In The Headlights™
Dateline: SickAndTiredVille. Mark your calendars. This is the week when decency, on life support for a while now, finally died in the US House of Representatives. I don’t mean the resolution against President Trump. That kind of stuff is poisoned politics, an empty gesture that, unfortunately, has become SOP. It doesn’t get much attention from those with IQs above the double-digit horizon.
I mean the lack of meaningful response by Congress to the virulent anti-Semitic harangues of Ilhan Omar.
The Congresswoman has used this theme more times than she’s spent months in the House. But, Omar’s resolution this week in support of an economic boycott of Israel was the last straw in a haystack of vituperative hatred. The worst of it is that Congress has become so immune to vile accusations that it takes them in stride rather than taking this representative to task.
Oh, the House did pass a resolution condemning both anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim discrimination after one of Omar’s nasty anti-Semitic rants. But, it didn’t name her and has not deterred her. Her boycott resolution this week is a stick in the eye of her Dem colleagues who are busy protecting her from manufactured claims of xenophobic slurs by the Prez. They have encased her in a shield of invincibility where disagreements with her are dismissed as racism, one of the great intellectual dishonesties of our time.
Omar tries to wrap herself in American values, claiming her resolution advances Free Speech and likens the Israel boycott to boycotts of Nazi Germany. In fact, her goal is the destruction of the Jewish State, either militarily or economically, whatever works. Since Israel is the only U.S. ally in the Middle East, she’s acting in the worst interests of her adopted Country.
Omar dilutes the hideousness of the past in favor of a present where she uses her distortions to gain power. She is a disgrace.
Congress is even worse for not calling her out for what she is.

President Trump walked away from denuclearization talks with North Korea in Hanoi last night. Demands made by Noko’s war-loving, crazy dictator were unrealistic. As the President said, no deal is better than a bad one.
Meanwhile, Pakistan and India are at it again over the India-controlled section of Kashmir.
This week, they both claimed to have shot down military planes belonging to the other side. Both are threatening escalation, which is no laughing matter. They each have a nuclear arsenal including about 100 warheads and each has test fired nuclear-capable missiles.
Pakistan is now doing some nuclear saber-rattling to ward off a superior conventional attack by India.
The prospect of international nuclear war may not be as threatening to this Country as hearings going on in Congress this week. The Michael Cohen’s Spectacle of Self-Serving Slander is a prelude to impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
But last year, Cohen pled guilty to lying to Congress, among a host of other felonies. On Tuesday, he was disbarred from the practice of law. En route to serving a three-year prison sentence, he stopped by the Hill to chat up Congress again.
For our representatives to seek the unsubstantiated testimony of a felonious liar who has duped them in the past is an act of desperation. It is looking like the Mueller investigation will end with a whimper rather than a bang. So, Dems are casting about trying to find another source to feed the Trash Trump Frenzy. In Cohen, they caught a big, fat bottom feeder.
