Ilhan Omar Speaks Terrorist Events

Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has been credibly accused of holding anti-Semitic views based on her public statements, secretly gave speeches at fundraising events of terrorism linked organizations.

Omar attended and spoke at a fundraising dinner for Islamic Relief Worldwide, a global charitable organization that nearly had its government funding stripped due to its close relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood.

She spoke at their Emergency Benefit Dinner for Yemen in Tampa, Florida on February 23, and was listed as the event’s featured speaker.

Islamic Relief Worldwide has been banned in several countries due to its close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, according to the Washington Free Beacon. While the Obama administration gave funding to the group, making it difficult to stop in the Trump administration, the group has been banned outright in the United Arab Emirates and in Israel due to its terrorist ties.

The countries believe that the organization secretly funnels its money to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Washington Free Beacon also reported that Omar spoke at an event for CAIR-CA PAC in California, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, “a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident.”

Big League Politics’ Laura Loomer traveled to California to confront Omar during the closed door speech over the weekend.

It is worth noting that while CAIR is largely considered a sponsor of terrorism, Fox News suspended Judge Jeanine Pirro after CAIR requested they do so, and that they condemn Pirro’s remarks. Pirro had simply questioned whether an individual can adhere to Sharia Law and uphold an oath to the United States Constitution.

Because of the closed doors nature of these events, Omar’s remarks are unknown, sparking more controversy for the newly minted congresswoman.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.

Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.

On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.

“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto.  “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not,  he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”

Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil.  No, no, it’s not true.   I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”

“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019.  Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.

The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago.  According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.

Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.

However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
