Ted Cruz slams Ilhan Omar over now-deleted tweet on immigration

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex, called out Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, over a now-deleted tweet that suggested having a merit-based immigration system would disadvantage Latino migrants.

Earlier this month, President Trump unveiled his plans for immigration reform, including the installation of a merit-based system that grants migrants entry into the United States based on their trade, skill level, and education.

On Tuesday night, Omar slammed Trump's proposal in a tweet that has since been deleted from her Twitter page.

She’s out there drawing fire for the Islamist agenda.

It might actually be better to ignore her than draw attention to her over-the-top incendiary rhetoric.

She blew it. She should have called it “racist” without elaboration, making herself immune to criticism.

No. To ignore her and/or her ilk would be to create a void, and they will fill that void in an instant.

She’s a shill for the DNC... to say all the stuff other DNC leaders won’t say.

The DNC benefits by association with that language-AS IF they formally endorse it ... and in the end, it GETS SAID! The DNC has it both ways... their usual trick

Sure it would. That is the point to weed out the ones that cannot support themselves OR are in complete conflict with what the Founding Fathers set up.

Like mooslims. They should be excluded because of religious beliefs. Pure and simple, they conflict with our judeo Christian republic.

10-1 our Congress would never do this on basis of religion. They are too far gone.

I like the image of Marilyn Monroe as a sexual clown, currently reprised by AOC. You get the news you put up with. Don’t like piranha teethed pipsqueekettes, don’t read them.

I was a bakery foreman in the world’s largest bread plant. I wanted exclusively to have Mexican workers because they are the best, they have the highest work ethic in the world. Once they go thru initial immigrant poverty, they become the most solidly middle class people. Como se dice “bourgeoise” en espanol ? They are natural MAGA Trump supporters.

That's what the media does, I'd prefer transparency and light on this terrorist.

Return Ilhan Omar to refugee camp she longs for
Posted By Mychal Massie On 05/27/2019 @ 7:40 pm
In APP Frontpage, Commentary,Opinion

In their continued efforts to deceive the public, Muslim terrorist-sponsoring groups have engineered an Erebusic plan of subversion that has been successful in its early stages.I submit that they are in the beginning stages of packing elected offices with Muslim women who are, by all appearance, Americanized. These women do not view themselves as Americans – they view themselves as Muslims. The best example of this is Ilhan Omar, D-MN.

Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit reported this miserable person complained, during a recent House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, that President Trump’s administration is droning the Muslim terrorists “to death” in Africa.
Omar was engaging in word play when she referenced Africa.
The truth is she was bitterly angered because our military drones are killing Muslim terrorists in Somalia, which is a Muslim hotbed located in Africa. She continued stating she wanted to “Get into this horrific reign of terror and its spread in Africa.” She lamented that under “President Trump, the number of attacks” against Muslim terrorists has increased. She intimated that the number of Islamic terrorist attacks in Somalia have, according to her, tripled – and it’s because President Trump is killing Islamic terrorists there.

Omar demanded to know what was being done to stop the drone attacks, unambiguously claiming the drone attacks were singularly responsible for the increased Islamic terrorist attacks in Somalia. She said she was an “African” and “we” need to know. As she identified herself as “African,” she patted her chest in affirmation.

This Omar person is the vilest form of myiasis infesting our government today. Her reasoning is singularly loyal to Islam. It was clear by her questioning of the Pentagon official that her concerns and loyalty laid exclusively with the well being of the Islamic terrorists.

We the people of America view her remarks as an insult to our brave military members who were responsible for rescuing her Somalia village.

She came to America under a cloud of falsified documents, the belief that she married her brother to gain citizenship and rumors that the incestuous marriage was not only consummated, but that she bore children from him. As I said, these things are alleged; but with her kind of Muslim, history proves rumors about them are often true. At the very least, the rumors should be thoroughly investigated.

Omar made her way to America after being freed from a Kenyan refugee camp. She has publically reminisced fondly about her the four years she spent in the refugee camp before a path to America was found: “Omar said, she could express her full identity [in the refugee camp]. She felt free to be herself, living amongst like-minded people who looked and believed as she did. When you’re a kid and you’re raised in an all-black, all-Muslim environment, nobody really talks to you about your identity. … You just are. There is freedom in knowing that you are accepted as your full self. So the notion that there is conflict with your identity in society was hard at the age of 12.”

I find it interesting that as she waxed poetically about her time spent in the Kenyan refugee camp, she omitted the rapes and brutality that took place in same. Perhaps it is because it was reminiscent of her village in Somalia. But I digress.
Since she has such cherished fondness for being in a refugee camp overrun with filth and terrorist-driven Muslims, why didn’t she return there when she became of age? Why did she stay in America, a country she so despises?
I assert that she was kept here because domestic Muslim terrorist front groups like CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) are able to use her kind.

She/they can infest government and influence it to legislate favorably for Islam. She can use her congressional platform to advance their anti-Semitic agenda. Her kinds are wrapped in a veneer of feigned Americanism that enables them to get elected to office. Once there they are able to advance the agenda of Islamic terrorists.

In her native village in Somalia, would she be just another sheepherder? She would have lived a life of squalor and disease. And if she forgot her place, she could be publically beaten and/or stoned.

Omar ignores the fact that American military personal were killed defending members of her own family and friends who lived in the village of Mogadishu.

The film “Black Hawk Down” is based upon the true events that involved the very American military that Omar maligns today as being the reason for Muslim terrorists committing heinous acts that are consistent with what they are.

Maybe Omar would have been better off living in squalor as the personal possession of some goat herder with rotten teeth who took baths seasonally. I can say with confidence that America would be better off without her and her kind – specifically those being used by terrorist front groups to further the Muslims agenda.

Jubilant Somalis Drag Dead American Soldier Through Somali Streets
in a sickening display of Somali savagery and American hatred


Tom Field watched the news that day both fearful and transfixed as a U.S. soldier was dragged like a dead dog through the dust of Mogadishu by jubilant Somalis. Was that Tom? His Tom? "I can tell my son's face, and his arms," said Field, his voice still thick with heartbreak since the death of the 25-year-old Army sergeant from Lisbon, Me. "My two sons and myself was all looking. Right now, I couldn't tell you for sure."

On Oct. 3, Tom Field was among the U.S. Army Rangers hunting the underlings of Mohammed Farah Aidid who were plunged into a bloody urban battle that left 18 U.S. servicemen dead, 78 wounded and 300 or more Somalis killed. The awful events of that day changed everything. The death toll was terrible enough, but one single, sickening sight--a still photograph of a mutilated dead soldier, tied with rope before a jeering crowd--chilled many who had continued to think charitably about the United States' purpose in Somalia. Only four days later, President Clinton announced troops would withdraw from their mercy mission within six months, by March 31, 1994.

The withdrawal was not the fruit of victory; Somalia remained in deadly disarray. Instead, it was inspired in great part by the revulsion of the American people when they saw the humiliating spectacle made of that one slain soldier. And, still, who he was remains unknown. Which mother had kissed that face, or which wife that mouth with its crooked teeth? Who once felt warm in those arms? Of the 18 men killed by Aidid's supporters, five were reported missing until the Somalis returned their remains.

"They were the only ones that could have been in that photograph," said Navy Cmdr. Joe Gradisher, a Pentagon spokesman assigned to field questions about Somalia. Was he Sgt. Thomas Field, a skilled mechanic from a family of stock car racers whose father felt uneasy about his choice of an Army career? Was he Staff Sgt. William Cleveland, 34, whose military heritage dated back to a soldier who died fighting on the Union side in the Civil War, and whose ambition since childhood was a life in uniform, like his father? Was he Chief Warrant Officer Raymond Frank, 45, a pilot for 27 years who dearly loved flying?

Was he Sgt. 1st Class Randall Shughart, a 35-year-old from Newville, Pa., who so loved the military that he made his wife, Stephanie, promise never to ask him to quit? Or was he Master Sgt. Gary Gordon, 33, whose funeral in Lincoln, Me., the papermaking town he left 15 years ago, drew hundreds of mourners? The Pentagon's position is this: Naming the man in the picture serves no purpose, and would only pain those who loved and lost him. "They were American soldiers," Gradisher said. "That in itself is jarring enough. You don't need an individual's name to express horror at the treatment of the bodies."

Gradisher said he did not know if the Pentagon had even identified the soldier in that indelible photograph--taken by Toronto Star reporter Paul Watson and distributed worldwide by the Associated Press--or other bodies shown in television footage. The AP's effort to determine their identities required calls to relatives and others who knew the 18 men before the list could be narrowed to the five, whose names the Pentagon then confirmed. Most of those reached were these five soldiers' parents; widows had moved, had newly unlisted numbers or took refuge behind the shields military families learn to erect.

And some, who did not want to be quoted, said it was better to leave the grieving alone. Nada Morford, the mother of William David Cleveland Jr., felt that way at first. She knew her son's stepmother had told a Virginia newspaper she recognized David as the man in the AP photograph, but Morford immediately protested, saying it was not her son. "I want him to rest in peace and let him go," she said then. But Morford had only glanced at the picture in the newspaper weeks before, and the question gnawed at her. She went to the town library to make photocopies of pictures in a Time magazine article. And then she asked a reporter for the AP photograph.

She swallowed tears as she described how she pored over the pictures, how she found contours that seemed so familiar, but not enough for her to say with certainty the soldier in the photograph was her son. "My son had black eyebrows and eyelashes," Morford said. "He"--the soldier--"had light hair, black eyebrows." But then, she said, she noticed that the legs and feet resembled David's. "I would hate to say this is positively my son, and have it be somebody else's," she said from her trailer home in Peoria, Ariz. Then, she began to cry. In Clarksville, Tenn., Willi Frank thought she spotted her husband immediately in television footage. But even then, of the bodies she saw, she wasn't really sure which might be Ray Frank's.

The day before, she had learned Ray was missing. She studied CNN's continuous reports, mesmerized, sure each time she could pinpoint that achingly familiar indent of Ray's back surgery scar, the particular way he wore his short, graying hair. "At the same time you're looking for identifying marks, you're praying there aren't any," Frank said, reflecting on that endless day. "I picked out the one that I hoped was him, because it looked like it had been the least mistreated." Chief Warrant Officer Michael Durant, who was taken prisoner when his helicopter was shot down and later released, offers the five families at least some comfort: He believes all five men were dead before the Somalis got to them. But Durant will not publicly even attempt to put a name on the face in the photograph. "There's no way to prove beyond any doubt," he said, "so why put the family through what they've already been through?"

Many among the families of the 18 dead told of trying to learn whether the unknown soldier was theirs, of quizzing the battle survivors at the funerals. Some could barely speak for weeping; others said they found little relief in knowing the soldier in the picture was someone else's husband or son. "That picture represents every parent's nightmare," said Caroline Smith of Long Valley, N.J., who lost her 21-year-old son, Spc. James E. Smith.

When she buried her son in Ft. Benning, Ga., Caroline Smith learned from some of the men with him in battle that he had been shot and pulled inside a building. "Even though we happen to know that person wasn't our son," she said, "it could have been. It could have been."

Not only should Omar be kicked out, Pelosi should step down for endangering Americans.

Lookit how proud Nancy is of the creepy, evil-eyed, towel-head.
Pelosi obediently put the creepy Somali on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.....bowing to Omar's request.

Ilhan Omar----the harbinger of Democrat decline.

LOYALTY TO SOMALIA NOT AMERICA---Democrat Omar complained on the floor of the US Congress that President Trump has dramatically intensified American airstrikes in her native Somalia that have killed hundreds of members of the al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab.

REALITY CHECK I guess her Somali BIL gave her the script. Read on.

Omar’s brother-in-law, a Somalia official, tweeted on March 4: “Road to 2020/21 and national issues in #Somalia - current political agreement (4.5) is decaying, yet main governance systems/structures are not in place: constitution is incomplete, justice system poor, security absent, political parties not there...what gives?!”

This is embedded with some sort of creepy Muslim code......probably for more US foreign aid.....
Omar got her BIL a top job in the Somali administration. Read on.


Democrat Cong Clyburn said Omar "told him" she was born in Somalia, and had to flee the country to escape Somali violence,
and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the US.....this according to Clyburn.

Then why, as a frightened Somali given refuge in America, did she hurry back to Somalia to get her BIL a job?


This creepy Somali Muslim woman in our Congress has a hidden agenda no one could ever imagine.Omar has world-wide terrorist connections.

BACKSTORY-- Just a few weeks after her election to Minnesota's state legislature,
Ilhan left her American refuge to travel to her homeland she says she "fled in fear".
She was with then-Pres Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, a Somali favorite for re-election.
He reportedly invited her to appear beside him prior to the Somali election taking place.
That's the "frightened lady" pictured chit-chatting, setting up her foreign policy $$$$ Somali agenda.

No Longer "Fearful," elected US state rep Omar Endorsed Somalia’s New President. Four Days Later,
Omar's Brother-in-Law Had a Powerful Job in the Somali Administration. The US foreign aid is about to pour in.

What was the deal she made with the corrupt-ridden Somali govt? Are the violent Somalians she once fled,
privy to US security reports from Omar's current position on the Congressional Foreign Affair Committee?

You better believe it, guys.


A foray into foreign politics, should have disqualified her from getting US security clearance. ///Ever notice it's always "us" against "them."

They worm their way in saying they " want a better life:"
.....translation: gimme the the free money and all the tax-paid stuff available.

Assimilation is never on the agenda.

They get top jobs in govt, even cop jobs, get elected, but the agenda is strictly "Us-First"
......suing, screaming discrimination, throwing down America, and demeaning Americans.

The organized Somali Bund should be registered as foreign agents.

The only reason she would have deleted it is not because of criticism or push back but by using the word “Hispanics”, she is acknowledging that they arrive here without merit - no skills - no talents - no ambition except to take a place in the welfare line.
