Rep. Omar Fundraising on Anti-Israel Premise she is Working for a ‘More Peaceful world’

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

Democratic Congressional Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has, alongside her anti-Israel colleagues and members of the ‘squad,’ been tweeting in support of Hamas as they continuously launch rockets into Israel this week.

Omar is now taking advantage of the criticism she received for her anti-Israel sentiments and capitalizing on it. Omar launched a fundraiser on Facebook, in which the ad from her campaign read, “A whole bunch of radical right-wingers – from Ted Cruz to Donald Trump – are angry at Ilhan for bringing to light violence against the Palestinian people during the holy month of Ramadan.”

“Will you donate $5, $10, or $20 now to support her campaign? Ilhan will never let up her work for a more peaceful world. It’s thanks to your support that she is able to give voice to the issue of human rights violations here and abroad” the campaign adds.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas accused Omar of acting as a “press secretary for Hamas.” Additional squad members’ comments on the violent attacks against Israel include Representative Rashida Tlaib of Michigan saying Israel is “promoting racism and dehumanization” under an “apartheid system” that discriminates against Palestinians.

New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was upset that Biden declared Israel had the right to defend itself, saying, the president gave little context to the situation and was “siding with the occupation.”

When Democrat and former presidential candidate Andrew Yang posted “I’m standing with the people of Israel who are coming under bombardment attacks, and condemn the Hamas terrorists” he later walked back his comments due to backlash from Omar and the progressive squad members.

    As usual, Cruz is absolutely correct. Omar has a twisted sense of right and wrong. Israel was recognized as a sovereign nation and if Trump were still in the WH the two nations would be sitting at the same table hammering out their differences. This is a complex situation that is being used to test JB and of course, he’s failing to step up to the plate to defend the US and its citizens. JB’s administration is the biggest, sickest, saddest joke of all time. God will set these people straight and it will get really ugly for all of them.

      Marcia, you are right on! The raghead of “the Squad” has no damn right to criticize Israel. As a Muslim, she has it in her genes to despise anything or anyone Israeli. SHE, who married her brother to give him citizenship; SHE, whose husband is said to use for his no-good deeds her campaign funds! However, as another Democrat, idiot Ilhan can do no wrong. She needs to be sent to China, never to return, to be thrown into the labor camps where the Chinese government is now holding thousands of Muslims. What a WITCH with a capital B! I despise her RACIST behavior along with her 3 other comrades who call everyone else “racist”. We do not need, and should expel, every Democrat in this Socialist, corrupt “administration” who STOLE and RIGGED the 2020 presidential election. I have decided that the worst, most despicable name one can call another is “Democrat”. I have made that my mantra. Raghead idiot Ilhan has no right whatsoever to remain in this country. She’s damned lucky, and she knows it, to be able to speak her wretched, racist mind and have this corrupt “administration” back her up. I believe that anyone who despises our wonderful, magnanimous country is a traitor and should be executed.

    She needs to be removed from Congress. If the law allows they should put her on trial for being a traitor and aiding and abetting terrorism.

    Yang had a chance to be the better man, and instead sided with the leftist nutjobs. Terrorism is terrorism… and it needs to be punished.

Iran Launches Missile Into Space As Biden Admin Fails To Negotiate New Nuclear Deal

Published

Joe Biden

On Sunday, Iran’s state television announced that the country had launched a solid-fueled rocket into space, drawing criticism from the United States ahead of plans for continued negotiations over the Iranian nuclear deal.

“It’s unclear when or where the rocket was launched, but the announcement came after satellite photos showed preparations at Imam Khomeini Spaceport in Iran’s rural Semnan province, the site of Iran’s frequent failed attempts to put a satellite into orbit,” the Associated Press reported. “Iran had previously acknowledged that it planned more tests for the satellite-carrying rocket, which it first launched in February of last year.”

“Ahmad Hosseini, spokesman for Iran’s Defense Ministry, said Zuljanah, a 25.5 meter-long rocket, was capable of carrying a satellite of 220 kilograms (485 pounds) that would ultimately gather data in low-earth orbit and promote Iran’s space industry. Zuljanah is named for the horse of Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad,” the Associated Press added.

According to the report, the White House is aware of Iran’s announcement and said the move was “unhelpful and destabilizing.”

Iran’s state-run media aired dramatic footage of the missile launch amid heightened tensions over Iran’s nuclear program, which has accelerated as President Biden’s administration has failed to negotiate a new nuclear deal with Iran.

According to a report earlier this year, three Biden administration negotiators working on a renewed nuclear deal with Iran gave up and left the team because they thought that President Biden was being too weak in dealing with Iran during negotiations.

“U.S. officials confirmed over the weekend that Richard Nephew, the deputy special envoy for Iran, has left the team. Mr. Nephew, an architect of previous economic sanctions on Iran, had advocated a tougher posture in the current negotiations, and he hasn’t attended the talks in Vienna since early December,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Two other members of the team, which is led by State Department veteran Robert Malley, have stepped back from the talks, the people familiar said, because they also wanted a harder negotiating stance.”

Biden Suggests Only Solution To Gas Prices Is Letting Putin Invade Europe

Published

Joe Biden

On Wednesday, President Biden suggested that the only solution to high gas prices is to allow Russian President Vladimir Putin to invade parts of Europe.

“For all those Republicans in Congress criticizing me today for high gas prices in America, are you now saying we were wrong to support Ukraine?” Biden said. “Are you saying we were wrong to stand up to Putin?  Are you saying that we would rather have lower gas prices in America and Putin’s iron fist in Europe?”

“I don’t believe that,” he continued. “Look, I get the easy politics of the attack.  I get that.  But the simple truth is gas prices are up almost $2.00 a gallon because of Vladimir Putin’s ruthless attack on Ukraine, and we wouldn’t let him get away with it.  And we’re doing everything we can to reduce this pain at the pump now.”

However, the increase in gas prices since Russia invaded Ukraine is closer to $1 than it is to $2. On February 24, the day Russia invaded Ukraine, national gas prices were at $3.54 per gallon, and on June 22, the day of Biden’s speech, gas prices were at $4.95 per gallon – which is an increase of $1.41.

Gas prices began rising shortly after Biden took office. From January 20, 2021, to February 24, 2022, gas prices soared from $2.40 per gallon to $3.54 per gallon – an increase of nearly 50 percent.
