2020: It Don’t Mean a Thing If You Ain’t Got Those Swings

When most people think about the Democratic party, they think of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). That may be a good thing for AOC, but it’s terrible news for the DNC. Heading into 2020, the worst scenario for Donald Trump’s opponents is to be defined by a 29-year-old socialist with half-baked, radical views, light years away from heartland America. But according to a pile of new surveys from Axios to Heritage Action, that’s a gamble too many liberals are willing to take.

In a country that can’t name a single Supreme Court justice, Ocasio-Cortez’s name recognition is impressive: 74 percent know her. But, according to polling, only 22 percent like her. That sums up the problem for Democrats, who’ve spent the last several months hitching their wagons — and their presidential dreams — to the most extreme branch on the party tree. On one hand, strategists like stoking the base. On the other, they know the general election will be won right of center — a place the Democrats’ agendas has rarely ventured.

With all eyes on the 15-20 percent of American pollsters say is “getable,” some high-profile liberals are worried the party’s lurch to the Left might be their 2020 undoing. Even Rahm Emanuel, former Obama White House Chief of Staff, pulled the fire alarm over their far-out policies, warning Democrats, “There’s a reason Trump gleefully tweeted ‘That’s the end of that race!’ during the first debate: Too often, you succumbed to chasing plaudits on Twitter, which closed the door on swing voters in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.” If “you win the nomination in a way that forecloses a path to victory in the general election, we will lose…” Emanuel insisted.

Health care for illegal immigrants? That’s “a position not even Ted Kennedy took,” Rahm argued. And “before we start worrying about whether the Boston Marathon bomber can vote,” he scolded, “let’s stop states that are actively trying to curtail voting rights of citizens.” The bottom line, he insisted, is “When you’re looking into the camera at the coming debate, imagine you’re speaking to a voter in Grand Rapids or Green Bay… Her vote is how you win the nomination and the White House. Everything else is secondary.”

There’s a reason Rahm and the rest of party headquarters are sweating it. Based on new survey data from Heritage Action, the general electorate is completely unnerved by the Left’s field of Green New Deal-infanticide-open borders-socialists. In the puzzle of purple states that one party will need to win, Democrats are making the job a whole lot harder for themselves by chasing wildly unpopular priorities like taxpayer-funded gender transitions.

In communities still reeling from the debates over killing newborn babies and hosting drag queens at public libraries, the culture is — not surprisingly — one of the top four strongest messaging points for voters, Heritage Action found. “There’s definitely a national sentiment that the Left is pushing way too far,” the group’s Nate Rogers explained. Liberals are “finding themselves in a difficult situation, where a majority of their bases are really supporting policies that are just out of step and out of touch with the American people at large, or at least the voters we surveyed.”

In a mayday stat for the DNC, 57 percent of the general electorate think national Democrats have become “culturally extreme,” a number almost certainly explained by the party’s race to the extremes on “hot-button social issues.” Case in point, Heritage Action’s Tim Chapman explains: “House and Senate Democrats recently blocked a proposal requiring doctors to provide medical care to infants who survive abortion — and every Democratic presidential candidate has toed the party line in opposing such care. Yet even while we found that more Americans identified as pro-choice instead of pro-life (48 percent, versus 45 percent), 76 percent of respondents– including huge majorities of Republicans, independents and even pro-choice Democrats — overwhelmingly support the policy Democrats blocked.”

And abortion isn’t the only area where conservatives can distinguish themselves. Immigration, privacy, gender, and religious liberty are no friend of the social zealots on the Left. The GOP has its best opportunity in ages to distinguish itself with common-sense values that the majority of Americans still care about.

“Republicans have defaulted to defense on culture over the past decade-plus,” Chapman told Politico, “often due to pressure from big business and the libertarian wing of the party. Yet the GOP now has an opportunity to play offense. By undertaking a concerted effort to contrast its positions with those of the Democrats, Republicans can unify their base and bring in those independents and moderates who are concerned by the Left’s growing cultural extremism.”

13 things that no one is saying about the Dem Debate 2.2

I haven’t seen so much delusional zealotry since, well, the first installment of the second Democratic debate the previous night.

The second installment began with the same conspicuous patriotism and anthem-singing. Only this time, instead of a choir of stray cats, the singer was a completely bald woman in monstrous sunglasses, which aptly foreshadowed the freak show about to unfold. Dee Dee Bridgewater was listed as a jazz singer, but her style was neither jazzy nor classy. It was rather an “I got drunk at a karaoke bar and totally forgot I can’t sing” kind of style.

It seemed that after 60 years of the Democratic one-party rule, the once booming city of Motown had lost not only half of its population and industries, but also all of its legendary performers. And the powerful people on that stage were itching to do the same to the rest of America, only faster.

In his opening statement, Bill de Blasio expressed everyone’s feelings when he directly addressed the unwashed workers and peasants of America and called for a socialist revolution. Like Lenin and Stalin before him, de Blasio goes by a made-up name. His real name is Warren Wilhelm Jr. It seems that his father, Warren Wilhelm, didn’t like his son very much and named him Warren Wilhelm as well. The resulting self-hatred and possibly the Oedipus complex must have brought forth an obsession with revolutionary changes, including the changing of his own name, which he has done not once but twice.

The compulsive-insurgent pro-establishment mayor was followed by two tedious and fully interchangeable contenders who looked like Tweedledum and Tweedledee. One of them was Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado, who seemed to be a foremost beneficiary of his state’s new marijuana law and at the time was probably thinking of Doritos. The other one was Jay Inslee, the governor of Washington State, who occasionally droned in a monotone voice, “the house is on fire,” which always put everyone else to sleep.

If the Bolshevik Bill de Blasio sounded like a time traveler from 1917, businessman Andrew Yang seemed to be a transplant from the year 3000, when humanity will have reached fabulous prosperity due to technological progress and total robotization. He offered to pay everyone a thousand dollars a month out of the money he would be regularly beaming from the future, and promised that if people voted for him now, they would never have to work again, and probably never vote again either.

Julian Castro, mixing English and Spanish words, condemned foreign interference in our elections and suggested that to eliminate voter fraud, all future U.S. elections should be held in Mexico and the federal government be moved from Washington to Tijuana.

Tulsi Gabbard, a military combat veteran, turned her opening statement into a battle against a contingent of straw men, whom she successfully defeated, put against the wall, and shot them in the back of the head execution-style.

Cory Booker’s opening statement was interrupted by unintelligible screaming. It was later widely reported that the hecklers shouted, “Fire Pantaleo,” demanding the head of a New York cop implicated in the death of Eric “I can’t breathe” Garner. It appears that some leftist agitators had come all the way from New York to heckle the leftist agitator de Blasio, but got him confused with the leftist agitator Cory Booker. That is a common problem with Non-Playing Characters (NCPs) who all look alike.

Kamala Harris agitated for finishing off our already injured healthcare system. The others agreed with her view that Barack Obama had taken the American healthcare hostage and tortured it to near death, and that it was a mistake to keep it breathing for so long, and now it had to be put out of its misery. The disagreements were largely about the methods of execution: lethal injection, beheading, or guillotine. The Democrats in the audience clapped approvingly, although many probably wondered, “Who do I have to sleep with in order to get Kamala’s health insurance plan?”

Another hot topic was NAFTA and other bad trade deals, with everyone blaming Trump for not reforming the international trade fast enough, even though they should have thanked Trump for exposing the problem and thus giving them something to talk about.

Cory Booker’s answer to every question was, “it doesn’t matter what you do, it matters how you do it.” When no one was looking, he took out his phone and tweeted: “To the folks who were standing up to Mayor de Blasio a few minutes ago – good for you. That’s how change is made. #DemDebate.”

All the participants described America as such a hellhole that if they were to hold this debate on the southern border, the arriving migrant caravans would have run back home in terror, putting an end to illegal border crossings.

The white woman Kirsten Gillibrand was at some point caught off guard by a moderator’s question. There was an awkward pause as her beautiful blue eyes pleaded to leave her alone, as if saying, “Sorry, I wasn’t paying attention, I was thinking about my gorgeous blonde hair and pink shoes to match my white woman’s coral dress.” She knows that no matter how much she condemns white privilege in principle, she can’t shed her pasty skin and must yield to the most intersectionally-endowed Kamala Harris, who is a woman, a person of color, and a cold-blooded scaled predator.

Donald Trump, once again, maintained his invisible presence and hovered over the stage, messing with everyone’s heads. Kamala Harris was talking about him when she screamed a familiar phrase, “He betrayed this country!!!” If she continues to channel Al Gore, I can predict that she will likely become the Democratic nominee, lose the 2020 election, grow a beard, and live the rest of her life as a sore loser.

Kamala’s other quote was, “Donald Trump has predatory nature and predatory instincts… And predators are cowards.” Without blinking, Tulsi Gabbard reminded everyone that Kamala Harris was herself a confirmed predatory prosecutor who withheld exculpatory evidence and sent innocents to prison for the sake of good-looking statistics.

This was Tulsi’s moment of glory as she proved to the world that her killer instinct was bigger than Kamala’s killer instinct. All the highbrow commentary aside, this attack was a calculated move by a woman who realized that in the current identity politics system, a woman must kill other women to win the jackpot. Thus, Tulsi’s immediate goal was to annihilate Kamala and occupy that intersectional niche from which she can rule over men. Kamala Harris, who in the past championed identity politics and benefited from it, shouldn’t complain: you’ve made your bed, now lie in it.

Harris was so stunned by this blitzkrieg that she missed a golden opportunity to accuse her foe of Islamophobia and to claim that Tulsi had enlisted after 9/11 because she was itching to kick some peaceful Muslims in the pants. Perhaps she will still bring it up in future debates or spread it around as rumors, the same way her surrogates have now begun to insinuate that Tulsi is a Russian agent who is angling to run as an independent in order to split the Democratic vote and ensure Trump’s second term.

I could go on, but I’ve already taken enough of your time from your assigned duties in the vast right-wing conspiracy. After all, my goal is not as much to restate what happened, as to share the deliciously gratifying experience of watching high-ranking Democrats engage in man-on-man catfights or bludgeon each other’s heads with the same manipulative propaganda they usually reserve for us.

Gillette Comes within a Whisker of Disaster

“Your stupid boycotts will never make a dent in a company like P&G,” one liberal scoffed back in January. Turns out, they didn’t just make a dent. After a string of male-bashing, transgender shaving ads, the parent company of Gillette got nicked so badly, market experts wonder if the brand will survive. Gillette’s CEO insists the radical activism was “worth the price.” Let’s hope so — because so far, that price is a whopping $8 billion dollars.

To most customers, a razor company dabbling in gender politics never made sense in the first place. Gillette used to be “the best a man can get.” Now the company can’t even acknowledge what a man actually is! Things for the brand started to unravel earlier this year when P&G gave the green light to a controversial commercial about the culture’s “toxic masculinity.” The idea, CEO Gary Coombe said at the time, was to reach millennials. Weeks into the flop, even he admitted it backfired.

But instead of ditching its politically-charged messages, Gillette dug in deeper. On Father’s Day, the company finally went too far, launching an ad about a dad teaching his “son” — who happens to be a biological girl — how to shave. That did it. Conservative groups like One Million Moms activated, warning customers that unless they wanted their money to support an ideology Pediatricians call “child abuse,” they’d better find another razor.

Based on this quarter’s report, an astonishing number of Americans did. “P&G reported a net loss of about $5.24 billion, or $2.12 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, due to an $8 billion non-cash writedown of Gillette. For the same period last year,” Reuters explains, “P&G’s net income was $1.89 billion, or 72 cents per share.” At least for now, the company’s executives are refusing to blame their liberal politics. Instead, CFO Jon Moeller found another culprit: Beards. That’s right. P&G is actually writing off its monumental fail on the rise of facial hair. “Lower shaving frequency has reduced the size of the developed blades and razors market,” he tried to justify on a call with analysts.

Some shareholders might buy that, but most shoppers agree — it’s time for companies like Gillette to look in the mirror. Political activism never pays. Just look at the fanatics at Target and Nike, whose stocks took a nose-dive for offending Americans’ basic sense of decency and patriotism. Even so, some companies are pressing forward despite the fallout. Just last month, grocery giant Whole Foods surprised everyone by sponsoring drag queen story hour. Even Nabisco’s most famous cookies — Oreo and Chips Ahoy — have spent 2019 waving the transgender flag. But the reckoning isn’t just coming. It’s here.

So the next time someone tries to tell you that shopping your values doesn’t work, or one person can’t possibly make a difference, remember Gillette. It only takes a handful of committed shoppers to send a message. As former Walmart CEO Bill Simon explained on “Washington Watch,” the “very, very best way you can communicate your concern is with your wallet.” Companies are in the business to make money.

“When [a] company does something that you don’t agree with — or their product represents something that you don’t agree with — the simple answer is to not buy it or not participate. And that’s honestly the loudest voice that a customer can deliver to a company is, ‘I choose not to buy your product.'”

“A three percent change in sales of a company or a five percent change in the sales company will make a huge statement. It doesn’t take a lot of people to stop buying product or to stop going to a retailer or a restaurant — or whatever it is — for them to notice, because a couple of percentage points is win or lose for a company.”

PODCAST: Christian Nationalism? The Left’s Latest Attempt to Silence Believers

By FRC’s David Closson, Director of Christian Ethics and Biblical Worldview

A coalition of left-leaning church leaders recently launched a project “Against Christian Nationalism.” In their statement they cite “Christian nationalism” as a “persistent threat to both our religious communities and our democracy.” At best, the project is a solution in search of a problem — at worst, it’s an attempt to drive conservative Christians out of the public square.

According to the statement, “Christian nationalism seeks to merge Christian and American identities, distorting both the Christian faith and America’s constitutional democracy. Christian nationalism demands Christianity be privileged by the State and implies that to be a good American, one must be Christian.”

As David Barton, president of Wall Builders, pointed out on “Washington Watch” Tuesday, the problem with this statement lies in how “Christian nationalism” is defined. Clearly, these left-leaning church leaders (which includes Jim Wallis who advised President Obama and Tony Campolo who advised President Clinton) are seeking to redefine nationalism in a way that implies something sinister about conservative Christians who love their country.

No one is seriously arguing that “to be a good American, one must be a Christian.” This points to the insincere motives of this movement; simply put, theologically liberal Christians are fearful of the gains social conservatives have made in the last few years, and they are attempting to sideline faithful Christians by creating what Barton describes a “radioactive term” to sully their reputation.

But Christians who love their nation have nothing to apologize for; in fact, they should be emboldened to enter the political arena with the courage of their convictions. As David Barton points out, the vast majority of Americans do love their country and identify as Christian. In short, patriotism is a virtue, not a vice. As Barton notes, quoting one of the Declaration of Independence signers, “The Declaration says that patriotism is a religious and moral duty because if you love your country, you will want what’s best for it. And if you want what’s best for it, that’s going to bless everyone who lives in the nation… loving your country and seeking what’s best for it is a blessing.”

However, a broader point about “Christian Nationalism” and the idea of America as a Christian nation is raised by this story which deserves further comment. Is belief that America is a “Christian nation” equivalent to Christian Nationalism? To answer this question, it is important to carefully define terms.

First, if by “Christian nation” we mean America was influenced by Christian principles at the founding, it is difficult to argue the reverse. Clearly, Christianity provided the principles of equal rights and human dignity that motivated the founders. Moreover, the majority of the Founding Fathers were Christians who generally believed in the truth of the Bible. Christianity remains the largest religion in the United States. Finally, Christian beliefs still provide the intellectual background for many of our cultural values such as respect for human dignity, the need to care for the disadvantaged, and respect for the rule of law. In all of these senses, America could be called a “Christian nation.”

However, in another sense — surveying the cultural landscape today — we are not. Are the majority of Americans Bible-believing, born-again Christians? No. Do Christian values dominate the perspective promoted by the government, media, and universities in America? No. Does the government compel people to follow a Christian church? No, because this would violate the first amendment of the Constitution. Do people have to profess Christian faith to be citizens or have equal rights under the law in this country? No. Are Christian ideas welcomed and accepted by many in “elite” circles of public opinion? No. In these senses, America is not a “Christian nation.”

The irony is that many of the activists behind this attempt to demonize conservative Christians participating in politics see an “evangelical bogeyman” under every rock, and still proceed to argue that Christians somehow overwhelmingly dominate the culture. The reality is far different.

Thus, in conversations about “Christian nationalism,” it is important to define the terms. When someone alleges that America is or is not a “Christian nation” it is important to determine what they mean by the phrase. Clearly, America is indebted to Christian morality in significant ways.

All Bible-believing Christians reject “white supremacy” and “racial subjugation” which backers of the “Against Christian nationalism” campaign claim is inherent to Christian nationalism. However, this is a redefinition of terms and an attempt to drive patriotic Christians from the public square at a time when social conservatives are making tremendous gains on life and religious liberty at the state and federal level.

Christians ought to affirm God’s providential working in history. The material blessings of the United States are not unconnected from the Christian morality that has under girded our country, and Christians should continue to exert their influence at all levels of government, while allowing a free marketplace of ideas that allows for open debate and religious freedom.

Lawsuit Filed Challenging Constitutionality of California Law Requiring Trump’s Tax Returns

SAN DIEGOAug. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, a California native and candidate for the 2020 Republican Party nomination for President of the United States, has filed a federal lawsuit in the United States District Court in the Southern District of California challenging California Senate Bill 27, or the so called “Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act” signed into law on July 30 by Governor Gavin Newsom.

De La Fuente, who is challenging President Trump for the 2020 Republican Presidential nomination, said,

“all Republicans must stand united in demanding that state officials be held to account when they threaten fundamental rights guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.”

California’s law would require presidential candidates to file their 5 most recent tax returns in order to appear on California’s presidential primary election ballot. In his pleadings, De La Fuente argues that this violates the Qualifications Clause of Article II, section 1, clause 5 of the United States Constitution and federal statutory law which guarantees that federal income tax returns remain confidential.  He also argues that this violates the First Amendment guarantee that state governments cannot force speech, even of political candidates.

De La Fuente, who prevailed in lawsuits against other states relating to unconstitutional ballot access laws and regulations during his independent bid for President in 2016 says,

“If voters want a candidate to release their tax returns, voters are free to withhold their vote from candidates who do not. Personally, as a candidate seeking the Republican nomination for President, I will be releasing my last 5 years of tax returns voluntarily. However, California’s requirement to make federal income tax returns public as a condition of ballot access is unconstitutional. It is not a valid ‘ballot access’ restriction, because it has nothing whatsoever to do with the proper regulation of the ballot, such as preventing frivolous candidates from appearing, or to ensure that elections are conducted in an orderly manner.”

In the Politico column Trump lawyer to California: See you in court Jeremy B. White reports:

President Donald Trump’s lawyers immediately signaled today they will challenge a California law requiring Trump to disclose his tax returns if he wants to appear on primary ballots in the state.

“The State of California’s attempt to circumvent the Constitution will be answered in court,” Trump attorney Jay Sekulow said in an emailed statement shortly after Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the bill into law.

California has become a theatre of the absurd.

UPDATE: (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of four California voters to prevent the California secretary of state from implementing a new state law requiring all presidential candidates who wish to appear on California’s primary ballot to publicly disclose their personal tax returns from the past five years (Jerry Griffin et al. v. Alex Padilla (No. 2:19-cv-01477). The suit alleges that the law unconstitutionally adds a new qualification for candidates for president. Judicial Watch’s clients include a registered Independent, Republican, and Democrat California voter. Read more.

VIDEO: Maria Elvira Salazar running for Congress in Florida District 27

Maria Elvira Salazar has announced that she is running for Congress in Florida District 27. Ms. Salazar is running against incumbent Donna Shalala.

In an email Ms. Salazar states:

We are now seeing politicians in Washington behave like corrupt banana republic dictators.

Not only are they peddling a disturbing, socialist agenda that threatens our freedoms, they’re openly spewing hateful, anti-Semetic rhetoric against Israel, our great American ally.

And South Florida’s own Donna Shalala remains silent.

Ms. Salazar goes on to say:

Florida knows what socialism does to a country. Many of us saw first hand how it ruined the countries from which many of us escaped.

Many exiles, like my own parents who came to this great country from Cuba, know the pain of  leaving behind your life’s work and starting anew with only five dollars in your pocket. And we know how important it is to preserve the freedoms that we came to America to pursue.

I grew up hearing about the horrors and injustices of the socialist Castro regime which instilled in me a deep faith in and a desire to pursue the American Dream.

My career as a journalist has taken me all over the world – including to Latin America where socialism has run rampant for decades. There, I confronted dictators with questions they did not want to hear – and much less wanted to answer.

Despite the dangers to my own life I covered the wars in Central America because I am committed to the truth and bringing a voice to those who cannot be heard. This is a principle I stuck by when I returned to South Florida. I dedicated my tv career to providing an outlet for the voices of my community, Miami. I wanted us to be heard.

But politicians like Donna Shalala callously continue to ignore people like us.

For that reason, I am more committed than ever to bringing our fight to Washington. I will not be invisible. I will not remain on the sidelines. I will not be silent.

ABOUT MARIA ELVIRA SALAZAR

Born in Miami’s Little Havana to Cuban parents, who emigrated to the United States, fleeing Cuba due to the arrival of Fidel Castro to power. With only five dollars in their pockets, the pursuit for freedom and the American dream was instilled in María Elvira Salazar at an early age by her parents. While being raised in Miami and Puerto Rico, Salazar listened as her parents told stories of the oppressive communist regime from which they escaped. Becoming American citizens at the Freedom Tower, Salazar’s parents wanted a better life for their family; they wanted freedom.

The Real Existential Threat: Race And Class Warfare. Ask History.

“There is no essential moral difference between class-warfare and race-warfare, between destroying a class and destroying a race.”

That’s from Paul Johnson, maybe the preeminent historian of the 20th Century and as non-political as you can get, from his history book, “Modern Times: The World From The Twenties To The Nineties.”

After another two-night marathon of Democratic debates, it has come back to me as I am reading Johnson’s excellent, if dense, history tome.

A large part of the country has just accepted that we hammer each other on race and income. It’s just politics. No, it’s not. It’s both personal and eventually fatal. It is exactly — and I mean exactly — what Lenin did in creating and sustaining the Soviet Union during and after the Russian Revolution. In fact, that is who Johnson is describing in the above sentence, the killing machine of Lenin in 1919 who set the stage for one of the world’s greatest killing machines, Stalin.

That is not where we are, of course. But we can see what is coming up ahead around the bend by knowing what has happened when we’ve gone around this bend before. Violent eruptions don’t materialize for no reason. There are always preceding causes, usually growing over time.

Here’s the key takeaway: Irresponsible American politicians aided by an irresponsible media continue to create hyper-divisions in our country. Far from all the inane platitudes of “unity in diversity,” they actively seek to divide us from one another, then pit those divisions against one another for personal or philosophic gain.

I know some will be sputtering, but, but, but Trump!!! This just really needs to be understood. Trump is a reactionary figure, meaning he is reacting to what preceded him. I never predicted Trump, but I’ve been predicting something like Trump and certainly the clash at Charlottesville for decades. After Charlottesville, I reminded my wife that I had said this was coming, and there will be more if we don’t back off the race warfare. It’s as assured as gravity.

You cannot tell an entire race of people (whites now) that they are the root of our problems (CNN anchor Don Lemon literally did a few months ago stating, “We have to stop demonizing people and realize that the biggest terror threat in this country is white men” — I know, the irony) and not expect at some point there will be a reaction and it won’t be pretty. The reaction may be wrong, but it is predictable.

President Obama certainly played a role in fanning racial flames when he could have calmed them. Instead, he jumped to racial conclusions in Cambridge, Ferguson, New York, Baltimore and Trayvon Martin in Florida (claiming white racism in every one.) But let’s be honest, this long preceded him, too. He just made it worse.

Affirmative action and minority quotas in the 1970s really started this inevitable resentment ball rolling. It’s become much, much worse though as every single election cycle, Republicans and their supporters are labeled as racists and hating poor people. White Republicans want to put black people back in chains (Biden in 2012) and push grandma off a cliff (multiple Democrat ads.) Pretty astonishing but just commonplace — like the black plague was commonplace.

The class warfare of many Democrats, most notably New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (“I’ll tax the hell out of the wealthy”) but essentially all of them on stage the past two nights talking about “fair share” for the wealthy paying more, a misnomer if there ever was one. This whipped up division creates animosity to gather votes and power, using the American people as discardable pawns.

Karl Marx understood this formula. Lenin and Trotsky understood it. Stalin understood it. Mao understood it. Castro understood it. For that matter, and I hate to use the name, but Hitler understood it. They all played to the most base and ugly parts of human nature — the other guy is causing my problems!

This is a dangerous and deadly road, already well-traveled in history.

So let’s be clear. No one man is an existential threat to the nation, as the hyperbolic Democrat/media establishment is fond of saying today of Trump. That’s just nonsense. Our framers, who are also out of favor with the left, set up too great a foundational system of checks and balances for that.

But fanning race and class warfare is an existential threat, because it has the ability to destroy the foundations. We were headed in the right direction for a brief moment in the 1950s and 1960s (Martin Luther King’s dream that his children would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character) but for a much longer time we have been going backwards, and it’s really speeding up. Class warfare is running in tandem.

This can end in no good place for our country if the foot is not removed from the accelerator of race and class divisions. History makes very, very clear that we are heading for a cliff. The thing is, we’re all in the vehicle together.

How the 2020 Democratic Primary has turned into a Socialist Circus

Americans have now had four nights of debates from those 20+ candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for president. The Democrats during the July 31st debate began eating one another based upon their records. They began calling each other racists.

Watch this Kamala Harris, Joe Biden and Tulsi Gabbard exchange:

What have the people learned from these debates?

Perhaps it is useful to look back at what David Axelrod said on CNN after the first round of debates:

It does seem as if you’re running for president that you ought to take into consideration what the country wants. And the fact is large numbers of people oppose the Medicare for All proposal if it replaces private insurance. We’ve seen it in poll after poll, a large number of people in this country do not believe the border should be decriminalized. A large number of people in did country don’t believe that undocumented immigrants should qualify for public [aid]…

What Doesn’t America Want?

What America doesn’t want is what has now become a Socialist Circus of policies which include:

  1. Giving free stuff to illegals,
  2. Calling everyone a racist who disagrees with you,
  3. Open borders,
  4. Higher taxes,
  5. Fewer jobs,
  6. More and more government control,

What Do Americans Want?

Conservative Review reported the following:

On Monday, Heritage Action for America released the results of three different polls conducted by two different research firms in March and June. What do the numbers say? Nothing any Democrat charged with actually winning a general election after this far-left purity contest of a primary will want to hear.

The first poll, conducted among 1,200 likely voters in June with a margin of error of 2.83 percent, found:

  • 70 percent of voters, including 65 percent of swing-state voters, oppose the creation of a government run health care system like Medicare for All.
  • Independent voters think skills are are more important factor for legal immigration than family ties.
  • A plurality of Democrats, Republicans, and independents think the overuse of social services is the biggest challenge associated with illegal immigration (which is really bad news for the people who raised their hands to pay for illegal aliens’ health care).
  • 79 percent of respondents (including a majority of Democrats) said they believe that political correctness is a problem.
  • A 45 percent plurality of Democrats, Republicans, and independents think that abortion should be “illegal in most cases” with “some exceptions.”
  • 76 percent of voters said that doctors should be required to provide health care to abortion survivors.
  • 62 percent of respondents don’t think biological males should be allowed to identify as female to play on sports teams at school.
  • 30 percent of Democrats and 56 percent of independents surveyed think that the Democratic party has become too extreme, with 57 percent of respondents overall agreeing.

A separate “swing state survey,” which was conducted among 1,800 likely voters across the battleground states of Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Maine, and Pennsylvania later in June with a margin of error of 2.31 percent, found:

  • 63 percent of respondents said the border crisis is a national emergency.
  • 65 percent of respondents oppose getting rid of private health insurance to create a government-run system, including 40 percent of Democrats.
  • 65 percent of respondents in those states agree that “Socialism is a bad economic system that leads to bigger government, less freedom, worse economic conditions, and more welfare dependency.”
  • A majority of independents agreed that they “can no longer support the national Democratic Party because they have become too liberal in recent years by supporting radical ideas.”

The candidates for the Democratic nomination will have to change their tune or lose big in 2020.

As former President Bill Clinton said, “It’s the economy stupid.” As David Axelrod said, “It does seem as if you’re running for president that you ought to take into consideration what the country wants.”

President Trump simply needs to sit back and watch. He will continue to tweet, he will continue to listen to what the people want, he will continue to grow the American economy, he will continue to put American interests first and he will continue to lead the nation into prosperity for all.

Can’t wait to see the first debate between President Trump and the Democratic Party nominee.

Virginia: Muslim lawmaker who disrupted Trump speech had Hamas financiers as donors, wrote anti-Semitic posts

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 to multiple anti-Semitic organizations and is the son of a Hamas fundraiser.

Del. Ibraheem Samirah (D.)—who received sympathetic national coverage this week after alleging harassment for his Muslim faith at a town hall—has supported multiple virulently anti-Semitic and anti-Israel organizations, once speaking at a Hamas-affiliated conference.

Samirah is a vocal supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which seeks to use economic and political pressure against Israel. In a 2014 Facebook post, Samirah urged friends to support the BDS movement while Israel was “most exposed.”

As a student at American University and then Boston University, Samirah was an active member of Students for Justice in Palestine. He credits the organization with helping convince students that “Israel REALLY sucks.”

SJP relies heavily on American Muslims for Palestine, of which Samirah is also a part, for funds and logistics. According to 2016 testimony from Jonathan Schanzer of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, “AMP is arguably the most important sponsor and organizer for Students for Justice in Palestine.”…

“Ibraheem Samirah’s Donors Are Named In Israeli Government’s Report ‘Terrorists In Suits’ For Hamas Financing,” by Patrick Howley, Big League Politics, February 12, 2019:

RICHMOND — Democrat Virginia 86th district delegate candidate Ibraheem Samirah accepted campaign contributions from Osama Abuirshaid and Rafeeq Jaber.

Osama Abuirshaid and Rafeeq Jaber are listed as donors to Samirah’s delegate campaign, according to the Virginia Department of Elections. Samirah is up for delegate on February 19th, running against Republican Air Force veteran Gregg Nelson. Samirah erased his state senator Jennifer Boysko’s endorsement after his anti-Semitic posts came to light.

Both of these men — Abuirshaid and Jaber — were named by the Israeli government in a February 3 report on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement’s links to terrorism. Both of these men, Osama Abuirshad and Rafael Jaber, are top-ranking officials of the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP).

The AMP is spun off from a group that was found guilty by a federal court of providing financial aid to Hamas. Abuirshaid and Jaber were also part of that parent group.

Samirah was the featured speaker at this past November 22-24 conference for the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), which is named in the Israeli government’s report “Terrorists In Suits.” The AMP is alternately based in Falls Church, Virginia or Illinois, according to differing official addresses. Linda Sarsour was also a featured speaker at this conference….

Muslim lawmaker protests at Trump event: ‘You can’t send us back!,’” by Erick Ortiz, NBC News, July 30, 2019:

A Virginia lawmaker, who is Muslim, shouted “you can’t send us back!” briefly interrupting President Donald Trump during an event Tuesday commemorating the 400th anniversary of Virginia’s first legislative assembly.

Ibraheem Samirah, a Democrat elected this year to the state House of Delegates, halted Trump’s speech with a one-man demonstration as he held a sign that read “deport hate,” “reunite my family” and “go back to your corrupted home.”

Video from the Jamestown event showed Samirah being led out as some in the audience clapped at his removal while chanting Trump’s name.

In a statement later posted to Twitter, Samirah defended his actions, writing that “nobody’s racism and bigotry should be excused for the sake of being polite.” He added that while he was born in Chicago, his family came to the United States as Palestinian refugees and that his father in 2002 was “forced to literally ‘go back’” after he was denied re-entry following a visit to Jordan….

Sign Our Petition to Designate Antifa as a Terror Organization

President Trump tweeted over the weekend that he is considering designating Antifa as a terror organization.

Sign Our Petition Asking the President to Designate Antifa as a Terror Org by clicking here

Trump’s tweet comes on the heels of a resolution proposed on July 19, 2019 Senators Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy to designate Antifa a terrorist group.

“Antifa is a terrorist organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence,” Cruz said.

As noted by the president, Antifa is a radical Leftist group known for using violence to propel their agenda. Most recently, they targeted and attacked conservative journalist Any Ngo — among others — at a demonstration in Portland, Oregon, sending Ngo to the hospital with a brain bleed.

The violent group also bashed heads of other conservative demonstrators, including two elderly men who were severely hurt by Antifa members.

Antifa has a history of using violence against those who disagree with them. They previously commandeered streets in downtown Portland while the police were given orders to stand down, a decision supported by the mayor. At one point, activists chased down a 74-year old man after protesters pounded on his car and broke a window. A woman in a wheelchair was verbally harassed.

At another demonstration, Antifa was even more violent:

Antifa was also responsible for the 2017 violent demonstration and subsequent riots in Berkeley. Its members were reacting to conservative pundit Milo Yiannopoulos being invited to speak on campus. During the riots, Antifa members smashed the windows of a Marine Corps recruiting office after sucker-punching someone who voiced opposition to them.

The Senate Confirmed 13 Trump Judges While America Watched Democrats Debate

The Senate confirmed 13 judges President Donald Trump chose while America had its eyes on the Democratic primary debates Tuesday and Wednesday.

Though Senate Republicans had initially planned to confirm 19 Trump judges before leaving Washington, D.C., for August recess, they successfully confirmed four nominees Tuesday and nine Wednesday.

“For too long, fairly uncontroversial judicial nominees just like these have been held up and delayed by our Democratic colleagues even when the vacancy qualifies as a judicial emergency,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said during a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday, The Hill reported.

“Uncontroversial district judges used to be confirmed promptly in big groups by voice vote,” he continued.

Confirmations include the following district court nominees:

Karin Immergut for the District of Oregon, John Milton Younge for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mary M. Rowland for the Northern District of Illinois, Mark Pittman to the Northern District of Texas, Jeffrey Brown to the Southern District of Texas, Brantley Starr to the Northern District of Texas, Martha Pacold to the Northern District of Illinois, Jason Pulliam to the Western District of Texas, William Stickman IV to be the Western District of Pennsylvania, Michael T. Liburdi for the District of Arizona, Peter D. Welte for the District of North Dakota, James Wesley Hendrix for the Northern District of Texas and Sean D. Jordan for the Eastern District of Texas.

Republicans have confirmed more than 100 Trump court picks since 2017, including Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, as well as a record number of appeals court judges.

Trump accused Democrats of obstructing his nominees earlier in 2019.

“Democrats in the Senate are still slow walking hundreds of highly qualified people wanting to come into government,” the president said in a February tweet. “Never been such an abuse in our country’s history.”

Sections of the 2019 book “Justice on Trial” by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino reveal how 2016 Trump campaign lawyers consulted with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy in an effort to build a list of prospective Supreme Court nominees ahead of Trump’s election.

Has Ilhan Omar imported the ideology of a Somali dictator into the heart of American politics?

Studying the politics of Ilhan Omar I am struck by how similar they are to that of the brutal dictator, Siad Barre, who governed Somalia with an iron fist when she was young girl in that country.

When Barre seized power in a coup d’etat in 1969, following the assassination of the president, Ali Shermarke, he built a new political order, a one-party regime built on a mix of Communism and a local form of political Islam.

He abrogated the constitution within hours of his coup, and ruled the country by decree until he had time to redraft a new constitution.

Are we not hearing calls to repeal parts of the US Constitution by members of the new left in American politics?

The United Nations profile of Siad Barre explained, “The theoretical underpinning of the state ideology combined aspects of the Qur’an with the influence of Marx, Lenin, Mao, and Mussolini, but Siad Barre was pragmatic in its application. ‘Socialism is not a religion,’ Barre explained, ‘It is a political principle to organize government and manage production.’”

An organized Socialist government managing production is the underpinning of the new left of the Democratic party being promoted by Ilhan Omar.

When Barre grabbed power, Marxist sympathies were not deep-rooted in Somalia. In order to achieve his political goal, the dictator denigrated the opposition, did away with the previous governments law enforcement, replacing it with his own tough enforcement police and military rule.

Sound like the tactics of the radical left today in America.

We hear calls of the radicals within the Democratic Party to abolish ICE. We see the deliberate demoralization of the police force in major cities controlled by the Democratic Party as part of that process.

Ilhan Omar never explained what she meant when she described her father, a central influence in her life, as the Somali “teacher of teachers.”

It was a telling remark.

In Somalia, Siad Barre introduced a nationwide indoctrination campaign. He appointed teacher trainers whose job it was to indoctrinate the government-run education system into the dictator’s Koranic-Marxist-Leninist ideology.

This radical Red-Green political agenda can be found both in Britain with Jeremy Corbyn’s associations with Islamist forces, including the IHRC in Britain, Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian terrorists abroad.

We see it with Ilhan Omar who goes on fund-raising junkets not for the Democratic Party but for CAIR, the American branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and a co-conspirator for Hamas.

In Somalia, Barre moved from rule control to thought control. Civil servants were required to attend reorientation courses that combined professional training with the regime’s political indoctrination. Anyone found incompetent or politically resistance was fired.

The propaganda ministry reached into national broadcasting and local communities with loudspeaker announcements blasting the dictator’s political ideology in town squares. The regime’s brainwashing continued as they raped, robbed and ruined their country which descended into civil war.

Ilhan Omar may blame America for the turmoil in Somalia but it was the Barre regime with his accolade of apparatchiks that brought about the destruction of that country.

The regime set out to destroy traditional social structures and reduce the opposition to powerlessness by imposing its central control over the country. They depended on a compliant media.

Human Rights Watch issued a report entitled, “Somalia. A Government at war with its own People.”

The United Nations Development Programme declared,

“The 21-year regime of Siad Barre had one of the worst human rights records in Africa.”

The UN report on Somalia stated,

“The newly formed Ministry of Information and National Guidance set up local political education bureaus to execute the government’s message to the people and used Somalia’s print and broadcasting media for the ‘success of the socialist, revolutionary road.’”

These bureaus required teacher trainers to retrain teachers into the ideology of the regime.

It is legitimate to ask, was Ilhan Omar’s father, the teacher of teachers, part of, perhaps a leader in, the political education system in the service of a brutal genocidal dictator?

Was he the Josef Goebbels of the Somali regime? The opposition certainly did not have teacher trainers.

The slogan of the Somali Revolutionary Socialist Party was “social justice” and “scientific socialism” as they delivered an intolerant national injustice.

There was a mass dismissal of non-compliant civil servants in 1974. Ilhan Omar’s father apparently kept his job.

And what was the connection between Nur Said Elmi and Mohammed Omar in Somalia?

Ilhan Omar’s remark that her “very privileged life suddenly came to a halt” in Somalia reveals something significant.

As the civil war raged in Somalia, including torture, mass murder and the genocide of the opposition Isaaq tribe, no one in the people’s opposition to Siad Barre lived “privileged lives” in secure compounds.

Was it a coincidence that the Said Elmi family did not flee from their “privileged lives” in their sheltered compound in Mogadishu until just before the fall of the Barre regime?

Did Ilhan Omar’s father actively side with the war criminal Barre, or did he side with the people?

To me, at least, the answer is clear.

Another slip of the tongue, this time by Ilhan’s sister, Sahra, is telling. Following Ilhan’s election to Congress, Sahra celebrated by congratulating their father who, she claimed, was a “great political strategist and fundraiser,” and that Ilhan Omar’s victory “would not have been possible without him.”

One wonders where this talent and aptitude came from. Could it have derived from his professional experience in Somalia and his contacts with the Somali community in America, many of whom may have been on the side of the war criminal, Barre?

Is America turning a blind eye to people who entered the United States illegally and who aided and abetted a murderous regime?

Would it be disqualifying to have someone sit on the US Foreign Affairs Committee who is under the paternal political and ideological guidance of someone who could have been close to the top of a Marxist-Islamist dictatorship?

Why hasn’t the genocide committed by the Siad Barre regime, and all those culpable in the human rights and war crimes committed in Somalia, ever come before the International Court of Justice?

Ilhan Omar and her father can produce evidence of his role in the Somali civil war? Why have they been totally silent about the burning issue?

There may be no there three, but surely an investigation is warranted into the roles played by the senior members of the Said Elmi-Omar families in Somalia under Barre? She talks about her grandfather, but not of her father. Why? Especially if he is such a great political strategist.

It is clear that the political ideology of Ilhan Omar is not too far removed from that of the Siad Barre in Somalia. There are signs of a Red-Green alliance emerging out of Democratic politics. Perhaps a part of that derives from Somali politics.

Ilhan Omar hails from a country that never saw a Jew yet was steeped in anti-Semitism.

Omar never met a Jew in Somalia, nor in Kenya. She barely met a Jew in her Somali-community in Minnesota. Yet, she is a virile anti-Semite. It is a well-known cultural affliction throughout the Middle East.

Is Ilhan Omar the second generation of a family attempting to subvert the democratic system of their respective countries?

Does America really want that inflicted on the greatest democracy in the world in which the opposition party is increasingly tilting radically left?

President Donald J. Trump: A master at making opponents defend the indefensible

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945.


In the American Greatness article Donald Trump at the Overton Window  wrote:

Donald Trump is an equal opportunity scourge. He doesn’t care if you are black or white, male or female, if you behave badly and violate the public trust, he will call you out, baldly. And note this above all: If you attack him, he will attack you back.

[ … ]

Beyond the elements of political calculation and polemical style, however, Donald Trump’s recent tweet fests suggest that he may be on the threshold of shifting the Overton Window on race. [Emphasis added]

The MacKinac Center for Public Policy defines the Overton window:

The Overton Window is a model for understanding how ideas in society change over time and influence politics. The core concept is that politicians are limited in what policy ideas they can support — they generally only pursue policies that are widely accepted throughout society as legitimate policy options. These policies lie inside the Overton Window. Other policy ideas exist, but politicians risk losing popular support if they champion these ideas. These policies lie outside the Overton Window.

But the Overton Window can both shift and expand, either increasing or shrinking the number of ideas politicians can support without unduly risking their electoral support. Sometimes politicians can move the Overton Window themselves by courageously endorsing a policy lying outside the window, but this is rare. More often, the window moves based on a much more complex and dynamic phenomenon, one that is not easily controlled from on high: the slow evolution of societal values and norms. [Emphasis added]

The Big Lie: Your a Racist!

To paraphrase 1 Corinthians 15:55:

O racism, where is thy sting? O racism, where is thy victory?

Since the 2016 election of President Donald J. Trump Democrats have been put is a position of telling big lies over and over again. Among these lies are:

  • Trump/Russian collusion.
  • Trump’s obstruction of justice.
  • Trump Muslim ban.
  • Trump’s mental health.
  • Trump is a racist.

Each has been pushed by Democrats in order to keep the people from learning “the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.” The major consequence would be the re-election of President Trump in 2020.

The Democrats know that “the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” The truth about Baltimore, for example, is that the local, state and federal governments have failed miserably to give the people a chance to succeed for themselves.

The truth about Socialism is that it has never succeeded, ever. Socialism has, in fact, caused the death of tens of millions of people in Nazi Germany, the former Soviet Union, Communist China, Communist North Korea, Cambodia, Cuba and Venezuela.

President Trump forces Democrats to defend the indefensible.

President Trump is speaking the truth in times of universal deceit and by doing so he is masterminding a revolutionary movement first to make and now to keep America great.

The Democratic Party and its members have lost the full trust and confidence of the American voter. The “D” in Democrat stands for deceit.

In a July 31, 2019 email titled “The antidote to Trumpism” Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-MA) states:

Funneling resources from the most marginalized to the most privileged? That’s the opposite of what our economy needs to be doing.

That’s why our movement is fighting for an economy that’s judged not by how much it produces, but how broadly it empowers its people — an economy backed by a government that’s unafraid to set the conditions for fair and just markets. [Emphasis added]

Rep. Kennedy III calls this new Democratic Party economy “moral capitalism.” Moral capitalism is code for big government Socialism. Barry Shaw, in a recent column on Ilan Omar, notes, “The slogan of the Somali Revolutionary Socialist Party was ‘social justice’ and ‘scientific socialism’ as they delivered an intolerant national injustice.” Do the Democrats want to make America like Somalia using another”Big Lie?”

concludes, “It is a rotten, and a deeply un-American, spirit that has risen up among us. Donald Trump will not vanquish it single-handedly. But simply by tearing the scab off this festering infection, revealing it to all in its hideous profusion, he has earned the gratitude of everyone who values liberty and the boundless opportunities of what we used to be able to call, without embarrassment, the American way.”

President Donald J. Trump is clearly shifting the Overton Window on racism, Medicare for all, abortion/infanticide, immigration, giving illegal aliens public benefits, big government Socialism and taxation. His opponents are now outside of the Overton Window and are increasingly losing support among the American electorate.

Ilhan Omar, Jihadi Squad Islamic Socialist

“Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.” – Vladimir Lenin

“Contrary to popular misconception, Islam does not mean peace but rather means submission to the commands of Allah alone.  Therefore, Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression, as their speech and actions are determined by divine revelation and not based on people’s desires.” –  Anjem Choudary, British Islamist and socialist activist

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.”  Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister


Though Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution when they became members of Congress, their goal is to institute both sharia law and democratic socialism, neither of which are compatible with the Constitution and is anathema to their oaths of office.

Omar and Tlaib refused to place their hands on the Bible whose laws are incorporated into our Constitution; they were sworn in on the Quran.  When John F. Kennedy ran for the presidency, he assured the people his allegiance was to the Constitution, not the papacy.  We have had no assurance from Omar or Tlaib regarding their fidelity to the Constitution over Islam.

Our Founding Fathers were men who knew and studied scripture.  Their lives were wrapped in God’s Word; it was the chief source of their education.  They relied on the Bible and philosophers whose own works and commentaries also relied on Holy Scripture.  Scripture is what all laws are to be based upon, not the Quran.

None of the four jihadi Janes represent our Republic.  They are dangerous zealots.

Ilhan Omar

Just as Saikat Chakrabarti’s Brand New Congress (BNC) and Justice Democrats (JD) were major supporters of AOC, they also supported Ilhan Omar.  Here is the list of JD candidates for 2020.

Ilhan Omar ran for the 5th Congressional District seat in Minnesota, formerly held by Muslim Keith Ellison. The 5th district is home to 100,000 Somalis, the terrorist recruiting capital of the U.S.  Her campaign was supported by Our Revolution (closely affiliated with Bernie Sanders) and the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which held three fundraising events on Omar’s behalf in distant southern California.

Like her jihadi Jane sisters, she promotes the Green New Deal, (which is nothing more than U.N. Agenda 2030 on steroids), Medicare for all, tuition-free colleges, limits to the Second Amendment, the dissolution of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) along with open borders, murder of unborn babies up to and after birth, high taxes on corporations, steep cuts in defense spending, and a 90% tax rate for the wealthy.

Speaker Pelosi has appointed Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, the Education and Labor Committee, and the House Committee on the Budget.

Somalia born Omar graduated from North Dakota State University, where she joined the campus Muslim Students Association and eventually earned a degree in Political Science and International Studies.

Omar has served variously as an Advisory Board member for CAIR-Minnesota, Vice President of the Minneapolis NAACP, a Sister Planet Ambassador for Oxfam (International relief organization that condemns Israeli defensive measures against terrorism, and supports boycotts of Israeli products), a Board member of the Legal Rights Center, which provides criminal defense and justice services in particular to people of color, and the Director of Policy & Initiatives at the Women Organizing Women Network (inspires Somali women to get involved in the political process, a subgroup of Headwaters Foundation for Justice).

In 2017, Omar was one of only two Minnesota House members (out of 129) to vote against a bill to allow life-insurance companies to deny payouts to the beneficiaries of people who died while committing acts of terrorism.

That same year, she was one of just four House members to oppose legislation that would make it a felony for parents to subject their daughters to female genital mutilation, a common practice in some Muslim cultures.

Both Omar and Tlaib belong to extremist mosques and rub shoulders with those who wish to annihilate the Jewish State.  Their goal is to normalize anti-Jewish and anti-Israel sentiment throughout America.  Omar has come out in strong support for all forms of boycotts against Israel, but she can’t seem to do it without the start-up nation’s incredible tech innovations.  IlhanOmar.com is powered by the Israeli company WIX!

Ban Lifted for Omar

A 181-year ban on head coverings in Congress was lifted to allow this jihadi Jane to wear her hijab in Congress.  The rules package was passed by 234 to 197, and this was the beginning of the Islamic sharia makeover of America’s Judeo-Christian culture. Omar admits that she didn’t always wear her hijab; it wasn’t until after the attack on America by Islamic extremists on 9/11, that she chose to wear her hijab to make a statement.  The hijab is a symbol and it is a symbol of the fact that the woman wearing it is fully committed to the sharia.  It is a symbol that says to infidels that they are kafirs. Kafir is an Arabic term meaning “infidel.”

The only Omar photo without her hijab is a mugshot after being arrested in 2013 for trespassing and booked at Hennepin County Jail “to prevent further criminal conduct.”

Ethics Charges Filed

Now that Judicial Watch and Michigan State Representative Steve Drazkowski have filed ethics charges against Ilhan Omar for immigration fraud (using an unrelated family’s name), a bigamous marriage with her brother so he could obtain American citizenship, corrupt campaign financing and student loan fraud, she now has filed for divorce from the father of her three children.  The controversial Congresswoman has a lengthy record of utter contempt for the rule of law, of which she is now ostensibly a guardian.

Omar first married Ahmed Hirsi only in an Islamic ceremony in 2002 when she was 19, but six years later they “reached an impasse in our life together,” and separated. In 2009, Omar married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a British citizen, who has been identified as her brother.  Omar had a third child with Hirsi in 2012, even though she was still legally married to Elmi – who she divorced in 2017 and then legally married Hirsi in 2018.

Questions surfaced again this month in a state probe of campaign finance violations showing that Omar filed taxes with her Islamic husband Ahmed Hirsi in 2014-2015, while she was still legally married to but separated from Elmi.  She has declined to make her tax and immigration records available, but no one is demanding she produce them.

Her Real Name

David Steinberg published an extensive report on the alleged crimes and history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and the “Omar” family. In his report David found that the Omar family changed their name in order to enter the United States.

In 1995, Ilhan entered the United States as a fraudulent member of the “Omar” family. That is not her family. The Omar family is a second, unrelated family which was being granted asylum by the United States. The Omars allowed Ilhan, her genetic sister Sahra, and her genetic father Nur Said to use false names to apply for asylum as members of the Omar family.  Ilhan’s genetic family split up at this time. The above three received asylum in the United States, while Ilhan’s three other siblings — using their real names — managed to get asylum in the United Kingdom.

Ilhan Abdullahi Omar’s name, before applying for asylum, was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi.

Her father’s name before applying for asylum was Nur Said Elmi Mohamed. Her sister Sahra Noor’s name before applying for asylum was Sahra Nur Said Elmi. Her three siblings who were granted asylum by the United Kingdom are Leila Nur Said Elmi, Mohamed Nur Said Elmi, and Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.

On October 22, 2008, the U.S. State Department stopped accepting applications for the Priority 3/Refugee Family Reunification program — the process by which refugees can apply for asylum if one family member is already a legal U.S. resident. State halted the program because DNA testing — primarily of Somalis — had concluded that perhaps 87 percent of applicants were fraudulently claiming family relationships.

Steinberg has also exposed Omar supporters who were caught threatening and attempting “to dox a Somali whistle blower” who revealed Ilhan’s crimes.

Ilhan’s Father, Top Propagandist in Somalia

Omar’s father was the top propaganda official in the genocidal Barre Regime, thus the reason for changing his name in order to enter the U.S. illegally.  When he immigrated to America, he claimed he was a “teacher trainer.”  A teacher trainer in any revolutionary communist regime is the political commissar who trains teachers in the government-run school systems to impose the Qur’anic-Marxist-Leninist-Maoist-Mussolini hybrid of the Barre Regime.  Nur Omar Mohamed (aka Nur Said Elmi Mohamed), father of Ilhan Omar, was one of those indoctrinators under the bloody Marxist Islamic dictator, Siad Barre who was in power when hundreds of thousands of Somali people were massacred.

Somalian dictator Mohammed Siad Barre, whom the Omar family served.

When the Barre regime collapsed in 1991, the country was plunged into civil war, regime loyalists like Nur Omar Mohamed were not safe.  The family fled to Kenya, and then to the U.S. in 1995.

While some critics claim that Omar’s family migrated illegally to the U.S. because they did not disclose that they were communists, the Center for Security Policy claims that Congress, at the urging of the Clinton administration, abolished the law requiring that would-be immigrants declare whether they had belonged to a foreign Communist party. The Omar family was able to move to America without that important element of screening.

Jihadi Jane Ilhan Omar personifies the Red-Green Axis: an ideological and political combination of Marxism-Leninism and Islamism mixed with the technology of eco socialism.  She was raised in it.  The Red-Green Axis is strategic, as well as opportunistic. The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) now supports Black Lives Matter (BLM) and participates in its protests. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) also work with BLM, CAIR, and open borders groups.  Ilhan Omar has deflected any questions about violence from Antifa.

Omar interpreted for her grandfather, a Siad Barre servant, at political meetings. In high school, she became active in student politics.  From there, the Red-Green Axis import from Somalia, put down her own political roots, became a community organizer, and laid her path to the United States Congress.  Upon taking office in the U.S. House, she promptly joined the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Omar has never been critical of the Siad Barre regime or the horrors it inflicted during her childhood in Somalia.  Her father is not the only Somali war criminal who immigrated to America illegally.

Yusuf Abdi Ali is a convicted war criminal who did the killing himself.  Ali has been located in the US working as security at Dulles International Airport and driving for Uber in 2019.  He reportedly lived at one time in Alexandria, Virginia.  Ali was a Colonel in the Somalian Army’s 5th Mechanized Brigade in 1987 and was a graduate of the Pentagon’s Program for Foreign Officers in 1986.  He’s also a war criminal in response to his actions in Somalia.

Conclusion

There is a Red-Green Alliance of Islamists and the “regressive” left.  It is a racist war against American Jewry, the American-Israel Alliance, and the foundations of America’s Republic.  The Jihad squad fully encompasses this hatred, yet they use the “race card” against any and all enemies who go against them.  When our President wanted to stop immigration from terrorist countries, Omar said, “This ban on refugees is rooted in racism and Islamophobia.”

The left arm of the Democrat Party, the mainstream media, continually screams racism against our President.  The jihadi squad and their democrat comrades scream “white privilege,” which is equally racist in its tone because it stereotypes all whites, (something black people have long railed against when it comes to people of color) as over-privileged and undeserving of what they have, and this leaves them ripe for humiliation and white discrimination.

Just like Mandela’s apartheid plan in South Africa, the jihad squad plan is as old as the snake in the garden.  The armed struggle Mandela led was not to give every South African an equal opportunity to enjoy the fruits of liberty. It was a will-to-power struggle to give the Communists dominion over the country.  White farmers and their families are murdered daily by Mandela’s communist black rogues.

Mandela was the head of the Marxist African National Congress just as these four jihadi Janes are now the head of America’s Democrat Party.
