Ilan Omar Used Foreign Propaganda Script When Grilling Elliot Abrams

 

Home Sweet Home
Mogadishu

The only question I had of Rep, Omar was who gave you your attack points at the time of the Foreign Relations Committee hearing with Diplomat Abrams?

You seemed to have a wealth of decades old information considering you were still wandering the cesspool city called Mogadishu when the events you were discussing occurred.

A comparison of texts shows that Rep. Ilan Omar cribbed from Qatar’s state-owned Al Jazeera to script her diatribe against senior American diplomat Elliott Abrams.

Al Jazeera ran a story, “Who is Elliott Abrams, US special envoy for Venezuela?” on February 12. It had no byline.

Omar recycled the story in her scripted attack against Abrams at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on February 13. The video of the hearing shows that Omar did not publicly inform the Committee that she was quoting from a foreign state-funded propaganda source.

 

The key themes from the Al Jazeera article match with Omar’s comments to Abrams, and appear in the same order. Some of the phrasing is similar and sometimes identical. Here is one for comparison:

First theme: Helping Nicaraguan contras and pardoned by Bush

 

 

 

Al Jazeera: “In 1991, he [Abrams] pleaded guilty to two counts of misleading Congress about the Reagan administration’s efforts to help the Nicaraguan guerrillas (known as the Contras) during a period when Congress had banned such aid. He was later pardoned by George HW Bush.”

Omar to Abrams: “Mr. Adams [sic], in 1991, you pleaded guilty to two counts of withholding information from Congress regarding your involvement in the Iran-Cortra [sic] affair, for which you were later pardoned by President George H. W. Bush.”

For more examples go to Center for Security Policy:

This writer, as a former graduate school professor, would have failed a student for cribbing words, facts, and narratives without citing the source. A quick check of online plagiarism detection services shows that Omar did plagiarize her material:

Ilhan Omar schedules fundraisers with terror tied groups

 

 

How much more of this are we willing to tolerate? While we may find ourselves amused at Cortez’s outlandish proposals…..(We may be laughing at our own peril)… this little number, one Ilhan Omar, is an outright danger.

I would like to think that the installation of our newest AG Barr yesterday might have some interest in slowing her down. Still ringing in my head are Barr’s words- his being best friends with Mueller. Sigh….

Newly elected Rep. Ilhan Omar will jet off to Los Angeles next month to keynote a fundraiser for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a terror-tied organization that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist financing case in U.S. history.

On March 23, Omar will speak at CAIR-Los Angeles’ 4th Annual Valley Banquet, where tables will cost $500.

“CAIR-LA is honored to have Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as the featured speaker for the 4th Annual Valley Banquet,” reads a press release from the Los Angeles chapter of the group that was formed as a Hamas support network in the United States.

She will deliver her address alongside CAIR-Florida director Hassan Shibly, according to a CAIR flier promoting the event. Shibly is a dedicated Islamist and bigoted gay basher. A fan of radical clerics, he has routinely refused to categorize U.S.-designated terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations, according to the Clarion Project. Moreover, Shibly regularly takes to social media to demonize the U.S. military as equivalent to the jihadi terrorists that they are fighting.

P.S. Homosexuality is not the only topic on which Mr. Shibly’s views can be said to be very extreme. Lots of material here.

Here is what we are bringing into our colleges.

CAIR-Florida Executive Director Hassan Shibly address at the St. Petersburg College – Institute of Strategic Policy Solutions

….

CAIR’s fundraiser is just one of the controversial events lined up for Omar’s schedule. On February 23, she will speak at a fundraiser for Islamic Relief USA, the American branch of the terror-tied group Islamic Relief Worldwide. The Middle East Forum has discovered that she will be accompanied by a senior charity official who has often “expressed violently anti-Semitic ideas on his social-media accounts,” sometimes specifically calling for the murder of Jews. Islamic Relief has been banned by Israel and the UAEfor allegedly funneling money to terrorist organizations.

The Mexican Border – a No Man’s Land

 

Basically, a no-man’s land

By Mustang

 

Mr. Jim Chilton is 89-years old. He’s a fifth-generation cattle rancher

who, in spite of his age, still runs the Chilton Ranch at Arivaca, Arizona. It is a 50,000-acre spread outside Tucson, much of which abuts the Mexican border. Chilton’s truck can be frequently seen heading in one direction or another on the ranch, but no matter on what day or what time of day, Mr. Chilton is likely to spot armed members of a dangerous Mexican drug cartel moving with impunity along a favored illegal-immigration track. “It’s still the wild west out here,” he said.

 

Chilton’s only barrier to illegal activity from Mexico is a three-strand barbed-wire fence, which is about as effective as screen-doors on a submarine. The rancher estimates that around 4,000 drug-packers cut across through his land each year. But its more than drugs —it is also illegal immigrants. They’re not just from Mexico; they come from all around the world. What makes his land dangerous to both himself and his wife is that these illegal aliens are desperate to seek out a new life in the United States, at the taxpayer’s expense.

A desperate man is a dangerous man. Jim said, “You used to get old fashioned coyotes who would bring people across. They’d get $200 or $300 from each of ‘em, the fee for guiding them into the US. Now the operation is run by a cartel. They have scouts on top of our mountains. They charge about $3,000 for Mexicans, $7,000 to $9,000 for Central Americans, and between $25,000 and $75,000 for Asians. Most of the people coming through are just looking for work; they come from Guatemala, Honduras, and other Central American states. We’ve also had Iraqis come through, people from states in the Middle East, but most of the arrests made by the Border Patrol are from Guatemala.”

Chilton —who manages the ranch with his wife— describes the illegal activity as a national security issue. He believes that the border wall proposed by President Trump should be built because with the nearest Border Patrol station 80 miles away, there is no security for the Chilton’s. “It looks like the government has given up the fight,” he said.

Chilton has long warned the US government that the few strands of fence that separate Mexico from the United States is overwhelmingly inefficient keeping anyone out of the United States. “The lack of a serious barrier, combined with the Border Patrol’s enforcement decisions have effectively ceded miles of US territory to the Sinaloa Cartel, which stations guards on the mountains overlooking the ranch.” It was precisely this lack of barriers and few border agents that resulted in the ambush of a federal officer.

Drugs and illegal immigrants are a lucrative business, and according to Mr. Chilton, armed members of the drug cartel in Mexico controls much of his land. “They carefully time their movements to avoid being seen. The Border Patrol don’t come out here —they’ve left this area basically available to the cartel. It’s basically a no-man’s land.” Federal officials labeled the ambush as “A shooting incident,” but according to Mr. Chilton, if it wasn’t for the agent’s bullet-proof vest, he wouldn’t be alive today.

Mr. Chilton opined that the shooting could have been averted had the government taken our border security more seriously. “President Trump needs to complete the wall and fill the 25-mile gap and move the Border Patrol to the international boundary rather than 80 miles from the boundary.”

Brandon Judd, a Border Patrol agent (who also serves as President of the National Border Patrol Council) said that the area of the Chilton Ranch “is one of our most dangerous stretches on the border. It cries out for Mr. Trump’s wall,” he added. “If we had a wall in this location, the shooting would never have taken place.”

In a statement to the Washington Times, Judd said, “Unfortunately, our agency is still run by the Obama holdovers that gave us the failed open-border policies and operations of the past. Until serious changes are made, we will not be able to secure the border with those that refused to embrace the president’s vision on border security.”

Personally, I think that if Mr. Trump isn’t serious about border security, he ought to say so. If he is serious about it, then by all means —let’s take Mr. Chilton’s and Mr. Judd’s advice to heart and build the damn thing,

Kavanaugh hearing outrage? Try ‘Feminist’ Muslim Linda Sasour arrest!

 

My pick for the most outrageous moment, is the Sharia loving Sarsour getting the limelight for one nanosecond. The various reports of her notoriety in this latest escapee define her as the leader of the “Women’s Movement.”  Really? When are women going to disown this person who represents the worst of misogyny? I don’t need to list how disgusting women are treated by the Muslim faith. Not bad enough? She supports the Inman behind the bombing of the World Trade Center. I include the clip.

 

Linda Sarsour, the Sharia law-loving, hijab-clad leader of the Women’s March, was arrested for disorderly conduct at the Kavanaugh hearing.

Women’s March protesters probably don’t even know who they are protesting. The night Trump announced Kavanaugh as his next SCOTUS nominee, the Women’s March sent out a frantic press release to protest Kavanaugh and they forgot to fill in the empty box where his name was supposed to be printed.

Sarsour is very upset with what Brett Kavanaugh may mean to women’s rights.

She was so angry that she started screaming and was tossed from the hearing.

Sarsour caught on camera talks about her mentor WTC terrorist Siraj Wahhaj

 

I just happened to do a “look back” this past Saturday as part of an update or “whatever happened to”. Flashback: Where in the world is Linda Sarsour Pro-Hamas Democrat Party activist?

In the post I included a video of her support of Siraj Wahhaj.

Now we know much more about her mentor Siraj Wahhaj.

Son of Imam Linked to WTC Bombing Kept Children in ‘Filthy’ Compound, Allegedly Trained Them to Shoot Up Schools

Horrifying details emerged on Wednesday in the case of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of an imam linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, who was arrested in New Mexico on charges of keeping 11 starving children in a filthy compound. According to court documents filed by prosecutors, Wahhaj was training the children to carry out school shootings.

Prosecutors asked the judge to hold Wahhaj without bond for felony child abuse. He is also the subject of an extradition warrant from Georgia on charges of kidnapping his own son from the state in December. His son was not among the starving children rescued from the compound. There are fears the remains of an as-yet unidentified child found at the compound could be Wahhaj’s son.

Prosecutors said on Wednesday that Wahhaj and four accomplices possessed an AR-15 rifle and four pistols with ample ammunition and were training the children to commit school shootings.

Let’s take another look again at the clip of our gal Sarsour. (As long as YouTube keeps it up)

 

Pro-Hamas Democrat Party activist & surrogate Linda Sarsour CAUGHT ON CAMERA asking her “mentor”, Siraj Wahhaj who is a co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing to support El-Sayed who is running for Governor of Michigan. She is speaking at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)

While speaking to a group of Muslims at the 54th Annual ISNA Convention, Pro-Hamas activist and Democrat mouthpiece Linda Sarsour, who has been campaigning for Abdul El-Sayed in Michigan, expressed how much she admires her “mentor” Siraj Wahhaj, and asked him to financially support Abdul’s campaign.

Siraj Wahhaj is a co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing.

Clapper: ‘Thinking Of Something Else’ When he Lied To Congress

 

Keep in mind, Senator Wyden knows that metadata on every single one of us is being kept at the Utah Data Center.

Every itty bitty bit of everything we do say or may even be thinking is kept. Stored in a facility that is large enough to store everyone’s information for one hundred years. Wyden is very upset about it. He knowingly wants to nail Clapper down. Clapper knows he knows.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper claimed Tuesday that he “made a mistake,” but that he didn’t lie when he told Sen. Ron Wyden in 2013 that the National Security Agency doesn’t collect data on Americans.

Clapper was defending himself on “The View” after President Donald Trump called him a “lying machine.”

A report from The Guardian later that year showed that Clapper’s statement was false, that the NSA does collect phone metadata on millions of Americans.

Keep reading…

 

We have the short Wyden take down.

Ron Wyden’s exchange with Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. 2013

Then Clapper on “The View” – move it along to about 3:00 if your short on time:

I will add the chilling clip of the Utah Data Center being built. It is now up and running. He states on The View that he was in “a bad place” to reveal he was spying essentially on every single one of us, since the program was Classified.

 

 

UPDATE: For an even better explaining, see an old post 2013. Clapper offers his “metaphor” explanation as to why he lied.

 

NSA Utah Data Spy Center Revealed

This is what Clapper termed “Classified” and that is “The bad place he was in” ???  We weren’t suppose to know about it!!

Filmed from Redwood Road, you can see the progress of the NSA’s Utah Data Center also called the NSA Spy Center.

Bombshell: Report confirms U.S. coalition struck deal with ISIS, Permanent bases set up

Once again, Americans give blood and treasure and in return our government lies to us, the media fails to report that we are setting up shop in one more country. Syria. We make our bargain with the devil. In this case, giving away the Syrian oil fields. Selling out the Kurds in the process. The swamp is alive and well.

I will give you the concluding paragraph of the post:

So it appears that the US allowed ISIS terrorists to freely leave areas under coalition control, according to no less than the BBC, while at the same time attempting to make the case before the public that a permanent Pentagon presence is needed in case of ISIS’ return. But it’s a familiar pattern by now: yesterday’s proxies become today’s terrorists, which return to being proxies again, all as part of justifying permanent US military presence on another nation’s sovereign territory………

And astoundingly, even foreign fighters who had long vowed to carry out attacks in Europe and elsewhere were part of the deal brokered under the sponsorship of the US coalition in Syria. According to According to the BBC report

 America’s Syrian adventure went from public declarations of “we’re staying out” to “just some logistical aid to rebels” to “okay, some mere light arms to fight the evil dictator” to “well, a few anti-tank missiles wouldn’t hurt” to “we gotta bomb the new super-bad terror group that emerged!” to “ah but no boots on the ground!” to “alright kinetic strikes as a deterrent” to “but special forces aren’t really boots on the ground per se, right?” to yesterday’s Mattis declaration of an open-ended commitment. And on and on it goes.

At a moment of widespread acknowledgement that the short-lived Islamic State is no longer a reality, and as ISIS is about to be defeated by the Syrian Army in its last urban holdout of Abu Kamal City in eastern Syria, the US is signalling an open-ended military presence in Syria. On Monday Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon that the US is preparing for a long term military commitment in Syria to fight ISIS “as long as they want to fight.”

Mattis indicated that even should ISIS loose all of its territory there would still be a dangerous insurgency that could morph into an “ISIS 2.0” which he said the US would seek to prevent. “The enemy hasn’t declared that they’re done with the area yet, so we’ll keep fighting as long as they want to fight,” Mattis said. “We’re not just going to walk away right now before the Geneva process has traction.”

Snip..

Meanwhile Turkey once again reiterated that the US has 13 bases in Syria, though the US-backed Syrian YPG has previously indicated seven US military bases in northern Syria. The Pentagon, however, would not confirm base locations or numbers – though only a year-and-a-half ago the American public was being assured that there would be “no boots on the ground” due to mission creep in Syria.

During the last year of the Obama administration, State Department spokesman John Kirby was called out multiple times by reporters for tell obvious and blatant lies concerning “boots on the ground” in Syria.

Remember this? “We are not going to be involved in a large scale combat mission on the ground in Syria. That is what the president [Obama] has long said.”
“It all depends what your definition of ‘boot’ is” John Kirby, State Department Spokesperson. U.S. Department of State – Daily Briefing: Apr.25.2016

According to yesterday’s bombshell BBC report:

 The BBC has uncovered details of a secret deal that let hundreds of Islamic State fighters and their families escape from Raqqa, under the gaze of the US and British-led coalition and Kurdish-led forces who control the city. A convoy included some of IS’s most notorious members and – despite reassurances – dozens of foreign fighters. Some of those have spread out across Syria, even making it as far as Turkey.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Omar fields falling into hands of SDF could well have been part of a Quid pro quo deal that allowed ISIS to leave Raqqa for allowing SDF to capture Omar oil field after ISIS attacks  positions.
