Tlaib Attacks Census Director For Not Having Middle East Racial Category

Rep. Rashida Tlaib attacked the Census Director Dr. Steven Dillingham: ‘You’re erasing us.’

TLAIB: “We are rightfully concerned about communities like mine that are at serious risk of being undercounted in the 2020 census. But something I’m particularly concerned about is the lack of representation on the form of people who look like me. Starting in 2015, a research effort spanned years under the previous administration led by the Office Management and Budget, by community organizations like Access and the Arab-American Institute and many others, which pushed to add the new category in the 2020 survey called ‘Middle Eastern North African,’ or what we call MENA. In 2015, director, the category went into the field for testing, and based on the finding, the Census Bureau recommended the inclusion of MENA category in the 2020 census. Despite these findings, however, the Census Bureau announced under the current administration that MENA category would not be included in the census. Dr. Dillingham, do I look white to you?”

DILLINGHAM: “ Congresswoman, I think that if you tell me what you identify with, I think I would respect that.”

TLAIB: “So, director, are you aware that people like me who are Arab, Middle Eastern, North African, have to indicate that they are white on the U.S. Census?”

DILLINGHAM: “Congresswoman, we actually have on the — and I understand there was a process in deciding, certainly before I got to the census, and there’s a history to coming up with the questions in the race and ethnicity categories —“

TLAIB: “No, they ignored him. Director, the previous administration decided to put MENA on the form, they ignored it. But do you think if I circled ‘white’ category, that would be an accurate of my racial and ethnic background?”

DILLINGHAM: “Congresswoman, we do not second-guess what you put down there, and we do have a write-in, people can —“

TLAIB: “You are not giving me an option because let me tell you, there is a reason why the recommendation happened. Because circling ‘white’ on the census changed my lived experience as a person of color in our country. Even saying that, you understand there is a difference when you actually have the check-off box. Because the MENA community, like others, relies on accurate census representation for health research, director, language assistant, civil rights laws, and reporting educational outcomes. In addition, it would help address things like crime reporting, director, helping minority business owners get loans and drawing congressional and state legislative boundaries. So, director, do you believe it’s important to better collect racial and race information from census participants of Middle Eastern and North African descent?”

DILLINGHAM: “Congresswoman —“

TLAIB: “Do you believe that?”

DILLINGHAM: “I can say that by having the write-in provision —“

TLAIB: “Sir, it does not have the same impact and you know that. You know that. That’s why the community pushed to add the category MENA, and they did it right, they went through the process and they got it approved. And this administration decided to ignore them and make them invisible again. Right? That is what you are doing, you are making us invisible. Now, the continued absence of this ethnic category attributes to erasing us. We all live and work and raise our families here. I truly believe this issue needs to be addressed and we need your leadership to push back against this current administration lack of wanting to see people like me being represented on an official government federal form that decides around funding, decide how they will treat us and approach health research, language assistance, all those kinds of things. Director, we need to get it right because I am not white. I’m not. And I don’t try to say to others that you should be this or that. But when I sit on this form and I look at it, I don’t see myself represented on this form. And I think that’s a huge issue for people like me, and I need you to do more in pushing back against the current administration ignoring what the previous administration was able to do. The U.S. Census Bureau decided to add MENA and they ignored it.”

DILLINGHAM: “Congresswoman, I assure you that we continue to study race and ethnicity in the options for self-reporting — let me just say — we want your views and were beginning to process looking at the 2030 census.”

TLAIB: “It’s too late because for ten years we will be invisible. The health research, small business loans, we’ll be invisible for another decade in our country. And I think it is wrong and it was wrong to ignore the effort of not only the office of management and budget but the organizations and others who follow the process, did what they needed, get public input to make sure we are seeing finally by the own federal government. Thank you.”

Elizabeth Warren Refuses To Recognize Jerusalem As Israel’s Capital: Still Need To “Determine The Capital”

Published

on

2020 Democrat presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren refuses to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city, saying the parties still need to “determine the capital.”

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Period. It has been the capital for thousands of years. President Donald Trump did the right thing. He had the guts to actually do what every candidate has promised to do but didn’t.

The land of Israel was granted by God to the descendants of Abraham. In the Book of Genesis, God appeared to Abraham and said: “I will assign this land to your offspring” (Genesis 15:18-21). In this passage, God made a covenant – an agreement or understanding – with Abraham. He repeats this covenant is eternal and unconditional throughout the Bible.

Report: There’s An On-The-Record Witness To The Bloomberg ‘Kill It’ Story

Report: There’s An On-The-Record Witness To The Bloomberg ‘Kill It’ Story

We regret to inform Gayle King and the other awful CBS moderators that there’s an on-the-record witness to the Mike Bloomberg ‘kill it’ story.

Twitchy:

One of the fiery moments from last night’s debate on CBS News was when Elizabeth Warren challenging Michael Bloomberg over an old lawsuit where he allegedly told a newly-pregnant employee to “kill it” rather than giver birth.

Bloomberg denied he ever said it. Via Axios:

“Categorically never said it. When I was accused of doing it, we couldn’t figure out what she was talking about. But right now, I’m sorry if she heard what she thought she heard or whatever happened, I didn’t take any pleasure in that,” Bloomberg stated. More

Just yesterday, the Democrat party was claiming that the Republicans are taking away women’s’ human rights by proposing to ban the murder of a child who was born after a failed attempt to kill the child in the womb. We’re supposed to believe they’re now appalled that one of their candidates suggested an abortion?

Now California Wants to Force Stores to Stock ‘Gender Neutral’ Products

The fascist Democrats in California want a law to force stores to carry products to suit the radical transgender movement.

Published

on

The fascist Democrats in California are at it again. This time they want a law to force stores to carry products to suit the radical transgender movement.

The new bill would force stores to dedicate a section of their stores to gender neutral products, according to KGTV.

Democrat Assemblyman Evan Low recently introduced Assembly Bill 2826.

The bill would force retailers to dedicate floor space in their stores to products not specifically marketed to boys or girls but are sold as gender neutral.

“Keeping similar items that are traditionally marketed either for girls or for boys separated makes it more difficult for the consumer to compare the products and incorrectly implies that their use by one gender is inappropriate,” the bill says.

If passed, retailers who fail to follow the new rules would be liable for a civil penalty beginning on January 1 of 2023.

This bill reportedly only applies to stores with over 500 employees.

But that is so entirely arbitrary that it is a meaningless distinction. Worse, if such an idiotic, un-American bill passes, it will give the precedent to allow the legislature to meddle in the business of every company, and not just larger ones.

Only a Democrat would imagine that government should dictate to a business what they should be allowed to sell.

Here is the full text of this fascist bill.

Gowdy: Stop Giving Classified Briefings To Any ‘Epidemic Leaker’

Published

on

Former Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy urged top intelligence officials to stop delivering sensitive briefings to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff because he is “epidemic leaker.”

“What the Intelligence Committee needs to give some thought to is to stop briefing someone who has a history and is an epidemic leaker. Quit briefing him,” Gowdy told Fox News’ “Hannity.”

“Yeah, Sean, we spent … at least two years for [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller to tell us there was no evidence of collusion. It took two minutes this time to for us to find out there was no evidence. As soon as a Republican asked the briefer in a classified intel briefing ‘what evidence do you have to support that assessment?’ The answer was none.”

Why don’t people who leak classified information ever get arrested?

TDC:

The Fox News contributor was prompted to make the comment during a discussion on recent allegations that Russia is actively working to secure President Donald Trump’s reelection Gowdy says at least this latest Russia collusion hoax has been nipped in the bud before it took on a life of its own.

While grateful that this latest story was addressed quickly, Gowdy wondered why classified information continues to be leaked. “We were lectured by the D.C. media and the Democrats that ‘No one is above the law.’ Remember that, Sean? How many times have we heard ‘no one is above the law?’ Apparently except whoever leaked classified information from [Democratic California Rep.] Adam Schiff’s [intelligence] committee.”

When asked why there have been no legal repercussions for Schiff after claiming he had evidence of Trump’s collusion with Russia, Gowdy replied that Schiff was largely talking to the media. More

President Trump should arrange a classified briefing for Adam Schiff of false information designed to ferret out “the intelligence leaker” and when the false information (that Schiff is the only one who’s been told about it) ends up on the front page of the NY Times… prosecute him for improper handling of classified data.

Democrat Congresswoman Rips Bernie After His Castro Defense

Published

on

Florida Democrat Debbie Mucarsel-Powell went after presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders about his remarks on criminal Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro during an interview on “60 Minutes.”

“As the first South American immigrant member of Congress who proudly represents thousands of Cuban Americans, I find Senator Bernie Sanders’ comments on Castro’s Cuba absolutely unacceptable,” blasted Rep. Mucarsel-Powell, who is of South American descent, on Twitter today.

“The Castro regime murdered and jailed dissidents, and caused unspeakable harm to too many South Florida families,” the Democrat continued. “To this day, it remains an authoritarian regime that oppresses its people, subverts the free press, and stifles a free society.”

On “60 Minutes” last night, Sanders defended Castro to host Anderson Cooper, emphasizing the dictator’s “literacy program.”

“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know?” the socialist told Anderson Cooper, according to CBS News. “When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?”

Fidel Castro had his troops do target practice on his political opposition. But looking at it from Senator Bernie Sanders’ perspective, at least those that Castro assassinated had the ability to read and write.

Rep. Donna Shalala hopes that Sanders in the future “will take time to speak to some of my constituents before he decides to sing the praises of a murderous tyrant like Fidel Castro.”

Sanders says he would meet with Kim Jong Un as president:

Here are the experiences that helped shape his political beliefs:

CNN Mocks Biden After He Claims He Never Said South Carolina Was His Firewall

CNN panel mocks, fact checks Joe Biden for falsely claiming he never said South Carolina is his “firewall.”

Every time Joe Biden talks he seems annoyed by the people interviewing him. He gets agitated and flustered very easily. Terrible candidate performance.

February 2, 2020 interview with NBC News: BIDEN: I think I’ll do well in Nevada. And I think I have a real firewall in South Carolina. And then we go into the Super Tuesday states that have a significant number of minorities and African Americans,” where “I think I’m gonna do fine. So I don’t think that this is like it has been in the past, that if you haven’t won the first two that you’re done.

It looks like Joe Biden has a massive crack in his South Carolina firewall.

Townhall:

Former Vice President Joe Biden needs to win South Carolina. I mean, he really needs to win the Palmetto State—and not just by a few points. Sen. Bernie Sanders stomped everyone out in Nevada. Sanders won the popular vote in Iowa, won New Hampshire, and now could do well in South Carolina. The momentum is solidly behind him. There doesn’t appear much that could stop him.

Biden has always said the South Carolina will be his firewall. Sanders had trouble with black voters in 2016. This state was where Hillary Clinton pretty much put the contest away. Her strength with black Democrats in the South gave her a delegate lead that Sanders could not overcome. Now, the former vice president hopes to hit the brakes on the Bernie train. Yet, it’s possible that Sanders does well with black voters this go-around. CNN’s Abby Phillip made that point in the aftermath of the Nevada caucuses. And right now, Joe Biden’s support with black voters has dipped 19 percent (via Newsweek). More

If sleepy Joe thought he had it all wrapped he now knows that the nomination is not a sure thing. When CNN sticks the fork in your back, you know you’re done.
