House Votes To Oust Omar From Foreign Affairs Committee

Thu, Feb 2, 2023 at 4:39 pm

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s anti-semitic comments have cost her a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. House Republicans voted to oust the Somali-born Muslim lawmaker after her past comments critical of Israel, and comparing the U.S. military terrorist groups like Hamas and the Taliban. It was also a response by the new Republican majority after Democrats booted some conservative Republicans from committees in the last Congress. The Minnesota Democrat has apologized for comments that she has said she later came to understand were anti-semitic.

Former President Trump Kicks Off Campaign Events

Sat, Jan 28, 2023 at 10:16 pm

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.

Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.

Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.

The Satanic Temple is getting into the abortion business

VERBATIM: The organization says it is opening a telehealth abortion clinic in New Mexico. The Satanists call abortion one of their “rituals” and argue that it should be protected under the First Amendment guarantee of religious freedom. The New Mexico facility will actually be called the “Satanic Abortion Clinic” and will provide abortion pills through the mail for women who seek them. The Satanic Temple says it will also provide funding for women to travel to abortion-friendly states. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
