The real reason Ilhan Omar keeps pressing the antisemitism button

When a member of the House of Representatives receives a rebuke from their own party for irresponsible words, standard operating procedure on Capitol Hill is to go under the radar for a bit until the controversy dies down. Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has chosen to take the opposite approach, doubling- and tripling-down on her antisemitic stances to the point that another rebuke from Democratic leaders appears to be on her horizon.

Is she just a glutton for punishment or is there a strategy behind her actions? Unfortunately, it’s the latter. She knows exactly what she’s doing.

To understand her goals, we have to examine the trends of the Democratic Party itself. The leftward lurch of the party has been well documented and reiterated in recent weeks by the stances taken by their early presidential candidates. This is no longer the party of compassion and tolerance they pretended to be for decades. The new Democratic Party is driven by hate, divisiveness, and a deep-seeded anti-Americanism that relies on conflict against President Trump to push their hidden narrative. They have become a parody of themselves, fighting intolerance by being intolerant, opposing violence by inciting violence, and embracing radical ideas simply because they’re radical.

I’ve seen a dangerous shift in the way leftists view the world as I engage with friends I once regarded as “sensible progressives.” One friend in particular who I thought was starting to understand the necessity and value of capitalism shocked me when he declared he loved every word her heard from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Keep in mind that just four or five years ago, we were having a nice discussion about how his views from college have been changing since he graduated. Upon joining the real world and fighting to get his show on television, he realized why capitalism made sense. The idea that he deserved things because he wanted them was replaced by the truth of earning things by working hard for them.

Crowdfunded. Conservative. Christian. Please donate today.

Now that he’s successful, he’s ready to embrace socialistic ideas once again. His reasoning: AOC inspired him to “demand better” even if it seemed impossible. I was a little shaken, not because she brought back his former leftism but because his reasons were based on an inspiring individual rather than a series of lucid ideas.

I know this because I made the mistake of asking him the unanswerable question, “How is she going to pay for it?”

What followed was the worst thing I could have heard from an intelligent friend.

“I don’t care,” he said, and the wasn’t an ounce of concern or regret in his face.

This mentality is emerging as the common bond between all of the newfound craziness in the Democratic Party. The base truly doesn’t care whether something is possible. They don’t really care if any of these ideas will actually work. What’s worse is they don’t care if the claims made by Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Beto O’Rourke, or Elizabeth Warren are even true.

Truth is relative to the modern day hyper-leftist. That should terrify us all.

The reason Omar will continue to express her antisemitic views regardless of what her party’s leaders do to her is because the growing base of people who are falling for her charms will only continue to support her if she doesn’t back down.

In many ways, they are pulling from President Trump’s playbook. The more outrageous an idea, the more the base will support it. How many Trump supporters believed him when he repeatedly said Mexico was going to pay for the wall? Now they’re doing logical gymnastics to say Mexico is paying for it through the trade deal he negotiated.

No, they’re not, and if anyone tries to tell me that’s what he was saying all along on the campaign trail, I’ll regrettably classify them in the same category as Omar’s rabid fans who say she’s not antisemitic.

It’s not her message that’s resonating and making people like her. It’s her defiance that endears her to her base, and no matter what message she gives them, they’ll always see her as being correct.

Democrats hang all hope on a public release and a bad interpretation of Mueller report

Republicans are dancing in the virtual streets of social media today after Attorney General William Barr released a letter summarizing the report he received from special counsel Robert Mueller on his 2-year Russian election interference investigation.

Despite the President’s Tweet, Democrats are pointing out a single line in the document. While there was no collusion, Mueller’s report states that “while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him” on the obstruction of justice issue.

But, as House Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows pointed out, exoneration is not the responsibility of the investigator.

Now, Democrats are ramping up their calls to release the entire report to the public. Their hope is that Barr’s letter does not properly characterize what the Mueller investigation found. If it has enough evidence to point to collusion or obstruction of justice in the eyes of the general public, that would be nearly as good as actual indictments.

Their two roadblocks, of course, would be the public release of the government, which the President has called for, and evidence that can be pinpointed and spun in a way that makes it appear as if Mueller was either close to having enough evidence or chose to ignore the evidence in his decision to not recommend indictments.

It’s unclear whether the report will actually be released despite the Democrats’ calls and the President’s Tweet. It’s up to Barr, which most assume means it’s up to the President himself. If there’s evidence in there that can paint him in a negative light, it’s very possible the Attorney General will hold back on releasing it.

A third option, which has already been floated, is for Democrats to subpoena Mueller to testify about the investigation before Congress. This would given him an opportunity to describe the evidence they found in the investigation without the report itself being released. It would be one of the most well-watched testimonies in history, even bigger than Michael Cohen’s testimony last month, because most people have never heard Mueller say anything. He has been very reticent throughout the investigation and has condemned the handful of leaks that hit the press from his team.

For now, the Trump administration and his supporters can breath a sigh of relief. How long that lasts will depend on what’s in the report itself. If there’s not enough to publicly demonize the President or those close to him, then we’ll likely see a release. If there’s more fodder for controversy and ammunition that can be used in the 2020 election, Barr’s summary may be all we ever see.

Democrats are latching onto anything they can in order to justify their loud accusations and false conclusions they made before the report deflated them. Watching mainstream media and Hollywood cry may be the most enjoyable part of all this.

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tax lien actually matters

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs tax lien actually matters

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a tax lien against her for a failed business venture from 2012. She owes $1,877.56 in unpaid corporate taxes. No big deal, right? Things happen.

I would actually be in the camp who’s currently calling this a nothingburger except for one major point. She still hasn’t paid it. It’s not an insignificant amount, but it’s also not an amount that needs to linger for years, and especially not for two weeks after an aide said she would be paying it immediately. Why didn’t she? Why are lawyers looking it instead?

But on Thursday, her aide Corbin Trent said that the Congresswoman’s lawyers were looking into the matter.

It’s one thing to say, “Oops,” and get it paid. It’s another thing altogether to say, “Oops,” then not get it paid, then get lawyers involved in the matter. This isn’t something one would consider contestable; she started a business venture, it failed, now she owes money. As a member of the House of Representatives, and as a socialist who believes in taking people’s money and redistributing it, she should be willing to pay off her debt to the government as quickly as possible.

This will go down as one of the many peculiarities about the Congresswoman that she’s probably going to blame on conservative media. After all, socialism and personal responsibility don’t usually go hand-in-hand.

Joe Biden is considering Stacey Abrams as his running mate. Why hasn’t he declared yet?

Joe Biden is considering Stacyy Abrams as his running mate Why hasnt he declared yet

The Joe Biden saga keeps getting stranger every week. While most anticipate the former Vice President is going to run for President in 2020, he still hasn’t announced despite most of the major candidates who were expected to run have already made their announcement. Now, a report that his staff is considering asking former Democratic contender for Georgia Governor Stacey Abrams continues to add fuel to speculation while also making this whole thing even more strange.

In 2016, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) made the rare move of announcing his Vice Presidential candidate, Carly Fiorina, before securing the nomination. It was a desperate move at a time when his prospects for defeating Donald Trump were fading and it didn’t work out. Biden’s alleged move is very different. He’s ahead in the very early polls even before the first debate, let alone the Iowa caucus. Yet speculating about a potential VP seems out of place, just like everything else in this whole debacle.

My theory is he’s trying to minimize the potential attack channels by cautiously field-testing everything first. By gathering data without officially announcing a run, he has the luxury of riding the speculation train as long as he can. He would be the instant frontrunner if he were to announce, but if history tells us anything, frontrunner status rarely means much. Hillary Clinton was the frontrunner from beginning to end in 2016, but even then the speculation of a late run by Biden was appealing to many Democrats.

Biden likely fears being the early frontrunner will generate fatigue for his name being tossed around so often. It’s still early; at this point in 2015, only one major GOP candidate, Cruz, had officially announced his run. Biden wants to ride the speculation as long as possible knowing once he’s officially in, he’s open to attacks. Just as his old boss President Obama did in 2008, some lesser known high-energy candidate could sneak up on the frontrunner and knock them off quickly. In 2015, Jeb Bush and Scott Walker were early frontrunners before being embarrassingly tossed aside by Trump and the other candidates.

Whether or not Biden selects Abrams, and if she’s willing to take the nomination, this type of speculation allows him to stay in the news while people continue to hold their collective breath about a future announcement.

Bottom line, he’s running. He’s been running for a while. The fact that he’s not official yet only plays into the fundraising he’s missing, which he’ll be able to make up quickly once he announces. All in all, the Democratic race is turning hilarious.
