    Sounds like Rep Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) may be nearing the end of her political career if these accusations are accurate. In addition to recently being challenged by a Republican Muslim refugee for her seat in Congress, she's now being investigated by multiple Federal agencies, including the FBI & ICE. reports: Investigators with multiple federal agencies are reportedly reviewing evidence of alleged crimes committed by far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) that center around her marital history. The Blaze reported that toward the end of last year, “the Department of Justice had assigned an FBI Special Agent in Charge, or SAC,...

    A Muslim Iraqi refugee who previously worked as a war journalist announced she is running for Congress in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, meaning she will try to unseat Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar. In her campaign announcement video, Dalia al-Aqidi said she was fortunate to be able to come to the United States as a little girl with her mother to escape Saddam Hussein, who she described as a "brutal dictator." Seeing how terror had affected her family, al-Aqidi says in the video she was happy President Trump ordered the death of Iranian general and terrorist Qasem Soleimani. "I've gone from...

    At least three departments are reviewing what could be the worst-ever crime spree by an elected US official On Oct. 30, I reported that the Department of Justice had assigned an FBI Special Agent in Charge, or SAC, to review Rep. Ilhan Omar's apparent, astonishing spree of felonies from 2009 to 2017. Minnesota state Rep. Steve Drazkowski (R) had previously filed a complaint on the matter with the Minnesota District of the Department of Justice. That office — headed by U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald, a 2018 Donald Trump appointee — directed the FBI to review the complaint. An FBI SAC...

    As PJM’s Matt Margolis noted Wednesday, that paragon of patriotism Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Global Islamic Umma) “was seen laughing and joking around during a House Progressive Caucus press conference about Iran at the same time Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was talking about U.S. casualties in Iraq. In addition to laughing, at one point, Omar can be seen talking to Rep. Rashida Tlaib behind her, and appears to be joking and smiling, even when she turns back towards the camera.” But Omar wasn’t nearly as amused when, as Fox News reported Friday, “a northern Minnesota county on Tuesday night opted to...
  • Ilham Omar Lobs The Dumbest Reason For Why There Could Be A War Between U.S. and Iran

    Oh, you knew the Squad was going to chime in on this—and they didn’t disappoint. Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) have been railing against Donald Trump lawful targeting of Iran’s Quds force commander Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani. Soleimani was a terrorist with the blood of hundreds of Americans on his hands. He’s dead. We should be glad. Instead, the ‘hate America’ crowd’ is in an uproar. Apparently, only Democrats are allowed to kill terrorists and be rewarded for it. There are fears that this strike could spark a war. Iran has already vowed revenge...

Qassem Soleiman after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called the president a “monster" and accused him of committing "war crimes" for ordering the attack.

    President Trump blasted three of the four freshmen congressional Democrats known as “The Squad” in front of an audience of his evangelical supporters in Miami on Friday, accusing them of holding anti-Semitic views. “These people hate Israel. They hate Jewish people,” Trump said at the launch of his “Evangelicals for Trump” group inside a megachurch. […] Trump spoke to more than 5,000 Christians, including a large group of Latinos, at El Rey Jesús church, just days after he was the subject of a scathing editorial in Christianity Today magazine that called for his removal from office. Thousands of the faithful...

    **SNIP** Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York have promoted "Medicare for all," a federal $15 minimum wage, and social justice issues as cornerstones of a policy platform that helped elect both House Democrats in 2018. “We have the support of the majority of the public for the policies that we advocate for. And so we have to speak from a place of authority and power,” Omar told BuzzFeed. **SNIP** The Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairwoman, Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, who referred to Trump as a "combative racist" in 2019, said, "progressives are just the first...

    Earlier this month, House Democrats sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, urging sanctions relief for Iran. Among other things, they criticized "the designation of Iran's Central Bank under terror authorities," arguing that "the efficacy of sanctions is questionable." An organization long described as a front group for the Iran regime sponsored the letter and has embedded staffers with many of the letter's supporters in Congress, including Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). “Is Iran’s regime quietly infiltrating Congress?” M. Hanif Jazayeri, news editor at Free Iran, asked on Twitter. He pointed out that...

    On Fox News tonight, Mark Levine — a Democratic member of the Virginia House of Delegates — clashed with Raymond Arroyo — filling in for Laura Ingraham.— over the influence of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Democratic party. Arroyo showed comments Ocasio-Cortez made at a rally for Bernie Sanders, in which she said, “We’re here to say that what we’re living in right now is not an advanced society.” When someone in the crowd remarked “Why aren’t we calling it fascism? That’s what it is!”, the congresswoman responded, “It is fascism what we’re evolving into as well.” Arroyo asked Levine,...

    Roseanne Barr is apparently not a fan of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — calling her a “Farrakhan-loving…bug-eyed bitch” who is costing “hundreds of people decent-paying jobs” with her so-called Green New Deal. “She got paid to do that — paid to decimate communities,” blasted the former sitcom star in a rambling YouTube video. “Because they breathe carbon in their air or some horse s–t.” Barr, 66, fired off multiple obscenities during her 2-minute critique of Ocasio-Cortez — aiming most of the barrage at the Democratic congresswoman’s Green New Deal to combat climate change, as well as her support for socialism. “It’s...

    Over the last 10 months we have seen Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) struggle with keeping her caucus in check. Months ago, she made it very clear the House would not move forward with impeaching President Donald Trump because of the it was an issue that divided Americans. She lost that fight to the extreme progressives of her party, in particular the freshman “Squad” consisting of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). Even though she can’t control her caucus – or the very chamber she oversees – Nancy has a word of advice...

    During a town hall event Thursday, Rep. Ilhan Omar was asked if she would support a home guarantee and make a commitment to “building millions of social housing units.”Ilhan Omar replied that when she first came to America she was shocked to see homeless people. “It is a moral stain on our country that we have half-a-million or more people facing homelessness,” Omar said. She added, “In a few weeks, we are going to introduce our Homes For All legislation, which will, hopefully, guarantee a home for everyone by investing federal dollars in the creation of millions of homes.”Omar...

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) has received a lot of criticism for the surpassing crudity of her declaration about the President — “We’re going to impeach the motherf***er”– and in the last few days for offering the phrase for sale on a t-shirt — but less attention has been given to the company she keeps. As far back as her swearing-in, and at a private dinner she held that same day, many unsavory “Palestinian” activists were in attendance. It should be remembered that at her victory party, Tlaib wrapped herself not in the American, but in the “Palestinian” flag, and...

During the fourth Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, Sanders revealed that a "special guest" would join him in New York.

    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.
