Ralph Northam does something racially insensitive in 1982
Ilhan Omar does something just as bad yesterday
>just say you're sorry honey and it'll be OK

Can anyone explain the double standard?


Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who has faced accusations of anti-Semitism for perpetuating the stereotype that Jews control politics with money, issued an apology Monday afternoon, a mea culpa amid a firestorm of criticism from both parties.

"Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes,” Omar said on Twitter. “We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.”

Earlier Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democratic leaders said in a statement that Omar’s use of “anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive,” but added that her critiques of Israel’s policies and its treatment of Palestinians are protected by free speech.

> Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who has faced accusations of anti-Semitism for perpetuating the stereotype that Jews control politics with money,

Except it’s not a stereotype, Israeli and American Jews are factually and objectively bribing American politicians for the betterment of Israel and Jews in general, even if this comes at the expense of the American people.

> issued an apology Monday

She’s stupid. She didn’t say anything that wasn’t true and shouldn’t apologize.

But like her Dem cohort Communist Barbie Ocasio-Cortez, who suddenly “discovered” Jewish ancestors, I suspect she’ll soon be coopted AIPAC and the DNC and used to lure young people to the Dem party with her rhetoric, while achieving none of the goals she got elected on.
>Communist Barbie
You had good points until here. Please stop slurping up alarmist buzzwords. Nobody thinks you're cool. Nobody thinks you're funny.
>but, nobody found the suggestion that AIPAC bribes politicians to support settlement building to be offensive
this is the same as white nationalism or Nazism, just translated so that the Jew is the persecutor and Palestinians are the persecuted
the only ones bitching are redditors from the_cuckold
So all of /pol/ is bitching. Got it.

>WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. retail sales recorded their biggest drop in more than nine years in December as receipts fell across the board, suggesting a sharp slowdown in economic activity at the end of 2018.

>The shockingly weak report from the Commerce Department on Thursday led to growth estimates for the fourth-quarter being cut to below a 2.0 percent annualized rate.

>December’s collapse in retail sales and other data showing an unexpected increase in the number of Americans filing claims for unemployment benefits last week and a second straight monthly decline in producer prices in January support the Federal Reserve’s pledge to be “patient” before raising interest rates further this year.

>“Until this morning, Fed official hesitance to hike further was based on risks emanating from global growth and from financial markets, despite a strong domestic outlook,” said Andrew Hollenhorst, an economist at Citigroup in New York. “The decline in retail sales calls into question the domestic growth assumption.”

>Retail sales tumbled 1.2 percent, the largest decline since September 2009 when the economy was emerging from recession. Sales edged up 0.1 percent in November. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast retail sales gaining 0.2 percent in December. Sales in December rose 2.3 percent from a year ago.

>The December retail sales report was delayed by a 35-day partial shutdown of the federal government that ended on Jan. 25. No date has been set for the release of the January retail sales report, which was scheduled for publication on Friday.

/pol/ppets are getting desperate to cover for Trump since he's crashing the economy.
Are you saying that the anon who posted 356423 works for Reuters?
No, but he at least knew how to link posts.
It is a common belief that shills get paid based on (You)s. I think it is a stupid thing to get bent out of shape about, but I can at least understand why a person who believes they are calling out a shill wouldn't want to pay them in the process
Frankly, it just makes them look like a broken bot.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) predicted in a new interview that Republican leaders in Congress would not support another partial government shutdown over funding for President Trump's plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Speaker joked while being questioned by Politico that the issue was "too hot" for Republican congressional leaders, and pledged to support any deal that arises from negotiations between House and Senate lawmakers on border security.

“There will not be another shutdown,” she told the news outlet. “No, it’s not going to happen.”

“I have a club that I started, it’s called the ‘Too Hot to Handle Club.’ And this is a too-hot-to-handle issue,” Pelosi reportedly added.

Her comments come as Congress and the White House approach a deadline to fund the federal government and avoid another partial shutdown.

Funding for the federal government is set to expire on Feb. 15 unless Congress passes another appropriations bill. Democrats have vowed to remain firm in their promise not to provide funding for a border wall, while the president has publicly considered declaring a national emergency and allocating funding for the project himself.

Pelosi also took aim at Trump's State of the Union address late Tuesday. The president in that speech called for unity and hours later bashed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

“Don’t waste your time on this. This is theatrics, this is not government. We just take this in stride," Pelosi told Politico.

Made me laugh.
>Made me laugh.
That's how I feel when I see how little Trump has accomplished in two years.
The Muslim Ban was exposed as the politically motivated racism it was because Trump said he would need the ban to just reorganize things for several months. He could have done that while the Muslim ban was being fought in court but he didn't. So you just got exposed as being a bunch of racists who don't care about the security of the country.

Also don't forget, every extremist attack last year came from the right wing.
Hey. It's me, >>353236. I'm still here. And as you've probably heard, there's no shutdown. So as promised, I'm here to gloat.

Yep. Instead, Trump is planning to simultaneously sign a bill that gets him less than 5% of the funding he wanted, and make a declaration that, if it is not overturned by Congress, the Courts, or his own party, will set a precedent that every sane republican knows will come back to bite them in the ass.

President Donald Trump appears to be moving -- unhappily -- closer to signing a bipartisan agreement that provides only a fraction of the money he demanded for a border wall. But in conversations with allies over the past days, he has griped that Republican negotiators were outplayed by their Democratic counterparts, securing a border funding number far smaller than Trump has spent the last two months demanding.

As a months-long government funding standoff appears to reach its conclusion, Trump has found his seat at the negotiating table diminished after his tactics failed to yield progress. For a candidate who campaigned as the consummate deal artist, it's an unpleasant reminder that grand bipartisan compromises have so far evaded him.
The President's own aides have worked behind the scenes to cast the outcome less as a concession and more as an opportunity. Trump himself has been only partly receptive to that characterization.
White House aides were still reviewing the legislative text of the bill -- which stacked up to more than 1,000 pages -- on Thursday, looking for any potential "landmines" that might cause the President to reject it. Trump signaled to advisers and allies this week he was inclined to sign it to avoid another government shutdown, and would use executive action to attempt securing additional border wall dollars.

Why wouldn't he gripe? The dems act like a team and the repubs act like a bunch of morons who didn't stand behind their president (because some of 'em don't shoot straight). He's right to gripe.
he's right, tho, that's buzzfeed-level horseshit journalism said only to give the appearance of validity. That phrase used to mean something, but 3 years of abuse has left it lacking.

>President Trump's former lawyer John Dowd says he does not expect the public to hear from Robert Mueller or see his final report after his investigation is completed.
He is on Trump's side, so maybe he's full of hot air, like Whitaker announcing it's coming to a close (wishful thinking). But if it did happen that way I think it was cause pandemonium in Washington. Then we will never hear the end of this until it sees the light of day. And I am so sick of hearing about it. I just want it to be over, whatever the outcome is.
19 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Honestly, Dowd saying this fits with the same pattern of behavior as what Whitaker and Giuliani have done. It's dismissive behavior, plain and simple, because regardless of what the findings of the investigation are, this flippant attitude will disseminate through Trump's base and create an echo chamber of doubt no matter what Mueller's team might find. It gives Trump the ability to say "see, the American people are behind me and this is all false," allowing him to justify everything from pardons to suppression of the report.
>cherry picking
Manafort just happened to hand over polling data to the Russians and talk about what Trump would do for the Russians if he were president in regards to Ukraine.

Well, if it's so obvious, you think Mueller would have charged him with it.
He can file new charges now that plead deal is torn up. Although just from the fact the plead deal is gone, Manaforts going to rot the rest of life in prison now.
>He can file new charges now that plead deal is torn up.
He was always able to file those charges, plea or no plea. Pleading guilty to a list of crimes does not mean that you cannot be charged with other crimes, if you committed them. And prosecutors are required by the US Attorney's manual to "charge and pursue the most serious, readily provable offenses" u pfront unless there are extenuating circumstances suggesting they should not.

It's certainly possible that Manafort engaged in conspiracy to undermine the election but nothing that Mueller has filed asserts that he did.

WASHINGTON — Representative Ilhan Omar, who has been battling charges of anti-Semitism for weeks, apologized on Monday for insinuating that American support for Israel is fueled by money from a pro-Israel lobbying group — a comment that drew swift and unqualified condemnation from fellow Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The mea culpa by Ms. Omar, a freshman lawmaker from Minnesota and one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, came after a day of bipartisan outrage over her tweet Sunday night asserting that support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins baby,” a reference to hundred-dollar bills.

“Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes,” Ms. Omar said in a statement released on Twitter, about an hour after Ms. Pelosi and the entire Democratic leadership publicly chastised her for engaging in “deeply offensive” anti-Semitic tropes.

i hate jews and especially israel and so im probably voting for her now, i live in minesota.
i didnt vote for her last time but i will now
this apology was fake anyways. probably only is doing it to save face, its not like she suddenly feels differently
>dispute the facts

How do you refute the claim that Republican support for Israel is "all about the Benjamins"? It's a statement of opinion, a generalization, and speculative consignment of motive. There's nothing to discuss but the character of the opinion, which just happens to be a flagrant antisemitic trope.
AIPAC does not give money to campaigns. That's why it is factually incorrect
Of course not. The just "advise" their members to give the money to campaigns.

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump's suggestion address that lawmakers abandon their investigations of the administration is a "threat" that has no place in Congress.

Pelosi told reporters Wednesday "the president should not bring threats to the floor of the House."

Trump in his State of the Union address Tuesday said "ridiculous partisan investigations" could harm the economy.

Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer showed no sign of relenting on the congressional investigations of the Trump administration and Russian interference in the elections.

Schumer in Senate floor remarks Wednesday asked what Trump's "afraid of?"

If Trump wasn't afraid of something "that might be there that he did that was wrong" he would "shrug his shoulders," Schumer said, and let the investigations go forward.

>All parties are full of bullshit liars.
Yeah. Centrist. You're not unique. You're not enlightened. You sound like an underaged idiot with no interest in politics, and it's easier for you to play the "le all le politicians are le bad" card than it is for you to admit that you aren't actually interested in politics. At all. Go fuck yourself with rake, and take a step down from your bullshit. Thank you.
This is for you centrist. He's also making jokes, laugh already.
Pelosi was later quoted as saying she was going to "do him like I did Sam Hyde," and that "[Trump] had better stop running his mouth if he knows what's good for him." An ominous cracking sound was heard, it is unclear if this sound came from Pelosi's knuckles.
>I am so obsesses with paritisan hackery that it makes absolutely no sens to me why someone would want to dynamically vote based upon their authentic opinion as to who is the better candidate
If they decide to surrender what power they have on the basis of a misinformed opinion of helplessness and encourage fellow citizens to do the same, thereby propagating the malaise of governmental ineffectiveness and corruption that plagues this country?

Many nations snubbing meet

A number of countries are either pulling out or sending low-level delegations to the Warsaw summit aimed at curbing Iran’s growing influence in the Middle East.

Some countries are snubbing a US-sponsored meeting about Iran's role in the Middle East.

But Poland, the host country, says Iran will not be the only item on the agenda.

They say delegates will also discuss the presence of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS), and the war in Syria.

>the presence of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS)

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sixty percent of Americans oppose major new construction of walls along the U.S.-Mexico border -- the goal behind President Donald Trump's budget showdown with Democratic leaders that led to a record 35-day partial shutdown of the federal government.

The shutdown, which ended Jan. 25, and the political battles that preceded it over the past several months have had little apparent effect on public opinion about a wall. Fifty-seven percent opposed major new construction of walls seven months ago, a statistically insignificant three-percentage-point difference from the current number.

Gallup trends offer several signs that immigration has risen in prominence as a national issue in the past year:

Twenty-one percent now name it as the country's most important problem. That is the second-highest total for immigration in the 80-year history of the question, behind last July's 22%.

Seventy-eight percent in November identified immigration as an extremely or very important issue to them in the midterm elections, ranking it among the top three issues in importance to the public.

Perhaps as a result of the heightened political attention given to the issue of immigration, the percentage saying they feel strongly one way or another about expanding the walls has increased since last June's poll -- from 58% to 65%. More of that increase has come in strong opposition (five points) than in strong support (two points).

A former United States Air Force counterintelligence agent was charged with espionage after she defected to Iran and helped it target her former colleagues, the authorities said.

In an extraordinarily detailed indictment made public on Wednesday, prosecutors disclosed that Monica Elfriede Witt, 39, gave the Iranians the code name and mission of a secret Pentagon program involving American intelligence operations.

According to the indictment, she was working with members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The elite paramilitary group is known to carry out terrorist operations around the globe and has been sanctioned by the American government.

Prosecutors described how Ms. Witt provided a copy of her biography and job history in August 2013 to a person with ties to Iran’s intelligence services. That same month, she moved to Iran and, while living there, officials provided her with housing and computer equipment. Prosecutors said that she searched Facebook accounts for Americans and created “target packages” for Iran against American counterintelligence officials.

Prosecutors said that she worked for the Air Force from 1997 until 2008 and then worked as a contractor. As a counterintelligence officer, she was deployed to locations in the Middle East.

Democratic leaders are showing their power level causing Nazis to flock to the democratic party for openly embracing antsemitism

several democratic elected officials so far this year have tweeted openly antisemitic statements and widely known democratic party affiliated activist groups are taking antisemitic stances

Statements made vary from accusing jews from using money to run US foreign policy to groups citing the protocols of the elders of zion and saying “Jews are shadowy figures with a lot of money, top-level access, ready to betray the nations of our residence (and our neighbors) in service of an unseen authority.”

Tell that to his voters. Some of them literally think that giving money to Israel will bring upon the end times and then they get insta-teleported to heaven where they can laugh down at all the brown people.
