Stories about
Ilhan Omar


Ilhan Omar (born 1982) is a Somali-American politician from Minnesota. In 2016, she was elected a Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party member of the Minnesota House of Representatives, making her the first Somali-American Muslim legislator elected to office in the United States. She is the Director of Policy and Initiatives of the Women Organizing Women Network.

Hundreds of protesters gathered across the street from the Hilton hotel in Woodland Hills, California — and some unfurled banners from hotel balconies — to oppose Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who addressed a fundraiser for the local branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

CAIR claims to speak for American Muslims, but is an extremist group.

As Breitbart news has noted:

In 2007-8, CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the terror financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. That case, in turn, led the FBI to discontinue its work with the organization. In 2009, a federal judge ruled that the government “produced ample evidence to establish” the ties of CAIR with Hamas, the Palestinian terror organization. The United Arab Emirates labeled CAIR a terrorist organization in 2014 (a decision that the Obama administration opposed).

In addition:

The political action committee of CAIR in California donated the maximum of $5,000 to Omar’s 2018 campaign.

In 2015, CAIR’s Los Angeles director suggested that the U.S. was partly to blame for the San Bernardino terror attack, in which 14 people were killed, due to American foreign policy. CAIR also offered legal assistance to the family of the terrorists who carried out the attack.

Omar spoke at the fundraiser after several weeks of controversy over her use of antisemitic rhetoric to attack Israel and American supporters of Israel. She was appointed by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, despite having claimed that Israel had “hypnotized the world,” among other antisemitic statements. In February, she claimed, falsely, that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) bribed members of Congress to support Israel. She was forced to apologize, but then claimed Americans who support Israel owe “allegiance to a foreign country,” and refused to apologize. House Democrats passed a weak resolution that condemned all forms of hatred, without mentioning her name or singling out antisemitism.

The protesters at Saturday’s event waved American and Israeli flags. At one stage, banners, placed by activist Laura Loomer, were unfurled from two balconies, reading “Ilhan Hates Israel” and “CAIR Hates Jews.”

Though some journalists who had tried to gain access to the event itself complained that they had not been allowed in, video emerged Saturday night of part of Omar’s remarks, in which she claimed the protesters were prejudiced against Islam and Muslims:

— Ariella Plachta (@AriPlachta) March 24, 2019

That theme was repeated by supporters of CAIR and Omar:

Today, I was upset as to what I saw. My friends and I saw people protesting @IlhanMN and shouting “terrorists go home.” It’s disheartening people still don’t accept one another. Trump supporters started to surround us a little after. As a Muslim, I felt unsafe in my own community pic.twitter.com/PEd5ATorLs

But some Muslims — including some Somali leaders in the 5th congressional district of Minnesota, which Omar represents — have condemned her rhetoric and say it does not represent them.

Many Jews are bamboozzled by nice speaches from a left field as they mimic biblical ethics, but are in reality oposite... It appears that many Isrealis had also lost their common sense and do not understand taht Islam ITSELF is the ROOT cause of terorism and violence these days.

Ilhan Omar is just doding what oran, Hadith and Sira tells her to do: HATE JEWS. Mohamed hated Jews becaues he was a flop when his old bos and wife Kadija died and Jews were succesful traders in Arabia.. Muslim hatred of the Jews has nothing to do wht Israel does or does not do...they are brain washed into blaming and hating jews in their childhood.

Peres made a monumental blunder by inviting egyptian terrorist Arafat into west Bank and Gaza and Israel is now suffering consequences of Perez and rabin not studhing Islam ITESLF to understand taht no peace is possible with Muslims until their are completely defetaed and transferd to lands freom which they had expelled the Jews who libed among Muslims..

The Sanders 2020 presidential campaign recently hired Claire Sandberg in a senior role.

By World Israel News Staff

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) recently hired Claire Sandberg in a senior role in his 2020 presidential campaign, The Washington Free Beacon reports. Sandberg recently praised Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for criticizing the pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC.

Sandberg will join the Sanders campaign as director of organizing, “a senior leadership role tasked with channeling Sanders’s grassroots support into a proactive volunteer-initiated network,” the Free Beacon reports.

Sandberg had consistently defended Omar, the news site reports. Days after Omar received backlash for tweeting on Feb. 10, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” referring to $100 U.S. bills, her way of saying that AIPAC pays politicians to support Israel, Sandberg said Omar was “unfairly vilified.”

Sandberg also said that people should support Omar with monthly contributions.

“If we think @IlhanMN was unfairly vilified for correctly pointing out the role of money in shaping US policy on Israel, then we should support her not just w/ tweets but also w/ money. I just set up a recurring monthly contribution and I hope you will too,” Sandberg tweeted.

This is not the first time Sanders has hired someone with controversial views relating to Israel.

Simone Zimmerman briefly served as the Jewish outreach coordinator for Sanders 2016 presidential campaign, a job she held for two days.

She was let go after remarks she made in March 2015 on Facebook came to light in which she described Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “arrogant, deceptive, cynical, manipulative a**hole.” She also directed a “f** you” at the prime minister.

Zimmerman was hired in March of this year as U.S. director for the anti-Israel NGO B’Tselem. B’Tselem routinely accuses Israel of “apartheid” and “war crimes.”

In 2007 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tasted power for the first time. That was the year that she became the first woman to serve as speaker in the House of Representatives. When Democrats lost control of the House and Republicans had the majority after the mid-term election in 2010 she lost that power. Her removal from power as House Speaker in 2010 was not enough to stop Nancy Pelosi. Instead of stepping to the side and allowing others a chance to rise through the ranks to become a leader Nancy Pelosi would spend the next four election cycles hoping that the Democrats would once again reclaim control of the House. Last November Democrats made the comeback that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent four election cycles fighting for and she was able to take back the seat she first held in 2007.

It took Nancy Pelosi less than three months before she lost control of her party. The new Democrat majority did not line up and come together under her vision for how she wants things to do. The first signs that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not have control of these Democrats came when House Republican Kevin McCarthy forced Democrats to take a stand and vote on tough issues. He used a maneuver that is known as a motion to recommit. McCarthy was victorious more than once when he got moderate Democrats to vote with the Republicans on important issues.

Watching her Democrats vote with the Republicans did not sit well with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. After the votes took place Pelosi would scold the Democrats who did not vote in line with their party because of the lack of the unity that their votes showed. She tried to pressure them into seeing that Congress is a “team” sport. Moderate Democrats saw through her words and realized that her arguments were insincere at best. They argued that they needed to vote to protect themselves and ran on restoring bipartisanship to Congress. They knew that bowing down to Nancy Pelosi and the other Democrats who support her meant going against the Americans who voted for them.

Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has not made things any easier for Pelosi who is struggling to get House Democrats to unite as one voice. On more than one occasion Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar from Minnesota has made anti-Semitic comments. In one of her controversial statements Omar claimed that support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins.” We all know what she was saying when she made that tweet. Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar was claiming that American politicians had been bought and paid for by Jewish money. She offered a piss poor half-hearted apology that time. The anti-Semitism from Omar did not end there. When she claimed that Jews who support Israel aren’t loyal to the United States she didn’t even attempt to make another half-assed piss poor apology.

I’m not a fan of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but I will acknowledge she demanded a retraction on Ilhan Omar’s offensive statement and developed a resolution to rebuke Omar’s words. Republicans did the same thing against Steve King in January. The difference between Nancy Pelosi and the Republicans is that the Republicans stood tall, they stayed strong and severely punished one of their own. Nancy Pelosi, on the other hand, did just the opposite.

When a scandal arose due to statements from Omar House Speaker Nancy Pelosi turned weak. Instead of standing her ground when Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others defended Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar and challenged her authority, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hesitated. The discipline that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was originally prepared to enforce upon Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar turned into the anti-hate resolution that was passed last week. The wording of the resolution was so different from the original resolution that would have disciplined Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar that Omar laughed in Pelosi’s face when she voted for it.

The Republicans stood tall and strong against Republican Rep. Steve King who has been in the House for nine terms. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke and kissed the ass of a woman who has been in the House for less than six months. A leader does not break. A leader can’t allow themselves to break. A leader has to stand strong against those who are underneath them. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has clearly demonstrated that she is no leader. It takes more than a gavel, a nice office, and a title to make one a leader. Nancy Speaker may hold the title House Speaker, but that’s all she holds…an empty title.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not the one calling the shots. She is just another place holder. She is nothing more than a glorified front person and that is only until Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar and her supporters decide it’s time for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to go. If Democrats maintain the majority during the next election cycle Americans should not be surprised if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finds herself replaced by Ilhan Omar or one of her supporters.

As seen on Hannity

Former Democratic U.S. Senator and vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman told Sean Hannity Monday that the Democratic Party's "loudest voices" cannot be seen as denigrating the United States and its economic system.

"Our economic system has worked for most of the American people. It's working for most of the American people today. Unemployment is at a very low level," said Lieberman, who was Al Gore's running mate in 2000 and served in the U.S. Senate until 2013.

Lieberman, who caucused with Democrats but was an independent in his final term, emphasized that some of the new voices in the party - including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) - are putting forth policies that are unrealistic.

"The government simply cannot afford everything they’re promising. ... Who’s going to pay for it? You can’t get enough money out of the top one percent to pay for this. It’s going to be the middle class," he said, adding that he doesn't recognize the party as the same one he joined when John F. Kennedy was president.

The Jewish Connecticut native also took issue with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for her recent criticism of Israel, labeling her rhetoric as "blatantly anti-Semitic."

He said Omar's "lies" do not represent how Democrats feel about Israel, but she was not strongly condemned by her House colleagues.

"If you let lies live unresponded to, they will spread," he warned.

Washington Examiner

Just when you think the Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., anti-Semitism fiasco has died down, one of her freshman colleagues says something that keeps the issue very much alive.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., is upset that certain members of her Democratic cohort have offered mild criticism of Omar’s frequent anti-Semitic outbursts. Tlaib is so upset, in fact, that she has accused her own party of being Islamophobic.

The moment came during an interview with the Circus' Alex Wagner, who asked, "Why do you think people in your own party reacted so strongly against what [Omar] said?"

The Michigan congresswoman responded, "You know, I'm trying to figure it out. It's just this past week, I feel, and I know this would be somewhat shocking for some, but I think Islamophobia is very much among the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party.”

She added, “And I know that's hard for people to hear, but there's only been four members of Congress that are of Muslim faith. Three of them currently serve in this institution. More of us need to get elected, but more of us need to understand as we come into this institution that I have a lot of work to do with my colleagues."

For reference, Omar claims Israel has " hypnotized the world" to its “evil.” The Minnesota lawmaker alleges wealthy Jews dictate congressional Republicans' support for Israel by paying them. Omar claims pro-Israel members of Congress and American Jews have divided loyalties. She also said last month during a town hall meeting that she wanted to talk about “the political influence in this country that says it is okay for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country."

Tlaib defended Omar’s town hall remarks, saying she is inspired by her colleague’s "strength.” Tlaib also claimed Omar is "being targeted just like many civil rights icons before us who spoke out about oppressive policies."

The Michigan congresswoman herself is no stranger to dog-whistling on the issue of anti-Semitism. In January, as the Senate considered a bill defending the Israeli government from boycotts, Tlaib sounded the dual loyalty horn.

The senators who backed the pro-Israel bill “forgot what country they represent. This is the U.S. where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality,” her office said on social media. “Maybe a refresher on our U.S. Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away.”

I have so many thoughts on the Omar issue, and not just the usual expression of shock at her casual anti-Semitism.

First, this entire ordeal has added to the shattering of my earlier perception of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as a ruthless operator with a vice-like grip on her caucus. The freshmen Democrats continue to run circles around the Speaker, publicly humiliating her, destroying utterly all earlier notions of Pelosi's cold-blooded competence.

Secondly, it’s stunning that there has not been greater pushback against the idea that it’s Islamaphobic to criticize Omar’s flagrant anti-Semitism. The obvious problem with this argument is that it suggests Islam is inherently anti-Semitic, that to object to anti-Jewish bigotry is to object to Islam. Is that really the defense they want to go with?

Finally, the idea that the Democratic Party has singled out Omar, or that it has even "reacted so strongly" to her remarks, is utter nonsense. They are cowards, yes, but not Islamophobes. Democrats have gone out of their way to excuse, defend, and downplay Omar’s tirades. They say it’s merely a matter of cultural differences. They say she doesn’t understand the words that come out of her mouth. They say she’s learning. They say she is “ living through a lot of pain." They even avoided censuring the congresswoman last week when they produced a sham resolution condemning all forms of hate, not just anti-Semitism. Omar has faced no consequences whatsoever for her remarks about Israel and American Jews. The worst she has suffered is the verbal equivalent of a mild slap on the wrist.

To look at how the Democratic Party has handled Omar's anti-Jewish rants and conclude it has an Islamophobia problem requires either an act of willful dishonesty or extreme paranoia.

Considering this is Tlaib we’re talking about, it could go either way.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) blamed Islamophobic Democrats for their strong reaction against Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent anti-Semitic comments.

In an interview with The Circus released Sunday, host Alex Wagner asked Tlaib, “Why do you think people in your own party reacted so strongly against what [Omar] said?”

“You know, I’m trying to figure it out. It’s just this past week, I feel, and I know this would be somewhat shocking for some, but I think Islamophobia is very much among the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party,” she responded. “And I know that’s hard for people to hear, but there’s only been four members of Congress that are of Muslim faith. Three of them currently serve in this institution. More of us need to get elected, but more of us need to understand as we come into this institution that I have a lot of work to do with my colleagues.”

“So, you think Democrats have some Islamophobia and that’s at the root at some of this consternation?” asked Wagner.”

“I think our country’s struggling with it,” said Tlaib.

Omar has come under fire in recent months for multiple anti-Semitic statements.

Most recently, she said that politicians who support Israel “hold an allegiance to a foreign country.”

Last month, she said that Israeli advocacy group AIPAC paid off lawmakers for their support.

In 2012, Omar tweeted, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

Islamaphobia is an oxymoron. Fear of peanut butter is a phobia. Islam has done more damage than communism, ask anyone from Senegal. I do not fear Islam any more than I do Jehovahs Witnesses, but to caress them is wrong.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib is defending her buddy, Rep. Ilhan Omar from anti-Semitism condemnation by turning it around on Americans, claiming both political parties suffer from Islamophobia.

”Islamophobia” is a term of hate and bigotry used by hateful people to deliberately cause insult, in an attempt to silence others with a valid voice. This is because there is no such thing as ”Islamophobia”. It does not even exist. It is impossible. A ”phobia” is having an irrational and unfounded fear of something. But even people born into the Arabian cult of supremacy are terrified of its most ardent and faithful adherents.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, defended her colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar from backlash within their own party regarding the Minnesota representative’s controversial remarks deemed by some to be anti-Semitic.

Omar suggested on Twitter that pro-Israel politicians are bought by groups like AIPAC and that those who support Israel have an “allegiance to a foreign country.” Her remarks sparked much condemnation, including several of her Democratic colleagues.

In a preview clip of an interview on Showtime’s “The Circus,” Tlaib suggested that “Islamophobia” within their party could be behind the swift condemnation for the comments.

“You know, I’m trying to figure it out. It’s just this past week, I feel, and I know this would be somewhat shocking for some, but I think Islamophobia is very much among the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party,” Tlaib answered. “And I know that’s hard for people to hear, but there’s only been four members of Congress that are of Muslim faith. Three of them currently serve in this institution. More of us need to get elected, but more of us need to understand as we come into this institution that I have a lot of work to do with my colleagues.”

Now Democrats are getting accused of Islamophobia. How does it feel? Do Democrats like being falsely accused of hate? Democrats need to show these foolish, obnoxious freshmen that their behavior is unacceptable, and yet I predict they won’t because it takes an adult to enforce rules.

If there was such a thing as Islamaphobia, I think Americans would be justified to have it.

Let’s look at it from this perspective. Take the events of 9/11, and then the news clips from the Iraq war in which they were chanting death to America. So it is alright for them to shout for our lives to end, then hijack our planes, cause death and destruction in our backyard but the moment we express our dislike of them, we are called ignorant and racist.

I know they aren’t all responsible but who do we trust how else are we supposed to show our dislike for their actions. A lot of good people lost their lives for something they had nothing to do with I guess being in the wrong spot at the wrong time. I was always taught a friend to my enemy is an enemy of mine. Next time why don’t you people just let them in with wide open arms!

These three stooges (Omar, Tlaib, and AOC) who are creating all the attention they can muster with their hate rhetoric against this President while insulting Israel and American Jews trying to divide people, which has nothing to do with color, religion or phobias. Political hate ideology is their MO that is upsetting House Democrats. That kind of agenda Nancy Pelosi can’t seem to control in her caucus makes Nancy ineffective becoming a standby puppet spewing excuses that are turning off the American people.

It is time to retire Nancy. The three stooges would like nothing better!

On Tuesday, Dick’s Sporting Goods announced it is removing firearms from 125 of its stores, according to news reports. The move follows the company’s ban, in the wake of last year’s Parkland shooting, on assault-style weapons.

While Dicks’ gun stance has no doubt hurt their sales they’ve been stagnant or declining in profit since 2009. Their net income and gross profit have both been in the dumps since 2014 and beyond. Online retail competition is likely the reason for this. Dick’s was in trouble even before their virtue signaling.

That is what happens when you take sides with the far left and liberals. You lost your followers, which were gun owners and hunters when you decided to get into politics and made your choice. Good riddance. I stopped shopping there even for my kid’s sports equipment. They decided their own fate.

Honestly, I have not walked back into the place since they did the firearms fiasco and with this move, I will not ever again!

Dick’s Sporting Goods is planning to eliminate guns and other hunting products from 125 stores in 2019, a move that comes as the retailer continues to suffer fallout from its controversial decision to ban the sale of some firearms.

The Coraopolis, Pennsylvania-based chain removed the category from 10 stores in 2018, locations which then “had a strong margin rate improvement,” CEO Ed Stack told investors on Tuesday.

The in-store sections will be replaced with “merchandise categories that can drive growth,” he said.

Following a shooting in Florida in February 2018 that left 17 students and staff dead, Dick’s hiked the minimum age to purchase a gun to 21 and prohibited the sale of AR-15 style rifles. [via Fox Business]

So, you drop certain firearms which leads to a major drop in sales so your solution is to completely eliminate guns and hunting equipment? If I were a stockholder I’d be selling right now. This company won’t last another year, two at best.

But thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have to help solve the problem that's in front of us. Gun violence is an epidemic that's taking the lives of too many people, including the brightest hope for the future of America – our kids. https://t.co/J4OcB6XJnu pic.twitter.com/6VoKwJe8tH

I’m willing to bet Dick’s sporting goods has caused more injuries, maybe including deaths, by selling golf equipment than by guns. They’d better start the rebranding now. Jane’s Clothing Stores doesn’t have a very good ring to it.

Every guy who went there for guns and hunting stuff also brought his wife along for sports bras and jackets, and perhaps picked up a golf club or two. Dick’s screwed up big time, the number of customers they lost was huge. No business can survive on man-bun liberals alone.

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested that President Donald Trump is not human when a reporter asked her about criticisms she made about Trump and former President Barack Obama on Monday.

Fox News’ Guerin Hays peppered Omar with questions about her negative comments regarding Obama’s stance on immigration during a Politico interview last week.

Hays asked, “Do you think President Obama is the same as President Trump?”

“Absolutely not. That is silly to even equate the two. One is human and one is really not,” Omar answered, after ignoring his first questions.

She then got on an elevator and left.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar said in the interview. “We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

After facing backlash for the comment, Omar claimed the reporter misrepresented what she said.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has not learned anything from House Democrats’ weak resolution on antisemitism. In fact, she feels vindicated by it — so much so that she retweeted an attack on Meghan McCain on Thursday accusing McCain of “faux outrage” over the issue.

Instead of showing any sort of contrition whatsoever, @ilhanmn @ilhan is retweeting attacks on ⁦@MeghanMcCain⁩ for daring to criticize her antisemitic remarks pic.twitter.com/zrNIcLMihS

When Omar accused pro-Israel groups of bribing members of Congress last month, Democratic leaders forced her to apologize. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) warned of “further action” if she persisted.

Last week, when Omar claimed that pro-Israel Americans had “allegiance to a foreign country,” Rep. Eliot Engel, the chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, accused her of making a “vile anti-Semitic slur” and demanded that she retract and apologize, though he stopped short of saying she should be kicked off the committee (as the Republicans had kicked Rep. Steve King of Iowa off his committees after comments about white supremacy.)

The party also promised to pass a resolution condemning antisemitism on Wednesday, hoping that would solve the problem.

But under pressure from the radicals in the caucus, Democrats delayed their vote and watered down the resolution to include almost every other group that could conceivably have been a target of discrimination. The text did not even mention Omar (though a resolution rebuking King had mentioned him by name in the very first sentence).

After the vote Thursday, Omar offered no statement of contrition. Instead, she took a victory lap, celebrating what she called “the first time we have ever voted on a resolution condemning Anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation’s history.” (In fact, Congress voted to condemn anti-Muslim bigotry in the days after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, showing extraordinary grace after nearly 3,000 Americans had been killed in the name of radical Islam.)

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters Thursday that she would not ask Omar to apologize, saying, “I do not believe she understood the full weight of the words.”

Fellow “Justice Democrat” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that Omar’s remarks were “part of a learning process.” Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) also offered excuses: “I think this is a learning moment for her.”

Update: On Friday, Pelosi continued in that vein, saying that Omar “doesn’t understand” the meaning of words:

But Jewish Democrats in Minnesota had enough of such excuses long ago.

Last month — before the latest episode of Omar’s antisemitism — the Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported that State Sen. Ron Latz (D-St. Louis Park) had organized “an anti-Semitic intervention of Omar” late last year, out of concern over her past rhetoric on Jews and Israel, in the hope that she would be more sensitive when she took up her congressional seat in Washington.

As Latz put it, the effort was a failure. He concluded: “At some point, it becomes a little tired to hear her say she’s being ‘educated.’”

So this certainly is a learning moment — but Omar is learning the opposite lesson of the one intended. She is learning she can attack Jews with total impunity.

And perhaps Jewish Democrats are learning where their party really stands.

On Monday, JEXODUS Spokeswoman and Former Trump Campaign Staffer Elizabeth Pipko told “Fox & Friends” that it was a shift in policy under the Obama administration that sparked anti-Israel sentiments in the Democratic Party. Pipko discussed the strong U.S. Israel relationship under the Trump Administration and the Embassy move to Jerusalem as obvious successes for the Jewish community in America. However, Pipko said the Jewish left fails to recognize these achievements.

President Trump tweeted Pipko’s words Monday, “‘Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party. We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worse & worse. There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people.'” Elizabeth Pipko, Jexodus”

“Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party. We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worsts & worse. There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people.” Elizabeth Pipko, Jexodus.

In 2016, 71% of Jewish Americans voted for Hillary Clinton. This is where the group has immense ground to cover. Pipko said that the organization plans its official launch in April. The group will take on Jewish voters in New York and Florida and will eventually tackle battleground swing states.

Last week, the Democrats passed a weak resolution condemning all forms of hate. The resolution failed to mention Rep. Ilhan Omar by name after she publicly pronounced her anti semitism. The cracks in the Democratic Party are widening as its leaders fail to condemn anti semitism.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland hit back at some of the most visible new Democrats in Congress when asked Monday by Fox News about the push to impeach President Trump: “We’ve got 62 new (Democratic) members. Not three.”

Hoyer apparently was referring to Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who regularly have fought the Trump administration's policies since entering Congress.

TLAIB SAYS SHE’LL INTRODUCE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST TRUMP THIS MONTH

Earlier Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., revealed she’s opposed to impeachment in the absence of evidence that is “compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan.”

“I’m not for impeachment,” Pelosi told The Washington Post in an interview published Monday. “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

Ocasio-Cortez replied in a Washington Examiner interview: “I happen to disagree with that take.” The congresswoman added, “But you know, she’s the speaker. … I think we’ll see.”

Hoyer also said about Pelosi’s words: “It seems to me that she said what we’ve been saying. Maybe a little stronger.”

He also said he thought anything the House might attempt would die in the Senate, which requires 67 yeas to convict and remove the president: “Nobody thinks there is going to be a conviction in the Senate.”

Tlaib said she would introduce articles of impeachment against Trump later this month. She and Omar last month signed a “pledge” to impeach Trump.

Conservatives struck back at Media Matters for America (MMFA) late Sunday and early Monday in response the organization’s recent hit job on Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Critics of MMFA noted the organization never fully assumed accountability for its president’s own old blog posts — in which he used words like “trannies,” “homos” and degraded “Bangladeshis” — and it never seems to call for the ousting of liberals caught saying similarly dubious things, like Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and MSNBC host Joy Reid. (RELATED: Media Matters Wrote Racist, Anti-Semitic, Anti-‘Tranny’ Blog Posts)

MMFA routinely targets the advertisers of Fox News media hosts and digs through decades of media history in an attempt to get conservative pundits and reporters fired from their jobs.

Donald Trump Jr. told The Daily Caller that MMFA’s selective outrage is “disturbing,” explaining, “The anti-Tucker outrage mob is so clearly acting hypocritically and in bad faith for purely partisan political reasons.”

“How many of these people have called for Joy Reid to be fired from MSNBC for her homophobic comments? Or for Rep. Omar to be stripped of her committee assignments for her anti-Semitic comments?” Trump Jr. questioned. “Why would so many people apparently want to live in a world where we allow professional trolls & faux outrage mobs to weaponize statements from a decade ago to get their political enemies fired from their jobs?”

MMFA declined to attack MSNBC host Joy Reid, who repeatedly wrote homophobic comments and peddled conspiracy theories on her personal blog in the 2000s. Reid apologized for some of the posts but also claimed with no evidence that some of them were written by hackers. (RELATED: Joy Reid Keeps Changing Her Story)

MMFA has similarly refused to comment on old blog posts by its president, Angelo Carusone, that contain derogatory comments toward transgender people and racist remarks.

Ned Ryun, the CEO of American Majority, brought up MMFA’s silence on Joy Reid and its overall partisan agenda.

“Their entire purpose for existence is to take out conservatives in media and politics,” Ryun said. “They’re a partisan hit squad trying to delegitimize and de-platform conservatives … serious-minded people should understand this is political warfare and tell Media Matters to go pound sand.”

Senior Townhall columnist Kurt Schlichter denied that MMFA engages in hypocrisy, instead calling its entire operation a “lie” and a “cheesy grift.”

“It’s all just a cheesy grift where they fake outrage to silence political opponents because they know their own garbage ideology won’t play with Americans,” Schlichter asserted. “Nobody’s fooled. They should go pound sand.”

Carlson, a Daily Caller co-founder, has received significant support from conservative media figures in the face of Media Matters’ attacks. Joe Concha, a media reporter and columnist for The Hill, predicted that the outrage over Carlson’s old comments won’t last long because it “appears selective.”

“I think this story goes nowhere because the outrage appears selective,” Concha told the Caller. “If you’re Media Matters, you can’t omit any coverage of Joy Reid and then in the same breath demand Carlson be removed from the air. Anyone looking at this situation objectively can see that.”

Leave it to Jim Acosta of CNN to gaslight the White House for asserting that the Democratic Party is now courting blatant anti-Semitism in their ranks.

At the first press briefing in 42 days on Monday, the CNN correspondent got into a jousting match with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over recent comments made by President Trump, who accused Democrats of being the anti-Jewish party.

Last week, the president said in response to House Democrats' drafting a House resolution on hate that failed to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) anti-Semitic statements regarding Israel:

I thought yesterday's vote by the House was disgraceful, because it's become, the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They've become an anti-Jewish party. And I thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else if you get an honest answer. If you get an honest answer from politicians, they thought it was a disgrace. The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party; they’ve become an anti-Jewish party, and that’s too bad.

According to Jim Acosta, President Trump condemning anti-Jewish sentiment so forcefully was "beneath everybody" and asked Sanders if Trump would tone it down.

"Isn't that kind of rhetoric just sort of beneath everybody?" Acosta asked Sanders, according to Fox News. "Do you think that the president has thought, at all, going into the 2020 campaign that the rhetoric just needs to be lowered? Whether it’s talking about Democrats, the media, immigrants, or should we just plan on hearing the president use the same kind of language that we heard in 2016 and all through the first couple years of this administration?"

Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the only shame in this scenario belongs to the Democrats for failing to condemn Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitism.

“Democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn specific comments and have refused to do that,” Sanders said. "I think that is a great shame. The president has been clear on what his position is, certainly what his support is for the people and the community of Israel."

Acosta asserted that Trump slamming the Democrats for hating Jews is "patently untrue."

"Democrats don’t hate Jewish people, that’s just silly," Acosta said. "It’s not true."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has asserted that Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic comments were just a different "use of words." "The incident that happened, I don’t think our colleague is anti-Semitic," Pelosi said. "I think she has a different experience in the use of words, doesn’t understand that some of them are fraught with meaning that she didn’t realize."

When Sanders tried calling on another reporter, Acosta kept firing questions away, reminding the press secretary of when Trump said there were "fine people on both sides" following the Charlottesville protest where a white supremacist domestic terrorist plowed his car into a crowd of people, killing one woman.

"Essentially suggesting that there were very fine people in the Nazis," Acosta said.

"That’s not at all what the president was stating," Sanders replied. "The president has been incredibly clear in consistently and repeatedly condemning hatred, bigotry and racism in all of its forms, whether it’s in America or anywhere else. To say otherwise is simply untrue."

CNN's @Acosta: "Democrats don't hate Jewish people that's just silly. It's not true." @PressSec: "They should call out their members by name."

Acosta then suggests Trump thinks "there are very fine people" who are Nazis.

Ilhan Omar is no stranger to controversial statements. She was just put in the hot water after her anti-semitic statements regarding Israel.

Just days after that, she made controversial statements about Obama, saying that him and Trump were the same person in essence.

She was just confronted by a reporter who ran into her in Capitol Hill in DC. Her triggered response says it all.

Fox News’ Guerin Hays asks Ilhan Omar about last week’s Politico article: “Do you think President Obama is the same as President Trump?”

Omar: “Absolutely not. … One is human the other is not”

Omar’s dehumanizing remarks come after she was slammed last week for anti-Semitism.

Can you believe that?! She just said one is human, the other is NOT.

She just called President Trump a non human. What is she implying? That he is less than a human in her eyes?

These dehumanizing comments are exactly what drives liberals and other anti-Trump folks to become radicalized.

When someone sees someone else as less than human, it opens the door to so much hatred and violence against that person or group.

We saw this back in Nazi Germany when Hitler called jews less than humans also. She must be reprimanded for this comment.

Watch Tucker’s BLISTERING Monday opening Monologue below:

The same media that refuses to condemn Ilhan Omar and who also defends Democrat rapists, have started a campaign to remove Carlson from Fox News.

Check out what Ben Shapiro from the Daily Wire wrote:

This was, from the first, an obvious political hit. Media Matters, contrary to media descriptions, isn’t a “media watchdog organization.” It is a political smear factory designed to perform precisely that function against anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton. The organization was founded by professional smear artist David Brock, in conjunction with the Center for American Progress, an organization itself founded by John Podesta, the Clinton White House Chief of Staff. Hillary Clinton herself advised Brock on the creation of the organization. Mega-donor Leftist George Soros has poured money into the organization, announcing in 2010, “Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast. I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.” Media Matters had regular strategy calls with the Obama White House.

Media Matters’ sole purpose of existence is to ruin the lives of conservatives. They have a history of doing anything they can to dig up anything of conservatives which they then alter so people take them out of context. They’ve gone after Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Megyn Kelly but have defended Democrats like Joy Reid for her homophobic comments that she made years ago.

This idea of “media hit jobs” has become a growing trend during the Trump era. Media outlets are so driven by hatred that they will twist the truth to their best abilities in an effort to ruin the lives of various conservatives. Often times, these efforts are successful when the targeted conservatives are forced to retire or are pushed out.

NATIONWIDE POLL: Should Trump CUT Pensions For Former Presidents?

Historically, Republicans are very weak when it comes to defending themselves in situations such as this. They become overwhelmed by the far Left mob who pretends to be “morally outraged” and they eventually submit and say sorry.

BOOM! Whether you think Carlson’s comments were bad or not is one thing, but the comments were not nearly bad enough to remove him from Fox.

The same “mob” that is attacking Tucker Carlson had nothing to say about the anti-Semitic comments from Ilhan Omar, had nothing to say about Joy Reid’s anti-gay comments and had nothing to say when all the liberal news celebrities were getting busted for sexual assault. The list goes on. But Carlson’s words taken out of context “morally outrage” them apparently. What a joke!

It’s nice to see Carlson standing his ground. Republicans for the most part, (besides President Trump) are weak when it comes to standing up to the far Left mob. They become so scared and overwhelmed by the liberal “mob” that they end up apologizing even thought the Left doesn’t want an apology. They want a resignation. Why should Carlson apologize for something that the Left wouldn’t apologize for if the roles were switched?

Evangelical leader Laurie Cardoza-Moore has called for the DOJ to investigate Ilhan Omar for helping raise money for the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR, two groups that support terrorism and the overthrow of governments around the world. Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) and host of the Christian television program Focus On Israel, with a weekly audience of more than a billion viewers in 200 countries and is asking for the removal of Ilhan from Congress.

Under 18 US Code § 2385, Advocating overthrow of Government, “whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof-Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned…”

Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) and host of the Christian television program Focus On Israel, with a weekly audience of more than a billion viewers in 200 countries, has launched a nationwide campaign—and a petition—demanding Omar’s dismissal from Congress.

“While she has already established her credentials as a vehement anti-Semite, Ilhan Omar is far worse than that,” Cardoza-Moore said. “Omar may be in violation of a federal statute for fundraising for two Muslim Brotherhood charities that seek to destroy America.”

“We the people demand that the Justice Department conduct a full and thorough investigation into her possible connections with the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates. Omar’s anti-Semitic comments do not reflect the values of Americans,” Cardoza-Moore declared, pointing to the recent revelation of Omar’s participation as a keynote speaker at events for the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated groups IRUSA and CAIR, which suggests her support for subversive factions aligned to destroy America and Western civilization itself.

Subhuman Deplorables

03/11 4:24 pm

Fascist. Nazi. Deplorable. Toothless hillbilly. The names Trump supporters are called by the Left convey a level of contempt I have not seen in my half century on this earth.

During the heated contest of the 2016 Presidential election, the country divided itself into two fierce camps. The Clinton supporters, along with Antifa and BLM, perpetrated violence on Trump supporters; harassed those wearing MAGA hats or shirts, threw eggs and other projectiles and even chased them down and beat them up.

Remember the rioting in the streets with property damage – store front windows smashed, cars burned? The violence has even been fueled by leaders such as Maxine Waters who urged her supporters to publicly confront and harass members of the Trump Administration. Remember Press Secretary Sanders being forced to leave The Red Hen Restaurant? Remember debacle of the Kavanaugh hearing and the treatment of his family?

Well, one of the newest members of Congress, the Freshman from Minnesota, Rep. Ilhan Omar, recently described Trump as “not human.” Though it comes as no surprise that this is the thought process of the Left, it is shocking that she so casually admits it.

For some time now, the MSM has poured fuel on the hatred of Trump and his supporters and anything that is representative of support for our President. Wearing a MAGA hat while you shop? Well, even if you’re an octogenarian, you’re fair game and a target. A middle school fund raiser for March of Dimes? Sorry, MAGA hats aren’t allowed. Teenager wearing a MAGA hat at the March for Life? We’ll get right in your face beating a drum and have the entire MSM accusing you of harassing us!

The Left claims to be tolerant and inclusive, and they are – as long as you don’t deviate from their views.

Against abortion? You hate women! Want a secure border? Racist! Oppose Gun Control? Murderer! Oppose the Green Deal? You’re sacrificing the next generation! Christian or Jewish? Sorry, your religion oppresses others, triggers others – no prayers in public, we’re offended!

Should we be surprised that the Leaders of the Left view President Trump and his supporters as sub-human? Sadly, no. They’ve been telling us that loud and clear for a long time now.

This woman really isn’t doing herself any favors at this point.

As we mentioned before, Ilhan Omar had some iiiiinteresting thoughts on Obama.

Basically… he’s “just as bad” as Trump.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” she said. “His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was.”

“And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore,” she continued. “We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

She then tried to walk her comments back by releasing the recording of the interview.

Here’s the thing…

The audio proves that’s EXACTLY what she said.

She has since DELETED her tweet.

And she’s trying a new approach.

She’s now saying she couldn’t have compared the two… because Trump ISN’T HUMAN.

Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., told Fox News on Monday that it was “silly” to compare President Trump with former President Barack Obama, adding: “One is human. The other is really not.”

Omar’s comments came after she told Politico in an interview published last Friday that the Obama administration was responsible for the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world.”

No one’s really talking about it.

I wonder, however, how much the left would be talking about it if a Congressman implied that Obama wasn’t “human.” Or that she “isn’t human.”

Yeah. I’m sure that would go over well.

In the wake of the anti-Semitism scandal involving Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) that rocked the Democratic Party last week, Omar's close friend and fellow Muslim representative Rashida Tlaib was discovered following an Instagram page that posts images depicting Jews as rats, vampires, Nazis, the plotters of the 9/11 attacks, and members of global conspiracies that control finance and media.

Tlaib's Instagram page has 244,000 followers but follows only 1,080 accounts, suggesting her follow of the anti-Semitic page was intentional and not the result of a practice of following back her followers. The page, called free.palestine.1948, is largely devoted to posting anti-Semitic memes and images about Jews and comparing Israelis to Nazis. Tlaib's following of the account was first disclosed by the Capital Research Center.

Since the disclosure, reports the Capital Research Center, Tlaib unfollowed the free.palestine.1948 account.

When a reporter asked Minnesota Rep Ilhan Omar about her criticisms of President Trump and Barack Obama, Omar tried to walk back all the nasty things she said about Barack Obama and to elevate Obama above Trump by suggesting the president isn’t human. When asked to compare Obama and Trump, Omar said, “Absolutely not. That is silly to even equate the two. One is human and one is really not.”

That statement seems funny coming from someone who has been helping raise money for terrorists. In February, Omar helped fund raise for CAIR that was an unindicted co conspirator in the Holy Land Fund, the largest fund raising group in the United States, raising money to aid terrorism.

Evangelical leader Laurie Cardoza-Moore on Thursday called on the Justice Department to investigate Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for possible connections to the radical Muslim Brotherhood.

Under 18 US Code § 2385, Advocating overthrow of Government, “whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof-Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned…”

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar said in the interview. “We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

After facing backlash for the comment, Omar claimed the reporter misrepresented what she said. (RELATED: Omar Facing More Accusations Of Anti-Semitism)

She tweeted, “Exhibit A of how reporters distort words. I’m an Obama fan! I was saying how Trump is different from Obama, and why we should focus on policy, not politics. This is why I always tape my interviews,” and attached an audio file of the video.

Omar ended up deleting the tweet after people claimed the audio backed up Politico’s original reporting.

Jeanine Pirro said: “Think about this: She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

For that, Fox rebuked her and demanded she apologize. She had no genuine reason to do so. Sharia is indeed inveterately antisemitic: the Qur’an demonizes the Jews in numerous ways. It depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

Sharia also mandates that women cover their heads:

“And tell the believing women to reduce their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.” (Qur’an 24:31)

“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (Qur’an 33:59)

“Narrated `Aisha (the wife of the Prophet): `Umar bin Al-Khattab used to say to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) “Let your wives be veiled” But he did not do so. The wives of the Prophet (ﷺ) used to go out to answer the call of nature at night only at Al-Manasi.’ Once Sauda, the daughter of Zam`a went out and she was a tall woman. `Umar bin Al-Khattab saw her while he was in a gathering, and said, ‘I have recognized you, O Sauda!’ He (`Umar) said so as he was anxious for some Divine orders regarding the veil (the veiling of women.) So Allah revealed the Verse of veiling. (Al-Hijab; a complete body cover excluding the eyes).” (Bukhari 79.14.6420)

Wearing hijab is a sign that one accepts these imperatives. That is not necessarily true, as lots of women of all perspectives wear headscarves, but when a Muslim woman wears hijab, it’s reasonable to surmise that she accepts the Qur’an and Sunnah, the sources of Sharia. Sharia denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the equality of rights of women, and the equality of rights of non-Muslims. Wearing hijab is a sign of adherence to Sharia. So what did Judge Jeanine Pirro say that was wrong about Ilhan Omar? She asked questions that need to be asked.

“Rep. Ilhan Omar Thanks Fox News For Condemning Jeanine Pirro – Update,” by Greg Evans, Deadline, March 11, 2019:

“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” Fox News said in a statement last night. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

Today, Omar thanked Fox News for its statement, tweeting, “Thank you, @FoxNews. No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.”…

I am very regularly on President Trump, defending him and yet holding him accountable for what I think are bad mistakes but wow. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an embarrassment. She lacks in the mental department.

Whoever writes her statements and questions needs to use smaller words as this idiot can’t even read those long words much less understand them.

Amazingly funny how out of her league she is but she undoubtedly feels intellectually empowered by the position she holds. And while I’ve complained about the exorbitant amount of free coverage she gets, I have to admit that her shenanigans are quite entertaining.

Ocasio-Cortez used her time during the hearing to push her political agenda against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and against the fossil fuel industry.

“Why was the bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

“I don’t know how to answer that question because we weren’t,” Sloan responded.

“Uh, so in finan–, you’ve, you were financing, involved in debt financing in CoreCivic and GEO group, correct?” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

The calm responses destroyed her smug line of specious questioning cooly reframed her agenda. He was good. He knew exactly where she was going to go. She got busted, but she hung in there.

Why on earth would the bank be responsible? It is stupid of her to ask that they take responsibility for what the loans were for; it is the borrower who should be responsible. And she majored in finance? The scariest part is that several million people nod their head in agreement at her idiotic line of questioning. To them, she makes perfect sense.

Make no mistake; this is how the left intends to go after the gun and ammo industries. They will pass legislation that allows a manufacturer to be held liable for every gun death. Then they will extend that to hold liable the material suppliers, and the shipping companies and the banks and any other business that is in any way remotely connected to a gun or ammo manufacturer. Once no other companies can afford the liability of doing business with the gun industry, they will effectively be strangled out of business, all without ever passing legislation to ban guns.

There is a reason why activist freshman representatives are generally not placed on committees. But when you have brain-dead senior reps like Waters around, I guess the bar is pretty low to start.

On Sunday FOX News “strongly condemned” Judge Jeanine Pirro for asking viewers if Rep. Ilhan Omar’s hijab means she follows Sharia Law.

Judge Jeanine attacked anti-Semite Ilhan Omar on Saturday and asked if her hijab means she’s against the Constitution.

Fox News Channel issued an official statement on Sunday: “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

FOX News released the statement after FOX producer Hufsa Kamal, a Pakistani-American, tweeted her disgust against Judge Jeanine Pirro on Sunday.

Mufsa Kamal tweeted:

@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx. https://t.co/ZfKhRhlvM3

— Hufsa Kamal (@hufkat) March 10, 2019

Mufsa’s remarks made it into a report on The Hill. Mufsa inserted herself into the story.

Now it appears Hufsa Kamal, who is a producer for Bret Baier on FOX News, has a long history of vicious attacks on conservatives.

Hufsa has attacked Michelle Malkin, Candace Owens, Dan Bongino and Charlie Kirk.

Hufsa Kamal made her account private on Monday.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib raised up the religious victory flag during her keynote address at the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) 15th annual banquet.

Amy Mek of the Federalist Papers highlighted this so-called victory speech in her article. Tlaib has been running around with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar creating havoc inside the Democratic Party and building the pillars of a takeover.

“‘We always said ‘the Muslims are coming’… I think we’re here! We’re not only everywhere in all kinds of different governments but, mashallah, we’re in the United States Congress,” she said.

They sure are and their goal have never changed, only their tactics. We keep saying that the United States will never become what happened in the U.K. but things are not slowing down. Americans had better educate themselves and use the Bible and the story of Isaac and Ishmael as a starting point.

Hassan Shibly, Executive Director of CAIR-FL, had a huge smile bringing Tlaib up to the stage with a hearty “Allahu Akbar! The first Palestinian-American Congresswoman, our dear sister Rashida Tlaib!” he said.

Rashida Tlaib presents at HAMAS-linked CAIR-Chicago Conference

Rashida explains that envisioning her enemies (Lobbyists & Special Interests groups) DEAD brings her joy & inspiration

CAIR is established by U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee” which is Hamas in America pic.twitter.com/yc7kkT7PHl

Tlaib introduced herself to this nation, and possibly foreign news reporting sources too, who may be judging her, but hopefully not judging all American women attaining elective office in Washington, DC., in the worst possible way. I had never heard of Tlaib before, but her political introduction laced with profanity will assure that she won’t be forgotten for the vulgar hateful language she carried into her very beginning as an elected Congresswoman, D-MI.

This woman’s lack of class, exemplified by her language and usage in front of her son is a good example of the Democrats entering congress today; along with the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Water’s who care and have done nothing for their constituents are going to be the ruination of this country. If individuals like them who embrace socialistic/Marxist philosophies continue to be elected and our constitution ignored, there is little hope for this nation. A lawless society has no future!

Trump Derangement Syndrome is really a fact, and the Democrat Party search for quality of its Representatives has obviously been lowered, if it ever existed.

The Fox News Channel on Sunday condemned host Jeanine Pirro’s remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MND) use of a hijab and said the issue has been dealt with directly.

Pirro is under fire after appearing to suggest on her Saturday program — Justice with Judge Jeanine — that Omar, whose repeated antisemitic remarks prompted the House to pass an anti-hate resolution last week, wears a hijab in defiance of the Constitution. “Think about this: She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from?” Pirro said in her opening segment. “Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

In a statement Sunday, Fox News denounced Pirro’s remarks, saying: “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.

The network also released a statement from Pirro, who said her intent was not to suggests Muslims could not be loyal to the United States. “I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American. My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution,” Pirro said. “I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”

A Fox News online producer, Hufsa Kamal, criticized Pirro’s remarks on social media, writing: “@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx.”

Certain newsrooms lit up in 2018 after former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke gave an enthusiastic two thumbs up to one of Laura Ingraham’s many anti-immigration tirades.

Weirdly enough, these same newsrooms have yet to report on the former grand wizard cheering Rep. Ilhan Omar’s, D-Minn., attacks on Israel and American Jews.

How strange!

Last year, Ingraham claimed the “America we know and love doesn't exist anymore” partly because immigrants have contributed to dramatic “demographic changes.” Duke was jazzed to hear her say this.

“One of the most important (truthful) monologues in the history of [mainstream media],” the former Klansman wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

Newsrooms immediately sprang into action, with many of them going so far as to suggest (either explicitly or implicitly) that Duke’s applause was proof of Ingraham’s bigotry.

“Laura Ingraham’s Anti-Immigrant Rant Was So Racist It Was Endorsed by Ex-KKK Leader David Duke,” the Daily Beast reported.

The Huffington Post got in on the action with a series of report and op-eds, including one titled, “Laura Ingraham Is Mainstreaming White Supremacy, But She’s Not Alone.”

The Associated Press reported that Duke had endorsed Ingraham. Politico’s morning rundown reported that Duke had endorsed Ingraham. Esquire called it a “David Duke-Approved Monologue.” The list goes on. The media coverage was so persistent and unflattering, in fact, that it prompted Ingraham to repudiate the former Klansman on-air.

It’s also worth noting that many of the same newsrooms that covered the Ingraham affair have also covered Duke’s praise for President Trump. Their coverage of his pro-Trump remarks has also implied (or declared outright) that the former grand wizard’s support is proof of the president’s racism.

But then Omar came along. Suddenly, a Duke endorsement is a non-story.

Last Thursday, as the Minnesota congresswoman avoided a formal rebuke from her party despite engaging in several clearly anti-Semitic tropes, Duke tweeted, “By Defiance to Z.O.G. Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!

“ZOG” is his abbreviation for “Zionist Occupation Government,” which is his own cute term for “federal government.” Don't ask me. Your guess is as good as mine.

Duke also tweeted, “Simply stated, [Omar] is important because the dared expose the gorilla in Congress that nobody dares speak! There is no salvation of our people heritage, rights and freedom until ZOG is overthrown!”

He added elsewhere that Omar shows real potential for “ building partial coalitions.”

It has been four days since Duke hailed Omar, who has yet to repudiate his endorsement. Not even one of the newsrooms that rushed last year to cover his praise for Ingraham has covered his similarly enthusiastic support for the Democratic congresswoman.

As of Monday morning, the Daily Beast has published nothing on Duke's applause for Omar. Neither has the AP, the Huffington Post, Politico, or Esquire. Surely, these newsrooms don’t believe Duke cheering a right-wing cable news host deserves coverage, while his support for a sitting member of the U.S. House of Representatives deserves none. What is the explanation, then, for the disparity in coverage? I have a guess: Certain members of the press are willing to contradict their own news judgment in service of protecting a progressive congresswoman.

The reporters and editors who rushed to cover the Ingraham story last year likely never considered the argument against the Fox News host could also be used against a Democratic lawmaker. They thought it was safe to report on Duke’s remarks, suggesting all the while that his support for Ingraham is evidence of her racism. But now Duke has praised Omar, and the same people who reported last year that his endorsement is proof of guilt are finding themselves in an awkward position. They must pretend either that Duke didn’t cheer for Omar or pretend it’s not a newsworthy event compared to his support of Ingraham. “Ignorant or lying” isn’t a great look for a supposedly serious news organization.

I have a proposal: Instead of doing this dance every time Duke resurfaces from whatever bog he’s haunting to applaud either a conservative or a liberal lawmaker, let’s all agree to never speak of him again.

We'll be better off for it. Trust me.

During Sunday’s “Kasie DC” on MSNBC, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) took to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) defense on her ongoing antisemitism, saying she does not think the freshman congresswoman “intended her comments to be antisemitic.”

Hirono argued that in today’s environment, “everything we say can be viewed in a certain way,” and then turned the conversation into blaming President Donald Trump for exposing “a lot of the divisiveness and issues in our country.”

“I don’t think she intended her comments to be antisemitic, but we’re in an environment now where just about everything we say can be viewed in a certain way,” Hirono told host Kasie Hunt. “And what we have is a lot of hate speech against immigrants, against Muslims, against all kinds of people. And that is why I’m glad that when the House actually took a vote that they basically condemned all hate speech. And we certainly are hearing a lot of hate speech from the Republicans and the right.”

“[F]or them to suddenly rear up on their hind legs and go after one person, I think we should be looking at ourselves and saying that we have an environment now where basically President Trump in his campaign really exposed a lot of the divisiveness and issues in our country that we’ve never faced up to, including racism, including anti-immigrant and anti-LGBTQ and these are all areas that we need to face as a country,” she continued.

Rep. Ilhan Omar thanked Fox News for strongly condemning one of their own, Judge Jeanine Pirro for questioning the Minnesota Congresswomen’s wearing of the hijab and whether or not her loyalties are with the United States or her religion.

Related: Judge Jeanine Has The Right To Ask About Ilhan Omar’s Hijab; Americans Want To Know Too!

Pirro also questioned the Democratic party while bringing up how Islam is “antithetical” to the Constitution, which she is 100% correct.

Thank you, @FoxNews. No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth. https://t.co/haqm7NWRw0

This is what Omar and the Democrats want to see. Fox News released a statement to “strongly condemn” Pirro’s comments, and that “they do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

Why is Fox News doing this? They aren’t scheduled for a Democratic 2020 primary debate, and if they get one after this, their actions against Pirro would be the reason. Most already claim Fox News has gone to the left on many things including their opinion shows and identity politics, but Democrats feel they are still too “far right,” attacking them at every turn.

We are supporting you Ilhan, and we condemn the bad and offensive comments of Jeanine pirro, that against the freedom to paractice everyone’s faith.

Your “we” dont include me . I DO NoT support this wolf

Perhaps what we need to do is review all the cases @JudgeJeanine has presided over and review all of them for political, racial or religious bias. @CNN @washingtonpost @HuffPost @thehill. I still can’t believe a judge is talking like this. How should anyone expect a fair trial???

I stand with @JudgeJeanine – I believe a woman who wears a hijab shows she adheres to Sharia Law, which is antithetical to our Constitution. Islam, itself, does NOT call for wearing a hijab. Omar’s antisemitism, to me, proves she’s a radical Sharia Islamist. Cat is out of bag!

I’m all for free speech… but how long will they allow hate-mongers to fill the airwaves… there are huge percentages of uneducated Americans who listen to such nonsense and cheer her bigotry on. A “JUDGE” no less.. someone who is supposed to have a good moral compass.. 🤕

Jeanine Pirro asked if Rep. Ilhan Omar’s hijab means she follows Sharia law, which Pirro claimed is “antithetical to the United States Constitution.”

“Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59 tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Unfortunately, Judge Jeanine Pirro might be right on this point.

Sharia Law is not compatible with the US Constitution or US Law and Omar has clearly shown her loyalty in the beginning months of her term, and it isn’t the US Constitution.

Why should we force ourselves to accept a culture which doesn’t accept ours, especially when this culture came to our land and tried to change us without compromise? It’s not a phobia. People have real reasons to fear Muslim ideology based on thousands of years of experiencing Muslim led the country’s killing or forcing out people of other beliefs.

More from Wayne Dupree

I agree with the no-head covering, and it amazes me that she was able to get the House to approve of her wearing it. When this was first approved a few months ago, I thought it was a step toward Sharia Law.

She has the right to her freedom of religion. She does not have the right to push her religion and other things associated with her religious beliefs on others. She is entitled to her opinions and thoughts, but she is not entitled to take the personal belief she has about another religion and its people and condemn them.

Don’t you find it ironic how Omar fled here as a refugee but she continues to try and put the laws of her land into our free country, Women like this should not come here unless they truly want to be free, to become a US citizen they are supposed to love this country and obviously she does not!

She is supposed to be a US citizen, so she should know better. She was elected to represent the people of her state and NOT her beliefs with her religion. She is pretty pathetic saying the things she has said. She does not know the differences between church and state.

==> We’re being censored by social media and need your help to

continue to fight against the opposition media lies. <==

Her remarks and behavior have been anti-American. One of her first actions in Congress was to write a letter to a federal judge demanding leniency in sentencing four Somali refugees convicted of trying to join ISIS to commit terrorist acts domestically against US citizens. It doesn’t get any more un-American than that! If she cared at all about the American citizens she was stupidly elected to represent, her focus would be on their well being and not the interests of Palestine and Muslim countries.

Look, folks, the left, and the radical Muslims are winning. They are framing the national debate. They have pretty much taken over the Democratic party. This is no fun and games. What they seek is to revolutionize America: to elevate Islam, and to create more open borders that will ensure a socialist one part welfare state.

If we don’t stop them, they will win. This means getting out and voting, donating time and mother, standing up to the left in very conversation and holding them accountable. Taking to the streets will be the next step.

In the past, lefties have flocked to political pilgrimages to newly created socialist countries to drink in the collectivism and praise the new regimes. It happened in Cuba with the Venceremos Brigade sugar cane-cutting harvest, it happened in Nicaragua with the Sandalistas (ain't that right, Bill de Blasio), and it certainly happened in Venezuela during the salad days of socialist Hugo Chavez (until socialized Cuban Castrocare actually killed him in 2013). Oliver Stone, Sean Penn, Naomi Campbell, and Dial Joe-4-Oil Kennedy were all in, and don't think they weren't loud about it.

Well, now a new invitation has been issued to the current defenders of socialism - from Venezuela's democratically elected president, Juan Guaido:

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, speaking in an exclusive interview with FOX Business’ Trish Regan, is telling those on the far left, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. of New York and Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, that the root of Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis is directly tied to socialism.

"It’s about a lack of information,” Guaidó said about Ocasio-Cortez and Omar on Monday. “So if you want to talk about the economy, we’re seeing 53 percent rates, 1,000 percent in inflation, lack of basic products, medication and food. If we look at the day-to-day suffering of the Venezuelan people that’s not about numbers it’s about human beings. It’s about lives, people who are suffering right now who see their lives in danger and who cannot provide for themselves as human beings to sustain a society and the world. So regarding the crisis going on in Venezuela, I invite everyone to see what’s going on in Venezuela.”

He'd like to educate these socialists about what socialism looks like up close, given that he lives in it. All that free health care? Come see what it looks like in power-darkened Venezuela, where preemies freeze to death without their incubators, doctors have fled the country, the remaining medical staff can't get to work on a now gutted electrical subway system, and Band-Aids are scarce. Free food? The Chavista socialist elites have let it rot on the docks and stolen the money for it. Come see the Venezuelans eat zoo animals, or dine from garbage trucks. The socialist water is now supplied from the sewer. Aid? They've blocked it from coming in. Problems with obesity? The socialist diet has solved it - with Venezuelans now losing an average of 24 pounds in just the last year. Free money to pay for social services? Only if you like carting it in wheelbarrows, given the country's gargantuan inflation rate -- which by the way is the result of Ocasio-Cortez's own proposal to print money. Free education? Ask the millions of students out protesting in the streets as the protest vanguard what free education is like.

So much of what is strangling Venezuela now is precisely what leftists such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Ilhan Omar are proposing. It's no surprise that the pair of them are among the few people out there still defending a monstrous socialist regime. Now they're hearing from the legitimate leader of the Venezuelans, the man who may well end up taking the reins if the detested and failed regime is dislodged, and it's not pretty for them.

A political pilgrimage indeed, it's time for a reality tour for all the Chavista shills out there, still creepily promoting the nightmare of socialism.

Radical Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is at it again, this time trashing America and Ronald Reagan. During a talk on Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez stated that America is “garbage” and that Reagan presented a “racist” vision for the U.S.

During a conference in Austin, Texas, the radical socialist had some outlandish things to say:

“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens,” Ocaiso-Cortez said. “So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were ‘sucks’ on our country.”

“And it’s this whole tragedy of the commons type of thinking where it’s like because these one, this one specific group of people, that you are already kind of subconsciously primed to resent, you give them a different reason that’s not explicit racism but still rooted in a racist caricature,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “It gives people a logical reason, a ‘logical’ reason to say, ‘oh yeah, no, toss out the whole social safety net.'”

“RACISM RACISM RACISM. EVERYTHING IS RACIST.” This radical agenda by the Left continues and it doesn’t seem that it will end any time soon.

WATCH the video below provided by Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire below:

— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) March 9, 2019

Ocasio-Cortez went on to talk about her ‘Green New Deal,’ Medicare for all and her $15 minimum wage proposal, all of which are destined for failure. This is what she said:

“I think the thing that is really hard for people to sometimes see is that when we are on this path of a slow erosion and a slow, slow, slow, just like move away from what we’ve always been, we’ll be a hundred miles, you’ll, you know you won’t even realize that you’ve drifted a hundred miles,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “So, when someone’s talking about our core, it’s like oh this is radical, but this isn’t radical, this is what we’ve always been.”

PETITION: Tell Mueller To STOP Wasting Our Taxpayer Dollars On The Phony Russia Probe!

“It’s just that now we’ve strayed so far away from what has really made us powerful, and just, and good, and equitable, and productive, and so I think all of these things sound radical compared to where we are but where we are is not a good thing,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “And this idea of like 10% better from garbage, is, shouldn’t be what we settle for, it’s like this like it feels like moderate is not a stance it’s just an attitude toward life of like hmmm.”

Keep in mind that this is all coming from the woman who is defending Ilhan Omar (an anti-Semite), proposed a deal that bans all forms of transportation and someone who is knee deep in campaign finance violations. She is the LAST person who should be trashing our country.

While much of the media continued to focus on Rep. Ilhan Omar, new scandals arose for President Donald Trump that could prove to be quite damning.

www.theepochtimes.com

Published  1 month ago

President Donald Trump’s claim that “the Democrats hate Jewish people” is giving a boost to what appears to be an embryonic movement encouraging Jews, traditionally a key Democrat voting bloc, to abandon the Democratic Party.

Axios reported the president made the comments to Republican donors March 8, based on statements by attendees. Trump also reportedly said he couldn’t grasp how any Jew could vote for a Democrat these days, given the party’s track record.

The news report didn’t mention if he referenced numerous comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a Muslim, that were widely perceived as anti-Semitic. Congressional Democrats refused to condemn Omar by name and instead, on March 7, the House approved a watered-down resolution denouncing “anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism and other forms of bigotry.”

Trump’s comments give voice to growing sentiments among Jewish Democrats and others that the party’s tolerance of heightened anti-Semitism in its ranks and its hostility to the Jewish state of Israel should cause Jews to stop supporting it.

As Democrats have lurched leftward, they have also generally been reluctant to condemn the flagrant anti-Semitism of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and of Women’s March organizers Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, as well as that exhibited by leaders of Black Lives Matter, a movement that the Democratic National Committee formally endorsed in 2015.

Lifelong Democrat Andrew Stein, who was a New York state assemblyman, wrote in a Fox News op-ed that three newly elected radical House Democrats–Omar, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York—“have demonstrated repeatedly their hatred of Israel in an increasingly disturbing pattern of anti-Semitism.”

“Apologies are no longer enough. That is why I am calling on my fellow Jews to join me in pulling our support from the Democratic Party,” he wrote. Trump and the Republicans are now “the true friends of Israel and the Jewish people” and have “embraced values that were once embraced by the Democratic Party,” by, for example, relocating the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and opposing Palestinian terrorism.

Others are already using the new portmanteaus “Jexit” and “Jexodus,” which couple “Jewish” with “exit” and “exodus,” respectively, to describe this budding movement. The linguistic innovation is modeled after “Brexit,” the movement to take Britain out of the European Union, and, in the United States, after “Blexit,” a movement to get blacks to quit the Democratic Party.

Radio host Wayne Allyn Root is calling upon his “fellow American Jews” to “JEXIT” the party which “coddles, caves and embraces Jew hatred.”

“It’s time to escape to the promised land of the GOP, where Jews are welcomed and appreciated; where capitalism is embraced; where extreme vetting is in place to keep bad people out, who would do harm to Jews; where Israel is America’s best friend in the world.”

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is using a different portmanteau, “Jexodus,” to describe the effort. The Democrat-controlled Congressional Progressive Caucus and Congressional Black Caucus are closing ranks to defend Omar’s anti-Semitic comments, Greenfield wrote at FrontPageMag.

The “Jexodus momentum is slowly building,” he wrote. “It will decisively split millennials between Jewish and leftist allegiances … [and] be a slow and ugly process.”

“Exile is a difficult condition … [but] [t]here is no future for the Jews on the Left. History amply testifies to that, from the Soviet Union to Latin America. The Jexodus is inevitable.”

A website, Jexodus.org, has appeared online. It states: “We are proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics. We reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left. … We’re done standing with supposed Jewish leaders and allegedly supportive Democrats who rationalize, mainstream, and promote our enemies. We’d rather spend 40 years wandering in the desert than belong to a party that welcomes Jew-haters.”

ALEX WAGNER: Why do you think people in your own party reacted so strongly against what [Rep. Omar] said?

REP. RASHIDA TLAIB: I am trying to figure it out. It’s just this past week, I feel, and I know this would be somewhat shocking for some, but I think Islamophobia is very much among the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party. And I know that’s hard for people to hear, but there’s only been four members of Congress that are of Muslim faith. Three of them currently serve in this institution. More of us need to get elected, more of us need to understand as we come into this institution that I have a lot of work to do with my colleagues.

WAGNER: So you think Democrats have some Islamophobia and that’s at the root of some of this consternation?

REP. TLAIB: I think our country’s struggling with it.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday that she’s against impeaching President Trump “unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan.” Which is exactly the point — there isn’t.

The speaker is surely up to speed on what evidence Democrats actually have against Trump and has a fair sense of what Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s report will say. And she recognizes that it’s nothing that will persuade anyone who hasn’t wanted Trump ousted since Election Day 2016.

Which means that moving to impeach him would be not just “divisive to the country,” as she says, but also bad for Democrats — since it would show them as unable to resist the most demented demands of their base.

This, when last week’s pathetic failure to confront Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism already exposed them as in thrall to extremists.

Now, will Pelosi call off the dogs? Committee Chairmen Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff will keep on subpoenaing away, and grandstanding for the cameras — in hopes of maybe somehow, someday, somewhere finding some genuine dirt, while at least harassing the president, his family and associates and feeding an endless string of breathless this time, Trump is going down reports.

Just as impeachment would be bad for the Democrats, chances are Americans will note that the press has been blaring those “scoops” for more than two years now, and not a one has panned out. Keeping it up only shows that not just the Democratic Party, but also most of the media, can’t stop themselves from playing to the unhinged left.

Pirro set off a wave of backlash after the comments on her Saturday night show “Justice with Judge Jeanine” that appeared to suggest Omar is loyal to Sharia law because she wears a hijab.

“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” Fox News said in a statement late Sunday. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

Pirro also issued a statement pushing back on criticism and attempting to clarify her comments.

“I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American,” Pirro said.

“My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution.”

Pirro added that she invites Omar “to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”

“Judge Jeanine’s” comments on Saturday came in response to an anti-Semitism controversy roiling the Democratic party over Omar’s criticism of Israel. Critics in both parties have said that some of Omar’s remarks have pushed anti-Semitic tropes about “loyalty” to Israel.

In critiquing Omar on Saturday, Pirro argued that her alleged “anti-Israel sentiment” did not come from the Democratic Party.

“Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested,” Pirro said. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Omar is one of the first two Muslim women in Congress, and is the first lawmaker to wear a hijab.

Fact-checking isn't her strong point.

Breitbart

Published  1 month ago

The Washington Post‘s Eugene Scott has decided to fact-check President Donald Trump’s claim Friday: “The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They’ve become an anti-Jewish party, and that’s too bad.”

The president made that statement after Democrats passed a weak resolution on antisemitism that failed to rebuke Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her recent hateful remarks and submerged antisemitism among other forms of discrimination. Omar refuses to apologize and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is defending her. Even some Democrats were angry at the outome: “This shouldn’t be so hard,” said Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL).

But the Post decided to ride to the rescue, fact-checking Trump’s opinion with arguments that had nothing to do with the present circumstances, and recycling false claims from Democrats that the president himself is antisemitic.

Scott’s first argument against the idea Democrats have “become an anti-Jewish party” was to cite the voting patterns of American Jews. Roughly 70% of the Jewish vote goes to Democrats and 30% to Republicans, and there are more Jewish Democrats in public office than Jewish Republicans. If Democrats were really “anti-Jewish,” Scott argued, Jews would not prefer to vote Democratic or to run as Democrats in large proportions.

But Trump’s argument has to do with what Democrats are becoming, not what they have been. It is likely that at least some Jewish voters will agree in the next election.

Moreover, the reason Jews vote for Democrats has little to do with the party’s position on issues relating to the Jewish community and more to do with the fact that Jews tend to be liberal. “Nationally, American Jewish voters cite healthcare (43 percent), gun violence (28 percent), Social Security and Medicare (21 percent) and the economy (19 percent) as being among their top two issues. Only 4 percent listed Israel among their top voting issues, a decline from 9 percent in 2016,” the radical left-wing group J Street, which often opposes Israel, said in a press release after the 2018 elections. Generally, more observant Jews and more pro-Israel Jews have tended to vote Republican in recent years.

Scott then went on to argue that “the president has come under fire for remarks that some found anti-Semitic.” He tried to debunk the idea that Democrats could “become an anti-Jewish party” by arguing that Trump himself was “anti-Jewish.” It was a rather pathetic attempt, recycling several familiar, and false, attacks.

He began with the Charlottesville hoax: “After white nationalists marched through Charlottesville, chanting ‘Jews will not replace us,’ Trump called some of the protesters ‘very fine people,’ a comment that drew harsh condemnation.” As is clear from the transcript of Trump’s remarks, he condemned the white nationalists and neo-Nazis several times — a fact Scott failed to mention. In the phrase “very fine people,” Trump was referring to peaceful protesters against the removal of a Confederate statue as opposed to the white supremacist group.

Scott next claimed that Trump “defended .. the use of an image of a six-point star, which resembled the Star of David, over a pile of $100 bills” during the 2016 campaign. The image was used inadvertently and was quickly replaced; even left-leaning Politifact, which criticized Trump for “lack of message discipline,” came to the conclusion that “it seems unlikely that the Trump campaign intended to put out a Star of David image.”

Next, Scott claimed, “At a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition in 2015, Trump made comments that reinforced stereotypes about Jewish people.” He did not cite the comments directly — because as both Trump and the audience understood, he was joking. Among laugh lines like, “You just like me because my daughter happens to be Jewish … The only bad news, I can’t get her on Saturday,” Trump also used edgier material: “I don’t want your money.” The audience did not find the jokes offensive because of the context of familiarity.

(Notably, Scott neglected to mention Trump’s immediate Jewish family members anywhere in his article.)

Finally, Scott noted that “in the final days of the campaign, [Trump] made headlines for running an adthat referenced the ‘global power structure’ attempting to control the world through Clinton while featuring images of prominent Jewish leaders like George Soros.” Soros is Jewish, but he is not a “prominent Jewish leader.” If anything, given his anti-Israel views and advocacy, he is the opposite. The ad itself was a standard attack on the “political establishment,” not Jews, and the supposed “Jewish leaders” included Janet Yellen, then-chair of the Federal Reserve. The only reason the ad “made headlines” was because Democrats, and the media, were (and remain) primed to pounce on anything Trump said or did as evidence of latent antisemitism or racism.

At that point, Scott ran out of ammunition. He allowed that Trump has been good for Israel, but added that “being pro-Israel and being the party of American Jews is not the same thing.”

Notably, Scott did not even try to debunk Trump’s claim that “Democrats have become an anti-Israel party.” That part seems beyond debate.

Rashida Tlaib is one of the new “diverse” congresswomen that have recently entered Congress and her among others are shaking up some controversy.

You have Ilhan Omar who is a clear anti-semite, and then you have this other one, Rashida Tlaib, who has links to Hamas after this new sick video just leaked, it’s disturbing.

From The Federalist Papers:

Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib delivered a stark statement as she delivered the keynote address at the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ 15th annual banquet.

The event was held in February but the video of her comments to CAIR has recently surfaced and they have many concerned.

“‘We always said ‘the Muslims are coming’… I think we’re here!” she said as the crowd cheered in approval.

““We’re not only everywhere in all kinds of different governments but, mashallah, we’re in the United States Congress,” she said.

The video, which surfaced on Twitter, began with Executive Director of CAIR-FL, Hassan Shibly introducing her.

“Allahu Akbar! The first Palestinian-American Congresswoman, our dear sister Rashida Tlaib!” he said.

“Thank you brother Hassan,” she said before saying something in Arabic that made the crowd cheer in approval again.

She then began to attack President Donald Trump saying “And it was after this President not once, [not] twice, but three times issued a Muslim ban against our community.”

“Thank you so much for inviting me to support a civil rights organization that is around the unified fight against hate and racism in our country,” she said.

This is all happening in our country and it’s making me sick. We’ve been warning Americans about the invasion, and that it won’t be with attacks and violence.

They will invade us from the inside out and claim that diversity is our strength. No, Unity is our strength.

America First with Sebastian Gorka

When the American Conservative Union asked if I wanted to address CPAC this year, of course I said yes. Then came several weeks of discussion as to what the subject of my speech should be. This is the biggest event of its kind in the nation, with more than 200 speakers and this year in excess of 10,000 attendees, more than half under the age of 25, so I am not envious of the job Matt Schlapp and Dan Schneider have to do to pull off such a feat. (Especially when your speakers include the president and the vice president and all the security that entails).

The topic we eventually settled on was the threat Russia poses to America, a subject I am always happy to address given my family history. With parents who suffered under a Stalinist dictatorship and a father who escaped from a Communist political prison, providing a reality-check on the menace posed by a Russia still run by a KGB colonel comes easy.

However, on the day, eight minutes into my speech I decided I needed to change tack. Russia is a threat, but it is not the Soviet Union. Instead I felt compelled to talk about the real threat we face as the free-est nation on God’s Earth: the rise of socialism within our borders.

My speech was on the morning of the first day of CPAC, and the remarkable thing was, as the next three days unfolded, my decision to ad lib on that specific topic was echoed again and again—without any “central planning” from the organizers—by speaker after speaker. From Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA, to Mr. Brexit, Nigel Farage, to Mark Levin, and finally the vice president and President Trump himself. (If you missed the president’s barnburner, do yourself a favor and watch it. And bookmark the link so you can return to it when you feel like the radical crazies are winning and you need a laugh).

All of us ended up reflecting on the fact that, like a zombie that just will not die, Karl Marx’s ideology of destruction is back, and this time not as an external threat held to by a nation that wants to destroy or enslave us, but in the guise of an erstwhile mainstream American party that has been taken over by extremists.

Yet those who have surrendered to the deadly utopianism seem to be suffering from a psychosis of some kind. Democrats by and large deny they are socialists, so much so that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stood to clap during the president’s State of the Union as he pledged that America will never be a socialist nation. This at the same time that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) announced her “New Green Deal,” a centralization of power designed to destroy the free-market completely. No gasoline engines. No air travel. All buildings demolished and then rebuilt to a politically correct code. Not to mention the rationing, or eventually phasing out of red meat so we can get a grip on bovine flatulence. (If you want to see the original green scam plan Ocasio-Cortez’s office tried to deep-six, you can find it here.)

If patriotic Americans ever capitulated and the plan were implemented it would give more power to the federal government than any Communist state ever had. Yes, there may have been breadlines in Moscow, Prague, and Warsaw, but they never banned meat or automobiles.

The fact is, the Democratic Party is in big trouble. Its old white leadership thought they could allow the fringe types into the club and control them, dilute their extremism. They are failing. This burgeoning internal civil war is clearest not when it comes to new disagreements but rather, in confronting old skeletons.

The Left has always had a default setting that was anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish. Just look at the history of the crypto-anti-Semitic BDS movement and where it was born. But in the past few weeks, with blatant anti-Semites like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib actually winning seats in Congress as Democrats, we have a blatant institutionalization of Jew-hatred at the highest levels of the Democratic Party. Pelosi said she would deal with Omar’s public statements of hate. Then she removed Omar’s name from the censure motion and then it was delayed. Next it was watered down even more by focusing on all “hatred,” not the specific and vile comments from the freshman congresswoman. Now, with Pelosi storming out of the latest meeting on the measure, it looks as if the party has a full-fledged revolt on its hands.

America’s Founders deliberately built our federal system in a way so as to keep it permanently hobbled in some respects. The checks and balances and the separation of powers were designed to effect gridlock, not obviate it, and were meant to prevent a domestic “King George scenario.” But did they ever envisage a day when one of our two parties would embrace the principles of a totalitarian policy? Note every declared frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination has endorsed AOC’s green socialist plan. With a worldview informed in its totality by the tenets of Judeo-Christian civilization, could they have ever imagined institutionalized hatred of half our heritage being normalized?

The Democrats are in trouble. The question remains, how much damage will they do to our Republic and our friends and allies before their own internal civil war leads to the expulsion of the extremists from our political culture?

Breitbart “You won’t even think you’re in America,” she said of the district that elected Ilhan Omar.

MEWC Director of Speical Projects Anweya was speaking at an MEWC press conference calling for Rep. Omar to resign. She said she has cousins and family members “called whores for showing” part of the back of the arm in Iraq, “a country where the women used to wear mini skirts.”

“It is truly because of people like [Rep.] Ilhan [Omar], when the government is infiltrated and it starts this way because it happened in Iraq and it happened against us,” she went on. “Iraq used to be a country where Jews lived freely, where Assyrian Christians lived freely, where even Armenians were there, and even moderate Muslims lived until sharia law took place and everyone was affected.”

“Americans truly need to understand that this will affect you one day if you don’t make a change right now,” she said of sharia, adding she knows the early signs of genocide.

Although the House has failed to condemn anti-Semite congresswoman Ilhan Omar, some Democrats have had enough of her anti-Israel agenda and want her out of office.

So how are they going to push her out of office? According to Breitbart, several Democrats have began searching for Democrat primary challengers in Minnesota’s fifth congressional district to remove her from office when 2020 rolls around.

It’s hard to tell if this attempt of removing her from office will be successful considering leadership in the House has made it clear that they don’t intend on condemning Omar and holding her accountable for her anti-Semitism.

POLL: Do You Think Nancy Pelosi Is Mentally Unfit For Office?

The chances of a Republican winning Minnesota’s fifth district are extremely slim considering it is a predominantly Democratic area.

Check out what Breitbart reported:

“Republicans will never win this district,” one Democrat source familiar with the effort said, pointing to the fact that the district Omar represents is rated by the Cook Political Report’s Partisan Voting Index as a D+26 district–meaning it is heavily gerrymandered to favor Democrats by 26 percent over Republicans.

This same Democrat went on to say, “Many Democrats simply are simply too afraid to say anything because Islamophobia has become the knee jerk reaction to anyone who dares criticize her,” a second Democrat told Breitbart News.

“To be labeled a racist or Islamophobe for simply calling out what we all know to be abhorrent, is not just a slippery slope, it’s deeply troubling. And it’s forcing allies out of the party. To say that Democratic leadership doesn’t know what to do would be an understatement. They are in a state of total paralysis. Ilhan rode into Congress with Ocasio-Cortez, and is, unfortunately, becoming more and more popular along with her. Omar represents a faction of the party that is, frankly, anti-intellectual. Their flirtation with religious extremism exemplifies that. A primary challenge wouldn’t just be healthy, it’s absolutely necessary. The longer Ilhan Omar remains in office, the longer we lose credibility in calling out extremism in all forms. It is a total quagmire.”

PETITION: Tell Mueller To STOP Wasting Our Taxpayer Dollars On The Phony Russia Probe!

The only hope of removing Omar from office would lie in the hands of a Democrat challenger. The same district that Omar represents was once ran by Minnesota’s attorney general Democrat Keith Ellison who cleared a way for the anti-Semite when he stepped aside to run for attorney general. Ellison has some radical views as well when it comes to extremism. Check out what Breitbart reported:

Ellison, who like Omar is a Muslim, had his own problems with connections to extremism, having written under a pseudonym in law school in a student newspaper defending Louis Farrakhan and supporting the anti-Israel Boycott Divest Sanction (BDS) movement. Ellison later denounced Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and attempted to distance himself from the antisemitic leader of the Nation of Islam. And while Ellison challenged the Democratic Party’s establishment, dragging the party further left on many issues and pushing the DNC his way with a bitter race against current chair, which landed Ellison in the vice chairman slot for a time, he still got along well with many national Democrats. Ellison also avoided the matter becoming a major national scandal as has played out for Democrats over the past week plus.

Unlike Omar, Ellison was better at hiding his extreme views and was able to get along with the rest of the Democratic Party. Omar has made it very clear that she doesn’t plan on apologizing for her hurtful words considering her past and continued use of rhetoric concerning the Jewish community. Although this is awful for our country, her extreme views are creating a divide in the Democratic Party which looks to be helping Republicans for 2020.

A video is making its rounds on Twitter via @RashaMK showing Rep. Ilhan Omar speaking to a room and using the words: “I know that as long as I breathe that I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible.”

I am not trying to be funny here, but I think using the word “as long as I breathe” might not be a good choice of words. Someone may see that as an option.

She took an oath to uphold the constitution and the first time she votes not to; there should be class action suits from all over the country aimed at her. At the least have her searched when she enters the house.

“And so, I don’t ever want you guys to worry about me. Truly. You know Rashida sent me a text message. She said, “I know you told me you survived war and you’re tough but I at least want to come and give you a hug.” And I said I don’t need a hug but I truly did survive a war (???).

“I am fine. I know what my mission is. I know what my purpose is. I know that as long as I breathe that I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible. So, you can send me your prayers and whatever support that you see fit. But I don’t ever want you to lose sleep about an article you read about me.”

She did receive support from one of her apocalypse sisters Rep. Rashida Tlaib:

I am so honored to serve with @IlhanMN, an incredible courageous woman. Every time I worry about her and the ugly attacks, I remember what she said to me two months ago: "I survived war, I can survive this." https://t.co/2wyrC0m6ry

If America likes what she is saying it would be news to me. Why should she live here unless she is trying to transform this nation into what ISIS profess it would be, Muslim.

We’re being censored by social media and need your help to continue to fight against the opposition media lies.

Now that the anti-Semites/Muslims have finally gotten into the Congress along with the Socialists, they will ratchet up their hatred openly. As one Dem said, “If that’s what her constituents want then there is nothing wrong with what she is saying”!

So if David Dukes runs and wins in his district and then comes to Congress and votes for white supremacy that’s ok? It’s a double standard alright!

We must be dedicated to bringing a strong Republican House and Senate in our next midterms. We must stay in front of this.

She may be here to change our nation into Muslim beliefs, but it won’t work in a free society like America. She is a fool to think she can make any changes in our country.

Breitbart

Published  1 month ago

Far-left NBC News covered up its own findings about the effect Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) antisemitic remarks are having in her own home district.

Desperate to craft a puff-piece to protect Omar and the Democrat Party, NBC published the following headline Sunday night: “Far from Washington, Rep. Omar’s constituents see the Israel controversy in a different light.”

The story opens with this Pablum: “Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments about Israel have consumed Washington. But here in Minnesota’s diverse 5th Congressional District, a pillar of progressivism that handed Omar a decisive victory in November’s midterm elections, there has been far less outrage.”

And in the opening graphs, we are told Omar’s antisemitic conspiracy theories about American Jews and Israel, which are no different than the garbage spewed by the alt-right, which have earned Omar the admiration of David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the KKK, are seen as no big deal back home:

In interviews here, including with residents who are Jewish and Muslim, few of Omar’s constituents voiced any anger at the lawmaker, even if they found the remarks troubling. One Jewish leader said she would be open to a good-faith foreign policy debate.

To the director of the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center, a large mosque 10 miles south of this city, the furor is overblown.

“Anti-Semitism is real in this country,” Mohamed Omar, who is not related to the freshman Democrat, said in an interview in a private study, as children nearby hurried to Friday afternoon prayers. But the controversy, he said, is a “distraction.”

But buried under six paragraphs, we finally learn that Omar’s rabid antisemitism is in fact causing stress and worry at home:

Rabbi Marcia Zimmerman of Temple Israel, a Reform Jewish congregation that is the oldest synagogue in this city, said many of members of her community have called her over the last month to say they were troubled by Omar’s comments.

“I don’t know the intention, but I know the impact. The words have been hurtful,” Zimmerman said in the tranquil lobby of the 141-year-old temple, surrounded by 12 floor-to-ceiling windows that symbolize the Torah’s 12 tribes of Israel. She added that the comments are especially problematic amid a recent spike in anti-Semitic incidents nationwide.

NBC’s cover-up is also contradicted by reporting found elsewhere.

SF Gate found that Omar’s hate is dividing longstanding ties between Minnesota’s Jewish and Somali communities. “Omar’s words sting at home, threatening to strain ties of Jewish and Somali Minnesotans,” the headline reads. The story continues:

In Minnesota’s Twin Cities, Jews and Somali immigrants have been partners for decades.

When Somali refugees arrived in Minnesota, starting in 1993, Jewish leaders saw echoes of their forebears who faced virulent anti-Semitism as newcomers to the state more than a century before. The communities developed strong ties, joining to fight hunger and illiteracy and raising money for one another in response to discrimination and threats of violence.

Then came the election to Congress last year of Ilhan Omar, a Somali immigrant who spent four years in a refugee camp as a child and arrived in Minnesota as a teenager.

An outspoken critic of Israel, Omar has courted controversy with provocative remarks that some say invoke anti-Semitic stereotypes. The pattern has alarmed many Jews, and as Omar faced yet another firestorm last week, community leaders on both sides voiced pain and confusion, fearing that the comments could damage an alliance they have spent years trying to nurture.

Omar’s hatred of Jews and most especially Israel have forced the Democrat Party to finally reveal its long-simmering antisemitism, which harkens back to the Party’s role in founding and protecting the Ku Klux Klan, especially in the Deep South.

Last week the Democrat Party, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, basically came out of the anti-Jewish closet by refusing to specifically condemn antisemitism after Omar, for the third time in just two months, spewed obscene stereotypes about Jews, Israel, and money.

All the Democrats could bring themselves to do was condemn “all hate.”

That one of America’s two major political parties cannot bring itself to specifically condemn antisemitism has a lot of Americans worried, not just those in Omar’s home district.

Jerry Templet, deputy special agent in charge of HSI’s San Francisco office, liked the post, it was reported.

HSI is ICE’s investigative branch.

Derewonko has also used LinkedIn to comment on posts expressing anti-immigrant views, BuzzFeed News reported Thursday.

ILHAN OMAR SEEKS TO CLARIFY CALL FOR 'NOT 1 DOLLAR FOR DHS'

“It is alarming that a public official charged with executing our immigration policies endorses such toxic views of refugees, Muslims, and an elected official,” Dalia Mogahed, the director of research at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, told BuzzFeed.

ICE representatives told BuzzFeed and ABC News that it was conducting a review to determine if the content violated departmental policies.

Omar's recent remarks criticizing Israel prompted critics to deem her an anti-Semite. Those comments also spurred a vote in the House this week condemning "anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism and other forms of bigotry."

Fox news just landed a knockout blow on Ilhan Omar and one wonders if she will survive this shocking scandal.

Omar ripped Obama, called him a mirage and someone who puts kids in cages and basically said Barack was a murdered for his drone strikes.

The backlash was swift so she tried to blame the media saying they took her words out of context. Thankfully a taped existed that proved Omar a liar.

From Fox News: Rep. Ilhan Omar’s attempt to shame a news outlet for misquoting her blistering attack on former President Barack Obama backfired after she released audio of the interview that only served to confirm her remarks.

The Minnesota Democrat, who’s faced controversy over comments perceived as anti-Semitic, got into hot water yet again after saying Obama’s “hope and change” message was a “mirage” and slammed the administration’s drone and border-detention policies.

She told Politico that the Obama administration was responsible for the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border, the “droning of countries around the world,” and that the 44th president “operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.”

Following the article’s publication, Omar went on offense on Twitter and accused the outlet’s reporter, Tim Alberta, of distorting her words and insisted that she is, in fact, a fan of Obama.

“Exhibit A of how reporters distort words. I’m an Obama fan! I was saying how Trump is different from Obama, and why we should focus on policy not politics. This is why I always tape my interviews,” she tweeted, attaching an audio recording of the interview.

But the move immediately backfired as the recording actually confirmed the comments she made to the news outlet. By Saturday afternoon, she had deleted the tweet.

Omar’s attempt at shaming a media outlet was called out by the reporter who said the rookie congresswoman tried to bash the media in an effort to avoid the comments she made.

“Exhibit A of how politicians use the media as a straw man to avoid owning what they said. Your tape…supports what I wrote 100%. So does my longer tape. It’s beyond dispute,” tweeted back the reporter at Omar. “Next time, a phone call from your office before the Twitter ambush would be appreciated.”

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested during a talk on Saturday that America is "garbage" and that former President Ronald Reagan presented a "racist" vision of the country that "pitted" white working class people against minorities in order "to screw over all working-class Americans."

Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks while speaking at the left-leaning South by Southwest Conference & Festivals in Austin, Texas.

"One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the '80s when he started talking about welfare queens," Ocaiso-Cortez said. "So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was ... this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were 'sucks' on our country."

"And it's this whole tragedy of the commons type of thinking where it's like because these one, this one specific group of people, that you are already kind of subconsciously primed to resent, you give them a different reason that's not explicit racism but still rooted in a racist caricature," Ocasio-Cortez continued. "It gives people a logical reason, a 'logical' reason to say, 'oh yeah, no, toss out the whole social safety net.'"

Asked moments later about the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and the $15 minimum wage, Ocasio-Cortez suggested that America is in decline and that the current state of America is "garbage."

"I think the thing that is really hard for people to sometimes see is that when we are on this path of a slow erosion and a slow, slow, slow, just like move away from what we've always been, we'll be a hundred miles, you'll, you know you won't even realize that you've drifted a hundred miles," Ocasio-Cortez said. "So, when someone's talking about our core, it's like oh this is radical, but this isn't radical, this is what we've always been."

"It's just that now we've strayed so far away from what has really made us powerful, and just, and good, and equitable, and productive, and so I think all of these things sound radical compared to where we are but where we are is not a good thing," Ocasio-Cortez continued. "And this idea of like 10% better from garbage, is, shouldn't be what we settle for, it's like this like it feels like moderate is not a stance it's just an attitude toward life of like hmmm."

Ocasio-Cortez's appearance at the event came after a tumultuous week for the congresswoman during which she repeatedly came to the defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after Omar made more anti-Semitic remarks last weekend.

While she was defending Omar, Ocasio-Cortez "retweeted a post from a supporter of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which the US has designated a terrorist organization," The New York Post reported.

The 29-year-old congresswoman also sent out a fundraising email — while she was defending Omar from accusations of anti-Semitism — that accused a pro-Israel group of coming after her and Omar.

A new report on the Democrat Party’s identity crisis signals Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MD) intends to continue being a lightning rod for controversy despite bipartisan blowback over her repeated trafficking in anti-Jewish tropes.

Politico Magazine’s chief political correspondent Tim Alberta interviewed Omar and Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) in recent weeks for an article detailing how the Minnesota Democrats’ “dueling visions” for the future indicate more turmoil to come.

To better understand these dueling visions for the Democratic Party, I sat down with both Omar and Phillips, spent several days in their communities and talked with some of their constituents. What I learned is that, despite the cautionary tale offered by years of vicious Republican infighting, Democrats are dangerously close to entering into their own fratricidal conflict. On matters of both style and substance, the fractures within this freshman class are indicative of the broader divisions in a party long overdue for an ideological reckoning.

And Omar isn’t shying away from it. “I am certainly not looking to be comfortable, and I don’t want everyone necessarily to feel comfortable around me,” she told me, a mischievous smile tugging at her lips. “I think really the most exciting things happen when people are extremely uncomfortable.”

Phillips, a friendly soul and consensus-builder by nature, is among those feeling a bit uncomfortable. Amid a discussion of Omar and Ocasio-Cortez, he complained, “Suddenly an entire party is being branded by the perspectives of two of its members who represent 1 percent of the caucus.”

Read Politico Magazine’s full report here.

The profile’s release comes after the House passed a resolution Thursday condemning antisemitism and other bigotry. Democrats are trying to push past a dispute that has overwhelmed their agenda and exposed fault lines that could shadow them through next year’s elections.

The 407-23 vote Thursday belied the emotional infighting over how to respond to Omar’s recent comments suggesting House supporters of Israel have dual allegiances. For days, Democrats wrestled with whether or how to punish the Minnesota Democratic lawmaker, arguing over whether Omar, one of two Muslim women in Congress, should be singled out, what other types of bias should be decried in the text and whether the party would tolerate dissenting views on Israel.

Republicans generally joined in the favorable vote, though nearly two dozen opposed the measure. Rep Lee Zeldin (R-NY), himself a Jew, called it a “sham.”

Generational as well as ideological, the argument was fueled in part by young, liberal lawmakers — and voters — who have become a face of the newly empowered Democratic majority in the House. These lawmakers are critical of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, rejecting the conservative leader’s approach to Palestinians and other issues.

The Old School Patriot

Howdy, y’all!

Yes it is once again time for our end of week comic relief known as “Stuck on Stupid Saturday.” Now, for those of us who are serious college basketball fans, this is the time of year we affectionately call “March Madness.” But, there is a clear and present madness playing out in Washington, DC. Yes, there can be no denial, this week’s Old School Patriot Stuck on Stupid recognition goes to the young freshmen Democrat Members of Congress I have dubbed, The Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse.” Uh huh, these four dubious young ladies, Alexandria “da Boss” Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley — in just two and a half months — have made quite the splash . . . but for the wrong reasons.

“Well, if you thought there would be a day where the far left wing of the House Democratic caucus would quiet down a bit, given their anti-Semitism issues, you’d be wrong. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) sent a fundraising email last night suggesting that AIPAC was coming after her and that the U.S.-Israeli relationship should be severed. No, I’m not kidding. This is insanity. AOC has been one of the few defenders [which includes Louis Farrakhan] of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who once again was accused of anti-Semitism for suggesting those who support Israel are exhibiting dual loyalty. The latter is a common anti-Semitic smear. Omar has also peddled the talking point about Jewish money and influence with her “all about the Benjamins” tweet.

In 2012, she [Omar] said that Israel had hypnotized the world. She’s run the gauntlet on this front. The recent dual loyalty fiasco has given her party leadership heartburn, exposing its fractured points with this resolution that condemns anti-Semitism, which has been watered down because…apparently, there are a lot of Democrats who don’t think this is an issue. They’re just angry that their side is being pilloried for peddling bigotry when they wanted the entire focus to be on Trump and his phantom prejudices. So, after days of anti-Semitic theater, AOC decided to blast this fundraising email (via NTK Network):

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is calling for an end to the United States’ special relationship with Israel while the House debated condemning all forms of hate speech, including anti-Semitism, on Thursday. The House of Representatives was debating condemning anti-Semitism on Thursday because of anti-Semitic comments made by Ocasio-Cortez’s friend and fellow member of Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), which were directed at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). “It’s official — AIPAC is coming after Alexandria, Ilhan, and Rashida,” the email said. “Rashida, Ilhan, and Alexandria have times dated to questions out foreign policy, and the influence of money in our political system. And now, lobbying groups across the board are working to punish them.”

The email then asked for people to contribute to help “keep up the fight against lobbying and special interests of all forms in Washington.” The email then appeared to call for an end to the United States’ special relationship with Israel. “In this administration and all others, there should be no special relationship or status,” the email said. “We should actively check anti-Semitism, anti-blackness, homophobia, racism, and all other forms of bigotry.”

As for this faux resolution that said everybody is bad, what a joke! But, these loud voices have, frankly, made Nancy Pelosi cower to their insidious demands. Yes, these four young Marxist/Islamist Princesses have completely thrown the party of the jackass on its arse.

Rep, Tlaib, who is facing FEC violation allegations, ranted that by the end of this month she will introduce articles of impeachment on President Trump. Well, that cat is outta the bag.

Not to be outdone, Rep. Pressley of Massachusetts, brought to the floor a bill to lower the voting age to 16. Uh huh, sweet 16. Now, I do not know about y’all, but at the tender age of 16, I was focused on my studies, football, track, and well, girls . . . not to mention my part-time job. I was not focused on politics, then again, we did not have social media nor teachers who were endeavoring to indoctrinate us.

These four are completely dominating the information cycle and the direction of what was once the Democrat Party, now it is the Socialist Party. Rep. Omar has now turned her sights on Barack Obama. Bold. However, the excuses for Omar are laughable, one stating that she comes from a different culture. Nancy Pelosi made comments alluding to Omar’s inability to understand the language, words, that she is using. Hey y’all, I call total bovine excrement. Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley all know what they are doing. And, it appears that Nancy Pelosi does not mind being on the cover of Rolling Stone with the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse. After all, we only have 12 years until the world ends, so we should stop having children.

Do not be deceived, there are those out there cheering these four on, and they are indeed a special kind of stupid. But what is truly perplexing is that these four are not the ones who enabled Nancy Pelosi to once again be the Speaker of the House. But, doggone, they are going to make sure that she is not Speaker after 2020. When was the last time you heard about any of those “moderate” Democrats who won in GOP congressional districts?

I must say, I do admire these four young women for their abject boldness. I truly admire them for that. The progressive socialist left will fight vehemently even in knowing what they are fighting for is dumb. Republicans can have all the right ideals, principles, policies, and perspectives . . . but they lack courage, as a whole.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has come to Washington, DC, and even when displaying utter ignorance at times — a true socialist quality — she is relentless. She gets support, but this is what the progressive socialist left has always wanted. Ilhan Omar is a Somali refugee, saved by the benevolence of these United States of America. Now she is turning her hatred upon this very country, and our ally.

They are telling us who they are, and that they do not play by the established rules. The GOP needs Four Horsemen, or Women, who will take the ideological field of battle and finally, fight back against the “Stuck on Stupid crowd.”

I am very sure that this will not be the last time these four receive this distinction. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, congratulations, you are the recipients of this week’s “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” award.

Last week, Thomas Friedman, the columnist for the New York Times penned a column about his obvious connection to Rep. Ilhan Omar, the newly elected firebrand from Minnesota’s Fifth District—a Democratic stronghold.

Friedman was raised there. He called the district a "crazy mix of Minnesota Jews (we called ourselves "the Frozen Chosen”)" that welcomed Somali refugees like 37-year-old "a half-century later" and elected her to Congress.

The Washington Post reported that Somali refugees started to arrive in the state back in 1993 and, despite their cultural differences, these groups came together to work for the common good. But recent comments by Omar has reportedly strained the relationship in the community.

MEGHAN McCAIN ACCUSES JEWISH ARTIST OF ANTI-SEMITISM AFTER MOCKING OMAR COMMENT

Omar Jamal, a Somali community activist, told the Post that he has been in touch with Jewish leaders after Omar's comments viewed by some as anti-Semitic. He supported her campaign but called her recent comments, "wrong, period," according to the report.

"This is up to Ilhan Omar," he said. "She has really spoken in a very dangerous way, and it’s going to be up to her to reach out to people and fix this."

The paper reported that one Jewish leader showed Omar a picture of a cousin who was killed in WWII and said that is why questioning dual loyalty is offensive.

Avi S. Olitzky, a senior rabbi in St. Louis Park, which is in the Fifth District, told The Star-Tribune that Omar’s comments have been a clear attack on the Jewish community.

Omar has apologized for her comments and has support from her Democratic colleagues. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised eyebrows on Friday when she said the congresswoman “doesn’t understand” that some of the words she uses are "fraught with meaning."

Omar – who filled the House seat that was held by Keith Ellison -- also took aim at former President Obama in an interview with Politico on Friday, saying his message of “hope” and “change” was a “mirage.”

"Recalling the ‘caging of kids’ at the U.S.-Mexico border and the ‘droning of countries around the world’ on Obama’s watch," Omar charged that Obama "operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor,” the piece read.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump… His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies," Omar reportedly said. "They just were more polished than he was."

Omar’s rhetoric has been embraced by some. Her proponents see her attack on AIPAC as bold. Amber Harris, a constituent, told the Star-Tribune that the attacks against Omar are unfair and “obscene.”

“She’s trying to change the Democratic Party to what I think it should be,” she said.

Friedman, for his part, pointed out in his column that he has a lot in common with Omar, but said his dislike of Aipac is based on that fact that it has “let itself become the slavish, unthinking tool of Netanyahu, who opposes a two-state solution, I believe Aipac works against Israel’s long-term interests.”

He wrote that evidence that he's seen suggests that Omar's dislike for Aipac is based on a dislike for Israel.

"Ilhan Omar represents, among other neighborhoods, a significant and liberal Jewish community — my hometown," he wrote. “I can tell you that a vast majority of Jews there would be proud if their congresswoman used her links to American Jews and Muslims to be a bridge builder for peace in the Middle East and America, not just another Aipac/Israel basher. She is young and very new to the national spotlight. Friends of mine back home tell me her humanistic instincts are impressive and authentic. I don’t know if it’s her or her advisers, but she’s gotten herself into a bad place — a huge missed leadership opportunity.

Rep. Ilhan Omar argues that American “democracy is built on debate,” tweeting, “I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee.” I’m sure no decent person disagrees with her comment. Also, every sane person understands this is merely a deflection from Omar’s many anti-Semitic comments.

No one asked her—or anyone else—to pledge allegiance to a foreign nation. It’s her belief that supporting the Jewish state, a longtime ideological and geopolitical ally of the United States, is an act of dual loyalty—either by Jews or by others who, as Omar might say, have been “hypnotized” to do “evil.” She is the one who accuses Jewish Americans, a group that has played a robust role in the nation’s civic life for a long time, of doing the bidding of a foreign power to the detriment of their own.

Just as no one is forcing Omar to take a position on Israel—much less pledge allegiance to it—no one is attacking her right to free speech. This isn’t Eritrea—a country Omar recently visited and was quite impressed by—where a dictatorship can arrest and torture citizens for taking unpopular positions. If Omar’s moral compass tells her to advocate for terrorists and theocrats, she’s free to do so. Americans are likewise free to point it out.

But Democrats’ draft measure condemning anti-Semitism is a useless and transparent attempt to distract from a serious problem of their own creation. The decree mentions Alfred Dreyfus, Leo Frank, Henry Ford, and “anti-Muslim bigotry”—because hey, even when Jews are being smeared, it’s about Islamophobia—but not once does it condemn Omar or the strain of hatred she is helping normalize on the left. The resolution, teeming with useless platitudes, is one that even Omar could probably support.

The resolution, teeming with useless platitudes, is one that even Omar could probably support.

It’s also worth remembering that it was only after a handful of Jewish Democrats, such as Eliot Engel, objected to Omar’s comments that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was forced to act—or rather, pretend to act.

Even now, a number of pundits on the left, including columnists for The Washington Post and The Atlantic, argue that Omar—as well as fellow anti-Semite Rep. Rashida Tlaib—operates within the parameters of acceptable debate. Omar could read portions of the Hamas Charter into the Congressional Record, and The New York Times would tell us her “latest remarks on Israel draw criticism.”

Another tactic taken up by Democrats is trolling for supposedly anti-Semitic comments by Republicans to deflect and dilute the attention on Omar. This week, Democrats found one such straw man when the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Jim Jordan, spelled liberal donor Tom Steyer’s name with a dollar sign in a tweet. Liberals across the media quickly took up the cause: “Gee whiz, what if Ilhan Omar had done this?!”

Well, if Omar had inserted a dollar sign into the name of a Jewish donor, considering her history, we’d have to assume she was clumsily trying to make another bigoted comment.

There’s absolutely nothing anti-Semitic about calling out Steyer—and other billionaires who spend millions every cycle helping political causes. Steyer, perhaps more than anyone, in fact, is known for advocating the impeachment of Donald Trump.

So when House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler issued document requests from 81 people and organizations in a massive trolling investigation for “obstruction,” Jordan reacted as people in both political parties tend to do, by accusing the other party of being bought by big donors and special interests.

Moreover, Steyer grew up with a nonpracticing Jewish dad and became involved in the Episcopal Church when he was 40. I certainly had no idea that “$teyer” had any Jewish background. His surname isn’t Jewish. He’s not a supporter of Jewish causes. If anything, he’s been a longtime supporter of anti-Israel candidates and organizations.

But Democrats, who hear dog whistles at every mention of “globalist,” can’t get their ire up when one of their own drops tropes that date back to at least “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”

Congress, of course, really has no business setting guidelines for acceptable political speech. Pelosi does, however, have the power to name committee appointees. And with this power, she decided to place a doltish hater of Jews, someone with radical positions and absolutely no relevant experience, on the House Foreign Affairs Committee to appease the growing anti-Israel contingent in her party.

She did this knowing about Omar’s history of anti-Semitic tweets, radicalism, and support of Hamas. Last week, Pelosi was mugging on the cover of the celebratory issue of Rolling Stone with Omar and her bestie, apologist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. These, claims the magazine, are “women shaping the future.” If so, that will be Pelosi’s legacy.

This should prove to be a timely distraction.

The actions of two U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are under review after one of the officials shared a post on social media that labeled Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., as a “Trojan horse,” suggesting she is a terrorist threat.

Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress in November, has been mired in controversy over anti-Semitic remarks and the Democrat-led House passed a watered-down resolution denouncing hate last week.

Leslie Derewonko, a Homeland Security Investigations senior agent, shared a post on LinkedIn that said Omar, a Somali refugee, was the product of a “refugee outbreak in Minnesota under Obama, according to ABC News. It also claimed that the newly elected congresswoman took a terrorism class — the post was tagged as “inaccurate” in the article.

“And this is what represents America?” Derewonko added in sharing the post.

The New York Post reported that “the political science department of North Dakota State University, where Omar earned her bachelor’s degree, offers a three-credit class focusing on the history, tactics and motivations of terrorist groups.”

A one-year estimate for 2017 from the Census Bureau shows there are 69,479 people in Minnesota with full or partial Somali ancestry.

As for Obama’s role, according to the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center, there were 54,514 Somali refugees that arrived in the U.S. during his two terms, with 6,320 relocating to Minnesota.

The LinkedIn post was “liked” by Jerry Templet, a top official at Homeland Security Investigations in San Francisco, according to Buzzfeed News.

A review of Derewonko’s LinkedIn page shows numerous political posts and suggests the agent is pro-Trump, pro-police and pro-America.

ABC News reported that the agent used the term “White America” multiple times in sharing posts, but did not offer any context.

According to the network, ICE doesn’t have a policy on what employees can or cannot share on social media, but the agency is looking into the offensive posts.

“Social media content posted by employees on their personal platforms should not be considered representative of agency policies or positions,” ICE spokesperson Jennifer Elzea said in a statement.

To distract from Omar’s anti-Semitism, Democrats passed a resolution on Thursday condemning all forms of hatred, to include Islamophobia, so this story serves a useful purpose as their media allies paint the actions of two agents as a reflection of not only the agency they work for, but of America as a whole.

But Media Research Center Vice President for Business and Culture Dan Gainor noted a fatal flaw in the thinking behind the LinkedIn post.

“Trojan horse included a hidden enemy. Omar isn’t hidden,” Gainor tweeted.

In her defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) points her finger at 26 of her Democratic colleagues, saying they were racists for supporting a proposal to notify immigration authorities if illegal aliens are caught trying to buy a gun.

Ocasio-Cortez argued that the discussion about bigotry within the Democratic caucus shouldn’t be aimed at Omar’s anti-Semitism, but rather the 26 Democrats who she says are racist for buying into the “false trope that Latino immigrants are more dangerous than U.S. born citizens.”

The proof of their racism was support for a Republican amendment to H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, that required federal authorities to notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement whenever an illegal immigrant tries to buy a firearm. More than 3,000 illegal immigrantshave their gun purchase attempts rejected each year.

Ocasio-Cortez says the 26 Democrat supporters of the amendment are the ones the party should be condemning.

“If we’re so concerned about implied tropes, why aren’t we concerned about this one?” she argued. “Where was the concern last week when 26 Dems voted for a GOP amendment to expand ICE powers rooted in the racist + false trope that Latino immigrants are more dangerous than U.S born citizens?”

“It’s based in a racist + non-evidence based trope that immigrants are dangerous,” she said. “Yet some Dems are willing to ‘compromise’ and spend BILLIONS on a trope because we’ve accepted some kinds of racism as realpolitik in America.” – READ MORE

Rep. Ilhan Omar accused Politico’s Tim Alberta of distorting her words in an article that went live this morning and she posted the audio of the interview to prove it:

Exhibit A of how reporters distort words.

I’m an Obama fan! I was saying how Trump is different from Obama, and why we should focus on policy not politics.

This is why I always tape my interviews. 😜 https://t.co/iZOAEslo1c https://t.co/8rjIq5LfxD

And the audio literally proves that Alberta did not misquote her:

Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour explained Friday how she and other left-wing organizers influenced the final language of the “anti-hate” resolution that passed the House Thursday night.

The resolution, initially launched as a rebuke exclusively against anti-Semitism following remarks made by Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, was later broadened to include all forms of bigotry. Sarsour in her video took credit for convincing House Democratic leadership for “expanding the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry.” (RELATED: Democratic Rebuke Against Anti-Semitism Becomes Resolution Against Everything Else)

The Women’s March co-founder attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last Tuesday for initially allowing the anti-Semitism resolution, saying in a Facebook post, “Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men. God forbid the men are upset – no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos.”

However, according to Sarsour Friday, she and her fellow organizers worked behind the scenes to change the original intent of the non-binding resolution by the end of the week. (RELATED: Democrat Anti-Hate Resolution Passes House)

Democrats argued with one another last Wednesday over the resolution’s language. Washington Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal, the progressive caucus’s leader, did not want Omar’s name in the resolution, while a number of Jewish members reportedly pushed to include it. Ultimately, the resolution omitted Omar’s name.

“Friends, our supporters, you know the Women’s March we’re going through some rough times and if you know anything about this past week, I’m going to give you some ideas of what we did this week. So, many of you know that our sister Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was under attack,” Sarsour said.

She continued, “And you know being able to mobilize progressive leaders across the country to sign on to a letter to organize a press conference in support of Ilhan Omar to call on the Democratic leadership to actually expand the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry because that’s the kind of movement we’re apart of.”

“The women’s march is a movement that unequivocally rejects all forms of racism and anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia and that’s what we called on the Democratic leadership to do — that in our lifetime we made history with a resolution that is going to be in the public record for life,” Sarsour added.

Source: Assyrian Warns Americans to Visit Ilhan Omar District: You Won’t Think It’s America

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition (MEWC) director Nahren Anweya on Wednesday warned Americans who visit Minnesota’s 5th district, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district, the 2016 “terrorist recruitment capital of the country.”

“You won’t even think you’re in America,” she said of the district that elected Ilhan Omar.

MEWC Director of Speical Projects Anweya was speaking at an MEWC press conference calling for Rep. Omar to resign. She said she has cousins and family members “called whores for showing” part of the back of the arm in Iraq, “a country where one day they were wearing mini skirts.”

“It is truly because of people like [Rep.] Ilhan [Omar], when the government is infiltrated and it starts this way because it happened in Iraq and it happened against us,” she went on. “Iraq used to be a country where Jews lived freely, where Assyrian Christians lived freely, where even Armenians were there, and even moderate Muslims lived until sharia law took place and everyone was affected.”

“Americans truly need to understand that this will affect you one day if you don’t make a change right now,” she said of sharia, adding she knows the early signs of genocide.

Anweya asked how the House of Representatives passed 393-0, “Resolution 75 recognizing the ongoing genocide of Christians and other religious minorities under ISIS” in March 2016 but now support representatives like Ilhan Omar. She cited Omar’s request to a judge for a lighter sentence for a terrorist supporter.

“We are here because of God, to give you a warning as Americans,” said Anweya. “We are here to tell you this is coming here, and it is here and it will affect you. It will affect everyone.”

“You will see your daughters get beheaded,” she went on. Anweya said she interviewed hundreds of families of all religions affected in the genocide in Iraq who “watched family members get executed right in front of them and that’s when reality hit them and they knew it was too late and that sharia law had taken full control of that country.”

She said she would not stop until Rep. Omar resigns in light of her anti-Semitism, possible ties to terrorism, and sympathy for radicals. She pointed to her experience being born and raised in the Middle East.

Anweya went further to decry members of Congress supporting Omar while “knowing what is happening in Minnesota’s 5th district,” Ilhan Omar’s district.

“If you don’t know, I highly advise you to take a trip to Minnesota’s 5th district and you will see what’s happening,” Anweya suggested. “You won’t even think you’re in America.”

In West Virginia earlier last week, they were more to the point:

And Fox Faux News strongly condemned one of its commentators for asking if Omar’s “adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

The infiltration of sharia supremacists is well underway in America.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says that Americans are suppressing the votes of 12 to 30 million illegal aliens. Miss Nancy, do you realize what illegal means? No, it’s not a sick bird. It means breaking the law. Should we ever decide to allow illegals to vote or grant amnesty and citizenship to the illegals, the Democrats would absolutely dominate the elections. That is how we got Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. Both districts have a huge number of Muslim refugees. The Democrats are getting bolder, and the only way to slow them down is for a red wave to hit in 2020 and reduce Democrats back to the minority.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the United States must not suppress the vote of newly arrived legal immigrants — including those foreign nationals who arrive en masse at the U.S.-Mexico border.

During a press conference in Austin, Texas this week, Pelosi admitted that the goal for the country’s mass illegal and legal immigration system is to ensure the more than 1.5 million new arrivals who come to the U.S. every year are on the voter rolls.

Pelosi added that it is immigrants, not American citizens, who make the nation “more American.”

When we talk about newcomers, we have to recognize the constant reinvigoration of America that they are, that we all have been – our families. And that, unless you’re blessed to be Native American – which is a blessing in itself that we respect – but that constant reinvigoration of hope, determination, optimism, courage, to make the future better for the next generation, those are American traits. [Emphasis added]

And these newcomers make America more American. And we want them, when they come here, to be fully part of our system. And that means not suppressing the vote of our newcomers to America. [Emphasis added]

The Democratic Party in Congress brought controversy down upon itself once again after it utterly failed to denounce anti-Semitism following repeated offensive remarks from one of its new members.

What had initially been intended as a narrow condemnation of anti-Semitism and a specific rebuke of Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar for her litany of anti-Semitic comments ended up being a watered down and meaningless denouncement of “hate” and bigotry in general, and that has more than a few aggrieved Jews looking on in absolute disdain.

In fact, The Daily Wire reported that the manner in which House Democrats botched the effort to condemn anti-Semitism only served as fuel on the fire of a growing movement known as “Jexodus,” or the exodus of Jewish millennials from the Democratic Party.

Coming on the heels of the broader #WalkAway movement of people leaving the Democratic Party, which spurred more specific sub-movements such as “Blexit” and “Lexit” — black exit and Latino exit, respectively — is this new movement devoted to Jews who no longer feel welcomed in the party that a plurality has long called a political home.

The website of the upstart Jexodus movement states, “We are proud Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics. We reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left.”

TRENDING: Pompeo Reminds China It’s in Trump’s World Now with Use of Force Announcement

“Progressives, Democrats, and far too many old-school Jewish organizations take our support for granted. After all, we’re Jewish, and Jews vote for Democrats. Until today,” the website added.

The description of the group proceeded to point out how young Jews had seen anti-Semitism first hand on college and university campuses, particularly via the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement that targets the nation of Israel.

The group boldly declared, “We’re done standing with supposed Jewish leaders and allegedly supportive Democrats who rationalize, mainstream, and promote our enemies. We’d rather spend forty years wandering in the desert than belong to a party that welcomes Jew-haters.”

The Daily Wire noted the significance of the movement, should it catch on and prove successful, in that the Democratic Party has seemingly taken the Jewish vote for granted for decades, as the party has received the plurality of Jewish votes in every single presidential election since the nation of Israel was founded in 1948.

That’s despite the fact that the Republican Party has long held substantially more pro-Jew and pro-Israel policy positions than their Democratic counterparts.

That said, the Democratic Party has admittedly been more polished and successful in pressing a victimized minority narrative around Jews that has served them well to draw Jewish voters into the fold.

The Jexodus movement received a “soft launch” at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference, but organizers told The Daily Wire that the movement would time the official launch to coincide with the Jewish holiday of Passover, symbolizing the view that young Jews are fleeing the bondage imposed on them by the Democratic Party’s increasingly leftist agenda.

The movement was first dreamed up by Jewish Republican activist Jeff Ballabon, with help from another activist named Bruce Abramson. Ballabon has been credited with founding the now-annual Jewish Shabbat at CPAC, as well as helping formulate a more pro-Israel platform for the Republican Party in 2016.

The public face of the movement and national spokesperson is a Jewish woman named Elizabeth Pipko, who is affiliated with President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign. She told The Daily Wire that her hope is to “get Jews to stand up for themselves and what their religion stands for.”

She further described how the movement would help push back against overt liberal media bias, such as the incessant portrayal of President Trump as an alleged anti-Semite while ignoring actual instances of anti-Semitism from Democrats and the left, such as the repeated bigoted remarks of Rep. Omar.

It remains to be seen how successful this Jexodus movement will prove to be. But considering the dismal manner in which Democrats have handled their own growing anti-Semitism problems and increasing animosity toward Israel, it would seem that the ground is prepared for a mass exodus of Jews from the party that has never been witnessed before.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is making another sad excuse for Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic verbiage.

Pelosi’s support of Omar is almost like the Democratic Party openly endorsing anti-Semitism.

Exclusive Trump 2020 Coin – YOURS FREE

Instead of condemning Omar’s hateful words towards Israel and the Jewish culture, the Democrats keep defending her and coming up with different excuses for her bad behavior in congress.

Pelosi tried to say that Omar “has a different experience in the use of words” — but that’s nonsense.

Omar has lived in America long enough, since 1995, to know exactly what she’s saying is hurtful to many Americans and those in Israel.

If President Trump said the same things Omar said, the Democrats wouldn’t let him sleep a single night peacefully until he apologized.

However, when a Democrat says something terrible, the Democrats stand up for them regardless of how wrong it is.

Pelosi is a perfect example of a Democrat defending bad behavior practiced by another Democrat.

An opinion piece in the NY Post stated that Democrats dislike people who are hateful, unless that person is part of their party.

“Democrats hate hate — but when it comes to a hater in their own midst, they’ll make excuses or even elevate the bigot.

Because Democratic leaders publicly bent over backward to excuse Omar’s continued use of classic anti-Jewish tropes. Pelosi claimed she “doesn’t believe” that Omar’s comments were “intended in any anti-Semitic way,” and that the resolution is “not about her.” No. 2 House Democrat Steny Hoyer also insisted Omar isn’t anti-Semitic.”

How long will it take for Democrats to wake up and realize that some of the members in their party are hurtful to their cause then they divide the country with anti-Semitic remarks?

Will Democrats ever condemn Omar’s statements or remove her from government?

Many Americans hope so.

Extremism in the Somali community of Minneapolis has long been a concern of American counterterrorism officials, as both the Islamic State and al-Qaeda’s ally al-Shabaab have been alarmingly successful at recruiting from the area. The district represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has seen more men and boys attempt to join foreign terrorist organizations over the last 12 years than any other district in the United States.

A Fox News report in February noted federal officials are still “highly concerned” about Minneapolis even though ISIS lost its “caliphate” in Syria and Iraq:

FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.

In the case of the Somalis, it’s no longer just the men. Early last year, a female was apprehended by authorities on charges of supporting providing material support to Al Qaeda and arson.

[…] “We are very conscious that there may still be fertile ground for that, and that is could re-start at any time,” one federal official told Fox News. “Based on historical experience, we had (an uptick) in 2007 and 2008 going for al-Shabab, then a lull. Then, as ISIS came back, we saw a whole bunch of people no longer headed for Somalia. They were headed for Iraq and Syria. That really caught us off-guard, we didn’t see that coming. It didn’t make sense to us. We understood why kids were going back to Somalia, but going to Syria was another we issue.”

The Fox report noted ISIS aggressively recruits online, while al-Shabaab works the insular Somali community with “word of mouth” and “face-to-face radicalization.” A major element of the al-Shabaab recruiting pitch involves blaming Somalia’s woes on foreign intervention and promising the terrorist group will create an Islamist paradise governed by strict sharia law.

National security analysts told Fox News part of the problem is the difficulty Somalian immigrants have with assimilating to American culture, making it easier for terrorist recruiters to play on their sense of alienation and exploit their affinity for Somali culture and Islam. The insular nature of the Somali community also makes it difficult for law enforcement to collect information or establish agents. A police crackdown on street gangs in Minneapolis further alienated Somali youth and drove them into extremist mosques.

The analysts who spoke to Fox were highly critical of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) because she seeks leniency for terrorist recruits and exacerbates the Somali community’s sense of paranoia and alienation:

As for Omar, she spoke up for a group of six Somalis arrested in 2015 for trying to cross into Mexico, as part of a plan to join ISIS in Syria. As the case went to trial the following year, the then-state representative wrote a letter to the trial judge requesting “compassion” – and lighter sentencing on behalf of one of the Minnesota men, who was facing 30 years jail time.

“Such punitive measures not only lack efficacy, they inevitably create an environment in which extremism can flourish, aligning with the presupposition of terrorist recruitment,” Omar wrote. “The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion. We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to affect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation.”

Her position has been slammed by those who say she hasn’t taken a tough enough stand.

“Rep. Omar is asking for our justice system to support known terrorists, this sets an extremely poor precedence and should not be allowed,” contended Rudolph Atallah, chief executive officer of White Mountain Research, and former Africa Counterterrorism in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. “She clearly has a bias and an agenda and does not understand what the United States truly stands for.”

This analysis is hardly limited to Fox News. NPR published an entire series in 2009 about the “Somali-Minneapolis Terrorist Axis” that hit the same basic points. Al-Shabaab has operatives who specialize at recruiting and training young men from Minneapolis. The FBI has worried for a decade that some of those recruits will use their dangerous skills in the United States.

The Washington Post in July wrote of the dangerous paradox that efforts to combat radicalization in the Minneapolis Somali community tend to exacerbate the very “fear and paranoia” that give terrorist recruiters so much to work with.

The Obama administration’s deliberately vague “Countering Violent Extremism” project made things worse by not telling Somali youths exactly what they were supposed to be avoiding, although the Post also cited concerns that making the message more specific – such as renaming the initiative to “Countering Islamic Extremism” – would just alienate the community in a different way.

Local activists complain money spent on counter-extremism programs would be better invested in community improvements, with an eye toward turning young people away from extremism by getting them involved in sports or giving them better sources of information about traditional Somali culture than terrorist recruiters. Unfortunately, the community has a history of losing funds for high-minded projects to fraud, and some of that money might be ending up in the hands of al-Shabaab and other extremist groups.

Recommendations for solving the problem vary widely, but almost everyone familiar with the Somali community in Minneapolis agrees insularity and alienation are its biggest problems. It is therefore profoundly unhelpful to watch the national Democrat Party excuse Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitism by arguing she represents an inscrutable alien culture that Americans must learn to accommodate.

Far-Left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) appeared to suggest in an interview with Politico Magazine that former President Barack Obama was a murderer because he used drone strikes to kill terrorists.

The Politico article was about her and Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN), whose district is next to Omar's in Minnesota.

"The two are framed as symbolizing the colliding forces in the new Democratic House majority, with Omar representing the far-left flank and Phillips the more center-left sensibilities that helped recapture suburban districts from Republicans in 2018," The Washington Free Beacon's David Rutz noted, adding that Omar "wasn't shy about telling Politico her objections to Obama-era policies, like detention centers for illegal immigrant children and the 'droning of countries around the world.'"

Politico Magazine reports:

As she saw it, the party ostensibly committed to progressive values had become complicit in perpetuating the status quo. Omar says the "hope and change" offered by Barack Obama was a mirage. Recalling the "caging of kids" at the U.S.-Mexico border and the "droning of countries around the world" on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.

In the very next paragraph, immediately after trashing Obama, Omar stated: "We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was. And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile."

For the record, we disagreed with @BarackObama on almost every issue, but @IlhanMN’s comments calling a former President a murderer with a pretty face and a smile is disgusting and should be condemned by all sides. pic.twitter.com/S99mA4CpkK

Omar's statements in Politico's report seem to contradict multiple statements that she has made about Obama on social media:

Omar's statements are just the latest in a long line of comments that have caused a massive headache for the Democratic Party.

Over the last week, Omar's anti-Semitism has captured national headlines and have deepened the fracture in the party, revealing which Democrats still support Israel and which ones do not.

"The comments came after the passage Thursday of a broad anti-bigotry resolution prompted by Omar's prior comments about Israel," Fox News reported. "The resolution and the drama surrounding its passage exposed chasms in the Democratic caucus regarding Israel and marked a coup of sorts for a tight-knit band of House freshmen who — in a matter of hours — were able to shift the spotlight away from Omar’s allegedly anti-Semitic remarks and refocus on issues like Islamophobia and pro-Israel lobby AIPAC."

In a Thursday speech on the House floor, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) slammed the Democratic Party for it's inability to condemn anti-Semitism.

"If that member was a Republican, that member's name would be in this resolution, and this resolution would be all about condemning anti-Semitism — and it would be done so forcefully," Zeldin said. "That member in January had to apologize for talking about a 'hypnosis' of Israel that they have over the entire world. That member had to apologize in February by saying if you support Israel, it must be because you're bought off by Jews. That member called it an unequivocal apology, even though she filled it with equivocation. And now we're back again this time by saying that if you support the U.S.-Israel relationship that you must have pledged allegiance to a foreign government. Except this time that member is refusing to apologize."

This comes the day after Democrats failed to condemn her for her anti-Semitic attacks in the past few weeks.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” the freshman firebrand told Politico Magazine.

“His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar said.

“And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

The explosive comments about a man lionized by Democrats were only the latest in a series of incendiary statements that have put the national spotlight on Omar, a Somali-American Muslim who spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya after her family fled the violence in their homeland.

The explosive comments about a man lionized by Democrats were only the latest in a series of incendiary statements that have put the national spotlight on Omar, a Somali-American Muslim who spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya after her family fled the violence in their homeland.

In February, her second month in office, Omar responded to a tweet about House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy’s threats to punish her and another congresswoman for criticizing Israel.

“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” she tweeted, a line from a Puff Daddy song about $100 bills.

Critics said Omar was perpetuating a hateful trope about Jewish Americans and money.

She recently got into another hot mess after another tweet was slammed by some as anti-Semitic.

The ensuing firestorm rattled the Democratic House majority and spurred days of recriminations and tense negotiations that led to the compromise package condemning bigotry that sailed through the House on Thursday, with only 23 Republicans voting against it.

The party’s leftist wing, led by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, said Omar was being singled out when others at the highest levels of government had said things that were worse and escaped censure.

More moderate Dems, including Jewish lawmakers such as New York’s Eliot Engle, wanted the resolution to focus only on anti-Semitism as a direct response to Omar’s comment, which questioned the loyalty of politicians who accept donations from pro-Israel PACs and organizations.

Ultimately, after days of chaos and acrimony, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was able to unite her caucus — and box in a big majority of Republicans — to back the compromise.

And Omar — along with Rashida Tlaib of Michigan the first Muslim women in Congress — said she’s willing to keep speaking out and be a Republican punching bag if it helps advance her agenda, a prospect that likely makes many of her fellow Democrats cringe.

The House passed a resolution condemning “all forms of hate” late Thursday, but the vote comes during a contentious time for democrats who failed to stand up to Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Omar was criticized for multiple antisemitic statements on twitter and found herself facing backlash. But with the support of progressives in her party and like-minded organizations, like CAIR, she appeared to gain enough strength to take on Democratic leadership and flipped from being accused antisemitic to victim among supporters.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-MI, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, D-NY, have jumped to Omar’s defense. Even more concerning was House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC), who said Omar’s experience as a refugee is more powerful than that of holocaust survivors.

Carter has extensive knowledge of the Middle East from her travels to her childhood, which she spent the majority of living in Saudi Arabia.

“We cannot be afraid, we cannot cower down, and we have to talk for Muslim women who do not support this type of radicalism.” said Carter.

Muslim Supremacy

Linda Sarsour has hijacked the message. Sarsour calls herself a feminist, when in reality, she is taking away the voices of so many American Muslim women. Nomani pointed to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) as another key player in the supremacy game.

Carter told Ingraham that this is a very dangerous time.

Nomani spoke of her earlier encounter with Sarsour to Ingraham. Nomani said Sarsour and her team, including CAIR representatives, acted like they owned Congress. Further, Sarsour instructed her team to block the entrance to keep Nomani from entering Tlaib’s office.

“Lobbyists from the Muslim organizations became the gatekeepers in Congress” said Nomani.

After repeatedly condemning the nation of Israel and those who support it in a series of anti-Semitic comments, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has picked up an endorsement from David Duke.

“David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and an open racist and antisemite, is publicly defending Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in the wake of the freshman Democrat’s series of antisemitic statements that have rankled the Democrat Party nationally,” Breitbart reports.

In one tweet, Duke calls Omar “the most important member of the U.S. Congress.”

“Simply stated, she is important because the dared expose the gorilla in Congress that nobody dares speak,” Duke said in another tweet.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

Duke has been a lightning rod in American politics for years, and in recent years the media and left have gone after Republicans–particularly President Trump–for having been praised by him. During the 2016 presidential campaign, the media demanded repeatedly that Trump disavow Duke–which he did. But now Duke has endorsed Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI)–a Hawaiian Democrat–in the 2020 presidential election.

This is not the first time Duke has taken up Omar’s cause either. Back in early February, when she first came under the national spotlight for anti-Semitism at the beginning of the new Congress, Duke backed her up publicly as well.

Duke’s decision to back Omar now comes in the wake of several Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and presidential candidates like Sens Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), as well as many other Democrats, refusing to demand that Omar apologize and attempting to explain away her comments as somehow not deliberately anti-Semitic.

As the Hill reports, Gabbard vehemently denounced the endorsement.

“I have strongly denounced David Duke’s hateful views and his so-called ‘support’ multiple times in the past, and reject his support,” Gabbard said.

An op-ed from the Washington Examiner adds:

Duke issued a series of tweets today saying that freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar’s string of obviously anti-Semitic statements and actions make her “the most important member of the U.S. Congress.” Duke, whose 50-year history as a Nazi sympathizer and former KKK leader is well-documented, meant it as high praise.

In January, Omar said the nation of Israel has hypnosis over the entire world. In February, the Minnesota Democrat said people who support Israel were bought off by Jews. And, most recently in March, she said if someone supports the American-Israeli relationship then they must have pledged allegiance to a foreign government.

According to the op-ed, mainstream media outlets will undoubtedly treat Duke’s endorsement of a Democrat differently than the way they pounced on Duke’s campaign endorsement of Trump. Trump immediately and repeatedly denounced the endorsement.

Check it out:

First, Omar herself should be repeatedly questioned about whether she accepts Duke’s endorsement and about why her views and his dovetail so nicely. Second, every Democrat should be asked, in light of Duke’s embrace of Omar, why the Democratic caucus shouldn’t be seen as Duke-friendly because it refused to adopt a resolution specifically denouncing Omar’s anti-Semitism.

This bears repeating: If the Duke-Omar embrace isn’t turned into a universal question for all Democratic House members, the media will have failed as an institution to act in a professional, even-handed manner.

If the media will not hold Democrats to the same standard, then it should forever ignore all of Duke’s efforts to thrust himself into the news merely by saying or tweeting something.

Democrats are seeking a 2020 primary challenger in Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district to unseat the Congresswoman after she repeatedly made anti-Semitic comments, according to Breitbart.

“Several Democrats” described Omar’s anti-Semitic comments as “the elephant in the room” and a distraction from the Democrats’ agenda for Congress and are seeking to remove her from office in 2020.

Breitbart reports:

While, as Breitbart News is revealing here, there is an ongoing effort to seek out a primary challenger to Omar, it remains to be seen if the effort will be successful. Those involved in doing the searching for a candidate–top Democrats with national profiles and connections to senior leaders throughout the party–would only speak on condition of anonymity for this piece, and expressed their ongoing agony as this week in particular has dragged out to the point where Democrats finally passed a resolution out of the House late Thursday condemning hatred and bigotry.

One Democrat told Breitbart, “…To say that Democratic leadership doesn’t know what to do would be an understatement. They are in a state of total paralysis. Ilhan rode into Congress with Ocasio-Cortez, and is, unfortunately, becoming more and more popular along with her. Omar represents a faction of the party that is, frankly, anti-intellectual. Their flirtation with religious extremism exemplifies that. A primary challenge wouldn’t just be healthy, it’s absolutely necessary. The longer Ilhan Omar remains in office, the longer we lose credibility in calling out extremism in all forms. It is a total quagmire.”

Antisemitic activist Linda Sarsour on Wednesday ordered people associated with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to physically block former Wall Street Journal journalist and Muslim Reform Movement leader Asra Nomani from entering Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) office.

Nomani, a longtime CAIR critic, posted video of the encounter.

Sarsour is overheard in Arabic telling her associates to block Nomani’s entry. “Don’t let her [Nomani] be one of the first ones in. Do you all hear me? Come stand here. Don’t let her be one of the first ones in.”

The video shows Sarsour with CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad, Ahmed Bedier — former director of CAIR’s Tampa chapter — and CAIR’s Government Affairs Director, Robert McCaw.

The group was on Capitol Hill to lobby against a resolution condemning antisemitic statements from Tlaib’s colleague, Ilhan Omar, even though the resolution did not name Omar.

At its creation, CAIR was part of a Hamas-support network called the Palestine Committee. Awad was featured on a list of Palestine Committee officials whose mission, the Fifth US Circuit Court of Appeals found, was to “support Hamas from abroad.”

Sarsour has espoused antisemitic smears worse than Omar’s, and advocates for a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“I am an unapologetic pro-BDS, one-state solution supporting resistance supporter here in the US” Sarsour told an audience at the Islamic Society of North America’s (ISNA) annual convention in September, the Investigative Project on Terrorism exclusively reported.

These are the types of characters who meet privately with Rashida Tlaib to defend Ilhan Omar.

Criticism and condemnation rained down last month on Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, after she tweeted, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby” to explain why she and Tlaib draw attention for their “criticisms of Israel.”

And who is the source of this cash? “AIPAC!” Omar added, referring to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Facing serious backlash from many in her party, Omar issued a caveated apology. Omar has since doubled down on purveying antisemitic tropes, by depicting support for Israel as a form of dual allegiance.

From the outset, Omar and Tlaib’s radical Islamist backers immediately came to their defense. Wednesday’s footage shows that they will not back down.

As reported by Breitbart

Some Democrats have had enough of the repeated antisemitism coming from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and intend to primary her out of office, several sources familiar with an effort to recruit a candidate to run against her tell Breitbart News.

Several Democrats, speaking on condition of anonymity, described Omar’s repeated antisemitic episodes as “the elephant in the room” distracting from what Democrats are trying to do in their first few months of a new House majority heading into the all-important 2020 presidential election. As such, these Democrats say, they are seeking out a primary challenger in Minnesota’s fifth congressional district to remove her from office in the 2020 congressional elections.

While, as Breitbart News is revealing here, there is an ongoing effort to seek out a primary challenger to Omar, it remains to be seen if the effort will be successful. Those involved in doing the searching for a candidate–top Democrats with national profiles and connections to senior leaders throughout the party–would only speak on condition of anonymity for this piece, and expressed their ongoing agony as this week in particular has dragged out to the point where Democrats finally passed a resolution out of the House late Thursday condemning hatred and bigotry.

But they have been criticized by many Republicans, and even some Democrat members of Congress, for not going far enough and being too appeasing to this rising antisemitic sentiment inside the fringes of the Democrat Party as represented by Omar’s views.

“Republicans will never win this district,” one Democrat source familiar with the effort said, pointing to the fact that the district Omar represents is rated by the Cook Political Report’s Partisan Voting Index as a D+26 district–meaning it is heavily gerrymandered to favor Democrats by 26 percent over Republicans.

“Many Democrats simply are simply too afraid to say anything because Islamophobia has become the knee jerk reaction to anyone who dares criticize her,” a second Democrat told Breitbart News. “To be labeled a racist or Islamophobe for simply calling out what we all know to be abhorrent, is not just a slippery slope, it’s deeply troubling. And it’s forcing allies out of the party. To say that Democratic leadership doesn’t know what to do would be an understatement. They are in a state of total paralysis. Ilhan rode into Congress with Ocasio-Cortez, and is, unfortunately, becoming more and more popular along with her. Omar represents a faction of the party that is, frankly, anti-intellectual. Their flirtation with religious extremism exemplifies that. A primary challenge wouldn’t just be healthy, it’s absolutely necessary. The longer Ilhan Omar remains in office, the longer we lose credibility in calling out extremism in all forms. It is a total quagmire.”

Ilhan Omar's MN-5 covers all of Minneapolis plus St. Louis Park and part of Eden Prairie. Surely, there is money and power and frustration among Dems there to primary her.

Because of her district’s hard left political makeup, Democrats’ only hope of removing her from office is to run someone against her in the primary and beat her there. Republicans would stand next to zero chance of winning this seat because of the demographic makeup of the district.

Minnesota’s new attorney general, Keith Ellison, used to represent the district. Given that he is the former vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), there are deep national Democrat ties into the urban Minneapolis district. Omar is the first Somali-American to ever serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, and is the first woman of color to represent any Minnesota district in Congress. Ellison, first elected in 2006, represented the district through 2018–when he stepped aside to run for the attorney general post in Minnesota, clearing the way for Omar’s rise.

Ellison, who like Omar is a Muslim, had his own problems with connections to extremism, having written under a pseudonym in law school in a student newspaper defending Louis Farrakhan and supporting the anti-Israel Boycott Divest Sanction (BDS) movement. Ellison later denounced Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and attempted to distance himself from the antisemitic leader of the Nation of Islam. And while Ellison challenged the Democratic Party’s establishment, dragging the party further left on many issues and pushing the DNC his way with a bitter race against current chair, which landed Ellison in the vice chairman slot for a time, he still got along well with many national Democrats. Ellison also avoided the matter becoming a major national scandal as has played out for Democrats over the past week plus.

I have a new hobby. It’s collecting the excuses Democrats make for Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota Democratic congresswoman who has an unhealthy fixation on Jewish influence, Jewish money, and Jewish loyalty. Omar has said that Israel “hypnotized the world,” ascribing to Jews the power of mind control in the service of manipulating public opinion. She’s said the only reason Congress supports Israel is Jewish campaign donations. Most recently, using the classic anti-Semitic trope of dual loyalty, she criticized supporters of Israel for having “allegiance to a foreign power.” A real treasure, Omar is. A typical freshman congresswoman sees her mission as — forgive the expression — bringing home the bacon for her district. Not Ilhan. Her project is to mainstream anti-Semitic rhetoric within the Democratic party. Once upon a time, you’d have to visit the invaluable website of the Middle East Media Research Institute to hear such tripe. Now you just need to flip on C-SPAN.

And Democrats are powerless to stop it. They’re tripping over themselves, making rationalizations, dodging reality, and trying to clean up this anti-Semitic mess. Omar is new to this, they say. She never intended to come across as anti-Semitic. She can’t help it. “She comes from a different culture.” She didn’t know what she was saying — she’s a moron! She’s just trying to “start a conversation” about the policies of Israel’s government. And why are you singling her out, anyway. “She is living through a lot of pain.” She’s black, she’s a woman, and she’s Muslim. You can’t condemn her without also condemning white men of privilege. What are you, racist? Islamophobic? Shame on you for picking on this poor lady, who just happens to say that American Jews serve a foreign power by buying off politicians and using the Force to blinker people’s minds.

Before such “arguments” — they are really assertions of victimhood to intimidate critics — Nancy Pelosi shudders. She’s supposed to be this Iron Lady, returned to power after exile, ruling her caucus with a vise-like grip. But her hands are covered in Palmolive. She’s spent the first weeks of Congress doing little more than responding to the various insanities of Omar and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. Pelosi will condemn Omar one minute, before appearing with her on the cover of Rolling Stone the next. She’s lost a step. She can’t hold her caucus together when Republicans call for motions to recommit on the House floor. The policies her candidates ran on in swing districts vanished under the solar-powered glare of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. We’re not talking about covering preexisting conditions, we’re pledging to rid the world once and for all of the scourges of air travel and cow flatulence. Pelosi’s trigger-happy committee chairmen, firing their subpoena cannons into the air at random, look like goofballs desperate to impeach President Trump.

Whatever control Pelosi had over her majority vanished the second she delayed the resolution condemning Omar. It then became undeniable that AOC & co. is in charge. Identity politics has rendered the Democrats incapable of criticizing anti-Semitism so long as it dons the wardrobe of intersectionality. It’s nothing short of incredible that three women from three different cities — New York, Detroit, and Minneapolis — can run roughshod over 233 other House Democrats with a little help from social media, woke 24-year-olds in the digital press, and the Congressional Black Caucus. If you’re Ocasio-Cortez right now, you must love life from the comfort of the test kitchen in your luxury D.C. apartment building. What’s next for this trio — two of whom are members of the Democratic Socialists of America, two of whom support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement that seeks Israel’s destruction, and all three of whom combine radical anti-American politics with radical self-regard — finding a candidate to primary pro-Israel Democrat Eliot Engel, chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee, on which Omar sits? Challenging Chuck Schumer in the Democratic primary when he’s up for reelection in 2022?

The most pressing order of business has got to be the 2020 presidential election. Omar, AOC, and Tlaib don’t strike me as Cory Booker supporters. Amy Klobuchar might be too much of a taskmaster for them. Most likely the radicals will line up behind the current frontrunner, Bernie Sanders, who has already surrounded himself with anti-Israel activists. Sanders has said criticism of Omar is just a means to “stifle debate” over Israel’s government. He’s too smart to believe that. As the most successful Jewish presidential candidate in history, he has a responsibility to draw lines. After all, he’s no stranger to the dual-loyalty charge — though of course in his case the other country was the Soviet Union.

Bernie Sanders has no interest in stopping Omar. He recognizes that she represents the impending transformation of the Democratic party into something more closely resembling the British Labour party. Labourites elected avowed socialist Jeremy Corbyn party leader in September 2015. The years since have been spent in one anti-Semitism scandal after another. Sanders wants desperately to be the American Corbyn. If anti-Semitism is the price of a socialist America, so be it. Remember what Stalin said about the omelette. I’m sure Bernie does. If Democrats can’t rebuke Omar swiftly and definitively, if they have trouble competing with Ocasio-Cortez’s Instagram cooking show, how will they be able to stop Sanders from carrying his devoted bloc of supporters to plurality victories in the early primaries, and using the divided field to gain momentum just as Trump did?

So far this year the Democrats have floundered in a pit of racism, sexual assault, and anti-Semitism. They’ve embraced policies akin to infanticide, and announced plans to expropriate wealth, pay reparations for slavery, eliminate private health insurance within two years, and rebuild or retrofit every building in the United States before the world ends from climate change twelve years from now. Throughout it all, they’ve received a pass from the know-nothing media. Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Sanders have all made the claim that Omar has done nothing but criticize the policies of Bibi Netanyahu. That’s a bald-faced lie, a falsehood not one of the hundreds upon hundreds of reporters covering the Democratic field has scrutinized. These are the very people who have spent the past three years sermonizing on the importance of truth in politics, and they are doing Bernie’s work for him. Elaine Kamarck of the Brookings Institution insists that the Democratic party continues to be center-left. But the election returns and publi- opinion data that support her thesis become much less important when the party’s biggest stars make a hard-left turn. The Democrats seem ripe for a takeover by Bernie and his pals, or at least for a blistering and incendiary battle for control similar to what the GOP experienced last time around.

Blame for Democratic radicalization is most often assigned to Trump — there’s little he isn’t blamed for — but it really ought to go to President Obama. It was Obama who established “daylight” between the United States and Israel, who blamed opposition to his Iran deal on “money” from “lobbyists,” who failed to veto a U.N. resolution singling out the Jewish State and declaring its settlements to have “no legal validity.” It was Obama’s disastrous second term — when he handed the reins of governance to an administrative state immune from popular sovereignty, when he flouted the Constitution in expanding his administrative amnesty, when he made overtures to hostile governments in Iran and Cuba — that set into motion the decline of the American center-left. Now the Obama bros defend Omar on their podcast and in their newsletter, and bolster the presidential candidacy of Robert Francis “Beto” “Take the Wall Down” O’Rourke. If Obama really wanted to arrest the Democrats’ slide into socialism and anti-Semitism, he’d speak out. Do you think Joe Biden will able to stop it? Fat chance. The odds of a Bernie Sanders nomination, a Howard Schultz candidacy, and a Donald Trump victory increase every time Ilhan Omar opens her mouth.

Radical Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has recently been under fire for her most recent anti-Semitic comments specifically targeting Israel.

Instead of taking the opportunity to condemn the congress woman, Democrats have spent the entire week tiptoeing around the subject in an effort to defend the anti-Semite.

Claim Your Free Trump 2020 Hat – Just Cover Shipping

House Minority Whip James Clyburn took things to another level when he told descendants of Holocaust survivors and people put in Franklin Roosevelt’s Japanese internment camps that they need to “check their privilege.”

Check out what The Hill reported:

Clyburn came to Omar’s defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States.

Her experience, Clyburn argued, is much more empirical — and powerful — than that of people who are generations removed from the Holocaust, Japanese internment camps during World War II and the other violent episodes that have marked history.

It gets worse. Clyburn goes on to mock Holocaust descendants by saying, “I’m serious about that. There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her,” Clyburn said. “I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”

He wasn’t done there. Clyburn made it clear that the victims in this situation were not Jewish people who were targeted by Omar, but it was actually Omar herself! Oh, that totally makes sense!

“She won’t be targeted. We’re going to target those people who had her picture on the Twin Towers,” Clyburn told the Hill.

“This resolution is going to be inclusive; it’s going to be expansive; and I might just try to add something to deal with that billboard that’s up in Pennsylvania this morning calling John Lewis and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus racists,” he added.

WOW! Instead of going after Omar who is a member of Congress who spewed anti-Semitic hate, Clyburn is going to go after some random guy in Pennsylvania who put up billboards.

This is the Democratic party for you.

When one of them messes up, they blame someone else, even if that person is just some random guy.

We saw this similar tactic used by the Left earlier this week.

After Omar became under fire again for her anti-Semitism, the House led by Nancy Pelosi decided that they were NOT going to condemn Omar, but instead they were going to come out with a statement that said “all hate is bad,” specifically mentioning Islamophobia in an effort to target the Right.

Talk about a deflection!

Pelosi didn’t even mention Omar’s name in the resolution.

The House Democrats are sending a very clear message that racism and anti-Semitism is acceptable as long as you are a Democrat. Imagine the outrage if these comments came from a Republican!

Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin retold the story of the Holocaust and the horrific persecution of the Jewish people to remind listeners of what anti-Semitism actually looks like.

“When you look at this tiny little country of Israel, the countries around it — Arab Muslim countries — have tried repeatedly to wipe it and the people there off the face of the earth. And in each attempt, they have failed. In each attempt, they have failed. Nobody’s tried to wipe Egypt off the face of the earth. Nobody’s tried to wipe Saudi Arabia off the face of the earth. Nobody’s tried to wipe Jordan off the face of the earth. Nobody’s tried to wipe Syria off the face of the earth. Nobody’s tried to wipe Lebanon off the face of the earth, and on and on. But Israel, because it’s populated with Jews, is to be wiped off the face of the earth. So says the Iranian regime, so say the various terrorist organizations, and so say members of the Democrat party who are in the United States Congress, lead by Ilhan Omar, a Somalian Islamic Muslim, who has challenged time and again the right of the state of Israel to exist, as has her colleague Tlaib, as has her colleague Ocasio-Cortez,” Levin said.

Earlier Thursday, the House of Representatives passed a nonbinding resolution, 407 to 23, which they claimed condemned anti-Semitism. Levin explained that in fact, the resolution does the opposite, though the New York Times and Washington Post have already scorned the Republicans who voted against it.

“This resolution, cobbled together by the Democrat party leadership — which includes Jewish Americans — did not condemn Omar, Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez. It did not condemn anti-Semitism qua anti-Semitism. You know what it condemned? The American people. It condemned the American people as an anti-Semitic people, which we are not,” he said. “As a racist people, which we are not. As a homophobic people, which we are not. And down the list.”

“The hate-America Democrats passed a resolution telling you that America sucks. And I am telling you, as an American Jew, I pray to God every day and thank him for being a child of this country — as we all do, from all walks of life. This is not about America. This is about Islamic fundamentalists who have now, as a result of our immigration policies and lack of assimilation, been elected to the United States House of Representatives. They hate America, they hate Jews, and they hate the state of Israel. That’s a fact.”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and the old guard Democrats at large – are in a very difficult position.

The radical young voters the Democrats have been courting for years have finally elected like-minded radical young representatives – and Pelosi and her leadership team has no control over them.

A big reason why, as I mentioned on Hannity this week, is that there is a wide generational gap between Democratic House leadership and freshmen Democrats, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and others.

The median year of birth for the 59 Democrats who assumed office this year is 1973. Sixteen of these members were born on or after 1980. Nancy Pelosi was born in 1940. The average age of Democratic leadership as a whole is 71. To the new Democrats, the members of leadership are like the grandparents. I don’t mean this in a positive way that could foster an opportunity for maternal or paternal mentorships. To the new Democrats, Pelosi’s team represents an outdated, backward way of thinking about government. How many 30-somethings do you know who share the same point of view as their 80-year-old grandparents?

The result is, these new Democrats are throwing a party – and the grandparents aren’t invited. Pelosi and members of Democratic leadership are simply trapped in a cycle of responding to headlines. This is how you end up with the so-called Green New Deal, which is a work of complete legislative fantasy that would utterly bankrupt the country. It’s also how the House got to a second forced public condemnation of the new Democrats’ flagrant anti-Semitism. Pelosi simply can’t control the young, radical, progressive wing, which is ardently socialist, anti-Israel, and contemptuous of America and its history.

This gap will continue to create massive cross-pressure in the party. For the Democrats who represent moderate districts – perhaps districts that voted for President Trump – the radical left-wing of the party is terrifying. Meanwhile, those who represent radical districts are going to continue having their party and continue to ignore the old guard.

This is not at aberration. The new class of Democrats despise Pelosi and the grandparents. The old guard has failed to create the radically progressive, socialist America that the new guard wants. This phenomenon has some similarities with conservative voters who widely rejected establishment Republicans and the liberal voters who rejected Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary.

Already, because of Pelosi’s inability to control her caucus, the Democrats can’t do anything positive. It’s making them desperate. The most they can do is focus their efforts on their shared vendetta against President Trump and everyone in his orbit.

The 81 subpoenas that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler levied against Trump allies – many of whom are private citizens who never intended or wanted to become public figures – is a perfect example of this desperation. Democrats are slowly realizing – with dawning horror – that Robert Mueller is not likely to provide them anything close to a smoking gun in their crusade against the President, so they are resorting to punishing his political campaign, family members, and longtime private sector employees in a vindictive public display. They are seeking to hurt anyone and everyone who has helped President Trump in any way. At best, it’s a gross political circus. At worst, it’s callous abuse of power.

These divides in the Democratic Party are only going to become more pronounced as Pelosi’s grip slips further. The new Democrats’ private party will become increasingly raucous until it has lost all touch with normal Americans. Moderate Democrats will have to continue answering for their colleague’s radicalism. Pelosi and the grandparents will not be invited along, but they will still be left cleaning up the mess.

The resolution–originally intended as a rebuke of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic rhetoric–faced backlash from a number of radical Democrats who defended the congresswoman and ultimately forced the party to produce a more broad resolution, condemning anti-Semitism, racism and Islamophobia.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Where’s the outrage over the 23 GOP members who voted NO on a resolution condemning bigotry today? Oh, there’s none? Did they get called out, raked over, ambushed in halls and relentlessly asked why not? No? Okay. Got it.”

Cheney responded, “Here’s the outrage: your party put a sham resolution on the floor designed to protect the anti-Semitic hate and bigotry of @IlhanMN.”

The resolution–passed overwhelmingly yesterday–was opposed by 23 Republicans because of its watered down nature and inability to

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), who was the first Congressman to vote “no” said, “Anti-Semitism is a very special kind of hatred that should never be watered down. There has never been a persecution of a people like the Jewish people.”

As i pointed out on the House floor, if this was a Republican pushing what Rep. Omar is peddling with this anti-Semitic hate it would have named that Republican member.”

A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar is depicted with Hirsi and their children on Omar’s campaign website.

The post further notes that Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, implying that the latter marriage assisted his entry into the United States. Her brother was a British citizen. “As soon as Ilhan Omar married him,” the post continues, “he started university at her [a]lma mater North Dakota State University where he graduated in 2012. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Minneapolis where he was living in a public housing complex and was later evicted. He then returned to the United Kingdom where he now lives.”

In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned the family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

Newly uncovered evidence — exclusively published below — adds another allegation: Ilhan Omar has since signed off on apparent falsehoods, under penalty of perjury, during her 2017 divorce from the man in question: Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.

New Evidence, New Allegations

Minnesota law deems court records of divorce proceedings to be available to the public. In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned the family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

The above document depicts Omar, under penalty of perjury, attesting to the court that she has not had contact with her legal husband since June 2011.

To those familiar with the 2016 coverage of this story, this claim should strike as a jaw-dropper. (Ed. note: scroll down below for a summary of the Ilhan Omar backstory.)

To reference just one example, the three immediately following photos were pivotal elements of the 2016 coverage. These pictures first appeared on Ilhan Omar’s personal Instagram account in 2014 (her username at the time was “hameey”), and depict Ilhan visiting Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in London that year.

In contrast to Omar’s attestation of zero contact since 2011, two of Omar’s three self-published photos here actually appear to show physical contact some three years later:

There are many other examples of consistent social media communication — comments like — between the two since June 2011.

When confronted with the above pictures in 2016, UK resident Ahmed N. Elmi admitted to a reporter that he was indeed the scarved man in the three pictures. However, he also claimed to not know the name of the woman in the colorful head covering adjacent to him, and that she certainly was not his legal wife. He then gave the reporter a different birthdate for himself than the April 4, 1985, birthdate given for Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in Omar’s divorce petition.

Democrats are trying as hard as they can to re-package this whole issue in the way Warren is doing here, and they can’t be allowed to get away with it.

No, all criticism of Israel is not necessarily anti-Semitism. Not by a long shot, and more than criticism of America is treason. And no one is claiming it is.

But Democrats are claiming that Israel’s supporters are claiming it, and worse, they’re using this deflection to cover up what Omar really said and what’s really wrong with it.

Here’s Warren performing a classic hide-the-ball trick:

“We have a moral duty to combat hateful ideologies in our own country and around the world — and that includes both anti-Semitism and Islamophobia,” the Massachusetts Democrat said in a statement. “In a democracy, we can and should have an open, respectful debate about the Middle East that focuses on policy. Branding criticism of Israel as automatically anti-Semitic has a chilling effect on our public discourse and makes it harder to achieve a peaceful solution between Israelis and Palestinians. Threats of violence — like those made against Rep. Omar — are never acceptable.”

TRENDING: 1 day later: Hillary is still thinking about 2020 – is ‘surprised’ you took her seriously yesterday

Hold it right there.

First of all, Omar’s criticism wasn’t even of Israel. It was of Americans who support Israel. First she falsely claimed that supporters of the American-Israeli Political Action Committee are in it “for the Benjamins.” Then when someone explained to her that AIPAC doesn’t give any money to political candidates, she went into the classic anti-Semitic trope that claims Jews in America have divided loyalty, and in fact have “sworn allegiance” to a foreign government.

What complete and utter rot. If Canada was under attack, we would defend it. If Britain was under attack, we would defend it. Same goes for France, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic and many other nations with whom we have alliances.

But here’s the difference: Israel is under attack a lot more often than any of the nations I just mentioned. And the people who attack Israel are also the religious and ideological allies of Ilhan Omar. What she mischaracterizes as an untoward allegiance to a foreign government is merely the support of an ally. The problem she has with it is that she hates this particular ally.

Not convinced?

Her rant brought about some digging of her older statements, which brought about the revelation that in 2012 she claimed “Israel has hypnotized the world.”

That is not only nuts, if anything it’s the opposite of the truth. Just check in at the UN to see how the world feels about Israel. Most of the creatures who lurk there seem to feel the same way about Israel that Ilhan Omar does. Only a tiny number of countries, including the United States, sticks up for the Jewish state.

This is important because Omar’s statements go way beyond “criticism of Israel.” She’s engaging in well-worn anti-Semitic garbage that accuses Jews of disloyalty to America, claims Jewish money buys control over American leaders, and claims that the Jewish state is some sort of reservoir for global evil.

And yet here’s Elizabeth Warren, claiming disingenuously that Omar’s the real victim here, as if she’s done nothing more than offer a few critiques at the policies of Benjamin Netanyahu.

RELATED: Pelosi: Ilhan Omar isn’t anti-Semitic – she just doesn’t understand the ‘weight of her words’

Democrats don’t seem capable of getting enough of their members on board with a simple resolution condemning anti-Semitism, which should tell you everything you need to know about today’s Democratic Party. They’ve got a real lunatic in their midst in Ilhan Omar, and they won’t do anything about it because their left-wing base pretty much thinks the same way she does.

Fun fact: Jewish Americans are known to vote Democratic at a rate of about 75 percent. When they start to realize that anti-Semitism is both rampant and tolerated within the Democratic Party, how much of that 75 percent just might peel off and vote for Donald Trump – who has steadfastly supported Israel – in 2020?

I’m starting to think Ilhan Omar was God’s clever trick to ensure Trump’s re-election.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) trashed former President Barack Obama in a new profile of the freshman lawmaker, saying the "hope and change" he offered was a mirage and he was one of many predecessors to President Donald Trump to have "really bad policies."

Omar was the subject of a Politico story on her and fellow Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips (D., Minn.), who represents a neighboring district. The two are framed as symbolizing the colliding forces in the new Democratic House majority, with Omar representing the far-left flank and Phillips the more center-left sensibilities that helped recapture suburban districts from Republicans in 2018.

Omar, a Somali-born refugee, was fed up with the Democratic establishment by the time she ran for office in 2016 for a seat in the Minnesota state house. She won and then easily captured a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018, and she wasn't shy about telling Politico her objections to Obama-era policies, like detention centers for illegal immigrant children and the "droning of countries around the world:"

As she saw it, the party ostensibly committed to progressive values had become complicit in perpetuating the status quo. Omar says the "hope and change" offered by Barack Obama was a mirage. Recalling the "caging of kids" at the U.S.-Mexico border and the "droning of countries around the world" on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.

Without naming Obama specifically, Omar said no one should get away with malfeasance in office if they had "the pretty face and the smile."

"We can’t be only upset with Trump … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was," Omar said. "And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile."

Omar's specific invocation of the "hope and change" motto of Obama was striking, given she tweeted during his farewell address in 2017: "Thank you Obama for being a source of inspiration, hope and change. I have always been proud to call you my president!"

Omar is at the center of her second anti-Semitic controversy in as many months as a sitting member of Congress. After being forced to apologize last month for saying pro-Israel politicians are paid off by the lobbying group AIPAC and saying it was "all about the Benjamins," she said last week she wanted to "talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country."

The latter remarks set off an uproar within the Democratic caucus, with some members condemning her anti-Semitic tropes and others saying she was being unfairly singled out. Democrats ultimately voted on a resolution that started off condemning anti-Semitism and was ultimately amended to include opposition to all forms of hate, without mentioning Omar.

One of the prominent liberal critics of Omar's "all about the Benjamins" flap last month was former Obama Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, who said she had made "outrageous" comments and should be condemned by all Democrats.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has stirred the political pot with her support of the Green New Deal package. She goes off on so many different tangents that ultimately make no sense (particularly when it comes to paying the bill for all the junk that bill has built into it) that it’s enough to make a person’s head spin. She’s been particularly vocal on the issue of global warming, and I’m sure she didn’t expect to find herself faced with so much opposition from within her own party.

What follows below is a partial transcript of a conversation between two of Breitbart’s hosts and the founder of Greenpeace. Up until now at least, Greenpeace has been a strong proponent of a “greener” planet, and who you might think would also be a strong AOC supporter on the issue of global warming and climate change – but you would be wrong, at least from their founder’s point of view.

Greenpeace co-founder and former president of Greenpeace Canada Patrick Moore described the cynical and corrupt machinations fueling the narrative of anthropocentric global warming and “climate change” in a Wednesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Moore explained how fear and guilt are leveraged by proponents of climate change:

Fear has been used all through history to gain control of people’s minds and wallets and all else, and the climate catastrophe is strictly a fear campaign — well, fear and guilt — you’re afraid you’re killing your children because you’re driving them in your SUV and emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and you feel guilty for doing that. There’s no stronger motivation than those two.

More from the conversation:

And so you’ve got the green movement creating stories that instill fear in the public. You’ve got the media echo chamber — fake news — repeating it over and over and over again to everybody that they’re killing their children, and then you’ve got the green politicians who are buying scientists with government money to produce fear for them in the form of scientific-looking materials, and then you’ve got the green businesses, the rent-seekers and the crony capitalists who are taking advantage of massive subsidies, huge tax write-offs, and government mandates requiring their technologies to make a fortune on this, and then of course you’ve got the scientists who are willingly, they’re basically hooked on government grants.

When they talk about the 99 percent consensus [among scientists] on climate change, that’s a completely ridiculous and false numbers, but most of the scientists — put it in quotes, scientists — who are pushing this catastrophic theory are getting paid by public money. They are not being paid by General Electric or Dupont or 3M to do this research, where private companies expect to get something useful from their research that might produce a better product and make them a profit in the end because people want it — build a better mousetrap type of idea — but most of what these so-called scientists are doing is simply producing more fear so that politicians can use it control people’s mind and get their votes because some of the people are convinced, ‘Oh, this politician can save my kid from certain doom.’

It is the biggest lie since people thought the Earth was at the center of the universe. This is Galileo-type stuff. If you remember, Galileo discovered that the sun was at the center of the solar system and the Earth revolved around it. He was sentenced to death by the Catholic Church, and only because he recanted was he allowed to live in house arrest for the rest of his life.

So this was around the beginning of what we call the Enlightenment, when science became the way in which we gained knowledge instead of using superstition and instead of using invisible demons and whatever else, we started to understand that you have to have observation of actual events and then you have to repeat those observations over and over again, and that is basically the scientific method.

Wow! Wonders never cease! Did he hit the nail on the head, or what (especially concerning the issue of politicians wanting to be the saving grace of the next generation). They have an insatiable lust for power. That’s the real bottom line.

For example, earlier today we posted an article talking about how Linda Sarsour and CAIR called out the Democrats for racism against Ilhan Omar. That is downright funny – because it is the TRUTH! In theory, at least, they seemed to be on the same side, but now that there’s a danger of Omar being disciplined for her own racism against Israel, they’re biting the hand that feeds them. They have the same issue that the Democrats have in that they all want to stay in power, so they will attack anyone that threatens that power base.

Thursday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin hammered Democrats in the House of Representatives after the body passed a resolution condemning antisemitism.

However, Levin criticized the resolution for not including condemnations of Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in the resolution.

“This resolution cobbled together by the Democrat Party leadership — which includes Jewish Americans — did not condemn Omar, Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez,” he said. “It did not condemn antisemitism qua antisemitism. You know what it condemned? The American people. It condemned the American people as an antisemitic people, which we are not. As a racist people, which we are not. As a homophobic people, which we are not. And down the list.”

“The hate-America Democrats passed a resolution telling you that America sucks,” Levin continued. “And I am telling you, as an American Jew, I pray to God every day and thank him for being a child of this country — as we all do, from all walks of life. This is not about America. This is about Islamic fundamentalists who have now, as a result of our immigration policies and lack of assimilation, been elected to the United States House of Representatives. They hate America, they hate Jews, and they hate the state of Israel. That’s a fact.”

Who will win in the controversy over Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments?

Well, for now, looks like all Democrats are losing because they can’t put out a simple anti-Semitic resolution. If you can’t even do that, how can you ask anyone to invest any effort in you to run anything or vote for you for the presidency?

Candidates like Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) couldn’t even bring themselves to specifically condemn her remarks. Harris even came to her defense saying that condemning her might “put her at risk.”

Now it looks like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who started the whole idea of the resolution is backing down a bit, saying that she didn’t belief that Ilhan Omar’s comments were “intentionally” anti-Semitic.

She’s also saying that there wouldn’t be a vote on the resolution this week because the House Foreign Affairs Committee is going to work on it more.

Rep. Eliot Engel, who is the head of the Committee, condemned some of Omar’s remarks last week.

This week, he too seems to be backing off a bit, saying he wasn’t looking to have her kicked off the Committee, “I’m looking to get rid of anti-semitism, not looking to punish anybody.” Instead he said, “I’m hoping that she’ll grow and she’ll change.”

Isn’t she already a grown woman? Why are you treating her like a child? And how many times is this now?

Democrats are digging their own hole and pulling the dirt in on top of themselves with the epic fail that is this resolution saga.

Democrats have completely shot themselves in the foot over their “Anti-Semitic” resolution.

It’s taken them days just to try to construct what they want to say which shouldn’t take anytime at all.

Protip? “We condemn anti-Semitism in all its forms including the remarks made by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).”

If they’d done that, it still wouldn’t have been a substantive action like kicking her off the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Except they couldn’t even do that, they had to try to water it down by adding a more general condemnation of hate and of Islamophobia, reportedly.

And there was no mention of Omar.

So essentially it’s a toothless general comment as it stands in draft now.

But even so, the attempt has now antagonized the far left and defenders of Omar, one of whom is now calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a “white supremacist.”

What irony that the Democrats are now getting hoisted on their own petard.

First, Linda Sarsour attacked Pelosi saying she was a “white feminist” helping to support the patriarchy, basically demeaning white feminists, which basically is the majority of Sarsour’s Women’s March contingent. Way to rip your own folks.

Now, another far-left Democrat is going after Pelosi.

From Daily Wire:

Anger at Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for daring to allow a floor vote on a measure condemning anti-Semitism spread beyond progressive Democrats in Congress late Tuesday, when a former candidate for the “Justice Democrats” — the same arm that elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) — called the Speaker a “white supremacist.”

Saira Rao, a “Justice Democrat” who ran for office in Colorado (and lost), has been active in supporting Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) following an outcry over clearly anti-Semitic statements Omar made last week at an event for progressive activists. Tuesday night, she weighed in on the debate over whether House Democrats should adopt a measure condemning anti-Semitism by comparing Pelosi to infamous white supremacist David Duke.

“I am going to unfollow anyone who posts anything positive about Nancy Pelosi,” Rao tweeted. “Nancy Pelosi is a white feminist. White feminists are white supremacists. Nancy Pelosi is a white supremacist. And if you idolize Nancy Pelosi, you may as well declare allegiance to David Duke.”

Rao praised Sarsour’s statement earlier in the day, which said that white feminists are part of the “patriarchy.”

Way to toss most of your supporters and make them evil.

Now many other Democrats, like presidential candidates Kamala Harris, aren’t condemning Omar’s comments either. Harris said putting Omar “in the spotlight” might “put her at risk.”

This might be funny that they were tearing each other apart if it wasn’t so sad that they can’t make a simple resolution against anti-Semitism and deal with an anti-Semitic member.

The House passed a resolution widely condemning hate late Thursday, but Democrats are facing backlash over their wavering, last minute edits to the resolution and failure to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar for her antisemitic statements.

Progressive Democrats came to Omar’s defense this week after senior Democrats challenged Omar’s statements. It didn’t take long for the Democratic stalwarts to cave to the young progressives, who were critical of anyone condemning Omar for blatantly racist remarks against Jewish people.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was one of the first senior Democrats to break under pressure from new Congressional progressives that came out in support of Omar. She made excuses for Omar’s antisemitic statements, and instead said the vote was to condemn all “forms of hatred.” Pelosi spoke to reporters earlier Thursday where she addressed Omar’s (D-MN), recent anti semitic statements.

Pelosi said she does not believe Omar is anti semitic. Further, Pelosi told reporters that Omar “doesn’t understand the weight of her words”.

The bill originally condemned anti semitism. Then, it was edited. The Democrats added other groups to the resolution such as actions of hate against anti-Muslim and all other anti-minority. It wasn’t done, however, because by late Tuesday they added Latinos. The Latinos were added at the request of the congressional Hispanic Caucus.

However, the bill makes no mention of Omar’s name.

“Whereas white supremacists in the United States have exploited and continue to exploit bigotry and weaponize hate for political gain, targeting traditionally persecuted peoples, including African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, the LGBTQ community, immigrants, and others with verbal attacks, incitement, and violence.” reads the new section.

Originally, the vote was set for early this week.

Key resolutions from the bill:

(1) rejects the perpetuation of anti-Semitic stereotypes in the United States and around the world, including the pernicious myth of dual loyalty and foreign allegiance, especially in the context of support for the United States-Israel alliance;

(2) condemns anti-Semitic acts and statements as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States;

(3) reaffirms its support for the mandate of the United States Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism as part of the broader policy priority of fostering international religious freedom and protecting human rights all over the world;

(4) rejects attempts to justify hatred or violent attacks as an acceptable expression of disapproval or frustration over political events in the Middle East or elsewhere;

(5) acknowledges the harm suffered by Muslims and others from the harassment, discrimination, and violence that result from anti-Muslim bigotry;

(6) condemns anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against all minorities as contrary to the values of the United States;

(7) condemns the death threats received by Jewish and Muslim Members of Congress, including in recent weeks;

(8) encourages law enforcement and government officials to avoid conduct that raises the specter of unconstitutional profiling against anyone because of their race, religion, nationality, political, or particular social group, including the assignment of blame or targeting members of an entire religious group for increased suspicion, based on the conduct of a single individual or small group of individuals; and

(9) encourages all public officials to confront the reality of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, and other forms of bigotry, as well as historical struggles against them, to ensure that the United States will live up to the transcendent principles of tolerance, religious freedom, and equal protection as embodied in the Declaration of Independence and the first and 14th amendments to the Constitution.

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was apparently unmoved Thursday by Meghan McCain's tearful remarks about her on "The View."

McCain had become emotional during the ABC talk show, discussing Omar's recent criticisms of Israel and its supporters. She said Omar's remarks were hurtful to many of her Jewish friends.

“It is very dangerous, very dangerous," McCain added, "and I think we collectively as Americans on both sides, what Ilhan Omar is saying is very scary to me. It’s very scary to a lot of people and I don’t think you have to be Jewish to recognize that.”

OMAR, ANTI-SEMITISM DEBATE IN THE HOUSE ENDS WITH A LAUNDRY LIST RESOLUTION -- WHAT A SHAME

But instead of responding directly to McCain, Omar retweeted a post that criticized McCain for "faux outrage" and referred to past statements attributed to McCain's late father, U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who died last August at age 81.

“Meghan’s late father literally sang ‘bomb bomb bomb Iran’ and insisted on referring to his Vietnamese captors as ‘g--ks'," read the post by Medhi Hasan, an "Intercept" columnist and Al Jazeera host. "He also, lest we forget, gave the world Sarah Palin. So a little less faux outrage over a former-refugee-turned-freshman-representative pls.”

Omar's retweet was praised by many of her followers as a sign that the freshman congresswoman was "standing up to the establishment." But the retweet also attracted more negative attention to the Somali-born lawmaker, just hours after the U.S. House voted in favor of an anti-hate resolution that was initially inspired by the Minnesota Democrat.

Omar has resisted calls for her to apologize for blasting those who pledge “allegiance to a foreign country,” referring to Israel, in what has been decried as an anti-Semitic trope.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition (MEWC) director Nahren Anweya on Wednesday warned Americans who visit Minnesota’s 5th district, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district, the 2016 “terrorist recruitment capital of the country.”

“You won’t even think you’re in America,” she said of the district that elected Ilhan Omar.

MEWC Director of Speical Projects Anweya was speaking at an MEWC press conference calling for Rep. Omar to resign. She said she has cousins and family members “called whores for showing” part of the back of the arm in Iraq, “a country where one day they were wearing mini skirts.”

“It is truly because of people like [Rep.] Ilhan [Omar], when the government is infiltrated and it starts this way because it happened in Iraq and it happened against us,” she went on. “Iraq used to be a country where Jews lived freely, where Assyrian Christians lived freely, where even Armenians were there, and even moderate Muslims lived until sharia law took place and everyone was affected.”

“Americans truly need to understand that this will affect you one day if you don’t make a change right now,” she said of sharia, adding she knows the early signs of genocide.

Anweya asked how the House of Representatives passed 393-0, “Resolution 75 recognizing the ongoing genocide of Christians and other religious minorities under ISIS” in March 2016 but now support representatives like Ilhan Omar. She cited Omar’s request to a judge for a lighter sentence for a terrorist supporter.

“We are here because of God, to give you a warning as Americans,” said Anweya. “We are here to tell you this is coming here, and it is here and it will affect you. It will affect everyone.”

“You will see your daughters get beheaded,” she went on. Anweya said she interviewed hundreds of families of all religions affected in the genocide in Iraq who “watched family members get executed right in front of them and that’s when reality hit them and they knew it was too late and that sharia law had taken full control of that country.”

She said she would not stop until Rep. Omar resigns in light of her anti-Semitism, possible ties to terrorism, and sympathy for radicals. She pointed to her experience being born and raised in the Middle East.

Anweya went further to decry members of Congress supporting Omar while “knowing what is happening in Minnesota’s 5th district,” Ilhan Omar’s district.

“If you don’t know, I highly advise you to take a trip to Minnesota’s 5th district and you will see what’s happening,” Anweya suggested. “You won’t even think you’re in America.”

Earlier today Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke endorsed radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday as the “most important person in Congress.”

David Duke posted a photo of Ilhan Omar to his Twitter account on Thursday with a “heart eyes emoji,” showing his love for her after her recent comments disparaging Jews and Israel.

“By Defiance to Z.O.G. [Zionist Occupation Government] Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” David Duke said in a Twitter caption linking to his blog post.

David Duke praised Ilhan Omar on his podcast/blog for being the “one person in Congress willing to notice AIPAC and the “dual” loyalty of many members of Congress.”

The political party that’s long attracted the support of 75 percent of American Jews has shown this week that their leaders won’t stand up for the community when it matters.

There’s a revolution underway. American Jews, who have been an integral part of the Democratic coalition for more than a century, are currently being made uncomfortable in their political home. And the whole thing is being live-tweeted.

What’s shocking isn’t that there are anti-Semites (and those willing to tolerate them) on the political left. There are Democratic members of Congress with ties to Louis Farrakhan, after all. But leftist anti-Semitism, which has continuously bubbled just below the surface for many years — and too often been blithely ignored — has burst into full view this year.

First there was the Women’s March subsumed by anti-Semitism, then the whole brouhaha over Sen. Marco Rubio’s anti-boycott, divestment, and sanctions bill, and now there’s Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, who simply can’t stop slandering American Jews and Zionists, two overlapping but not identical groups.

The Democratic National Committee felt compelled to pull their partnership with the Women’s March because it had become so toxic. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also managed to quickly formulate a leadership response condemning anti-Semitism when Omar created a stir with her hateful words just last month. But now something has clearly shifted.

Pelosi’s attempt to lead her caucus in a symbolic vote condemning anti-Semitism, which should have been a gimme, became a political football. Rather than rally to support long-time Jewish colleagues, who have expressed serious concerns about Omar’s anti-Semitism, members are mutinying in support of Omar.

Pelosi was recently lauded for her discipline and leadership. Yet she seems to have lost control of her own members. So she can’t enforce Rep. Eliot Engel’s demand for an apology after Omar’s latest “vile anti-Semitic slur,” accusing American Jews of dual loyalty, let alone strip Omar of her seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. House Republicans would support Omar’s removal, but it’s increasingly clear that many Democrats do not. Just like Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, Omar isn’t going anywhere.

From the outside, it appears we are watching a revolution in real-time. Pelosi and other long-time leaders are attempting to maintain power amidst a storm started by a freshman who’s been in office for two short months. (Doesn’t it feel longer?)

There have always been members of Congress who’ve taken a tough line on Israel. What Omar wants is different, though. She wants to make Congress a safe space for expressing Jew hatred, and based on the outpouring of support for her this week, there’s Democratic support for that. Omar has also had back-up from powerful progressive allies outside Congress like Linda Sarsour, who took to Facebook to blast Pelosi as “a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men.”

Those Democrats who want to uphold traditional norms, including the marginalization of anti-Semitism, are fighting an uphill battle. But is that battle still raging off-camera, or have Democratic leaders already surrendered?

It’s concerning that in less than one week, Pelosi has been reduced to pretending that Omar’s tweets were not “intentionally anti-Semitic,” while Majority Leader Steny Hoyer strained credulity, saying that Omar’s not an anti-Semite. That they lack the support of their members to speak truthfully on this issue, let alone take any decisive action, is a glaring problem.

And to be clear, the problem is not the use of “tropes.” Words are not violence, but hateful speech, especially from people in positions of authority, can lead to harmful real-world actions.

Democrats like to remind us of that link in other settings, but not here. Consider Sen. Kamala Harris’ statement: “I am concerned that the spotlight being put on Congresswoman Omar may put her at risk.” Omar is a public figure, so fair game for criticism, as Harris should know. It is striking, though, that Harris expresses zero concern about American Jews’ safety, a mere four months after 11 American Jews were massacred while praying in Pittsburgh.

This fight has been a long time in the making, but things are changing quickly. It’s been only two years since Jewish women felt the need to publicly make the case that one could be both a Zionist and a feminist. Is it now time for a debate about whether one can be both a Jew (who believes in Israel’s right to exist) and a Democrat?

The political party that’s long attracted the support of 75 percent of American Jews has shown this week that their leaders won’t stand up for the community when it matters. It’s quite breathtaking, really. It’s not only bipartisan support for Israel that’s being debunked as much weaker than advertised, but also, quite troublingly, an acceptance of Jew hatred directed at fellow Americans. For the record, that hatred is not only being tolerated but embraced by congressional Democrats.

The “allyship” progressives always cheer is proving to be a one-way street. Jews, who have traditionally voted for Democrats, are feeling betrayed, abandoned, and even politically homeless.

This path leads toward disaster. For Jews to truly have a home in America, anti-Semitism must be marginalized by both major political parties. And if the Democrats succumb to Omar’s anti-Semitism, the only winners will be bigots.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) celebrated the passage of a resolution against antisemitism in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday, even though her own antisemitic remarks triggered the vote, because it was the first time Congress had condemned “Anti-Muslim bigotry.”

The World Jewish Congress criticized Democrats for “watering down” language on antisemitism after including a variety of other groups that had little or no relation to the controversy. The resolution also failed to name Omar.

In a joint statement with Reps. Rashid Tlaib (D-MI) and André Carson (D-IN), the other Muslims in Congress, Omar said:

Today is historic on many fronts. It’s the first time we have ever voted on a resolution condemning Anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation’s history. Anti-Muslim crimes have increased 99% from 2014-2016 and are still on the rise.

We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism, and white supremacy. At a time when extremism is on the rise, we must explicitly denounce religious intolerance of all kinds and acknowledge the pain felt by all communities. Our nation is having a difficult conversation and we believe this is great progress.

Omar neither retracted nor apologized for her own antisemitic comments, in which she claimed that Americans who support Israel owe “allegiance to a foreign country.” It was her second antisemitic outburst in recent weeks.

Omar and her supporters pointed out that she had been the target of anti-Muslim slurs, including a display in the West Virginia state legislature that portrayed her under the exploding World Trade Center on Sep. 11, 2001.

House Foreign Affairs Committee chair Eliot Engel (D-NY) called Omar’s comments a “vile anti-Semitic slur.” But Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who appointed Omar to the committee, said Thursday she would not demand that Omar apologize.

Update: The House actually passed a resolution condemning anti-Muslim bigotry less than a week after 9/11.

President Donald Trump criticized Democrats for failing to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for antisemitic comments on Friday, calling them the “anti-Israel party.”

“They’ve become an anti-Israel party, they have become an anti-Jewish party, and that’s too bad,” Trump said about the Democrat party.

The president commented on the controversy as he left the White House to tour tornado damage in Alabama and Georgia.

Trump called the “anti-hate” resolution passed by the House “a disgrace” after critics described it as an attempt to mask Omar’s antisemitic comments.

“I thought that vote was a disgrace, and so does everybody else, if you get an honest answer from politicians, they thought it was a disgrace,” he said.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) described the vote in a statement on Thursday as “a sham put forward by Democrats to avoid condemning one of their own and denouncing vile anti-Semitism.”

She was one of 23 Republican members to vote against it.

Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) also criticized the vote.

“It feels like we’re only able to call the use of antisemitic language by any colleague of ours if we’re addressing all forms of hatred, and it feels like we can’t say it’s antisemitism unless everyone agrees that it’s antisemitism,” he said on the House floor on Thursday.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) excused the many anti-Semitic comments spoken and tweeted by freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-CA) as Omar having language issues. Omar, 37, is a Muslim refugee from Somalia who came to the U.S. in 1995 and became a citizen in 2000. Omar is a 2011 graduate of North Dakota State University with degrees in political science and international studies.

Pelosi waved her left arm and hand continuously as she explained away the highly educated Omar’s anti-Semitism as ignorance of the English language.

House Democrats are pushing back against a proposed resolution to condemn anti-Semitism

The Federalist

Published  1 month ago

The Democrats’ internal fight over the anti-Semitism resolution reveals a stark picture of the competing factions vying for control over the party’s agenda.

Daily Intelligencer

Published  1 month ago

The Democratic party spent the week working through an ugly internal drama arising from Representative Ilhan Omar’s depiction of supporters of the U.S. alliance with Israel as promoting “allegiance to a foreign country.” Pro-Israel Democrats wanted to get the party on record calling such claims a form of anti-Semitism. Omar’s allies rallied around her.

Democrats managed to smooth it over with an anti-hate resolution, first incorporating more fulsome disavowals of anti-Muslim bigotry, and then language denouncing bigotry against … basically everybody (“African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, the LGBTQ community, immigrants, and others”). The resolution declared Nazis are bad, Martin Luther King Jr. was good, and — the real heart of the matter — rejected “the pernicious myth of dual loyalty and foreign allegiance, especially in the context of support for the United States-Israel alliance.”

It was a very Democratic-party solution. Adding to the comedy, 23 House Republicans voted no on the resolution, joined by a judicious abstention from white nationalist Steve King. Amazingly, after spending days focusing relentlessly on Omar’s comments, Republicans voted against a resolution specifically deeming those comments to be anti-Semitic. And their stated reason is that the resolution also attacked other kinds of racism.

Louie Gohmert says he will vote against the resolution, because it now "defends just about everything" instead of just anti-Semitism.

— Matt Fuller (@MEPFuller) March 7, 2019

Possibly their actual gripe was that the resolution noted, “On August 11 and 12, 2017, self-identified neo-Confederates, white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and Ku Klux Klansmen held white supremacist events in Charlottesville, Virginia, where they marched on a synagogue under the Nazi swastika, engaged in racist and anti-Semitic demonstrations and committed brutal and deadly violence against peaceful Americans.”

The House resolution vote had good people on both sides. But all the bad people were on the Republican side.

Some conservative attacks on the resolution have revealed the hollow bad faith of their objections. Ben Shapiro calls it a “sham resolution constructed to shield an open anti-Semite.” Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel complains that it mentioned the Nazi rally in Charlottesville:

So just to be clear: A Somali-American Democrat engages in repeated anti-Semitism, and Democrats pass a resolution that condemns "white supremacists" (and gets in a reference to Charlottesville).

— Kimberley Strassel (@KimStrassel) March 7, 2019

The resolution did not “shield” Omar. It specifically cited the form of anti-Semitism she employed, even repeating her exact terms and specifically defining them as a kind of anti-Semitism. This was a step several presidential candidates like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren refused to take. Both Warren and Sanders released statements portraying Omar as having been smeared as an anti-Semite for her innocent criticisms of Israel. The House resolution plainly contradicted that stance.

Now, what about the fact that the resolution also highlighted other kinds of bigotry? That does not undermine its renunciation of Omar’s anti-Semitic remark. It does reveal a lot about where her right-wing critics are coming from, though.

Omar’s allies kept deflecting the question of her anti-Semitism to the worse bigotry on the right. Bringing up the other side’s flaws is inadequate as a substitute for addressing your own. But it’s fine if you do it in addition to addressing your own.

And it is actually true that the Republican party is far more bigoted, in far more ways, and that Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes is hardly the gravest crisis of racism in the United States. It’s notable that the formal denunciation of anti-Islamic bigotry, a widespread and serious phenomenon that George W. Bush tried to halt but which has been stoked by Donald Trump, has never passed Congress before last night. Republicans blocked such an effort in 2016.

Republicans may be offended that the resolution mentions a Nazi rally. But the fact that Trump is the first president to inspire Nazis to rally to his side is hardly irrelevant to the issue of bigotry. And their objection to its inclusion highlights the bad faith of their whole effort. Their real goal is not to oppose dual loyalty smears. It’s to focus single-mindedly on this one form of bigotry as a way of excusing the bigotry on their own side.

This was not a fight over whether Democrats are as compromised by bigotry as the Republicans. It was a fight over how much higher its standards would remain. The answer is: much higher.

When the American Conservative Union asked if I wanted to address CPAC this year, of course I said yes. Then came several weeks of discussion as to what the subject of my speech should be. This is the biggest event of its kind in the nation, with more than 200 speakers and this year in excess of 10,000 attendees, more than half under the age of 25, so I am not envious of the job Matt Schlapp and Dan Schneider have to do to pull off such a feat. (Especially when your speakers include the president and the vice president and all the security that entails).

The topic we eventually settled on was the threat Russia poses to America, a subject I am always happy to address given my family history. With parents who suffered under a Stalinist dictatorship and a father who escaped from a Communist political prison, providing a reality-check on the menace posed by a Russia still run by a KGB colonel comes easy.

However, on the day, eight minutes into my speech I decided I needed to change tack. Russia is a threat, but it is not the Soviet Union. Instead I felt compelled to talk about the real threat we face as the free-est nation on God’s Earth: the rise of socialism within our borders.

My speech was on the morning of the first day of CPAC, and the remarkable thing was, as the next three days unfolded, my decision to ad lib on that specific topic was echoed again and again—without any “central planning” from the organizers—by speaker after speaker. From Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA, to Mr. Brexit, Nigel Farage, to Mark Levin, and finally the vice president and President Trump himself. (If you missed the president’s barnburner, do yourself a favor and watch it. And bookmark the link so you can return to it when you feel like the radical crazies are winning and you need a laugh).

All of us ended up reflecting on the fact that, like a zombie that just will not die, Karl Marx’s ideology of destruction is back, and this time not as an external threat held to by a nation that wants to destroy or enslave us, but in the guise of an erstwhile mainstream American party that has been taken over by extremists.

Yet those who have surrendered to the deadly utopianism seem to be suffering from a psychosis of some kind. Democrats by and large deny they are socialists, so much so that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stood to clap during the president’s State of the Union as he pledged that America will never be a socialist nation. This at the same time that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) announced her “New Green Deal,” a centralization of power designed to destroy the free-market completely. No gasoline engines. No air travel. All buildings demolished and then rebuilt to a politically correct code. Not to mention the rationing, or eventually phasing out of red meat so we can get a grip on bovine flatulence. (If you want to see the original green scam plan Ocasio-Cortez’s office tried to deep-six, you can find it here.)

If patriotic Americans ever capitulated and the plan were implemented it would give more power to the federal government than any Communist state ever had. Yes, there may have been breadlines in Moscow, Prague, and Warsaw, but they never banned meat or automobiles.

The fact is, the Democratic Party is in big trouble. Its old white leadership thought they could allow the fringe types into the club and control them, dilute their extremism. They are failing. This burgeoning internal civil war is clearest not when it comes to new disagreements but rather, in confronting old skeletons.

The Left has always had a default setting that was anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish. Just look at the history of the crypto-anti-Semitic BDS movement and where it was born. But in the past few weeks, with blatant anti-Semites like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib actually winning seats in Congress as Democrats, we have a blatant institutionalization of Jew-hatred at the highest levels of the Democratic Party. Pelosi said she would deal with Omar’s public statements of hate. Then she removed Omar’s name from the censure motion and then it was delayed. Next it was watered down even more by focusing on all “hatred,” not the specific and vile comments from the freshman congresswoman. Now, with Pelosi storming out of the latest meeting on the measure, it looks as if the party has a full-fledged revolt on its hands.

America’s Founders deliberately built our federal system in a way so as to keep it permanently hobbled in some respects. The checks and balances and the separation of powers were designed to effect gridlock, not obviate it, and were meant to prevent a domestic “King George scenario.” But did they ever envisage a day when one of our two parties would embrace the principles of a totalitarian policy? Note every declared frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination has endorsed AOC’s green socialist plan. With a worldview informed in its totality by the tenets of Judeo-Christian civilization, could they have ever imagined institutionalized hatred of half our heritage being normalized?

The Democrats are in trouble. The question remains, how much damage will they do to our Republic and our friends and allies before their own internal civil war leads to the expulsion of the extremists from our political culture?

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) claimed the media was treating Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) badly for making several anti semitic comments. Clyburn defended Omar in an interview with The Hill this week. In fact, Clyburn said that Omar’s experience as a refugee was more empirical to the experiences of holocaust survivors.

“I’m serious about that. There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her,” Clyburn told The Hill. “I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”

Pelosi Caves

On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) caved in to the pressure. Pelosi said she didn’t believe the tweets were “intentionally anti-Semitic,” and that the House should add to the House resolution to condemn anti semitism. Additionally, Pelosi said she would add condemnation for any bias against blacks and Muslims to the resolution.

In a video on twitter, Omar addressed death threats she had received. “I know that as long as I breathe that I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible,” she said.

“I don’t ever want you to worry about me. I am fine. I know what my mission is. I know what my purpose is. I know that as long as I breathe that I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible” @IlhanMN is strong but we will NOT be silent #StandWithIlhan pic.twitter.com/x2oXdN4w5N

Watch: The Dems Resolution Against Anti-Semitism Is A Total Disaster

The Democrats started this resolution nonsense to demonstrate they were actually doing something about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic remarks.

But they bought their own trouble when they had an internal revolt from folks who refused to condemn her, including most of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates who have weighed in so far.

Now the Democrats have finalized the resolution.

And it’s as bad as you would imagine, in terms of meaningless drivel.

Here’s a link to the full resolution.

Warning: you can’t get those three minutes back again, as Twitchy notes.

They literally mention what she’s done, list a lot of other incidents but can’t seem to put her name in there anywhere.

But they do get in the evil centrists.

On the other hand, they did get the Charleston church shooting in there, which, while horrible, didn’t have to do with anti-Semitism.

Nor did they specifically call out leftist anti-Semitism which is a growing and troubling trend, not just in Congress, but particularly on college campuses. And the failure to specifically condemn Omar gives further wind to anti-Semitism.

Let’s look at what the GOP did with Rep. Steve King (R-NY).

They condemned him specifically and his alleged remarks. They also removed him from any Committee assignments.

But Democrats not only are refusing to condemn Omar, but leaving her on the critically important House Foreign Affairs Committee where her biases can have significant effect.

And if she really doesn’t understand the weight of her words, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed, or needs to “grow and change” as Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) argued, why is she on such an important committee?

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) went after former President Barack Obama in an interview released on Friday in which she suggested the former commander-in-chief got “away with murder” because of his political savvy.

The freshman representative made her remarks to Politico for an extensive profile on Omar and her congressional neighbor, Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN).

Speaking about her background and her evolution in politics, Omar bashed Obama while commenting that the Democratic Party has become more interested in the status quo than in progressive values.

From the Politico report:

Omar was fed up—not so much with Trumpism, or with politics in general, as with the Democratic Party.

As she saw it, the party ostensibly committed to progressive values had become complicit in perpetuating the status quo. Omar says the “hope and change” offered by Barack Obama was a mirage. Recalling the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar says. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

Omar’s comments come amid a firestorm over her repeated criticisms of Israel. Democrats have been under pressure lately to condemn Omar for her use of controversial tropes that have been deemed anti-Semitic by critics. This ended up sparking a dispute among Omar’s colleagues over how to approach a congressional resolution against hatred and discrimination without implicitly calling out Omar.

UPDATE –– 5:08 pm ET: Omar posted audio of her remarks this afternoon and said her words were distorted.

Exhibit A of how reporters distort words.

I’m an Obama fan! I was saying how Trump is different from Obama, and why we should focus on policy not politics.

The neo-Nazi Democrats have chosen to be led by the worst of the worst racists and bigots. How laughable that left-wing goons dare call the most pro-Jewish, pro-Israel President “antisemitic.” The Democrat national socialist party have taken a page from the German national socialist party (Nazis).

Linda Sarsour Explains How She Influenced Democratic Leadership To Scrap Original Anti-Semitism Resolution

Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour explained Friday how she and other left-wing organizers influenced the final language of the “anti-hate” resolution that passed the House Thursday night.

The resolution, initially launched as a rebuke exclusively against anti-Semitism following remarks made by Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, was later broadened to include all forms of bigotry. Sarsour in her video took credit for convincing House Democratic leadership for “expanding the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry.” (RELATED: Democratic Rebuke Against Anti-Semitism Becomes Resolution Against Everything Else)

The Women’s March co-founder attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last Tuesday for initially allowing the anti-Semitism resolution, saying in a Facebook post, “Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men. God forbid the men are upset – no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos.”

Democrats argued with one another last Wednesday over the resolution’s language. Washington Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal, the progressive caucus’s leader, did not want Omar’s name in the resolution, while a number of Jewish members reportedly pushed to include it. Ultimately, the resolution omitted Omar’s name.

According to Sarsour on Friday, she and her fellow organizers worked behind the scenes to change the original intent of the non-binding resolution by the end of the week. (RELATED: Democrat Anti-Hate Resolution Passes House)

“Friends, our supporters, you know the Women’s March we’re going through some rough times and if you know anything about this past week, I’m going to give you some ideas of what we did this week. So, many of you know that our sister Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was under attack,” Sarsour said.

She continued, “And you know being able to mobilize progressive leaders across the country to sign on to a letter to organize a press conference in support of Ilhan Omar to call on the Democratic leadership to actually expand the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry because that’s the kind of movement we’re apart of.”

“The women’s march is a movement that unequivocally rejects all forms of racism and anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia and that’s what we called on the Democratic leadership to do — that in our lifetime we made history with a resolution that is going to be in the public record for life,” Sarsour added.

When Ilhan Omar complains about foreign influence on U.S. decision-making, she really only complains about one country.

The Wiki Daily

Published  1 month ago

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is scheduled to raise money in March with the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) only a week after she used an anti-Semitic trope to claim Israel has paid for GOP support.

Omar will be the keynote speaker at CAIR’s 4th Annual Valley Banquet on March 23 to discuss advancing justice and empowering Muslims, according to the organization’s invitation. Single tickets start at $55 per person and a table can cost upwards of $500.

Hassan Shibly, the chief executive director for CAIR-Florida, will also be speaking at the event. Shibly has emphatically stated that Hezbollah and Hamas are not terrorist organizations, reported Jordan Schachtel at Conservative Review.

Hussam Ayloush, the chief executive director for CAIR-LA, who is hosting the event, compared the state of Israel to the Islamic State during a speech in April. Shibley has repeatedly echoed those sentiments and spread propaganda describing U.S. armed forces as radical terrorists.

CAIR is a notable pro-Palestinian organization with ties to Islamic terror groups. The U.S. Department of Justice listed CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in funding millions of dollars to the terrorist organization Hamas. Additionally, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) named CAIR a terrorist organization along with al-Qaeda and ISIS in 2014.

Omar faced massive backlash after she stated on Feb. 10 that Republicans’ support for Israel is bought by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The anti-Semitic comments received swift condemnation from congressional members on both sides of the aisle, including the Democratic leadership and the White House.

After receiving widespread criticism, Omar apologized for using anti-Semitic language but maintained her position on “the problematic role of lobbyists in politics, whether it be AIPAC, the [National Rifle Association] or the fossil fuel industry.” (RELATED: Top Democrat Jerry Nadler Slams Ilhan Omar Over Comments About Jews)

Omar’s office did not return The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment and clarification on whether raising money for CAIR exacerbates the “problematic role of lobbyists in politics” and, if not, the difference between fundraising for CAIR and AIPAC.

Omar has been in office less than two months and is surrounded by a number of controversies. The freshman congresswoman defended anti-Israeli statements, such as ones invoking Allah to expose Israel’s “evil doings,” and she has come out in favor of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish the nation-state of Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

The Minnesota congresswoman is also on record implying Israel is not a democracy and gave an interview to a host that referred to Israel as the “Jewish ISIS.”

Radical Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has recently been under fire for her recent anti-Semitic comments.

At first, it seemed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic party was going to condemn Omar. However, now they seem to be backtracking.

In a recent interview, Pelosi stated that she doesn’t think that Omar’s comments were “intentionally anti-Semitic.”

NEW Trump 2020 Black Hat – Yours Free!

Check out what the National Review reported:

Pelosi’s comment, which was reported by Politico, came hours after House Democrats sparred in a closed-door meeting over a resolution condemning religious bigotry intended at least partially in response to Omar’s comments. A number of Omar’s fellow progressives lashed out at Pelosi and suggested their older colleagues were making a politically costly mistake by rebuking Omar.

“We’ve individually and collectively already responded to the fact that we oppose all ‘-isms’ that do not treat people in this country fairly and justly,” Representative Bonnie Watson-Coleman (D., N.J.) said during the meeting, according to the Washington Post. “To continue to engage in this discussion is simply an opportunity to give both the media and Republicans distractions from our agenda. We’ve got important work to do.”

It’s sad to see how hard it is for the Democrats to agree that anti-Semitism is bad and should be condemned.

Pelosi seems to care more about the “politics” of the situation than Omar’s anti-Semitic comments which is why she is failing to condemn the congress woman.

Many people think that Pelosi is afraid to disagree with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is also defending Omar because she doesn’t want to create a divide in the party.

Just weeks ago, Omar was under fire for claiming that the only reason the United States is allies with Israel is because of the money.

Check out what the National Review reported:

Omar, who has previously been accused of anti-Semitism by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle for attributing U.S. support for Israel to the “Benjamin’s,” once again inflamed tensions last week by suggesting that accusations of anti-Semitism, including from her “Jewish colleagues,” are intended to chill debate over the alliance.

“What I’m fearful of — because [Representative] Rashida [Tlaib] and I are Muslim — that a lot of our Jewish colleagues, a lot of our constituents, a lot of our allies, go to thinking that everything we say about Israel to be anti-Semitic because we are Muslim,” said Omar, speaking at a progressive town-hall event in Washington, D.C. alongside Representative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.).

“So for me, I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” she later added.

Not only is Omar failing to apologize for her anti-Semitism, but she is now claiming to be the victim.

Instead of saying sorry for her anti-Semitic comments, the Democratic congresswoman is using this opportunity to attack President Trump for his “anti-Muslim” agenda.

Talk about a deflection!

Nancy Pelosi makes excuses for Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism: “She may need to explain that she did not, it’s up to her to explain. But I do not believe that she understood the full weight of the words.”

So either she’s too stupid to understand what she was saying, or too stupid to realize that we Americans don’t agree with the common Islamic sentiment regarding Jews and Christians; ie, off with their heads….

Either way, if she is indeed this stupid and bigoted, she has absolutely no place in our government!

I can say this: I don’t think the innocent girl vibe is working for me. If you are Muslim, you hate Jews and Christians. It’s in the Quran. They are taught these things from an early age, it’s not like “welp, I’ve become a Congressman, so I guess I can’t think that way any more…” The silent invasion has already begun.

Quran (2:65-66): “Christians and Jews must believe what Allah has revealed to Muhammad or Allah will disfigure their faces or turn them into apes, as he did the Sabbath-breakers.”

Quran (5:51): “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”

Quran (9:30): “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

The question I am asking myself is this: why are Democrats so apologetic about Islam? Why are they supporting this ideology that oppresses women, Jews, and Christians? In the age of Social Justice Warriors, where is the justice for the women in our own back yards who have been acid attacked, had their genitals mutilated, who have been victims of an honor killing?

Why protect this ideology. It is obvious to me and everyone else with a brain that this stuff just doesn’t mix well in our Western society.

Ilhan Omar’s supposedly anti-Semitic comments on the Israel lobby have thrust the Muslim congresswoman into the spotlight recently, dividing the party and forcing a vote on a resolution that sort-of condemned her statements.

With the did-she, didn’t-she anti-Semitism controversy still playing out, Omar turned on former President Barack Obama, who, to many in her party, is above criticism. The Minnesota lawmaker told Politico that Obama stood for the status quo, and not for any real “hope and change.”

Best line from Ilhan Omar: “We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.” https://t.co/nSubGpx5AW

— Rania Khalek (@RaniaKhalek) March 8, 2019

From the “caging of kids” at the US-Mexico border to the “droning of countries around the world,” Omar argued that the Democratic Party leader’s policies were no better, morally speaking, from the policies of the current administration.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar said. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

Ilhan Omar is the real deal. She saw through the mirage of the Obama years and understands US imperialism.

There's a reason @AOC — who stays silent on Palestine and echoes the status quo on Venezuela — gets fawning media coverage while @IlhanMN is smearedhttps://t.co/Xnyh41cOz7pic.twitter.com/Rtfdcgyqa1

While the left castigated Trump for separating illegal immigrant children from their families at the border last year, the Obama administration also isolated and detained children while their parents’ court cases were being processed. Obama also stepped up the US targeted killing campaign, using drones to strike suspected terrorists in Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and Omar’s native Somalia. Around 2,500 people were killed in theses strikes, up to 800 of them civilians, according to conflicting figures from the US Government and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

Politico described Omar as part of an “insurgent activist wing swallowing up the party’s establishment.” The election of Trump certainly galvanized this wing, driving the party leftwards and propelling self-declared socialists like Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez (D-New York) to ‘household name’ status.

Seemingly emboldened by the recent controversy, Omar’s agitation has widened the divide between the suit-and-tie Democrat establishment – exemplified by Rep. Juan Vargas’ warning that any criticism of Israel is “unacceptable” – and this rising activist wing.

Omar herself wasn’t always as disruptive, though. As a Minnesota State Representative, Omar bid a fond farewell to Obama before Trump’s inauguration in 2017, calling him a “source of inspiration, hope and change.”

HSINO… That is Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — our “House Speaker In Name Only,” an aging figurehead limping towards extinction.

Late last month, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared herself “the boss” — and Thursday’s disgraceful House vote condemning All the Hates proved that sentiment 100 percent true.

Don’t be fooled by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MD); she is not “stepping on rakes” or “accidentally” revealing her antisemitism. This is a coordinated strategy on the part of her and her allies to legitimize antisemitism, to normalize bigoted stereotypes about money-grubbing and dual loyalties that go above and beyond honest criticism of Israel.

That’s the play here, that is what is at stake, and because she’s lost control of the House and her caucus to the Ocasio-Crazies, Pelosi is helpless to stop it.

In fact, Pelosi has become Ocasio-Crazy’s puppet, her mouthpiece… “I do not believe she understood the full weight of the words,” Pelosi told reporters Thursday to explain why she does not believe Omar should apologize or lose her consequential seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

“I feel confident that her words were not based on any antisemitic attitude. But that she didn’t have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people where these words have a history and a cultural impact that might have been unknown to her,” the ventriloquist dummy added without blinking.

This week marked the third time in two months Omar went there, went to a place we have not seen a mainstream figure go since Father Coughlin in the 1930s. And with Ocasio-Crazy out there launching a ridiculous (and condescending) defense of Omar (it’s a learning process) and refusing to back a House resolution that condemns antisemitism alone (think about that), Pelosi had no choice but to back down, to come up with this utterly meaningless All the Hates resolution that Omar was perfectly comfortable voting for.

And why wouldn’t she vote yea? The resolution was not only a triumph for Omar and her wild-eyed ilk over Pelosi, it proved her strategy is working — that you can now hurl these bigoted smears without fear of condemnation.

This is how much of a shell Pelosi is now: she no longer has the influence to convince her caucus to support a standalone resolution against antisemitism; she no longer has the authority to stop Omar from her antisemitic quest to move the Overton window, she is powerless against Omar’s launching of one rhetorical fire bomb after another directly into the middle of Pelosi’s agenda for the 116th Congress.

And let’s be honest, going back to its Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow days, the Democrat Party has always been a hotbed of antisemitism — a party that has tolerated and even feted Louis Farrakhan for decades, that embraces Rev. Al Sharpton, a Party that seems to have grown tired of having to hide its antisemitism and just wants to be free.

A video that was posted on Twitter on Tuesday shows Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) telling a room of supporters, in a very provocative manner, not to worry about her and pledging, “I know what my mission is. I know what my purpose is. I know that as long as I breathe that I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible.”

The video was posted by Rasha Mubarak, president of the Young Democrats of Orange County (Florida) and has already gotten over one million views. Mubarak never posted the context of the video, but the posting is right in the middle of a firestorm about Omar’s questioning the loyalty of Jewish-American supporters of Israel. Can you imagine a Jewish Congressman questioning the loyalty of Omar? It would be a career ender for the Jewish Congressman.

“I don’t ever want you to worry about me. I am fine. I know what my mission is. I know what my purpose is. I know that as long as I breathe that I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible” @IlhanMN is strong but we will NOT be silent #StandWithIlhan pic.twitter.com/x2oXdN4w5N

The Democrats let it be known the other day that a resolution against anti-Semitism was being put together, mainly because of complaints brought in about the hateful rhetoric of Omar against Israel and Jewish-American supporters of Israel. That resolution has now been postponed, more-than-likely because Nancy Pelosi cannot control the progressive freshman in her party who are defending Omar’s bigotry.

Omar was praised by the other kook freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who referred to the president as a MF’er in front of supporters, when she retweeted the video with the comment, “I am so honored to serve with @IlhanMN, an incredible courageous woman. Every time I worry about her and the ugly attacks, I remember what she said to me two months ago: “I survived war, I can survive this.”

After days of infighting and a near-rebellion by Democratic rank-and-file members, the House on Thursday passed a bipartisan resolution that indirectly condemned Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar's 'anti-Semitic' and 'pernicious' comments -- without mentioning her by name.

The Federalist

Published  1 month ago

According to Rep. James Clyburn's logic, it's OK to hate Jews if you rank higher than them on the pyramid of victimhood.

Democratic Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) defended his colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) by reasoning that she is higher than Jews on the pyramid of intersectionality. In an interview with The Hill on Wednesday, Clyburn trivialized Holocaust survivors when he implied that Omar’s time in a Kenyan refugee camp outweighed the experiences of Jews.

Her experience, Clyburn argued, is much more empirical — and powerful — than that of people who are generations removed from the Holocaust, Japanese internment camps during World War II and the other violent episodes that have marked history.

“I’m serious about that. There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her,” Clyburn said. “I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”

Clyburn is the third-highest ranking Democrat in the House, who has shared a stage with the notorious anti-semite Louis Farrakhan. According to Clyburn’s logic, it’s OK to hate Jews if you rank higher than them on the hierarchy of victimhood. Omar is a Muslim woman who was born in Somalia and had to flee violence in her country, so Democrats believe her hate speech should be excused, while Holocaust survivors should sit quiet.

Clyburn’s comments come during a fragmented week for Democrats, who failed to pass a resolution condemning anti-Semitism in the wake of Omar’s repeated anti-Semitic slurs. Clyburn, a prominent member of the Congressional Black Caucus, said he rejected the idea that the proposed resolution would single Omar out for condemnation.

“She won’t be targeted. We’re going to target those people who had her picture on the Twin Towers,” Clyburn said. “This resolution is going to be inclusive; it’s going to be expansive; and I might just try to add something to deal with that billboard that’s up in Pennsylvania this morning calling John Lewis and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus racists.”

As Washington Free Beacon writer Alex Griswold pointed out, it’s contradictory to say the resolution is “expansive” and not intended to go after Omar specifically, but to also say it’s going to “target” certain groups.

Pro-tip: it sort of gives the game away to opt for a broad "all hate matters" resolution that doesn't target Omar, and then target *other* individuals in the resolution. pic.twitter.com/Z2i7W1cFaJ

House Democrats blew up at each other Wednesday over intra-party attacks and a proposed resolution viewed as a rebuke to Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D., Minn.) latest anti-Semitic remarks, exposing a divide in the caucus.

After news broke of Democrats planning to vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism in response to Omar, and later adding language condemning anti-Muslim bias as well, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) said there may be no vote on one at all. Adding to the embarrassment for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and her members is the resolution would be the second congressional maneuver made in as many months to indirectly respond to Omar's anti-Semitic statements.

At a closed-door meeting reported on by the Washington Post, nerves and emotions were raw following party leadership's reaction to Omar's latest broadside: questioning the political influence in the United States that she says forces "allegiance to a foreign country." This came after her remarks last month, where she tweeted "it's all about the Benjamins" for pro-Israel politicians, suggesting they were paid off by Jewish lobbyists. She apologized for the latter remarks "unequivocally."

While Omar has defended her most recent comments, she has been criticized by some members of her own party, including House Foreign Affairs Committee chair Eliot Engel (D., N.Y.), who said she had invoked a "vile anti-Semitic slur." Rep. Juan Vargas (D., Calif.) was blistered by fellow Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) after tweeting his displeasure with Omar for her questioning of the U.S.-Israel alliance.

"She could have come down the hall and asked me what my opinion is. That would have been fine," Vargas said of Ocasio-Cortez's response on Twitter. "We have a very different opinion here, I believe. To question someone’s loyalty because they’re Jewish, I think, is terrible. It’s something that we shouldn’t question at all."

The Post reported that at one point during the meeting, Pelosi ally Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) pleaded: "Everyone stop tweeting!"

Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D., Wash.) admonished her colleagues to iron out their differences in private, for fear of letting Republicans divide them.

Some members, like Congressional Black Caucus member Cedric Richmond (D., La.), were angry Omar was being singled out at all.

"I think there’s a big rise in anti-Semitism and racism, and that’s a bigger conversation we need to be having," Richmond said. "But it starts at 1600 Pennsylvania. It doesn’t start with one member out of 435 members of Congress."

CBC chair Karen Bass (D., Calif.) said it was "inappropriate to just focus on one person," according to the Hill.

"We need to have equity in our outrage," said Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.), calling the matter a "distraction."

Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D., N.J.) didn't know why Democrats were putting forth a resolution in the first place.

"We’ve individually and collectively already responded to the fact that we oppose all ‘-isms’ that do not treat people in this country fairly and justly," she said. "To continue to engage in this discussion is simply an opportunity to give both the media and Republicans distractions from our agenda. We’ve got important work to do."

Pelosi criticized the media and said the Omar issue would be resolved, according to the Post.

"I think you make more of it than there is . . . the press loves to foment unease in the Democratic Party but we are very united" about the party agenda, she said.

"If you say the bacon is not crispy enough, they'll have an article about this unrest and unease in the Democratic Party," Pelosi said, according to the Hill.

Democratic presidential candidates Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Wednesday condemned anti-Semitism along with House Democratic leadership who planned to vote on a resolution rebuking Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) over her recent comments about the influence of pro-Israel lobbying groups.

The big picture: Omar's remarks, characterized as anti-Semitic, have triggered a clash between House Democratic leaders and rank-and-file lawmakers who believe the Minnesota freshman was unfairly singled out. The internal backlash forced leadership to postpone Wednesday's vote, as the language of the resolution — which does not specifically reference Omar — would likely be broadened to reject other forms of bigotry, including Islamophobia.

What they’re saying:

"Anti-Semitism is a hateful and dangerous ideology which must be vigorously opposed in the United States and around the world. We must not, however, equate anti-Semitism with legitimate criticism of the right-wing, Netanyahu government in Israel. Rather, we must develop an even-handed Middle East policy which brings Israelis and Palestinians together for lasting peace."

"We all have a responsibility to speak out against anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, racism, and all forms of hatred and bigotry, especially as we see a spike in hate crimes in America. But like some of my colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus, I am concerned that the spotlight being put on Congresswoman Omar may put her at risk. We should be having a sound, respectful discussion about policy. You can both support Israel and be loyal to our country. I also believe there is a difference between criticism of policy or political leaders, and anti-Semitism. At the end of the day, we need a two-state solution and a commitment to peace, human rights, and democracy by all leaders in the region ― and a commitment by our country to help achieve that."

"We have a moral duty to combat hateful ideologies in our country and around the world — and that included both anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. In a democracy, we can and should have an open, respectful debate about the Middle East that focuses on policy. Branding criticism of Israel as automatically anti-Semitic has a chilling effect on our public discourse and makes it harder to achieve a peaceful solution between Israelis and Palestinians. Threats of violence — like those made against Rep. Omar — are never acceptable."

American Jews, including prominent figures like Naomi Klein, have signed an open letter in support of Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

The letter states that she has been “falsely accused of antisemitism” and that there was nothing anti-Semitic about calling out the “noxious” role of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in American politics.

It went on to say that “The pro-Israel lobby has played an outsized role in producing nearly unanimous congressional support for Israel”, and slammed AIPAC and other lobby groups including the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the fossil fuel lobby for its “anti-democratic” legislative influence on US politics.

The letter finished by saying “We thank Ilhan Omar for having the bravery to shake up the congressional taboo against criticizing Israel. As Jews with a long tradition of social justice and anti-racism, AIPAC does not represent us.” and called on other Jews to sign the letter.

Omar has faced huge backlash after calling out AIPAC, including facing accusations of anti-Semitism from both Democrats and Republicans, floor action against her by Nancy Pelosi, and disturbing posters at a Republican event, linking her to the 9/11 attacks.

The charge of anti-Semitism comes after Omar said that the Republican Party’s threats against her and Palestinian-American congresswoman Rashida Tlaib for criticising Israel was “all about the Benjamins, baby!” in reference to money allegedly paid to the party and its members to support Tel Aviv.

When she was asked to clarify who is paying members, she cited AIPAC, which has previously boasted about its financial influence in US politics.

Fireworks: House Dems Have 'Full-Scale Brawl' Over Resolution That Indirectly Rebukes Ilhan Omar's Reported Anti-Semitism - Matt Vespa: Once again Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has found herself entangled .03/06/2019 13:20:51PM EST.

The Daily Beast

Published  1 month ago

House Democrats spent Wednesday scrambling to put to bed a debate about anti-Semitism that no one wants after advancing a symbolic resolution condemning it that pleased no one.

The resolution, as it was initially conceived in the hours after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) made a second round of anti-Israel comments last week, would condemn anti-Semitism—a second public rebuke of the freshman lawmaker who has been in office less than 60 days.

But by midweek, faced with a backlash inside the Democratic Caucus, leaders appeared to change course, asking the House Foreign Affairs Committee to draft a resolution that rebuked “all hate.”

“We’ll see what the committee comes up with, I’m a big believer in the committee system this is their jurisdiction, they have an array of concerns, priorities they are addressing,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters, adding that the resolution was not targeted at Omar’s comments.

Members involved in crafting the resolution have already been hit with requests from the offices of Democratic lawmakers for specific groups to be included in the resolution. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who is Hindu, reached out to top Democrats to ask that Hindus be specifically mentioned in any resolution condemning religious prejudice, sources said. Other members have suggested Catholics, Muslims, and all forms of racism should be added, too.

Asked if the resolution would be diluted as a result of the inclusion of so many groups, Pelosi replied, “What’s too broad about fighting hatred wherever it exists?”

Though top Democrats have condemned Omar’s latest comments—in which she implied that lawmakers who support Israel have an “allegiance to a foreign country”—most members bristled at the idea of publicly reprimanding her through a resolution, even if it did not mention her by name.

By Wednesday afternoon, several had taken to blaming the media for covering Omar’s remarks, claiming that racist and anti-Semitic actions and language from Republicans were being ignored.

“We have to do better across the board,” said Rep. Max Rose, a New York Democrat who has condemned Omar’s comments in the past. “We also have to acknowledge the incredible hypocrisy you all are showing – that I did not see you guys trailing [Rep. Kevin] McCarthy—over and over and over again, there has been an unequal treatment.”

The House voted last month to approve a symbolic resolution condemning anti-Semitism, which was pushed by Republicans after Omar was criticized in February for suggesting lawmakers had been bought by the Israel lobby. That measure, which passed overwhelmingly, only contributed to skepticism from some Democrats over the ongoing debate.

“We’ve already voted on it,” said Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY). “Whatever we do, it’s going to look like we’re responding specifically to her, and to AIPAC,” he said, referring to the pro-Israel lobbying group

Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) conceded that some members felt Omar had been singled out for her comments and hinted the resolution might be more partisan than originally expected.

“Of all hate, all hate, all hate, all hate. Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, all that stuff,” Clyburn said, when asked whether the president’s rhetoric would be addressed in the legislation.

“We all know what the atmosphere in this country is right now, we have an occupant down at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue that is poisoning atmosphere of this country when it comes to minorities,” he said. “If are a descendant of someone who came from the s-hole country, you pissed off about a lot of the stuff right about now and I happen to be the descendant of one of those groups.”

Citing the “caging of kids” at the Mexican border coupled with the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch — she argued that he wasn’t much different from President Trump.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” the freshman firebrand told Politico Magazine.

“His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar said.

“And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

According to the NY Post, her explosive comments about a man lionized by Democrats were only the latest in a series of incendiary statements that have put the national spotlight on Omar, a Somali-American Muslim who spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya after her family fled the violence in their homeland.

In February, her second month in office, Omar responded to a tweet about House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy’s threats to punish her and another congresswoman for criticizing Israel.

“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” she tweeted, a line from a Puff Daddy song about $100 bills.

many said Omar was perpetuating a hateful trope about Jewish Americans and money, and following recent news of her latest antisemitic rant on twitter she is positioning herself for a one and done type of tenure.

The Right Scoop

One Democrat today bent over so far backward to defend Ilhan Omar from the accusation of anti-Semitism that he insulted Jews whose family members were in the Holocaust.

THE HILL – Clyburn came to Omar’s defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States.

Her experience, Clyburn argued, is much more empirical — and powerful — than that of people who are generations removed from the Holocaust, Japanese internment camps during World War II and the other violent episodes that have marked history.

“I’m serious about that. There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her,” Clyburn said. “I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”

What has that got to do with anything?

The point isn’t that Omar suffered in her life, but rather that she keeps spewing anti-Semitism. Having to flee violence in Somalia and spending time in a refugee camp has nothing to do with the fact that she’s an anti-Semite.

But instead of sticking to the point, Clyburn has to insult millions of Jews whose parents died in the Holocaust by suggesting that Omar’s struggles are more meaningful than theirs. How ridiculous.

Why can’t the Democrat Party just call out anti-Semitism in its own ranks like it should? Because there’s more anti-Semitism in their party than they are willing to admit and if they took it on, it’d destroy the party.

Nikki Haley called out Clyburn for his remarks a short while ago:

So very disappointed in Mr. Clyburn’s comments. Many of us have felt pain as a minority. All groups have painful pasts. Please don’t suddenly make one minority group’s pain more justified or personal than another’s. #SouthCarolinaDoesNotThinkThisWay https://t.co/3ym4Sj1foX

“Friends, our supporters, you know the Women’s March we’re going through some rough times and if you know anything about this past week, I’m going to give you some ideas of what we did this week. So, many of you know that our sister Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was under attack,” Sarsour said.

She continued, “And you know being able to mobilize progressive leaders across the country to sign on to a letter to organize a press conference in support of Ilhan Omar to call on the Democratic leadership to actually expand the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry because that’s the kind of movement we’re apart of.”

“The women’s march is a movement that unequivocally rejects all forms of racism and anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia and that’s what we called on the Democratic leadership to do — that in our lifetime we made history with a resolution that is going to be in the public record for life,” Sarsour added.

'I do not believe she understood the full weight of her words'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) defended Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from charges that she intended to make anti-Semitic remarks, and claimed that the anti-hate resolution in the House of Representatives was not about Omar.

Pelosi made the statements to the media on Thursday, just ahead of the vote for the resolution.

"I don't think that um, the congresswoman perhaps appreciated the full weight of how it was heard by other people, although I don't believe it was intended in an anti-Semitic way," she explained.

"But the fact is if that's how it was interpreted, we have to remove all doubt, as we have done over and over again."

Pelosi said she spoke to Omar about the anti-Semitic comments she made and how the Democrats were going to vote on a resolution against anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred.

"Something that is one resolution, addressing these forms of hatred, not mentioning her name because it's not about her," she explained. "It's about these forms of hatred."

Pelosi would not say whether Omar should apologize, and said it was up to her.

"I do not believe she understood the full weight of her words," she added.

"When you cross that threshold into Congress," she continued, "your words weigh much more than when you're shouting at somebody outside, and I feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-Semitic attitude, but that she didn't have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people where these words have a history and a cultural impact that may have been unknown to her."

Here's the video of Pelosi's comments:

The resolution was passed overwhelmingly on Thursday with a vote of 407 to 23.

As Democrats line up to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar and come up with her excuses for her anti-Semitism, House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., tried to minimize her comments by arguing that she escaped violence in Somalia, so her experience was "more personal" than Jews who merely had parents survive the Holocaust.

The Hill reports, "Clyburn came to Omar’s defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States."

The article quotes Clyburn as saying, “There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her ... I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”

This has to be one of the more bizarre efforts to protect somebody who has repeatedly peddled the worst anti-Semitic tropes, despite multiple interventions by people explaining exactly why her words were offensive. The implication is that because Omar fled Somalia she gets a free pass to target another religious minority.

It also in itself is deeply offensive. Remembering the Holocaust, and the oft repeated phrase "Never Again," is about making sure we're proactive about combating anti-Semitism before it manifests in ways that lead to mass slaughter.

Not to mention, it isn't as if anti-Semitism is an abstract problem. Hate crimes against Jews are on the rise. And in every year since statistics have been compiled since the 1990s, more anti-religious hate crimes have been committed against Jews than any other religious group, even though they make up only 2 percent of the population.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, Minnesota Democrat, has an ally of a new stripe in the furor over her use of anti-Semitic tropes regarding Israel and its American supporters — David Duke.

In a Thursday podcast at his site, the former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard spoke out strongly in favor of the Muslim Congresswoman who has accused Jewish lawmakers of dual loyalty, attributed support for Israel to foreign money, and said Israel has “hypnotized” the world.

“By defiance to Z.O.G. Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” Mr. Duke wrote on his site, using the acronym for “Zionist Occupation Government,” a term anti-Semites use to refer to the U.S. government as secretly controlled by Jews.

Mr. Duke and co-podcaster Eric Striker, according to the site, “heaped praise on Ilhan Omar (D-New Somalia) for being the one person in Congress willing to notice AIPAC and the “dual” loyalty of many (((members of Congresss))).”

Triple brackets around names is another private language used by anti-Semites, meaning the named person is secretly Jewish or controlled by Jews.

The site illustrated the podcast with a picture of Ms. Omar next to a loving emoji with hearts in its eyes.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters Wednesday that the House Foreign Affairs Committee would draft a new resolution against antisemitism, meaning that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) would be able to edit it.

Pelosi appointed Omar to the committee — Omar’s first choice — in January, despite concerns about her record of radical anti-Israel statements. She has resisted calls to remove Omar from that committee, even after Omar has repeatedly made antisemitic statements about American support for Israel.

On Wednesday, Pelosi claimed that Omar had not been “intentionally antisemitic,” even after she had been told by party leaders and her own Jewish constituents that her remarks were perceived as offensive toward Jews — and to non-Jewish supporters of Israel.

Democrats had planned to hold a vote on a resolution condemning antisemitism by Wednesday, but a party meeting collapsed into a “full-scale brawl,” according to the Washington Post, after some members objected even to a new version of the resolution that had been modified to include a condemnation of anti-Muslim bigotry as well.

Pelosi told reporters that House Democrats would still introduce a motion condemning antisemitism, but that it would be drafted by the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

New: @SpeakerPelosi said the resolution condemning anti-Semitism to be broadened to include more groups and will be drafted by the @HouseForeign. @Ilhan, who is accused of tweeting anti-Semitic comments and was veiled subject of resolution, is a member of the panel.

Omar sits on that committee, and presumably would be able to write and/or edit the resolution that had been triggered by her own antisemitic statements.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) defended Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) from charges of anti-Semitism Thursday, arguing she should receive some leeway because of her upbringing in Somalia.

Schakowsky confirmed reports that she yelled at her colleagues during a Democratic caucus meeting to "stop tweeting," after multiple Democrats condemned Omar's remarks that her pro-Israel opponents had "allegiance to a foreign country." At the same time, some Democrats voiced their support for the congresswoman, exposing division in the party.

"This is not a conversation that we ought to have on social media and in the public…" Schakowsky explained on MSNBC. "The majority of us are — vast majority are going to be voting for a resolution that I hope puts this to bed, that says, yes, as a Jew, anti-Semitism is a huge deal, the anti-Semitic acts are up 50 percent over last year."

"But Islamophobia is also a huge problem," she continued, "and I want to tell you that Ilhan Omar is under tremendous attack, death threats. I think maybe she needs some security. And why? Because I think, in part, the Republicans and the media have blown this up to be much more than it is."

Schakowsky revealed Omar had apologized to her, "not only … for the words that she has used, but she apologized personally to me as a Jew."

"I want to tell you, part of being a Jew is to be welcoming to the stranger. And I want to tell you, Ilhan Omar is a refugee from Somalia. She comes from a different culture. She has things to learn," she continued.

"I am not either trivializing anti-Semitism or the things that she said or saying that it's okay that she said them," she clarified. "But what I am saying is that I think this a learning moment for her and a learning moment for the caucus on how to get along."

Schakowsky's comments mirror those from Democratic House Whip James Clyburn, who complained a day earlier that media outlets weren't reporting that Omar lived through the Somali Civil War. "I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain," he said.

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar deleted tweets about Israel on Monday night that have sparked negative media attention and condemnation.

The oldest tweet she deleted, which was first reported by Jerry Dunleavy of the Washington Examiner, was posted in Nov. 2012, and it read, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel #Gaza #Palestine #Israel.”

At the time, the Israeli Defense Forces’ eight-day Operation Pillar of Defense, during which they were responding to rockets being fired into Israel.

Omar previously defended that tweet in an interview with Christiane Amanpour in January, saying, “What is really important to me is that people recognize that there is a difference between criticizing a military action by a government that has exercised really oppressive policies and being offensive or attacking to particular people of faith.”

She then stood by the comment once again in an interview days later on CNN, but later apologized for “unknowingly” using an anti-Semitic trope. (RELATED: House Overwhelmingly Approves Motion To Condemn Anti-Semitism Amid Omar Fallout)

Omar also deleted two tweets that received media backlash earlier this week in which she accused the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) of buying congressional support for Israel. (RELATED: Omar Releases Statement After Backlash Surrounding Tweet Accusing AIPAC Of Buying Israel Support)

Omar was widely rebuked by members of both parties for what Speaker Pelosi described as using “anti-Semitic tropes.” After the speaker issued her condemnation, she issued an apology on Twitter.

“Anti-Semitism is real, and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole,” her statement read in part.

Omar’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

As of late this morning, neither MSNBC nor CNN have covered the explosive allegations of campaign finance violations against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, according to the Daily Caller.

It was revealed earlier this week that an FEC complaint had been filed accusing Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti of violating campaign finance laws and illegally funneling nearly $885,000 in contributions from political action committees.

According to the Daily Caller, while both CNN and MSNBC mentioned the socialist lawmaker multiple times throughout their programming, neither network discussed the allegations against her.

The Daily Caller writes:

A review of MSNBC’s and CNN’s on-air coverage via Grabien, a television video-clipping service, turned up nothing on these allegations levied against the freshmen representative.

Ocasio-Cortez was mentioned during seven different shows Tuesday on MSNBC. Her defense of Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, who is facing allegations of anti-Semitism, was referenced in four of those instances.

Her name was mentioned during five different programs on CNN, with two pertaining to Omar, and three on her questioning of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former attorney, in front of the House Oversight Committee last week.

Ocasio-Cortez has denied the allegations.

“There is no violation,” the Congresswoman told Fox News yesterday after landing at Ronald Reagan National Airport. She responded, “No, no” when asked if the complaint proves her campaign was connected to “dark money.”

HOUSE EXPECTED TO VOTE ON UPDATED ANTI-SEMITISM RESOLUTION TODAY, AFTER DEM INFIGHTING

“I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”

Omar has been condemned by members of both parties for alleged anti-Semitic comments during her time in Congress while addressing Israel.

Democrats had delayed a resolution Wednesday that would have denounced anti-Semitism. One is expected to be introduced Thursday, with one senior House Democratic source telling Fox News the anti-Semitism resolution is expected to be introduced and voted on, but said the text is still being finalized. Fox News is told the resolution is being drafted by Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin and Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond, both Democrats.

The resolution, although it did not include Omar's name, was aimed at her and her controversial comments before Democrats softened their stance and decided to include other forms of hate including Islamophobia and Xenophobia.

The Hill also reported that Clyburn said he spoke with former California congressman Norman Mineta, a Japanese-American interned during WWII, who gave him a "special appreciation" for Omar's experience.

“She won’t be targeted. We’re going to target those people who had her picture on the Twin Towers,” Clyburn said. “This resolution is going to be inclusive; it’s going to be expansive.”

Clyburn was referencing an anti-Muslim group’s display last month at the West Virginia statehouse that featured a picture of Omar under a burning Twin Towers during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

As seen on America's Newsroom

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) pushed back Thursday on the decision by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi not to call out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) by name in a planned resolution broadly condemning hatred and anti-Semitism.

In recent weeks, Omar (D-Minn.) has drawn strong criticism for her remarks about Israel and U.S. support of the Jewish state.

Speaking Thursday morning to reporters, Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she doesn't believe Omar "understood the full weight of her words" as a member of Congress.

"I feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-Semitic attitude, but that she didn't have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people, where these words have a history and a cultural impact that may have been unknown to her," said Pelosi.

The speaker said a resolution would be brought forward to condemn anti-Semitism without mentioning Omar by name. She said Omar may have to further "explain what she meant" with her recent comments.

On Monday, Omar faced a petition from a group of leading Jewish organizations to have her removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

The most recent outcry came after Omar suggested last week that supporters of Israel have an "allegiance to a foreign country" over the United States.

"I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country," Omar told activists in a Washington, D.C. cafe. "I want to ask why is it OK for me to talk about the influence of the NRA, of fossil fuel industries, or big pharma, and not talk about a powerful lobbying movement that is influencing policy."

Stewart said on "America's Newsroom" that Republicans have been quick to condemn their own members for offensive statements.

"It's not asking too much for the leadership of the Democratic Party to do the same thing," said Stewart, adding he "respectfully disagrees" with Pelosi's argument that the issue is not about Omar specifically.

"Of course it's about her and the comments she made. That's what started this piece of legislation, but frankly the Democratic Party just isn't willing to take a stand on this."

He said Jewish Democrats are likely wondering what is happening in the party after multiple instances of Omar making comments perceived by many to be anti-Semitic.

While freshman Minnesota Congresswoman Omar’s alleged antisemitism has been dominating the headlines in the US in recent weeks, in Israel, the controversies have barely been reported on in Hebrew media, and you’d be hard-pressed to find many Israelis who even know who she is. Yet much of the attacks and condemnations she is facing originate in talking points and policies created by the Israeli right, specifically under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the last decade.

Omar has made repeated claims in recent weeks – some not too carefully crafted — that Israel (a country that holds millions of Palestinians under violent occupation) has outsized influence on American foreign policy and that its lobbyists use money to maintain that support.

Since Sunday, she has been defending herself against a barrage of attacks from both Democrats and Republicans for one sentence – arguably one word — she said at an event last week: "I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country." This has been slammed as a charge of dual loyalty (though she did not specify Jews directly in her comments), an antisemitic trope.

As this has been going on, Omar has been facing death threats and Islamophobic attacks herself, including a poster last week at a Republican Party event which likened her to 9/11 terrorists.

Omar is one of only two Muslim women ever elected to Congress, along with Rep. Rashida Tlaib from Michigan, and they are both the first members of Congress to openly support the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel. This has made them the targets of an incomparable onslaught of scrutiny and attacks.

The Israeli government has invested millions of dollars in its campaign to combat BDS around the world, and has worked hard (and largely succeeded) to equate BDS – a non-violent tactic to secure Palestinian rights — with antisemitism, arguing that it denies Israel the right to exist. As an Israeli and a Jew, I do not challenge Israel’s right to exist, but I do challenge its right to exist as the Jewish supremacist, undemocratic, violent state that it is. That does not make me an antisemite, and neither does solidarity with the call for BDS.

Yet this talking point has been fully adopted in Washington. When you look at the anti-BDS legislation that has already swept half of the US and further efforts on a federal level to penalize Americans who so much as favor a boycott of Israel, it’s no wonder Omar is being attacked. It’s practically a given she would be. A Muslim congresswoman supporting a boycott of Israel is unprecedented in Washington. She is challenging decades-long unconditional American support for Israel while many American legislators are demanding loyalty oaths that enable Israel to continue doing as it pleases – with total impunity.

As Democratic Representative Juan Vargas from California inadvertently confirmed in a tweet denouncing Omar, “questioning support for the US-Israel relationship is unacceptable.” President Donald Trump’s tweet Tuesday that Omar is “under fire for her terrible comments concerning Israel” and that it is a “dark day for Israel” also appeared to be an admission that this has nothing to do with Jews or antisemitism and everything to do with criticizing Israel and US foreign policy.

It’s important to highlight that at the core of the contemporary dual loyalty canard is Zionism’s goal that there be no daylight between Jewish religious, ethnic and national identities. Israel claims to speak for Jews globally and then when people call out Israeli policies, it can conveniently cry out antisemitism. This is the weaponization of antisemitism that we are seeing play out in American domestic policies, and that the Democratic leadership is conceding to.

The fact is that Israel under Netanyahu has normalized right-wing antisemitism in countries like Hungary and the US, while simultaneously demonizing as antisemitic those who try and undermine Israel’s infrastructure of occupation. Without that precedent, the US government would not have the credentials to do to Ilhan Omar what it is doing.

House Democrats have delayed a vote that was scheduled for today on a resolution condemning antisemitism that does not mention Omar by name but is clearly meant to serve as a rebuke of her comments. It does not offer anything innovative about fighting real threats of antisemitism. If it is meant to address the dual loyalty charge, then where was the resolution after President Trump told a room full of American Jews in December that Israel is “your country”?

During the event at which Omar made the statement for which she is under attack, Omar also said, after acknowledging the emotional connection some American Jews have to Israel and likening it to her children’s connection to Somalia: “But we never really allow space for the stories of Palestinians seeking safety and sanctuary to be uplifted. And to me… the dehumanization and the silencing of a particular pain and suffering of people should not be OK and normal. And you can’t be in the practice of humanizing and uplifting the suffering of one if you’re not willing to do that for everyone.”

As a Jew, an American and an Israeli, these sentiments represent my values much more than those claiming to be combatting antisemitism under the guise of the preservation of the US-Israel special relationship.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) responded to Meghan McCain’s tearful expression of fear about Omar’s anti-semitism on Thursday’s broadcast of The View on ABC.

Omar retweeted a nasty attack on McCain’s late father Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) who died in office last year from brain cancer.

McCain said on The View about Omar’s anti-semitism, “What Omar is saying is very scary to me and is very scary to a lot of people. And I don’t think you have to be Jewish to recognize that.”

McCain has not responded as of publication, but she has made it known she is aware of Omar’s RT by retweeting several conservative reporters who have captured Omar’s cowardly attack on her including the one by Joel Pollak shown below.

Omar did not say anything directly to Meghan McCain. Bully that she is, Omar attacked McCain by retweeting someone else’s words, those of Mehdi Hasan, targeting her over her late father, “Meghan’s late father literally sang ‘bomb bomb bomb Iran’ and insisted on referring to his Vietnamese captors as ‘gooks’. He also, lest we forget, gave the world Sarah Palin. So a little less faux outrage over a former refugee-turned-freshman-representative pls.”

David Duke is publicly defending Ilhan Omar in the wake of a series of antisemitic statements that have rankled the Democrat Party nationally.

New York Post

During her defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar amid accusations of anti-Semitism, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez retweeted a post from a supporter of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which the US has designated a terrorist organization.

The head of the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights on Tuesday shared an article questioning the influence of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in the face of accusations from Omar that the pro-Israel lobby was paying members of Congress.

“AIPAC activist tells NYT the lobby is coming for Congresswomen @AOC @RashidaTlaib and @IlhanMN,” Yusuf Munayyer tweeted. “They are three people who, in my opinion, will not be around in several years.”

The New York Times piece cited pro-Israel activist Stephen Fiske, describing him as “a longtime activist” with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Ocasio-Cortez retweeted Munayyer’s tweet and wrote: “This is disappointing to see. Just last week there was all this hubbub over an untrue mischaracterization that I was threatening primaries based on pro-ICE votes.

“Yet there seems to be no problem at all with a zero-tolerance stance for simply asking about US foreign policy.”

Munayyer has a record of applauding the efforts of the PFLP, including retweeting the group’s announcement of a terror attack in Jerusalem in June 2017, according to the Jerusalem Post.

In another tweet from July 2014, Munayyer reminded his followers that the military wings of PFLP and other terrorist organizations, “not just Hamas, [are] all fighting against Israel in this war.”

An Obama appointed judge, Richard Seeborg, ruled that asking people if they’re citizens prevents citizens from being counted.

Seriously. That’s what he said.

This might be the dumbest thing a federal judge has ever said.

“The record in this case has clearly established that including the citizenship question on the 2020 census is fundamentally counterproductive to the goal of obtaining accurate citizenship data about the public,” Seeborg said.

This judge has a history of making idiotic rulings. FLASHBACK: Judge Seeborg tosses case brought by Jews intimidated by Muslims on the Berkeley campus.

A lawsuit by two Jewish students accusing UC Berkeley of turning a blind eye to alleged intimidation by Arab students and fostering a climate of anti-Semitism has been dismissed by a federal judge who said school officials have no duty to intervene in campus political disputes.

And that’s how the left takes anti-semitism mainstream and makes it legitimate. Muslims attack Jews, just like Ilhan Omar does, just like the Muslim students on Berkeley campuses did, and the left claims it’s not a religious issue of bigoted intolerant muslims hating jews, it’s just a political question about Israel. Nothing more to see here. Move along.

Eventually, the Jewish population will learn that the Dems don't need them anymore and they are, now, boldly expressing their Anti-Semitism.

I remember when President Trump was elected all the Democrats were crowing that it was going to be the end of the Republican Party. Less than three years and the Democrat party is spiraling down the toilet of anti-Semitism, bigotry, racism, and plain out and out stupidity and Nancy Pelosi who wanted to make history to become Speaker Of the House once again is going down with it.

Democrats will never hold themselves accountable. This has been known for years, but just this year they have made it obvious to anyone paying attention. There is no accountability for politicians involved in blackface, sexual abuse, anti-semitism, desire to kill babies after birth, just to name a few.

I’ll be interested to see how many American Jews still vote for Democrats. I was shocked to see how many voted for the party that doesn’t support Israel. Clearly, I don’t understand the rationale behind supporting the party that doesn’t believe in Israel’s future.

Pelosi defended Rep. Ilhan Omar in the video below when she said this:

“I don’t think that the Congresswoman is, perhaps, appreciate the full weight of how it was heard by other people, although I don’t believe it was intended in any anti-Semitic way,”

“But the fact is that’s how it was interpreted, we have to remove all doubt. As we have done, over and over again.”

Hey Dems, you created this monster, good luck dealing with what you’ve created.

Unfortunately, the rest of us have to deal with it too. Now I know how Germans who were against Hitler felt in the 1930s. This is how fascism starts, with fanatics like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. I would laugh at how the Dems have lost control but unfortunately, there is nothing funny about catering to Anti-Semites, embracing a platform that excludes God, and cheering for abortions after birth. The modern Democrat party is dangerous.

This is going to result in losses to the Democratic party and I won’t shed a tear. The number of people that say, “I didn’t leave the Democratic party, the Democratic party left ME” is going to increase. Antisemitism and Infanticide and the failure to condemn these infractions are the cornerstones of their demise.

IMPORTANT => We’re being censored by social media and need your help to continue to fight against the opposition media lies.

The Republicans rebuked Steve King and they didn’t make excuses to “tolerate” so-called White Supremacy, one of the latest boogeymen from the left. Nor did they expand it into a negotiation on how King should be punished.

Omar committed an ethical infraction. The Old Democrat Party would have removed her from her committee assignment and/or censured her. They wouldn’t have made it a bargaining issue with Omar and her sympathizers. She did the deed. The discussion should not be about every offense the Dems can dream of that might be against one of their victimhood pawns.

Pelosi wanted the speakership so bad and now she’s fighting the tiger she grabbed by the tail. Be careful what you wish for.

Speaker Pelosi bowed to her radical wing on Wednesday.

Instead of passing a resolution to condemn Democrat anti-Semite Ilhan Omar, the Democrat leader will rewrite the resolution to omit Omar’s name. Now the resolution will include bigotry and prejudice of all kinds.

Apparently, their need to be inclusive and politically correct trumped the need for the truth.

What a disgrace.

On Wednesday night Sean Hannity blasted Democrats for failing to pass a resolution to condemn anti-Semitism.

Hannity took a blowtorch to Pelosi for bowing to radical lunatic Ocasio-Cortez — the REAL leader of House Democrats.

Now this…

Speaker Pelosi will allow anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar to review and edit the Democrat resolution before it is voted on.

Via Breitbart:

New: @SpeakerPelosi said the resolution condemning anti-Semitism to be broadened to include more groups and will be drafted by the @HouseForeign. @Ilhan, who is accused of tweeting anti-Semitic comments and was veiled subject of resolution, is a member of the panel.

Well, this is helpful and not at all scientifically correct. As the controversy over Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic remarks continues to roil, she’s already moving on to dehumanizing others. That seems to be a favored pastime of hers. You’d think after taking a victory lap over the Democrat’s watered down “anti-hate resolution,” she’d try practicing a little of the “not hating” part, but nah.

Fox News’ Guerin Hays asks Ilhan Omar about last week's Politico article: “Do you think President Obama is the same as President Trump?”

Omar: “Absolutely not. … One is human the other is not”

Donald Trump is a lot things, good and bad. I think we can confirm that being human is among his traits (further testing is needed on his hair though).

For my part, this kind of rhetoric doesn’t cause me to lose any sleep at this point. I know who Ilhan Omar is by now just like I know who Donald Trump is. To be sure, he has had plenty of his own foot-in-mouth episodes over how he addresses people he doesn’t like. Washington is not a nice place and I’m not going to pretend it is or ever was.

I do think it’s worth noting the double standard that exists here. Imagine if Donald Trump were to call Ilhan Omar “not human.” It’d be national news for days, the House would vote to censure him, and Don Lemon’s head would literally explode from saying the word “racist” so many times. But because it’s Trump, anything goes and this will only get a passing mention on Twitter. Perhaps he’s brought that on himself, but that’s not an excuse for a Congressional member to say the President is not human to a news network. At least be discrete enough to leak it from a private meeting or something.

While Democrats are constantly railing against Trump’s rhetoric, they seem equally determined to one-up him and Rep. Omar is helping lead that charge. She’s formed a habit of adding more gasoline to the fire. Since being elected, she’s become one of the Democratic party’s most volatile voices, whether it be her repeated anti-Semitic remarks, calling Barack Obama(!) a murderer, or supporting socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro over the pleas of dying Venezuelans. As a Somali refugee, Omar was welcomed and shown the charity and freedom America has to offer, not because she was entitled to it, but because that’s simply the kind of country the United States is. Unfortunately, her response has not been gratitude but denigration at every turn and she shows no signs of slowing down.

I’ll end this with a prudent suggestion from Mollie Hemingway.

This is a bipartisan problem, I've observed, but a recommendation that we refrain from dehumanizing our political opponents. https://t.co/CNdyz4jCNc

Recently sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib blasted GOP Rep. Steve Scalise Wednesday evening; accusing the lawmaker of “Islamophobia” after he demanded Ilhan Omar be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee for her anti-Semitic statements.

“Hard to watch Rep. Scalise demand that Rep. @IlhanMN be removed from House Foreign Affairs w/o wondering if it’s steeped in Islamophobia. Ilhan is more than capable of sitting on the committee & making decisions that are in the best interests of her constituents & all Americans,” posted Tlaib on social media.

Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke endorsed radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday as the “most important person in Congress.”

David Duke posted a photo of Ilhan Omar to his Twitter account on Thursday with a “heart eyes emoji,” showing his love for her after her recent comments disparaging Jews and Israel.

“By Defiance to Z.O.G. [Zionist Occupation Government] Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” David Duke said in a Twitter caption linking to his blog post.

David Duke praised Ilhan Omar on his podcast/blog for being the “one person in Congress willing to notice AIPAC and the “dual” loyalty of many members of Congress.”
