Rep. Rashida Tlaib suggested boycotting "Real Time With Bill Maher" Saturday after he called the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement she supports a "bulls— purity test" during Friday's HBO show.
"Maybe folks should boycott his show," she tweeted Saturday. "I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom. This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn't work then and it won't now.".....Much More in link

Why couldn't those 2 join the other 40 members of congress on a fact finding tour to Israel the week before?

DNC votes down climate-focused debate
A committee within the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Thursday voted down a proposal for a debate focused on climate change.
The DNC's resolution committee voted against the measure, though a resolution calling for a climate debate could still be considered for a vote by the full committee Saturday as they continue to meet over the weekend.
The committee defeated the resolution in a 17-to-8 vote, according to the Mercury News.
The DNC has faced mounting pressure from environmental groups and some candidates, even as two climate forums hosted by other entities are planned for September.
“We are in a climate emergency. If we’re going to prevent the most catastrophic impacts of climate change, we need to know how those vying to become our next president are going to confront the fossil fuel industry and accelerate the transition to renewable energy from day one. Talking points and sound bites don’t cut it anymore,” Greenpeace said in a statement on the vote.
A number of candidates have heeded calls for a climate-focused debate, but one of the loudest of those voices, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, ended his presidential bid late Wednesday night.
Christine Pelosi, a member of the executive committee and the resolution committee, was one of three DNC members to introduce a resolution that called for a standalone climate debate.
Pelosi, daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), introduced the resolution Thursday that read: "Therefore, be it resolved that one of the first of several DNC Presidential Debates should be focused on Climate Change issues and solutions."
