Official Over Family Planning Funding

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 7/12/2019 11:46:08 AM

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Thursday drew a link between access to family planning and education and employment for women. She then slapped down a USAID official when he pointed to work the agency does to advance education and employment for women. “That’s well and dandy,” interjected Omar, cutting off USAID chief human capital officer Bob Leavitt. “My question was investments in family planning.” The exchange occurred as House Foreign Affairs Committee members asked officials about the administration’s State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development operations budget request for fiscal year 2020.

Send this piece of trash back where she belongs: Somalia. "investments in family planning" by this ignorant arrogant @itch translates to 'my family' and all other Somalian illegals in this country. The rest of the people do not interest her. How can it happen that Americans voted this garbage into office???

Investments in family planning? How is the USA providing contraception to women in other countries an investment. IT IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY! It makes us feel good. It may be necessary due to the rape culture that we are supposed to accept as a way of life in some countries due to their "religion of peace" or lawlessness. Omar being a smug condescending meangirl does not help her or her cause. It just help makes her to look like what she truly is... an angry liberal progressive who hates anything that the USA represents or does.

The typical sub Saharan woman has 6 or more children. Somalia is probably up around there. More and more of this excess ends up illegally immigrating elsewhere - Europe - or drowning in the Mediterranean. I can get behind a program that helps women stem this never-ending baby boom.

Since when is it up to anyone else except the family to plan itself? When did the government get into “family planning“? This is another example of the liberal left insisting that the government run everything from abortions to euthanasia and everything in between such as “family planning.“ These are decisions that should be made by individuals, not by government. The government should stay as far away from planning a family as you can possibly get because they destroy everything they touch

It would be encouraging to hope that Omar has used "family planning" to not propagate herself. Unfortunately, Wikipedia lists her as already having 3 children in her common-law marriage: one of whom "Isra Hirsi, is one of the three principal organizers of the school strike for climate change" (aka playing hooky). In reality, I'm pretty sure whatever school Isra is attending would welcome her taking a years-long "strike". She sounds every bit as unpleasant as her nasty mother.

Two things can be true about former special counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony yesterday. It was damaging to President Trump, contradicting the president’s key claims and defenses about the Russia probe. And it all but closed the door on the likelihood of Democrats impeaching the president – given the congressional math. Here’s a fuller breakdown on our six takeaways from yesterday: Mueller contradicted Trump’s story on the Russia probe: “It is not a witch hunt,” Mueller said… “It was not a hoax.”… Russia’s intervention helped Trump’s campaign — not Hillary Clinton’s… Trump was NOT exonerated by the report… And “problematic is an understatement” is how Mueller described Trump’s use of the WikiLeaks

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), which led up to the chants at his rally last Wednesday. “The president’s rally will be a defining moment in American history.

Robert Mueller’s Most Misleading

A defining moment of today’s televised hearings came when former Special Counsel Robert Mueller claimed that he was “not familiar” with the controversial Fusion GPS firm. Fusion GPS, of course, was paid by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee to produce the infamous Christopher Steele dossier that reportedly played a central role in sparking the FBI’s questionable Russia collusion probe involving the very claims that Mueller’s team was purportedly established to investigate. Unsubstantiated Fusion GPS charges were reportedly utilized as evidence in successful FISA applications to obtain successive warrants to conduct surveillance on Carter Page, a former adviser to President Trump’s 2016 campaign who was also a

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) became agitated when asked at an event in D.C. this week if she and fellow Muslim congresswoman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) would condemn female genital mutilation. She decried what she called “assumptions about what our value basis might be because of where we might come from, and who we pray to.” Awkwardly, the question came from Ani Zonneveld, president of Muslims for Progressive Values and also a featured speaker on the Muslim Caucus Collective for Equitable Democracy event, where the exchange took place. Zonneveld drew attention to a Detroit judge’s ruling last November that a 22-year-old federal law making female genital mutilation (FGM) a crime was unconstitutional.

Border Patrol agents insist that completed new sections of border barriers are helping them to secure the border and making the agents safer in the process. This comes on the heels of media reports inaccurately asserting that no new barriers have been constructed during the Trump Administration. Border Patrol Agent Mike Matzke told Breitbart News, “New sections of Trump’s wall have been built and anyone claiming that a 30-foot barrier that replaced a 10-foot high sheet metal fence isn’t new barrier doesn’t know what they are talking about. The old legacy landing mat fence in our sector wasn’t effective and really bad people were jumping all day and night.”

While speaking to reporters on Tuesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) stated that he doesn’t recognize the Department of Justice’s limitation on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony. Schiff said, “We don’t recognize that limitation at all, and what’s more, they don’t recognize that limitation. They say that it’s well-established DOJ policy that the prosecutor can’t talk about this, or the department doesn’t comment on people not indicted. Tell that to Bill Barr. If the attorney general ignores DOJ policy, then how does he have any right to ask Bob Mueller or anyone else to follow this policy, when it’s not a policy at all?”

The Justice Department Monday warned former special counsel Robert Mueller that his upcoming congressional testimony should not stray from the written conclusions outlined in the 448-page final report of the two-year investigation into Russian election interference. "Any testimony must remain within the boundaries of your public report because matters within the scope of your investigation were covered by executive privilege, including information protected by law enforcement...and presidential communications privileges," Associate Deputy Attorney General Bradley Weinsheimer wrote in a two-page letter to Mueller two days before his scheduled testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

The Democrat Party’s open borders, mass immigration platform for the upcoming 2020 presidential election is turning off moderate Democrat voters, a new poll reveals. For months now, Democrats running in the presidential primary have largely presented platforms promoting amnesty for all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens, free health care for illegal aliens, and the decriminalization of illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border. This open borders agenda, spearheaded by a select group of white liberals in the party’s ranks, is causing a rift among Democrats. The latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll finds that a plurality of 47 percent of moderate Democrat voters say providing free health care

The most important thing Robert Mueller revealed today in his testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees was that he didn’t really know that much about the work of the investigation that bears his name -- and that he is prone to senior moments with alarming frequency. That he could in no way have been the actual leader of a large team of high-powered lawyers is now obvious to everyone in cringe-worthy detail (snip) He was a BINO, a Boss In Name Only, or, colloquially, a front-man.

The $25 million damages judgment plus the over $6.5 million attorney’s fees and expenses award, puts Oberlin College almost $32 million in debt to Gibson’s Bakery and its owners. Post-judgment interest in Ohio is 5%, which if my math is correct, on $32 million equals $1.6 million a year just in interest, or $4,384 per day. So that $32 million is going to keep growing as the inevitable appeal winds its way through the courts. Interest aside, Oberlin College doesn’t want Gibson’s Bakery to start collecting the judgment by seizing bank accounts, college equipment, and anything else they can get their hands on. Not surprisingly, Oberlin College

Robert Mueller is a very impressive man. Until he opens his mouth. Or, perhaps, he is just a calcified, barnacle-crusted swamp creature long past his prime. If that’s the case and Democrats forced him out of his retirement home to just play along with their silly partisan fantasies, then they should all be rounded up and arrested for elder abuse. Either way, it’s no wonder why Mr. Mueller fought so hard against testifying publicly before Congress. But there he was: in the bright lights on national television sputtering, bumbling and doddering about some report these people kept talking about. Again and again, Mr. Mueller would wander off topic and his mouth would wander off

This hurts, because I like Tulsi Gabbard. She challenges Democrats for their hypocrisy, but her recent statement is beyond the pale for me. Rep.

Board of Education, and America’s schools still remain segregated,” said Mr. O’Rourke, a former congressman from Texas. “The effects of a system where students of color are disciplined at alarmingly higher rates than white students, where funding favors white school districts over nonwhite districts, or where white teachers far outnumber black teachers live on well beyond students leaving the classroom.”
