Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota Democrat dogged by allegations of anti-Semitism, told Muslims in a speech Saturday to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable” in defense of their rights. As hundreds of pro-Israel protesters rallied outside, Ms. Omar said U.S. Muslims should confront discrimination in her keynote speech at a fundraiser hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Greater Los Angeles in Woodland Hills, California. “So, to me, I say raise hell. Make people uncomfortable,” Ms. Omar said as the crowd cheered. “Because here’s the truth, here’s the truth: Far too long we have lived with the discomfort

Comments:

Guess Islam in the USA has metastasized to the point where they´re comfortable at throwing their weight around, where previously it was just a matter of importing them as refugees and supporting them through taxpayer dollars.

Once you understand that both the American Left and Islamic supremacists have common enemies in capitalism, individual liberty and the Judeo-Christian values that made this country great and are allies in a war against Western Civilization, it all falls nicely into place.

All those rights that Muslim women have..like driving cars and wearing bikinis and telling their men to shut up.

Are those the rights the idiot is talking about?

Liberals like Muslims because they both hate God.

Just like the U.S. getting along with Russia on the subject of Hitler.

They´d best be careful making people uncomfortable. They already do. Every time I see one of them (which is thankfully rare) I wonder what they are planning to blow up, behead or rape.
Much more uncomfortable and they might not like the results.

Pope Francis said ¨hagan lío¨ which means like raise hell in Spanish. Unlike the sharia Muslima that married her brother, Francisco only speaks argentine Spanish. But ir is same Marxism instead of sticking to religion.

This is why God sent US Trump the Great.

My sis pointed out today that we are a Christian nation founded on Judeo-Christian values. Muslims come to this country trying to change it to their religion. Can anyone imagine what would happen if we, as Christians, went over to an Islamic country and insist they change to our Christian values and religion? We would be jailed, killed, or deported.

Swim back where you belong and take Sandy Occasional-Cortex and Illian Talib under each arm. We like America as is and do the humble work muslims won’t do. We like our recently born babies and our oil exports and gas and reject chain migration for the Muslim Brotherhood because it is dangerous to our health. Democrats don’t mind a bit, and by following Trump we will defeat Socialism2020,

Polling of Muslims around the globe reveals that approximately 10% are radical in nature. They are in favor of Sharia Law. There are around 1.6 BILLION Muslims on the planet, so 160 million are radicalized to some extent. Adherents of Islam are devotees of their holy texts. Those texts contain passages that direct them to kill infidels in service to their god. Europe has been overrun by "refugees who are destroying their culture such that Europe will in the not too distant future be known as Eurabia.
Devoted Muslims have similar plans for America if we allow it. And now we hear Ilhan Omar tell Muslims to "raise hell"? Why is the Democrat Party tolerating her?

This is the plan. Muslims come to a foreign nation, play the victim as they grow in strength and political power which they are able to swiftly do because of the progressive factions in these countries. They soak up any and all benefits of the host country. After they have concentrated their power and received many concessions by claiming victimhood, they will then move into the political sphere. They gain power there and bring more aboard until they are a dominant force to push their agenda forward. Their goal is to force the host country into submission. It has been an effective strategy in Europe and it will work here if the progressives have their way. We must not allow it. We must always pushback against it. While they may have been successful in Europe, they will find the United States another matter. If they want this country and they surely do, they will have to physically fight for it because we will not submit. Ever. We must be vigilant and push back against them at every opportunity because they will not stop in their effort to dominate and subdue. We do not have the luxury of complacency. They must be confronted and challenged.

Think not all that far back as to who is responsible for the greatest hoaxes and problems America now faces. Most of the time, it’s women doing this crap.
Hillary was the catalyst and main operative of the entire Russia hoax.
Tlaib wins her election and says to “impeach the MF – ER.“
Michelle Obama tries to tell people what to eat.
Maxine Waters is promoting violence against Republicans.
Dianne Feinstein was deeply involved in prosecuting Kavanaugh.
Christine ford lied her butt off in testimony. Many other women swore to her lies.
Omar is now in Congress, a deeply hateful and anti-Semitic Muslim.
AOC wants to topple the entire American representative republic and capitalist system.

Almost everywhere you look you find deep corruption with a woman at the heart of one mess or another. Shame.

It´s NOT discrimination! Islam is a religion not a race! But, living in the Minneapolis metro I´m sure something is about to explode and our cracker jack Minneapolis Mayor and council will blame all the white people in town... Like we are all the real problem since we don´t cotton to throwing homosexuals off buildings or cuttings limbs off for minor crimes! But...hey...we are just closed minded don´t you know!!! She needs to keep talking! Maybe someday the RATS will get the message...but I doubt it! I think MN Democrats see her as a modern Paul Wellstone...(Yes, we still see the old prius or tiny death trap going 45 in the left lane of the freeway during rush hour with a Wellstone bumper sticker). It´s always a gray haired woman with a death grip at 10 and 2, nose 2 inches from the windshield blaring NPR on their way home from Whole Foods wearing some sort of greenish earthy color and earth sandles!

I fear the answer lies only in a tough stance against this sedition. This is not just palaver, but insurrection at it apex. We are seeing an overt assault on the roots of OUR country. I hate to say it, but these traitors must be contained within the law and removed from Our House. This is treason.

Further, I fear that Ocaisio-Cortez is a trojan horse being primed for the prize in 2024. She will be 35 and will have a head of steam driving her to the throne. There is a well organized machine at the wheel of this Manchurian President. Never before have we seen a dimwit slapping the demns around who have become enthralled by her packaged communism. She has been pushed in our face three, four, five times every day and the rhetoric is more anti-American at every appearance. This is not just babble, it is a fulminating coup de etat!

Where is Charles Martel. Where is John Galt. We are on the fringes of the 2020 Crusades and it ain´t gonna be pretty.

Lock and load and Pray, God Bless America and keep our president and his family safe!

# 28 For telling the truth. For giving voice to what many Americans are thinking about Omar ( and other muslims in office). The truth has taken a beating on so many things. It no longer has a place in left wing politics, the msm and even Fox. P.C. is censorship. It takes away your guaranteed right of Free Speech. We have to fight for it everyday. Everyday.

Somalians moved to Minnesota starting in the late ’80’s. Within 10 years members of their religion, including a Muslim in Minnesota, took part in the execution of the attacks of 9/11. The Somalians, through CAIR, said little to renounce the attacks and Somali youth has to be continually scrutinized by federal authorities because they have a tendency to become radicalized and to fight for alQaeda-type groups in the Mideast. Omar, in 2019, says Muslims are fed up with being treated as “second class citizens” in the US. We should laugh in her face but she’s a US Representative. Obama gave it away in his book title: audacity is the Leftists and Muslims weapon of choice also known as Baffle them with BS. Are we really this weak and stupid?

Riddle me this pumpkin, in what country on planet earth can someone with the skin pigmentation shared by only 13% of the population with a religion that is shared by roughly 1% rise to the level where they are one of the 0.00016% who make it to the highest governing body in the land? And oh yea, where your religion reins supreme women are lucky if they can rise above the status of property.

And just how uncomfortable do you intend us to be; you are aware that´s the goal of terrorism aren´t you? Perhaps you don´t mean that uncomfortable, perhaps you do.

Just so you know, my fellow patriots and I will defend our rights and have been proudly doing so against a rising tide of tyranny for decades. It doesn´t make us the least bit uncomfortable, you see darling our resolve was hammered into shape at places like Valley Forge. We are ready to embrace our legacy, those of us with ancestors who survived that winter standing shoulder to shoulder with newcomers who are here to be American patriots with liberty in their hearts.

I live in a town that has two mosques and quite a few muslims. None of the women wear full niqab and very few even wear hijab. Most of them are Bosnian or Indian and a lot of them are professionals. I have gone to some muslim doctors and was treated well. My muslim students wished me Merry Christmas. No one has a chip on their shoulders at all and for the most part, everyone gets along quite well. Ilhan Omar should come over see how its done.

Omar has no business being in government. Doesn´t matter that people elected her. Kick her out!

Let people in that hate America, and do not share any of America´s values, and they will elect people that are like-minded. That´s what we are seeing here.

We are taught as children ´do not talk to strangers´. When we grow up it still applies in that we do not automatically trust everyone around us. Muslims have done many things in the past to destroy trust. They still are today.

FTA: “Because here’s the truth, here’s the truth: Far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and frankly I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.”

As an Islamist, they feel not being treated with "proper respect" due to our superiors is being treated as second class citizens. The Quran tells them that any non-believer in Islam is an infidel, a lesser citizen who is to be insulted, taxed, and if they become resentful, killed outright as they are not fit to be allowed to live in a Muslim society.

Ilhan Omar is confident that her election (along with Tlaib) signals that Muslim strength in our culture is secure enough for the end of taqqyia and it´s time to begin the next phase of their takeover of out country.

Apologies for a second post. Sometimes We do not see the forest for the trees. This is about numbers. If I have two children, you have none, some other American has four, it is about numbers and We are going to be outnumbered. If all of these Muzlims come as refugees and settle in one district, they will keep electing people like Omar. It will become an enclave and no go zone. We have seen what happened in London, France and Germany. Not much different than what crosses the southern border and keep popping out anchor babies or chain migration.
We have no one to blame but ourselves for not speaking out or running for office. PC has ruined this country.

‘Tonight Show’ and Jimmy Fallon slammed for allowing Morrissey to wear far-right pin 22 replies

“The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” is in hot water over an outfit choice made by a guest performer. British musician Morrissey appeared on the NBC late-night talk show to perform—and he took the stage wearing a far-right pin on his lapel. The pin featured the logo of the anti-Islam For Britain political party. Morrissey, once the frontman of The Smiths, has openly supported the party since 2018. “I have been following a new party called For Britain which is led by Anne Marie Waters.

Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines is worth $37billion (£28billion) and flies to 370 destinations on six continents with state-of-the-art aircraft. Truly, it’s a titan of aviation. But it started life as a crop-dusting outfit in 1924. And when it expanded to passenger transportation it used planes that could only hit 90mph, with the wind behind them. Delta has been on quite a journey, then—and these fascinating pictures illustrate the carrier’s dramatic transformation over the decades. They show some of its earliest passenger planes, a restored 1931 model with five passenger seats, a 1940 Douglas DC-3,

The activist who describes herself as “every Islamophobe’s worst nightmare” told her nearly 300,000 Twitter followers this week that white women are to blame for the election of Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, the pro-life legislation he signed into law May 7, and feminists’ ongoing struggle with “the patriarchy.” “While folks are debating tactics to respond to Georgia’s heartbeat bill, let’s remember that 76% of the white Women electorate in GA (more than white men) voted for Brian Kemp

Mr. Sanders said his agents are now spending more time changing diapers, driving migrants and providing medical care for families and children than they are spending out in the field on patrol.

A group of LGBTQ activists fed up with the overwhelming presence of corporate sponsorship in the New York City Pride March has decided that it was time to reclaim the original spirit of the Stonewall Riots, one of the most important events for the LGBTQ liberation movement. The Reclaim Pride Coalition (RPC), a group of more than 100 human rights and LGBTQ organizations, is following the lead of the Stonewall pioneers, and rising up against the mainstream establishment.(Snip) “We are reclaiming pride by holding our own queer liberation march,” Colin Ashley an activist with the coalition and the Peoples Power

The marriages were short and not for love. But instead of a Las Vegas-style, alcohol-fueled ceremony, these marriages were criminal schemes. Authorities announced Monday that nearly 100 people have been indicted in a massive conspiracy in which immigrants paid as much as $70,000 to briefly marry a U.S. citizen and obtain a permanent resident card known as a “Green Card.” The indictment, returned by a grand jury in Texas late last month, accuses 96 people of taking part in the Houston-based criminal organization, which created sham marriages between legal U.S. residents and aliens, mostly from Vietnam, for years.

Nabisco’s Chips Ahoy! cookie brand on Sunday mocked people who were upset over the company’s Mother’s Day ad that featured a recent contestant on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Jose Cancel, a drag queen who uses the stage name Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, recorded a video for the cookie company urging people to buy cookies for their moms and “drag moms” for Mother’s Day.(Tweet) “Your real mama, your drag mama, whichever mama, whoever taking care of you, whoever you feel or consider your mama, it’s their day today—get them a cookie,” Mr. Cancel said in the video that’s racked up more
De Blasio holds press conference at Trump Tower—and gets heckled 11 replies

Donald Trump’s gotten under his skin. Mayor Bill de Blasio grew hoarse shouting over the cranked-up crooning of Frank Sinatra tunes playing in the Trump Tower lobby as he tried to promote his “Green New Deal.” The mayor had planned a press conference outside the tower that houses president’s Manhattan residence, but Mother Nature forced him to relocate the event into some very unfriendly territory—the gilded building’s public lobby.(Snip) Trump Tower staff turned up the dial on the PA system just moments before the mayor entered the 5th Avenue building.

Ocasio-Cortez says growing cauliflower

Posted by NorthernDog 5/21/2019 11:36:22 AM
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out. The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Some Form of Socialism

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., joined the legion of “Game of Thrones” fans disappointed by the show’s finale. “I’m sad,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a video of the two legislators posted to Warren’s Twitter account Tuesday. “Disappointed about it.” “I was just really… meh,” said Warren. The pair bemoaned the arcs of the female characters who seemed prime to rule at the end of the series. Instead, one “went crazy” and the other settled for ruling only part of the continent. The lawmakers were not alone in their distaste for the series’ treatment of its female characters

The political zealotry of the federal judge who ordered ten years’ worth of Donald Trump’s financial records be turned over to the House Oversight and Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings has been revealed with a highly unusual provision of his order. (snip) The remedy for potential political bias in a federal judge’s ruling consists of the appeals process, with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and ultimately the Supreme Court able to reverse such a decision. But Judge Mehta’s order forbids this

After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies
Posted by MissMolly 5/22/2019 3:57:46 AM
Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
