VIDEO - After the House voted 407-23 in favor of H. Res. 183, Alex Newman and Christian Gomez of The New American break it all down. The resolution sets the stage to buckle down on "hatred," including anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim discrimination, which is specifically pointed out in the text. The resolution came about in response to controversial tweets by MN Rep. Ilhan Omar against Israel support that was deemed "anti-Semitic." But unlike the resolution to condemn Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) which condemned him by name, Omar was never called out. There are other controversial elements of this resolution too. Is criticism of U.S. government aid to Israel anti-Semitic? Is it irrational fear of Islam (Islamophobia) to be concerned about some of what is written in the Koran? Newman and Gomez discuss. 

With all their rhetoric against hate in all its forms, today's Democrats are showing that they are willing to put up with it in their own party.

Congressional Republicans, egged on by President Trump, are introducing legislation to create a paid family leave program in hopes of winning suburban women’s votes.

Under the guise of mandating “universal background checks,” Congress is working on a gun-control plot (H.R. 8) that would ban all private sales of firearms and essentially create a national gun registry. Among other concerns, gun-rights advocates warned that the scheme would enable future confiscation of firearms by government while making countless law-abiding citizens into criminals. Whether the radical bill will become law remains unclear. But with the Senate likely to vote it down and the White House threatening a veto, gun-rights groups are cautiously optimistic while gearing up for a fight just in case.

A congressman has introduced a bill to repeal the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force, naming it after the late Representative Walter Jones.
