Nancy Pelosi Lambasted For Giving Ilhan Omar A Spot on the Foreign Affairs Committee

Published

on

Democrat House speaker Nancy Pelosi is getting criticized from all angles during this government shutdown over border Wall funding, and her other decisions as party leader are not helping her gain any friends.

Pelosi’s appointment of Minnesota freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee set off alarm bells in the national security establishment, given Omar’s well-documented record of anti-Israel agitation.

“It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a member who has a documented history of making anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks. Rather than standing up against the disturbing rise of anti-Semitic rhetoric on the left, House Democrats have now just endorsed that ideology,” stated Republican Rep. Steve Scalise.

Liz Cheney and Ari Fleischer joined in the condemnation, and the nation of Israel is reportedly “nervous” about the appointment.

Omar’s early days in Congress have done nothing to dispel concerns about her left-wing philosophy.

Omar used her January 16 floor speech to promote the plight of migrants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

Omar referred to Trump’s “racist and cynical” big wall.

Omar, a Muslim congresswoman from Somalia, called the shutdown over border security a “manufactured crisis.”

“If the president wants to have a real conversation about border security, we are ready to have it,” Omar said, noting that the conversation would include “policies that extend humanity and compassion to migrants and refugees.”

Omar devoted special attention to addressing the situations in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, as another migrant caravan moves up toward the U.S. southern border. (Trump Cuts Off $555 Million To Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador).

Omar’s freshmen colleagues are also finding themselves in key committee posts. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib have landed on the House Financial Services Committee under chairwoman Maxine Waters.

John Bolton Completes Turncoat Transformation, Slams Trump White House For Delaying Tell-All Book

Bolton’s book is subject to a national security review.

Published

on

Former White House National Security Adviser John Bolton bemoaned a national security review of his upcoming tell-all book when speaking at Duke University on Monday.

Bolton isn’t pleased that his book, “The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir,” is being delayed while White House national security personnel thoroughly review it to ensure any and all classified information remains private. According to Bolton, the book’s been in review since December 30th, hardly a lengthy period of time to ensure that classified U.S intelligence isn’t released to the broader public.

According to Bolton, the process is censorship.

I say things in the manuscript about what [Trump] said to me; I hope they become public someday. He tweets, but I can’t talk about it — how fair is that?”

Bolton was fired as National Security Adviser for consistently trying to undermine the President’s America First foreign policy vision, instead preferring a neoconservative approach of regime change, globalism, and wide-ranging foreign intervention.

He’s flirted strongly with anti-Trump resistance liberals since his ouster, falling out of the President’s good graces and drawing his ire in presidential tweets.

This isn’t the first time that Bolton has claimed the White House are censoring him. He incorrectly believed the White House was blocking his access to his official Twitter account, when by all indications it simply appears he was unaware how to bypass the two-factor authentication needed to access Twitter from a new IP address after his firing.

It’s totally reasonable for Bolton’s profiteering book to be delayed for any and all considerations over classified information. The longtime neoconservative pundit will simply have to wait to cash in.
