From your link.. "Let's review the facts."

First, Donald is a convicted felon. That is a very big deal, and it matters to a large percentage of the electorate regardless of what the corporate media says. He’s the first occupant of the Oval Office to be convicted of a crime and the crime for which he was convicted is an extremely serious one: interfering in the 2016 presidential election through the falsification of business records in order to cover hush money payments to Stormy Daniels with whom he had extra-marital sex.

Second, he was found liable for rape. Judge Kaplan, who oversaw the E. Jean Carroll trial, made that clear.

And, if the Supreme Court and his personal pocket judge Aileen Cannon weren’t doing everything in their power to run interference for him, he would also likely have been found guilty of stealing highly classified government documents and inciting an insurrection against his own government—because we saw him do both of these things.

In short, he is a criminal and a traitor.

I respect MaryT.. she's trying to help Democracy.

TY for illuminating exactly What's behind these

"protests".. can't blame "the Russians" this time.

On June 10, 2024, WOL co-organized a protest outside the New York City venue hosting the Nova Exhibit -- which commemorates the lives of the 364 people massacred at the Nova music festival by Hamas-led terrorists during the October 7 attack. Their protest featured antisemitic and dehumanizing messaging, glorification of the Oct. 7 assault, and explicit support for terror organizations.

Outside the exhibit, a protestor prominently waved large flags of US-designated terror organizations Hamas and Hezbollah. A sign reading "Zionists are not Jews & not humans" was also spotted at the WOL-organized protest.

Protesters outside the Nova exhibit were filmed shouting "long live the intifada" setting off flares and smoke bombs, harassing attendees, and making hand signals of inverted triangles, which have come to signify support for violent Palestinian so-called “resistance” against Israel. Red triangles first appeared in Hamas propaganda videos post October 7 showing attacks against Israeli military targets and Israeli soldiers.

snip----------------------------------

On the same evening of the June 10, 2024 protests, as a group of WOL-led anti-Israel activists were protesting on a New York City subway car, an individual among them was recorded yelling, "Raise your hand if you're a Zionist! This is your chance to get out!" as the crowd repeated these comments in unison.The NYPD released a "wanted" poster for the individual on June 19, 2024. In response, Kiswani doubled down on the offending rhetoric, tweeting: "We don’t want zionists [sic] in Palestine, NYC, our schools, on the train, ANYWHERE.

Bowman ousted an Incumbent Dem in 2020 and NOW

Hopefully it's his Turn to Be Ousted.

As for Hillary Clinton Endorsing George Latimer.. she's not the only one who's Endorsed Latimer for Congress.

Mondaire Jones condemns Bowman's Israel rhetoric, endorses George Latimer

By Marc Rod June 3, 2024

Former Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY), running to reclaim his former Hudson Valley seat in Congress, disavowed Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) on Monday over Bowman’s rhetoric about Israel since Oct. 7, and endorsed George Latimer, the Westchester County executive seeking to oust Bowman.

Jones told Jewish Insider the endorsement, first announced in The New York Times, was driven by Bowman’s rhetoric on Israel and the impact Jones said it has had on the Jewish community in Jones’ own district. Bowman’s and Jones’ districts border one another.

“This is about me standing up for the Jewish community,” Jones said. “I want to be very clear about that.”

NY-16: Stonewall Democrats endorse George Latimer for Congress

Congressional candidate George Latimer has received an endorsement from the Stonewall Democrats.

In five weeks, Latimer will face off against incumbent Jamaal Bowman in the Democratic primary to represent Congressional District 16, which includes White Plains, Rye, Yonkers, and other cities in Westchester County, as well as a portion of the Bronx.

The president the Stonewall Democrats, Gabriel Lewenstein, had this to say of Latimer: “George Latimer has been a staunch ally of the LGBTQ community throughout his distinguished career. From his early support of marriage equality, to his work banning conversion therapy in Westchester, to his support of trans rights and protections, George has proven his unwavering commitment to the dignity, respect, and equality of LGBTQ people.”

Founded in 1986, the Stonewall Democrats have championed LGBTQIA+ rights in New York for more than three decades, and their endorsement speaks to the candidate’s commitment to LGBTQ rights.

In 2000, while serving as chair of the Westchester County Board, Latimer authorized the Human Rights Law to codify sexual orientation as a protected class alongside race, religion, gender, and other demographics. For the past twenty-four years, he has continued to fight for LGTBQ individuals, most recently in his support of trans athletes.

NY-16: Jamaal Bowman finds himself in the crosshairs of a Black voter group

A national group arguing Rep. Jamaal Bowman is too radical to represent mainstream Black voters has joined the crush of critics spending big to keep the progressive from a third term, POLITICO has learned.

The National Black Empowerment Action Fund, founded by AIPAC veteran Darius Jones, plans to sink an initial half million dollars into a NY-16 offensive that includes directly interacting with Black voters and mobilizing local officials. More spending is anticipated as they raise more money.

“We could have stayed out of it, but the need was too great, the sense of urgency was too high,” Jones said in an interview.

Jones formerly served as the national African American constituency director for AIPAC, or the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. The National Black Empowerment Action Fund’s other senior adviser, Richard St. Paul, is also an AIPAC alum.

Bowman Makes Amends With Democratic Socialists After Rift Over Israel

Representative Jamaal Bowman of New York told members of the socialist group that his views on Israel aligned with theirs, and insisted that he never quit the group, despite earlier claims.

“I’m still a member,” the congressman said in a recording of the May 26 meeting that was obtained and verified by The New York Times. “I didn’t let my dues lapse.”

Pressed by members to explain why his office had publicly stated otherwise, he added: “Media has a tendency to talk about B.S., and not focus on the race. And we wanted to make sure we were focusing on our race at that time and getting re-elected.”

It was not the only time Mr. Bowman appeared to break with an earlier stated position related to Israel during the half-hour meeting. He told the D.S.A. members that he no longer supported funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system and that he would soon come out in favor of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, bending closer to the group’s positions.
