Congress Boots Anti-Semitic Democrat Ilhan Omar From Foreign Affairs Committee

The House narrowly voted Thursday to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) from the Foreign Affairs Committee over her anti-Semitic comments.

Omar was ejected along party lines in a 218-211 vote. No Republican joined Democrats in opposing her removal from the committee, though Rep. David Joyce (R., Ohio) voted present.

The anti-Israel Democrat has a history of using anti-Semitic rhetoric and tropes that has earned her censure from within her own party. In 2012, Omar said that “Israel has hypnotized the world.” Criticizing the pro-Israel lobbying group American Israel Public Affairs Committee in 2019, she said, “It’s all about the

Biden’s Top Economic Aide Leaves White House Amid Economic Slump

As the United States’ economy continues to suffer from slow growth and inflation, President Joe Biden announced Thursday that his National Economic Council director Brian Deese is stepping down.

Biden praised Deese for helping him “steer my economic vision into reality,” even as the country has come to the brink of recession. Biden touted Deese’s “critical” role in key legislation, including the American Rescue Plan, the CHIPS Act—a $280 billion technology investment that House Republicans say benefits China—and the so-called Inflation Reduction Act, which even Biden’s allies knew would not reduce inflation.

Deese, in a tweet Thursday, thanked

WATCH: CNN Graphic Backfires

When classified documents were initially discovered in President Joe Biden’s think-tank office in Washington, D.C., CNN aired a list to compare Biden’s classified documents scandal with former president Donald Trump’s. Biden, CNN assured viewers, had “under 12 total” classified documents, including only “some top secret.”

But after federal agents have discovered more classified documents in Biden’s home, the list of differences between Trump’s and Biden’s document scandals has rapidly dwindled.

Bless His Heart: Missouri Democrat Debuts Southern Accent After Launching Senate Bid

There’s a consultant-driven playbook for candidates: Ditch the khakis for jeans, roll up your sleeves, and start talking like your constituents. Missouri Democrat Lucas Kunce, who recently announced a Senate bid, may have taken that last piece of advice a little too far.

Since launching his campaign on Jan. 6, Kunce speaks with a soft Southern drawl. The accent was on full display in his campaign launch video, with one scene featuring a meditative Kunce sitting on a porch ripping Sen. Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) for his “banker daddy.”

That campaign ad was followed up by appearances on MSNBC where

Biden Admin Floats New Strategy To ‘Address the Climate Crisis’: Don’t Leave Your House

The COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t all bad, a new Biden administration plan to fight climate change argues: It at least “highlighted major opportunities” to reduce travel demand and lower carbon emissions through “remote work and virtual interactions.”

The plan—which President Joe Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency and Energy, Transportation, and Housing departments released in January—aims to “eliminate nearly all greenhouse gas emissions” from the transportation sector by 2050, mostly through a transition to electric vehicles. Also included in the plan, however, is a controversial call to reduce “commuting miles” through “an increase in remote work and virtual engagements,” including in education.

‘Squad’ Acolyte Jamaal Bowman Says Biden Admin Needs To ‘Invest in Climate’ To Solve Crime Spike

Democratic “Squad” member Jamaal Bowman (N.Y.) on Wednesday said the government needs to “invest in climate” rather than policing to promote public safety.

“The research shows we need a public health approach to public safety. You want to make us safer? Invest in poverty, in ending poverty, invest in housing, invest in climate, invest in education,” Bowman said on CNN. “What we’re doing is adding more police and feeding the prison industrial complex, and that has to stop.”

Bowman’s comments came in response to the Jan. 10 death of Tyre Nichols, who was beaten by Memphis police officers after being

WATCH: The White House Really Wants You to Know Biden Is Being ‘Cooperative’ With Docs Investigators

Throughout President Joe Biden’s classified documents scandal, the White House has insisted that the president is taking the matter “seriously.”

After FBI agents on Wednesday searched Biden’s vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Del., for classified documents, the Biden administration hammered a new point: The White House is being “cooperative”—a word spokesman Ian Sams repeated a dozen times during a brief media gaggle on the White House lawn.

Sams, who has led White House communications regarding the documents scandal, is best known for modeling the “Grillary Clinton” aprons sold by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

FACT CHECK: Would Stricter National Gun Laws Have Stopped California’s Mass Shootings?

Claim: Stricter national gun laws would have prevented a string of mass shootings in California.

Who said it: Gov. Gavin Newsom (D., Calif.), Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), the Washington Post.

Why it matters: California has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation and leaders who like to export their policies to the rest of the country. Newsom and congressional Democrats have spent the past week arguing that state laws won’t deter mass shooters unless the federal government steps up with its own restrictions.

Context: Americans are rattled by three consecutive mass shootings that killed 18 people

Meet the Dark Money Group Helping Democrats Undermine Republican Investigations

Democrats are relying on a dark money group to stymie Republican investigations into President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

The Congressional Integrity Project will provide the Biden White House and congressional Democrats with poll data, political ads, and opposition research on Republicans leading investigations into the Biden family, CNN reported. House Republicans have made clear their intention to investigate the Biden family’s business dealings, the president’s handling of classified documents, the border crisis, and federal mismanagement of the coronavirus relief program.

Democrats’ collusion with the Congressional Integrity Project contradicts party leaders’ insistence that dark money has undue influence

Iran on Cusp of Weapons-Grade Nuclear Materials

Iran is on the cusp of producing enough fissile material to power several nuclear weapons, according to the United Nations.

A confidential U.N. report leaked on Wednesday indicates that Iran is enriching uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon, up to 60 percent purity at its Fordow nuclear site, according to Reuters. The technological know-how needed to enrich uranium to these levels demonstrates that Iran has surpassed the threshold required for bomb-making.

Iran is believed to have altered nuclear centrifuges stored at the Fordow site, allowing the country to enrich uranium to these high levels of purity. The news
