 'Assault Weapon' Bans Are a Step Closer to Supreme Court  
On Monday the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit issued a ruling on gun restrictions in Connecticut and New York — including the latter's SAFE Act — ultimately delivering a victory to the liberal leadership of both states. There were just a few exceptions. According to the Democrat & Chronicle, "The court ... found New York's requirement that only seven bullets can be loaded into a 10-round magazine is unconstitutional, upholding a previous court ruling." Meanwhile, "In Connecticut, the court ruled against a provision that prohibits the ownership of a non-semiautomatic Remington 7615." The measures otherwise remain intact. The leftist fanfare may be temporary, however. The constitutionality over so-called assault weapon bans, which the courts have interpreted in conflicting ways, will eventually have to be taken up by the Supreme Court. But the final arbiter should think carefully before undermining the Rule of Law.
          To justify its ruling, the appeals court alarmingly determined, "When used, ['assault'] weapons tend to result in more numerous wounds, more serious wounds, and more victims. These weapons are disproportionately used in crime, and particularly in criminal mass shootings. They are also disproportionately used to kill law enforcement officers." The extent to which leftists are willing to distort the facts is breathtaking. As we recently documented, rifles of any type accounted for just 248 murders in 2014. You're likelier to die from contact with a fist or foot. But even if rifles did account for most murders, this isn't about "wounds, more serious wounds, and more victims." It's about enumerated rights. And magistrates are taking the nation on a dangerous path by making it up as they go along. The Supreme Court will soon face its most crucial decision yet. Buckle up.  -The Patriot Post

 The Wages of Clinton's Hypocrisy  
She'll run on her legacy, Hilly Clinton told us. Just look at her record. Oh, we have, and it's in tatters. Clinton has pointed to her supposed legacy of helping women and children as proof that she would be a good leader of this country. And to that end, she vowed to attack the gender pay gap, which she and other Democrats regularly over-inflate. (It's generally not inequality of pay, it's inequality of time in the workforce. But facts don't matter to the Left when they've got a "war on women" to yammer about.) Yet hypocrisy also abounds. According to data at the Office of Personnel Management, the State Department during Clinton's leadership paid male civilian employees, on average, $16,416 more per year than it did women. This was at a time when the gender pay gap across the federal government was only $7,911 for civilian employees. Clinton must have been too busy deleting emails to worry about petty things like the "progressive" ideal of equality. Dig further into Clinton's salary policies and you'll find wage inequality as part of Clinton's modus operandi. When she was a senator, women employees received 72 cents on every male employee's dollar. Even in her current campaign, women earn 88 cents for every dollar a male staffer earns. Clinton is not a champion for women when she can't even practice what she preaches.   -The Patriot Post

 loose lips-BIDEN THROWS JABS AT HILLY   At a gala for another vice president Tuesday night, loose lips-Joe Biden took a swipe at Hilly Clinton, saying it’s “naïve” to think the country can be governed without working with Republicans and calling for an end to “this notion that the enemy is the other party.” The critique aimed at her debate reference to Republicans as the “enemy” followed a dig earlier in the day that appeared to undermine Clinton’s claim that she pushed for the 2011 raid that killed Usama bin Laden. Fox News: “Without naming Clinton, he effectively contradicted her claim that she firmly backed the raid from the beginning….‘There were only two people who were definitive and were absolutely certain. Leon Panetta said go, [Defense Secretary] Bob Gates … said don’t go. Others were at 59-41,’ loose lips-Biden said…
          [loose lips-Biden] also contradicted his past recollections of the deliberations, telling the forum that while he privately supported the raid, he didn’t want to say so in front of everyone else as it risked ‘undercutting’ his relationship with nObama if the president decided against the [UBL] raid.”

 Publisher's Note: Clinton Testifies 
As we go to press today, the House Select Committee on Benghazi is grilling Hilly Clinton. Despite the grandstanding from committee Democrats, her felonious complicity in and her subsequent cover-up of the true story of the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi is on full display.
          First, for more than a year, Clinton has endeavored to escape accountability for unlawfully maintaining all of her official secretary of state communications outside of official networks. Clearly, this was an effort to protect her 2016 presidential bid from the plethora of nefarious activities reflected in those emails. Despite Clinton's claims — "I did not email any classified material to anyone" and "There is no classified material" — it is now apparent that hundreds and perhaps thousands of her unsecured email communications contained sensitive and classified content. Transmitting that content is a felony. But not only was her arrogant "above the law" use of unsecured email illegal, it was deadly because it exposed policy directives and the names of covert operatives. We can assume Russia and China had full access to all of Clinton's unsecured communication.
          Second, additional details may surface about how her emails demonstrate her complicity in formulating the political lie about the murder of our personnel in Benghazi — Christopher Stevens, his aide Sean Smith, and two diplomatic security officers, former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Her Benghazi lie was an effort to provide Barack nObama political cover for his "al-Qa'ida on the run" campaign theme just weeks ahead of the 2012 presidential election. So determined was Clinton to propagate this lie that she shamelessly stood in front of those four flag-draped caskets and declared to the families of the dead, "We've seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with." We will cover this testimony in detail Friday.

 URGENT: Hilly Thought She Was Done With Gowdy, But...  
{conservativetribune.com} ~ Hilly Clinton may have been laughing and smiling inappropriately during her appearance before the House Select Committee on Benghazi. After all, knowing Clinton, she probably thought that her shameful testimony would be the end of her problems... However, not only did her testimony create more holes in her story (she didn’t have a computer in her office? Chris Stevens didn’t have her email? Really?), but committee chair Rep. Trey Gowdy also reminded the former secretary of state that she still hadn’t turned over all of the necessary documents to his committee. Indeed, the State Department and Hilly Clinton haven’t exactly been forthcoming with the documents, with many emails remaining undiscovered for months and the former secretary of state deciding for herself which emails on her personal server were “work related” and which weren’t. In fact, many believe that Hilly Clinton’s failure to turn documents over to the House Select Committee on Benghazi might be cause for criminal charges, no matter what was on her private email server.        http://conservativetribune.com/hillary-thought-done-gowdy/?utm_sour...

 nObama, Clinton Operative “Done With Phony Outrage”...  
{rickwells.us} ~ Hilly Clinton can’t say what she would like to be saying in response to the accusations surrounding her involvement in the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi... Her proxy, the nObama operative who occupies a space on the evolutionary ladder just below that of primate excrement is not so encumbered, as he freely demonstrated. Media Matters elitist scumbag, David Brooks, tramples on the bodies of those that Clinton killed in Benghazi on national television as a means of defending her actions. What really matters, for the sub-human trash Brooks is that his criminal candidate is taking a hit politically. That’s unacceptable and he blames the families, labeling theirs as a “phony outrage” that he’s “done with.” Of course, none of the liberal CNN hosts took him to task for his offensive comments, but his adversary in the discussion, the honest guy in the shot, Ben Ferguson did.   http://rickwells.us/archives/21218

 China, Russia, Iran Closing Gap with Smaller, Older U.S. Military  
{Daniel Wiser} ~ U.S. adversaries including China, Russia, and Iran are developing military capabilities that will allow them to compete with shrinking and aging American forces in the coming years, according to a new report... The report, authored by the American Enterprise Institute and the Foreign Policy Initiative, warns that U.S. adversaries have been bolstering their militaries and purchasing cheaper weapon systems as the United States cuts its defense budget and delays acquisition of new equipment. Both China and Russia have increased their defense budgets by double digits in recent years, for example, while the United States could reduce its military spending by as much as $1 trillion in a decade under cuts known as sequestration. “After a procurement holiday in the 1990s and a hollow buildup during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, American military capabilities have declined independently and relatively to adversaries like China, Russia, and Iran,” the report said.        http://freebeacon.com/national-security/china-russia-iran-closing-g...

 Gowdy Just Unleashed 9 BLISTERING Words To Hilly...  
{Warner Todd Huston} ~ “You Are Not Worth 18 Months of My Life.” Those are the nine words that Representative Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., delivered to former Secretary of State Hilly Clinton over her failure to keep four Americans alive–including our U.S. ambassador to Libya–during the 2012 terror attacks in Benghazi... Gowdy also said that the last few weeks on the Benghazi committee have “been among the worst weeks of my life” as he drills down on just what happened during the lack of response by the nObama administration during the terror attack on ambassador Chris Stevens and his small protection detail. Thanks to several politically damaging comments made by Republicans who are neither on the Benghazi committee nor had any first hand knowledge about what was being done there, Gowdy has suffered an avalanche of attacks on his personal character.       http://www.westernjournalism.com/gowdy-just-unleashed-9-blistering-...

 Trey Gowdy’s Reflections On Hilly Clinton Benghazi Testimony...  
{rickwells.us} ~ Rep Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is asked after having had time to review the transcripts of Hilly Clinton’s testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi some questions  relating to her honesty... a word not often positively associated with the former Secretary of State. While noting that Clinton claims to have taken responsibility for the failures that occurred and which resulted in the deaths of four Americans, when it comes to specifics, he’s at a loss to come up with any. He notes that leaves us vulnerable to making the same mistakes and another failure such as the one he’s investigating, uninformed as to where the errors were made and who made them the last time around. Observers saw Clinton and the Democrats engaged in political damage control, with no effort to get to the truth, even if that means a greater threat to us in the future. Once again, Hilly Clinton is allowed off of the hook. Lying under oath, whether you’re the Attorney General, an IRS hack or a former Secretary of State is an option that seems to carry with it none of the penalties that are prescribed to the little people, the average, insignificant citizen of this nation.       http://rickwells.us/archives/21262

 US still wants Pakistan to expand counter-terrorism efforts  
{Robert Spencer} ~ After all these years, all the billions spent, all the U.S. counter-terror money funneled to al-Qaeda and the Taliban, all the outrage over the killing of bin Laden, all the Pakistani duplicity, the Washington establishment is still hoping that the Pakistanis will come around... This is self-delusion on a massive scale. After a meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and US President Barack nObama last week, both sides agreed on Thursday to take effective action against all terrorist groups, including Lashkar-e-Taiba. According to a joint statement issued after the meeting, Pakistan also agreed to ensure that all Taliban groups, including the Haqqani Network, “are unable to operate from the soil of Pakistan”….       http://www.jihadwatch.org/2015/10/us-still-want-pakistan-to-expand-...

 Megyn Kelly's Definitive Dismantling Of Benghazi Lies  
{ Caleb Howe} ~ On Fox News Thursday night, Megyn Kelly covered the Benghazi hearings, and laid out a timeline, with video clips, that absolutely, definitively, and devastatingly illustrate exactly how dishonest Hilly Clinton and Barack nObama have been with regard to the attacks and the infamous YouTube video... Fox has provided a long clip, including Kelly's interview with Mark Thiessen, but it is worth watching every minute of it. This is what people don't see on network news. It's what they don't hear on NPR in their car. This is why we have investigations and hearings and questions and interviews. Because there is truth, and it can be told. But you have to fight through layers upon layers upon layers of deeply ingrained water-carrying and toadying behavior from the media who, in the end, not only believe that Hilly is our inevitable next president, but are pleased by it and hope to be a part of the reason why.        http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/megyn-kellys-definitive-dismantling...

 Muslims ignore own Quran: Jewish Temple atop of Temple Mount  
{Jeff Dunetz} ~ On Sunday, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the Muslim cleric in charge of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, said there has never been a Jewish temple atop the Temple Mount... and that the site has been home to a mosque “since the creation of the world.” He said on top of Mount Moriah there was a mosque “3,000 years ago, and 30,000 years ago” and has been “since the creation of the world.” The Mufti is echoing the propaganda of Palestinian Chairman Abbas, and Muslims across the Middle East. But when he spews that nonsense he is ignoring the fact the ancient Greeks, Romans, Christians, and even the ancient Muslims reported that Jerusalem and Temple Mount were Jewish lands.        http://lidblog.com/muslims-ignore-their-own-quran-which-says-jewish...

 World Bank-IMF Pushes “Carbon Pricing” Global Tax-&-Spend  
{William F. Jasper} ~ Carbon budget. Carbon regime. Carbon pricing. Carbon trading. These are code words for the colossal UN grab for money and power at the upcoming global Climate Summit in December in Paris... With the United Nations’ world summit on global warming now only weeks away, the propaganda war is ratcheting up — at a furious pace. One of the latest salvos aimed at convincing the peoples and national governments of the world to empower the UN with vast new tax and regulatory powers is an op-ed co-authored by World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde for Project Syndicate (founded and funded by George Soros). Entitled “The Path to Carbon Pricing,” the op-ed is the latest rendition of the “carbon budget” scheme that the WB-IMF elites have been promoting for a number of years as a means to provide the UN and their Wall Street bankster allies with, literally, trillions of dollars in carbon taxes, carbon trading permits, and “green” investments. ”In just six weeks, world leaders will meet in Paris to negotiate a new global climate-change agreement,” Lagarde and Kim wrote. “To date, 150 countries have submitted plans detailing how they will move their economies along a more resilient low-carbon trajectory. These plans represent the first generation of investments to be made in order to build a competitive future without the dangerous levels of carbon-dioxide emissions that are now driving global warming.”         http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/21822-world-ban...

 Temporary Patch Gives Lawmakers More Time to Pass Highway Bill  
{Philip Wegmann} ~ House Republicans introduced legislation late last week to temporarily extend federal transportation funding for three weeks, giving lawmakers more time to work on a long-term highway bill... The funding “patch,” H.R. 3819, authorizes federal transportation spending for an additional three weeks by pushing the current expiration date back from October 29 to November 30. The patch would simply authorize the use of current funds from the Highway Trust Fund.

hanoi-Kerry, Israeli Arabs
and the separation delusion
Caroline B. Glick
.
.
     {jewishworldreview.com} ~ Israel’s political leaders have rightly expressed anger at the US State Department’s hostile characterizations of the Palestinian terrorist onslaught. Secretary of State hanoi-John Kerry’s claims, parroted by his spokesmen, that Israel is either entirely to blame for Palestinian terrorism or shares the blame equally with the Palestinians, are baseless lies.
.
     hanoi-Kerry and his spokesmen have alleged that the current Palestinian convulsion of murderous violence is a product of “a massive increase in settlements.” Yet as Haaretz reported this week, Israel has built fewer homes for Jews in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria since 2009, when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Barack nObama entered office, than it had since 1995. The steep increase in the Jewish population in the areas is almost entirely the result of Jewish women having babies.
.
     The other accusations the State Department has leveled against Israel – that it incites violence and engages in terrorism – are so obscene that there is no point in trying to set the record straight. Quite simply, an administration comfortable with libeling Israel in this way doesn’t want to know the truth.
.
     While at this point it is abundantly clear that hanoi-Kerry like the administration he serves has an unpleasant, irrational obsession with the Jewish state, it’s hard to shake the conclusion that there is more going on here than simply opposition to Israel.
.
     For instance his claim this week that “Unless we get going, a two-state solution could conceivably be stolen from everybody,” is more an assault on reality generally than on Israel in particular.
.
     hanoi-Kerry, like the nObama administration as a whole, is angry at reality because at least as far as Israel and its Palestinian neighbors are concerned, reality shares no common ground with the administration’s assumption of Israeli guilt.
.
     There is no chance that Palestinian Authority Chairman and PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas will agree to make peace with Israel. We know this not only because Abbas rejected peace and a Palestinian state when then-prime minister Ehud Olmert offered him both in 2008. We know this as well because three years ago Abbas rejected the idea of a negotiated settlement and opted instead to use the UN to gain international recognition of a Palestinian state at war with Israel.
.
     For the past several years, nObama and his advisers have collaborated with Abbas’s UN strategy by refusing to commit themselves to vetoing a UN Security Council resolution mandating the establishment of a Palestinian state.
.
     In so doing, they have shown that they want Israel to vacate Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria no matter what.
.
     If we learn nothing else from the current violence, we must learn that the idea we can separate from the Palestinians is a delusion.
.
     The current round of Palestinian terrorism, like last year’s offensive, has been largely undertaken by Arabs who live in Israel – either Israeli citizens from the Galilee or permanent residents from Jerusalem. The natural response that many Israelis have had to the fact that it is our fellow citizens and residents of our capital city that are perpetrating the violence has been to hope that a way can be found to finally separate from them.
.
     While understandable, this visceral response to Arab-Israeli terrorism is based on a misunderstanding of reality.
.
     Israelis who preach separation from the Palestinians as a strategic goal claim that the reason the Palestinians of Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem – like the Palestinians of Gaza and Hezbollah forces in Lebanon before them – oppose Israel is because Israel controls the territory they live in. Accordingly, they argue, if Israel quits these areas – as it withdrew from Gaza and south Lebanon in the past – the Palestinians will stop their attacks.
.
They are wrong.
.
     Arab Israelis and Jerusalem residents aren’t attacking Jews because Israel exercises sovereignty over the areas they live in. They are attacking Israel because like the Palestinians in Judea, and Samaria, they watch Palestinian and pan-Arab television, and like the Palestinians they use Facebook.
.
     In other words, the 1.7 million Arabs inside sovereign Israel, and the 1.7 million Palestinians in Judea and Samaria have been subjected to the same campaign of incitement and solicitation of terrorism against Jews over the past year and to the same 22 years of indoctrination to hate Jews and seek Israel’s destruction. The geographic borders separating these two groups have no impact whatsoever on their hearts and minds.
.
     The question isn’t how they feel, but whether or not they can act on their feelings.
.
     The reason that the Arab Israelis who have been moved to murder Jews do so with knives and pistols rather than missiles and suicide vests is that Israel controls Jerusalem and the Galilee. Israel’s sole security control over its territory enables the security cabinet to decide to deploy security forces throughout the country and to place roadblocks at the entrances to all the major Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem without fear of armed opposition.
.
     Likewise, the reason the Palestinians of Judea and Samaria haven’t renewed their mass casualty bombings from a decade ago despite the Palestinian and pan-Arab incitement is that beginning in Operation Defensive Shield in April 2002, the IDF retook control over the Palestinian population centers from the PA.
.
     Today Palestinian terrorist cells operating in the areas know that if they turn their guns on Israelis again, the IDF will immediately take their guns and arrest or kill them. Had Israel implemented then-prime minister Ehud Olmert’s plan to unilaterally withdraw from Judea and Samaria in 2007, Israel would be facing a catastrophic situation today.
.
     The main difference between the Arabs of Israel and of Judea and Samaria today is not their intentions, but the fact that in Israel proper, the government is the sole governing authority, while in Judea and Samaria, Israel shares sovereign control with the PLO-controlled PA. Two unique military challenges arise from this distinction. First, unlike the situation in Israel proper, in Judea and Samaria, the Palestinians are armed to the teeth. The quantities of firearms and explosives in Judea and Samaria are dizzying.
.
     Since 2007, when his forces were thrown out of Gaza, Abbas has viewed Hamas as a greater threat to his regime than Israel. As a result, he has cooperated with Israel in fighting Hamas and has not ordered his US-trained forces to turn their guns on the IDF and Israeli civilians.
.
     So since Israel’s ability to operate in Judea and Samaria at will has kept Hamas at bay, and Abbas’s belief that Hamas is a greater threat than Israel has kept him in check, Israel’s security control over the areas has prevented both Hamas and the PA from waging a renewed terrorist offensive against Israel.
.
     Unfortunately, this state of affairs will not last much longer. In all likelihood, at some point in the near to medium term, the PA’s threat assessment will change. The US-trained PA security forces will come to view Hamas as less of a threat than Israel.
.
     The main reason for this changed assessment is incitement. Like the rest of Palestinian society, the PA’s security services have been marinated in genocidal Jew hatred at the hands of Abbas’s media and Al Jazeera for the past 22 years. And as we see with the Jerusalem Arabs who run over Jews and then butcher them with meat cleavers, 22 years of indoctrination leaves a mark.
.
     But that’s not the only reason that the PA as we know it is about to disappear. In the not too distant future, Abbas will either retire or pass away.
.
     The PLO chief who incites Palestinians to murder Jews while owing his life and regime to the IDF which keeps Hamas and his Fatah challengers at bay is 80 years old. Just a month ago he resigned for the 10th time.
.
     None of Abbas’s possible successors will be likelier to lead the Palestinians to peaceful coexistence with Israel than Abbas has been.
.
     Moreover, none of them is likely to succeed in maintaining the PA as a coherent regime throughout Judea and Samaria. It is far likelier that after Abbas departs, the PA will fall apart and each Palestinian population center will be ruled by a local clan or militia. Under such a scenario, the current distinctions between Hamas and Fatah affiliates are likely to fall by the wayside.
.
     Here it is important to note that Israel has no interest in prolonging Abbas’s tenure. To the contrary, his record in office makes clear that he has personally caused great damage to Israel.
.
     For while Abbas owes his life and regime to Israel, he leads the diplomatic war against Israel in the international arena.
.
     Abbas’s refusal – despite his repeated resignations – to vacate his position, along with claims by Israeli office holders that he serves as a moderating force in Palestinian society, have placed Israel in a situation where it is forced to participate in the diplomatic war against itself.
.
     After all, if Abbas is moderate and legitimate, then his incitement against Israel is similarly legitimate.
.
     Israel’s reluctance to abandon the fiction of Abbas’s moderation makes it impossible for it to prepare for the day after he disappears.
.
     Such preparations would involve setting the stage for expanded Israeli control over the territories.
.
     Steps to this end include limiting the transfer of weapons and additional Palestinian forces to Judea and Samaria. To this end, Israel must begin explaining to Congress that continued US funding of the Palestinian security forces endangers Israel.
.
     So, too, Israel must pounce on any opportunity to seize weapons in Judea and Samaria.
.
     The more weapons Israel takes control over today, the fewer it will need to seize in the future.
.
     Perhaps more important than any specific step that it can and should take to minimize the long-term dangers posed by the heavily armed Palestinian militias and security forces, our political and military leaders simply need to recognize that Palestinian society in Judea and Samaria is about to undergo major political changes. The better Israel recognizes the dynamics at play, the better prepared it will be to shape the new reality ways that minimize threats to our long-term security.
.
     No, Israel cannot change what is in the hearts and minds of the Palestinians, or of its Arab citizens and permanent residents. And it is because of this that separation is a chimera.
.
     All we can do is limit their ability to act on the hatred that has been instilled in them for the past 22 years.
.
     As for hanoi-Kerry and his delusions, we have no choice but to allow him to fail to make peace again. But while we are at it, we need to recognize that given that he lives in his world of delusion, no concession Israel makes in the real world will satisfy him.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
