Soros-Funded Groups Leading BDS War Against Israel
In January, Israel released a list of 20 organizations supporting the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement whose members will be banned from entering Israel. Breitbart’s Aaron Klein reports that at least four of the six U.S. groups on the list receive funding tied to billionaire activist George Soros.
Among those on the list are the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), financed by Soros’s Open Society Foundations as well as his Tides Foundation; Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP); and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP).
Scores of other U.S. organizations that support the BDS movement are financed by Soros.
Kamala Harris Announces 2020 Presidential Bid

“I am running for president of the United States,” she told co-hosts George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts, “and I’m very excited about it.

Matthews Admits Trump Made Dems ‘Look Like Fools’
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews admitted on his show last week that President Trump made Democrats “look like fools” when he denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for an overseas trip the day after she suggested he delay the State of the Union address until the partial government shutdown is over.
Democrats “were in the bus heading to Joint Base [Andrews],” Matthews told the panel on his program. “He made them look like fools sitting in the Capitol in the driveway, basically trying to figure out what’s coming next. He caught them in the act as if they were sneaking out of town and made them look stupid.”
Matthews then called the move a “political dirty trick” on Trump’s part.
Sharpton Attacks Trump’s Rhetoric on Immigrant Children
Friday on MSNBC’s Deadline, host Al Sharpton said President Trump’s immigration rhetoric treats immigrant children as “murderers and rapists.”
Discussing the 2016 Republican presidential candidates allowing then-candidate Trump to take a hard line on immigration, Sharpton said, “Someone should have said, ‘Let me tell you something, I’m not accepting this new model where human beings are not human beings’… They should have called him out and said ‘No, America does not stand for this kind of dehumanizing people.
“We’re talking about children, children didn’t come here to do anything to anybody… Their parents brought them here for a better life, and they’re being turned into murderers and rapists. How dare you, and someone should say it to his face.”
Pope Knew Bishop Was Guilty of ‘Obscene’ Behavior
The Vatican received information in 2015 and 2017 that an Argentine bishop close to Pope Francis had taken naked selfies, exhibited “obscene” behavior, and had been accused of misconduct with seminarians, said his former vicar general, undermining Vatican claims that allegations of sexual abuse were made only a few months ago.
Francis accepted Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta’s resignation in August 2017, after priests in the remote northern Argentine diocese of Oran complained about his authoritarian rule and a former vicar, seminary rector and another prelate provided reports to the Vatican alleging abuses of power, inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment of adult seminarians, said the former vicar, the Rev. Juan Jose Manzano.
Schumer Calls Trump’s Offer ‘Hostage Taking’
Democrats rejected President Trump’s offer of a work-permit amnesty for one million registered migrants in exchange for 230 miles of new border wall, even though Trump’s offer angered his base by trading a DACA temporary amnesty for a wall.
Also, Trump did not ask for the reform of the many catch-and-release rules which allow the cartels to profitably smuggle hundreds of thousands of poor migrants into the U.S. labor market, welfare rolls, and U.S. K-12 schools.
Sen. Chuck Schumer rejected the compromise, saying, “offering some protections back in exchange for the wall is not a compromise but more hostage taking.”
