REP. ILHAN OMAR SLID LOVER’S CONSULTING GROUP $150K MORE THAN PREVIOUSLY KNOWN

Rep. Ilhan Omar Slid Lover's Consulting Group $150K More Than Previously Known

Feds allegedly don’t have manpower to investigate

Zero Hedge – NOVEMBER 18, 2019

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) funneled another $150,000 in previously undisclosed funds to her lover Tim Mynett’s political consulting group, within months of a New York Post report that the two were romantically involved.

“The 37-year-old Minnesota congresswoman’s campaign has funneled $146,712.63 to Mynett’s E Street Group since The Post in August reported allegations she was having an affair with her paid consultant, records show.”

“The latest payments to Mynett’s group were for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and video production.” – New York Post

Mynett had already received $223,000 through Omar’s campaign prior to this report, bringing his latest ‘take’ to a total of $370,000.

According to the Post, however, the federal agency charged with investigating the campaign finance complaint against Omar doesn’t have the manpower to investigate.

“This is something every American should be very concerned about,” said government affairs lobbyist Craig Holman with the watchdog group Public Citizen.

“We have no election cop on the beat. The Federal Election Commission essentially closed its doors so everyone knows they can pretty much do whatever they want to do and that’s the status of our political system today.”

The allegations of an affair, levied by Mynett’s estranged wife Beth, have been denied by both Omar and Tim Mynett. Beth claims Tim left her in April over the affair with the Somali-born US Congresswoman.

And after allegedly committing perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud – and potentially marrying her own brother Omar filed for divorce in October from her husband Ahmed Hirsi (not the brother) amid the allegations, claiming their relationship was ‘irretrievable.” Hirsi had reportedly been pushing for a divorce for months.

“Conservative watchdog the National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint against Omar with the Federal Election Commission in the wake of the bombshell report — seeking a probe into whether the Democrat used campaign funds to rendezvous with her alleged lover.”

“But because the FEC has only three of six commissioner slots filled and needs at least four members to vote on complaints — their hands are tied.”

“’It doesn’t surprise me at all,’” Holman said of the continued payments from Omar to her alleged love interest. ‘We literally have no election cop on the beat and we’re entering the 2020 election that promises to be the most expensive election in history.’”

“The FEC complaint focused on the fact that more than $12,673.43 of the payments to Mynett were simply labeled ‘travel expenses’ — a potential breach of campaign finance law which states that travel expenses be itemized.” – New York Post

For those keeping track, two members of ‘the squad’ are now linked to alleged inappropriate disbursements of campaign funds.

 

Texas Teacher Scolds Parents Protesting Drag Queens in School: ‘You Don’t Know What is Best for Your Kids’

This state enforcer believes your kids are his property.

By Shane Trejo

Texas teacher Anthony Lane has laid the agenda bare of what public schools are doing in regards to the LGBT agenda.

The English teacher at Willis High School recently took to Facebook to denigrate parents who believe that it is improper to have events featuring drag queens at the school.

“I believe that raising a child is the responsibility of the community, and that parents should not have the final say. Let’s be honest, some of you don’t know what is best for your kids,” he wrote.

Lane made it clear that he believes the parents should have no say in what their kids are taught, and that indoctrinators such as himself should have total control over the children’s minds.

“Parents believe they should be able to storm the school in the name of political and religious beliefs if something happens in the school that they are morally opposed to. They forget that we make a promise to prepare their children to live in a diverse world. We are not required to protect the misguided, bigoted views of their parents,” Lane wrote.

“If you want your children educated with your values, find a private school that will do it. The public education system is not here to serve your archaic beliefs,” he added.

Lane also spoke at a public meeting claiming that it was necessary for the high school to host drag queen events in order to fight supposed homophobia.

“I think as a district we need to make an initiative to teach our kids to be tolerant and respectful,” he said.

Last month, a drag queen showed up at the high school for a cosmetology class. Parents were not alerted beforehand, and it caused controversy after a photograph of the drag queen posing with students was posted on social media:

“I put numerous calls into the administrator’s office, which of course they made it abundantly clear they will not talk about it,” said concerned parent Dale Inman.

“I’ve got a problem when somebody with a false name enters a school and has advertised himself as an adult exotic dancer for men … Nobody would be allowed in a school under those circumstances,” he added. “As a parent, I have a right to know who’s in that school building.”

Drag queens have emerged as a linchpin for LGBT outreach to children, as drag queens regularly host events in places where they will have access to kids such as public libraries and churches. At least two drag queens involved in story hour presentations have been revealed to be convicted sexual predators.

Twitter’s ‘ban’ on political ads has a gaping, legacy media-shaped loophole

CAP

 

Trying to stay ahead of spurious allegations of enabling ‘Russian meddling’ into US elections, Twitter has outlawed all political advertising – but left an exemption most US legacy media, though partisan, will easily sail through.

“Twitter globally prohibits the promotion of political content. We have made this decision based on our belief that political message reach should be earned, not bought,” the company announced Friday, sharing the details of its ad ban.

Elaborating on the decision in a thread, Twitter’s head of legal, policy and Trust & Safety Vijaya Gadde effectively admitted that the ban was driven by concerns over digital advertising “driving political outcomes” – even though the effects of micro-targeted ads “are not yet fully understood.”

CAP

The ban is scheduled to go into effect on November 22. In addition to banning candidates, parties, and affiliated groups like political action committees (PACs) from advertising, Twitter is also ruling out ads that are about influencing votes, parties, ballot initiatives or elections. “Cause-based ads” will be allowed with certain restrictions, but again not when coming from candidates, parties or politicians.

If this sounds convoluted, banning both people and content, that’s because it is. However, the policy has a sizeable exemption for “news publishers” who can run ads referencing “political content and/or prohibited advertisers,” so long as there is no advocacy for or against.

To qualify, a publication’s website must have “a minimum of 200,000 monthly unique visitors in the US,” the ability to contact its editors and reporters online, have a searchable archive, and not be a user-generated platform or aggregator. Nor can the publication be dedicated to advocating on a single issue.

These parameters clearly skew the playing field in favor of US legacy media – despite its open partisanship over the past several years. Not only have the legacy media and Democrats blamed the social media for enabling the election of President Donald Trump, they have also led the charge in pressuring Twitter, Facebook and others to “deplatform” any alternative voices they might find unsavory.

As voice after voice gets purged from social media, still think there’s no censorship?

CAP

Most recently, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-California) actually demanded Twitter suspend Trump’s account as part of her pitch for the 2020 presidential nomination – so far, without effect.

In August, Twitter rolled out a ban on ads from “state-controlled news media entities,” using a convoluted definition that also carves out exemptions for well-established legacy outlets in the West.

(Full disclosure: Twitter banned RT ads long before that, without explanation or process, following the initial 2017 congressional hearings into social media platforms, and the revelation that it proposed a multi-million dollar deal to RT during the 2016 election, which was declined.)

The vast majority – about 86 percent – of Twitter’s revenue comes from advertising, with data licensing and other sources accounting for the rest. The company turned an annual profit for the first time in 2018, five years after going public.
