Ann Coulter tells Howie Carr: Replace Roy Moore with Congressman Mo Brooks

Published

on

Best-seller authoress and columnist Ann Coulter told the host of the syndicated “Howie Carr Show” that she is giving up on the GOP’s Alabama Senate nominee Roy S. Moore and calling for the former judge to be replaced by Rep. Morris J. “Mo” Brooks, who lost in the Aug. 15 primary.

Coulter told Howie Carr that she was exhausted of talking about how horrible the establishment Republicans have behaved, and she was ready to accept the facts on the ground and try to save the Senate seat for the Republican Party, despite the machinations of Senate Majority Leader A. Mitchell McConnell (R.-Ky.) and his cohorts.

“I think we have to deal with making lemonade out of lemons,” she said.

“Mo Brooks is the candidate I endorsed,” she said. “He’s fantastic on the issues that you and I care about–and he’s respectable, you’re not getting any problems, the establishment shouldn’t mind him.”

Carr asked her is she was really calling for Moore to step aside or would she walk it back?

“No, no, I am not going to walk anything back, when have I ever done that? I speak what I think is true and what I think is true is what I have just laid out to you,” she said.

“It is a bit of a Todd Akin situation here,” she said. “Roy Moore is the guy the Democrats wanted to run against.

Coulter said everyone has to give up something to save the seat.

“Mo Brooks is no wide-eyed right-winger, like even a Steve Bannon, no, he is a respected congressman–until he ran for Senate this year,” she said.

Coulter did not talk about it, but it was an interesting turn of events for Brooks, when he announced for Senate and the campaign manager for Sen. Luther J. Strange III was Jeff Roe. Roe was the campaign manager for the presidential campaign of Sen. R. Edward “Ted” Cruz (R.-Texas). Brooks was the Alabama chairman of the Cruz campaign and like other Cruz supporters did not formally endorse Donald J. Trump for president. For his loyalty to Cruz, Brooks was rewarded by Brooks with vicious attack ads by the Roe-led Strange campaign–because Strange preferred to make the race head-to-head against Moore.

Moore would not step aside for Strange to step into his slot, because that would be a humiliation to the former two-time state chief justice, she said.

Carr said to Coulter that the problem is that McConnell hates Brooks, because Brooks is a conservative.

But, Coulter said she was convinced McConnell would recognize he has to accept Brooks in order to stay majority leader.

Moore faces Democrat G. Douglas Jones in the Dec. 12 special election to fill the unexpired term of the former senator Attorney General Jefferson B. “Jeff” Sessions.

Ilhan Omar’s Grandfather Was a Government Official in One of Africa’s Worst Dictatorships

Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’

Published

on

As Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar accuses American civilization of being a “system of oppression,” it appears that the progressive Democrat has provided little to no public information on her own grandfather’s activities and public duties as a government official in one of Africa’s worst dictatorships.

Omar has described her grandfather, Abukar Omar, as the Director of the National Marine Transport in Somalia in the 1980’s and possibly earlier, serving in the government of then-President Siad Barre. Barre, who took power in 1969, originally governed the country as a Marxist-Leninist before switching his Cold War allegiances to the United States in the late 70’s.

Barre’s government is known as a prolific human rights abuser, persecuting the nation’s Isaaq tribe in a series of government sponsored killings that scholars have referred to as a “forgotten genocide.” Estimates of the civilian casualties of the Isaaq genocide range from 50,000 to 200,000 people.

Omar, who was a child at the time, has also described her family leaving Somalia in 1991, the very year that President Barre was overthrown from power in a revolution that continues to have a destabilizing effect on the East African nation to this day.

It’s of some public interest that a more thorough explanation of Akubar Omar’s duties as an official serving under Siad Barre be provided, especially considering the former Barre official was granted refugee status in the United States sometime after Barre was overthrown in Somalia’s 1991 Civil War.

Omar has described her family as understanding that they were “no longer welcome” in the country as a result of the civil war, a development that may very well have come as a result of her grandfather’s work as a nominally high-ranking government official under the Barre regime. Rep. Omar recounted an incident in which what seems to have been a family compound was placed under siege by rebels who vandalized the property in a 2016 profile with the Minneapolis City Pages.

Omar biographies also suggest that some of her aunts and uncles also worked as civil servants under Barre’s government.

An inquiry into Abukar Omar’s official duties as the Director of the National Marine Transport under Barre’s regime was sent to Omar’s press office, and the Congresswoman has yet to respond as of Wednesday night.

Ilhan Omar was also one of the few Democratic members of Congress to decline to formally vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire after World War I, claiming the United States should be focusing on the legacy of slavery and persecution of Native Americans instead.

Certainly, one cannot be held to account for actions that their extended relatives engage in when they’re a child; but it’s quite rich that Omar has declined to account for her own grandfather’s seeming participation in a very real and historically documented “system of oppression” in any publicly known remarks on the family connection, while castigating American civilization for its supposed injustices.
