Roseanne Barr: BDS Has “Infected” The Democratic Party
Comedian Roseanne Barr claimed, “We have Hamas in Congress” in reference to the congressional freshman class of 2019, which includes anti-Israel congresswomen and outspoken BDS proponents Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News’s Deborah Danon, Barr said BDS has “infected” the Democratic Party.
Barr rejected recent remarks made by two top Jewish Democrats, Reps. Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Ted Deutch (D-FL), who maintained that the Democratic Party will remain steadfast in its support of Israel and that Omar and Tlaib are the only two people to express such views within the party.
“There’s a lot more than that,” she said.
“The Democratic Party will eventually move to [being] pro-BDS,” Barr added.
According to the funnywoman, “BDS is another incarnation of Jew-hating” that has been going on for centuries.
“It’s a boycott of Jewish business worldwide,” she said. “Nobody knows that because they think it’s about the ‘occupation,’ which doesn’t exist of course.”
Barr maintained that since the BDS movement does not limit itself to boycotting Israeli companies and institutions, but expressly supports the boycott of companies that have any dealings with Israel – a large percentage of which are naturally Jewish-owned – the boycott is comparable to that of Nazi Germany. “So it’s a Nazi boycott on Jewish business in shorthand,” she said.
Missing Info In Mueller’s Indictment Of Roger Stone
Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller opens his office’s indictment of Roger Stone, a former associate of President Donald Trump, by citing information that relies on an outside company’s independent assessment that Russia hacked the servers of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
The indictment immediately implies that WikiLeaks released emails stolen by Russians who allegedly hacked the DNC servers, going on to document alleged communication between Stone and WikiLeaks in part using intermediaries.
The indictment does not charge Stone with any attempts to collude with WikiLeaks or Russia, instead charging him with witness tampering, obstructing an official proceeding and making false statements to investigators and to the House intelligence committee.
The DNC famously refused to allow the FBI to access its server to verify the allegation that Russia carried out a hack during the 2016 presidential campaign. Instead, the DNC reached an arrangement with the FBI in which a third party company, CrowdStrike, conducted forensics on the server and shared details with the FBI.
As this reporter previously documented, CrowdStrike was financed to the tune of $100 million from a funding drive by Google Capital.
Google Capital, which now goes by the name of CapitalG, is an arm of Alphabet Inc., Google’s parent company. Eric Schmidt, the chairman of Alphabet, has been a staunch and active supporter of Hillary Clinton and is a longtime donor to the Democratic Party.
Hillary Clinton Attacks “False Accusations” And “Baseless Assaults”
In a missive sent to supporters, Hillary Clinton utilized what she claimed were “false accusations” and “baseless assaults” against the controversial Clinton Foundation in order to build up the foundation’s email list.
In a blast email sent via her Onward Together organization, Clinton asked users to also sign up for the Clinton Foundation email list, arguing that “people with an axe to grind have continued to try to undermine its work by attacking them and making false accusations.”
Clinton did not specify exactly which alleged “false accusations” and “baseless assaults” against the Clinton Foundation she was referring to.
The foundation faced controversy over its acceptance of multi-million dollar contributions from foreign governments while Clinton was Secretary of State, including donations from Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar. Some donations were not disclosed despite an agreement with the State Department to do just that.
One point of contention revolved around $2.35 million donated to the Clinton Foundation by the family foundation of the chairman of Uranium One, the firm in which the Russian state-owned Rosatom company took a majority stake in a deal approved by Clinton’s State Department.
