Ilhan Omar Apologizes For Anti-Semitic Rhetoric AFTER Speaker Pelosi And Other Democrats Chime in

House Democrat Leadership issued a statement Monday afternoon condemning Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), calling her anti-Semitic comments “deeply offensive” and insisting that the freshman lawmaker immediately apologize for her “hurtful comments.”

“We are and will always be strong supporters of Israel in Congress because we understand that our support is based on shared values and strategic interests. Legitimate criticism of Israel’s policies is protected by the values of free speech and democratic debate that the United States and Israel share,” the top House Democrats said in a joint statement. “But Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks, and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.”

Omar serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.  That’s as ridiculous as having Iran on the Human Rights Council at the UN.

The statement from Pelosi and the other Democrats who signed on doesn’t mention anything about potential actions regarding her committee assignments – probably because it’s all political.  Omar, one of the first two Muslim women in Congress, drew stern condemnation from Republicans and fellow Democrats Monday after suggesting U.S. support for Israel is fueled by money from the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC.

From Breitbart:

The Minnesota freshman has faced criticism for weeks over her positions on the Jewish state, but it boiled over late Sunday after she reacted to statements by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) in a tweet.

“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Omar replied, referring to American $100 bills featuring the likeness of Benjamin Franklin.

When a user asked who Omar believes is paying US politicians to support Israel, the former Somali refugee tweeted a one-word response: “AIPAC!”

The exchanges triggered an uproar. Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee of which Omar is a member, said: “Anti-Semitism in any form is unacceptable, and it’s shocking to hear a Member of Congress invoke the anti-Semitic trope of ‘Jewish money.’”

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) urged Democrat leaders to “condemn this anti-Semitism” and remove Omar from the committee.

Two Democrats, Reps. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) and Elaine Luria (D-VA), who are both Jewish, wrote a letter addressed to Democrat leaders, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), urging them to take “swift action” against any anti-Semitic language by House members.  The letter did not mention Omar by name, but it was pretty clear who they were talking about.

On Monday, after receiving intense backlash from members of her own party for comments on Israel and Jews that were widely denounced as anti-Semitic, Omar apologized.

Even in an apology over her bigotry, Omar insulted millions of Americans by mentioning the NRA as a problematic lobbying group.   Currently, there are about 5 million NRA members.  The NRA is one of the leading reasons why progressive tyrants haven’t yet turned us into another Venezuela-like failed state or a police state by their support for the Second Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms.

Democrats are now coming out of the woodwork to condemn Omar’s anti-Semitism, but I have to ask why they waited until now to say something?  She has been making anti-Semitic statements before and after she was elected to the House of Representatives.  Democrats waited until the fury over her bigotry grew so big they could no longer ignore it, and that is the real problem.  They are condemning her statements for political reasons and not because it’s the right thing to do.  If anybody thinks she apologized for any other reason than she was ordered to do so by Speaker Pelosi, I have some beach front property in Montana I could sell you.

European Reporter Reveals Collusion Hoax Has Its Origins with Soros-Funded Ukrainian Activist Group

This is hardly a shocker at all, especially since we already knew that Hillary Clinton colluded with the Ukraine to try to steal the election. So, finding out that Soros made the Ukraine his HQ for working to defeat Trump comes as no surprise. The Ukraine Crisis Media Center was founded in March 2014 by the Ukraine government and George Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation, created a news organization to control the spin and spread the propaganda. They prepared documents and reports that they passed on to Alexandra Chalupa, who served as Hillary’s back channel to the Ukrainian government.

From The Gateway Pundit

Serhiy Leshenko (pictured above) presented these ‘Black Ledger’ documents to the public on March 21, 2017 in the Soros-funded Ukraine Crisis Media Center, linking Manafort to illegal kickbacks totaling $12.7 million and even seeking to blame him for the deaths of protestors on Maidan Square 2014. The Ukrainian “anti-corruption” investigators even went so far as to hack the phones and text messages of Paul Manafort‘s daughters.

The Ukraine Crisis Media Center was founded in March 2014 by the Ukraine government and George Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation to give reporting on the Ukraine conflict the ‘correct’ spin. Soros has founded media lobby groups all over the world modeled on Media Matters for American, which he founded with John Podesta after the Lewinsky scandal nearly brought down Bill Clinton.

Leshenko provided this info to Clinton campaign staffer Alexandra Chalupa, as Epoch Times reports, who then passed this info on to Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff. Isikoff broke the story on Yahoo on Aug. 18, 2016, one of the first public mentions of purported “collusion with Russia” by the Trump team. Manafort had to step down as Trump’s campaign manager the next day.

Chalupa also passed the Black Ledger info on to Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS, who passed them on to staffer Nellie Ohr. Ohr passed the info on to her husband Bruce Ohr, Epoch Times reports.  On May 30, 2016, Nellie Ohr sent an email to Bruce Ohr and Justice Department staffers under the subject line “Reported Trove of Documents on Ukrainian Party of Regions’ ‘Black Cashbox.’”

SCOTUS Judges Appear Ready to Approve Citizen Question on Census

The Supreme Court has now heard oral arguments on the question of adding a question to the census on whether you are a US citizen or not and it appears that it will be a favorable decision for the Trump White House. This decision is of the utmost importance because everything revolves around the census. Currently, they have been treating illegal aliens equally with American citizens. Without counting illegal aliens, New York and California would lose seats in the House and with the new requirement, a state like Texas will add seats. The census count also decides how much money goes to each state and the new rule can cost them some big bucks.

From The AP

 Despite evidence that millions of Hispanics and immigrants could go uncounted, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority seemed ready Tuesday to uphold the Trump administration’s plan to inquire about U.S. citizenship on the 2020 census in a case that could affect American elections for the next decade.

There appeared to be a clear divide between the court’s liberal and conservative justices in arguments in a case that could affect how many seats states have in the House of Representatives and their share of federal dollars over the next 10 years. States with a large number of immigrants tend to vote Democratic.

Three lower courts have so far blocked the plan to ask every U.S. resident about citizenship in the census, finding that the question would discourage many immigrants from being counted . Two of the three judges also ruled that asking if people are citizens would violate the provision of the Constitution that calls for a count of the population, regardless of citizenship status, every 10 years. The last time the question was included on the census form sent to every American household was 1950.

Three conservative justices, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas, had expressed skepticism about the challenge to the question in earlier stages of the case, but Chief Justice John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh had been silent, possibly suggesting a willingness to disrupt the administration’s plan.

However, over 80 minutes in a packed courtroom, neither Roberts nor Kavanaugh appeared to share the concern of the lower court judges who ruled against the administration.

BREAKING: Sri Lanka Terrorists Had Sworn Oath to Leader of ISIS [VIDEO]

Well, police may not have figured out the motive for the Sri Lanka bombings but it’s not hard to guess, especially if you saw the video of the bombers swearing their oath of loyalty to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the Caliph of ISIS. I would consider this a real clue. ISIS had already taken credit and said it was to avenge the New Zealand attack. That was my second clue. Although I am risking admonition from AOC, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, but my guess is that it’s Islamic terrorism. Over 200 died in the attack with over 500 more wounded.

From The Daily Mail

ISIS has released footage of the Sri Lanka suicide bombers swearing allegiance to the terror group’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi before the Easter Sunday massacre.

In the video eight jihadists stand in a circle, touch hands and pledge their loyalty to the elusive ISIS caliph, who has not been seen in public for five years.

With a black ISIS flag hanging in the background, the attackers chant in unison before raising their hands together and pointing to the sky.

ISIS had earlier claimed responsibility for the bombings on Sunday which have killed more than 320 people and wounded hundreds of others.

The massive casualty toll makes the Easter Sunday attack the deadliest overseas operation claimed by ISIS since the group proclaimed its caliphate in 2014.

The group gave the noms de guerre of seven people it claimed were behind the ‘blessed attack’ that targeted Christians during their ‘blasphemous holiday’.

Three of the fighters, named as Abu Obeidah, Abu Baraa and Abu Moukhtar were said to be behind the attacks on the Shangri-La, Cinnamon Grand and Kingsbury hotels.

Another three, said to be Abu Hamza, Abu Khalil and Abu Mohammad carried out attacks on churches in the cities of Colombo, Negombo, and Batticaloa, the jihadists claimed.
