Controversial Democratic incumbent Ilhan Omar of Minnesota’s 5th congressional district is up for re-election this year, but she will have her work cut out for her in the primary against not one but three formidable opponents.

Following a narrow loss in the 2022 primary, former Minneapolis City Council member Don Samuels announced on Sunday that he would challenge progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) in the upcoming primary.

While speaking with WCCO, a local radio station, moderate Democrat Samuels declared his intention to run for Omar’s congressional seat. Omar narrowly defeated the former city council member by two points in 2022. Samuels claimed on Sunday that Omar is “beatable” after his close loss.

A House Republican representing part of New York City says she has "smoking gun" proof that city officials are trying to help get illegal immigrants registered to vote, something the city has staunchly denied. 

Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., announced on Sunday that she had obtained a copy of a contract between New York City’s Department of Social Services and Homes for the Homeless, a nonprofit that has been contracted to build emergency migrant shelters as the border crisis depletes the city’s resources.

In an appendix of that contract, a copy of which was obtained by Fox News Digital, the city appears to require contractors to provide copies of voter registration forms for migrants at their shelters, Malliotakis said.

GREAT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE FBI.

"[Your information is] too precise, too complete to be believed. The questionnaire plus the other information you brought spell out in detail exactly where, when, how, and by whom we are to be attacked. If anything, it sounds like a trap."

FBI response to the top British spy, Dusan Popov (code named "Tricycle") on August 10, 1941, dismissing Popov's report of the complete Japanese plan for the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Pearl Harbor: The Verdict Of History by Gordon Prange, appendix 7 published in 1986. Based on records from the JOINT CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack, Nov 15, 1945 to May 31, 1946.

GREAT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE FBI PART 2.

In 1964, accusations that the song "Louie Louie" as recorded by The Kingstons contained obscene lyrics led to a two year FBI effort to analyze the recording to determine what was actually being sung ... before someone mentioned that the lyrics were on file at the US Copyright office.

The Democrats and their idiot cheerleaders in the media have long been known for exhibiting textbook cases of projection when accusing Republicans of almost anything. 

In my most recent column, I examine the new fever-pitch false narrative about the "alarm" that Donald Trump will end free elections and trample on civil rights if he returns to the presidency. Honestly, even if he did go that route, he would have a difficult time one-upping the current occupant of the White House. 

To anyone paying attention to reality, Joe Biden and his rogue goon squad Justice Department would prefer that half of the country be locked up. It's easier to get an election to go their way if the voters who oppose them are legally indisposed. They've been working feverishly to make sure that the Republican frontrunner is legally unavailable, after all. 

In a time when our southern border is being besieged by various and sundry criminals and college campuses are overrun by protesters who support the most heinous terrorists in the world, it would be nice to think that the formerly trustworthy people at the Federal Bureau of Investigation were focused on some of them. Alas, this is the Biden FBI, and it is singularly focused on any threats to Democratic election victories.

A bill to block the implementation of federal EV mandates passed the House Rules Committee 9-4 Monday.

The Choice in Automobile Retail Sales (CARS) Act will now go to a floor vote on Tuesday.

The EPA proposed aggressive tailpipe emissions standards earlier this year that would, if finalized, would require 67% of new cars and small SUVs to be electric, along with a large portion of heavy-duty vehicles, by 2032.

Reps. Tim Walberg, R-Mich., and Andrew Clyde, R-Ga., along with more than a dozen House Republicans, introduced the CARS Act, which would prohibit regulations that mandate the use of any specific type of technology or limit availability of new vehicles based on engine type.

The rapidly growing debt of the U.S. federal government has hit another milestone, topping more than $100,000 in debt per person.

While the U.S. population and the U.S. national debt are large numbers that are difficult to calculate, the rough debt estimate and rough population estimate end up at about $100,000 of federal debt per person in the U.S.

The U.S. Census population clock estimates the U.S. population at nearly 336 million. Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury Department estimates the national debt is nearly $34 trillion.

THE ANTI-TRUMP ALARM GOES OFF. Around this time in 2015, some in the political commentary class had a collective realization: Donald Trump could win the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. A freakout of sorts ensued, although many remained confident that Hillary Clinton would defeat Trump in the 2016 general election. An even larger freakout occurred on the night of Nov. 8, 2016.

Now we are seeing a repeat of the events of late 2015. The Iowa caucuses are six weeks away. Trump has an overwhelming lead in national polls — 47.3 percentage points over his nearest competitor, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls. Trump's leads in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina are 29.7 points, 27 points, and 30.5 points, respectively, although the polling in those states is getting old, with the most recent polls measuring opinion about three weeks ago. But the basic fact is: Trump is far, far ahead. He is the favorite to win the GOP nomination.

That's certainly alarming to many in the political commentary world. Even more alarming has been a spate of polls, too many to be ignored, showing Trump defeating President Joe Biden in a head-to-head general election matchup. Put all those surveys together, and it is freakout time again. Here are four examples.

The best-case scenario for one of the most common COVID-19 interventions may be that it has no measurable effect on infection, recent studies suggest.

A systematic review of studies of mask mandates for children, published Saturday in the British Medical Journal's Archives of Disease in Childhood, found "no association" with infection or transmission in 16 of the 22 observational studies and "critical" or "serious" risk of bias in the six countervailing studies. It got the attention of Elon Musk, owner of X, formerly Twitter.

Self-reported SARS-CoV-2 infection was higher the more often people said they wore masks, according to a Norwegian study accepted for publication Nov. 13 in the Cambridge University Press journal Epidemiology and Infection.

Congress at the urging of the Biden administration agreed in 2021 to spend $7.5 billion to build tens of thousands of electric vehicle chargers across the country, aiming to appease anxious drivers while tackling climate change.

Two years later, the program has yet to install a single charger.

States and the charger industry blame the delays mostly on the labyrinth of new contracting and performance requirements they have to navigate to receive federal funds. While federal officials have authorized more than $2 billion of the funds to be sent to states, fewer than half of states have even started to take bids from contractors to build the chargers — let alone begin construction.

Former Central Kentucky FBI agent, Michael Van Aelstyn, pleaded guilty on Monday to federal charges related to illegally taking guns from an FBI storage office, according to court records.

Van Aelstyn, 45, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice and possessing an unregistered firearm. He was initially charged with possession of a firearm made in violation of the National Firearms Act, possession of an unregistered firearm, and unlawful transfer of a firearm to an out-of-state resident.

The charges stem from an incident where Van Aelstyn allegedly removed two illegal firearms from a suspect's home, transported them to an FBI office for storage, and later took them to his residence.

Terrified civilians are trapped inside the Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza as Israeli forces have encircled the medical facility, a senior official at the Ministry of Health tells Al Jazeera.

More than 100 people have been killed in strikes close to the facility, the ministry said on Tuesday.

“The Israeli occupation forces have laid siege to the hospital from all sides … We are targeted by gunfire and artillery shells,” said Munir al-Bursh, director-general of the Health Ministry in Gaza, speaking from inside Kamal Adwan.

“Patients, injured and those who took shelter in the hospital are gripped with fear; overwhelmed by horror,” he said.

One of the most deeply disturbing aspects of Israel’s war against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip which haunts me and gives ammunition to the right-wing media is the proliferation of rape stories emerging from the 7 October attacks. As a feminist, it has always been my initial instinct to believe every single woman who’s ever said she’s been raped or abused by a man. I suppose it was inevitable that friends in the media berated me for not condemning Hamas after the militarily-spectacular attacks launched on the occupation state of Israel from Gaza.

When news began to emerge a week later that Israeli women at the music festival and nearby kibbutzim had been raped, I admit I hunkered down and tried to write this article. I hated myself for even questioning the harrowing narratives that emerged and cussed the Zionist spin doctors and odious mouthpieces of the Israeli military who blatantly lied about various aspects of the Hamas operation.

Israel has a very long history of deceit

However, in my defence, Israel has a very long history of deceit and, in a rare moment of clarity, Benjamin Netanyahu spoke the truth when he admitted lying without a hint of irony at such honesty. Justifying his blatant lies to the world, he quoted the Bible: “As has been said, ‘by way of deception, thou shalt do war”, and that’s how we operate.”

Can you see my dilemma? It’s rather difficult not to question anything and everything that the Israeli prime minister says, especially because he is responsible for many atrocities and war crimes committed against the Palestinians which provide some context to what Hamas did. Netanyahu was quoting a verse from Proverbs, which is also said to be the motto of the Israeli intelligence service Mossad; he makes America’s own serial liar, the late Colin Powell, look positively angelic.

So it’s with a heavy heart that I must now report that an internal Defense Department list of the weapons has leaked (reproduced below).

The West has pledged to do whatever it takes to support Ukraine while also returning militaries to a war-ready status, but it is defense contractors in South Korea, Turkey and Israel which are reaping many of the early deals.

Arms makers in those countries, where governments sustain military investment and production pipelines to maintain their own security, made early gains in the months following the February 2022 full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russia, according to the latest analysis of weapon sales and military services revenue from the world’s top 100 contractors carried out by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).
