Wait a second...isn't foreign influence on our elections supposed to be a bad thing? Illegal, in fact?
The head of Turkey's state-run television service is openly urging Turks to donate to the campaign of Ilhan Omar, the anti-Semitic congresswoman from Minnesota. JNS has the story:
Tarek Cherkaoui, the manager of the Turkish state-run news channel TRT World's research center, wrote an article in April calling upon Turks to donate to the campaign fund of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). The article was widely reprinted in the Turkish media.
The article, written for the English-language website of the Turkish pro-government daily Yeni Şafak and published on April 1, 2019, was titled "Media Flak Directed At Ilhan Omar No Surprise At All." At least seven other Turkish media outlets ran the article, in both English and in Turkish.

It is illegal for foreign nationals to donate to American political campaigns, but most of the readers of the article and its many reprints will be Turkish nationals.
In the article, Cherkaoui wrote that "donating money to Omar's campaign fund would be an adequate way of denying powerful organizations the power to censor alternative voices."
At a minimum, Omar should repudiate the idea of foreign nationals donating to her campaign, launch a screening campaign for donors who might be from Turkey, and insist that all the publications that published Cherkaoui's appeal inform their readers that donations from non-Americans to her campaign are illegal and will be returned.

This is interference in the US election. Not a word in the media.

Acceptance of foreign donations, when known to the recipient, is also subject to campaign finance law, and should be prosecuted as such. We may be pretty sure the donations would NOT be returned if the recipient is called to task for this transgression.

I know this is illegal, has anyone told them it’s illegal?
More importantly, does Ilhan Omar know it’s illegal?
Not that it matters, she has no respect for our laws.
She committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother.

Then I’ll start donating to a Turkish party that would be for democracy, free Enterprise, and anti government. Will that be okay, Turkey?

Our justice system is a joke because nothing will be done. Liberals always bundle donations and will take dark money from anyone,anywhere and at anytime.

All the lefty feminists should read this.....
Quran 4:34, 38:44
Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.
