William Barr testifies in what is meant to be a straightforward DOJ budget hearing in front of a Senate Appropriations subcommittee. Senate Democrats, however, are expected to be interested more about the 400-page Mueller report on Russian collusion within the 2016 campaign.

  1. It has been nearly 100 days since Democrats took control of the House of Representatives. It has also been almost 100 days under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi.
    A press conference was held to commemorate the event and was there that House Republican leader from California, Kevin McCarthy gave his thoughts on what Pelosi had accomplished.
    “We are three days away from the 100-day mark from Democrats holding a majority of the House. And so far, they’ve managed to sum up in three words: radicalism, resistance, and resolutions,” McCarthy shared.
    Few words have ever rung so true, yet McCarthy wasn’t done there.
    In a rhetorical question to Democrats he asked, “What have you accomplished? Name me one problem you have solved because the direction of radicalism, resistance, and resolutions is not the direction Americans want. America deserves better.”
    The scalding remarks are aptly appropriate as House GOP Whip Steve Scalise chimed in with, “If you look at the first 100 days, it’s been 100 days of failures.”

  2. At what point is somebody going to step in?
    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) trivialized the deadliest terrorist attack in U.S. history in a recent speech she gave at an event for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — which the United Arab Emirates has designated as a terrorist organization.
    When speaking about the 9/11 terror attacks, which killed approximately 3,000 American citizens, Omar described the attacks as “some people did something.”
    “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said.
    Omar was met by hundreds of protesters when she attended the March event in Los Angeles, who expressed strong disapproval of her use of anti-Semitic tropes and promotion of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
    Omar responded to the “very interesting” pro-Israel demonstrators by saying: “I don’t think any of them realize that people like myself and many of the people in this room could care less about what they have to say.”
    Here are some of the responses that Omar’s comments received online:
    Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX): “First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something’. Unbelievable.”
    Allie Beth Stuckey: “This is FAR WORSE than any misconstrued and decontextualized comments Candace has made, and yet will receive a polite nod and a golf clap from leftists.”
    Paul Sacca: “‘Some people did something’ sounds like a bake sale, but it does not really sound like a terrorist attack that killed 3,000 people and altered the NYC skyline forever…”
    Gad Saad: “Am I allowed to post this snippet featuring Noble @IlhanMN without also criticizing Israel or in the spirit of fairness I should always criticize Israel when pointing out the love, peace, and tolerance of Noble Ones?”
    It is worth noting that Omar has taken a lot of heat in the past after she advocated for leniency in the sentencing of men who were convicted of trying to join ISIS.
    Last week, Omar urged the Trump administration to try to get a senior member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood (MB) released from prison in Egypt.
