Jihad-Rep Rashida Tlaib Retweets Blood Libel Against Jews

Geller Report - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 21:53

A PLO official accused Jewish Israelis of kidnapping and murdering an 7 year old Palestinian boy. This was totally false, of course. However, Rep. Rashida Tlaib wasted no time in re-tweeting this lie. Once Tlaib realized that this story was false, she promptly deleted the tweet like the coward that she is. Naturally it would be too much for Speaker Pelosi to demand Tlaib apologize, for re-tweeting this anti-Semitic blood libel to her almost one million followers. This is why anti-Semitism is being normalized in the United States. #Jexodus!

I am always extremely cautious in criticizing US elected officials. However when an American elected official retweets an unfounded blood libel against Jewish Israelis, I cannot remain silent. Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib just did.

Rashida Tlaib Retweets Blood Libel Against Israeli Jews

By Jewish Press, January 25, 2019:

US Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib lost no time Saturday retweeting the post of Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, a Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official who wrote, “The heart just shatters. The pain is unbearable. No words.” while retweeting the words of a fake activist who created a modern-day blood libel against the Jews of Jerusalem.

“KIDNAPPED & EXECUTED” wrote “realSeifBitar” whose account has since been suspended by Twitter. “7 year old #Palestinian child Qusai was kidnapped by a Herd of violent #Israeli settlers, assaulted & thrown in a water well was found this morning frozen to death in Beit Hanina, #Jerusalem after #Israeli forces assaulted search teams”

Three layers of what for now appears to be a blood libel. From a faceless activist to a Palestinian government official to a US Congresswoman to a global audience of 898,000 followers. pic.twitter.com/spGwJAp5RT

Ashrawi, a seasoned politician with a reputation for false anti-Israeli statements, at least had the sense to issue a half-baked retraction as soon as it became clear the tweet was a fake. “My apologies for re-tweeting something that’s not fully verified,” she tweeted. “It seems that the news of his being kidnapped is not certain.”

Of course, he was not kidnapped, but a full retraction and the truth would have been too much for Ashrawi.

Tlaib, with more than 898,000 followers, must have also gotten the message, somehow, because her tweet was deleted soon after.

Not surprisingly, Tlaib has offered no apology for her actions, however. In the interim, her nearly one million in the Twittersphere had access to this vicious new hate against the Jews in Israel, because it was picked up and retweeted by anti-Semitic British politician George Galloway.

Pompeo Lashes Out At Reporter After Interview On Ukraine, Ambassador

Newsy - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 21:31

Watch Video

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lashed out at a member of the media who asked about his treatment of former Ukrainian Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.

On Friday, Pompeo sat for an interview with NPR's Mary Louise Kelly. In it, she started with questions about U.S. policy toward Iran and then pivoted to ask about Ukraine and the ambassador, whose removal has been spotlighted in the impeachment case against President Donald Trump. It was the topic change that seemed to frustrate Pompeo. 

"You know, I agreed to come on your show today to talk about Iran. That's what I intend to do," Pompeo said.

During the interview, Kelly told the secretary that she communicated with his staff the night before and confirmed that Iran and Ukraine questions were both fair game. 

After the 9-minute recorded interview, Kelly says Pompeo "glared" at her before walking out of the room. Then she says one of his aides asked her to leave her recorder behind and invited her into another room where Pompeo was waiting. 

"He was not happy to have been questioned about Ukraine. He asked, 'Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?' He used the 'f' word in that sentence and many others," Kelly said on NPR's "All Things Considered."

According to Kelly, the aide did not say the side conversation was off the record. 

But in a statement released Saturday, the secretary said Kelly agreed to keep the "post-interview conversation" off the record. In reporting it, he says, she violated "the basic rules of journalism and decency." He wrote, "This is another example of how unhinged the media has become in its quest to hurt President Trump and this Administration."

Kelly said during the side conversation, Pompeo asked her to point to Ukraine on a map and she did. In his statement Saturday, Pompeo implied that she incorrectly identified Ukraine, writing "It is worth noting that Bangladesh is NOT Ukraine."

NPR's Senior Vice President for News Nancy Barnes responded, saying, "Mary Louise Kelly has always conducted herself with the utmost integrity, and we stand behind this report."

Report: U.S. Prepares to Evacuate U.S. Citizens from Wuhan

The U.S. government is arranging plans for a flight to evacuate Americans from the Chinese city of Wuhan on Sunday, according to multiple reports.

Wuhan is battling the deadly outbreak of the mysterious coronavirus that has infected over 1,000 people worldwide and is responsible for the deaths of at least 41 people so far.

Multiple major cities throughout China are on lockdown as travel restrictions have been imposed and officials have closed public spaces to limit the spread of the virus. The U.S. State Department has also ordered a Level 4: Do Not Travel advisory for the area.

The infection may start with common cold symptoms but can quickly develop into a fatal respiratory illness like pneumonia. 

So far, coronavirus cases have been diagnosed in Australia, France and the U.S.

BULL SCHIFF! Adam Schiff Tells Reporters, “I Don’t Even Know Who the Whistleblower Is” (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 21:11

Serial liar Adam Schiff laughably claimed on Saturday that he doesn’t even know who the whistleblower is.

President Trump’s defense team completely destroyed 3 days’ of Adam Schiff’s lies in just two hours.

GOP Senator John Barrasso said Schiff was so freaked out when Trump’s lawyers confronted him about his fake call and transcript that “the blood drained from Schiff’s face.“

The lashing was so bad that even CNN admitted President Trump is winning in the impeachment trial.

Schiff, Nadler and other House impeachment managers looked defeated as they gathered around the lectern to respond to Trump’s lawyers and take questions from reporters.

One reporter asked Schiff about Trump’s lead impeachment lawyer Pat Cipollone alleging Schiff coordinated with the whistleblower before the impeachment process began.

“It’s nonsense. I don’t even know who the whistleblower is,” Schiff said.

Interestingly, Schiff referred to the whistleblower as a “he” then quickly corrected himself and said “he or she.”

WATCH:

Recall, Adam Schiff hired his top aide Sean Misko (pictured below) just one day after Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Eric Ciaramella filed a whistleblower complaint against President Trump in August over his call to Zelensky alleging Trump threatened to withhold military aid from Ukraine unless they agreed to investigate the Biden crime family.

Mr. Ciaramella, however, ran to a Schiff staffer, who we now know to be Sean Misko, before he filled out the whistleblower complaint, a violation of House rules.

The only reason why Schiff is allowed to blatantly lie about not knowing the identity of the whistleblower is because the corrupt media allows him to lie with impunity.
