“How Is Your Country Doing?”: Trump Draws Fire Over New Attacks On Rep. Omar

Many of us have previously denounced President Donald Trump for his disgraceful attacks on Rep. Ihan Omar’s (D., Minn.) roots in Somalia.  It is precisely the type of intolerant, anti-immigrant language that has led many former Trump voters to move away from his campaign in 2020. Nevertheless, President Trump resumed those attacks Tuesday night at a rally where he portrayed Somalia as “her country” as opposed to “our” country in the United States.

Trump declared  “She’s telling us how to run our country. How did you do where you came from? How was your country doing?”

It was a shocking attack from an American president and drew a well-deserved rebuke from Omar: “Firstly, this is my country & I am a member of the House that impeached you. Secondly, I fled civil war when I was 8. An 8-year-old doesn’t run a country even though you run our country like one.”

I have regularly disagreed with Omar on her own statements and policies.  However, this is her country and her extraordinary journey from child in a civil war in Somalia to a member of Congress is inspirational. It is precisely what our country — Omar’s country — is all about.

People of good faith need to be heard in calling out the President for this type of divisive and frankly unAmerican rhetoric.  We are a nation of immigrants like Omar.  This is our country.

  1. Actually she is a naturalized citizen of the U.S. When she was elected to the House or Rep. she took an oath to uphold the laws of this country. She lied when she took that oath. You can tell by how and what she has supported and who and what she has condemned (Israel – BDS War) supported death to Israel.
    She should have her U.S. citizenship revoked, kicked out of Congress due to her Seditious acts, and send her packing back to her birth country!
    Suits me JUST FINE!

  2. This woman came here from a third world hell hole and now she wants to turn this country into the manure pile she left.

  3. WTF?

    Trump is asked whether he’ll commit to a peaceful transferal of power, and not only will he NOT say that he’s committed to it, he says “I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots. And the ballots are a disaster. … We wanna have -. Get rid of the ballots, and you’ll have a very trans-, we’ll have a very peaceful-, there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There’ll be a continuation. The ballots are out of control.”
    video here: https://twitter.com/nycsouthpaw/status/1308903171658579970

    He wants to get rid of ballots so he can continue in office.

    He doesn’t want to be President of a democracy. He wants to be a dictator.

    Even though I know he’s a malignant narcissist, I’m still sometimes surprised by the specifics of how he displays it. But this is also one of his tactics: say it in public and then pretend that it can’t be bad, because if it were bad, he’d be hiding it. And he’ll trust that his firehose of falsehoods and firehose of outrages will protect him, because there’s so much lying and outrageous unAmerican behavior that it’s hard for people to keep hold of any specific one and take it seriously, because it’s quickly displaced by another.

          1. So you live in your idiotic bubble everyday, and you’re happy? Outside of this blog, your statements are very idiotic to a great number of people, but if you’re happy, so be it.

            1. Outside of this blog, your statements are very idiotic to a great number of people,

          1. Anonymous the Stupid, a little cowardly rat, is all alone making a quick comment in the dark before running back to the rat latrine.

            1. Allan the Stupid, a little cowardly rat, attacks people from the safety of his electronic device and spends the rest of his time in his rat latrine.

              1. Here we have Anonymous the Stupid who used to respond to me with a relatively constant icon but is too cowardly to continue with that icon so he responds under the more generic symbol. The numbers of posts from rats is astoundingly high on this blog. On one page alone I saw 82 listings for Anonymous.

                Now Anonymous the Stupid can run back to his rat latrine.

                1. If you weren’t so ignorant, Allan, you’d know that multiple people post under the Anonymous name.
                  You don’t object to anyone posting a lot of comments if the person agrees with you. You compadre John Say can easily post that many or more on a single page. You object to people who disagree with you, regardless of what name they use. If you stop acting like a wanker with the abuse you post daily, you won’t be abused in return.

                  1. As I said, you live in a rat latrine. That tells us there is more than one dumb rat and you are one of the dumber ones nervous that all the blame fall on one rat, you. You are a Coward.

                    “you won’t be abused in return.”

                    I don’t worry about such things but you are both an abuser and a Coward along with being Stupid.

                    John Say will stand up and provide facts and opinion that he will back up while you hide in the corner or run. You post little of consequence. If you stood up 1/100th of the way John stands up you might be able to garner a little respect. But you don’t have the brains or the inclination to open your thoughts to scrutiny. Run, run Cowardly rat.

                    Maybe I should change your name from Anonymous the Stupid to Anonymous the Coward.

          1. Because the Uhaul truck that hauled in equipment for B/urn/L/oot/M/urder has already been traced back to a Geo Soros Agents.

            Soros owns this treasonous Sedition! You sure you want to keep hanging out with that Trash?

    1. A reminder that we do not have a functioning Federal Election Commission right now and haven’t since July, because it lacks a quorum (which requires 4 commissioners, out of a normal total of 6). Trump hasn’t nominated replacements. It hasn’t had the full complement of 6 since 2017.

      Ellen Weintraub (current FEC commissioner and former chair):
      “In case anyone is unclear on the concept, in the United States of America, we do not “get rid of” ballots. We count them. Counting the ballots – *all* the ballots – is the way we determine who leads our country after our elections. The only way.”

    2. And Lincoln suspended Habeas Corpus after egregiously denying fully constitutional secession by the CSA. “Crazy Abe” went on to “fix” 1864. He totally destroyed constitutional America resulting in the current unconstitutional and foreign-invaded American welfare state.

      Oh yeah, then there’s that truth.

    3. CTHD:

      Do you have any idea of the absurdity of Democrats, who have promoted rioting, looting, burning, and anti-cop rhetoric, and have refused to accept that Trump won the election, expressing concern that he might not leave office? You do realize that he is saying he is going to win. He started to say there would be a transfer, but that’s declaring that he would lose. So he changed it to a declaration that he was going to win. There is no there, there.

      They are either planning on showing up with trunks full of ballots, all Democrat, or they are just manufacturing another false accusation. If there are allegations of miscounting or fraud, as in Florida with Bush v Gore, then there is a process for that. Hopefully we will have 9 Supreme Court justices at that time.

      The biggest concern is that there will be serious fraud, as in New Jersey, and who won the election will be up in the air. I voted via mail in ballot in an election, and according to the CA website where you can track its progress, it took 4 weeks. What if it takes 3 months to get all the ballots counted? This is the first time the nation has ever voted entirely by mail. There are going to be problems.

      If Trump is unable to get a Supreme Court nominee confirmed, and the Supreme Court deadlocks, what then? That could be a terrible Constitutional crisis. What do you do if there are an even number of judges and it’s stuck?

      1. Karen:

        He was asked “Win, lose or draw in this election, will you commit here today for a peaceful transferal of power after the election? … Will you commit to making sure that there is a peaceful transferal of power after the election?”
        He answered “Well, we’re gonna have to see what happens.”

        That is not an acceptable answer in a democracy.

        The only acceptable answer is “Yes, of course I commit to a peaceful transferal of power if I lose.”

        The Supreme Court has a 5-3 conservative majority, so it’s unlikely to split 4-4, but if it does split 4-4, then the ruling of the lower court stands.

        “That could be a terrible Constitutional crisis.”

        No, the court already has rules for what happens when there’s an even split (e.g., if one of the Justices has to recuse). Moreover, this situation with 8 Justices existed in 2016. Were you making this argument then, and arguing that they needed to confirm Garland in order to avoid a possible 4-4 split on a hypothetical case?

        1. He also said there is not going to be a transfer of power, cause he’s gonna win in a landslide that will undercut any question of who won.
          The mail in ballots will be used to just as effectively vote GOP, and the ploy will bite the Dems in the ass.

          1. No one knows who will win. Trump wants to believe that he’ll win in a landslide, but that doesn’t imply that his belief is true. People can guess, but no honest person would pretend to know,

            Both Republicans and Democrats have been using vote-by-mail for years, though fewer have used it than this year because of the pandemic. It isn’t a ploy on either side.

            1. One draws different conclusions when one notes the ballot harvesting in California. How many winners lot after the fact?

              Other points were made in NJ and NY along with the postman’s fraud the problems in Virginia and elsewhere.

              You are dishonest.

    4. How boneheaded stupid! Tis only you and others who suffer advanced condition of TDS thinking he wants to be a dictator. Hell, he has lost money doing this job! He gives his salary away. Are those acts of a Dictator?? You really need to return to your deep diving – in a pit toilet, that is!

      1. I think extreme Trump supporters are the ones with TDS.

        You have no idea whether “he has lost money doing this job,” since he hasn’t made his tax returns public. Although he’s donated his salary, he’s funneled over $1M in taxpayer monies into his own pockets via Secret Service room and golf-cart rentals every time he visits his properties every few days (https://www.businessinsider.com/secret-service-billed-1-million-trump-properties-rooms-wapo-2020-9), he’s funneled over $14M in Trump Campaign funds via spending at Trump properties, etc. I’d much rather that he take his salary and put his businesses into an actual blind trust. That’s why the Founders approved a significant salary.

        “Are those acts of a Dictator??”

        Funneling public funds into his pockets are definitely the act of a dictator. And there are others. I lived in a dictatorship while working overseas. Have you ever lived in a dictatorship?

  4. Trump isn’t a professional politician and breaking news: neither are most Americans. Trump puts words on exactly how Omar is received by what I would guess is a majority of Americans; a ungrateful immigrant with no personal moral capital, that hates America and is a “cheater” in the most real terms. To date she has been successful in eluding any accountability for her cheating the immigration system by marrying her own brother and for me, I wish we had a way to deport her. I hope Trump wins and the DOJ investigates the claims against her. I consider her ideological spews as nothing more than as the base bellows of any low level agitator and that she can hold a seat in Congress is repugnant to me. There are certainly moral, educated persons among the Somali immigrant population in that state, they should find one and elect that person. A lot of Americans would like to see her kicked to the curb and they think that at least Trump does it with words.

    1. Bingo. Again, the professor is steeped in a social matrix where what Mr. Sailer calls ‘leapfrogging loyalties’ are the norm. They will systematically favor exotics over the wage-earners who live two miles from them.

    2. Are you a QAnon believer too?
      Or do you limit your conspiracies to “cheating the immigration system by marrying her own brother”?

    3. It’s just like a new civil war, except that instead of geological divides, there are ideological divides and a unifying, emotionally driven, hatred for Trump.
      When a significant portion of the populace, including government administrators in high places, disagrees vehemently with another significant portion, the stage has been set for civil war.

      1. I agree Gary, although I believe the stage was set long ago. It’s just taken awhile to get to the point where we can easily identify the sides. Democrats must imagine themselves as Arnold, standing in a burned out clearing at the end of Predator. They have no idea the holy hell they are unleashing. You don’t take a culture of 320+ million people, with an overwhelming majority that believe in the security of rights, and suddenly expect them to take a knee to domestic terrorists.

  5. For the ignorant Anonymous that doesn’t know what is going on and wants other to prove it to them. Lazy and ignorant is a bad combination.

    The executive summary and the entire document is too long to post so I will provide an example.

    ” In early 2015 the former Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, George Kent, raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. Kent’s concerns went unaddressed, and in September 2016, he emphasized in an email to his colleagues, “Furthermore, the presence of Hunter Biden on the Burisma board was very awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine.”

    https://www.hsgac.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Ukraine%20Report_FINAL.pdf

    This document alone is the tip of the iceberg. There were 8 years of corruption with Biden as VP and many more years with Biden as Senator.

          1. Anonymous @6:59PM, I give you a +10.
            Signed, your comrade in Allan-provocation.

            He’s like a trained rat. He sees a comment from Anonymous, and he can’t keep himself from responding.
            Now he’s even posting in anticipation of a comment from one of us.

                1. Anonymous the Stupid, keep it up. You live in a rat latrine with your fellow rats. You are cowards so you swarm. I don’t worry when I deal with Stupid people that even when grouped together can’t make an intelligent comment.

            1. “He’s like a trained rat. He sees a comment from Anonymous, and he can’t keep himself from responding.
              “Now he’s even posting in anticipation of a comment from one of us.”

              All true. Thanks for laughs, Anonymous @7:07pm.

              1. Rats customarily swarm and that is what you guys do but you have little in the brains department. That is demonstrated every day. Keep laughing as you swarm around chasing each other’s tail. You get dumber by the minute.

                1. Downthread:

                  “Anonymous says: September 23, 2020 at 9:09 PM

                  Allan has once again won the “Douchebag of the Year” award.

                  He wins this award, year after year, in spite of the stiff competition.”

      1. Anonymous – what are you questioning? Whether concerns about impropriety with regards to Hunter Biden, or Joe Biden’s quid pro quo for Ukraine?

        Let me know where the confusion lies and I will provide supporting documents.

        But if you just want to chortle instead of discuss, carry on.

  6. Yep, this is one of those many examples where Trump says something and puts down land mines in his own path.

    What he should have said was that she is trying to recreate some of the problems that caused her family to flee from their country in the first place. Don’t repeat a failed experiment here, when you personally witnessed the consequences. Since she was so young at the time, she might not have made the connection or even known about what drove her former country into the ground.

    But he should have used phrases like her old country, or her former country, or the country she fled from.

    For some reason, my phone never rings with the President asking me what he should say. Pity.

    That said, every time I hear her name, I think about the very serious allegations of immigration fraud lodged against her. I’ll have to look into how that’s going.

  7. I am a grandchild of immigrants. King Donald the Mad is a grandchild of immigrants.

    Indeed, each and every one of us is descended from immigrants, save only those who immigrated.

      1. I recall Trumpy Bear said that his father was born in Germany, so he’s the child of immigrants, too. Trumpy Bear never lies, so disregard that fake birth certificate that says Fred Trump was born in the Bronx. So, how’s Trump’s real country, Germany, doing these days under Angela Merkel?

    1. Since when does being an immigrant exempt one from being criticised. You come from a nation of warlords with total countrol of the population. You become a citizen of a country that affords representation to all and yet you still tell us that centralized government should be the goal. The President left out “look at the country of your birth”, but he was saying, look at where you came from in comparison to where you are now and show some appreciation. We all know that her motivation is purely altruistic.

      1. Turley says “I can’t believe there’s politiken going on in this here establishment”. “I’m shocked I tell you, simply shocked “. A slow day for subjects to write about.

    2. Nope. Your grandparents immigrated to a country that my great-great-great-great-great-great grandparents founded that was carved from a wilderness by their great grandparents.

        1. It actually wasn’t anymore due to a plague event (which is indeed documented). The Native Americans were not traditionally nomadic people. Doesn’t change things on the face, but it sure debunks your knowledge of historical fact.

  8. Turley picks the easy ones to denounce Trump and his motor-mouth. Of course, any reasonable person who isn’t racist or a misogynist knows that what he said is outrageous, so Turley criticizes him, so he can say that he’s not pro-Trump. However, Turley routinely overlooks Trump’s daily lying, especially about the pandemic, which will cause unnecessary deaths, and has nothing to say about the other outrageous things der fuehrer says. Today’s post does not change the fact that Turley is clearly pro-Trump.

      1. Turley calling himself a liberal years ago and then working for the Republican party is not a liberal, he’s a libertarian that takes republican money. Gary Johnson wanted him on the SCOTUS in 2016.

        1. in my book liberals and liberterians suffer from many of the same errors.

          i realize you Democrat cheerleaders consider them different, but, they’re pretty much the same. & you are not much on understanding political ideology, or else you would not be lead so easily by the nose by centi-billionaires like Mikey Bloomberg

          1. Kurtz, being lead by the nose is not a term you should use. After all, everyone knows that Trump supporters all have rings in their noses. And it gets pulled by the liar-in-chief everyday.

  9. It’s telling that Prof. Turley should staunchly defend anti-America Ilhan Omar. Equally telling is that Turley calls appropriate attacks on this anti-America creature “disgraceful.” But what Turley has demonstrated in this article is the HE is disgraceful.

    1. Turley is not a disgrace. He is a principled liberal. I know they are rare birds, but this article is consistent.

      I applaud Turley’s honorable political stances even when I do not fully agree. Here, I reject Omar and decline to criticize Trump.

      But I celebrate Turley’s right to express his opinion and thank him for this blog comments area.

      1. You are delusional. To have principles, a person must pass the “shoe on the other foot” test. Prof. Turley repeated fails that test. However, he does apply double-standards consistently. And if that’s what you meant, you are correct. For example, Prof. Turley was a staunch advocate of terrorist supporter Sami Amin Al-Arian, a “Palestinian” political activist and convicted felon, and served as his attorney. Al-Arian was indicted in February 2003 on 17 counts under the Patriot Act. Al-Arian was ultimately deported to Turkey on February 4, 2015. So, naturally Turley would support anti-America, pro-terrorist Ihan Omar.

        1. Feldman. stick it in your ear. I am not “delusional.”

          Turley is a principled liberal and principled lawyers have a track record for representing difficult clients.

          I have represented some difficult clients myself, though I am no liberal, I am still a lawyer and committed to our system of due process in which accused persons and clients in general have a right to counsel.

          There is no “naturally” anything in your over the top comment about Turley.

  10. If you can call a tick on a dog’s neck a citizen of the dog, or a leech a citizen of the fish it’s draining – in that regard Omar’s an american. But so technically are the isis brides who want to return.

  11. Naturalization Acts of 1790, 1795, 1798 and 1802

    United States Congress, “An act to establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization,” March 26, 1790

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, That any Alien being a free white person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof
    ___________________________________________________________________________________

    This was the law until the lawbreaking criminal, “Crazy Abe” Lincoln, suspended Habeas Corpus, formed a violent gang, killed one million Americans and illegally took over the country by brutal force.

    No law-abiding, peace-loving, patriotic American he.

  12. Omar et al. are not assimilated “Americans.” Like mixing oil and water, assimilation is and always will be impossible. Unconstitutional political emulsifiers are required to force that false amalgamation, such as affirmative action, generational welfare, quotas, social services, forced busing, Obamacare, WIC, TANF, HAMP, HARP, HUD, HHS, etc., etc., etc.

    Omar et al. are parasitic invaders who professed their desire for “freedom,” when truth was, they came for all the “free stuff” they could acquire, as bestowed by America-hating communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) who pursue the destruction of America.

    Give us all your money!

    Tear those statues down!

    1. Pretty much how most traditional Americans have always understood this situation. Omar is just the icing on the cake with her pronounced vitriol.

  13. “It was a shocking attack “

    No it wasn’t

    Omar is anti-American and probably a criminal based on everything we know about her. She supports violence and is an anti-Semite. Her supporters include Angela Davis, an avowed Marxist, and others like her. Omar’s father was the propaganda arm of the Marxist/Stalinist leader of Somalia. The family fled when that leader fell.

    Her families entry (her father) into the US was illegal because he didn’t reveal his communist background on his naturalization form. Questions of illegality continue to trouble her because of her illegal use of campaign funds and her marital (example: marriage to her brother) and other extramarital affairs that appear to have violated the law.

    Let’s call her what she truly is and stop with the girlie game played by children.

    1. There are lots of marxists out there but most of them are not terrorists like Angela Davis
      and unlike most of them Angela Davis actually won a “Lenin prize”
      Angela Davis is a terrorist. She bought and provided guns to criminals who took over a Marin County courtroom and took hostages. This ended up with the judge and three black men getting killed. Her straw man purchases of firearms supplied murder weapons.. Then she was a forgive from justice.

      somehow she beat the rap with a lot of money from the usual suspects and clever lawyers

      she also studied under Marcuse and was employed by the California University system as a socalled philosopher.

      Only in California do they hire terrorists to be professors. Oh wait, probably we can add some more rogue states to that by now.

      1. “most of them are not terrorists like Angela Davis”

        Kurtz, Omar probably could be considered a Marxist/Stalinist and that would place her closer to being a terrorist. I don’t believe one has to physically commit a terrorist act in order to be one. Professor Turley seems not to recognize this type of danger until it is too late. I am not saying that Omar’s political beliefs are to be forbidden, rather I think Turley’s comment about a shocking attack on her is a bit naive. It wasn’t shocking at all. She is dangerous and at present she is a major force in the democrat party. That is what is shocking.

        1. Turley is generous and a principled liberal. That is sometimes naive I agree. But in his case I feel he is a man of principle.

          Nonetheless i reject Omar in every way.

          Angela Davis is a step below Omar. she was a despicable terrorist and yet as you can see from my short biography of her, the American Left has lionized her for nigh 50 years.

          It just goes to show that the rot is deep in our country and likely this problem will never be resolved by words alone.

    2. Allan is anti-American and probably a criminal based on everything we know about him. He supports violence and is an anti-Semite. Let’s call him what he truly is and stop with the boyish game played by children.

      1. Yes, Anonymous. I wish that Allan and all his paint chip buddies would move on from this site. They don’t add anything to the discussion.

          1. Art Deco says: “Another sock-puppet, Peter? I’ve lost track of how many you’re using”.

            We have no idea who ‘Peter’ is. But Art Deco has been known as Numchaka, Insufferable, Tabby, Darren This Is Ridiculous, Absurd, etc, etc.

        1. Manny, would you mind if I referred to you as Anonymous the Stupid and ½? Ask the girls at the nail salon what they prefer?

          1. ALLAN PROMOTES DUBIOUS BAR

            Here, once again, Allan promotes a bar known as ‘The Nail Salon’. On weekends Allan often mentions that he will be at ‘The Nail Salon’. Apparently he thinks other commenters here are interested in knowing his agenda.

            1. Manny, Anonymous the Stupid and ½, I don’t go to nail salons. That is your turf along with all the craziness you encompass. By the way I didn’t know you were at the nail salon until a bunch of people mentioned it. It made sense so it stuck. There is so much about you that is strange.

              1. Allan has once again won the “Douchebag of the Year” award.

                He wins this award, year after year, in spite of the stiff competition.

  14. NEWSFLASH – FBI is totally corrupt and Christopher Wray knew all.

    FBI Agent Who Uncovered Weiner Laptop with Hillary’s Emails says FBI Leadership Told Him to Erase All of His Findings
    By Joe Hoft
    – John Robertson, was an FBI Agent who investigated crimes against children. This is how he stumbled upon Hillary Clinton’s emails.
    – We first reported on Robertson in August of 2018 when the mainstream media was focused on the Trump Russia Mueller sham investigation.
    – John was assigned to the Anthony Weiner case, a top Democrat married to Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin. During his investigation of Weiner’s computer John discovered thousands of Hillary Clinton emails and blew the whistle on the Comey-McCabe and Strzok cover-up of evidence.
    “The crickets I was hearing was really making me uncomfortable because something was going to come down,” Robertson said he later told Justice Department investigators. “Why isn’t anybody here? Like if I’m the supervisor of any [counterintelligence] squad … and I hear about this, I’m getting on with headquarters and saying, ‘Hey, some agent working child porn here may have [Hillary Clinton] emails. Get your ass on the phone, call [the case agent], and get a copy of that drive,’ because that’s how it should be. And that nobody reached out to me within, like, that night, I still to this day don’t understand what the hell went wrong.” Robertson wrote a “Letter to Self” in late October after an Oct. 19, 2016, meeting, during which he implored Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Kramer of the Southern District of New York to push FBI leadership to look at the thousands of emails he had unearthed.

  15. Omar can have an opinion when she becomes a real member of Congress . There are four requirements. Citizenship, age, votes and taking the oath of office. So far the four Squats have refused to take the required oath . Which means that someone had to slide her in under the table and who might that be? None other than Comrade Pelosi who is now busy stickingi it to her own party members and their children. And you are going to vote for this POS?

  16. Actually, the United States IS NOT a “nation of immigrants.” The country was founded by the descendants of COLONISTS, not “immigrants.” Many, many Americans roots go back 400 years or more. Some go back thousands of years. Immigrants were allowed into the country and encouraged but to assimilate, not continue to identify with another country as Omar does. Incidentally, her “immigration” to the United States is very controversial and there are holes in her claims of “fleeing” Somalia. Many modern Americans such as Turley are from families who came here to exploit and reap the benefits of the work of others. There’s good reason so many settled in large metropolitan areas like Chicago and New York, or in Omar’s case, Minneapolis. If the woman was American, she wouldn’t identify as a Somalia Muslim.

    1. If Scalia was American, he wouldn’t have identified as an Italian American Catholic.
      See how stupid your argument is?

  17. How should anyone lest among us retort to these quote about yourself. They are direct from Representative IIhan Omar.

    “Right now, even when we’re talking about the president, people will say, you know, his remarks are racist, and we’ll forget the inherent racism that has always been part of him,” Omar said—————
    New York Times Editorial July 25, 2019
    The only way to push back is to be unequivocal about our values. It is not enough to condemn Mr. Trump’s racism. We must affirmatively confront racist policies — whether the caging of immigrant children at the border or the banning of Muslim immigrants or the allowing of segregation in public housing. It is not enough to condemn the corruption and self-dealing of this administration. We must support policies that unmistakably improve working people’s lives, including by strengthening collective bargaining, raising the minimum wage and pursuing a universal jobs guarantee.———————

    “He is launching a blatantly racist attack on four duly elected members of the United States House of Representatives, all of whom are women of color. This is the agenda of white nationalists. Whether it is happening in chat rooms or it’s happening on national TV, and now it’s reached the White House garden.”
    Omar concluded her remarks by saying that it’s time for them to “impeach this president” and “stop allowing this president to make a mockery out of our Constitution.”————————-
    Should the President just let them go without rebuttal? Not defend himself against such outlandish comments about his character? I’ll repost what I wrote yesterday for consideration.—————————————-

    Quotes from “Ethics of the Fathers” may help those with steeled positions
    Joshua the son of Perachia would say: Assume for yourself a master, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge every man to the side of merit.———–
    Judah the son of Tabbai would say: When sitting in judgment, do not act as a counselor-at-law. When the litigants stand before you, consider them both guilty; and when they leave your courtroom, having accepted the judgment, regard them as equally righteous.——–
    Shimon the son of Shotach would say: Increasingly cross-examine the witnesses. Be careful with your words, lest they learn from them how to lie.——–
    Avtalyon would say: Scholars, be careful with your words. For you may be exiled to a place inhabited by evil elements [who will distort your words to suit their negative purposes]. The disciples who come after you will then drink of these evil waters and be destroyed, and the Name of Heaven will be desecrated.——–
    Rabbi Shimon the son of Gamliel would say: By three things is the world sustained: law, truth and peace. As is stated (Zachariah 8:16), “Truth, and a judgment of peace, you should administer at your [city] gates.”———-
    Then there is the often used statement from Matthew “Judge not, that ye be not judged” “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again”.—————-
    Today we see that the Democrats’ are determined to redefine our Republic as a closed Anocracy! I just hope the public sees the faults of such a seismic shift and rejects their candidates for public office.

  18. She can dish it out but can’t take it. “Inspirational” my eye. She has shown nothing but contempt for our country. She should go back from where she came from.

      1. Only because our regime in immigration law is hopelessly lax. She isn’t in spirit. And no, she does not merely have ‘views different’.

      2. You can live in America. You can be a citizen of America. And still be unAmerican. There are citizens living here who hate this country as much as bin laden ever did.
