    In a story unearthed by U.S. Liberty Wire , citing a deep-weeds Minnesota state political news site , here's some new information on the decisionmaking of Minnesota leftist Democrat and House Foreign Affairs committee member, Rep. Ilhan Omar, dating from her days in the Minnesota statehouse: On Thursday, members of the Minnesota House voted to pass H.F. 1397, a bill which would give life insurance companies the right to deny payouts to beneficiaries whose loved one died while committing an act of terrorism. In a bipartisan effort, Republicans and Democrats joined together to pass the bill 127-2. Reps. Ilhan Omar...
  • Ilhan Omar Won’t Get Prosecuted for Immigration Fraud, Showing Who Really Has the Privilege

    Here is yet more evidence of the two-tier justice system we have in the United States. A “veteran insider” at the Department of Homeland Security revealed Wednesday that two different federal agencies have investigated Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Ankara) for months, but decided not to prosecute her for immigration fraud, despite clear and readily available evidence that she married her own brother as part of an elaborate immigration scam. A key clue as to why there will be no prosecution can be seen in the fact that Omar has accused those who have researched her unusual marital arrangements of “Islamophobia.” Ilhan...
  • Rashida Tlaib Violated Campaign Finance Law, House Ethics Committee Unanimously Rule

    Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib violated the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 by paying herself a salary from her campaign after securing victory in the 2018 general election, the House Ethics Committee unanimously ruled on Friday. The Ethics committee found that Tlaib violated FECA’s personal use restrictions by paying herself $10,800 from her campaign when she was no longer a congressional candidate in late 2018 and ordered her to repay that amount back to her campaign within one year, the committee said in a report. The committee “determined that the evidence is sufficient to support a determination that a...

    Newspaper political endorsements are almost meaningless in the internet era, but this one is different. The StarTribune is the largest newspaper in Minnesota and s with almost all metropolitan dailies, the Strib is progressive and supports Democrats. The paper has distinguished itself by largely ignoring the many irregularities in the personal and political history of Rep. Ilhan Omar, who represents Minneapolis, where the paper is located. Scott Johnson of Powerline has distinguished himself with his best-in-the-nation coverage of Omar’s scandals and the abandonment of most of these stories by her district’s largest newspaper. The abdication of the Star Tribune is...

    The Minneapolis Police Department is advising residents of the city to “Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet” if approached by robbers, and “Do not argue or fight with the criminal. Do as they say.” The “robbery prevention tips” were circulated by the department and reported by local ABC affiliate KSTP-5. They advise that the city is suffering an increase in robberies and carjackings, especially in the 3rd Precinct — the area of the city in which George Floyd was killed in police custody on Memorial Day, and rioters destroyed police headquarters. Others posted the tips on...

    The House speaker said last year that Tlaib and rest of 'The Squad' 'didn't have any following' House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) endorsed Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D.) on Wednesday in her Democratic primary contest, in a change of course from her past criticisms of Tlaib and other members of "The Squad." "Rep. Tlaib never stops fighting for her district, which she is proud to represent," Pelosi said. "And I am proud to endorse her for re-election." Tlaib and the three other far-left House Democrats known as "The Squad" have had a contentious relationship with Pelosi and the Democratic...

    Colorado Gov. Jared Polis made a significant donation to the campaign of Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's primary opponent. According to campaign finance records, Polis, a Democrat, donated $1,000 to Antone Melton-Meaux, a Minneapolis attorney who is running as a Democrat in the primary race for Omar's seat, on Monday. Melton-Meaux has significantly outpaced Omar in terms of fundraising. In the most recent filings, he brought in $3.2 million, nearly 7 times the fundraising haul that Omar brought in during the same time period. Omar's campaign has said it is not concerned about Melton-Meaux's fundraising success because many of his donations...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday called for the arrest of violent protesters while taking questions for the first time in 28 days. The former vice president struck a discordant tone with fellow liberals who insist protests against the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police are peaceful, and that authorities are to blame for any violence in Portland and other cities. “I think we do need to hold those who violate the law accountable,” Biden said. “We should never let what’s done in a march for equal rights overcome what the reason for the march is. And...

    Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has been the driving force behind small, fringe and leftist movements to defund Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Border Patrol and police departments across the country. When the New York City Council voted to cut $1 billion from the NYPD budget, she said it wasn't enough.  "Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” she released in a statement. "These proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD...

    Editor's note: The column was co-authored by Bruce Abramson.  Anyone concerned with Jews and Israel should be horrified by the Democrats’ newly released 2020 platform. It directly threatens the Jewish state, employs double-talk calculated to stoke antagonism between the American left and Israel, and pays passing lip-service to opposing antisemitism, but in the gaslighting way Linda Sarsour and Ilhan Omar do; to deny it where it exists and point fingers elsewhere. In both narrative and policy, the platform crosses over the line into deep antisemitic territory. It’s a dangerous acceleration of an approach first tested when Joe Biden was Vice...

    EXCLUSIVE: A resolution introduced Thursday by House Republicans condemns allegedly “anti-American” statements by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., after remarks in which she called for supporters to begin “dismantling the whole system of oppression.” The resolution, introduced by Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. – and co-sponsored by Reps. Scott Perry, R-Pa., Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn., Andy Harris, R-Md., Chip Roy, R-Texas, Ted Budd, R-N.C., Ralph Norman, R-S.C., Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., and Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz. – accuses Omar of having “a documented history of expressing anti-American sentiments.”

Shortly after another Hitleristic Farrakhan ideology [2] infected apologized, yet another outburst of more poison coded language infection, thus time Nick Conner [3] (including deciding who is Jewish. This hate based history denial also linked to the Hannukah massacre [4], despite DNA finding most Jews of any color are connected to Biblical matriarchs [5]). It's based on seeing the Jew behind everything. it's the philosophy of the swastika hanging behind radical delusional Bernie Sanders[6]  (eventhough he is a fanatical anti Israel...

    Does one more diatribe against Israel published by The New York Times matter? In recent years, the Times has had an open-door policy for those who oppose not just the policies of the Israeli government but also the whole idea of a Jewish state. So the publication last week of a piece by Atlantic columnist Peter Beinart explaining “Why I No Longer Believe in a Jewish State” — and opting for a single nation of both Arabs and Jews, instead of a two-state solution — didn’t really break new ground. What’s important, though, about Beinart’s decision to switch from self-proclaimed...

    How can you give disaster relief when the democrats, themselves, are the disaster. Are citizens required to pay to rebuild the city after democrats have burned it down? Our President has made it clear that when states turn down an opportunity of help in preventing this chaos and destruction, they have little right to then ask for monetary means in order to rebuild.TIME:12:22 A brilliant synopsis!

    The Biden (and Sanders and AOC) “Climate” plan is out, and boy is it a doozy. – Make no mistake about this: Joe Biden might be the “nominee” and official face of the Democrat Party in this general election, but the Party has been fully taken over by the party’s radical, outright Marxist wing. At best, Biden is nothing more than a sock puppet; at worst, a willing co-conspirator. Yesterday’s release by the Biden Campaign’s “unity task force” on climate led by AOC is manifest proof of that reality. The “plan,” such as it is, is written in the soft,...

Democrat Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley unveiled the BREATHE Act, which has not yet been introduced in the House, calling it “a new vision for public safety.” The bill was created by the Movement for Black Lives, a self-proclaimed abolitionist, anti-capitalist group, who also participated in its unveiling.

    New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media. Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.
