    Madam Minitrue has relegated the story Ilhan Omar’s fraudulent 2009 marriage to brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi — the marriage was officiated by Christian minister Wilecia Harris — to the category of “domestic Russian disinformation,” akin to the far-out New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell. Ann Coulter is not taking the cue from Madam Minitrue.Ann takes the occasion of an Omar warning to issue a warning of her own. However, Omar is untouchable. She speaks and acts serene in the knowledge that the rules do not apply to her. She has gotten away with the metaphorical...

    State Department spokesman Ned Price answered questions about Afghanistan and Pakistan and said Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar is not representing President Biden or the administration in a trip this week to the region. Omar visited the disputed territory of Kashmir and met with former Prime Minister Imran Khan, who accuses the U.S. government of orchestrating his fall from power. The U.S. obviously denies the allegation. Khan said last week that Donald Lu, assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asian Affairs, led the "foreign conspiracy" to topple his government via a parliamentary no-confidence vote.

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., expressed outrage over a video of Christians singing on a plane, leading many Republicans to attack her for what they suggested was anti-Christian bigotry. Omar shared a video Saturday evening in which a worship leader with a guitar sings Christian worship music on an airplane. "I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane," Omar, who is Muslim, wrote with the video. "How do you think it will end?" Many Republican candidates responded, suggesting that Omar had expressed hatred or bigotry against Christians. "Why do you hate...

    A consulting firm co-owned by Rep. Ilhan Omar's husband, Tim Mynett, appears to be back in business after ostensibly halting its political operations at the federal level following controversy stemming from Omar's campaign shelling out millions to the company. The Minnesota progressive's campaign dished out nearly $3 million to Mynett's firm, E Street Group, before criticism had forced her to terminate the contract in November 2020. Mynett and his business partner then appeared to veer away from their political operation to consult wine and beverage companies. Mynett's firm, however, appears to have reopened the doors to its political business after...

    A non-profit organization called “Feeding our Future (FOF)” was stopped in its tracks this week by the FBI after using millions of federal dollars meant for child nutrition to instead buy “numerous vehicles” and 14 properties, according to the Bureau. FBI Special Agent Travis Wilmer wrote in an affidavit this week: “The companies and their owners received tens of millions of dollars in federal funds for use in providing nutritious meals to underprivileged children and adults. Almost none of this money was used to feed children. Instead, the participants in the scheme misappropriated the money and used it to purchase...

    Former NBA player Royce White said Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and other members of the "uniparty" have sold Americans out in an interview with Tucker Carlson. White will be challenging the incumbent Congresswoman as a Republican. "We've been misrepresented, we've been misled by the Democrats, by the liberal establishment, by the uniparty that sold us on this fantasy of globalism, which is just another way to attack the American working class," White said on Wednesday. "The telltale sign for me is the Fed," White said. "The Congress is supposed to regulate the Fed. The congress is supposed to balance this...

    The letter was signed by Reps. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.), Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Warren Davidson (R-Ohio), among others. Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) shared the letter on Twitter, writing that Biden should “follow the Constitution and the law.” “The American people deserve to have a say before we become involved in yet another foreign conflict,” DeFazio wrote. Lawmakers wrote in the Tuesday letter that the War Powers Resolution of 1973 has been abused by previous presidents, but they noted that the act restricted Biden from not only engaging troops in battle but also launching a...

OTTAWA, Ontario — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has pushed back against huge protests fighting expanding COVID jab mandates across the country, indicating that it will not only not back down on the restrictive measures, but will implement an additional inoculation requirement for truckers moving between provinces.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has vowed that if he becomes House Speaker, were the GOP to retake the lower congressional chamber in November, that Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Adam Schiff (D-CA), and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) would be stripped of committee assignments. “The Democrats have been creating a new thing where they’re picking and choosing who can be on committee,” McCarthy told Breitbart in an interview published Monday. “Never in the history have you had the majority tell the minority who can be on committee.” “If Eric Swalwell cannot get a security clearance in the private sector, there’s no reason...
  • [Democrat] House of Representatives Votes to Eradicate Blasphemy Against Islam

    American Thinker ^ | 28 Dec, 2021 | Arvind Kumar
    The House of Representatives has passed a bill which seeks to eradicate blasphemy against Islam. The bill, H.R. 5665, is truly remarkable as it amounts to Congress making a law respecting the establishment of Islam and reducing the United States government into a tool of the world’s ayatollahs. The actual text of the bill not only seeks to eradicate blasphemy against Islam around the world – and solely against Islam at that – but even requires the federal government to reorganize some portions of the State Department along the lines of an Islamic religious institution which will be responsible for...

    U.S.—As violent crime has skyrocketed to historically high levels, particularly in democrat-run cities, democratic leaders expressed shock and dismay at the rampant crime they have openly, blatantly, and very specifically promoted. “There is an attitude of lawlessness in our country that springs from I don’t know where,” said Nancy Pelosi after 18 months supporting local and state campaigns to pull hundreds of millions of dollars from funding police departments, while also urging officials to pardon violent criminals. “We are investigating possible causes, such as irresponsible retail owners displaying products that people want, or reckless republicans legalizing crowbars.” San Francisco mayor...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said on Sunday that Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-W.Va.) reasons for not supporting Democrats' social spending bill are "bull----" after the West Virginia moderate shocked lawmakers Sunday by announcing he was a "no" on the legislation. "Let’s be clear: Manchin’s excuse is bull----. The people of West Virginia would directly benefit from childcare, pre-Medicare expansion, and long term care, just like Minnesotans," Omar tweeted. Omar said Manchin's position was what progressive House lawmakers had warned for months — that the Senate did not have all 50 Democratic votes needed to pass Biden's spending package. “This is exactly...

    The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), filed a seven-page complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics against U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar for failing to disclose a lucrative book deal she signed in January 2019 in her Annual Financial Disclosure Reports for both 2019 and 2020, the latter which was filed on August 13, 2021. NLPC also alleges that she undervalued the worth of her husband’s political consulting company at less than $1,000 even though she reported that it may generate income up to one million dollars. NLPC also alleges that she omitted disclosing any checking or savings accounts. “NLPC...

    During a debate on a bill to combat Islamaphobia internationally, Rep. Scott Perry alleged that Rep. Ilhan Omar - the bill’s author - is antisemitic and affiliated with terrorist groups. The House parliamentarian found that Perry’s remarks were inappropriate and “not in order” with the House Rules and Manual, Yahoo reports. “Let’s face it: Aside from the attempts to placate an anti-Semitic member of this chamber, all that’s really happening here is that House Democrats are deflecting from the real issue confronting the House of Representatives, and that is that the maker of this bill has no business sitting on...

    Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was a “liar and a coward” for how he handled Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) calling Omar the “jihad squad.” Anchor Jake Tapper said, “I want to start with those comments, Boebert comparing you to a terrorist suicide bomber. What is it like to hear that kind of blatant bigotry coming from a fellow member of the House of Representatives?”

    Apparently, the way someone animates violence against a colleague matters more than the fact they’re doing it in the first place—at least, if you’re a Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives. About two weeks ago, members of the House censured Rep. Paul Gosar, an Arizona Republican who tweeted an animated video that portrayed him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat and progressive star. The video, to every Democrat’s mind and to GOP Trump critics Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, crossed a line. Privately, Republicans on the Hill have long considered Gosar a fringe figure whose casual...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Friday that Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) did not need to make a further apology for anti-Muslim comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and accused Democratic leaders of treating worse offenses by their own members with kid gloves. “What’s interesting to me, I didn’t get to watch Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi’s press conference [Thursday], did any of you raise the question when someone on their side of the aisle said I work with the Ku Klux Klan, referring to Republicans?” McCarthy asked reporters, referring to a tweet earlier this week by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)....

    Former President Donald Trump released a lie-filled statement on Tuesday demanding that Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota apologize for "abandoning her own country." "Congresswoman Ilhan Omar should apologize for marrying her brother, committing large-scale immigration and election fraud, wishing death to Israel, and for essentially abandoning her former country, which doesn't even have a government—Exactly what she'd like to see for the United States," said Trump in his statement.
