Ilhan Omar’s opponent endorsed by her city's dominant newspaper
American Thinker ^ | August 6, 2020 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 08/06/2020 8:32:25 AM PDT by jazusamo

Newspaper political endorsements are almost meaningless in the internet era, but this one is different. The StarTribune is the largest newspaper in Minnesota and s with almost all metropolitan dailies, the Strib is progressive and supports Democrats. The paper has distinguished itself by largely ignoring the many irregularities in the personal and political history of Rep. Ilhan Omar, who represents Minneapolis, where the paper is located.

Scott Johnson of Powerline has distinguished himself with his best-in-the-nation coverage of Omar’s scandals and the abandonment of most of these stories by her district’s largest newspaper.

The abdication of the Star Tribune is perhaps the most notable element of this whole matter. The paper’s most read story of 2019 documented the deep fraudulence and dishonesty on which Omar’s career is predicated, yet the Star Tribune’s coverage of the primary race and related issues has been cursory at best. Minneapolis is at a tipping point and yet the paper’s editorial voice has remained silent on the madness in the DFL, of which Omar is the foremost proponent. The editors don’t want to be hated by Omar’s hateful fans. They want to be liked. Their cowardice is total.

I’d like to think that Scott’s truthful accusation stung the paper’s editors, but perhaps it is just their inability to stomach her channeling of vast amounts of campaign cash to her third husband whose firm serves as her campaign consultant and books its advertising, on which healthy commissions are paid. But whatever the reason, the paper has just endorsed her primary opponent in the lection slated for next Tuesday.

The DFL primary contest between first-term Rep. Ilhan Omar and Antone Melton-Meaux for Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District has become one of the fiercest in the country. After careful consideration and interviews, the Star Tribune Editorial Board recommends Melton-Meaux,...

Good, even the Star Trib can't stomach her.

But what about all the imported Somalis? I’m sure they find her to be just what they want.

I have a conservative activist friend who recently left Minneapolis. There is a large grassroots effort in Minneapolis to remove Omar. Many business owners are in the process of leaving, as well.

Must read link: German “humanitarian” learns truths about her infinite regret.

She enumerates all the negatives we’ve observed for years.

Too bad she got woked the hard way....thru horrendous personal experiences.

BTW, she mentions Somali refugees as the worst of the worst.

Melton-Meaux is far far superior to Ilhan Omar. She’s basically just an activist stirring up trouble as they do. This guy has a stellar and stable background even if he’s Progressive....

FBI Raid Reveals Muslim Brotherhood Plot to Destroy America
Conservative Base ^ | March 3, 2020 | NACOP Chiefs of Police - James Kouri
FR Posted on 4/8/2020, 7:32:31 PM by Jyotishi

During a raid by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Annandale, Virginia agents discovered what appears to be of a three-decades plan by upper-echelon members of the Muslim Brotherhood to “deconstruct” the United States of America through inside operations.

While President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Advisor Susan Rice all spoke about – and treated – the Muslim Brotherhood as a “moderate political group,” Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and other nations have added the Muslim Brotherhood to their list of terrorist organizations.

During the raid, FBI agents and forensic technicians uncovered frightening material that included blueprints for the Muslim takeover of the United States. Despite the Democrats’ penchant for defending terrorists, aiding illegal aliens and thumbing their noses at counter-terrorists and police, law enforcement officers, intelligence community and the military are warning Americans to be aware of this plot by the Muslim Brotherhood and do everything in their power to prevent Islamic jihad from occurring on U.S. soil, according to material emailed to the National Association of Chiefs of Police..

Twenty-seven years ago, Yusuf al-Qaradwai the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood traveled to America to organize Muslims across America, educating them with his plan for a complete takeover of the U.S that would take approximately 30 years to complete.

included a method of operation known as “Muruna,” in which Muslims are permitted to violate Sharia Law in order to convince Americans that they are just like us.

Now that we know the truth there is no longer any excuse to allow this behavior to take place. It is imperative that we do not lie down and take it. We have the numbers and it’s time to fight back. Our children’s futures depend on citizens’ obligations to the younger generations to show them what being an American is all about.

Phases of Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. Jihad
MCPS Vice President Noor Rabah dismissed the accusation that the group’s purpose was to “enforce Sharia law”:

“Phase One: Phase of the discreet and secret establishment of leadership.

“Phase Two: Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities (It greatly succeeded in implementing this stage). It also succeeded in achieving many of its important goals, such as infiltrating various sectors of the Government.

“Ilhan will have certain female support... “

I’m constantly reminded that the 19th amendment was a bad idea.

The “Muslim Caucus”has officially formed in the United States Congress and attached itself like a tumor to the far Left Communist Democratic Party, and held their first terror tied event on July 23-July 24 in Washington DC.

The new Muslim Caucus already has a website and extensive social media. Their first conference will be featuring an array of anti-American, anti-Semitic, and Trump disparaging terror-tied icons like Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and woman beater and Minnesota Attorney General, Keith Ellison, who resigned from his role as DNC co-chair last year.


THIS IS OUR MOMENT TO ORGANIZE AS ONE CONSTITUENCY During this historic time of a nation divided, we must defend access to the tools of democracy, which requires grassroots organizing led by Muslim Americans in Muslim communities, strategic coordination across states with year-round organizing to engage Muslim citizens to build their political power.

It requires capacity building and progress as a collective toward policy change and political education, as well as the patience to persist in the long-term work of building sustainable movements that can be linked with related fights for equality and justice within the multi-ethnic, multi-racial Muslim constituencies across America.

This is our moment to come together and organize as one constituency, bridge traditional advocacy, and policy organizations and grassroots groups to work together in building Muslim American Electoral Power at the local, state, and national level to build our power beyond 2020.

MEDIA INQUIRIES:CONTACT: Kawana Lloyd, 240-472-2860,; Nick Hatcher, 919-802-5663,

WEB SITE: According to the Muslim Caucus website, “A Caucus represent the interest of a specific group or constituency such as Blacks, Hispanics, Labor, and Asians, etc. within the Democratic Party. Therefore, the Muslim Caucus of America represents the interest of the racially and ethnically diverse constituency of Muslim American Democrats.

It’d be good to see her defeated. but the new guy is going to vote in lockstep with Pelousy. So I’m not sure what’s gained. This looney woman is useful for campaigning against the RATs. That’s just my pre-coffee cynical take.

. This guy has a stellar and stable background even if he’s Progressive....

...and that's the problem. She's a disgrace to her own party; he's going to be voting the same way, but won't be an embarrassment. Given those kinds of choices (a corrupt extremist vs. a smart extremist), I'd rather the Dem party continue to hose itself.

I agree with you. She’s so bad, she does more to serve the GOP than the DNC. She is a clear reminder of how far left the DNC has gone
