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.Listen Download

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.

Is there an anti-woke rebellion going on in the National Hockey League?
VERBATIM: Well, something’s up. Last week the New York Rangers were hosting LGBT pride night at their arena. Team officials announced that the players would be wearing LGBT pride jerseys and rainbow tape on their sticks during pre-game warm-ups. But when the players came skating out, NONE of them were wearing the pride gear. One week earlier, a similar event was planned for the Philadelphia Flyers and defenseman Ivan Provorov refused to participate. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
