Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Sunday praised Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) for her anti-Semitic language, saying she has “nothing to apologize for.”
Farrakhan, who has a long history of using anti-Semitic language, including comparing Jews to “termites” last October, delivered remarks at his movement’s Saviours’ Day conference in Chicago. During the two-hour speech, he talked about the need to break up Democracy before he went on to praise the 102 women in Congress, specifically Omar.
He began by referencing Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D., Mich.) “impeach the motherfucker” line about President Donald Trump, calling it “funny language” and went on to talk about widely-condemned tweets from Omar. The congresswoman was pressured to apologize last week after a tweet was widely condemned as anti-Semitic, receiving backlash from Democratic colleagues, Jewish organizations and even Chelsea Clinton.
“Ms. Omar from Somalia – she started talking about ‘the Benjamins’ and they are trying to make her apologize. Sweetheart, don’t do that. Pardon me for calling you sweetheart, but you do have a sweet heart. You sure are using it to shake the government up, but you have nothing to apologize for,” Farrakhan said. “Israel and AIPAC pays off senators and congressmen to do their bidding, so you’re not lying, so if you’re not lying. Stop laying down. You were sent there by the people to shake up that corrupt House.”

The ecstatic sailor shown kissing a woman in Times Square celebrating the end of World War II died Sunday. George Mendonsa was 95.
Mendonsa fell and had a seizure at the assisted living facility in Middletown, R.I., where he lived with his wife of 70 years, his daughter, Sharon Molleur, told The Providence Journal.
Mendonsa was shown kissing Greta Zimmer Friedman, a dental assistant in a nurse’s uniform, on Aug. 14, 1945. Known as V-J Day, it was the day Japan surrendered to the U.S.. People spilled into the New York City streets to celebrate the news.
Mendonsa planted a kiss onto Friedman, whom he had never met.
The photo by Alfred Eisenstaedt was first published in Life magazine and became one of the most famous photographs of the 20th century. It’s called “V-J Day in Times Square,” but is known to most as “The Kiss.”
Several people later claimed to be the kissing couple. It was years before Mendonsa and Friedman were confirmed to be the couple.
Mendonsa served on a destroyer during the war and was on leave when the end of the war was announced. He has said Friedman reminded him of nurses on a hospital ship whom he saw caring for wounded sailors.
“I saw what those nurses did that day and now back in Times Square the war ends, a few drinks, so I grabbed the nurse,” Mendonsa said, WPRI-TV reported .
Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions regularly and casually used shocking racist sentiments while serving in President Donald Trump’s cabinet, according to a new book written by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
In his memoir—titled The Threat—McCabe paints a picture of an attorney general who struggled to understand the workings of government, was unable to stay on top of his busy schedule and blamed almost all the country’s problems on immigration, Washington Post reporter Greg Miller wrote in his review of the book.
In one particularly shocking exchange, Sessions reportedly told McCabe the FBI was a better organization when “you all only hired Irishmen.” Drawing on archaic and offensive stereotypes, he clarified, “They were drunks but they could be trusted. Not like all those new people with nose rings and tattoos—who knows what they’re doing?”
The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment on the reports.
Sessions’ views on race were described as “reprehensible” and constantly aimed to link immigration to crime, Miller reported. The attorney general “believed that Islam—inherently—advocated extremism,” while discussions about specific criminal suspects always began with the question, “Where’s he from?” quickly followed by, “Where are his parents from?”
Not only was Sessions outwardly ignorant about ethnic minorities, he also apparently struggled to keep up with the most basic demands of his job. The former Alabama senator—whom Trump reportedly once branded “mentally retarded” and a “dumb Southerner”—had “trouble focusing, particularly when topics of conversation strayed from a small number of issues.”
McCabe also noted that electronic tablets used to deliver the daily presidential brief to Sessions came back with no sign that he had even entered the passcode to view the important document. He not only failed to read other intelligence reports but also got confused between classified material and information he read in newspaper clippings.
Miller wrote, “McCabe’s disdain for Trump is rivaled only by his contempt for Sessions.” The memoir grabbed headlines Thursday after McCabe revealed on 60 Minutes that he authorized an investigation into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia after the president fired former FBI Director James Comey.
Trump quickly hit back at McCabe, calling him “a disgrace to the FBI and a disgrace to our Country.” The president also claimed McCabe was pretending to be “a ‘poor little Angel’ when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax—a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey.”

America’s greatest statesmen did not think that national holidays were merely about family dinners, watching fireworks, or getting a three-day weekend.
These occasions, to the contrary, were needed to encourage all citizens to together raise their gaze above the enthrallment of their private lives, so as to see or imagine something greater than themselves and worthy of their admiration.
Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July, first conceived by our Founders, are illustrative.
Thanksgiving, as George Washington writes in his Thanksgiving Day proclamation, should instill in citizens gratitude to our nation and our creator, thereby asking citizens for a moment to acknowledge our frailty, our dependence on higher powers, and the imperfection of our understanding.
Thanksgiving, therefore, is a holiday that restrains democratic self-satisfaction and pride.
The Fourth of July, by contrast, celebrates courage and manliness, the kind required to defeat a great empire and to found a community devoted to political liberty. It reminds citizens of public spiritedness on behalf of our ideals, and that our ideals require of us sacrifice and courage.
Thus, these two holidays celebrate starkly contrasting spirits—that of subordination and that of assertion, both healthy aspects of the republican character.
What we today call “Presidents Day” is in fact Washington’s birthday. Just like a republican people must on occasion be reminded of the need for manly assertiveness and modest gratitude, so too must they be reminded of examples of human greatness.
First instituted as a federal holiday in 1879, this day ought to celebrate Washington, not an abstraction called “presidents.” There is no meaning in celebrating “presidents” generally, and for this reason, the holiday today has no real content, being viewed as merely another day off work.
To confuse James Buchanan for Washington is to conflate copper and gold.
During Washington’s life, he deservedly became one of the most famous men in the world. His remarkable courage and prudence had, despite great odds and at great peril, carried to victory our 13 colonies against the most powerful empire on earth. The weight of this task fell upon his shoulders.
In times of peace, moreover, Washington’s self-possession and equanimity—by contrast to the brilliant but somewhat impulsive advisers surrounding him—meant that the country’s fate could be responsibly entrusted to him. The example of his control over his passions, his judgement, and devotion to the common good made him the new model of republican greatness, which until recently filled the American imagination for generations.
Indeed, so clear were his virtues that both Federalists and Anti-Federalists reached unanimous agreement about Washington’s worthiness to be president, despite their immense disagreements on almost everything else.
Today, examples of human greatness are needed perhaps more than ever. In the hurly-burly of the crass and silly images in popular culture, film, and music, such examples are absent.
In our books and textbooks, individual greatness is often tacitly denied by teaching that vast cosmic forces—like economic forces, or technological advancement—rather than individuals, cause events. And when individuals are the cause, they are often characterized merely as oppressors.
Our experiences of these things combine to instruct us in vulgar aspirations, enervating fatalism, or hatred of greatness.
Revering Washington and living with his example is not just a matter of arbitrary, antiquarian taste. In fact, reverence for human greatness, as Tocqueville observes, is among the things most needed in democracy.
One of the many reasons for this is to counterbalance the overwhelming power of a democratic majority. Tocqueville writes:
He will relapse within a year.

Tax return submitted by a New Jersey resident The IRS returned a tax return to a man in New Jersey after he apparently answered one of the questions incorrectly. In response to question 23:
“Do you have anyone dependent on you?”, the man wrote: “2.1 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million crack-heads, 4.4 million unemployable scroungers, 80,000 criminals in over 85 prisons, plus 535 idiots in Washington, and the entire group that call themselves politicians”.
On the returned form, someone at the IRS had attached a Post-it Note beside the question with an arrow and the words: “Your response to question 23 is unacceptable.”
The man sent it back to the IRS with his response on the bottom of the Post It Note: “Who did I leave out?”

Ann Coulter had some harsh words for President Trump on Friday after he said that she was “off the reservation” during a Rose Garden press conference during which he declared a national emergency at the southern border to spend $8 billion for border barriers.
“Ann Coulter, I don’t know her. I hardly know her. I haven’t spoken to her in way over a year,” said Trump
This was great news for Coulter, a former die-hard supporter of Trump, who was more than happy to be disassociated with the president whom she originally predicted would win the 2016 US election long before he won the GOP primary.
“Thank God he’s relieved me of any responsibility for what he’s been doing,” said Coulter on KABC‘s Morning Drive on Friday. “That was the biggest favor anyone could do [for] me today.”
She said as long as Trump is President she will NEVER retire!! If you don’t think she means that then just take a look at that “skowel” on her face!!!…………Papa Mike

After nearly a two-month hiatus while recovering from lung cancer surgery, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg returned to the Supreme Court on Friday to participate in several meetings.
Fox News reports that a court spokesperson said Ginsburg was working in her chambers on Friday and “will participate in the in-person closed-door conference Friday morning.”
The 85-year-old Ginsburg missed oral arguments on the bench for the first time since being appointed by President Clinton just a little over 25 years ago. In late December of last year, Justice Ginsburg underwent surgery for lung cancer. The Supreme Court said at the time she underwent a “pulmonary lobectomy” resulting in the removal of two malignant nodules.

A Canadian man whose real last name “Assman,” was deemed “unacceptable” for a personalized license plate has taken it a step further and emblazoned the back of his truck with a giant design of the offending plate.
Dave Assman (pronounced “Oss-man), who lives in the province of Saskatchewan, said the denial upset him, but “I’m not one of those guys to take offense to it.”
Saskatchewan Government Insurance, or SGI, is the review board which manages vehicle registration and approves or denies personalized requests. Assman said he filed an appeal Tuesday but SGI rejected it the same day – a decision he anticipated, CBC reported.
Assman posted a photo Tuesday of a giant decal which bears his last name and spans the truck’s tailgate. The decal is styled after a typical Saskatchewan license plate.
“Just as Sgi anticipated me appealing my denial I also anticipated them refusing my appeal !” read his now-viral post. “I could have got a plate for the front but I really wanted a vanity plate on the back of my truck ! Thank you eternally etched.”
