    Ilhan Omar appeared on Face the Nation yesterday. The host asked about her “Some people did something” description of the 9/11 attacks, which was denounced by the son of one of the victims at a commemorative service in New York last week. Specifically, the host asked Omar whether she understands why people find her “some people did something” comment offensive. ... Yesterday, Omar repeated her view of 9/11, consistent with what she said to the CAIR group in California where the original comment was made, and with what I wrote in April. Yes, she said, the 9/11 attacks were terrible,...

    Controversial congresswoman says "existence" of PM is "contradictory" to peace, reiterates support for BDS.Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar called Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's "existence" a problem in an interview with CBS' Face the Nation program. "I certainly hope that the people of Israel make a different decision. And my hope is that they recognize that his existence, his policies, his rhetoric really is contradictory to the peace that we are all hoping that that region receives and receives soon," Omar told host Margaret Brennan. The congresswoman then reiterated her support for the anti-Israel BDS movement. "Just right now if you...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) says it’s simply a matter of time before President Donald Trump is impeached. Appearing Monday night on CNN, the Minnesota congresswoman said she was confident the president would be impeached despite recent polling that indicated 6 in 10 Americans were not on board. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said earlier Monday that, although he personally believed the president should be impeached, “we cannot impeach the president against the will of the American people.” Omar interpreted Nadler’s statement in a different way. She highlighted the change in public opinion during former President Richard Nixon’s impeachment proceedings,...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) called for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to be impeached on Sunday after the New York Times ran a piece Saturday alleging that an eyewitness saw friends of Kavanaugh push “his penis into the hand of” a female student at a college party. The Times later added to its piece on Sunday evening that the female student did not recall the incident, according to friends, and declined to comment:

    Ilhan Omar praised corrupt California for moving ahead with a bill to ban private prisons. The new legislation would come into effect after the 2020 presidential election “on or after January 1, 2020” and would prohibit California’s government from “entering into or renewing a contract with a private, for-profit prison to incarcerate state inmates.” Where will they put these people? They don’t care as long as it’s not in prison. The attack on private prisons is an attack on ICE detention. This is an important step. No one should profit from putting human beings in cages — especially in a...

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN) and show host of the popular Christian television program “Focus on Israel” which reaches a global weekly audience of over 2 billion, blasted rookie Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for her silence after the Adas Israel synagogue in Duluth burned down last Monday in an apparent arson. “The historic Adas Israel Congregation in Minnesota was burnt to the...

    Lightning-rod Rep. Ilhan Omar — who previously sparked outrage with a comment minimizing the 9/11 terror attacks — posted a somber video on Twitter on Wednesday commemorating the anniversary and recounting the “complete horror” she and her family felt following the terror attacks. “On September 11th we experienced one of the most horrific terrorist attacks that we have ever lived through as a nation. Today, we remember the victims, the first responders and their loved ones. #Neverforget,” the Minnesota Democrat wrote on the post, which included the nearly minute-long video.

    A man whose mother is a 9/11 victim ripped Rep. Ilhan Omar for describing the terror attacks as “some people did something” during the annual anniversary ceremony at Ground Zero on Wednesday. Nicholas Haros Jr., wearing a black T-shirt with the words “Some people did something?,” singled out the congresswoman and the other members of “the Squad” after reading the names of the dead, including his mother’s, Frances Haros, at the ceremony. “’Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota,” said Haros in reference to Omar. Amid some applause, Haros continued, “Today I am here to respond to...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., joined the chorus of voices celebrating former national security adviser John Bolton's departure from the White House. "John Bolton has been one of the leading proponents of making the world a more dangerous place," she tweeted on Tuesday. "Good riddance." Bolton, notoriously hawkish on foreign policy, was the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations during former George W. Bush's incursion into Iraq. He has widely been criticized by people like Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for pushing an aggressive foreign policy that resulted in long overseas wars.

    A closer look at what was on Tlaib and Omar's curious itinerary. There are many aspects of Rashida Tlaib’s on/off/on again/off again visit to Israel/Palestine that are worth examining. Let’s take them in turn. First, there is the propaganda value of the whole absurd affair – what some are calling, the matter of optics. How do things look? No one quite knows who has come out ahead. Many supporters of Israel think Israel looks bad for cancelling the trip initially, especially as Netanyahu is being depicted as “weak” for acceding to Trump’s request. Others think that whatever advantage the anti-Israel...

    A controversial Minnesota congresswoman known for racially inflammatory anti-Semitic views has publicly declared her support for a terrorist organization in her native Somalia. Democrat Ilhan Omar is demanding that a telecommunications company founded and operated by a renowned terrorist financier, receive protection from that country’s government and peacekeeping forces. An Israeli-based newspaper broke the story a few days ago, but the American mainstream media has been notably silent on the matter. The company, Hormuud Telecommunications, was created and is operated by Ahmed Nur Ali Jim’ale, a chief financier of al–Shabaab, an east African-based jihadist group that serves as Al Qaeda’s...

    Could the strange, on-again-off-again marriage of Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi be heading for court? Perhaps in more ways than one, although the New York Post’s sources are sticking to the obvious route for now. Hirsi now plans to file for divorce, the paper reports, after allegations of an affair between the congresswoman and her political consultant went public in the latter’s own divorce action.This would be the second split between Omar and Hirsi … officially, anyway: The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she...

    MINNEAPOLIS — Rep. Ilhan Omar’s marriage appears to be headed for the rocks, a longtime friend of the couple told The Post. The congresswoman’s husband, Ahmed Hirsi, the source said, is poised to file for divorce after the revelation in a bombshell court filing that she allegedly had an affair with DC political consultant Tim Mynett. The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she didn’t want to file the papers — but Hirsi refused, telling her if she wanted a divorce she should do it herself,...

    Al-Shabaab is responsible for many terrible terror attacks. A couple of examples are: the 2015 attack on the University of Kenya in which 147 people were killed and 79 others were injured, and the attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi in which 59 innocents were killed and 150 were injured. In other words, we're truly talking about one of the worst and most bloodthirsty terror groups in the entire world. As such, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Al-Shabaab is linked to Al-Qaeda.What is surprising, however, is that a company that's known for providing financial...

    Of all the scandals in which Ilhan Omar is enmeshed, one might think the Daily Mail’s revelation this past July of her affair with political consultant Tim Mynett would be the least of them. The news last week of Beth Mynett’s divorce filing, however, has begun to disillusion a Somali community that has taken Omar at face value. Not cool — not cool at all, and it has thrown Omar off her game. Omar’s denial of the affair is a lie that is both obvious and bald-faced. She has therefore run from the tabloid newspapers and the local media as...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar dodged questions on Thursday about her alleged affair with a DC political consultant who’s on her payroll. The freshman Democratic congresswoman appeared ahead of a scheduled event at the University of Minnesota when a Post reporter asked her about claims she broke up the marriage of Tim and Beth Mynett. But instead of answering, Omar nervously made a beeline to make small talk with a police officer ... Omar has paid Tim Mynett’s E Street Group consulting firm $230,000 since 2018 — raising concerns of potential ethics violations.
