Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Wednesday suggested that “far too many” of the individuals who are desperately urging officials to reopen the economy so they can resume earning a living and recover from economic hardship are not actually “workers.” “Far too many of the people who want to prematurely reopen the economy aren’t workers, but the powerful and wealthy — those who benefit most from exploiting workers’ labor,” Omar proclaimed. “The wealthy have a history of putting luxury over workers’ livelihoods, and this crisis is no different,” she added: [Tweet] Omar’s assertion comes as citizens across the country gather to protest lockdown orders in their respective states,

If you look up the phrase "blithering idiot," there is a photo of Ilhan Omar as a prime example!!

Omar has it wrong. The people who want to keep us locked down are not workers. They are democrat politicians and bureaucrats, who receive their pay right on time. They don't even have to work, except to put out propaganda!

Let her - and the rest of her ilk - keep talking. Now that the RNC is willing to publish real campaign commercials, the breadth of anti-American, anti-worker, anti-human comments being spewed by the hate mongering left will provide an insight into the mindset of your average Progressive in their own words. These words need to be heard far and wide and used to bring down the Fascist left. Oh but Devnull the Fascists are right-wingers.... wrong. The political spectrum goes from complete state control on the left (monarchies, dictatorships, etc where the state is the only sovereign) to zero state control on the right (true anarchy, the individual is the only sovereign). Anything you have learned otherwise is false. To describe the political spectrum in any other way is to fail to understand what a spectrum is and the underlying math which defines a stepwise function that is the basis for any spectrum.

I listened to Glenn Beck's morning radio program this week, and he had an interesting segment on Congresswoman Ilan Omar. Coincidentally, right now I'm listening to a local conservative in Boston who's describing a book by a former Communist that contrasts the lives of the "ruling class" in communist countries with the lives of the working people.The so-called ruling class did NOT have to follow the rule of law, while the working class lost all freedoms. Enough said.

What a steaming pantload! The only workers who aren't desperate to get back to work are the ones who are getting the 'covid' unemployment bonus that gives them MORE weekly income than their missing wages did. Ill-head Omar knows damned well that if it weren't for that illegitimate income increase, those who were laid off because of the jump to close businesses would be the FIRST ones wanting back to work.

Promiscuous blithering idiot OP. A gigantic hypocrite regarding her religion as well. IIRC, Rush talked about how most of the ones who do NOT want an early reopening are the democrat fat cats who donate to her party. He seemed a bit surprised by that too. They want to swoop in and scoop up all kinds of goodies like companies going down, stocks on the cheap and so on. Figures that this skank would not have a clue. But then she comes from a parasitic culture, so why would she understand how businesses work, not to mention a nation's economy.

President Trump says the protesters who stormed Michigan’s Capitol on Thursday — some of them armed with rifles — are “very good people” who are angry with the state’s restrictive COVID-19 lockdown. In a tweet on Friday morning, the president weighed in on tensions roiling the state and called on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to negotiate with demonstrators who are demanding parts of the economy be reopened amid the coronavirus pandemic. “The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire. These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal,” he wrote.
The FBI’s ‘Russiagate’ search-and-destroy

With the latest revelation, the FBI’s “Russiagate” investigation now stands exposed as worse than amateurish — and more like a search-and-destroy mission. Destroy the Trump administration, that is — not actual US enemies. Lawyers for ex-Gen. Michael Flynn released just-unsealed documents that suggest the FBI abused its power to take out President Trump’s first national security adviser. Two FBI agents interviewed Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017, just days after the inauguration. The claim that he’d lied to those agents about his contacts with the Russian ambassador triggered a Beltway fury that forced him to quit, ending his career.

Joe Biden’s comment that he doesn’t want to open up his Senate records, in part, because of “speeches I’ve made” has attracted the attention of Republicans and President Trump’s re-election campaign. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s statement came on MSNBC Friday morning as he denied a sexual assault allegation from a former Senate aide, Tara Reade. The specific quote was highlighted on Twitter by Andrew Clark, the rapid response director of Trump’s re-election campaign. “What’s Biden hidin’?” wrote former Breitbart editor Raheem Kassam. Kimberly Guilfoyle, a Trump campaign adviser and girlfriend of the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., also noted her concern.

Asked by Wallace to explain how two FBI agents were allowed to waltz into the White House and casually interview Flynn during the first few days of the Trump administration back in early 2017, Comey admitted it was because of him.

Abrams, who has repeatedly declared herself the winner of Georgia's 2018 gubernatorial election despite receiving fewer votes than her Republican opponent, has been "privately calling Democratic powerbrokers, asking them to tell Biden campaign officials that she should be vice president."
