Rep. Ilhan Omar, D., Minn., has accused the Trump administration of being "bigoted" amid reports that U.S. embassies have had requests to fly the rainbow Pride flag denied. June is Pride Month, promoting visibility for the LGBTQ community, and U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil, and Latvia made requests to the Trump administration to fly the flag on the official embassy flagpole in honor of Pride. According to NBC News, those requests were denied by the State Department.

Comments:

Does they gay pride flag fly in ANY Islamic country, Ilhan? From what I've seen the only things that fly are rocks, and occasionally people from tops of buildings.

OK. We'll run one test case by flying the Gay Pride Flag at the American Embassy in Somalia.

Yup. America will fly special flags over our embassies around the World for every special group that has a 'month'. I would like to know which month is STRAIGHT WHITE MALE month. Why the LGBTQ has a 'month' is unfathomable to me ? Just what makes them so special, other than they shove their philosophies in our faces all the time. They can do whatever they want to do, but don't make anyone else part of it. It is OFFENSIVE.

Martin Luther King (the rapist enabler) has only a single day of national glorification assigned to him. This proves that the homosex lobby is virulently racist and should be shunned.

Fly your rainbow flag over the embassy of ANY Muslim country and see how long it stays there. TRY to fly your rainbow flag in any Muslim country and enjoy your time in a cell before they stone you. Ilhan, I sometimes think you are even dumber than Occasionally-Cognizant because any American outside of Minneapolis can see clear through your BS.

And yet her own 'religion' demands that such people be violently murdered. Ya know, I'm starting to think that Miz 0mar's purpose in Congress is to help destroy the USA from the inside. And that she is more dangerous to the nation than ten thousand regular jihadis armed with guns, bombs and machetes.

There are hundreds of fraternal and social organizations that have flags. They don’t get to fly their flags over US Embassy's in Foreign countries. Only the National Flag of the USA should fly over US Embassies.

A clip unveiled by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) this week shows Michigan-based Shiite Imam Bassem al-Sheraa “educating” students on the role of “wife-beating.” According to the video, the imam tells the class at the Az-Zahraa Islamic Center in Detroit that when the Quran references such a physical act toward one’s wife, it is a "beating" that should be conducted without causing pain or any red markings; but as a reminder to the woman that she “misbehaved in cases when words (of admonishment) do not make her change her ways.”

An Australian man was accused of blowing up a couple’s car after they allegedly beeped at his partner while at a McDonald’s drive-thru in February. Ryan Sharp, 33, of the Illawarra region, and his 31-year-old partner allegedly stalked and harassed a couple for six weeks following the altercation at the fast-food joint. The couple had allegedly beeped at the man’s partner at the drive-thru after she swerved close to their vehicle. Sharp was not present at the time of the incident, but the woman reported the couple to police and wrote down their license plate number.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg knows firsthand the burden of six-figure student loan debt. He and his husband, Chasten, are far from alone, though, and their personal college indebtedness is helping to keep the issue on the national stage. With loans totaling more than $130,000, they are among the 43 million people in the United States who owe federal student loan debt. The debtors are so numerous and the total debt so high — more than $1.447 trillion, according to federal statistics — that several of the Democratic candidates have made major policy proposals to address the crisis.

Reading Jim Acosta's new book "Enemy of the People" is like watching a train wreck in progress, with passengers bracing for the inevitable crash. Friends and critics agree we have never seen a president like Donald J. Trump, whose disdain, even contempt and apparent hatred for many members of the press is almost daily on display. Acosta cites instance after instance when this President and many of his staff show that they are bent on interfering with the ability of reporters to bring the public an accurate account of the administration's stewardship.

Freshmen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants Congress to give itself a $4,500 pay raise next year. That would boost her salary to $178,500. And that’s not counting the many perks members of Congress get, all courtesy of taxpayers. But even that isn’t enough for the self-described socialist. AOC scoffed that a 2.5% bump in pay was “not even like a raise.” Before that, she grumbled that her income was merely a “living wage.” She also complained in a tweet that if lawmakers don’t get a raise, it “makes campaign finance reform *harder.* ” And it “increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open.” It makes one wonder if AOC understands

What's the matter with California? 28 replies
Posted by MissMolly 6/11/2019 5:34:45 AM Post Reply
California wants to look after its people, so it keeps expanding its social safety net. It also wants to welcome all comers and so embraces illegal immigrants and protects them in sanctuary cities. To see how this is working out, visit Skid Row in L.A. or neighborhoods in San Francisco or elsewhere where homeless camps are spreading. Caring for all Californians is made harder by the state importing as many non-Americans as possible. It's almost incredible, but also entirely characteristic, that California lawmakers have now decided to give healthcare free to nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants aged 19 to 25.
