Congresswoman Accused of 'Anti-Semitic Slur' after Calling Trump 'Motherf***er'

It's absurd that the first bill during the shutdown is legislation which punishes Americans who exercise their constitutional right to engage in political activity. In an interview, she noted that the four components of S.1 - the bill also expands sanctions on Syria's Assad regime and strengthens the U.S. -Jordan alliance - were under consideration in the previous Congress, when Republicans controlled the Senate, the White House and the U.S. House of Representatives. "As Democrats increasingly turn on Israel, Jewish liberals, many of whom have already purposely muddled Jewish values with progressive ones, are attempting to untether Israel from its central role in Jewish culture and faith for political expediency", Harsanyi writes. He has said he is willing to allow the shutdown to continue until a concession is granted.

Another democratic socialist, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., joined Sanders, suggesting that Republicans supporting the bill have forgotten their loyalty to US citizens and are instead representing Israel's interests.

"These are bills that the Republican Senate passed 92-6", Hoyer said. The shutdown's resolution has been hampered in part by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who are resistant to compromise on a spending bill that allocates any new funding for the wall. He also will attend a Senate Republican lunch on Wednesday to put pressure on Democrats to cut a deal and to shore up wavering Republicans who are anxious the President doesn't have a successful strategy to end the shutdown.

"This is the mentality of these people: They hate Israel", she says bluntly.

Opponents say Rubio's measure infringes on free speech. Sen. "We won't be doing pieces".

The bill appears unlikely to move forward after Democrats took a stand against passing any legislation before the government is reopened.

Only three other Republican Senators have said the shutdown should end: Susan Collins, Cory Gardner, and Thom Tillis. "We could reopen much of government where there's no dispute over issues involving certain departments like Ag, Transportation, Housing, and Interior".

TSA acknowledges that more screeners are calling in sick at some airports, including Dallas-Fort Worth International. NATCA President Paul Rinaldi said controllers often must work overtime and six-day weeks at short-staffed locations.

Rubio, along with Senator James Risch (R-Idaho), last week reintroduced pro-Israel legislation that did not get passed in the last Congress.

Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, the third-ranking Democrat in leadership, said she expects her party's protest to extend to other legislation, as Democrats try to pressure Trump to end the shutdown, now in its 18th day. The strategy will be successful if at least 41 of the 47 senators in the Democratic Conference vote against motions to proceed, which require 60 votes to formally begin debate on a bill.

While announcing the legislation, Gibbs and his co-sponsors laid the blame for the shutdown squarely on the shoulders of their Democratic colleagues.

Eight Republicans joined 232 Democrats to support the bill.

"And if boycotting #Israel is constitutionally protected, then boycotting companies that boycott #Israel is also constitutionally protected".

Some congressional Republicans have voiced their opposition both to the use of an emergency declaration and to the use of military funding to build a wall on the southern border.
