Freshman Minnesota Congressional Representative Ilhan Omar, in an apparent bid to keep a Twitter feud alive with President Trump, tweeted a photo of herself posing with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi at the “Door of No Return” on the coast of Ghana. Part of a 15-member Congressional Black Caucus junket (funded presumably by US […]

“War is deceit,” said Muhammad (Bukhari 4.52.268). “Breaking: sword murderer apparently lived under false identity in Germany,” translated from Eilt: Schwertmörder lebte anscheinend unter falscher Identität in Deutschland,” JournalistenWatch, August 1, 2019 (thanks to Searchlight Germany): Stuttgart – The alleged murderer who attacked and killed a 36-year-old German with a sword on Wednesday evening in broad […]
He railed against “Silicon Valley white twats,” so it’s unlikely that he was a white supremacist, contrary to establishment media claims. But although he had material on jihad, he doesn’t seem to have been a committed Muslim, or a Muslim at all; he is more likely to have been a hate-filled individual with a thirst to […]
“Whoever knows why I came to America wait for the urgent news on television screens and victory is from Allah.” Another grateful “refugee.” “Florida man accused of threatening President Trump during arrest at Walmart,” Associated Press, July 30, 2019: FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man accused of trying to slash a Walmart employee with […]
Those who are celebrated by the Left today for hating Trump more vociferously and obnoxiously than the next Leftist don’t have clean hands themselves. “Virginia Lawmaker Connected to Anti-Semitic Groups,” by Mikhael Smits, Washington Free Beacon, May 21, 2019: A member of the Virginia legislature and former volunteer for Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) is connected […]
Trespassing, multiple traffic violations – and oh, she married her brother. My latest in FrontPage: The striking evidence that Minnesota’s notorious Representative Ilhan Omar married her own brother in an apparent case of immigration fraud is finally making its way into the mainstream, albeit amid a great deal of obfuscation and outright disinformation. However, that curious case is […]
She doesn’t have to worry, of course: the establishment media will never call her out on this hypocrisy. “Whoops: BDS Proponent Ilhan Omar uses Israeli company to Power Website,” by David Sidman, Breaking Israel News, July 23, 2019: Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D, MN), who introduced legislation that seeks to protect those who want to boycott, divest […]
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has wisely decided to permit Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar to visit Israel. Now Israel must make the most of this trip, which the two Congresswomen plan to use to further their anti-Israel agenda. The Israelis should suggest, in the most respectful possible way, that while Rashida and Ilhan will […]
After declining to try on a hijab, Kathy Zhu said: “So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?” How “Islamophobic,” right? But what about Aqsa Parvez? Her Muslim father choked her to death with […]
Vice President Mike Pence has called on U.S. ally Saudi Arabia to “release Raif Badawi, a blogger imprisoned for reportedly insulting Islam.” In the midst of Saudi Arabia telling the world that it is modernizing, Raif Badawi remains in jail, and in August of last year, Raif Badawi’s sister Samar — among other women’s rights […]
Sharia justice in the UK. My latest in FrontPage: As Tommy Robinson headed into court for his sentencing Thursday, he wore a t-shirt that read: “Convicted of Journalism.” And it’s true. Tommy Robinson is heading back to jail for doing what journalists routinely do: ask questions of defendants heading into courtrooms. The gaggle of establishment media journalists […]
“Extremist, terrorist, tough, brain-washed, radical, I love explosions, booby trapping, beheading the enemy, and am among the supporters of establishing the religion with the sword.” Charming fellow. Why was he admitted into the US in the first place? Was any attempt made to determine his sentiments regarding jihad? Almost certainly not. “Tunisian national with terrorist […]
And judging by Facebook’s treatment of foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others, they are likely to find themselves on the “Dangerous Individuals” list. This new policy incites the violent and hateful among Facebook’s 2 billion users to threaten to kill people whose points of view dissent from the Leftist agenda. […]
If it weren’t already clear where her loyalties lie, the contrast between these two messages should remove any doubts anyone may still have. “Ilhan Omar Sends Somber Fourth Of July Message Days After Celebrating Somali Independence Day,” by Molly Prince, Daily Caller, July 5, 2019: Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar urged Americans to celebrate the Fourth […]
Here is the real collusion. But as always, the establishment media and the political elites will protect Omar from any political consequences, should she take such donations. “Turkish media calls for Turks to fund, support Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign,” MEMRI, July 2, 2019: (July 2, 2019 / MEMRI) Tarek Cherkaoui, the manager of the Turkish […]
