Omar Demands Trump ‘Step Down’ Over GAO Report, But Obama Violated Federal Law 7 Times

How about them apples?

Rookie lawmaker Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has enough problems of her own to be worrying about. After all, the FBI, ICE, and another federal agency are looking into potential crimes she may have committed, including student loan fraud and immigration fraud. Omar doesn’t need to tweet silly stuff like this, for reasons that will be made abundantly clear in about 30 seconds.

Just keep scrolling…

Here’s her misleading tweet:

Here’s why Omar’s tweet is nonsensical, via Hot Air:

In the summer of 2019, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) withheld from obligation funds appropriated to the Department of Defense (DOD) for security assistance to Ukraine. In order to withhold the funds, OMB issued a series of nine apportionment schedules with footnotes that made all unobligated balances unavailable for obligation.

Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law. OMB withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act (ICA). The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that OMB violated the ICA.

Continued:

Read the whole report, however, and one finds the glaring issue with this conclusion, which is that the administration didn’t have an obligation to release the funds on any specific date in the fiscal year. All they needed to do was to make sure the money got spent by the last day of the budget cycle.

Also, did Omar know that the Obama administration was called out SEVEN TIMES by the GAO?

Where were calls for Barack to step down?

Nevertheless, if a mere GAO finding is sufficient to justify impeachment, then President Barack Obama ought to have been impeached at least seven times over for each of the following cases in which the GAO found that the Obama administration had violated federal law.

Back to the drawing board, Ilhan.

Pete Buttigieg Believes In Less Government But Only About One Issue [Opinion]

Something a lot of Americans are passionate about…

Published

The View‘s Meghan McCain recently sought a clearer answer from Mayor Pete Buttigieg about his position on late-term abortion. She asked him where he drew the line and whether his position included a baby actually being born: Buttigieg: “We live in a country where it is extremely important that no one person should have to be subject to some other person’s interpretation of their own religion.” I wondered whether Mayor Pete thought religious freedom equally applied to say, Jack Phillips’ right not to be forced to create a custom cake for a gay wedding. Sure enough I found a piece in the Washington Free Beacon, entitled, “Mayor Pete Will Make you Bake the Cake.” McCain pressed again, and the Mayor of South Bend answered with rhetoric that sounded like a limited government conservative: Buttigieg: “My point is that it shouldn’t be up to the government official to draw the line. It should be up the woman who is confronted with that choice.” McCain: “So if a woman wanted to invoke infanticide after a baby is born, you’d be comfortable with that?” Buttigieg: “… I don’t know what to tell them morally about what they should do. I just know that I trust that her decision isn’t going to be any better, medically or morally . . . because the government is telling her to do it a certain way.” He gave an almost identical answer in a televised Town Hall with Chris Wallace. Candidate Buttigieg who is ordinarily so comfortable sermonizing to his Leftist flock couldn’t bring himself to say that it is immoral to kill a baby after it’s born. I’ve always found it perplexing that the Left’s strong support for Obamacare never included any of this faux passion for freedom and restraint of government when it comes to…

Bloomberg: ‘Black & Latino Males’ Don’t ‘Know How to Behave In the Workplace’ (Video)

This could be the video to end his campaign…

If Michael Bloomberg was running for president as a Republican, the mainstream media would literally force him to drop from the race after several cringeworthy videos resurfaced. For instance, just the other day the former mayor of New York City said elderly patients should be denied care past a certain age. He was then busted for completely mocking farmers, basically calling them rubes by saying he could personally “teach anyone” how to farm. He also allegedly told an employee to “kill” her baby. But this 2011 clip below may just be the one that ends “Mini Mike’s” 2020 hopes. From Fox News: While promoting a $127 million, three-year initiative to help minorities in the workplace in 2011, then-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared that there’s “this enormous cohort of black and Latino males” who “don’t know how to behave in the workplace” and “don’t have any prospects.” […] Speaking to PBS in the 2011 interview, Bloomberg noted that he had donated $30 million from his foundation to Open Society Foundations, the network established by liberal billionaire financier Goerge Soros, toward the new plan to enhance employment among minorities.
