Rep. Ilhan Omar Makes Sure ‘White’ Suspect’s Race is Front and Center

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is facing backlash after her racially divisive tweet following the horrendous Boulder, Colorado shooting massacre. Posted within 24 hours after the man now identified as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa killed 10 people, Omar had this to say:

“The shooter’s race or ethnicity seems front and center when they aren’t white. Otherwise, it’s just a mentally ill young man having a bad day. Narratives drive our responses to awful crimes committed against innocent people, pay attention to these responses and who is targeted” Omar posted to her Twitter account.

Before discussing her tweet further, let’s not forget that Omar is the very person that undermined the terrorist attacks committed on September 11, 2001 when she passed it off as “some people did something.” She went even further as to say the Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR) was founded because after “some people did something,” Omar and others determined “that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

So, while Omar cries discrimination, it is she who is perpetuating the racial rhetoric. Omar brought up the race of the Atlanta mass shooting suspect Robert Aaron Long, who is white. In her tweet, the Congresswoman wrote it isn’t “hard to understand why it’s so normalized for law enforcement to protect the humanity of white mass murderers and their willingness to continually make excuses for them.”

Washington Free Beacon executive editor Brent Scher rebuked Omar for her tweet, saying the Boulder “shooter’s race and ethnicity was front and center yesterday when we didn’t even know what it was and just assumed it was white.” It couldn’t be more obvious that it is Ilhan Omar who gets to determine whether or not one’s “race” should be mentioned.

If the criminal is white, that fact must be mentioned and everyone else must be chastised for protecting “the humanity of white mass murderers.” If the criminal is not white, however, they shall be referred to as “some people” who “did something” and then an organization must be founded to protect their civil liberties.

      Not everyone in Minnesota thinks DC needs someone representing the values and hatred of Somalia. The only thing she likes about the USA is that it’s possible to be anti-American and still win an election.

    Right, Ilhan. The entire twitterverse was on fire with all the leftists saying ‘it’s ALWAYS a white guy’. Gotta hurt that it’s a Syrian Muslim extremist, huh?
    Using a tool leftists have never tried (research with an unbiased source),from 2002-2018, white mass shooters were 54% of the total. Whites are 62% of the population. Shooters correspond to racial/ethnic populations.
    WE can always tell when a criminal’s race is not given. It’s definitely NOT a white guy.

      The people of Minnesota should be ashamed of themselves for voting a racist representative such as Ilhan Omar into this position! She is a racist and she is a disgrace!

    Also, CAIR was founded in 1994, seven years before “some people did somthing”. Things like truth seem unknown to her.

Biden’s Energy Secretary Violated Stock Disclosure Laws 9 Times Last Year

A spokeswoman for Granholm said that the late disclosures were the fault of a “clerical error”

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm sold shares of stock 9 times last year between April to October, but did not disclose the sales “within the legally required 45-day window, according to federal disclosure documents”, reports CNBC.

The shares of stock were worth up to $240,000. A spokeswoman for Granholm blamed a “clerical error” saying the secretary paid a late filing fee. Granholm did not file any of the 9 disclosures until December after legal deadlines for all had passed.

The STOCK Act has been in place since 2012, which “expanded the accountability and reporting requirements for financial holdings, both for members of Congress and high-level employees of the Executive Branch like Granholm” reports CNBC.

“The news of Granholm’s apparent violations comes at a time when stock sales by public officials and members of Congress are getting a fresh look” reports CNBC. “During the past week, several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have introduced or reintroduced legislation that would effectively ban lawmakers and their immediate family members from actively trading stocks while the member is in office.”

According to an analysis by Business Insider’s Dave Levinthal published earlier this month, a total of 54 members of Congress violated the STOCK Act rules just last year alone.

CNBC reports on the suspicious behavior of Granholm:

When President Joe Biden nominated her to be his energy secretary, Granholm signed a detailed Ethics Agreement in which she agreed to give up part-time jobs at the University of California and at CNN, step down from several boards, and sell millions of dollars worth of stock.

On March 22, she reported 23 stock sales, many of them blue-chip companies she had more than $10,000 of shares in.

A few months later in May, Granholm filed more transaction reports detailing how she had exercised stock options in the electric bus and battery company Proterra and then sold all her shares, worth between $1 million and $5 million, on May 24.

But in between the March blue chip sales and the May Proterra sale, Granholm made 6 of the 9 stock sales that didn’t get disclosed until December.

Trump Says Reports On A Conflict With DeSantis Are ‘Fake News’

Published

Ron DeSantis

During a Fox News interview on Thursday, former President Donald Trump shot down recent reports claiming that there were rising tensions between the former president and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saying it was “fake news” and that DeSantis has “done a really terrific job in Florida.”

Trump’s comments came in response to an article from The New York Times claiming that Trump had a “long-stewing resentment” toward DeSantis.

“For months, former President Donald J. Trump has been grumbling quietly to friends and visitors to his Palm Beach mansion about a rival Republican power center in another Florida mansion, some 400 miles to the north,” The New York Times wrote. “Gov. Ron DeSantis, a man Mr. Trump believes he put on the map, has been acting far less like an acolyte and more like a future competitor, Mr. Trump complains. With his stock rising fast in the party, the governor has conspicuously refrained from saying he would stand aside if Mr. Trump runs for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.”

Hannity said that he was recently told that DeSantis does not think there has been “any conflict or bickering” between the two and that the report was “total BS” from the mainstream media.

“Is he right?” Hannity asked.

“Well, he is right,” Trump responded. “I get along great with Ron. Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right up front along with Jim Jordan, and all of the rest of them, they were fantastic. The Republicans really stuck together. And it was a great thing. And Ron was one of them. And Ron wanted to run and I endorsed him. And that helped him greatly.”

“And he went on and he’s done a really terrific job in Florida, and I think you know, Ron has been very good,” Trump continued. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news. I think Ron said last week, he said it very publicly, he says the press is never going to get in the middle of my friendship with Donald Trump, we’re not going to do that stuff. And he said it very strongly, I thought it was very interesting, actually. And very nice. But he said that, and I agree with him on that 100%. No, I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time.”
