Far-left freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) announced she is endorsing Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-VT) 2020 campaign in a statement Tuesday night, becoming the first “Squad” member to publicly confirm their reported plans to endorse the socialist senator after his heart attack.
“Bernie is leading a working class movement to defeat Donald Trump that transcends generation, ethnicity and geography,” Omar said in a statement distributed by the Sanders campaign.

What do Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Cortez all have in common on financial reform?
By Phil Schneider - October 16, 2019 2203 0

The Israel Advocacy Movement claims that all 3 of the above could use some personal financial reform. Is this a cheap shot at the three young, up and coming Congresswomen who seem to wield inordinate power within the Democratic Party? Perhaps it is. But what is not at all surprising is the leftist knee-jerk attack on the rich and predictable call for a steep raise in taxes on the very rich. This sounds great to masses of people who are struggling. But just as high taxes drive companies and individuals to other states, high federal taxes drive multi-millionaires to move their companies and investments out of the country.

Tax The Rich Ideology
There is no question that people who have been blessed with much more financial success should do their part to help the poor and less fortunate. But the question is how best to do this in order to maximize the resources of the wealthy. The idea of offering major tax incentives on donations to non-profit organizations as a way to induce wealthy people to move themselves down from a high tax bracket to a medium tax bracket. Put simply, if a wealthy multimillionaire profits 10 million dollars in one year and he is taxed at 70% on his profits, he will need to give the federal government 7 million dollars. If instead the multi-millionaire is told that if he donates 2 million dollars to charity, then he will only need to pay 40% taxes, he will be much more comfortable with this idea. Then the federal government will receive 4 million dollars, the charities will receive 2 million dollars, and the multi-millionaire will receive high standing in their community due to charities that he has donated to. This will induce the wealthy person to stay put and continue to “give back” to their community.

So, the cynic will say, why should the wealthy person be allowed to hold on to so much of the wealth and decide for themselves how to apportion the wealth. Well this is where “The Squad” and the likes of Obama are completely wrong and where the wealthy people are right. Obama famously said that if a person profits enormously, it wasn’t really them who brought in the wealth – it was actually the federal government who had an enormous part in that happening because of the roads, infrastructure, etc.. that enabled that person. That is a complete exaggeration of the importance of the federal government. The truth is that indeed the wealthy person deserves the bulk of the credit and therefore the choice as to what to do with the wealth that has accrued.


So, taxing the rich makes non-rich people feel good. But it is both wrong economically and unjust to the wealthy person who earned the money and deserves to choose how to “give back.”

Ocasio-Cortez accuses Trump of anti-Semitism
Freshman New York Rep says Trump is anti-Semitic following his attacks on Rep. Adam Schiff.

https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/269846?fbclid=IwAR2HY2zGJ4X93w_-_
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has asserted that US President Donald Trump is anti-Semitic following his attacks on Rep. Adam Schiff of California, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, JTA reported Sunday.

“Understand that Trump is engaged in deliberate, atrocious, targeted antisemitism towards Chairman Schiff. Then ask yourself why no one cares to denounce it – esp when his accusation of it towards others drove full news cycles earlier this year,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday, retweeting an article in The Intercept suggesting that Trump’s attacks against Schiff come from the neo-Nazi playbook.

“It’s wrong. It’s harmful. And his bigotry is reflective of the white supremacist base he relies on for political gain,” she added.

Her comments came after Trump criticized Schiff on Wednesday for his part in the impeachment proceedings against him.

“We don’t call him ‘Shifty Schiff’ for nothing. He’s a shifty, dishonest guy,” Trump charged.

The Intercept article retweeted by Ocasio-Cortez said that calling Jews shifty – suggesting that they are sneaky and manipulative, is an age-old anti-Semitic canard.

Trump’s son, Donald Jr., in a tweet said that Schiff was “hand-picked and supported by George Soros,” and called him a Soros “puppet.”

Responses to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet noted that Trump’s daughter and grandchildren are Jewish, and that most people were unaware that Schiff was Jewish until they read her tweet.

Ocasio-Cortez has herself come under fire for several controversial statements involving Israel.

Last month, the freshman Congresswoman criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in an interview with Israel’s Channel 12 News while arguing that criticizing Israel’s policies is not being anti-Semitic.

In a radio interview in August, Ocasio-Cortez said that Israel is “criminal” in its treatment of Palestinian Arabs, whom she said have no other choice but to “riot” against the Jewish state.

She also caused an uproar in June after she claimed that the United States “is running concentration camps on our southern border.”

In April, she caused an uproar after she quoted a passage about the Holocaust to defend Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who was criticized for downplaying the 9/11 attacks.

Also in April, she said that cutting military and economic aid to Israel as a way to signal opposition to Israeli policies should be “on the table.”

Iraq war vet Chris Kelley challenges Ilhan Omar for seat in Congress

A veteran Minneapolis cop and decorated US Army vet will run as an independent to challenge Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar — and said Friday that her comments about 9/11 prompted his decision.

“It was very dismissive and disrespectful,” Chris Kelley told Fox News.

“September 11 was a terrible loss of life, not just for police officers and firefighters and other first responders, but 3,000 people and non-combatants died, and to be dismissive of that was an outrage,” he added.

Omar’s comment that on 9/11, “some people did something” last March sparked widespread outrage and condemnation from President Trump and lawmakers from both parties.

Kelley, 49, also charged that the freshman firebrand was more concerned about her celebrity status than her district.

“As former military, I am here to serve and not further my status. I want to do a good job for the people I represent and I don’t have a personal agenda,” Kelley told Fox.

“I’m passionate about service and I just want to be able to continue that.”

But he added that he did not want his campaign to go negative by attacking Omar.

“I won’t be bringing in controversy and scandal. I will be bringing firsthand knowledge of the things that I know are going on in the community as an officer. I see a lot every day — the homelessness, the opioid crisis; I want to bring these things to the forefront and put some ideas on the table on how to deal with them,” said Kelley, who is seeking the endorsement of the Independence-Alliance Party of Minnesota.

“I want to do anything I can to make people’s lives better; I just want to sit and listen to people and make some positive change.”

Kelley worked the streets of Minnesota for 20 years, and was deployed once during Operation Desert Storm and twice during Operation Iraqi Freedom during his years in the Army and Army Reserve.

The Hibbing native also holds a master’s degree in criminal justice leadership from Concordia University in St. Paul.

He could face an uphill effort in Minnesota’s heavily Democratic 5th Congressional District.

In the 2018 election, Omar defeated Republican Jennifer Zielinski with 78.2 percent of the vote.

Omar also defeated five other candidates in the Democratic primary with 48.2 percent of the vote while her closest competitor got 30.4 percent, according to Ballotpedia.

Kelley advocates immigration reform, and believes Congress has done a bad job on the humanitarian crisis on the border by not by adequately funding Border Patrol and ICE agents, who he said have been unfairly blamed for the conditions at the border by Omar and others.

“There’s not a cop or anybody in law enforcement who wants to see anybody suffer. We do need secure borders. You don’t have a country without a border, and allowing anybody to walk in is ridiculous,” he told the Duluth News Tribune.

Kelley added that children arriving in the country under circumstances beyond their control should have a path to citizenship — a position that puts him at odds with the president’s zero tolerance policy on illegal immigration.
“We have a lot of good people coming in that will help the country,” he said.

Ocasio-Cortez says it is time to talk about abolishing prisons
October 8, 2019
https://www.dailyconservative.com/sc3/ocasio-cortez-says-it-is-time-to-talk-about-abolishing-prisons.htm
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says some head-scratching things from time to time. She does not seem to live in the real world at all. Some ideas, such as the so-called “Green New Deal” are just asinine.

But her latest idea — which she broadcast yesterday on Twitter – takes the cake.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Mass incarceration is our American reality. It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery. To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country.”
That’s right. She wants to end prisons. Because they’re racist, or something. She claims that our system evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, which I suppose makes sense for people who have never taken a history class or read a book.
Make no mistake: Ocasio-Cortez’s goal is to completely break down the fabric of our society. She wants people who go to work, pay their taxes, and try to raise their kids to do the right things in life to pay for what she views as inequality.


If we aren’t even safe in our own homes because prisoners roam free — she wins. This is the kind of disruption she wants. This is the world she wants us to leave for our children and grandchildren. And Democrats now listen to her. This is why her party cannot be allowed anywhere near power in 2020.

Ihan Omar Files For Divorce

We all knew this day would come eventually. Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar recently got caught by her husband having an affair with one of her political consultants. Now, Omar is filing for a divorce.
The New York Post reports that the Omar filed for divorce in Minnesota by giving documents disclosing that there was “an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship.”

According to The Post:

“Omar said neither partner is seeking an order of protection and she seeks the court to grant them ‘joint legal and physical custody’ of their three minor children… She also asked the court to determine child support to ‘serve the minor children’s best interest’ and award the ‘marital property’ as the court ‘may deem just and equitable.'”

The consultant involved in the affair with Omar is also involved in a divorce as well.

Ocasio-Cortez Wants Welfare For Illegal Immigrants
October 5, 2019
Mgid

Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez now has another demand for America in order for it to achieve, as she calls it, a “fair society.” She wants to put in place national rent control to make renting homes cheaper for ILLEGAL immigrants. She also wants to give them welfare.

Ocasio-Cortez is pushing 6 different pieces of legislation that deal with these issues.

According to Fox News:

“‘The Place to Prosper Act’ would prevent year-over-year rent increases of more than three percent. Meanwhile, ‘The Embrace Act’ would allow illegal immigrants to claim the same welfare benefits as U.S. citizens and those immigrants here legally.”

This is absolute madness. Not only would this FORCE Americans to pay higher rent (rent control always leads to higher rental prices), but it would also force us to pay for welfare for illegal immigrants who came into this country illegally.

If you’re interested in reading about Ocasio-Cortez’s big plans for your hard-earned money, you can read the full report by Fox News here.

Democrat activist Badrun Kahn seeks to unseat Ocasio-Cortez in 2020
September 19, 2019
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) came to national attention when she defeated longtime Congressman Joseph Crowley in a primary challenge and ultimately ascended to Congress. Next year, she’ll be facing a challenger of her own.

Fox News reported that Democratic activist Badrun Khan will be facing off against Ocasio-Cortez for the chance to represent New York’s 14th congressional district

Khan currently sits on Queens Community Board 2. She will be campaigning under the slogan, “REAL results…Not empty promises.”

Challenging Ocasio-Cortez
Judging by her comments reported by The Hill, Ocasio-Cortez seems confident about her prospects. “I just focus on delivering for my district and doing the best job. I try not to focus too much on other folks in the field,” she said.

Nueey
A native of New York, Khan’s website describes her as “the eldest daughter of Bengali born parents who migrated to the United States in search of a better life and greater opportunity.”

Khan’s biography also indicates that she holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Marymount Manhattan College and “has worked as a financial officer for a large school for the past seven years.”

It appears that key pillars of her platform will be the future of health care and Social Security in America. She’s pledging to “fight to ensure Social Security and Medicare benefits will not be reduced rather they should be enhanced from their current levels.”

Other issues she will highlight in her campaign include government reform, veterans’ benefits, and the drug epidemic.

AOC the agitator
Ocasio-Cortez is among the nation’s highest-profile Democrats and is an undeniably controversial figure. Though she is set to face a challenge from within her own party’s ranks in the next election cycle, it appears that she nevertheless may be planning to throw her weight behind those looking to unseat incumbents in other districts.

The Hill reports that Ocasio-Cortez is considering supporting challengers to Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Henry Cuellar (D-TX).

The relationship between AOC and Pelosi has been noticeably strained for some time. During a July interview, Ocasio-Cortez made statements that many took as thinly-veiled accusations that Pelosi had acted in a racist manner toward young minority members of Congress known as the “Squad.”

“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” she stated. “But the persistent singling out…it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful … the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”

Rashida Tlaib Says She's Going To Hang Altered American Flag Outside of Her Office in Push for DC Statehood

Talk about Democratic denial.

Since Donald Trump’s astonishing upset of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, Trump’s opponents have spent almost three years trying to pretend a man they loathe is not the duly elected president of the United States.

Now, Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib — as obnoxious as any other member of the progressive Democratic “squad” — is open to pretending there aren’t actually just 50 states in the union.

At a hearing Thursday of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to study “statehood” for the District of Columbia, Tlaib told D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser she wanted a flag with 51 stars to display outside her office, as a symbol of her support for upending one more aspect of the Constitution as the Framers devised it.

Tlaib’s exchange with Bowser came up because D.C. statehood advocates had the effrontery last week to display American flags with a 51st star — a mangling of Old Glory for political purposes that should have offended even liberals with a respect for reality.

“I would love one,” Tlaib said, according to Fox News. “I would love to hang it outside of my office.”

It didn’t make her a lot of fans.

Aren’t you relieved that Congress, lead by the squad, is tackling issues like this that will impact American lives in a positive way?Just imagine if they were investigating BS, and proposing ridiculous bills on house time.

Omar Tries to Explain Calling Dad by Husband's Last Name in Tweet: It's Just a Nickname
By C. Douglas Golden
Published September 18, 2019 at 10:08am
The theory that Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar married her brother has become a very contentious issue. It’s become even more contentious now that a tweet showing her wishing a happy Father’s Day to a man with the same name as her husband — especially since she deleted it.

The controversy, long considered a conspiracy theory limited to the conservative blogosphere, has now gone pretty mainstream. It’s going to get even more attention now that the uncovered tweet is trending.

Posted six years ago, the tweet was deleted early Tuesday morning, according to The Daily Caller.
It read: “Happy Father’s Day to my aabo Nur Said, I am forever grateful to Allah for giving me the best father a…” along with a link to an Instagram post.

According to public information, Omar’s father is a Somali immigrant living in the United States named Nur Omar Mohamed. She has an ex-husband named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
Controversial Islamic reformist Mohamad Tawhidi drove home the import of what the scrubbed social media post implied.

Omar’s people, meanwhile, defended the deletion in a statement Tuesday, according to New York Post writer Jon Levine.

“Rep. Omar and her family are subject to constant threats,” the statement from a spokesperson for Omar read.

“When people write vile things on posts about people she loves — including posting disturbing doctored images of her father — she takes them down.
“Nur Said means ‘Happy Light’ and it’s been her dad’s nickname since he was a kid. He has a public page with the same name.

“She isn’t deleting it for the disturbing and hateful reasons that are being implied by conspiracy theorists and legitimate media outlets shouldn’t be spreading conspiracy theories.”

This is all well and good, and one doesn’t want to spread conspiracy theories about Rep. Omar.

That said, it’s more than curious that if “Nur Said” simply means “happy light,” that Omar’s second husband was named the same thing. Andrew Kerr of The Daily Caller pointed this out:

This is an odd response. "Nur Said" a nickname? Odd, given that "Nur Said" is part of her ex-husband's legal name...

By the by, this isn’t just those rascally conspiracy theorists on right-wing blogs who are pointing this out.

In June, the Minnesota Star-Tribune reported on the “lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.”

The story noted how documents from a state agency displayed “the Omar campaign’s efforts to keep the story of her marriage to Elmi out of the press, arguing that detailed coverage would legitimize the accusations and invade her privacy.”

Do you think Ilhan Omar is telling the truth about her second husband?
Yes No

So, for those of you who don’t get the whole story, here you go: In 2002, Omar was first married to a man named Ahmed Hirsi in a religious — but not legal — ceremony. In 2008, she divorced Hirsi and married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.

“Little is known about Elmi, other than that Omar has referred to him as a ‘British citizen’ and that he attended high school in the Minneapolis area and, like Omar, later attended North Dakota State University,” PolitiFact reported in July.

The two obtained a religious divorce in 2011 but remained legally married until 2017. This is problematic, since Omar filed taxes with Hirsi as a married couple filing jointly during this time.

“In 2016, as Omar was seeking a state House seat, the conservative website AlphaNewsMN, followed by other ideological sites, posted a screenshot of an Instagram post — since deleted — that was allegedly uploaded by Elmi on June 12, 2012, shortly after Omar gave birth to her third child,” PolitiFact reported.
“The caption of the photograph identified Elmi as holding the baby girl, calling her ‘nieces.’ To some, this suggested a sibling relationship.”

By the way, PolitiFact — a fact-checking website never described as a bustling hive of conservatism — didn’t necessarily think these allegations were false, just that they were unproven and that Omar would prefer they stay that way by not releasing any pertinent information that would clear her in this matter.

“What’s really made it hard is that she’s been unwilling to address any of these questions. That has fueled the controversy,” PolitiFact reported.

“We quoted her at length to say that these were mere accusations, that they were unfair, and that she shouldn’t have to address them. Be that as may, there was an undisputed instance of her filing her taxes improperly. And if you’re in Congress, you should explain that to your constituents.

“It’s true that for many immigrants like Omar, there are not a lot of available public records from their home country. That works both for and against her. It can leave family relationships murky. But in fairness to her, these allegations can be hard for her to disprove.”

Hard, but not impossible, and her excuses don’t necessarily seem to hold water. Furthermore, no major mainstream media outlet seems to want to investigate this by going to Somalia and seeing if they can sort out the truth.

“I wish we could send a reporter to Mogadishu (Somalia) but we don’t have the bandwidth,” PolitiFact’s Louis Jacobson wrote.

News outlets that do have that bandwidth — The New York Times, The Washington Post, etc. — don’t seem to be terribly interested.

Well, fine. But until definitive evidence emerges one way or another, these allegations are going to dog Omar the same way her tax returns did.

They’re not going away, and it’s not just the conspiracy theorists on the fringe who are reporting them now.

Insiders Say House Democrats Are Dozens of Votes Short of Impeachment: Report
By Randy DeSoto
Published September 18, 2019 at 1:44pm
The Democrats reportedly remain more than 40 House members short of the votes needed to impeach President Donald Trump.

“Democratic insiders say 175 of their members would vote for impeachment today on the House floor,” Politico reported Wednesday.

The news outlet added, “Will that ever tick up, in the face of a leadership that’s looking to tamp it all down? Remember: Dems would need 218 votes on the floor to impeach the president.”

In July, the House voted to table a resolution offered by Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas to begin the impeachment process.

The final tally was 332-95.

Despite not having a full vote of Congress calling for an impeachment inquiry to begin, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York decided to move forward with one.

Nadler told WNYC-FM’s Brian Lehrer on Monday that Trump must be impeached by the House even though a conviction and removal from office by the Republican-controlled Senate will not happen.

“Impeachment is imperative not because he’s going to be removed from office. The Senate won’t do that. But because we have to vindicate the Constitution,” Nadler said.

“We are involved in an investigation to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment to the House. That is what we’re doing,” the New York congressman added.

Do you think Democrats will impeach Trump?
Yes No

“The term ‘impeachment investigation,’ the term ‘impeachment inquiry’ have no legal meaning. They’re shorthand for an investigation into determining whether to recommend articles of impeachment.”

Politico reported that during a closed meeting last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California rebuked House Judiciary Committee staff for pushing the impeachment of Trump beyond the current Democratic consensus.

Democrats do not have the votes to impeach the president, she said.
“And you can feel free to leak this,” Pelosi added.

The speaker has consistently expressed a reluctance to begin impeachment proceedings without the support of the American public and bipartisan agreement in Congress.

A Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found 37 percent are in favor of impeachment proceedings beginning, while 50 percent oppose the move and 12 percent are undecided.

According to Politico, support for impeachment has fluctuated between 35 and 38 percent since the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in the spring.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), a member of the so-called “Squad” of female freshmen lawmakers, will introduce a resolution Tuesday calling for an impeachment inquiry against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after a New York Times piece claimed a new allegation of sexual misconduct against him.
“I believe Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez. It is our responsibility to collectively affirm the dignity and humanity of survivors,” she said in a statement, according to WBUR.

Pressley’s three-paragraph resolution would authorize an impeachment inquiry, call for a committee or task force to be empowered to conduct depositions and issue subpoenas, and authorize funding for the probe, according to the outlet.


“Sexual predators do not deserve a seat on the nation’s highest court and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process set a dangerous precedent,” she said. “We must demand justice for survivors and hold Kavanaugh accountable for his actions.”

Pressley is reportedly planning to introduce the resolution even after the Times walked back part of the claim.

The authors of the Times piece, who recently published a book on Kavanaugh, claimed there was an eyewitness, fellow Yale classmate Max Stier, who had alleged Kavanaugh’s friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.

Later, the piece was clarified to say that the female student declined to be interviewed, and her friends said she did not recall the incident.

Two other members of the “Squad,” Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), have also called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment, although Omar’s call came before the Times‘ clarification. Ocasio-Cortez called for his impeachment in a tweet Monday after the clarification, which she deleted but then reposted.

Many of the 2020 Democrats had called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment before the clarification, including former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro (D), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D).

Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) supported congressional action but did not explicitly call for impeachment.

The issue is firing up both the right and the left. Kavanaugh was confirmed after another accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, had claimed he had drunkenly held her down and groped her at a high school party.

Ilhan Omar Claims People 'Want the Controversy' After Her Latest Controversial Comments Surface
By Joe Saunders
Published September 16, 2019 at 7:41am
So it’s everybody else’s fault.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota Democrat whose comments about 9/11 outraged millions of Americans, and whose string of anti-Semitic remarks actually led to a literal act of Congress in the form of a resolution condemning hate back in the spring, doesn’t think she’s the problem at all.
She’s just controversial, Omar told “Face the Nation” on Sunday, because “people seem to want the controversy.”

And on Monday, the controversy was out in full force.

Omar’s remark came in a lengthy interview with Margaret Brennan that covered, among other things, the congresswoman’s infamous description of the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something” and her more recent comparison of the African slave trade to the detention of illegal immigrants in the Southwest.

TRENDING: It Sounds Like Lindsey Graham Now Has Some Damning Dirt on Christopher Steele

“I’m only controversial because people seem to want the controversy,” Omar told Brennan on Sunday.

She then launched into a defense of her speech last week where she discussed modern slavery in North Africa and reminisced about a recent trip to Ghana where she viewed dungeons where slaves were held before transport to the Western Hemisphere. In the speech, she compared both to detention centers in the United States.

But, hey, people just “seem to want the controversy.”

What else could it be?

Check out the “Face the Nation” interview here. The “people seem to want the controversy” part comes about the 2-minute mark.

It’s true, as Fox News noted, that Omar was specifically asked by Brennan if she meant the comparison as an attack on American border agents and Omar replied “absolutely not.”

But that isn’t the way the remarks came across when Omar originally made them — maybe because so many people seem to want the controversy.

On Monday, social media was still brewing with the fallout from Omar’s Sunday interview.

Make outrageous statements that belittle your fellow Americans, insult the country and its traditions, then blame sane Americans for reacting badly. Democratic politicians do it, entertainment world celebrities do it, the harridans on “The View” do it.

In Omar’s statements, and possibly even in her own mind, it’s not her fault that Americans object to her flippant reference to 9/11 — an attack on the country that killed almost 3,000 countrymen and launched almost two decades of war.
It’s not her fault that her risible comparison of immigrant detention centers to the North African slave trade drew a backlash.

No, to Omar, and to the progressive Democrats who’ve chosen her as one of their party’s de facto leaders in the 21st century, she’s just saying her piece.
Any problems are everybody else’s fault.

'Flaming AOC' Ad Creator Swamped with Death Threats from 'Tolerant' Left
By C. Douglas Golden
Published September 15, 2019 at 12:01pm
During the third Democratic debate on Thursday, a controversial campaign commercial aired in some markets that’s become known as the “Flaming AOC” ad.

The narrator of the piece is a former Republican congressional candidate whose family escaped from the bloody Khmer Rouge communist regime in Cambodia, Elizabeth Heng. She compared Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialism to the kind of socialism that has killed millions across the globe over the past century.

Now, just to prove her point, Heng says she’s been getting death threats from what one would assume are supporters of Ocasio-Cortez.
“I’m currently getting death threats since the ad aired,” Heng told Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM radio on Friday.

“If we want to talk about what incites violence, socialism does,” Heng said. “My parents lived through a socialist regime that murdered millions of innocent civilians, and I’m currently getting death threats since the ad aired. The only people inciting violence are the radical left, who can’t defend their ideas with facts, so they resort to horrible personal attacks, and as we’ve seen, even death threats.

“I put out an ad challenging AOC’s socialist views, and she came back and called me a bunch of names. That should tell you everything you really need to know about the face of socialism, right now, in our country.”

Heng’s ad began with Ocasio-Cortez’s face; the paper with her picture on it caught on fire and revealed a pile of skulls, intermixed with other footage of the Khmer Rouge’s atrocities.

“This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” Heng says in voiceover. “Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism?”
“My father was minutes away from death in Cambodia. That’s socialism. Forced obedience, starvation.
“Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white. I’m not outrageous, racist, or socialist,” Heng adds. “I’m a Republican.”
The ad was sponsored by New Faces PAC — a newly created GOP super PAC, according to CBS News. It aired on some stations owned by ABC and Sinclair Broadcasting.

This was the target of immediate Twitter opprobrium from Ocasio-Cortez.

Heng tweeted back at the time that Ocasio-Cortez’s “response is the Democratic party in a nutshell. They are more offended by truthful words than the acts of their political ideology that has killed millions of innocent victims.”

.@aoc response is the Democratic party in a nutshell.  They are more offended by truthful words than the acts of their political ideology that has killed millions of innocent victims.  I don't care about @AOC feelings - I care about stopping her lies about the lies of socialism.

During the interview, Heng seemed to realize the double standard being afforded to the death threat claims against members of “the squad” — Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib — and death threats against her.

“I don’t think it’s appropriate to ever threaten anybody — member of Congress or not — but it’s so important to be able to have this discussion in our country about what true socialism is, and what it’s done without being attacked through death threats [or] anything else,” she told Breitbart.
“That’s why it’s so important to me to hold onto those fundamental freedoms and values — of freedom of speech, for example — and to make sure that we are able to have diverse political thoughts in this country. It seems like every single time a conservative speaks up, the left consistently wants to ban them, censor then, boycott them.”

Rather hilariously, squad member Tlaib — a Michigan Democrat — described the ad as a “televised death threat.” The real death threats apparently don’t rate with her; it’s still time to ban Heng, censor Heng, boycott Heng.
If it weren’t for double standards …

Nancy Pelosi Abruptly Walks Out of News Conference over Impeachment Questions
By Joe Saunders
Published September 12, 2019 at 11:38am
Nancy Pelosi looks like she’s feeling the pressure.

The House speaker has already been plagued this session with rebels in her own ranks — in the form of New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her squadmates.

Now, judging by the abrupt end of a Pelosi news conference reported by the Washington Examiner on Thursday, it looks like the constant questions about impeaching President Donald Trump have the California Democrat approaching the breaking point.

Pelosi’s irritation over the impeachment issue was clear — from her arrogantly imperious tone to her near-frantic hand movements.

“I travel the entire country,” she told reporters. “Come with me some time and you’ll hear what the American people are saying.

Near the end of that oration, Pelosi tried to cut off any further questions about the I-word.

“That’s all I’m going to say about this subject, and there’s nothing different from one day to the next. We’re still on our same path,” she said.

But it turned out some reporters were still on the same subject.

And Pelosi did not handle it well at all.

Watch how she ended the news conference here. The question is tough to make out, but its topic was impeachment, and Pelosi wasn’t having it at all:

That’s not the look of a woman in command.

Sure, she attempted to change the subject to gun control, a topic Democrats think they have some traction on. She challenged reporters to bother Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with questions about why he’s not rolling over for Democrat proposals to infringe on Americans’ constitutional rights instead of bothering her with “impeachment” questions.

“Why is it that you are hung up with a word over here when lives are at stake over there?” she asked.

But all the pretentious blather in the world isn’t going to change the political reality in which Pelosi is living.

Her frustration is understandable, of course. She’s the head of a political caucus that’s riven by far-left lawmakers (from safely blue seats) who wanted impeachment hearings to start in January, and Democratic “moderates” who won seats in the 2018 midterms that they’ll be giving up in 2020 if leftist Democrats enrage Americans in saner congressional districts.

In the latest bit of Democratic straddling, the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday voted to discuss setting the ground rules for future impeachment inquiries, Fox News reported.

Rashida Tlaib says ‘we need a political revolution’
September 12, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
Rep. Rashida Tlaib has finally come out and said it.
In a not so stunning tweet, the Michigan Democrat admitted that she is trying to create a “political revolution” in America, Breitbart reports.
Tlaib tweeted Saturday:
Rashida Tlaib
✔
@RashidaTlaib
We have to make the tough, courageous changes that completely transform a political and economic system that is now built for corporations (and profits), not people. 

Choosing the status quo means doing nothing and giving up.
 
We need a political revolution. https://twitter.com/kob_josh/status/1170402948385345541

Interview with @RashidaTlaib, talking about strong women who fight poverty and injustice-- she speaks about my friend’s late mother Maryann Mahaffey and another wonderful fighter Grace Lee Boggs. https://www.thenation.com/podcast/rashida-tlaib-next-left/
Trump is Scared
According to Tlaib, President Trump is terrified of her as well as her fellow members of the so-called “Squad.”

Tlaib believes Trump has no plan for this country and says the president fears her Squad because they do have a plan.

She went on: “He’s afraid of women of color…because we’re not afraid of him and we’re not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda.”

But the situation is not so much that Trump is afraid of Tlaib as it is that his hands are tied. While Tlaib insults Trump all day, the president can’t even whisper in her direction without facing criticism or being called racist or sexist.

The Political Revolution
For her part, Tlaib says this country is no longer about people, but rather, corporations and profit. She and her fellow Democrats have a plan for that — but it would completely transform our government and way of life.

They want to turn capitalism into socialism, because they know once that transformation is complete, the people of this country will forever lose their power.

Find out how AOC can bail you out of jail!

By Leah Rosenberg - September 11, 2019 2030 0
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley are SO motivated and passionate! That is, to help criminals involved with Antifa out of jail. This is too much.
Antifa Arrest? Contact The Squad!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=14&v=2QYv_nMcJ2Q

Antifa Arrest? Call AOC!
What happened to congressmen and congresswomen fighting FOR American values? What happened to them putting their time and effort into defending innocent Americans rather than criminals? It is insane! AOC has helped those involved with Antifa out of jail. She and Ayanna Pressley actually raised the funds to bail criminals out of prison. These Antifa members were violent. They disturbed the peace. These activists were arrested at a Boston ‘Straight Pride Parade.’ They assaulted people, including police officers. So, what are AOC and Pressley supporting and raising funds for? People who use violence. What message does this send to Americans? The exact message in this video: If you need help getting bailed out of jail for using violence and violating the law, just contact AOC and Ayanna Pressley. They’ll be sure to raise the funds you need. Oh, but of course, you cannot be a Trump supporter. Then you’re stuck.

Things Just Keep Getting Worse
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hopeless. Things just keep getting worse and worse. Her comments, her actions – everything is absurd. What she stands for, what she protests, what she supports – it is none of what America values.


But Americans keep falling for her “activism.” They keep supporting her constant passion to stand up for “human rights.” But do they ever look at what she is actually standing up for? That none of it is about human rights? That when it comes to the people who really need to be defended, she is nowhere to be found? AOC is NOT good news for America.

Ilhan Omar’s husband wants a divorce following reports of infidelity: Report
September 4, 2019
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/conservative-news/omars-husband-wants-divorce.htm
Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s words often make headlines. But now, it’s the Democrat’s alleged actions that are in the news.

Omar has recently faced accusations that she had an affair with political consultant Tim Mynett — and now, the New York Post is reporting that the congresswoman’s husband wants a divorce. 

The story first came to light last week when a D.C. court filing from Beth Mynett said that her husband had left her for Omar.

“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar,” the filing states.


On Aug, 27, Omar denied the affair and other reports alleging she had separated from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi. “No, I am not,” Omar told a reporter who begged the question, according to Fox News. “As I said yesterday, I have no interest in allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it.”

Tim Mynett has also disputed the reports, claiming he’s the victim of vindictive smears by his estranged wife.

Money problems
But Omar hasn’t only found herself in marital trouble. News of the alleged affair has also brought questions of whether the congresswoman used her position to convey financial benefits to her alleged lover.

Since 2018, Omar’s campaign has paid a total of $230,000 to the E Street Group, a consulting firm of which Mr. Mynett is a partial owner, according to National Review. Over $160,000 of that total was spent in this year alone, Federal Election Commission (FEC) data shows.



What’s curious is that the campaign began paying the E Street Group for “travel expenses” on April 1 — just a week before Beth Mynett says that her husband announced he was involved with Omar. Thus far, the “expenses” have totaled more than $20,000.

Due for divorce?
For its part, the Post quoted a friend of the couple who said they were “surprised” that Hirsi hadn’t already moved to divorce Omar. The Post‘s source attributed Hirsi’s reluctance to concern for the couple’s children.

The Post also reports that Omar and Hirsi have been living apart since March, with Omar moving into a luxury condo. Her husband is said to be staying with friends as well as at the condo when Omar is in Washington.

Despite being wed in a religious ceremony almost two decades ago, Hirsi and Omar only legally married in 2017. Prior to that, she was married to a British man who some have alleged is actually her brother.

Everybody Must Get Stoned – Except Ilhan Omar
My latest in PJ Media: “Everybody must get stoned,” Bob Dylan said, but despite the fact that she has been accused of committing an offense for which Islamic law prescribes stoning, the one person to whom Dylan’s words do not apply is Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). Even the most hardline Muslim clerics worldwide are almost […]

Ilhan Omar Wants To Bring in a 'UN High Commissioner' To Stop US from Protecting Sovereign Borders

Apparently, having an actual border and taking action against those who illegally cross it is such a heinous thing to Rep. Ilhan Omar that we need the United Nations in the United States to deal with it.

Yes, really. Welcome to America à la “Squad.”

According to Fox News, the Minnesota Democrat made the proposal during a speech on Tuesday.

“We should do what any other country does, by dealing with this situation in a serious way,” she said.

“So we have to bring in the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees — an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely.”

TRENDING: Joe Biden Caught Telling Fabricated War Story

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Omar made the remarks at a Minneapolis forum on immigration, an issue on which she said that the United States was “losing our moral high ground.”

“What we face is not an invasion,” she said. “This is not an invasion, it’s an immigration crisis.”

She also believes that people illegally crossing our border aren’t really doing anything illegal.

“We are treating people like criminals when they have not committed a crime,” Omar said.

Do you think the UNHCR should help deal with the border crisis?
Yes No

“It doesn’t make any sense for us to be committing these kinds of human rights violations, to have these policies in the way we interact with migrants and asylum seekers if we want to continue to be the kind of country that condemns countries in Africa, in Asia or Latin American countries for its treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.”

Because apparently, every single one of these asylum seekers meets the credible fear threshold.

“We’re all here tonight because we all recognize that immigration is one of the defining civil rights and human rights issue of our time,” she told the audience, calling immigration a “broken system.” On the last count, she’s right, although perhaps not in the way she had intended to be.

I suppose Omar would prefer we focus on virtually anything that doesn’t have to deal with the recent allegations that she’s been funneling campaign funds to a married man she’s allegedly having an affair with.

That being said, while the idea of the United Nations taking a significant role in United States border policy may go over well with the base, I suspect this isn’t exactly going to endear her to moderates or those who aren’t already enamored with “the Squad.”

There were no calls for the UNHCR to intervene during the Obama administration’s border crisis, during which — as any conservative will remind you — the whole “children in cages” thing started.

What’s changed now? Well, for starters, the percentage of illegal immigrants requesting asylum.

In 2014, Department of Justice data shows, 47,528 migrants requested asylum. In 2016, that number was up to 82,386. By 2018, that number had nearly doubled to 162,881. Through June 30, 2019, the total for the year was 157,408.

It’s worth digging a bit deeper on those numbers, though. There are two types of asylum applications, “affirmative” and “defensive.”

An affirmative application is from someone who has yet to face deportation hearings. Defensive asylum, meanwhile, involves individuals who were already facing deportation. The percentage of defensive asylum cases has spiked significantly, as The Washington Post noted in April.

And, as The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman noted, the percentage of illegal immigrants claiming asylum after being apprehended has gone from 1 percent to roughly 30 percent in just a period of a few years.

So, yes, the system is broken. Yes, there’s an immigration crisis. The problem, however, isn’t one for the UNHCR, which is best suited to handle migrant flows from countries like Syria and Burma where there’s an actual human rights crisis.

There’s no way to look at those numbers and not realize that the massive spike in asylum claims isn’t based on any great humanitarian emergency that’s developed of late in Central America.

Instead, this is a matter of shifting tactics.

Even without all of this, there’s something deeply distressing about a politician inviting the United Nations in to deal with a matter of policy.

This is has nothing to do with solving a border crisis and everything to do with how the Trump administration has been handling it.

From reducing the credible fear threshold — which is low enough that three-quarters of asylum seekers currently meet it — to working with other Central American countries to ensure they secure their borders and take in asylum seekers themselves, the administration is taking common-sense steps, and common sense currently drives the left crazy.

Thus, it’s time for the UNHCR to come in and tell us what-for.

The likelihood of this happening is roughly zero. The current administration isn’t going to countenance it. If a Democratic administration takes over in 2021, the call for UNHCR intervention is going to go poof, no matter how bad the border crisis gets.

As a peek into what Ilhan Omar and the new American left thinks of U.S. sovereignty at the southern border, however, this is a dangerous and telling proposal.

  Muslim Scholar just put Omar and Tlaib in their places in this explosive interview!
By Phil Schneider -  August 29, 2019 3 0

Is the Muslim faith really the religion of peace? Well, there are different views on this matter. But are Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar the new representatives of the Muslim faith for the future decades? If so, we have a big problem on our hands. They represent everything that is not positive about the Muslim faith – they represent everything that is based on falsehoods and classic anti-Semitism.

Progressive Views and The Truth
There is a basic problem that progressives have when they discuss complex issues. They typically put aside basic facts and truths and focus on feelings and hunches. This is not due to a lack of intelligence. It is a conscious choice to side with what feels right and not with what IS right. That is because a basic attitude of so many progressives is that there is no absolute right or absolute wrong. This is absolutely wrong.

Once there is no right and wrong, then the world basically is one big chaotic place where everyone’s feelings are constantly being trampled on by everyone. This is an impossible state. If there is nothing that is just and nothing that is unjust, but just a world of amorphous feelings that people walk around expressing, then there is no point in anybody doing much of anything. After all, what point is there to anything in a world that has no absolute truth.


That is the essential difference between liberals and progressives. Age-old liberals do not let their feelings take over. They reign in their feelings with thoughts that are genuine and reasonable. But they prioritize rights and not responsibilities. Progressives not only do not believe in responsibilities, but they only care about feelings. This is totally against the age-old Judeo-Christian ethic of absolutism in the world. Once God is removed from the picture, there is chaos. We need to bring back the Lord into the picture of our moral codes.

The Tlaib-Omar Show Was a BDS Masterstroke
By Dr. Asaf Romirowsky August 29, 2019


https://besacenter.org/perspectives-papers/tlaib-omar-bds/
Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, official photos via Wikimedia Commons


BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 1,270, August 29, 2019


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The recent farce surrounding the non-visit of US Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar to Israel highlighted the pernicious self-delusion and zero-sum exclusion of the BDS worldview, which polarizes American politics regarding Israel.


It is a great and quintessentially Israeli irony that Arab members of the Knesset have repeatedly proposed establishing an official Nakba Day – in other words, a day that commemorates the founding of the state as a catastrophe of historic proportions. While the Knesset’s Ministerial Committee on Legislative Affairs eventually banned such proposals, their persistence up to that point indicates how deeply ingrained 1948 is in the Arab psyche, including among modern day elected representatives.


The Nakba Day proposals were by no means unique. The Knesset has allowed Arab members to express anti-Israel views for decades, including calls for the country’s destruction and denials of its right ever to have existed at all.


Former Arab MK Hanin Zoabi consistently called for the termination of the state of Israel and sailed on the Mavi Marmara in its 2010 bid to break Israel’s security blockade of Gaza. In April 2018, she once again called for the State of Israel to be dissolved and replaced with either two states — one secular and one Palestinian – or one binational secular state.


Shortly after the second Lebanon War, MK Azmi Bishara expressed sympathy for Hezbollah, defining it as a resistance movement. According to Bishara, Hezbollah was fighting a war brought on by an Israeli government led by “mediocrities, cowards and opportunists” who were responsible for “barbaric vandalism and the deliberate targeting of civilians.”


Israel affords these opportunities in its Parliament to its democratically elected officials. It is unlikely that the US Congress would stand for calls by its members to give aid and comfort to its enemies and, indeed, to destroy America completely.


Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar have taken it upon themselves to question Israel’s right to exist and to promote its destruction through BDS. To put it bluntly: it is apparently bad form to advocate anti-American positions in Congress (other than to question the legitimacy of President Trump), but a Congressperson can express views that seek the destruction of American allies and still come off as a patriotic.


In BDS World, where there is no room for facts, supporters strive to create an appealing political façade for the benefit of left-wing progressive circles. Israel scored no points for denying entry to the Congresswomen, or even for showing a humanitarian gesture toward one of them. This was a lose-lose scenario that dealt in relative outcomes. Had Tlaib and Omar made the trip, Israel could have taken control of the story. Instead, Israel allowed it to be told by the BDS movement and its leaders.


US-Israel relations have been through worse, and they will survive this too. But the incident is worth contextualizing within the US-Israel political framework. Tlaib and Omar displayed remarkable audacity in openly lying about their trip, both in advance and then again after it was canceled. They falsely claimed they were planning to meet Israeli officials when their itinerary included only ‘Palestine’, Palestinians, and supporters of Palestinians.


Tlaib’s actions proved that her visit was never meant to be an impartial trip to the scene of the conflict. Nor was it about seeing her grandmother. The point was to showcase the so-called “occupation.” Such manipulations, compounded by the soft power enjoyed by pro-Palestinian groups, magnify a fictitious reality. They allow those groups to hijack the narrative of peace, justice, and human rights while yearning for Israel’s destruction.


US-Israel relations do not exist in vacuum, and US opinion is neither monolithic nor frozen in time. It has undergone significant shifts since 1948, with some groups becoming more favorable toward Israel and others less so. Nevertheless, as polls illustrate, support for Israel has become an American value, even if some elected officials feel otherwise. Sustaining this requires work and perseverance.


It is a serious challenge to get past the self-delusion and zero-sum exclusion of the BDS worldview, which polarizes American politics regarding Israel, and convey the actual reality of the Middle East. The normalization of antisemitism in American politics and culture – together with our growing collective dependency on technology and the general tone of politics – reduces complex issues to sound bites and drives polarization and ignorance.
