A pro-Hezbollah activist who openly hates Israel, a United States ally, and celebrated a deadly 2015 terror attack on the nation, attended the swearing-in ceremony and dinner party for freshmen Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).
‘I was honored to be at Congresswoman
@RashidaTlaib swearing in ceremony in #Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country,” said Abbas Hamideh.

Hamideh is the executive director of the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, a non-profit located in Cleveland. He is an open supporter of terrorist organization Hezbollah, and openly bragged about a 2015 Hezbollah attack that Israeli soldiers.
“BREAKING NEWS: 15 Israeli soldiers killed in #Hezbollah attack near the Lebanon border. 1 soldier reportedly missing,” he said overzealously on Twitter.
The Guardian confirmed later that two soldiers, not 15, were killed in the attack, which must have disappointed Abbas.
Many of his other Tweets are jihadist propaganda, praising the fierceness of Hezbollah.
“israeli terrorist diaper soldiers aren’t made for real battles that include a fierce resistance organization like Hezbollah. No chance,” he said in 2016.
He also actively encouraged terrorist attacks against Israel, apparently not a violation of Twitter’s terms of service, or worrisome for newly-elected Tlaib.
Funny how some pro #FSA are calling #Hezbollah attacks on israel as ‘theatrics.’ I hope they keep giving us more of it actually,” he said in 2015.
#FSA is the Free Syrian Army.
“Just remember Hezbollah Missiles don’t need visas to enter occupied #Palestine,” he said in 2014 with a grinning emoji.
There are hundreds of Tweets of this nature on Hamideh’s account.
Big League Politics has been reporting on Tlaib’s sympathy for radical Islamists. She assaulted Jewish journalist Laura Loomer at a campaign event for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), draped herself in a Palestinian flag when she was elected to the U.S. Congress, and Tweeted support for fired CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill, who called for the destruction of Israel “from the river to the sea,” which Hamideh has also done.
After vulgarly calling for the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump, an impeachment petition against Tlaib took off, garnering over 150,000 signatures.
Tlaib’s office did not immediately return a comment request.

FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days
There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.
There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.
John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.
In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.
Yes, Trump has time to nominate and get his nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court. EVERY SINGLE VOTE ON A #SCOTUS NOMINEE OF THE LAST 45 YEARS was voted on in less time than what Trump has between now and the end of his current term. pic.twitter.com/og5aOZsiw1

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.
McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
