Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), two members of “the Squad” of freshmen minority socialist Congresswomen, are being denied entry into the state of Israel following their history of making incendiary comments against Israel and supporting policies to harm the Jewish state.
The fake news media is attributing this decision to President Donald Trump, who has put the focus on the shameful record of these legislators despite being frequently called racist and sexist for doing so.
It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely officially announced the decision that Tlaib and Omar would be banned from entering the state of Israel earlier today.
“Israel has decided — we won’t enable the members of Congress to enter the country,” she told the Kan public broadcaster.
“We won’t allow those who deny our right to exist in this world to enter Israel. In principle this is a very justified decision,” she added.
Liberals are enraged by the decision, as it delegitimizes the radical socialist views of Omar and Tlaib, the first two Muslim women ever elected to the U.S. Congress.
1. The decision by Israel to ban Tlaib & Omar is unprecedented and a massive slap in the face of the US Congress. Bibi, Trump & their allies seem determined to end the bipartisan nature of the US-Israel relationship for their own short-term political benefit.

BREAKING: Israel just barred US Reps Omar and Tlaib entry into the country. No doubt due to Trump pressuring them not to. This is nothing but another attack on America by Trump. Trump is disgusting, pathetic, racist and un-American. He needs to resign or be impeached immediately.

For all those who say there is no occupation: Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar want to visit the Palestinian territories. However, it’s Israel that will get to decide whether or not they’re allowed to enter and visit Palestinians. That’s just another part of occupation

However, Tlaib and Omar have nobody to blame but themselves for the decision made by the administration of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. They have made offensive comments about Israel and supported policies against the Jewish state since before they were even elected last year.
Omar infamously wrote, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” in reference to AIPAC on her Twitter account, inferring that the Jewish lobby was buying off the support of Congress. She also made a statement questioning whether Jewish people could be loyal Americans.
“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” Omar said during a town hall in March.
Omar and Tlaib are also huge proponents of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against the state of Israel. Tlaib, whose parents were Palestinian refugees, is a particularly outspoken advocate of BDS.
“I personally support the BDS movement,” Tlaib said before she was elected into office. “I want us to see that segregation and how that has really harmed us being able to achieve real peace in that region.”
BREAKING: @RashidaTlaib is the 2nd US Congressperson to publicly endorse the BDS movement for Palestinian rights! Thank you Rashida & @IlhanMN for standing w/ us on the right side of history. We’re part of a growing wave 4 freedom, justice & equality 4 all https://t.co/jkICrrTffz pic.twitter.com/if7zjmdqn8

Tlaib once rejected the opportunity to visit Israel when it was politically convenient for her to do so, choosing instead to visit the West Bank to promote the cause of Palestine. Now, she is acting as if it is a massive dishonor to be denied a visit to the country whose government she opposes so vehemently.
If our country is sincere about being an honest broker to peace than my sity deserves to be seen and heard just like any other human being. She deserves human dignity. Let’s try a different approach, shall we. https://t.co/x0pUlQvvJM

With the state of Israel rejecting the entry of Omar and Tlaib, it makes it clear that those socialist Congresswomen are doing damage to U.S. diplomacy while President Trump is bringing nations closer together.
Democrats Ready Lobbying Push to End Senate Filibuster In the Event of Biden Victory
They hope to dominate the opposition.
D.C. Democrats are preparing a lobbying effort to erase the traditional filibuster rule in the United States Senate, which requires 60 votes for the passage of most new legislation.
Eli Zupnick, a former top aide to Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, will lead Fix Our Senate, a group that will demand the Senate alter its rules to jam through a progressive policy agenda.
“Our goal is to lift the filibuster higher on progressives’ agendas … [and] make it clear to a future President Biden and Senate leadership that they expect and demand speedy Senate rules reform in 2021 and will not accept more gridlock, delays, and excuses,” Zupnick told NBC.
Senator Chris Coons of Connecticut had earlier warned that he would not ‘accept’ no for an answer when it comes to the implementation of a Biden administration agenda. Many Democrats are still upset that the then-Republican Senate minority blocked much of President Obama’s policy wish list during his administration.
“I will not stand idly by for four years and watch the Biden administration’s initiatives blocked at every turn,” said the neoliberal Democrat, who frequently fashions himself as a moderate. Coons is reportedly playing a role in preparing the push to end the Senate filibuster. Joe Biden himself has been reluctant to sign off on such a proposal, claiming he wants to wait and see how he would potentially work with Senate Republicans as President.
Democrats hope to force through a boatload of progressive policies, including federal gun control(with the possibility of confiscation), unlimited abortion, new taxes on middle-class Americans, globalist free trade deals, and massive increases in legal immigration.
The demand that major legislation be passed with merely 50 votes will quickly disappear in the event that Democrats fail to secure a Senate majority in November.
