Kevin McCarthy is perpetuating the GOP's smear campaign against Ilhan Omar. McCarthy is urging Pelosi to remove Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. McCarthy urged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to strip Omar from the committee based on what he described as "anti-Semitic" and "anti-American" language from the Minnesota lawmaker. "The islamophobic tropes in this statement are offensive," Omar tweeted in response to a statement from 12 fellow House Democrats that condemned her recent remarks. In a separate statement, Omar said she was "in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems."

Sudan's prime minister warns of risk of chaos, civil war

REUTERS/Sarah Meyssonnier/PoolKHARTOUM, June 15 (Reuters) - Sudan's prime minister warned on Tuesday of the risk of chaos and civil war fomented by loyalists of the previous regime as he sought to defend reforms meant to pull the country out of a deep economic crisis and stabilise a political transition. "The deterioration of the security situation is mainly linked to fragmentation between components of the revolution, which left a vacuum exploited by its enemies and elements of the former regime," Hamdok said. He said that without reform of Sudan's sprawling security sector, which expanded under Bashir as he fought multiple internal conflicts, Sudan will continue to face internal and external threats. "These fragmentations can lead us to a situation of chaos and control by gangs and criminal groups, just as it can lead to the spread of conflict among all civilian groups and might lead to civil war."

WASHINGTON — Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar will be the target of dueling resolutions expected to be filed this week admonishing them for remarks that critics said were antisemitic or inappropriate. Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill., is expected to unveil a resolution Wednesday that would censure Greene, of Georgia, for remarks last month comparing House mask rules to the Holocaust. Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., is leading an effort to craft resolution to censure Omar. In 2019, the House voted to condemn antisemitism in response to statements made by Omar, but the resolution did not name her. And Tlaib said Republicans had mischaracterized remarks she made about Israel and the Holocaust.

It's been five years since a gunman killed 49 people at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Florida. Years after the shooting, Florida has still not made any drastic changes to its gun control laws, the Orlando Sentinel reported. "Today I am thinking of the 49 who we lost—49 human beings, 49 dreams, 49 futures, 49 families missing a loved one. The Pulse shooting on June 12, 2016, stands as the second-deadliest mass shooting in US history. Human-rights and anti-gun organizations, however, say lawmakers aren't doing enough to enact gun control in the wake of the shooting's anniversary.

“This is a low interest-rate loan to tackle the social and economic impact of COVID-19,” Finance Minister Mwigulu Nchemba told parliament while presenting the government’s budget for the 2021/22 (July-June) fiscal year. IMF officials in Dar es Salaam and Washington confirmed the talks, adding that the government, which has not published data on coronavirus infections since May last year, will be required to provide that information. “When applying for pandemic-related emergency financing, evidence of the pandemic has to be available to substantiate the claim,” the IMF’s resident representative, Jens Reinke, told Reuters. Tanzania plans to seek a sovereign credit rating to give it access to international capital markets, the minister said.

Three days before the fifth anniversary of the attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed legislation designating the site of the gay club a national memorial. The monument incorporates a reflecting pool and a garden with 49 trees ringing the remains of the nightclub, where an interim memorial currently stands. Initially set for 2022, completion of the museum and memorial has been delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the Sentinel. In February, singer Ricky Martin signed on as national spokesperson for the foundation’s efforts to raise $49 million for the project. In addition to the National Pulse Memorial and Museum, the money would be used for community outreach, educational programs and to establish 49 legacy scholarships.

WASHINGTON — A dozen House Democrats publicly criticized their colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., late Wednesday, accusing her of giving "cover" to terrorist and suggesting her remarks about Hamas and the Taliban reflect a "deep-seated prejudice." “Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided,” the group, led by Rep. Brad Schneider, of Illinois, said in a statement, urging Omar to "clarify" her remarks. Omar responded to her critics by calling their statement "offensive" and defending her initial remarks. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” she wrote on Twitter, echoing her remarks on the video. In a follow-up tweet, Omar defend her initial remarks: “Citing an open case against Israel, US, Hamas & Taliban in the [The International Criminal Court] isn’t comparison or from 'deeply seated prejudice'.

WASHINGTON—Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) moved to quell an intraparty fight by softening comments she had made earlier in the week that appeared to equate actions by the U.S. and Israel with those of terrorist organizations. The controversy over the tweet and Democratic colleagues’ reactions highlighted the divisions in the party over Middle East policy, which deepened during the recent fighting between Israel and Hamas. During the conflict, progressive Democrats in both the House and Senate briefly attempted to stop a $735 million weapons sale to Israel. In response to the tweet, some Democrats accused her of giving cover to terrorists.

An early goal from Neymar and a late second from Lucas Paqueta gave Brazil a 2-0 win against Paraguay in a World Cup qualifier in Asuncion on Tuesday, giving them a sixth straight victory in South America's preliminaries. Brazil had not beaten Paraguay away from home since 1985 but that record looked in danger as early as the third minute when Neymar controlled an awkward cross from Gabriel Jesus and side-footed home from eight meters out. The Paris St Germain striker came into the match with four goals and three assists in their five qualifying games so far, the best haul in the tournament, and the goal was his 66th in 105 games for Brazil. “It was a game where we scored early in the first half and that really settled us down and allowed us to play the ball about and Paraguay had to chase the game and we killed it right at the end,” said defender Marquinhos. The result leaves them top of the South American qualifying group for Qatar 2022 with a maximum 18 points.

In April, Air Canada, struggling with a collapse in traffic because of the COVID-19 pandemic, reached a deal on a long-awaited aid package with the federal government that would allow it to access up to C$5.9 billion ($4.69 billion) in funds.

ADDIS ABABA, June 5 (Reuters) - Ethiopia’s council of ministers have approved an 18% rise in the budget for the 2021-2022 fiscal year from a year ago to 561.7 billion birr ($13.00 billion), Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said on Saturday. The draft budget for the Ethiopian fiscal year of 2014 compares to a total of 476 billion birr that was set aside for spending in the 2020-2021 fiscal year. The Horn of Africa nation of 110 million people uses a different fiscal calendar than the rest of the world. Like many other countries in the region, Ethiopia’s economy has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, Ethiopia had projected an 8.5% economic growth for 2020-2021.

There is little room for defections among House Democrats. Multiple progressive Democrats have urged Biden to abandon efforts to get Republicans on board with an infrastructure deal. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin has said he would prefer bipartisan infrastructure legislation. His opposition alone could sink the effort, unless Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer can reel in some Republicans. "This is not the time for half-spending or half-measures," said Democratic Senator Ed Markey.
