The Poway Synagogue Shooting Is Dividing The American Jewish Community (HBO)

Last Saturday, a 19 year-old white supremacist walked into a synagogue and started shooting.

On Monday, Laurie Gilbert-Kaye was laid to rest, as her family, and an entire community, looked on.

In some ways, this attack has inspired members of the Jewish community to come together as they mourn. But it also seems to be causing division, as people argue over who is to blame for the rise in antisemitism.

To liberals, much of the blame lies with President Trump’s wink-wink relationship with the alt-right. But for those on the right, especially in the largely conservative community of Poway, the left’s criticism of Israel is a big part of the problem.

One of the focal points of this debate has been Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who has recently been accused of antisemitism for her remarks about Israel.

This quickly became a wider political debate outside of the Jewish community – a day after the shooting, members of Congress, including Senator Ted Cruz and Congressman Chip Roy essentially blamed the attack on Omar.

But leftists have accused the right of using the tragedy as a way to silence critics of Israel.

VICE News visited Poway to hear more about how politics are affecting how a community deals with tragedy.

What Beto O’Rourke’s 2020 Bid Means For The Democratic Primary (HBO)

Beto O’Rourke, the U.S. congressman who gave Ted Cruz a surprising challenge in the Texas Senate race, has backtracked on his pledge not to run for president.

“I haven’t made any decisions about anything,” O’Rourke told TMZ on Tuesday.

In November — on the very day before the midterm election he narrowly lost to Cruz — O’Rourke said he would not be a candidate for the 2020 presidential election.

“I will not be a candidate for president in 2020,” O’Rourke told MSNBC. “That’s, I think, as definitive as those sentences get.”

Houston Elected 19 Black Women And At Least One Socialist Judge (HBO)

HOUSTON, Texas — The Democrats’ blue wave didn’t quite capture the great state of Texas. Beto O’Rourke lost a close race to Ted Cruz. Greg Abbott easily defeated a challenger for a second term as governor.

But further down the ballot, especially in the big cities, blue was the only color.

Nowhere was that more true than in Houston, where a combination of Beto-fever and Texas’s straight-ticket-voting option, meant that every single Republican judge on the Harris County bench lost their seats to Democrats — 59 new judges, all told, including more than a dozen black women, and at least one democratic socialist.​.

The wipeout could mean a wholesale transformation of the judiciary in Houston, a city with one of the highest incarceration rates in the nation, a crisis over bail reform for indigent defendants, and a historic penchant for the death penalty.

“For 19 black women and a socialist to be elected judge in Houston, which is the epicenter of mass incarceration, is not a small deal,” said Jay Jenkins, an attorney with the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition. “The possibility that we could fix some of the issues that the sitting judges have just proved unwilling or unable to fix is on the horizon.”

But a clean slate election also meant some tough losses. Marc Carter has been a criminal court judge in Houston for 15 years, and one of the court’s most highly regarded jurists — from attorneys on both sides of the aisle. In 2009, he helped set up Texas’s first veterans court, which funnels veterans into treatment programs rather than jail for certain infractions.

He lost to a candidate who never set up a campaign website.

“I’m not going to pretend like I didn’t know what the rules are,” Carter told VICE News “The way you become a judge in Texas isn’t based on merit. It’s simply based on what party you’re affiliated with. And that’s it.”

What is the true face of feminism? (DEBATE)

The US is still reeling from its fiercely disputed midterm elections – which saw the Democrats win control of the House, but fail to take the Senate and some key states they had high hopes for. Such as in Texas – where the Republican candidate Ted Cruz won after a tight battle. And now there are accusations those women who voted for Cruz – betrayed feminism with their vote.

RT put the issue of feminism in politics up for debate with a women’s rights advocate, and a media commentator.

Beto O’Rourke: The Senate candidate hoping to turn Texas blue

In one of the most hotly contested matchups in the US midterm elections, Democrat Beto O’Rourke is trying to unseat conservative Texas Senator Ted Cruz. The 46-year-old Beto, whom supporters call by his first name, is climbing in the polls, as the November 6th election draws ever closer.

Ted Cruz Thinks He’s Going To Beat Beto O’Rourke. The Voters Agree. (HBO)

Columbus, Texas — Senator Ted Cruz is not assuming anything in his campaign for re-election. He’s a popular politician in a state that hasn’t sent a Democrat to the senate in 25 years. But polls show him in a surprisingly tight race with the young, telegenic upstart Beto O’Rourke, who’s captivated liberal crowds in Texas, and celebrity endorsements across the nation.

That’s why Cruz was here on Saturday, at an intimate gathering in a deep red town halfway between Houston and San Antonio: to rally the faithful back to his cause.

“The danger is that the economy is booming, people are focused on their jobs and their kids, going to church, going to the ballgame, and they just don’t make it out to vote,” Cruz told the crowd. “Our danger is complacency.”

Cruz leads O’Rourke by 4 percentage points, according to the Real Clear Politics average. But he faces more than just the familiar incumbents’ paradox that when things are good, parties in power have a hard time mobilizing voters.

The bigger worry is voter overconfidence. According to internal Republican National Committee data reported by Axios, the Republican faithful are unusually immune to reports showing that Democratic candidates are on the rise. One recent RNC survey found that 57% of strong Trump supporters don’t believe that Democrats will retake the House.

“To me, the polls that we’re seeing right now are eerily similar to the Trump-Clinton polls that we saw going up to the election,” said Tom Kelley, the GOP chair for Colorado County, at Cruz’s stop in Columbus. “It’s all hype and hyperbole.”

That’s why Cruz can’t simply ignore the huge crowds being drawn out by his opponent.

“We’re going to win this race,” Cruz told VICE News. “I feel very good about where we are. But the reason we’re going to win it is we’re not taking anything for granted. It is clear there are a lot of folks on the far left who are really angry and that anger — it’s a motivator. It is bringing dollars, it’s bringing passion, it’s bringing energy. And we have to take it seriously.”
