    US Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib retweeted a claim that “Israeli settlers” had “kidnapped and executed” a Palestinian boy. In fact the boy was found by Israeli emergency services dead in a cistern on Saturday morning after going missing on Friday. Nevertheless, some Palestinian social media accounts incited against Israel, with small clashes resulting in East Jerusalem. A Twitter account called “Real Seif Bitar” tweeted that the boy had been kidnapped and executed and showed a video of the boy’s body being found by emergency services. The tweet claimed that the boy was kidnapped by “Israeli settlers, assaulted and thrown in a...

    DAVENPORT, Iowa - Rep. Rashida Tlaib said socialist Bernie Sanders made her feel normal for being frustrated with the country's political climate. "He makes me feel - and many of you know what I mean by this - he makes me feel less insane," the Michigan Democrat said in Davenport, Iowa, on Saturday, referring to gripes, for example, with the country's healthcare system. She added, "We're not insane folks. We're actually real. We're humanists." **SNIP** Tlaib is accompanying Sanders on his three-day swing of the first-in-the-nation state. The pair will appear at a "Green New Deal" rally on Sunday in...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar accused President Trump of trying to create a "distraction" by killing Gen. Qassim Soleimani in an attempt to ignite a war with Iran. "So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction?" the Minnesota Democrat said Thursday on Twitter. "Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will."

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan appeared giddy on her walk to the House floor to cast her vote to impeach President Trump despite Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s calls for a “somber” vote. The “squad” member posted a video of the moments before she was set to vote for impeachment saying, “Hey everyone. I am on my way to the United States House floor to impeach Trump. On behalf of my incredible district. Thirteenth district strong. Let’s do this.” The congresswoman also posted a photograph of herself and Rep. Maxine Waters of California beaming with the caption: "MOOD." Tlaib’s jolly video stood...

    Al Arabiya English's Abdulla Almanai reports that U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was recruited by a foreign government, passed sensitive information that was relayed to Iran, and received funding by a foreign government, quoting a sworn deposition by a Canadian businessman in a Florida court. In video link testimony from Toronto, Canada to a Florida District Court on October 23, Kuwaiti-born Alan Bender claims to have ties with governments and royal officials across the Middle East including Qatar. He says he met Qatar’s Secretary to the Emir for Security Affairs Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad and two other senior Qatari...

    US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar paid her political consultant and lover almost $147,000 more for services than had previously been known, according to reports. The payments were in addition to hundreds of thousands of dollars she gave to the company which had already been reported. Omar's campaign funneled $146,713 into finance chief Tim Mynett's consulting firm, 'The E Street Group' for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and video production, records show, reports the New York Post.
  • Ocasio-Cortez forgets her talking points, gets tongue-tied, claims, '…so much going on in my mind'

    Apparently, the occasionally operating cortex kicked in yesterday, and the experience of mental activity temporarily threw Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez off her memorized talking points. She was in the midst of lecturing a crowd of Bernie-supporters, pacing around the stage with a hand-held microphone, engaging the crowd the way a fifth-grade teacher might lead along the children she is indoctrinating. But as she was building up to some sort of prepared punchline, she said, "Here's the deal" and then drew a blank. She actually used the expression "here's the deal" three times before coming up with the payoff.

    Democratic congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, three of the most influential voices among young progressive liberals, will all reportedly endorse Senator Bernie Sanders in his 2020 bid for presidency. In an article published on Tuesday evening, The Washington Post reported that two unnamed sources with knowledge of the plan said Ocasio-Cortez, 30, will join Sanders, 78, at a campaign rally on Saturday to announce the surprise endorsement. During the fourth Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, Sanders revealed that a "special guest" would join him in New York. "We're looking forward to Saturday," Corbin Trent, a spokesperson for...

    US Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested Monday that the press and her political foes are partly to blame for the demise of her marriage. “Ilhan and Ahmed have been the object of speculation and innuendo from political opponents and the media,” according to a statement from her lawyer, referring to the Minnesota congresswoman and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, and which the rep said he was issuing “on behalf” of Omar. “This has taken a significant toll on Ilhan, Ahmed, and their three children. “As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family,” the statement added.

    In October, President Donald Trump will be visiting the Minneapolis district being represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. And while beset with marital problems, rumors of affairs and claims she may have married her brother to skirt immigration laws, Omar took time to notice. On Thursday, the Trump 2020 campaign announced a Keep America Great rally at the 20,000 seat Target Center in Minneapolis on October 10. “Minnesota is booming thanks to President Trump and jobs are coming back to the state,” Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said in a release. “Since President...

    “We should do what any other country does, by dealing with this situation in a serious way,” Rep. Omar insisted at a public meeting in Minnesota– but the Somalia-born ‘Squad’ member was not advocating building a wall or adopting a robust policy of turning illegal migrants away, as sovereignist governments in Hungary and Italy have done, drastically reducing not only migrant numbers, but also migrant deaths. Instead, she demanded an outside entity take control of the situation, demanding: “[W]e have to bring in the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees – an agency that has the expertise and the training...
  • American Politicians Can’t Hide “Private Lives”, Ilhan Omar

    Ilhan Omar’s alleged affair with a married man in her employ is not strictly her personal business or guaranteed airtight protection under the claim of it being her “private life”. It is instead the business of every American. Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar obviously thinks that being a “woman of color” grants her the privilege of keeping her “personal life” off the public radar screen—a status that doesn’t exist for American politicians, ‘women of color’ or not. Activist politicians of our day work with social media to create and control their own digital image. In the case of active “Squad”...

    Radical Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was denied access to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) contracted facility earlier this month after she failed to request a tour. Tlaib then created a public relations spectacle, claiming she was unfairly barred despite showing up to the facility without notice.Earlier this month, Tlaib stormed the Calhoun County jail in Michigan with two members of her staff, two immigration attorneys, and a reported group of eight or nine people. Calhoun County jail has contracts with ICE.Tlaib tweeted that she was “denied access to tour the facility,” and received nearly 12,000 “likes” on Twitter.“If they...

    A Washington, DC, mom says her political-consultant husband left her for Rep. Ilhan Omar, according to a bombshell divorce filing obtained by The Post. Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett says her cheating spouse, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative... The 37-year-old congresswoman and mom of three paid Tim Mynett and his E. Street Group approximately $230,000 through her campaign since 2018 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, internet advertising and travel expenses.

It won’t get you anywhere because “It’s the kind of braggadocio that only bullies choose to use. “Rep.

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib came out swinging Saturday, saying President Trump was afraid of her and other members of “the squad.” “It’s been very clear to me, especially this last week, that he’s scared of us,” Tlaib told the Guardian in her first interview since declining Israel’s invitation to visit her grandmother on humanitarian grounds. “He’s afraid of women of color … because we’re not afraid of him and we’re not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda,” Tlaib said. The president uses attacks on the squad...

    Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) have remained silent after the Palestinian Authority banned LGBT activity in the West Bank. These members of "The Squad" have supported legislation praising the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and voted against legislation condemning it. PJ Media reached out to them for comment on the move, and they have remained silent. Early Monday morning, The Jerusalem Post reported that the PA and Palestine Police had outlawed LGBT activity in the West Bank and threatened to arrest members of the LGBT group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian...

    WASHINGTON — Allies of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and the other members of the so-called squad are expecting the progressive lawmakers to face potential primary challenges next year from more establishment-leaning forces, so they're working to shore them up politically now. The labor union-backed Working Families Party, which missed their chance to endorse Ocasio-Cortez during her primary last year, is now offering an unusually early endorsement for the New York Democratic congresswoman and the three other members of "the squad," pledging to back them in intra-party fights or try to dissuade challengers before they materialize. "They’re facing the combined institutional...
