What’s this? A far-left radical Democrat is openly admitting she lied to high school kids? Pigs must be flying! Here’s the scoop, via Free Beacon:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) admitted to flubbing the facts of an anecdote she told a large group of students to illustrate the “racism, cruelty, and injustice” she’s seen in America since being accepted as a refugee more than two decades ago.

Reactions:

There is a trend in our society where people just make things up to get their point across, or to seem relevant or morally superior. This is bad for society. It is what some people are calling “post-truth” and our elected leaders should not be leading this way.

Just another day in the life of @IlhanMN. If her mouth is open, she’s lying for attention. #dobetter #Minnesota5

Is this an example of being morally right is more important than being factually correct? Freakin’ dingbat.

Lying liars lie.

Why would she stop if she knows she can get away with it?

The Minnesota Congresswoman who reportedly married her brother has once again made headlines by saying something obtuse.

Omar is learning to pander with the best of them.

At the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) conference, Ilhan said “some people did something” on 9/11.

On Wednesday, while speaking at an event organized by Black Lives Matter, Omar screeched about America not being the country of “white people.”

Sounds a little racist, no?

From The Blaze:

The freshman congresswoman said that Trump and his political allies are to blame for a surge in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in the U.S.

Fellow freshman lawmaker Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) was also in attendance at the event, which was held at the Capitol and called “Black Women in Defense of Ilhan Omar.”

She noted, “This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people. This is not going to be the country of the few. This is going to be the country of the many.

WATCH:

Her tweet about the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris has some claiming she just offended Christians worldwide.

LOOK:

Art and architecture have a unique ability to help us connect across our differences and bring people together in important ways. Thinking of the people of Paris and praying for every first responder trying to save this wonder.

Reactions:

“Art and architecture”? It’s a church.

Well, the “architecture” that the art was housed in is a cathedral. While Biblically Christ is wherever His people are, Notre Dame is a significant and storied icon of faith.

The “art and architecture” has a name. It’s called Notre Dame Cathedral. It is a place of worship for Catholics.

This is disrespectful toward Catholics specifically and Christians in general. Notre Dame represents a bit more than “art and architecture” — lest anyone think Omar merely enjoys dissing Jews.

Did the Louvre burn, or was it a storage facility for overflow art? Or was it a Catholic cathedral? Can’t tell from this word salad.

President Trump Calls On United Nations To Hold China Accountable For Causing Pandemic

Published

on

President Trump has come out and called upon the United Nations to step up to the plate and hold China accountable for causing the coronavirus pandemic that has swept across the globe, killing hundreds of thousands of people and almost leading to economic collapse for America and many other nations across the world. The president made his confrontational speech to the United Nations General Assembly in a recorded address a day earlier at the White House. The tone of his talk made it absolutely clear he’s not at all happy with China, the nation where this mess originated from. via Washington Examiner: His speech contained a list of accusations against Beijing, from allowing travelers to spread what he called the “China virus” around the world to polluting the oceans. “The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump said, calling on the U.N. to hold Beijing to account. “Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” he said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions. China absolutely should be held accountable for causing this mess. There are a lot of theories out there that suggest this virus was created and purposefully leaked into the world. We don’t know if that’s true, but even if it isn’t and the whole thing was an accident, the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for all of the horrific loss of life and economic damage this has caused. As such, they need to step up to the plate and make this right. They need to take responsibility for their actions and their blatant failures to get the spread of this illness under control.

Liberal Officials At State And Local Level Using Coronavirus Aid Money For Free College, Guaranteed Income

Published

on

State and local officials are taking full advantage of the millions of dollars they have received from CARES Act funding — before it reverts back to the federal government — by spending the money for many, many different kinds of liberal priorities, including free college, “Trunk or Treating,” or an experimental income program. The CARES Act has provided $139 billion for state and local governments. These payments have been used to fund a plethora of programs, including police budgets and utility assistance for struggling residents. And that is the sort of thing this money is supposed to go toward. Helping folks of all walks of life endure the hardships caused by the coronavirus and the subsequent shutdowns. However, liberals are using this money to support their own little pet projects and causes too. via Fox News: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is spending millions on free college for more than 600,000 essential workers. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell agreed to spend $629,000 to hire 15 community relations specialists. Democratic St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter recently announced a guaranteed income program for low-income families using $300,000 in CARES Act money but has received pushback from a fellow Democrat. Earlier in September, Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., wrote a letter to Carter expressing concern that the spending fell outside of federal guidelines and could be subject to recoupment by the U.S. Treasury. https://twitter.com/MayorCarter/status/1301936145585106944 It’s not at all surprising to see liberals take money that was supposed to be designated to help folks struggling in the wake of the pandemic closures for things they’ve always wanted to have the money to put in motion. What’s maddening is these same officials are already standing in line, hands out, begging for more money because there isn’t enough to actually help people in their communities because they misappropriated the…
