The ‘Democratic Majority for Israel’ is a hate organization

I argued in my last article that the hatred coming from the Jewish community is not confronted because it comes in the guise of fighting antisemitism. Ten days ago we saw another example of this hatred that has no name. The target was once again Michigan congresswomen Rashida Tlaib. So, what did Tlaib do this […]

Facebook Look to Conservatives for Help Amid Democratic Coup D’etat of the Company

Facebook is hoping that Republican lawmakers will come to their rescue amid an unprecedented coup d’état from Democrats who have vowed to completely take-over and reshape the Big Tech giant.

For Democratic leaders, and Tom Cotton too, Lapid is a rock star who says nothing about Palestine

The big news on our issue in Washington is that Benjamin Netanyahu is gone, and Joe Biden and the Israel lobby are celebrating. Yair Lapid, the foreign minister and alt-PM in the new Naftali Bennett government, came to Washington this week and was treated like a rock star by the lobby. Here at last is […]

Yang officially breaks with Democratic Party

“Breaking up with the Democratic Party feels like the right thing to do because I believe I can have a greater impact this way,” he wrote. “Am I right? Let’s find out.

Opinion | The Roots of Democratic Disarray

In shaping their sweeping social spending legislation, with a putative price tag of $3.5 trillion, President Joe Biden and the Democratic congressional leaders have argued that this is what the voters chose last November. And polls do show broad support for universal pre-K, lower prescription drug prices and expanded health care, paid for by higher […]

Here are the German democratic challenges that political parties haven’t discussed | View

The rest of Europe eagerly awaits the outcome of the German federal elections on September 26th, as they are significant for the future politics of the entire continent.

The most powerful network of Democratic donors has a new president

“We are facing existential threats, our democracy is under attack from within,” she said. “The role of the Democracy Alliance and the role of donors now is to invest deeply and urgently and strategically in addressing the crisis we face in our democracy and in building this long-term progressive infrastructure that we need.” Shifman succeeds […]

Biden stresses unity, democratic values in Shanksville

Biden mentioned that he took photos with boys who were wearing Trump hats at the firehouse. “Are we going to, in the next four, five, six, ten years, demonstrate that democracies can work, or not?” he said, before voicing disappointment at the tenor of current political debates, including “the stuff that’s coming out of Florida.” […]

RNC chair lambasts term ‘birthing person’ in rebuke of Democratic leadership

Her invocation of this language is part of a larger movement by the Republican party to politicize transgender-inclusive policies. Across the country, Republican-led state legislatures have moved to ban transgender student athletes from sports after President Joe Biden supported expanding rights for transgender people. Policies like these have become a rallying point for conservatives as […]

Democratic governors tie themselves to Biden

This time, Democratic governors are betting that an ARP-fueled economic comeback, combined with potentially billions more in infrastructure and jobs spending still to come, can supercharge their state economies and their chances for reelection. “We’re very happy about the rescue plan, and we want to give credit where credit is due,” Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers […]

Israel’s attack on Gaza diminished its support among Democratic voters

A new University of Maryland Critical Issues Poll shows that Israel’s recent attack on Gaza hurt its reputation among Democratic voters, particularly young Democratic voters. Almost 70% of Democratic voters, who know where their local lawmakers stand on the issue, now say that their congressional representatives support Israel more than they do. 3,379 American adults were surveyed […]

Democratic “Majority” for Israel?

DMFI vs. Nina Turner In this newsletter I have repeatedly wondered why Democratic Majority for Israel (a lobbying group that’s very name declares a majority of Democrats support the country) refuses to mention foreign policy in their attack ads. If love for Israeli military aid and hatred of the BDS movement are such popular positions […]

Democratic Majority for Israel doesn’t think there’s a Democratic majority for Israel –and neither does Shontel Brown

Nina Turner is leading in the Democratic race for the open House seat in Ohio. The primary election is August 3, and polls show the former Sanders spokesperson and state senator up by “double digits,” says the Hill. Turner has the endorsement of the Plain Dealer and the Cleveland mayor, per news reports, as well […]

The Democratic Party Establishment is out to stop Nina Turner, and a pro-Israel lobbying group is helping

It’s probably no surprise that the Democratic Party Establishment has all hands on deck trying to stop Nina Turner from being elected to the House of Representatives. The outspoken national co-chair of Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, and congressional candidate in Ohio’s 11th district, is obviously not a fan favorite among centrists and her opponent […]

Some Democratic lawmakers condemn Silwan demolitions, but most remain silent

Israel has begun demolitions in the al-Bustan area of Silwan. Most Democratic congress members have largely ignored the destruction, but a small group of progressive House members have criticized Israel actions on Twitter with many using the #SaveSilwan hashtag. “Homes are next in Silwan, East Jerusalem. 1,500 Palestinians—including 900+ children—face displacement right now,” tweeted Illinois […]

Israel is ‘considerably weakened’ — as BDS finds a home in the Democratic Party

The news from the political convulsion in Israel is that power has shifted. Israel is no longer dictating terms to the United States, the United States is in a position to dictate terms to Israel. So much is clear from a number of events. The recent Israeli onslaught on Gaza ended after 11 days and […]

New York’s mayoral race remains a tossup after final Democratic debate

After six months of endless zoom forums, erratic polls and a truncated campaign season, the race remains a tossup less than a week out. With ranked-choice voting throwing more uncertainty into the process, the Democratic nominee, who is all but certain to win the general election, will likely not be named until well after Tuesday’s […]

Trump’s grip on GOP sparks fears about democratic process

Seven months after Election Day, former President Donald Trump s supporters are still auditing ballots in Arizona s largest county and may revive legislation that would make it easier for judges in Texas to overturn election results. In Georgia, meanwhile, the Republican-controlled state legislature passed a bill allowing it to appoint a board that can […]

Phil Murphy took on New Jersey’s Democratic machine. Now he needs it to win.

Murphy will be the first name on the Democratic Party line in the June 8 primary, heading up machine-backed tickets and, in some cases, running directly opposite progressive-backed candidates pushed into “ballot Siberia.” The attorney general Murphy appointed, Gurbir Grewal, has sided against progressives in a lawsuit they filed this year seeking to eliminate that […]

Ex-NBA Player Kwame Brown Slams Jemele Hill for Her ‘Little Democratic Talking Points’

Former NBA player Kwame Brown took aim Wednesday at former ESPN talker Jemele Hill for a tweet in which he felt she was calling him “violent.” In reply, he slammed her for mindlessly using her “little liberal, democratic talking points” to tear down black men. For those unaware, Brown has been engaging in social media […]

The Democratic Party’s Big Mistake ─ Support for Israel

Those who fear the end of democracy take no heed to a fundamental cause of the threat – Israel. President Biden has an opportunity to separate the Democratic Party from the worldwide chauvinists, who believe in their superiority and that might makes right. Followers of Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer found guilty of murdering […]

Over 100 Democratic Party leaders demand White House recognize dignity rights in Palestine instead of another hollow Eid greeting

May 13, 2021 Dear President Biden: In lieu of flowers or condolences for martyred Palestinian children or even a White House Eid celebration, we request the United States recognize dignity rights worldwide. A first step in recognizing our humanity would be to not allow a policy of mass slaughter in the sacred Islamic month of […]

Jared Moskowitz, Florida’s Democratic ‘master of disaster,’ steps down

The tweet pinned to the top of Jared Moskowitz’s feed is a 46-word rebuke. All 46 words are “MASKS,” and Moskowitz, Florida’s youthful director of emergency management until last Friday, acknowledged that a prime target of the tweet was his boss, Gov. Ron DeSantis. “The governor and I, you know, disagree on masks,” Moskowitz, a […]

Inside the Democratic strategy to expand voting rights state by state

To be sure, not all Republican legislatures are opposed to expanding voting access. In Kentucky, Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear signed a sweeping electoral reform law passed by the Republican-controlled legislature that broadens early and absentee voting and establishes recount procedures. More broadly, Republicans push back against criticism from Democrats that they’re engaged in a scheme […]

Canada’s New Democratic Party passes motion to sanction Israel

At the New Democratic Party’s (NDP) convention last week, party members overwhelmingly passed a motion to sanction Israel.
