous administration for doing what they thought was right but 19 years in we need to take a serious look at what we have done there and if we should continue to be there at all. In today’s presser, it sounds like the President is moving closer to wrapping up our time on the ground there. Hopefully, the introspection part begins before we leave.

Even if leaving means the “Harvard” of terrorism will go unabated with their activites, then we have to come up with a different strategy to fight this being the current one has no definable goal. If we don’t have a definable goal than we should never be putting our men and women wearing the nation’s uniform in harm’s way.

Ever.

Social Media SCOTUS progressives President Trump Never Trumpers Morning Briefing Media journalism Human Rights Hillary Clinton healthcare Government Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Courts Conservatives Allow Media Exception Abortion 2019

Will miracles ever cease?

I hope not.

I’m going to start this article with an admission.

I walked away by and large from doing “political” things during the 2016 primaries early on because of the sheer stupidity of how the candidates’ supporters were going on and on about how great their candidate was and how crappy Donald Trump was acting. I had friends on all sides of the issue that were busting up friendships over, in my mind, the candidate who would win the GOP nod and lose in the fall.

I personally was lobbied after the GOP Clevland convention to get on board with candidate Trump and I always refused politely. Not because I thought Clinton was great or anything like that, but I didn’t believe that Donald Trump was truly pro-life. I had enough of the jerking the pro-life chains during the Bush 43 administration and the other officials who talked a great game but feared the pro-abortion smear campaign if they touched any of the sacred money going to Planned Parenthood.

Well, I am here to say that I was 100% wrong about Donald Trump and his views on pro-life. His administration has successfully taken the fight to the biggest abortion provider in the nation and said you can’t use federal dollars to promote abortion.

Here is what happened according to CBS News

Planned Parenthood said all of its clinics will formally leave Title X, the marquee federal program dedicated to providing birth control to low-income women. A change to the program last year requires beneficiaries to comply with a so-called “gag order” on abortion services — something that Planned Parenthood said it isn’t willing to do. The clinic’s exit will result in a loss of millions of federal dollars.

In a conference call with reporters on Monday, Planned Parenthood’s new leader, Alexis McGill Johnson, announced all the health care clinic’s affiliates would be sending letters to the Department of Health and Human Services Monday, formally announcing their resignation from Title X. She warned that without Planned Parenthood, low-income women in rural areas would struggle to find affordable birth control options.

Title X funds have never been authorized to pay for abortions. Instead, the money is used for wellness exams, STD and HIV screenings, birth control and contraceptive education, according to Planned Parenthood. Anti-abortion rights advocates argue that any money given to Planned Parenthood — even if it’s not used for abortions — frees up funding to be used for the procedure.

But in February, a 312-page filing from the Department of Health and Human Services proposed what abortion rights advocates have referred to as a “gag rule.” Under the proposal, the agency wrote that “none of the funds appropriated for Title X may be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” The changes impact not just Planned Parenthood, but any clinic that supports, performs or even refers patients for abortion services.

PP has for a long time used federal money to free up and promote abortions. They have denied it but the evidence is clear and all the puff pieces in the MSM won’t obscure any of that.

No Republican administration since the adoption of Roe v Wade since 1972 has taken the fight to all levels on abortion as this one has. I would have never believed this even if someone from the future came back to tell me this in 2016. As I write this now I’m still somewhat dazed.

How is it that a New Yorker who was born into a real estate family and developed a media persona, now leads the most Pro-Life Presiedcy this nation has ever seen?

I don’t know, but I’m glad that miracles never cease.

Ahhh the good ole New York Times. All the news that is fit to print in luggage via a tweet.

We all know that Donald Trump and the New York Times kinda have a love/hate/reallyhate relationship that is just fun to watch. In fact, Trump tweeted this about the NYT just yesterday…

The New York Times will be out of business soon after I leave office, hopefully in 6 years. They have Zero credibility and are losing a fortune, even now, especially after their massive unfunded liability. I’m fairly certain they’ll endorse me just to keep it all going!

That last line about endorsing him to keep the paper going is what we call some high quality trolling via twitter. Now we can’t be sure if this was the cause of this next tweet but let’s just assume it was.

One of the Times reporters felt the need to report on…..luggage.

Louis Vitton luggage being removed from the baggage hold of AF1.

Now of course in defense of Maggie we don’t know if that is President Trump and his families bags. She doesn’t say either. However, the implication of it all is that a member of America’s military standing under the most protected plane in the world next to some fancy luggage HAS TO BE the guy who takes shots at her employer via twitter.

Honestly, this is not a bad troll job either by the Lois Lane wannabe. I’m not even going to poke fun at her for getting the name of the luggage wrong.  I looked all over for Louis Vitton luggage and I could not find one damn instance of it being made. This is just one of those situations that any young reporter tweeting about luggage would get mixed up when trying to break a story.

Tough business to be in yo.

So here is to you Maggie, for trying to be cute about tweeting about luggage in the hopes the unwashed masses would rise up against POTUS 45 and start a revolution that might gain you some of those SWEET Louis Vitton for when you need to flee the country.

Try next time about tweeting about President Trump’s sox.

Sen. John Cornyn Mic Drops Sen. Chuck Schumer On Twitter Over Climate Change.

Both of the Senators from Texas seem to have a lot of fun on Twitter these days. When they get under the skin of people who get so upset over a joke, it makes reading a long thread all worthwhile.

The latest example of this comes from the Senior Senator from the great State of Texas, John Cornyn, who was having a bit of fun according to Hill Reporter

In recent years, the Democrats have become the party of combating climate change, while some Republicans willingly deny the effect. This includes Donald Trump. When the Midwest experienced a 60-degree day in January, the President tweeted, “What the hell is going on with Global Warming? Please come back fast, we need you!”

Democrats have continued to raise the alarm on climate change on Twitter and during the debates. John Cornyn recently mocked a call to climate action from New York Senator Chuck Schumer. The Texas senator was then blasted on Twitter for his blase attitude on the issue.

This is how the exchange went down on Donald Trumps fav social media app.

July 2019 was the hottest month ever, of any month, on record.

Climate change is the greatest threat facing our planet.

It’s about our kids. It’s about our health. It’s about the future.

We must act. https://noaa.gov/news/july-2019-was-hottest-month-on-record-for-planet

Sen. Cornyn simply responded back with this…

It’s summer, Chuck

BOOM. Did you hear that three word Mic Drop? You would think that was a harmless response.

You would be wrong because the feelings over facts crowd went BEZERK. Just read some of the hilarious comments below. My personal favorites are the people who yell that it is not SUMMER in the southern hemisphere. Glad they retained that bit of info from feelings humanitarian class.

After reading this link that Sen. Schumer posted from NOAA the Earth on avg has raised it’s temp by 1.71 degrees from historical averages. Yup. The whole globe.

So just playing along with the theory that the lefties toy with about car and factory emissions being a HUGE driver of this, why did the KYOTO agreement exclude China and India which are in the top five of the biggest polluters according to these standards? The United States was a participant but dropped out after Bush 43 took office. The United States was expected to once again abide by rules and pay fines while other countries skated free.

Where were these dedicated activists protesting for those countries to comply? I’m sure standing in line for the newest social media gadget to tweet out their disgust. How noble.

If the progressives in this country were not so busy calling everyone that disagrees with them a racist, homophobe, Russian colluder or climate change denier, they might actually want to take a page out of Sen. Cornyn’s book here and have some fun.

I challenge them to get such a hilarious response with just a three-word tweet.

I DARE YA!!

If you didn’t know it before, you know now that the “C” in CNN does NOT stand for CREDIBILITY.

One week after CNN host non-extraordinaire went on a verbal tirade about being called “Fredo” and threatened to throw the person that uttered that word “I’ll f–king throw you down these stairs like a f–king punk.” CNN has still not done anything about it. Last week they did offer this weak-kneed excuse for an employee of theirs that suggested he would do bodily harm on someone. by saying…

“Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.”

He defended himself from being called a fictional character in a movie by doing the most stereotypical thing in a movie by threatening to mess another human being up? I covered this last week here at Red State with CNN Supports Violence Being Threatened By Its Host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo.

Some may think this is just moi or others finding any excuse to “pick” on CNN but this is really not the case nor is this a small thing.

We currently in this country have a divide that seems to be growing wider by the day in terms of politics that is in large part driven by LANGUAGE. We can’t seem to agree on terms that have been universally accepted and understood for millennia.

Under NO circumstances in the history of the big blue marble that we have called Earth ( or at least from 1972 on) has the name or term “Fredo” been considered an “ethnic slur.” Never. Not once.

However, Cuomo’s reaction to this was just about as bad as you could witness and the only thing worse would have been him acting upon his rage driven mania and actually hit someone. Would CNN have acted than or just drop another drivel excuse of supporting one of their own for the cause?

As I stated in my previous article when this first happened I was not looking for Fredo to get fired being everyone has a bad day. However, this silence and hoping it goes away is a horrible way for media companies to exist and it should not be tolerated. You can’t threaten violence and not even get a slap on the wrist.

Unless of course, you work for a liberal news network that pretends to report on the news objectively.

Not WOKE: Bill Maher BLASTS The BDS Movement Against Israel.

The aftermath of a publicity stunt gone badly by Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar continued into Friday Night on the show hosted by super-duper progressive icon, Bill Maher. His once a week HBO show “Real Time With Bill Maher” usually is a launching pad for attacks on Trump or anyone supporting him.

Occasionally though he throws a curveball and last night was one of those nights.

From The Hill…

Liberal commentator Bill Maher on Friday night went after the international movement to boycott Israel, calling it a “bullshit purity test” for Democrats after the Israeli government said it would deny entry to two U.S. congresswomen because of their support for the boycotts.

Maher drew applause in studio on his HBO show after declaring the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement supported by some congressional Democrats “a bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class.”

“It’s predicated on this notion, I think – it’s very shallow thinking – that the Jews in Israel, mostly white, and the Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct, and the Jews must be wrong. As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied,” he said.

As I covered here yesterday Rashida Tlaib Gives Donald Trump And Benjamin Netanyahu HUGE P.R. Victory this has turned out to be a huge flop as a publicity stunt for BDS. However, Maher touches on a deeper point here that I have not seen many in the mainstream media make.

The very idea that United States CITIZENS who happen to be elected officials are aligned with this movement which is based on pure fantasy is maddening to the logical mind. That Tlaib and Omar are so unskilled at pulling off a publicity stunt likes this pretty much proves Nancy Pelosi’s point from a month back. These Freshman members of the “Progressive Cheer Squad” are not ready for prime time yet.

When you have lost Bill Maher on something you might want to reexamine your whole overall outlook on things if you are a progressive. Luckily for us, these ladies will not do any such thing. They believe their cause is so righteous that they will not spend a moment for introspection on any of us.

Which means more goof-ups for us to watch for at least the next year and a half.
