The news headlines is all about the out-of-control fires that are raging on the West Coast. That brings to mind that the fires, riots and lockdowns have one thing in common.  They almost always occur in Democratic-run states. We’re talking primarily about Washington, Oregon, California, Illinois, Minnesota and New York.

Some of these are also states where cities have defunded the police. As Ilhan Omar says, “You can’t vote Democratic if you support police.” I assume what she means by that is that the Democratic Party, at least the one that she envisions, will not support the police.

I wonder how Omar expects that the laws that she will inevitably try to pass will be enforced? The Somali Civil War might offer a clue as to what would happen if Omar gets her way. In that case, BLM and Antifa might become the new brownshirts.

 

Epilogue

Migration out of cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, Minneapolis, Portland and Chicago is accelerating.  Those that are moving can already read the tea leaves as these cities will all look like Baltimore in the not too distant future.

Ever noticed how everything has changed?  Things are completely different than what they used to be like.  Of course, politicians in particular seem to have changed their stripes.  Today’s headlines tell the story:

 

Headline – Analysis: Democrats Represent The Rich While Working Class Flocks To GOP

Comment – The Democratic Party has abandoned the working class (particularly, the unions) in favor of the rich and powerful, including Silicon Valley, Hollywood, the media and the Deep State government. It’s very telling when an insider like the Congressional Black Caucus says that AOC is the poster child for the rich, liberal white elite.

Headline – Watch Tulsi Gabbard Roast Hillary Clinton: “I Stand Against Everything That She Represents”

Comment – Well, they are both Democrats and yet they apparently are polar opposites.  So, which one represents the Democratic Party and what does the Democratic Party stand for?

Headline – Maher: The Clintons Have To Go Away

Comment: Well, I guess we know who Bill Maher thinks represents the Democratic Party, and it’s not Hillary.

Headline – Democrat Ilhan Omar (Who Sleeps With Her Political Staffer) Defends Democrat Katie Hill (Who Sleeps With Her Political Staffers)

Comment – AOC sleeps with a political staffer too and she also supports Katie Hill…because birds of a feather flock together.  Where’s #MeToo when you really need them?

Headline – CNN Analyst Nails It: Dem Reps Committed Political Suicide By Siding With Pelosi On Impeachment Instead of Constituents

Comment – It’s a matter of conjecture at this point as to what the political impact is going to be.  One thing that I’m pretty sure of, though, is that politicians of both parties no longer represent their constituents.

Journalism will never recover from the lofty Fourth Estate perch that it used to have. What passes for journalism these days is, in reality, propaganda and hit-pieces. Today’s headlines tell the story:

Headline: Ocasio-Cortez Insists Kavanaugh Lied Under Oath As New York Times Story Crumbles

Comment: AOC is not a judge and she certainly isn’t the jury either.  What’s worse, she doesn’t even believe in the Rule of Law.  After all, people are innocent until proven guilty.

Headline: New York Times Forced To Issue Major Correction To Kavanaugh Hit-Piece

Comment: Perhaps, the most egregious piece of journalism in recent memory. Retraction or no, the damage has already been done.  Let the lawsuits commence.

Headline: 2020 Contenders Called For Kavanaugh’s Impeachment Before New York Times Issued Correction

Comment:  More people who do not believe in the Rule of Law. Don’t expect they will apologize either.

Headline: Ilhan Omar: Benjamin Netanyahu’s Existence Prevents Peace

Comment: On Face The Nation, Omar addressed the Israeli people saying that she hoped Israelis realized that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prevents peace in the region. Last I checked, Omar didn’t even believe in the existence of Israel, with or without Netanyahu. What she is doing is meddling in the upcoming Israeli election.

Headline: Linda Sarsour Steps Down From The Women’s March

Comment: I never understood that an organization that is presumably about women’s rights could have as its co-chair someone who calls for Sharia Law, unless….

 

This stuff was really unfit to print, but they did anyway.

Question of the day

What do extramarital sex, lies and politicians have in common? Answer: They’re all immoral. Especially damning are the videotapes of politicians in the Epstein library.

 

Politics of the day

Are you getting as tired of all the name-calling in Washington as I am? Every day somebody is calling out somebody else.  Seems like everyone in Washington must be a racist. What is the average person to make of it?

The latest is all the fuss over Democratic congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar not going to Israel. Tlaib and Omar started the fireworks by holding a press conference to tell the world that they were being treated unfairly. Tlaib said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s move to bar her and Omar from entering Israel was unprecedented.  Never mind that Obama, himself, once banned a member of Israel’s Knesset from entering the U.S.

Note: Of course, Tlaib and Omar never mentioned that they are supporters of the anti-Semtic, anti-Israel BDS movement which was condemned by Congress and that their trip to Israel was organized by a Palestinian group which is also a supporter of BDS.

HBO host Bill Maher, a progressive Democrat himself, responded by saying that “BDS is a bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class.” Maher continued: “Let me read Omar Barghouti, one of the cofounders of the [BDS] movement. His quote: ‘No rational Palestinian … would ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’ So that’s where that comes from, this movement. Someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow, this side never gets presented in the American media.”

Tlaib responded by suggesting a boycott of HBO.

Maher fired back that, “But here’s the thing, the house voted 318 to 17 to condemn the #BDS movement, including 93% of Dems.  Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party?”

 

Commentary

At the press conference, Omar said that Israel was not a democracy.  Slight correction.  Arabs living in Israel are considered Israeli citizens with rights equal to Jewish citizens. Arabs vote in Israeli elections and are represented in the Israeli Knesset and on the Israeli Supreme Court, just like in a democracy. Omar also said that Israel is occupying Palestinian lands.  This lie has been repeated by others ad nauseum over the years.  You need to understand that there is no such thing as a country of Palestine.  Never has been.  The lands that Omar is referring to were ceded by Jordan to Israel as a result of the peace treaty which ended the 1967 Six Days War.  The lands have been in Israeli hands ever since.

However, I think that Dr. Qanta Ahmed, a Muslim scholar, made the defining statement with respect to this issue. It took a lot of guts because her statement is politically incorrect in today’s political climate. This is what she had to say about Tlaib and Omar:  “What you are seeing is full-blown Islamist propaganda. These are professionals victim-mongering women who unfortunately have been elected to Congress but are using every tool in the playbook of the Muslim Brotherhood … they are using Islamic tactic to invert reality….”

 

Epilogue

The one thing about Tlaib and Omar that Dr. Ahmed didn’t mention is that they are also agents of the Deep State (along with many other members of Congress).  It’s a dirty little secret that you’re not supposed to know about…but, of course, now you know.

 

 

 

In a political discourse, things are said, sometimes awful things even.  However, there is a fine line that should never be crossed.  Ilhan Omar has boldly stepped where no one has dared to go before.  If we don’t call her out for it, she will be emboldened to repeat it, potentially causing grave harm and division to the country.  In fact, it may already have just happened.  Let me explain why.

Ilhan’s background is that she’s a Muslim.  She hates Jews and Christians. Her anti-Semitic comments while in Congress (and even before) have become almost legendary…and she has been virtually unchallenged in order to keep her from making exactly those kinds of remarks publicly. Because she’s a Muslim, she believes in Sharia Law.  Accordingly, she does not support the U.S. Constitution. She’s from Somalia and not unsurprisingly she is anti-American.  After all, she believes that 9/11 was an event where “some people did something.”

Many people are racist.  However, when an elected representative of our government does it in public it has totally different implications.  There’s a reason why important people make racist comments in public; either because they are racist themselves or because they are trying to create a race war (or both). She even blames Trump for the recent synagogue shootings because, as she said, both shooters had explicitly expressed their opposition to Trump.

Ilhan actually has it backwards.  When is it okay to voice your displeasure with a sitting president by killing people? If it was okay, we would have close to half the voting public killing people after every election, no matter who won or lost. So, this kind of twisted logic has no place in public discourse of government officials. However, Ilhan doesn’t see it that way. She says whatever she thinks no matter how politically incorrect or slanderous it may be. That’s why she is such a dangerous person.  For example, just the other day, Ilhan addressing a group of black women said that, “This is not going to be the country of white people.” This type of race war rhetoric will continue until someone finally makes a stand.  Racism against white people is not an acceptable form of racism (there are no acceptable forms of racism), except to people like Ilhan Omar.

Omar is a revolutionary.  This is how revolutionaries act and talk.  They will only accept their own ideology and everyone else is racist, anti-Semitic and Islamaphobic. They don’t want to work within the system but would rather blow the whole damn thing up.  Their inflammatory rhetoric is designed to get others to act out on their own fears and prejudices.  That’s what really happened in the synagogue shootings.  The people who are to blame for the environment that leads to these kinds of mass shootings, is people like Ilhan Omar. Her blaming Trump is only a diversionary tactic so that people don’t blame her.

Free speech is only free when everyone is free to speak their mind regardless of what they believe in…except when it harms others (e.g. libel and slander). Ilhan Omar has crossed that line. History has shown that revolutionaries  either overthrow their own form of government or they die trying…and typically a lot of other people wind up dying right along with them. That’s what happens when you cross the line.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s interesting the different ways that different people have reacted to the continuing drama that is Rep. Ilhan Omar.  The latest is David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, an acknowledged racist and an anti-Semite. Duke publicly defended Rep. Ilhan calling her the “most important member of the US Congress.” So, now we have one racist defending another racist. Well, two because Louis Farrakhan supports her too.  For that matter, the racist Congressional Black Caucus group is defending her as well.

However, let’s be brutally honest.  All people discriminate and a majority of people are racist.  All races discriminate against other racial groups.  So, the majority of them are racist too.  Politicians?  Of course, they are racist, Republicans and Democrats alike.

While it’s not surprising that racism has reared its ugly head in Congress, it is surprising to see the way the Democratic Party has handled it.  Columnist Joel Pollak put it this way, “Five months after an antisemitic gunman murdered eleven Jews at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, the worst attack on Jews in American history, the Democratic Party is struggling to condemn antisemitism…Democrats cannot bring themselves to offer a simple, straightforward condemnation of the hatred of Jews. Nor can they find the political courage to punish Omar, who has repeatedly used antisemitic rhetoric even after objections from party leaders and intervention by her own constituents.”  Rep.Ted Deutch, a Florida Democrat, echoed those sentiments as he criticized his party’s leaders for their failure to  condemn Omar, “Why are we unable to singularly condemn anti-Semitism?” Yeah, tell everyone why.

So, do they deny that members of their Party are racist? In a word, no. Instead of condemning anti-Semitism, the Democratic Party would rather point fingers at the racism of others as a defense.  Of course, we understand that the people they are referring to may well be racist too. However, it doesn’t matter.  When you tolerate racism, that makes you a racist. The Democratic Party has spoken loud and clear with their House resolution on bigotry, especially with what it failed to mention. I can only imagine what the world-wide ramifications will be with respect to anti-Semitism now.  If we can’t defend minorities in this country, what might happen to them elsewhere?

 

Epilogue

The Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition, a distinguished group of American women from Middle Eastern descent, recently called for the resignation of Rep. Omar. So, apparently not every Middle Eastern Woman is an anti-Semite.  In fact, far from it.  Apparently, it’s only those in Congress.

 

“Racism does not have a good track record. It’s been tried out for a long time and you’d think by now we’d want to put an end to it instead of putting it under new management.”  – Thomas Sowell

The Democrats would love everyone to believe that they stand for social justice, but their actions belie their platitudes.  You just can’t say one thing and do another.  That’s the definition of political suicide.  Here’s the problem.

Rep. Ilhan Omar suffers from a serious political disease.  It’s called foot-in-mouth disease. She doesn’t even seem to understand the seriousness of her public comments. That’s because she is who she is – a racist pure and simple.  The question is what, if anything, are the Democrats going to do about her.

If Omar is allowed to keep her seat in Congress, it will signal to the world that the Democratic Party tolerates, and maybe even supports, racism. Motions of censure are pathetic, at best. If you are going to be the champion of minority groups, you have to be true to your beliefs. It’s sort of like #MeToo. It has to be applied equally to everyone and I do mean everyone.  Otherwise, people will see the situation for what it is – pandering for votes.

And yet…Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders publicly support Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Omar are best friends (politically speaking). So, who speaks for the average American regarding anti-Semitism? Who speaks for the Jewish people? Apparently, not the Democratic Party. Not anymore at least.

However, the racism issue doesn’t stop there for Democrats. Jussie Smollett has all but disappeared from the headlines, but the stain remains.  Democrats came out immediately and supported his claims before any facts were even available, and then backed away when the truth became known. However, they never publicly renounced him.  That’s the problem. So, the world sees the actions of the Democratic Party for what it is – tacit support for racism.

The Democratic Party is bleeding voter loyalty everywhere.  Hispanics are leaving because the Party supports unlimited immigration, costing them employment opportunities.  Blacks (Blexit) are leaving for a multitude of reasons.  Many blacks feel ripped off by Obama because he never really supported the black community (e.g. jobs, crime). They also oppose immigration for the same reason that Hispanics do.  Then, there is prison reform which the blacks say is needed because of legislation which discriminated against them, legislation which was the brainchild of then President Bill Clinton back in 1994.

So, while espousing their ideals for social justice and the improvement of the lives of disadvantaged people everywhere, the Democrats have proven that they don’t always live up to those ideals, not for Hispanics, not for blacks and certainly not for Jews. So, good luck writing the party’s 2020 presidential platform.  Who’s going to believe them?

 

Epilogue

So, the other day, AOC accused CPAC of Islamophobia.  Well, the context of her remarks was the deadly 2015 shooting in California carried out by Muslim terrorists. So, if being afraid of Muslim terrorists makes one a Islamophobe, then I suspect that we may have a country full of Islamophobes.  In a time of political turmoil, AOC chose to support Muslims, in general, and her colleague Omar, who is a Muslim, in particular instead of directly addressing the anti-Semitic remarks of Omar. Therefore, how long can she pretend that she, herself, isn’t a racist too?
