DERSHOWITZ: It’s Time To Primary Ilhan Omar

Published

on

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz wants controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar out of Congress.
Earlier this week, Dershowitz called for Democrats to defeat her in her next primary.
On Fox News, Dershowitz said “The Democrats must marginalize her and distance her from the center of the party. And I hope she’ll be primaried, and she should be beaten in a primary by people who support the United States and people who support American allies, rather than people who support American enemies.””

In the last few weeks, Omar has garnered controversy for asserting that the Jewish lobby has too much power in DC.

After pressure from House Democratic leaders, Omar apologized, but continued scuffling with Jewish Democratic lawmakers over the past weekend.

Congresswoman Nita Lowey called out Omar’s remarks for saying that Jewish lawmakers have an allegiance to a foreign country like Israel. Omar responded, “Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman! I have not mischaracterized our relationship with Israel, I have questioned it and that has been clear from my end.”

Dershowitz believes that Omar is misinterpreting Lowey’s support for a U.S. ally.

He continued:

“For her to accuse Jewish members of Congress and non-Jewish members of Congress of dual loyalty because they support America’s allies … would you accuse somebody of dual loyalty if they supported England, if they supported France and other American allies?”

In Dershowitz’s view, Omar pulled a “bait and switch” in the House, because she originally did not campaign on an anti-Israel platform, but is now honing in on the issue.

Indeed, Ilhan Omar’s stint in Congress has been controversial across the board.

Her efforts to challenge seasoned agents of the military-industrial complex like Elliot Abrahams are laudable, but her presence in Congress comes with a ton of baggage.

Ties to radical Islamists and other nefarious actors sully some of her otherwise sensible actions like grilling Elliot Abrams.

Although the U.S. should maintain a restrained foreign policy, it should at least lend cultural and moral support to countries like Israel. After all, Israel is the most westernized and modern nation in the Middle East.

There is validity in criticizing Israel for some of its policies, but criticizing it in order to advance pro-Islamist talking points is the not best course of action.

All things considered, it’s time that the voters of Minnesota’s 5th district relieve Omar of the burden of holding public office.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
