Congressional GOP Swamp Rats Attack President Trump Following His ‘America First’ Tweets

It’s no surprise why these guys lost so much until Trump showed up.

President Donald Trump caused an uproar over the weekend when he put radicalized anti-American Democrats on blast in a series of patriotic tweets.

Congressional Republicans, instead of having the President’s back, are rallying the troops around the extremist Democrats and echoing their talking points against Trump’s factual statements.

Reps. Bill Huizenga and Paul Mitchell of the key battleground state of Michigan issued Twitter posts of condemnation toward Trump:

The biggest loser himself, Sen. Mitt Romney (UT), also used this controversy as an excuse to levy further attacks at the President who achieved what he never could.

“What was said, and what was tweeted, was destructive, was demeaning, was dis-unifying, and frankly, was very wrong,” Romney said.

Sen. Roy Blunt (MO) issued a statement indicating that Trump should take insults from the likes of Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (MA), Rashida Tlaib (MI), Ayanna Pressley (IL), and Ilhan Omar (MN) lying down.

“Just because the so-called squad constantly insults and attacks the president isn’t a reason to adopt their unacceptable tactics,” Blunt said. “There is plenty to say about how destructive House Democrats’ policies would be for our economy, our health care system, and our security. I think that’s where the focus should be.”

Sen. Tim Scott (SC) had the nerve to play the race card against Trump.

“The President interjected with unacceptable personal attacks and racially offensive language,” Scott said in a public statement. “No matter our political disagreements, aiming for the lowest common denominator will only divide our nation further.”

Sen. Susan Collins (ME), the consummate moderate, showed no backbone once more, and threw Trump under the bus for his comments.

“The President’s tweet that some Members of Congress should go back to the ‘places from which they came’ was way over the line, and he should take that down,” she said.

Rep. Will Hurd (TX) outright called Trump’s comments “racist” during an interview with CNN’s fake news host Christiane Amanpour. He even defended the loathsome foursome as real Americans.

“I think those tweets are racist, and xenophobic,” Hurd said Monday. “They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States. Three of the four were born here. It’s also behavior that’s unbecoming of the leader of the free world. He should be talking about things that unite, not divide us.”

Sen. Pat Toomey (PA), the ‘free market’ champion who supports cheap foreign labor for his corporate donors, also vouched for the true Americanism of Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Pressley, and Omar in his statement against Trump’s remarks.

“Three of the four were born in America and the citizenship of all four is as valid as mine. I couldn’t disagree more with these congresswomen’s views on immigration, socialism, national security, and virtually every policy issue. But they are entitled to their opinions, however misguided they may be,” he said.

Other Republican legislators who have spoken out against Trump’s comments include Reps. Tom Cole (OK), Elise Stefanik (NY), Mike Turner (OH), John Katko (NY), Peter King (NY), Susan Brooks (IN), Fred Upton (MI), and Pete Olson (TX) as well as Sens. Rob Portman (OH), John Cornyn (TX), and Lisa Murkowski (AK).

Trump has ignored these complainers completely and doubled down today on calling out the extreme socialist Democrats.

In another masterful display of 4D chess, Trump has exposed the ‘America Last’ caucus of the Republican Party. The RINOs are always the first to surrender, and they are stampeding about today because of Trump’s truthful tweets.

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

Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’

Published

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.
