    Surge Summary:  A pair of prominent Democrats are terribly busy trying to clean up messes they’ve created via their tweeting:  far-Left activist Neera Tanden, a choice for Joe Biden’s administration, and anti-Semitic Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). No comment so far from the “President Elect” or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    Another of Joe Biden’s nominees is running into major opposition.  Neera Tanden, Biden’s choice to lead the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), currently serves as president of the Center for American Progress, a far-left think tank founded by Clinton loyalist John Podesta.

    After Buzzfeed broke the news about the fake Steele dossier, Tanden launched the “Moscow Project” to promote the dossier.  She repeatedly defended the accuracy of the dossier even though it was totally false and full of Russian disinformation.  Incredibly, Tanden even defended the FBI’s abuse of the FISA courts.

    Tanden’s position as director of OMB requires Senate confirmation.  But Tanden praised Stacey Abrams after she referred to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as “Moscow Mitch.”  Sen. Lindsey Graham called Tanden “a nutjob,” and for good reason.  She’s been busy deleting past offensive tweets, more than a thousand of them!

    And this is Biden’s nominee, the man who claims he wants to unite the country?

    Speaking Of Offensive Tweets. . .

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is also busy deleting offensive tweets.  Over the weekend, she retweeted a post celebrating the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people.  But the post also included the anti-Semitic phrase, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

    As our friends at the Washington Free Beacon noted, that phrase is widely used by terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah because it is a call for the destruction of the entire state of Israel.  And if Israel ceased to exist, what would become of the nearly 7 million Jews who live there?

    I am not aware of any statement of condemnation from Speaker Pelosi regarding Tlaib’s latest anti-Semitic outburst.  Tlaib was also called out last week for attacking Antony Blinken, Biden’s nominee to be secretary of state, who happens to be Jewish.

    Sadly, given Tlaib’s well-documented record of anti-Semitism, I’m certain this won’t be her last call for the elimination of Israel.
