Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is under fire yet again after she refused to give a proper vote on a resolution condemning the Muslim butchery that the Ottoman Turks inflicted on the Armenians in the early 20th century.
Omar only voted “present” on a successful resolution that called what the Turks did to the Armenians a genocide. In her statement after the fact, she used the alleged crimes of white America as an excuse for her cowardice.

Armenian advocacy groups are not happy with Omar for her unwillingness to call out the barbarians of Turkey for the crimes perpetrated against their people, which stand amongst the worst in history.
Omar’s “votes and actions … do not represent the best of American or Muslim values,” said Van Krikorian, who co-chairs the Armenian Assembly of America. “Innocent people were and are being slaughtered, and there is a universal need to defend the victims of genocide and ethnic cleansing, not to stand with or defer to the murderers.”
“It worries us,” said Aram Hamparian, the executive director of the Armenian National Committee of America, responding to Omar’s statement in a phone interview to NBC News. “It reminds us of talking points from Ankara.”
The American Council of America believes that Omar is using “official genocide denialist rhetoric to justify her silence.” Turkish NBA player Enes Kanter, who cannot return to Turkey because he would be imprisoned due to his public criticism of Islamic dictator Recep Erdogan, blasted Omar in a social media post as well.
What an absolute disappointment and shame that the only democrat who did NOT support the Turkish bill aiming to stop the killing of innocent people is @IlhanMN who seems like on #DictatorErdogan ‘s payroll working for his interests, but not for the American people and democracy!

Even prominent liberals who have stood with Omar in the past can see that her excuses for voting present do not hold up.
Congress has passed many resolutions condemning abuses against Native Americans and slavery. It has never passed a resolution condemning the Armenian genocide. That's why Ilhan Omars explanation here rings hollow https://t.co/HztWDR8zGf

Omar’s constituents are putting her through the ringer as well for her shameful inaction.
“If [she] is going to be representing our community here, she should hear us,” said Michele Byfield Angell, the parish council chair at St. Sahag Armenian Church in St. Paul, to the Star Tribune. “If she’s voting present as acknowledging it but not doing anything about it, then what is she doing?”
The House passed the resolution, H.Res. 296, by a 405-11 vote on Tuesday. Shamefully, 11 Republican legislators voted against the resolution, which prevented the measure from being approved unanimously.
The dissent against the resolution shows that radical Islam wields considerable power over members of both major political parties in the US, but no lawmaker represents their interests more boldly than the vehemently anti-Semitic, anti-American Omar of Minnesota.
RINO Maria Salazar Challenges Former Trump Advisor Steven Miller on America First Immigration Policy
This freshman is a dangerous RINO.
Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) has barely been in the federal swamp for a month, and she is already working to undermine former president Donald Trump’s “America First” immigration agenda.
Salazar, who was a journalist with the fake news media before running for Congress, took aim at former Trump advisor Stephen Miller, who was credited as the force behind President Trump’s strongest immigration policies. She slammed Miller on a call with her House colleagues to ingratiate herself with the globalists and secure those fat Chamber of Koch checks.
Politico broke the news about the heated exchange between Salazar and Miller, which apparently continued in private as well:
Sources say Salazar pushed for immigration policies that would broaden GOP tent (they are a big tent party) while challenging Miller on how Rs can attract Hispanic and Latino voters given the ultra-conservative policies he is advocating.

Salazar is repeating her corporate-sponsored talking points, but President Trump proved her conventional wisdom wrong in 2020. Trump brought in Hispanics to the Republican Party unlike any political figure before him by standing for the rule of law against marauding Black Lives Matter terrorists and other left-wing thugs at war with civilization.
Big League Politics has reported on Hispanics supporting Trump because they understand the crime and degeneracy that illegal immigration brings to America:
The media constantly fear-mongered about president Donald Trump’s immigration policies ever since he declared his run for office and continued to do so well into his presidency.
The conventional wisdom was that these measures would repel Hispanics across the nation and turn them into a monolithic vote for the Democrat Party.
That did not turn out to be the case in 2020. Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner wrote that Trump’s immigration hawk policies “won broad bipartisan and Hispanic support in the election and even turned several border towns red for the first time in years.”
Per two reviews, a majority of Hispanics and Democrats were in favor of the Trump administration’s efforts to limit immigration during the Wuhan virus pandemic. Similarly, voters in southern border counties reacted negatively to the radical Left’s attacks levied against U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform conducted a voter exit survey, where it found that 78 percent of those surveyed believe immigration was an “important” issue for them and played a huge role in who they ended up pulling the lever for. 80 percent supported Trump’s border closure to prevent the Wuhan virus from spreading.
Similarly, Zogby Analytics released a survey showing that 60 percent of Hispanics and 54 percent of Democrats support Trump’s immigration reductions to protect American jobs. Zogby also found similar views among those surveyed about the cuts being good to “maintain our nation’s population.”
FAIR President Dan Stein believes that the election results serve as a warning to Joe Biden and his desire to open up the borders and pass an amnesty bill for the millions of illegal aliens residing in the U.S.
“The election results clearly do not indicate that President-elect Biden has a mandate to institute radical immigration policies being promoted by his party’s far-left wing that include erasing borders and flooding the country with millions of new legal and illegal immigrants,” Stein declared. The FAIR president cited a 76 percent supermajority of those surveyed who are in favor of immigration restriction.
By standing against immigration patriotism and the MAGA agenda, Salazar has exposed herself as a RINO. She will be promoted by the GOP establishment along other frauds like Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) as they attempt to nullify President Trump’s legacy.
