(Breitbart) – Senator Bernie Sanders admitted on Thursday night that he would raise taxes on middle-class American families to pay for his big government programs.
“Yes. They will pay more in taxes but less in health care,” Sanders said.
Asked the first question of the second night of Democrat debates, Sanders at first seemed to dodge the inquiry about whether he would raise taxes, focussing on his promises to extend Medicare to all Americans and provide free college through state colleges. He admitted that he would raise taxes when moderator Savanah Guthrie pointed out that he had not actually answered her question.
“Senator Sanders, I’ll give you ten seconds to ask the very direct question,” Guthrie said. “Will you raise taxes for the middle-class in a Sanders administration?”
That got Sanders to say yes.

Flashback: Home Depot Co-Founder: Bernie Sanders Is The “Enemy Of Every Entrepreneur” That’s Ever Going To Be Born (Video)
The co-founders Bernie Marcus and Ken Langone joined Neil Cavuto on Monday to discuss the Trump economic miracle and the dangerous Socialist platform of the Democrat Party.
Bernie Sanders came out today with another “free” gift by promising to cancel $1.6 trillion in federal student loan debts.
The Home Depot co-founders believe if Bernie Sanders were president when they tried to open their business in 1978, the home-improvement retailer may never have existed.
When asked about Bernie Sanders’ plan to forgive student loan debt Bernie Marcus said, “[Bernie Sanders] is the enemy of every entrepreneur that’s ever going to be born in the country and has been born in the past.”
Langone added, “If the people in America today … if they want to know what the future holds for them following Bernie Sanders, go to Cuba, Venezuela, Russia, Eastern Europe. Guess what? It doesn’t work.”
This was an incredible interview with two American business icons.
(Big League Politics) – The Murdoch-owned Fox News network has decided to shelve Judge Jeanine Pirro’s television show this week, after Pirro questioned Islam’s compatibility with the U.S. Constitution in a segment on Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar, an avowed anti-Semite.
Variety reports: “Fox News Channel replaced tonight’s broadcast of Jeanine Pirro’s weekly program with a repeat episode of its documentary series “Scandalous,” just days after the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news network said it condemned remarks the outspoken host made about Minnesota Democrat Ihan Omar.”
Fox News did not choose to provide an explanation to Variety for their report.
This should tell you everything you need to know about the Fox News corporation.
We watched as Fox News has blatantly lied about our reporting. We watched Shep Smith go to the Left of Hugo Chavez. We listened to hours of garbage pointless manipulated talking points from anti-Trump former colonels and many other grifters who shill their books. But it’s time to wake up to what Fox News is doing. They are not on the American people’s side.
Here is Laura Loomer’s incredible article for Big League Politics the other day regarding the Pirro controversy. Maybe Fox News doesn’t care, but a whole lot of conservatives and independents out there do.
“We do not negotiate with terrorists” used to be a unanimous position held by both sides of the political arena in America, but sadly, Fox News is objecting and has indeed negotiated with terrorists in their crusade against free speech and honest dialogue about Islam in America.
Fox News was a hot topic of discussion this week after the radical Left and their Muslim Brotherhood counterparts decided to carry out their own form of jihad against Judge Jeanine Pirro, one of Fox News’s most popular hosts. On Saturday evening during her opening statement, Pirro sparked controversy after she logically questioned whether or not Ilhan Omar’s use of the hijab suggests that she is in favor of Sharia Law.
“She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it,” Pirro said. “Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”
In case you were wondering whether or not wearing an hijab means one is pro-Sharia, the answer is yes.
According to Islamic law, devout Muslim women are to cover themselves, or face punishment for violations of Sharia Law.
Despite the claims of many Muslim women that it is “their choice” to wear a hijab, the truth of the matter is that according to Sharia —the “Sacred Path of Islam”, wearing head coverings for women is “Obligatory” in most of the Muslim world.
In Chapter “w” Section 23 of “Reliance of the Traveller”—the sharia manual for Muslims, it states that the hijab is obligatory under Sharia. “A woman must not reveal anything except her hands and her face when outside the home and on the street.”
In other words, Pirro was speaking the truth and nothing but the truth.
Following the segment, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) wrote a letter to Fox News, calling for Pirro to be fired for what they called “Islamophobia”.
But, what is Islamophobia?
It’s the biggest hoax ever created. It’s a tool used by jihadis in suits to further their process of civilization jihad and subversion as outlined in the “Explanatory Memorandum”, the Muslim Brotherhood’s blueprint for an Islamic takeover in the United States.
#CAIR Islamophobia Watch: These Are The Types Of Islamophobia Fox News Is OK With
But to say Pirro’s comments do not reflect Fox News’ position is far from the truth. For years, she has… https://t.co/AEHiv0ViWg
You might be thinking, “Wow! Muslims have a plan to takeover the United States and impose Sharia Law? Gee that sounds like a conspiracy theory”, but it is the furthest thing from a conspiracy, and you can read all about it here.
The long term plan of the Muslim Brotherhood and their allies is outlined in the Explanatory Memorandum, a document discovered by the FBI in a 2004 raid in Annandale, Virginia in the home of a senior Muslim Brotherhood official. The Explanatory Memorandum explains step by step how Muslims will implement their take over of America.
After the Department of Justice found CAIR conspired with terrorist organizations like HAMAS and the Muslim Brotherhood, the FBI severed ties with CAIR, saying it “does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner.”
“In August of 2004, an alert Maryland Transportation Authority Police officer observed a woman wearing traditional Islamic garb videotaping the support structures of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and conducted a traffic stop. The driver was Ismail Elbarasse and detained on an outstanding material witness warrant issued in Chicago in connection with fundraising for Hamas.The FBI’s Washington Field Office subsequently executed a search warrant on Elbarasse’s residence in Annandale, Virginia. In the basement of his home, a hidden sub-basement was found; it revealed over 80 banker boxes of the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.
One of the most important of these documents made public to date was entered into evidence during the Holy Land Foundation trial. It amounted to the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan for the United States and was entitled, “An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.” The Explanatory Memorandum was written in 1991 by a member of the Board of Directors for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America and senior Hamas leader named Mohammed Akram. It had been approved by the Brotherhood’s Shura Council and Organizational Conference and was meant for internal review by the Brothers’ leadership in Egypt. It was certainly not intended for public consumption, particularly in the targeted society: the United States. For these reasons, the memo constitutes a Rosetta stone for the Muslim Brotherhood, its goals, modus operandi and infrastructure in America. It is arguably the single most important vehicle for understanding a secretive organization and should, therefore, be considered required reading for policy-makers and the public, alike.”
This is factual information, but according to CAIR, speaking truth about Islam is Islamophobic, which is why you probably have never heard about the Explanatory Memorandum.
A phobia is defined as an irrational fear.
Is it irrational to fear those who want to kill you? No, it is not.
As stated in Chapter 9 verse 5 of the Quran, “And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush.”
The Quran, which is the leading text in Islam, explicitly calls for the killing of non-Muslims.
It is entirely normal and rational to fear someone or something that openly states they want to murder you.
But, Fox News clearly is more scared of being labeled as “Islamophobic” than using logic and facts to dismiss CAIR.
CAIR, which describes itself as a “the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights organization”, is nothing but an Islamic terrorist organization. CAIR is HAMAS.
But, don’t take it from me, take it from Fox News, which decided to side with CAIR all why knowing that CAIR is a terrorist organization.
Over the years, Fox News has published several reports about CAIR, documenting the fact that the group is a dangerous Islamic terrorist organization that even the FBI decided to cut ties with them.
In 2014, Fox News published a report saying,
“The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was one of 82 groups around the world designated terrorist organizations by the United Arab Emirates, placing it in the company of Al Qaeda, Islamic State and others. While CAIR has previously been linked to Hamas, it has held hundreds of meetings with White House officials on a wide range of community issues and has sought to present itself as a mainstream Muslim organization.”
In their own words, Fox News admits that CAIR “has been previously linked to Hamas” a terrorist organization that explicitly states their goal of killing Jews and eradicating Israel.
Along with being classified as a terrorist organization in the United Arab Emirates in 2014, CAIR has been labeled as a Muslim Brotherhood entity by the United States Justice Department and was found by a federal judge, the U.S. Attorney Generals office, and the Fifth Circuit Court of appeals as having direct ties to Hamas. On July 1, 2009, U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis upheld CAIR’s designation as a co-conspirator, saying there was “ample evidence” linking CAIR to Hamas.
Hamas has also been classified as a designated terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department and is listed as a co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation HAMAS terror funding trial in 2008, which is the largest terrorism financing case in U.S. history. In the Covenant of Hamas, which outlines the goals and motive of Hamas and its members, it states that one of its main goals in the destruction of Israel.
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”
Fox News now wants to pretend like they never published these reports as they throw Pirro under the bus and assist in CAIR’s jihad against free speech and critics of Sharia.
Pirro’s segment was critical of Ilhan Omar, and asked the question as to whether or not the Congresswoman is pro-Sharia.
It is worth noting that in August 2018, Omar was asked on camera to condemn HAMAS, and she refused.
WATCH ILHAN OMAR AND RASHIDA TLAIB REFUSE TO CONDEMN HAMAS:
Being in favor of an Islamic terrorist organization like HAMAS and ISIS logically means that one is pro-Sharia, given that Sharia Law is Islamic Law, which is the doctrine followed by these Islamic terrorist organizations, both of which Omar has refused to condemn and herself has shown sympathy towards.
But, don’t take it from me. Take it from Fox News, which itself has said these same things. On February 16, 2019, Fox News published an article detailing how Omar’s district in Minneapolis, Minnesota is now the ISIS terrorist recruitment capitol of the world. Omar herself is Somali and wrote a letter to a judge to show leniency toward a group of Minnesota men accused of trying to join the Islamic State terror group.
CAIR Minnesota joins the Twitterverse! Please join us on Aug 12, for the 5th Annual Ramadan Dinner w/Imam Siraj Wahhaj
But, again, don’t take it from me. Take it from Fox News which itself on January 26, 2019 reported on Ilhan Omar’s sympathies toward ISIS and her refusal to condemn the men who tried to join ISIS and kill Americans in the name of Islam.
“The nine Minnesota men were facing decades in prison after being accused in 2015 of making plans, including buying fake passports, in an effort to travel to Syria and fight for ISIS, which was at its peak level of activity and held territory in Syria and Iraq. Omar, who was then a Minnesota state representative, was part of a group that sent letters to Judge Michael Davis urging him to give shorter sentences.” Fox News, January 26, 2019
“Despite its good standing in Washington, CAIR has had its share of controversy. In 2007, the organization was named along with 300 others as a co-conspirator in a case regarding funding to extremist group Hamas. Its critics have long accused the group of having ties to groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. Terrorism experts applauded the UAE’s designation, saying CAIR is an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.” –Fox News, November 17, 2014
Again, those aren’t my words. These are words published by Fox News nearly 5 years ago.
If Fox News is publishing stories that legitimize terrorism experts claims that CAIR was found to have supported HAMAS and is “an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood”, and if Fox News has reported that Omar has sympathy for ISIS, why did Fox News listen to CAIR and issue an apology on their behalf?
It is worth noting that CAIR endorsed Omar’s campaign for Congress, has given her donations to fund her campaign, and will be hosting Omar as their keynote speaker in Los Angeles at a CAIR banquet on March 23, 2019.
“Such an open and un-American expression of religious bigotry should be rejected by any media outlet seeking even a modicum of credibility. Jeanine Pirro should be fired, and Fox News should apologize to its viewing audience,” CAIR national executive director Nihad Awad said in a statement on Sunday.
Nihad Awad is the last person on the planet who should be giving anyone in America lessons about “credibility”.
The fact that Fox News caved to Awad and CAIR’s complaint is concerning, especially upon a close examination of Awad and CAIR’s history as Anti-American terror sympathizers.
As the executive director of CAIR, Awad is constantly accusing his opponents and enemies of “Islamophobia” while remaining silent about acts of Islamic terrorism in America and acts of Jew hatred committed by his own associates and members of the Muslim community.
Not only has Awad refused to condemn many acts of Islamic terror, but he and his organization have actually defended jihadis who themselves are involved in plots of terror, or related to those who have planned acts of Islamic terrorism against the United States.
But don’t take it from me. Take it from Fox News.
On August 8, 2018, Fox News published a report titled, “Man arrested at ‘extremist Muslim’ New Mexico compound was training kids to commit school shootings: documents”.
According to the report,
“The father of a missing 3-year-old who was arrested at a New Mexico compound linked to “extremist Muslims” last week was training children to commit school shootings, court documents filed on Wednesday revealed.Prosecutors allege Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, was conducting weapons training on the compound, where 11 children were found hungry and living in squalor. They asked Wahhaj, who appeared in court on Wednesday, be held without bail.”
Siraj Ibn Wahhaj is the son of Imam Siraj Wahhaj, and he has been charged with terrorism. On Thursday March 14, 2019, as reported by Fox News,
“The residents of a makeshift New Mexico compound — where 11 emaciated children were found during an August raid — were charged by federal authorities Wednesday with terror, kidnapping and firearms offenses. Jany Leveille, 36, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hurjah Wahhaj, 38, Subhanah Wahhaj, 36 and Lucas Morton, 41, were charged “with federal offenses related to terrorism, kidnapping and firearms violations,” the Department of Justice said in a press release. In the original indictment, Leveille was also charged with “possessing firearms and ammunition as an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States.
“The superseding indictment alleges a conspiracy to stage deadly attacks on American soil,” U.S. Attorney John C. Anderson said in a statement. “These allegations remind us of the dangers of terrorism that continue to confront our nation, and the allegation concerning the death of a young child only underscores the importance of prompt and effective intervention by law enforcement. I commend our law enforcement partners for their ongoing diligence and outstanding work in identifying and disabling imminent threats of targeted violence.”
Ilhan Omar is friends with Siraj Ibn Wahhaj’s father, Imam Siraj Wahhaj, and has spoken at the same CAIR events as him.
On CAIR’s website, they describe Siraj Wahhaj as, “one of the most admired Muslim leaders in America.” In other words, CAIR is saying that in their opinion, one of the most admirable Muslims in America is an imam in New York City and co-conspirator in the World Trade Center bombing whose son and at least two other family members were arrested and charged by federal investigators for kidnapping and plotting terrorist threats against the United States of America.
Siraj was not only named in court documents as an alleged “co-conspirator” in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, but he often calls for the killing of innocents in the name of Islam.
Siraj is documented as once saying,
“If Allah says 100 strikes, 100 strikes it is. If Allah says cut off their hand, you cut off their hand. If Allah says stone them to death, through the Prophet Muhammad, then you stone them to death, because it’s the obedience of Allah and his messenger—nothing personal.”
“Nothing personal.” That is what Siraj, who is Linda Sarsour’s “mentor” and “favorite person” had to say about Islamic terrorism. According to Siraj, it’s ok to stone people to death and chop people’s hands off, if Allah commands it. Wahhaj has also been caught on audio recording calling for the killing of homosexuals.
Where does Linda Sarsour play into this?
During Ilhan Omar’s campaign, Omar campaigned with Linda Sarsour, and even invited her as one of her guests to the Congressional swearing in ceremony in January…AFTER the founder of the Women’s March asked Sarsour to step down for here blatant anti-Semitism. Sarsour stated that “Jews should not be humanized” and called for jihad against president Trump.
But, again. Don’t take it from me. Take it from Fox News.
Last week amid calls for Congress to pass a resolution against anti-Semitism following Omar’s anti-Jewish comments, Sarsour and Awad stormed the halls of Congress with other CAIR employees in support of Omar. Sarsour is a close associate of Awad and has also been a speaker at numerous CAIR events.
In other words, Ilhan Omar, who has access to classified information as a member of the US Foreign Affairs Committee, is closely tied to Sarsour who called a man who is a co-conspirator in the World Trade Center bombing and whose son was recently found to have been plotting a terrorist attack at an Atlanta hospital her “mentor” and “favorite person”.
It gets worse.
Siraj Wahhaj is a close friend of Nihad Awad, and often speaks at CAIR events and holds fundraisers for CAIR. Even more concerning, Siraj is known for saying, “It is my duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the U.S. Constitution with the Quran.”
I stand with my dear brother and friend, Imam Siraj Wahaj, in this difficult time for him and his family. He has been a visionary and courageous leader for Muslim-Americans for decades. pic.twitter.com/vmSCkrCIPc
In fact, it’s the same dream shared by the founder of CAIR!
Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad are the founders of CAIR. Awad is documented as saying, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Now, let’s re-visit what Pirro said.
“She’s (Ilhan Omar) not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it,” Pirro said. “Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”
In CAIR’s own words, and in the words of their “dear friend” Imam Siraj Wahhaj, Sharia law is incompatible with the United States Constitution, which is why the founder of CAIR himself called for the Quran to be the highest authority in America.
Based on these facts and the evidence presented, what exactly is Fox News apologizing for, and what are they reprimanding Pirro for saying?
Following Pirro’s remarks, Fox News issued the following statement, “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”
On Monday, Omar tweeted and thanked Fox News, tweeting that, “No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.”
But, it should, because CAIR, the same group that has endorsed Omar, and the same group that is calling for Pirro to be fired, has never expressed an issue with their own founder openly stating that he and his associates want Islam to replace the US Constitution.
Is Fox News condemning the truth? In their own words, Fox News said Pirro’s views don’t reflect those of the network, yet they embraced the views of CAIR and its associates. Is Fox News saying their views align more with those of a designated Islamic terrorist organization which they have referred to as a terrorist organization in several of their own published reports?
The facts speak for themselves, and Fox’s apology is disturbing on many levels. Fox’s actions demand answers to the following questions.
Why is Fox News taking advice from the director of a terrorist organization who is “dear friends” with a co-conspirator in the World Trade Center bombing, whose son was recently arrested by the FBI after he was training young kids to be school shooters and planning a terrorist attack at a US hospital?
Are Judge Jeanine’s truthful statements about Islam and Ilhan Omar more offensive than acts of terrorism against the United States of America? Are they worse than being a member of a terrorist organization or advocating on behalf of men who tried to join ISIS?
When did Fox News get to a point where they are now taking advice from an Islamic terrorist organization which Fox itself has reported on as being a terrorist organization?
Fox News has decided to cave to the Left-Wing outrage mob, they reprimanded Pirro, and they gave a public apology at the request of CAIR, which has now further empowered a designated Islamic terrorist organization and their network of supporters.
Fox News, which has for many years advertised itself as a pro-America, Pro- Judeo Christian Conservative network is now being thanked by some of America’s biggest enemies, which include anti-America, anti-Christian, and anti-Jewish zealots and jihadists like Linda Sarsour, Louis Farrakhan, Ilhan Omar, and CAIR.
Fox News negotiated with an Islamic terrorist organization that wants Judge Jeanine Pirro to be fired because she spoke truth about Islam and Sharia Law.
But, don’t take it from me. Take it from Fox News.
