[JPost] - The poll, which started at the end of 2019, included Omar as one of the top three nominees, alongside Louis Farrakhan and Richard Spencer.
The votes are in and the counting has been completed: US Rep. Ilhan Omar is 2019's biggest antisemite, according to stopantisemitism.org.
The NGO announced that Omar would be awarded the contested title of biggest antisemite of the year on Monday, including a video listing her unmatched achievements in the field of Jew-hatred, accompanied sarcastically by congratulatory music and confetti.
[Red State] Senate Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is warning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Deliver the articles of impeachment by the end of the week or we will "take matters in our own hands."
He called Pelosi’s antics a "political stunt" and said neither he nor McConnell would stand for it.
From Fox News:
"What I would do, if she continues to refuse to send the articles as required by the Constitution, I would work with Senator McConnell to change the rules of the Senate so we could start the trial without her, if necessary," Graham proposed.
When asked how long he would wait before taking this step, Graham replied, "Days, not weeks."
"Well, we’re not going to let Nancy Pelosi use the rules of the Senate to her advantage. This is dangerous to the presidency as an institution," Graham said. "They impeached the president, but the speaker of the hosue is holding the articles back, trying to extort from the majority leader of the Senate a trial to her liking. They’re trying to hold these articles over the head of the president."
He can do that as long as he can guarantee at least 51 votes to get him there. They have 53 Republicans so they have to hope for not many defections. Hopefully, enough of them are together at this point, over the ridiculous actions of Pelosi.
He said that when they move on the articles, they would use the Clinton model of impeachment, take the record from the House, then allow each side, the House and then the President, to present their arguments. Then they would decide if any witnesses were needed. He said that he anticipated that would take about two weeks and would be done by the end of January, assuming they moved around Pelosi.
He said if she didn’t deliver them given notice, they would deem them delivered and move ahead without her, but invite the House to participate according to the Clinton model. "If they don’t come, dismiss the case and get on with governing the country," he finished.
I think #4 Raj has it. The issue is not impeachment any more. It is Pelosi and Co thinking that they hold a threat over the heads of Trump and the Republicans.
So the "defecate or decommode" is the correct response to these House Tantrumoids.

She is trying to insure the Senate rule will protect Biden and her son, who were both on the Ukraine dole. If they do allow witnesses many other congress critters will get exposed right before election for defrauding America of millions of defense dollars. Literally stealing from our troops during war time. Making carpet baggers look honorable.

I like what Besoeker said except I'd declare the deadline to be the week of the Democrat convention to ensure they have lots to talk about.
I think that Pelosi wants the two charge rag to rot and go away, while the rads and the village idiots in the house want to push this dung beetle ball somewhere towards the senate. Keep showing your knack for leadership Pelosi. You're doin' fine.

[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] A new line of attack on Virginia’s fast-growing gun sanctuary movement, which is propelling similar pro-gun efforts in other states, compares it to slavery, drawing criticism from movement leaders who have won support in 91% of the state’s counties.
In the latest Washington Post slam on the movement, dubbed "vigilantism" in a recent editorial, the paper gave space Sunday to a critic who said the "thinking" behind the organic movement is what propelled slavery and opposed the civil rights movement.
Peter Galuszka called the movement "disturbing," "reactionary," "hysteria," "ugly," and "dangerous."
In linking it to slavery, he wrote, "A sad irony is that the ’sanctuary’ movement conjures the disturbing nullification movements of the past three centuries in Virginia. Thomas Jefferson and James Madison argued that the states have the right to ignore federal laws they consider unconstitutional. That thinking was applied to proslavery movements, leading to the Civil War and the fight over integration in the 1950s and 1960s."
He also cited polls showing broad public support for gun control, which the new Democratic state legislature and Gov. Ralph Coonman Northam ...Governor of Virginia, another Dem Great White Hope. He won election by calling his Publican opponent Ed Gillespie a racist, but then, don't they all?... plan to use in arguing for a ban on modern sporting weapons such as the AR-15, limits on the size of magazines that hold cartridges, an expanded background check system, and a new $4 million, 18-member team to enforce new gun control measures and a limit on gun purchases.
Comparing gun sanctuary to slavery is a red herring that is meaningless. Nothing prevents African-Americans from obtaining firearms for personal protection or from a government that goes rogue. Many do. It seems like this sanctuary city, county, and state idea is going viral.
Everything through the prism of race, the gift of the Obama era, and the use of racism as the wedge to drive white guilt. The charge of Racism is now thrown at every target and is a tool of the socialist revolution and it needs to be dismissed as meaningless and trite...
[BREITBART] On Sunday’s broadcast of CNN’s "State of the Union," 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Being Native American has been part of my story since the day I was born Warren ...Dem Senatrix from Massachussetts, who traces her noble lineage all the way back to Big Chief Spouting Bull. It has been alleged that she speaks with forked tongue but she denies that. She had a DNA test to prove her lineage and it turns out she's colorless... (D-MA) questioned if President Donald Trump ...The tack in the backside of the Democratic Party... ’s reasons for the Qasem Soleimani liquidation was to distract from impeachment.
Warren said, "I think that the question that we ought to focus on is why now? Why not a month ago, and why not a month from now? And the answer from the administration seems to be that they can’t keep their story straight on this. They pointed in all different directions. And you know, the last time that we watched them do this was the summer over Ukraine. As soon as people started asking about the conversations between Donald Trump and the president of Ukraine and why aid had been held up to Ukraine, the administration did the same thing. They pointed in all directions of what was going on. And of course, what emerged then is that this is Donald Trump just trying to advance Donald Trump’s own political agenda. Not the agenda of the United States of America. So what happens right now? Next week, the president of the United States could be facing an impeachment trial in the Senate. We know that he is deeply upset about that. I think that people are reasonably asking why this moment? Why does he pick now to take this highly inflammatory, highly dangerous action that moves us closer to war? We have been at war for 20 years in the Middle East, and we need to stop the war this the Middle East and not expand it."
Tapper asked, "Are you suggesting that President Trump pulled the trigger and had Qasem Soleimani killed as a distraction from impeachment?"
Warren said, "Look, I think that people are reasonably asking about the timing and why it is that the administration seems to have all kinds of different answers. In the first 48 hours after this attack, what did we hear? Well, we heard it was for an imminent attack, and then we heard, no, no, it is to prevent any future attack, and then we heard that it is from the vice president himself and no, it is related to 9/11, and then we heard from president reports of people in the intelligence community saying that the whole, that the threat was overblown. You know, when the administration doesn’t seem to have a coherent answer for taking a step like this. They have taken a step that moves us closer to war, a step that puts everyone at risk, and step that puts the military at risk and puts the diplomats in the region at risk.
