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.

 

Ilhan Omar at Bernie Sanders Rally: “I Am Beyond Honored and Excited for a President Who Will Fight Against Western Imperialism”

by Kristinn Taylor

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) decried U.S. “genocide” and “western imperialism” in a speech at a Bernie Sanders rally in Minneapolis Sunday night at the University of Minnesota’s Williams Arena. In her speech, Omar, who endorsed Sanders two weeks ago, accused the United States of “genocide” against Native Americans and said of Sanders, “I am beyond honored and excited for a President who will fight against western imperialism and fight for a just world. I am excited, I am excited for President Bernie Sanders!”

Sanders and Omar embraced on stage and then held hands aloft in solidarity before the cheering crowd.

Short excerpt from Omar’s speech:

The Sanders-Omar rally was moved to UM’s larger (14,625 seats) Williams Arena from the 2,700 seat Northrop Auditorium to meet demand. Sanders does not appear to have come any where close to a capacity crowd as the photo below shows the upper bowl completely empty.

Minneapolis a Hotbed of Somali Gang Warfare

Latest gang killing highlights crisis in Minnesota capital

By Dan Lyman – 10/29/2019

A deadly shooting between rival gang members in Minneapolis highlights the growing crisis of East African clan warfare in Minnesota’s capital region.

An operative of the 1627 Boys gang was charged with second degree murder after allegedly shooting a high-ranking member of the Somali Outlaws during a drug deal in Minneapolis.

Mustafa Ali, 25, was shot three times in the chest by 18-year-old Mahad Ali (no known relation), police say. Mahad Ali was also shot during the altercation and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Mahad Ali’s mother told detectives the two men had a long-running “beef” leading up to the shooting.

“The slaying was the latest in a bitter feud between Cedar-Riverside neighborhood gangs and their rivals, who claim the area around Karmel Mall,” the Star Tribune reports. “But police and community leaders say that some of the bloodshed has shifted to the city’s North Side in recent months.”

According to charges filed against Mahad Ali, “both gangs are known for retaliatory and escalating violence that often manifests itself in drive-by shootings, attempted murder and murder. They are known by law enforcement to attack each other over using the same drug dealers.”

In September, the father of another high-ranking Somali gang member was killed during an ambush that was reportedly “staged to look like a home invasion,” according to police.

During a single night in March, five men of Somali descent were shot in different incidents across Minneapolis.

Somali gang violence has plagued Minneapolis for well over a decade.

A 2009 CBS report titled “Rise of Somali Gangs Plagues Minneapolis” noted that seven Somali men had been killed in the span of 10 months, all by fellow Somalis.

“It was all gang activity, totally, 100 percent,” Shukri Adan, a former Somali community organizer told CBS at the time. “The police don’t want to say that but everybody else knows that.”

Victims of Somali violence are not confined to the local East African community.

In May, a group of Somali teens armed with hammers and bars reportedly attacked commuters at a rail station in Minneapolis.

In 2016, Dahir Adan, a 20-year-old Somali Muslim, stabbed 10 victims at the St. Cloud Crossroads Center mall.

Also in 2016, a mob of up to 30 Somali men traveled to the upscale Lake Calhoun neighborhood and prowled the streets while yelling threats of violence and rape at residents, according to reports.

“They were screaming at the house that they were going to kidnap you and they were going to rape you,” one resident told local media. “It was a very traumatizing experience.”

The International Institute of Minnesota estimates that as many as 150,000 Somalis reside in Minnesota, and that 80 percent are concentrated in the Minneapolis area.

CAMPAIGN 2020 – Foul-Mouthed Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib Endorses Bernie Sanders for President

The rabidly socialist ‘Squad’ wants this old white man in charge of America.

By Shane Trejo

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has joined her colleagues in the far-left Congressional ‘Squad’ of diverse freshmen legislators, and endorsed the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at an event in Detroit on Sunday evening.

The event took place at Detroit’s Cass Technical High School and featured Sanders and Tlaib along with local rock star Jack White. The entire event can be seen here:

“We deserve someone who wrote the damn bill,” Tlaib said to the crowd, referring to a popularized debate quote from the Vermont socialist regarding universal healthcare. “We deserve Bernie Sanders.”

“It always seems it is impossible until it is done,” Sanders said at the rally. “Don’t believe anyone that tells you that moving towards a society of justice is impossible.”

Sanders’ social media account also released a video of Tlaib heaping massive praise upon the old, white career politician.

The ladies of the “Squad” are clearly coalescing their rising media star power behind Sanders in the hopes to be power players within his Marxist regime. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) endorsed Sanders’ campaign earlier this month:

Freshman Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will endorse Vermont Senator and Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in a campaign rally in Queens on Saturday, according to reporting Tuesday night from the Washington Post.

The formal endorsement places Ocasio-Cortez firmly in the camp of her fellow democratic socialist. AOC has become a symbol of the left wing of the Democratic Party often represented by Sanders, and it’s probably unsurprising that the rising Democrat star would align with Sanders, who she aligns closely on policy.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the anti-Semitic and anti-white Somalian refugee turned Congresswoman, quickly followed the lead of Ocasio-Cortez and endorsed Sanders for president as well:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the Somalia-born Congresswoman whose offensive remarks against America and Israel have made her a reviled figure nationally, has officially endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for President in 2020.

“Bernie is leading a working class movement to defeat Donald Trump that transcends generation, ethnicity, and geography,” Omar said in a statement released Tuesday night. “And it’s why I believe Bernie Sanders is the best candidate to take on Donald Trump in 2020.”

However, it does not appear that the endorsements of the “Squad” are having as much of an impact on the presidential race. A state-wide activist group, Michigan Conservative Coalition, staged a protest at the Sanders/Tlaib rally today and noted how dismal the attendance was for the event in an Instagram post.

“We went in repudiation of socialism, and in defense of individual liberty,” said David Dudenhoefer, one of the protest organizers who is running as a Republican to defeat Tlaib in Michigan’s 13th Congressional district next year.

“Socialists can only offer a temporary band-aid in one hand, while they hold a knife in the other. Only through liberty can every individual find the best pathway toward peace and prosperity,” he told Big League Politics.

Following his recent heart attack, Sanders can no longer even run a competitive campaign for the presidency. The hardcore socialist has not been able to recapture his 2016 magic, when he posed a legitimate shot to beat Hillary Clinton. The “Squad” has likely picked a losing candidate.

THE SQUAD ENDORSES SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT

The Squad Endorses Socialist Bernie Sanders For President

AOC, Omar, and Tlaib all throw their support behind ailing candidate

  – OCTOBER 16, 2019

The outspoken far-left congresswomen known as “The Squad” are supporting socialist 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders for the Democrat nomination as his poll numbers lag behind Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.).

The Washington Post reported that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) – the leader of the Squad – will formally endorse Sanders for the Democrat nomination on Saturday.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) is also expected to make a formal announcement, according to CNN.

But Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has already voiced her support on Twitter and revealed that AOC and Tlaib are “on board” as well.

“Bernie is leading a working class movement to defeat Donald Trump that transcends generation, ethnicity and geography,” Omar said in a statement posted on Twitter by the Sanders campaign.

“I believe Bernie Sanders is the best candidate to take on Donald Trump in 2020,” Omar added.

Screen Shot 2019-10-16 at 2.59.34 PM

The endorsements are unsurprising given The Squad is vehemently socialist like Sanders. Though Warren also represents the progressive wing of the Democrat Party, she has repeatedly said she is a capitalist.

Additionally, AOC and Omar have both worked with Sanders on legislation to totally eliminate student loan debt and cap credit card interest rates.

It’s unclear if Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), the least-known Squad member, will will follow along with the rest of the group’s endorsement, but it seems likely given they stick together on most other issues.

The endorsement isn’t without risk on The Squad’s part — 78-year-old Sanders was hospitalized after suffering a heart attack less than two weeks ago.

Likewise, the endorsements will solidify Sanders as THE far-left socialist candidate in the Democrat field, which could alienate independents and moderate Democrats in the general election should Sanders win the nomination.

IN WAKE OF ASSAULTS ON TRUMP SUPPORTERS AT MN RALLY, MEDIA FRET WHETHER SOMALIS FEEL ‘WELCOME’

In Wake Of Assaults On Trump Supporters At MN Rally, Media Fret Whether Somalis Feel 'Welcome'

Whether Trump supporters were made to feel “welcome” wasn’t a question the Star Tribune felt was worth asking

Chris Menahan | Information Liberation – OCTOBER 15, 2019

A host of Trump supporters were violently assaulted by antifa mobs on Thursday night but Minnesota’s largest newspaper’s main concern is whether President Trump’s visit made Somali refugees feel “welcome.”

“Trump supporters are literally fleeing the event after it ended as protestors are waiting around attacking attendees as they leave the arena,” Blaze TV’s Elijah Schaffer commented after capturing one of the mob’s assaults on film. “It is not safe in Minneapolis any longer for Trump supporters.”

Additional video showed Trump supporters being sucker-punched and spit on in the streets.

The Star Tribune chose to either brush over or ignore these assaults.

Whether Trump supporters were made to feel “welcome” wasn’t a question the Star Tribune felt was worth asking, but whether Trump made Somali refugees feel “welcome” is a question they’ve asked twice now in three days.

From the Star Tribune, Oct 12, “Somali-Minnesotans wonder about their welcome after Trump’s speech”:

By Faiza Mahamud and Jessie Van Berkel

Abubakar Abdi skipped his usual after-work stop to visit friends at the local Somali mall on Thursday, heading to his Minneapolis home instead to catch President Donald Trump’s speech.

As he watched, the 22-year-old IT specialist said he was taken aback by the loud boos at the packed campaign rally when Trump mentioned Somalis.

“As you know, for many years, leaders in Washington brought large numbers of refugees to your state from Somalia without considering the impact on schools and communities and taxpayers,” Trump said at the rally. “I promise you that as president, I would give local communities a greater say in refugee policy and put in place enhanced vetting and responsible immigration control, and I’ve done that since coming into office.”

Abdi, born and raised in Minnesota, said the president’s words and the crowd’s reaction left him wondering: “What if my former classmates were among the ones booing? What if it was my former teachers booing?”

“I didn’t know we were hated like that,” he said. “Donald Trump is one man, but what scares me is the amount of support he has.”

Minnesota is home to the nation’s largest Somali population, numbering 57,000 in the latest census, though the current number is believed to be higher. Trump’s remarks about refugee resettlement and about U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, whom he called “a disgrace to our country” during his speech, stung and angered many Somali-Minnesotans, with some using words such as “dangerous,” “disgusting,” and “racist.”

The negative portrayal of people of Somali descent is making it harder for some to go about their lives without fear […]

Try walking down the street in a Trump hat.

[…] Trump’s visit also spurred anxiety and fear for many Somalis here.

The nation’s largest Muslim civil rights group and local Somali-elected leaders were sounding the alarm about the long-term implications of Trump’s visit, suggesting it could spark a fresh surge in hate crimes in Minnesota — home to the nation’s largest Somali community.

“We’re also definitely concerned about his anti-Muslim and anti-Somali language,” said Jaylani Hussein, who leads the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which had urged Muslim-Americans to join protests Thursday.

[…] State Rep. Mohamud Noor, DFL-Minneapolis, said it’s one thing dealing with Trump’s anti-Somali slurs and his hateful posts on social media about immigrants and refugees. But his visit to Minneapolis struck fear close to home, Noor said.

[…] State Rep. Hodan Hassan, DFL-Minneapolis, said she opposed Trump’s visit, asserting that it could have negative blowback on the community.

Hassan and Noor, both Somalis, said they had been going around the community to ease people’s fears. The two now plan to hold community conversations.

“Trump, his hate and his bigotry is not welcome in Minnesota,” Hassan said. “The Somali community here is strong. We know who we are, we know we are a valuable community here and we just want to make sure everyone is safe and protected.”

To address the fear and anxiety in the community, Minnesota Somali leaders said they are working with the FBI, have hired armed security guards to patrol Somali-owned businesses and are urging people to stay vigilant, particularly Muslim women who wear a hijab.

You gotta love how they explicitly say Trump is not welcome.

The Star Tribune publishes nearly this same exact article over and over and over again (and always in the wake of Somali terrorist attacks). Meanwhile, mob assaults carried out by Somalis and antifa rioters assaulting Trump supporters in the streets barely merit a mention.

‘ISLAM IS RIGHT ABOUT WOMEN’ SIGNS APPEAR IN AUSTIN, TEXAS

'Islam is Right About Women' Signs Appear in Austin, Texas

Progressives still confused about who to be offended on behalf of.

  – OCTOBER 14, 2019

Having appeared in numerous cities all over the world last month, signs that read “Islam is right about women” have now been seen in Austin, Texas.

An image of the sign was posted on The Donald subreddit with the caption, “Which of you beautiful bastards plastered these all over SW Austin last night? My next door app is blowing up with confusion. Absolutely hilarious.”

The posters previously appeared in Winchester, Massachusetts, causing a mini moral panic and the police to be called in to investigate.

They also popped up in Limerick, Ireland, prompting a local councillor to assert that the signs were intended to “incite hate” towards “either women or Muslims” (she wasn’t sure who).

null

The meme is a 4chan troll designed to confuse muddled leftists who attempt to support Islam and women’s rights at the same time without realizing how the two contradict each other.

What makes the meme funny is that leftists routinely react with outrage, but don’t know quite who to be outraged on behalf of.

If they find the message offensive, they can be accused of being bigoted towards Muslims.

However, if they don’t sufficiently explain why they are offended, they can be accused of being hateful towards women, given how some women are treated as second class citizens in Islamic societies.

“The result is that those who attempt to explain why the act is offensive end up simply tying themselves in knots, while revealing that they have never given a moment’s thought to the position they find themselves defending,” writes Alla Al-Ameri.

“This seems to generate even more anger, with the inevitable online mob quickly joined by politicians, journalists and other public figures, eager to see that the heretic is made an example of.”
