'It's a Rag': Nebraska Lawmaker Compares American Flag to Swastika

Friday 22:45 GMT

"When you show a way to persuade Jews to sanctify and worship the swastika, when you show me that I'll come up here and stand while you all hypocritically pretend that rag is something that it definitely is not."

"I think I speak for most of us that have worn the uniform, it rips our heart out to hear someone say that they refer to the flag as a rag," Brewer said. "Because for those of us that have brought home those that we've lost, it's hard to ever refer to the flag as a rag because you have to fold it and you have to get it to the parents, and that's awful hard to do."

Thursday 03:19 GMT

Voters will have a choice between the job-killing socialism offered by Ocasio-Cortez, and President Trump’s free-market approach that has helped make America into the greatest country on Earth.

The Green New Deal is now overshadowing real bipartisan legislation that would actually reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Sen. John Barasso, R-Wyo., introduced the Utilizing Significant Emissions with Innovative Technologies Act (USE IT Act) which offers $50 million in financial incentives for carbon-capture research and infrastructure, such as innovative systems that take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and smokestacks.

Should Bernie Sanders' fundraising worry rivals?

Thursday 19:05 GMT

What this week indicates, however, is that Mr Sanders will have the time and resources to make his case to American public.

Beto O'Rourke, who may end up running for president, raised $38.1m in three months last year in his bid to win a Texas Senate seat - besting any quarterly mark set by Mr Sanders in 2015.
