Tlaib and Omar face the voters

Featured image In nine days, Rep. Rashida Tlaib will defend the congressional seat she won in 2018. Her opponent is Brenda Jones, the Detroit City Council president whom Tlaib defeated by just 900 votes out of 90,000 cast in that year’s primary. One week later, Tlaib’s fellow “squad” member, Rep.

Rashida Tlaib Deletes

Featured image Rashida Tlaib is a freshman Congresswoman from Michigan and a member of the far-left “Squad.” She is a Muslim, and her animus toward Israel and Jews is perhaps worse even than Ilhan Omar’s. Yesterday Tlaib retweeted the claim that a “herd of violent Israeli settlers” had “kidnapped and murdered” a seven-year-old Palestinian boy.

Who’s Deporting Whom?

Featured image Contrary to what is often implied in the press, President Trump never suggested deporting anyone. His comment about the Squad was “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.

From Rashida With Love [with comment by Paul]

Featured image Congresswoman Rashida Talib has been in the news as a result of a Yahoo News podcast in which she participated. The podcast, titled “Skullduggery,” is an anti-Trump hatefest. This episode began with the hosts discussing the desirability of impeaching President Trump. Then they welcomed Tlaib as a guest, and talked about impeachment some more.
