Sex, Lies and Videotapes

Question of the day

What do extramarital sex, lies and politicians have in common? Answer: They’re all immoral. Especially damning are the videotapes of politicians in the Epstein library.

 

Politics of the day

Are you getting as tired of all the name-calling in Washington as I am? Every day somebody is calling out somebody else.  Seems like everyone in Washington must be a racist. What is the average person to make of it?

The latest is all the fuss over Democratic congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar not going to Israel. Tlaib and Omar started the fireworks by holding a press conference to tell the world that they were being treated unfairly. Tlaib said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s move to bar her and Omar from entering Israel was unprecedented.  Never mind that Obama, himself, once banned a member of Israel’s Knesset from entering the U.S.

Note: Of course, Tlaib and Omar never mentioned that they are supporters of the anti-Semtic, anti-Israel BDS movement which was condemned by Congress and that their trip to Israel was organized by a Palestinian group which is also a supporter of BDS.

HBO host Bill Maher, a progressive Democrat himself, responded by saying that “BDS is a bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class.” Maher continued: “Let me read Omar Barghouti, one of the cofounders of the [BDS] movement. His quote: ‘No rational Palestinian … would ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’ So that’s where that comes from, this movement. Someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow, this side never gets presented in the American media.”

Tlaib responded by suggesting a boycott of HBO.

Maher fired back that, “But here’s the thing, the house voted 318 to 17 to condemn the #BDS movement, including 93% of Dems.  Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party?”

 

Commentary

At the press conference, Omar said that Israel was not a democracy.  Slight correction.  Arabs living in Israel are considered Israeli citizens with rights equal to Jewish citizens. Arabs vote in Israeli elections and are represented in the Israeli Knesset and on the Israeli Supreme Court, just like in a democracy. Omar also said that Israel is occupying Palestinian lands.  This lie has been repeated by others ad nauseum over the years.  You need to understand that there is no such thing as a country of Palestine.  Never has been.  The lands that Omar is referring to were ceded by Jordan to Israel as a result of the peace treaty which ended the 1967 Six Days War.  The lands have been in Israeli hands ever since.

However, I think that Dr. Qanta Ahmed, a Muslim scholar, made the defining statement with respect to this issue. It took a lot of guts because her statement is politically incorrect in today’s political climate. This is what she had to say about Tlaib and Omar:  “What you are seeing is full-blown Islamist propaganda. These are professionals victim-mongering women who unfortunately have been elected to Congress but are using every tool in the playbook of the Muslim Brotherhood … they are using Islamic tactic to invert reality….”

 

Epilogue

The one thing about Tlaib and Omar that Dr. Ahmed didn’t mention is that they are also agents of the Deep State (along with many other members of Congress).  It’s a dirty little secret that you’re not supposed to know about…but, of course, now you know.
